The Wool Towns Advent – December 14

Lavenham Contemporary | Lavenham

Welcome to The Wool Towns Advent – each day, between now and Christmas Eve, we will be opening the doors on one of the region’s shining stars. Oh come all ye faithful, sing in exultation!

Decades of familiarity has enabled artist Paul Evans to showcase nature in all her glory. But it is his innate skill, and this sense of place, that allows him to incorporate the sounds, smells and atmosphere of one specific moment which is most impressive.

So many artists paint landscapes, but for Paul it is not just about bringing to life the scene set out before him. He has taken an age-old subject and enables us to be part of it, to see it through his eyes as our senses become alert to his vantage point.

Paul Evans is a rare artist. He manages to lift you out of the confines of your own life to be transported next to him, perceiving the land through his eyes. For a few moments we too step back and watch the scene before us fall into focus and perspective. Captivating and honest, Paul’s vision allows us to find ourselves at one with nature, and finally discover our own true sense of place.

Paul Evans is one of our most successful landscape painters at work in Britain today. His unique and original style has evolved over an artistic career of 45 years and reflects his infectious joy at recording and learning from nature.
