The official opening will be from 2pm-4pm on the Saturday and the exhibition will be displayed in our gallery until the 2nd of March.

Pamela Burns was born in London in 1938 and now lives in Pembrokeshire. She studied at the Royal Academy schools, later teaching at St Martin’s and Chelsea College of art, and has exhibited at the Cairn gallery in Nailsworth, a formative centre for land artists such as Richard long and Hamish Fulton. The long list of other places she has shown includes the Hayward Gallery and A.I.A., and solo exhibitions at the Barbican and Jonathan Clarkes fine art. Her paintings can be seen at Jenna Burlingham fine art.

David Field was born in London in 1937 and now lives in Pembrokeshire. He studied painting at St Martins School of Art in 1955-‘59 and the Royal Academy Schools from 1959-‘62. In 1962 he worked as a designer and a photographer for Sir Frederick Gibberd. In 1980 he went on to work part time as a senior lecturer in drawing at Sir John Cass. Since 2001 he has shown paintings at Archeus Fine Art London and solo exhibitions at Browse & Darby in London in 2005- 2009 and Oliver Contemporary Fine Art London from 2008-2012. Work is in private collections in U.K. Europe and U.S.A. and also in the Victoria & Albert Museum – Photographic Collection.

There are ridges and rhythms in Pamela Burns paintings that seem to come from the very depths of the landscape: lines and shapes that draw you back to Neolithic slopes and coastal tide markings. It is a viscerally felt world, of earthly truths, where Land meats sea, and sea sky. A world where one is led far beyond landscape, to ideas of other frontiers, and on to the realms of colour, form and texture that make up the language of abstraction.
