Sasse and Dober
‘Recent Landscapes’ brings together the paintings of two plein air artists; highlighting the distinction between looking and seeing. Interpreting experience into form these artists draw on the familiar world around us, creating new visions.
I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Gallery, with its elegant light-filled rooms, garden views and great selection of contemporary paintings.
Dober’s simplified annotated forms convey the energy of an encounter.
