Featured artist in June at Larks Gallery in Ballater is Peter Nardini, who works with acrylic paint on board using a dry brush technique, working from a dark surface through to colour and light with an awareness of the effectiveness of the contrast between strong shadow and bright sunlight. He is drawn to the mystery and intrigue the American artist Edward Hopper created with the presence of figures in his compositions and to the drama, simplicity and timelessness of Hopper’s landscapes. 

Nardini’s own landscapes and seascapes are the result of travels to Tuscany, France, Switzerland and Southern California, with bright sunlight, poppy fields, terracotta roofs and sandy beaches becoming simple, yet evocative shapes singing with colour.
