Why Landscapes should feature in your collection

Explore Hancock Galleries’ top four landscape artists that create works transcending expectations of what landscape art can be, as well as how this genre of art can fit into your collection.

After spending a year indoors, we've all fantasised about being somewhere else. For those moments missed, whether they be of clarity, beauty, nostalgia, fun or another feeling gained from encountering different landscapes.
 
Here are our top four landscape artists whose works transcend expectations of what landscape art can and out advice on how this genre of art can fit into your collection.
Elizabeth Power is a British artist whose landscapes combine both fauvist and impressionist styles. Her colourful pieces are inspired by the landscapes she experiences in her daily life. Transforming the moody landscapes of Southern England into bright and picturesque holiday destinations, we all wish we'd had a similar lockdown view.

Jesse Dayan is an Australian artist motivated by making his feelings visible through art. Coming in the form of flowers, indoor landscapes, or domesticated outdoor gatherings, these emotions present a raw aesthetic which surprise even the artist himself. His process of improvising and following possibilities begins with drawing; allowing the transcendence of perspectival logic and giving freedom to creative possibilities of the internal to be seen. Jesse also has a keen interest in the narrative functioning of images with the co-existence of presence and absence.

Kerr Ashmore is a British landscape and abstract artist creating reflections of nature, memory, and emotion. Spending her childhood in North Yorkshire, close to both the moors and the North Sea, her daily life was engulfed by natural beauty and inspiration. These ever-changing environments with dramatic movement of both light and dark inspired Kerr’s paintings and the emotive attachment to her memories here.

Noelle Phares is an American artist with a background in local environmental science. Becoming tired of office life, drawing and painting became more than just a hobby at the weekends, it became her driving force. Her abstract paintings explore our impact on the natural world, and are inspired by the places she's visited, two-demensional locations, and plaves that are made up entirely. These are layered with line patterns, tiny human figures, and architectural structures. Her background in agri-tech changed her perspective on landscape, gaining an understanding that the landscapes are a result the past and the present. The multi-layered imagery Noelle creates break down landscapes into stacked data layers, especially those that are more geometric.
 
Landscape art can be about a specific place, a collection of places or completely made up. Whether you enjoy Landscape art for the emotion, colour, style or texture, we have it all at Hancock Gallery.
