PAINTER: MARY BLUE – based in Wells-Next-the-Sea, North Norfolk – imagines human activity in the seascapes she paints. Farmers and fisherman are never shown on the shoreline in her compositions, but they are represented in her handwritten thoughts written in blue biro buried within the painted folds of each marshland expanse. Her paint is applied in generous smears, slurps and splashes over expertly drawn, softer veils of underpainting. The clarity of the coastal air, its eddies and squalls feel part of her vision, somehow described in the vigour of her brushstrokes.
