This week Rialto Living kicked off its first art exhibition of 2017 with a showing of Adrian Elgie’s ‘Mis Nuevas Vistas - A Bright New Vista’ and I was kindly invited to visit the opening night. Adrian is an English contemporary landscape artist and, having seen some examples of his paintings and read his background of moving to Mallorca from Cambridgeshire (my home county) to rekindle a romance with his former art college sweetheart on the island, I was keen to find out more.
In Elgie's own words, “My work aims to capture the perpetual changes and transitions in nature, due to the weather, season and all its subtleties. I do this with loose brush strokes, first marks and last marks, transparent overlays and an uneasy balance of finished and unfinished areas of work. Painting over and outside the lines, both mentally and literally, my work represents the way I look and feel about the world around me.”
