Includes essays by leading art historians Andrew Lambirth, Judith LeGrove and Christiana Payne

  • Portrait of England’s south coast by one of Britain’s leading landscape painters
  • Fully illustrated in colour including works on panel and paper
  • Places Gardiner’s work in the context of historic and contemporary approaches to the coastal landscape
  • Looks at the formative influence of poster art and popular guidebooks on Gardiner’s long term interest of coastal landscape by curators Gill Saunders and Steve Marshall

Gardiner’s work reflects a deep, long-term interest in the geology of landscape and how it is shaped by the forces of nature. The incorporation of tiny man-made architectural features – a lighthouse, cottage or tin mine chimney remind us how small and recent mankind’s intervention has been. Gardiner’s working method involves creating distinct layers of colour by building accretions of paint, collaging, scouring and sanding down in an attempt to emulate on the surface of the paintings, the effects of geological time on the terrain.
