Don’t miss this exhibition, at the Royal Cornwall Museum until June 30th, of drawings, paintings and sketches by environmental artist Tony Plant – a prolific creator of transient, whole beach sand drawings.
Plant is regularly invited to ‘make work’ on beaches across Cornwall. Now, the Royal Cornwall Museum has curated a collection off his work based on the Cornish coastline and his experience of moving through it, one step at time, which is inspiration for exhibition title: WALK. STOP. WALK.
One of the things we love about Plant’s work is that it brings together – so beautifully and (apparently) effortlessly – two of Cornwall’s greatest assets: its rich artistic culture and its stunning coastline. His work, with its light touch and eco ethos, is helping to grow Cornwall’s reputation as a place that is as artistically rich today as it ever was in the heyday of the Newlyn School, the St Ives School or Barbara Hepworth.
