  • About this work of Art

    Maggie La Porte Banks.
    A Winters day at Crosby Beach.
    Acrylic and mixed medium on box canvas.
    W. 30 cm x H. 25 cm . X D. 4 cm.
    Initial sketches of a Winters day were made at Crosby Beach near Liverpool, in response to the Anthony Gormsley installation ‘Another place ‘ .
    Later reworked in my Devon studio, into an abstract piece, but keeping to the original shapes and delicate colours of winter.
    Insitu images are purely an indication of how a piece may look.

    Maggie LaPorte Banks artist comments: “My Art is routed in landscape, influenced by childhood memories of Donegal, by Lough Swilly, surrounded by dark mountains. I spent ten years living near to the Brecons Beacons and painting using a tent as a studio in all seasons. For over thirteen years I was an artist in residence in a cottage on the end of Cape Cornwall overlooking the Brisons at different times of the year. Therefore, I have a vast amount of passion for the skies, sea and mountains which I love to involve within my paintings. My recent works have been developed from these roots and are becoming much more abstract, focusing on ‘the essence of place’ through the colours I use and emotions I have created. I work mainly in oils, acrylic and mixed media, sometimes adding unique materials such as sand, carborundum, iron fillings and many other products I feel the work dictates.
