  • About this work of Art

    Bantham Beach , South Devon. My inspiration for Bantham Beach came from visiting it on a perfect day, when the sun was out and the surf was up, the light looking out to sea was at the same time soft misty lilacs, and blinding silver . The canvas itself measures 60 x 60 cm and is acrylic,mixed medium, carborundum, sand, and silver leaf. It is framed in a white box frame

    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.
