Nearing Zennor is a contemporary acrylic painting on board by Mary Scott.
It is a semi-abstract landscape inspired by the stretch of the South West Coast Path leading to the tiny village of Zennor from St Ives.
Recalling memory, experience and emotion of special places, captured and imprinted on my mind, is very important to me when I paint. In the last few years, I have been particularly inspired by the energy of the wild cliffs and coves of the north coast of Cornwall. I always leave Cornwall refreshed and invigorated by its dramatic beauty.
I have had a lifelong love of being immersed in ancient landscapes and wild places, enhanced by reading earth sciences at university. My approach to painting is largely intuitive. I may start out with a sense of direction, but then investigate colour, shape and textural mark-making in an open and exploratory way, building thicker and thinner layers of paint and glazes, before scraping back to discover what lies beneath. This process of revealing glimpses, half-hidden things and curious marks develops contrasts between the ancient permanence of rock formations, landscapes developing through time, and the present and future possibilities of the elements above.
Based in Shipton-under-Wychwood in the Cotswolds, I visit Cornwall as often as I can. In 2020-21, I am excited to be heading regularly to St Ives where I will be taking part in the year-long mentored Porthmeor Programme at the School of Painting.
