Zennor Calling (II) is an original work by Mary Scott. This is the second in a series of four abstract landscapes inspired by the cliff path between the busy harbour town of St Ives and the remote village of Zennor, some six miles to the south west. The Zennor walk was one of the first walks I did when I first started spending time in the St Ives area, some years ago, and it quickly became one of my favourites. On a ‘blue sky and turquoise sea kind of day’, every twist and turn and every up and down along the rugged path rewards with achingly beautiful views. But I am all too aware of the stormy sky and sea that make this quite an inhospitable and foreboding place when the weather changes. This second painting in the series evokes the eerie beauty of the landscape in stormy weather, as if the ancient rocky boulders are guarding the path that leads on and on along the increasingly rugged and remote Penwith coastline. The work will be framed in a dark grey blue wood tray frame.

Mary Scott artist with Wychwood Art. Mary Scott comments "I have had a lifelong love of being immersed in ancient landscapes and wild places, enhanced by reading earth sciences at university which led to opportunities in my early career to study rocks and landforms both in the UK and abroad. I now enjoy using a variety of mixed media, mainly acrylic paints with inks, charcoal and pencil, to produce semi-abstract landscapes. I particularly enjoy exploring contrasts of colour and light between the ancient solid rock and landscape, and the ever-changing wild energy of sea and sky. My approach to painting is largely intuitive and spontaneous. I may start out with a sense of direction, but then investigate colour, shape and textural mark-making in an open and exploratory way through the course of 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 helps to develop contrasts between the ancient permanence of rock formations, landscapes developing through time, and the present and future possibilities of the elements above. Recalling memory, experience and emotion of special places, captured and imprinted on my mind, I am also drawn to new discoveries. 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, and return there regularly, always coming away refreshed and invigorated by its dramatic beauty in every season. Following training in collage and acrylic/mixed media painting with teachers here in the Cotswolds, I have engaged in international web-enabled art courses during Covid-19. During late 2020 and 2021, I am excited to be heading down each month to St Ives to take up my place on the year-long mentored Porthmeor Programme at the School of Painting."
