Inspired by the northern coast of Cornwall and in particular Polzeath, Salt Rush reflects the deep blue colours of the cornish ocean. The use of oil paint allows the layers to convey a sense of movement and depth whilst the aerial perspective creates an usual abstract composition.
Lenny Cornforth original art paintings for sale with Wychwood Art online and through their gallery in Oxfordshire. Endlessly enthralled by the Atlantic ocean, Lenny Cornforth takes inspiration from the northern coast of Cornwall, using layers of translucent colour and texture to construct vibrant and emotional paintings evoking the joyful colours of the landscape around her. Working in both oil and acrylic each piece develops gradually, each layer establishing the shapes within the painting.
A keen sailor and surfer, Lenny often draws on her own experiences in the sea, days walking the costal paths and summers lying in the sand to inform her compositions. Much of her work is based on the Camel Estuary where she learnt to sail.
After graduating from Newcastle University with a degree in Fine Art, Lenny has exhibited widely in the UK including Oxford Castle, Edinburgh Art Fair, Waterperry Gardens and the Scin Gallery in London. Nonetheless she has always been drawn back to Cornwall, where she currently lives near Bodmin with her husband and son, two dogs and 50 dorset sheep.
