    Freehold by Kenneth Webb

    Oil on Canvas; 10" x 14" / 25cms x 36cms

     

    Webb’s favourite places are all where the weather plays freely; unfettered by the resistance of humans; such as the West of Ireland and the open wilds of Dartmoor. There; wind and water shape the land; stripping away the cultivated and superficial and exposing bare rock. Indeed; only the strongest rocks survive the worst ravages of weather; predominantly granite and bluestone. Webb has always loved these rocks. In particular; he is fascinated by the monumental element of the stone against the other elements; and the textural contrast of their surfaces. Most of his rock studies - be they small outcrops or towering mountains - are therefore set against the delicate transparent texture but intense colour of wildflowers; or against the smooth; powerful movement of water as sea or lake. This balance of elements epitomises the harmony that exists in Nature without intervention; and which allows the soul to breathe easily.

     

    Even where Webb undertakes human encroachment; such as a farm or harbour scene; he will surely accentuate pitted; lichen-spotted rocks as reminder of the more powerful forces that cannot - should not - be overlooked.
