A tremendous storyteller and traveller who takes notes in form of sketches and watercolours to record life as it changes. He has a deep admiration for wildlife and is a highly skilled painter. The exhibition will show his little gems of sketches from his extensive travels this year.
Dutch artist and wayfarer Jacques Gregoire records nature and the undisturbed landscape wherever he goes, sketchbook in hand. His sketches depict a loving recreation of forests, fields, beaches, lakes, hills and dales highlighting the beauty of nature but also the significance of climate change. Jacques is a highly skilled painter and a true archivist of nature.
The exhibition will showcase Jacques’ stunning watercolours and oil paintings taken from his travels covering his journey of 3000 kilometres in the footsteps of Patrick Leigh Fermor as well as his most recent walk of 1000 kilometres from Amsterdam to the west coast of Ireland.
'Back in my studio I try to make the landscapes I have seen come alive again. For me they are not a depiction of a landscape, they are the landscape'.
