New Ground: Discoveries in Landscape offers new view of London and further afield

London must be one of the most 'captured' cities in the world, with artists continually inspired by its architecture, inhabitants and skyline. However, each interpretation, whether that be a photograph, a sketch or a painting, offers an alternative view of the same destination.

In Wendy Brooke-Smith's latest series, New Ground: Discoveries in Landscape, she transforms the city with bright colours and a minimalist style. The buildings on the banks of the River Thames have been simplified to give way to the natural beauty of the water and sky.

Other pieces highlight rolling fields and hills, which, juxtaposed against the cityscapes, offers an interesting mix of scenery.

The new works will be featured in a solo exhibition from 21- 25 November 2017 at the Menier Gallery, London.
