The abstract landscapes of Peter Lanyon upturn the rigours of perspective, exploiting the colour and texture of paint to burrow into the gritty layers of meaning present within his native Cornish homeland. Neither scenic nor picturesque nor figurative, Lanyon worked into the paint his emotive engagement with places he knew well, providing immediate portraits of their character that are both tightly lyrical and distinctly raw in their execution.
