The colours might be slightly more whimsical and the visual furniture, lessened to a certain pictorial degree, but there’s still no mistaking Paul Corfield’s heightened illustrative understanding and touch in this, the critically acclaimed contemporary landscape artist’s brand new release for September 2014. Entitled, ‘The House by the Sea’, this melancholy artistic tales centres around Corfield’s omnipresent single white rural dwelling as it has done so many times previously, yet never once sought in a predictable light.
On this splendidly isolated occasion the house receives star billing, standing proud and tall atop the single hillock, as its occupants gaze restfully over the impending day’s end and perhaps the distant plotted sail boat. Signed by the cultured hand of Corfield himself, this giclee on canvas representation is limited to just 195 editions, which we have our suspicions will disappear quicker than we can pen a description about its very presence. So interest-registering time is of the essence.
