‘Passages of Light’: Exhibition of Paintings by Cambridge Artist Oliver Soskice
On the 8th of June ‘Passages of Light’, a new exhibition of oil paintings by the Cambridge artist Oliver Soskice goes on show. A deep experience of landscape lies behind these paintings as well as a sophisticated understanding of still life, and represents work done over the last ten years. This free exhibition can be found in the internal courtyard and in the common room of the main building; it is open 10am- 5pm and runs until 20th of July, with a colour catalogue available for purchase.
“These paintings draw on my familiarity with the landscapes of Cambridgeshire, with their long horizons and stately cloud formations,” Oliver Soskice writes. “They are abstract in the sense of being distilled from the visible world. My exhibition also includes a selection of still lifes that take simple things for subject matter – wine bottles, jugs, apples and shells. There is a long tradition of finding a rare beauty in things to be found in the ordinary run of life.”
