Global Warming Exhibition

Prue Bishop had to keep largely isolated during the pandemic of 2020/2021 which has prevented her from straying far from home. She has therefore produced for us a series of Sculptural Watercolour® paintings that draw attention to the greatest threat of all to our life on our plenet: Global Warming. With her gallery closed, and her need to remain isolated well into 2021, she presents an extensive exhibition of work on-line for your interest and enjoyment. Please therefore tell your friends and colleagues about this special on-line exhibition.

Having lived in the Alpine region for over four decades, she is acutely aware of the starkly worrying changes that have occurred in her own lifetime that she began highlighting some years ago. And now she extends this into our Polar Regions: Greenland, The Arctic and The Antarctic. Her guides are the vast body of research and photographic material written, supported and sponsored by such as The Scott Polar Research Institute and NASA. Even the present pandemic is dwarfed by the long-term threat to our planetary existence.

Volcano Exhibition

The artist's study of eruptions from volcanos and the associated lava flows in 2007 resulted in some remarkable Sculptural Watercolour® paintings that above all included successful experimentation to arrive at the needed intensity of the colours. Just this point alone makes these works unique, but added to this is the extraordinary handling of water, pigment and paper to arrive at previously unknown special effects.

Mediterranean Exhibition

The multitude of blues of the Mediterranean Sea and the special sandy colours of the shoreline captured in this series of impressions will be recognised by those familiar with this region.

Chartreuse Exhibition

The Chartreuse is known for a particular shade of green. But on visiting this region one is struck by the extraordinary range of greens - which are captured in this group of paintings - conveying to us that special sense of 'place'.

Alps Exhibition

This large exhibition of Sculptural Watercolour® landscapes of Alpine locations is the result of four decades of journeys through the Swiss Cantons, France (Savoy and Grenoble) Italy (Aosta and Piedmont) and beyond. The artist continues to add to this series.

Turner Research

In the process of studying locations for her Sculptural Watercolour® paintings, Prue Bishop has recognised the subjects of many JMW Turner works for the first time. To this task too, she has brought her usual impressive thoroughness, studying at first hand around 2000 of his sketches and watercolours from the Turner Bequest that this foremost of European artists left to the public. Her research papers bring an artist's insight into what is normally the preserve of the art historian. She and her several volunteer helpers have collected a vast body of information over the past decade, and the work of reviewing, distilling and writing continues.
