LAST CHANCE: Louise Cattrell: Another Place at Payne Shurvell Gallery

Leaving the hustle and bustle of the genteel streets of Marylebone and stepping into Payne Shurvell’s exhibition of ethereal paintings by Scottish Artist Louise Cattrell, is like being transported into a parallel universe of calm and beauty.  Her mystical paintings for me evoke the dreamy landscapes of Claude, and critic Laura Cumming has even compared Cattrell to J M W Turner.  Like Turner, Cattrell is concerned with the changes in landscapes created by the season or time of day, and she explores the notion of ‘Landscape’ as an ideal.

Harking back to the days of Romanticism, Cattrell’s deft oils of landscapes and seascapes in her native Scotland, and sweeping Swiss mountains possess meditative qualities that provide a perfect way to escape from the trials and tribulations of everyday life.

Payne Shurvell’s new West End exhibition space is an unexpected surprise situated above Carousel, a pop up restaurant serving up delicacies by chef du jour Bjorn van der Horst, so you can get inspired by the art upstairs, before tucking into delicacies downstairs.  A perfect combination of visual and culinary delights.

Louise Cattrell was born in Glasgow and has an MA in Fine Art from the RCA in London.  Her work is in the collections of the Scottish Arts Council, Reuters, London, and the Ministry of Defence, London.

Louise Cattrell: Another Place is at PayneShurvell Gallery, 71 Blandford Street, London W1 Open by appointment only until 29th May 2015
