During the month of April, Left Bank Gallery Essex is honored to feature the work of young Connecticut artist Paul Batch. Batch creates traditional landscape paintings in oil, poetically capturing the fleeting and ephemeral light cast by the passing sun or rising moon. The artist focuses on transition, painting times of day or changing weather conditions and their dramatic effects upon the natural and uninhabited landscape. Batch says he is, "drawn to the beauty of transitional moments in time....twilight, a passing storm, the moon rising. The beauty comes in part from our awareness that these moments of transition are fleeting." Batch is an elected member of the Connecticut Academy of Fine Art and has won numerous awards inculding a Gold Medal from the Connecticut Plein Air Society.
"Paul Batch: Fleeting Light" runs from April 1st-31st
Meet the Artist : Saturday, April 10th from 4-6pm.
