LOTTA TEALE: MEDITERRANEAN LIGHT

6-15 MARCH 2024

"This, my second exhibition with Panter & Hall, brings together works painted over the last two years under the warm sun of the Mediterranean. In 2022 I moved to Jerusalem, and it has been an unparalleled opportunity to spend cloudless days under blue skies, painting golden stone and lilac shadows, to stand among palm trees, olives groves, bougainvillea, wild thyme and cyclamen, orange trees and cypress, set against distant mountains.

Painting plein air, I would take my easel out early or in the heat of the day and get to spend hours trying to capture the overall sense of place, from the very composition to a particular moving shadow. Many paintings would be a race towards midday, the cut off point as shadows flip and the scene alters irrevocably – or towards sunset, when the warming glow gets ever richer and the contrast a clearer blue, and time speeds up into a frenzy of brushes as light changes by the second. Other days I would stay at home and paint in my studio, savouring the high domed ceilings of the beautiful Ottoman house in East Jerusalem we’ve been lucky enough to live in, light flooding through the windows - or head out to the terrace to paint still lifes, a constant array of local fruit and vegetables to hand.

Being based here has created a starting point for longer trips, be it day trips to the sea, taking a short drive out to the desert for the early evening light, or further afield to neighbouring countries. As an artist, it’s been a truly extraordinary time, and I hope I have managed to capture that sense in some of my paintings. In a place so rich in beauty, but also sadness, we can all just hope for a more peaceful time soon."            Lotta Teale, February 2024
