Richard Billingham: Panoramic, Exhibition of New Photographs

Towner Gallery, Eastbourne, 24th April - 28th June

Prof Richard Billingham shows a new body of photographs called Panoramic based on the British landscape at the Towner Gallery, Eastbourne, 24th April - 28th June 2015. Private view Friday the 24th, 6.30 - 8.30pm with speeches and refreshments.

Capturing the British countryside, from the South Downs to the Norfolk Fen and Constable’s Country in the East of England, Richard Bilingham’s photographs expose the rich textures in these landscapes. His panoramic views unearth the particular geology, vegetation, changing weather and light conditions of these places, some of which he revisited over a period of years.

The works in Panoramic have a visceral aesthetic, revealing Billingham’s emotional and creative relationship to nature and landscape and drawing on his background and sensibilities as a painter. They explore rhythm, pattern, repetition and dynamic composition as well as the tableaux in nature and often record a transformative moment in the landscape.
