Seascapes by Merilyn Brason
The exhibition runs from 19th May to 27th June 2021. Opening times are 11-4pm Wednesdays through Sundays. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
Merilyn paints seascapes, skyscapes, and waves using the medium of oil paints. She lives and paints in an old stone cottage between Cirencester and Stroud, a hundred light years away from the sea in all its moods and beauty.
One of her earliest memories is of the smell of paint, the almost-tangible air of concentration and the magic of watching images appear from paper as she watched her mother studying Chinese art under a traditional Chinese tutor in Beijing where the family lived when she was a young girl.
Her parents’ extensive travels meant Merilyn spent time in countries and landscapes from China to Africa and the weald of Kent.
Her passion for the sea materialised in her early teens when the family moved to Jersey in the Channel Islands and that “world of cliffs, rocks, sand and the endless ceaselessly fascinating rhythm of the sea”.
