‘The paintings of the Immigrants were inspired by the epic painting the ‘Raft of Medusa’ by Theodore Gericault, a tragic story of a shipwreck from the 1818/19, which hangs in the Louvre, and contemporary photographs from the internet of immigrants fleeing their homes with nothing but their lives. The images have such similarities despite them being 200 years apart, it fills me with compassion and makes me wonder what their lives and stories they have left behind are’.
– Rebecca Scott, 2022.

Light and Land
by Juliet Klottrup
In association with Kendal Mountain Festival 2023
8 November to 9 December 2023
‘Light and Land’ A new photographic and painting exhibition by a local artist Juliet Klottrup.
Juliet immerses herself in the region, capturing its essence through landscapes, portraiture, and abstract compositions. Her images not only depict raw rural landscapes but also the people deeply connected to the land.
Meticulously captured with an analogue camera on medium format film, these photos serve as a contemporary archive, reflecting a unique moment in our evolving history.
In the transition from photos to paintings, Juliet translates sensory experiences into abstract art, infusing her canvases with vibrant colour, light, and movement.
“Light and Land” beautifully explores the relationship between the local natural world and the human connections it inspires.
