Charles March – who under the name Charles Settrington was a leading advertising photographer, marks his return to photography with this exhibition. ‘Nature Translated’ is about ‘the way that art transmutes nature and nature transmutes art’.
Edward Lucie Smith said “This new series of large scale images in black and white and colour employs his chosen medium with medium with extreme boldness and originality. Some people will be reminded of traditional Chinese ink paintings. Others of the ‘colour beginnings’ made by the great English landscape painter J.M.W Turner. Through this new work Charles March expresses a profound feeling for nature.”
Alongside ‘Nature Translated’ Crisis Skylight phototographers will be interpreting the themes explored by Charles March in their own exhibition.
The entrance to the vast Crisis warehouse glows with light and colour and the greeting scene, High Wood 2, throbs with bright greens and citric yellows. The alley of trees is illuminated by light beams seeming to move among the spindly trunks. In the main gallery, Lake Como shifts from figurative into abstraction, a tangle of sharp and blurry black branches brightened by clusters of young leaves. There is a sense of painted canvases throughout the exhibition.
