My inspiration was the contrast of the smoothness and angle of the field, coming down into the scrub of the riverbank, framed by the strong shapes in the hedgerow with the tree at the bottom. The chaos and 'wild mess' of grasses and rushes lining the riverbank; the profusion of early summer in Somerset.
Hillside meets river bank by Tin Odescalchi
Tin Odescalchi's paintings fall within the traditional conception of landscape composition but also display a primary concern for the performance of the paint itself. Tin works with great immediacy direct from the subject with bold mark-making. Tin’s work has its roots in the tradition of Constable and Turner, but is characterised by the handling of paint more recognisable in artists such as Auerbach, and Freud. Tin has exhibited with many notable galleries both nationally and internationally. Tin’s landscapes are a beautiful addition to any room.
