An exhibition exploring the natural and man-made aspects of Lincolnshire’s landscape has opened at Sleaford’s Carre Gallery.

The joint showcase, titled Nature and Structure, features the work of local artists Robin Hall and Martin Cameron.

The pair, who met through their involvement with the Carre Gallery, observe different facets to the world around them. Robin works with a variety of media including watercolour, oil and pencil, and is drawn to nature; Martin, meanwhile, uses photography to concentrate on architectural details.

Martin said: “Robin and I often take trips out to Lincolnshire locations with a view to creating images. We came to realise that, although we might share the same location, we observe very different things. Robin notices wildlife that I am oblivious to. I tend to look at the detail of buildings and other man-made features.”

Robin said: “My paintings are greatly influenced by the Lincolnshire landscape, its skies, and the wildlife that lives there. I enjoy going for walks in the countryside both around Sleaford, and further afield at places such as Gibraltar Point (where I was a volunteer in the late 90s), and Donna Nook.”

The exhibition runs until next Saturday.
