Artist and photographer Marly Jackson will be exhibiting her work at the Old Lifeboat House, Porthleven, from Saturday 17 to Friday 23 March 2018.

Marly lived in the village until the age of twenty five (she’s now thirty) and although she no longer lives there it holds a huge place in her heart and will always be home.

This will be the third time she has shown her work at the Old Lifeboat House, and in her opinion it’s the best place to host an exhibition: “Even on a wet and windy day it’s amazing being down there, surrounded by the sea.”

“Expressionistic landscapes and seascapes” is how Marly describes her paintings. Full of colour and texture, she has a loose but intended style, enjoying the imperfections in her work, discovering and exaggerating them where possible.

Using a carefully selected colour palette she creates an individual sense of atmosphere and emotion within each piece.

Her paintings are influenced through some of her photography work, where through fine art imagery she captures natural elements; colours, shapes and patterns. She also specialises in an amalgamation of documentary, photojournalism and travel photography; a selection of which will be showed during the exhibition.

The exhibition will be open daily from 11am to 5pm, see for practical information.
