"Summer Flowers at Charlestown Harbour” is an original acrylic ink painting on watercolour paper by Cornwall based artist Liz Hackney. The harbour is part of the famous UNESCO World Heritage Site on the south coast of Cornwall, which is well known as a filming location for the BBC TV period drama series Poldark. The flowers grow out of the cracks along the harbour wall and add a real pop of colour to the granite walls in the summer.
This painting comes in a double mount with a white decorative frame and is glazed with ArtGlass AR70 anti reflection glass.
Measurements: image size approx 36 cm x 36 cm. Outer frame approx 58 cm x 58 cm.
About the artist
Liz Hackney studied at Somerset College Of Art & Technology gaining a B.A. (Hons) in Textiles and Surface Pattern Design during the mid 1990's. After spending a couple of years in Wiltshire she moved to Cornwall in 1997 setting up a small studio in St. Agnes on the north coast. During this time she developed her unusual technique using tissue paper and inks to create detailed textured collages and paintings.
She later moved to Charlestown on the south coast of Cornwall and on her 30th birthday she opened Atishoo Gallery and Picture Framers with her parents Mike & Jenny. They have now retired and she runs the gallery with her partner and fellow artist Paul Clark. The gallery celebrates 20 years at this location in 2023.
