Noel Ashton's Country Gallery

Unique artworks from the countryside

The gift of the creatives is to offer signposts and metaphors that can take us to places where we can connect to that which is important to us; the painting on a wall or the form of a sculpture is much more than just an object of beauty, they are visual reminders of what brings us joy and meaning in our lives.

To enter the country landscape is to awaken to a world so many have forgotten, a place of birdsong and crisp dawns, of grazing cattle and horses that watch silently as you pass by, of egrets at dusk and the calling of an owl summoning the night. It is a place of wide open spaces and small, intimate detail.

As an artist it is a place of inspiration born of generations living close to the land. And the artworks expressions of the longing of so many to slow down to the pace of bringing the cattle home at the end of the day, and lighting a warming fire in the hearth. It is a return to stillness.
