David Tress is a master at capturing the drama of the Welsh landscape. His striking mixed media paintings and graphite drawings are displayed in A Retrospective exhibition.
Tress is a British Romantic in a truest sense in that he understands how landscape can be an eloquent vehicle for human emotion and passion. This ethos translates in his resonant grasp of colour and bold handling of media whereby the landscape remerges onto his canvas and paper in great swathes of pigment and layers of collage.
