New paintings Exhibition opening 13th August, Switzerland by Sam Foley

'This exhibition marks my return to Solothurn after last years Altes Spital residency, with a collection of works that look closely at the historically famous brunnen (fountains) that pepper this beautiful baroque city. I tend to step back to paint a landscape. Here, stepping forward to where water meets water and light plays across the surface, this exploration is a move away from my usual approach, more still-life than landscape painting.'
