Duncan Rice exhibition "Animals as Landscape"
"Observing ponies, cows and sheep enduring the moor in all weathers, has instilled a great respect in me for these familiar creatures. The starkness of the moor is made more vivid by their presence, and they in turn are given a “charisma of Wildness” (to quote the naturalist writer Richard Mabey) by Dartmoor, although the focus of the current exhibit falls firmly on the animals themselves ."


The exhibition will include numerous sketches made on the moor over the past 7 years. There will also be examples of drawings and finished paintings that have been developed from these sketches.
