A Walk In The Park

October 10 – October 31, 2020

Perhaps it’s no surprise that an artist who paints urban subjects might at this moment shift his attention to one that embodies a pause in the narrative of urban living : parks and gardens McVinish says “ So often parks and gardens are the identity and soul of a town or city. They’re more important than ever for the sense of freedom they offer - literal physical space, but a mental space too, a place to throw off concerns, just to breath, take in beauty and peace... hear the sound of birdsong, kid’s laughter... gaze on picnickers, lovers strolling, joggers or the happy aimlessness of walkers, or someone just sitting quietly. They offer us a place for revitalisation and contemplation, giving us moments of awareness and quiet in a world that doesn’t stop talking. So many of us have memories, too, of being taken to parks as a kid and if you were lucky enough to be in one that had a pond full of ducks or a fountain it was a particular kind of joy... As an adult that feeling can come flooding back - maybe it’s that parks make us feel like kids again a little bit.”
