”At the Edge” is a new collection of works from Leila Godden, in response to an artist residency at Brisons Veor, Cape Cornwall. The painting above is featured in House and Garden Magazine (Art Edit, August 2018 issue, on sale 5 July).

Her large canvases convey the scale and drama of the place, while smaller works consider the contrast between vantage points from the cliff tops to the rocky beach at the edge of the land and the vast Atlantic Ocean.

Her large canvases convey the scale and drama of the place, while smaller works consider the contrast between vantage points from the cliff tops to the rocky beach at the edge of the land and the vast Atlantic Ocean.

She says “Cape Cornwall welcomed me with a show of breathtaking magnificence. I breathed in the elements and abandoned myself to the sensations of wind, pounding waves, endless sky and vast craggy rocks. The early morning sun lit up distant tiny scuds of white against the darkness of the brooding sea. The weather enveloped me, chortling with its ability to impress”.

Her paintings are also showcased in “Inside Artists” magazine, Summer 2018. You can see more here.
