Description

Paul Landacre strikes a keen balance between sensuality and comfortable familiarity, portraying his wife Margaret and their pet cat lounging in a patch of sunlight coming through the open door of their mountain home, Margaret nude and reading. The only suggestion of civilization outside of their home is the crooked telephone pole in the distance standing sentry alongside two fir trees. Landacre's preoccupation with nature, home, and human desire in his artwork is rendered in a quiet confluence in "Sultry Day", inviting the viewer to place themselves in this peaceful space.
