MOMA in Machynlleth

I've just spent a wonderful weekend in Wales and whilst there I visited MOMA in Machynlleth.

This art gallery and arts centre is in the ancient town of Machynlleth, the seat of Owain Glyndŵr's Welsh Parliament in 1404.

It has a superb permanent collection of work by Welsh artists including Sir Kyffin Williams and a revolving programme of temporary exhibitions that offer an extraordinary variety of work by contemporary artists largely working in Wales.

How lucky I was that there was an exhibition of Kyffin Williams’ work to commemorate 100 years since his birth. He was passionate about art and art in Wales, making a significant contribution to bring Welsh art and artists to the attention of the world by campaigning for a national art gallery. His paintings, full of thick, bold slabs of paint capture perfectly the colours and feel of the slate areas in the north of Wales.

As I visit frequently, I can’t resist painting Wales from time to time and this painting depicts the summit of Cadair Idris as seen through the trees far away in the valley beneath.
