All my work is inspired by my local environment which surround my home/studio where I live and work. It is on the upper reaches of the Helford River in Cornwall, an ancient landscape, with tidal mud flats and twisted oak trees... This particular painting is about when the wind catches the water at the turn of the tide that moment the water can appear silver is an endlessly fascinating and inspiring thing for me and I spend hours watching or drawing it.

Contemporary art from Cornwall is going through a remarkable revival currently as a whole new generation of younger artists creates an incredibly vibrant and hugely varied body of work, far removed from the pale imitations of Ben Nicholson, Peter Lanyon and Patrick Heron that have characterised it for so long now. Penzance-born Louise McClary is very much at the forefront of this development, her intensely mysterious and richly coloured semi-abstract canvases filled with references to the paradisical and strange landscape of the Helford River on her studio doorstep. 'Luminous Wind' is a fine example, a visual poem in which elements of the landscape – reed and tree-forms and areas of gleaming water - are brought together in a resonant harmony of pinky-grey-greens, lemony yellows and rusty reds. A felt landscape as well as a closely observed one.
