Leading British landscape artist Oliver Akers Douglas is delighted to announce an exhibition of new work depicting the Swiss Alps. Several years in the making, this show comprises over 30 new works, painted in both summer and winter, around the area of Klosters in the Graubünden region. These mountains represent pure romance and escape to Oliver, and the prospect of actually exhibiting here is a long-held dream.

Having shown his work in famous London galleries, Oliver is best known for his dramatic evocations of British landscape – distinctive paintings of English skies and Scottish coastlines particularly. His work is remarkable for the fact that he chooses to undertake most of his work outside en plein air, often in remote and inhospitable locations. As a keen explorer of Swiss mountains, Oliver is often to be found carrying his heavy equipment to great altitude to capture his subject. Many of the works for this exhibition were committed directly from life, even in winter. As a result there is a captivating sense of energy and urgency that can only be achieved through direct observation.

His work is highly collectable and found in collections around the world, both public and private – most notably in the collection of HM King Charles III who he has accompanied on a number of trips as an artist.
