Standing High out of Shrunken Peat is a love letter to the Fens created by two local artists, painter Nick Tearle and poet, Becky Owen-Fisher. The result is a uniquely beautiful, coffee-table read, featuring ten original poems and a collection of twenty-three painting reproductions. Join Nick and Becky for an exclusive exhibition and poetry reading.
Nick Tearle is an award-winning oil painter, whose work focuses solely on the Fenland landscape. His work features in the regular exhibitions of the Lincolnshire Artists’ Society and the Welland Valley Art Society. Nick’s paintings catch the drama of the landscape caught in fleeting light beneath huge fenland skies rendered either en plein air or in his home studio in West Deeping.
