Dan Llywelyn Hall’s paintings of place reach like memory for the heart of the moment of being somewhere. Llywelyn Hall’s work is figurative without being descriptive. His intense exploratory use of colour and the physical language of paint, is coupled with a deep knowledge of and affinity to the history of art. ‘The Neo-Romantics worked in a period which I think was honest. They were charged with a sense of place, and that great lineage through from Samuel Palmer to Sutherland.’
‘He is part of that visionary lineage of painters for whom the world was suffused by the mind of its seer, for whom landscape became an embodiment of human feeling and thought. It was this spirit of immanence which such British artists as Turner and Constable were aiming to capture; which their succession of followers from Samuel Palmer through John Piper and Graham Sutherland to Paul Nash all set out to evoke. ‘ Rachel Campbell Johnston, Art Critic, The Times

Reuniting the Dambusters for the 75TH Anniversary

The night of 16th/17th May 2018 marked the 75th anniversary of the famous 'Dambuster' raid over Germany by 617 Squadron of the RAF using the ‘bouncing bombs’ invented by Barnes Wallis. The raid was dramatised in the classic 1955 film, ‘The Dam Busters’.
