Lar Cann – Dyworth Pow Gwyrven
Lar Cann – Dyworth Pow Gwyrven 10th November – 10th December
Dyworth Pow Gwyrven translates from the Cornish language as From Elvan Country. Gwyrven literally means Greenstone, it is a very hard rock associated with granite. Elvan is the name used in Cornwall for the native varieties of quartz-porphyry. Lar has been engaged with the visual impact on the landscape brought about by the industrial extraction of granite, copper and tin. This intervention has revealed an otherwise hidden world of mineral wealth unrivalled in its beauty of colour, form and texture and has been a continuing source of investigation and motivation in his painting.
