Jules Cadie has collected together paintings, wooden structures, fleece, found elements and has brought these pieces together at Thorney How illustrating his fascination with the natural elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water. His imagery represents the relationships between these four elements and their impact on the natural world through growth, development, decay and regeneration.
Thorney How is surrounded by the huge landscape of the Lake District, but Jules draws the viewers eye into the detail of root and rock, twig and fungi. There is a sense of wonder, yet also a very elemental hands on touch to his objects and painting that is both very accessible and marvelous.

Cumbria Artists Open Studios 13-28th Sept 2014
We are thrilled to be hosting another C-Art Open Studios Exhibition again this year.
Cumbria Artist, Jules Cadie will be transforming our dining room and reception gallery spaces with his paintings and wooden constructions along with an installation on the aptly named Thorney How, this is the rocky mound in our grounds after which the property is named.
See the C-Art gallery page here.
Jules bases his work on direct observation of the natural environment, and for this occasion, from the strange and curious world of Thorney How, by fusing natural and synthetic pigments and materials.
The exhibition at Thorney How will feature paintings, handmade wooden artefacts and an ongoing installation with the grounds.
We will bring you updates as the work progresses and Jules will be blogging himself during the period of the exhibition.
You can visit his personal website here.
