Cornwall has been 'great inspiration' for Al Cazu

AN EXHIBITION of paintings and drawings by Al Cazu is at the Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society in Falmouth until Monday.

Most of the work on show has been created during the past 10 years while Al has lived in Falmouth. The collection consists of more than 250 pieces. Three sections of the work relate directly to the Cornish landscape, coastline, and architecture. Others have come from Al's travels and reflections on his life. All sets of pictures will also be available as books during the exhibition.

"Cornwall has been of great inspiration to me throughout this past decade and many of my pictures have been directly taken from the surrounding landscapes, skies, and the wonderful seas that encompass this green and pleasant peninsula," said Al.

"I usually paint with watercolors or simply sketch with a pencil. I am pleased to exhibit this work where it was created before dividing it into smaller exhibitions to be shown elsewhere. It is my hope that other people will now get as much pleasure from these pictures as I have done myself while producing them."
