The Old Pier At Low Tide Canvas Art
St Ives is perhaps most well known for its beautiful harbour and iconic pier. 'Smeatons Pier', designed by John Smeaton and built between 1767 and 1770 has the curious appearance of apparently featuring two lighthouses (one is actually a lookout and marks the end of the original pier which was extended later when an actual lighthouse was added).
Behind the 'new' pier, at low water, can be seen the poignant remains of the original wooden pier, now reduced to no more than a series of decaying uprights, reminiscent of some prehistoric sea creature, the old pier bravely fights against the relentless power of the Atlantic.
An original artwork by Kim Potter in Acrylic on 100% pure cotton, stretched canvas board. Framed in a modern grey, 'wood grain' finish frame 75 x 65 cm (29.5 x 25.5 inches) approx framed.

Kim's art is inspired by the ethereal influences of the coastal landscape and the constant brooding presence of the Atlantic Ocean.
She worked as a professional ceramic artist but moved into watercolour painting and more recently into Oils and Acrylics.
Throughout Kim’s life she has been drawn to nature, to the sea and more specifically to the beautiful coastline of Cornwall, where she now lives and works.
