New Painting by Lucy Davies
This stunning new painting of the cliffs near Godrevy Lighthouse has just been unwrapped and will be adorning the walls of the gallery very shortly!
Lucy trained at St Martins and Brighton and has a BA (Hons) in graphic design, specialising in illustration. She paints full time, either at her studio in London or in North Cornwall where she spends her summers.
A keen walker, Lucy will always take her camera and sketchbook with her on trips to record new images so she has plenty of inspiration in the cold winter months when she’s tucked away in her studio.
New Paintings by Lucy Almey Bird
The first snow of the season arrived this morning and what better way to mark the occasion than with three incredible new winter themed paintings!
Lucy was always encouraged to draw and paint from an early age and was taken on regular trips to galleries and museums, which ignited her passion for art. She is completely self-taught, having not taken the conventional route through education.
She paints mostly in acrylics and takes inspiration from everyday life - especially her three daughters.
New Paintings by Sarah Eddy
We're thrilled to be exhibiting Sarah's beautiful paintings this winter.
Her experimental use of oils and colour uniquely captures both the look and feel of the Cornish land and seascapes that she so adores.
Continually honing her technical understanding of the movement of oil paint and how colour dries through a combination of formal study and free painting, Sarah has completely immersed herself in the process.
New Work by Christy Keeney
Born in Ireland, Christy moved to London in 1984 to study ceramics at the Royal College of Art. After spending 17 years there, he returned to his native Donegal where he now lives and works.
Of his inspiration, Christy says - "I visited a retrospective exhibition of Picasso in the early 80s when I was at college, and many of my influences came from seeing that work. Especially a collection of small cardboard cutout and folded, figurative sculptures. These simple two dimensional pieces opened a world of possibilities on how I would approach my own work."
New Paintings by Erica Ankers
It's been a while since we've had pastels so we're very excited to have these wonderful paintings by Erica Ankers here at the gallery this autumn.
Focusing on colour and texture, Erica is drawn to art that evokes emotion and atmosphere; equally inspired by a beautiful sunset as a moody storm. She creates land and seascapes that evoke the natural beauty, atmosphere and joy found in the everyday of her surroundings in Devon and Cornwall. Blurring the edges between abstract and reality, preferring rather to focus on the colours and emotions of a scene.
New Paintings by Ian Pethers
Ian has created a series of wonderful Moonlit Shore paintings using ink and watercolour.
Born in London in 1956, Ian grew up in the Thames Valley. He took to painting at an early age, studying at the local school in Slough and later at night school under artist Jenny Riley at Marlow Community College.
In 2001 he was elected an associate of the Royal Society of Miniature Painters, Sculptors and Engravers.
New Paintings by Zoe James
Zoe grew up on the south coast of Cornwall. Her grandmother was a painter and inspired her from a young age to take an interest in art.
Current work explores impermanence: the transient moments on our shores, temporary spaces and migrations, capturing the diversity of beach life. Each painting explores a unique view of crowds moving across the shorelines. Abstract patterns and textile qualities emerge from the beach paraphernalia creating a painterly impression of our busy beaches.
