About the exhibition
This autumn's exhibition includes work by newcomers including Mark Johnston and Debbie Jackson. Mark is a well established landscape painter whose work I have wanted to show for some time and Debbie is an artist whose stunningly bold and energetic drawings of bulls and horses I chanced upon when visiting her artist husband David Ralph Simpson. Other newcomers are Jeremy Le Grice, Bindy Crossland, Fiona Mc Alpine and Mathew Lyn from Australia.
Since 1998 Judy Buxton has been a part of every exhibition, her energetic raw landscapes of the rugged Cornish coastline, along with her roughly elegant still lifes are still a joy. A visit to her studio is always a real treat. The well known Scottish colourist, Alma Wolfson, has also established herself as a firm favourite, and I hope will continue to be a regular exhibitor with her vibrant and painterly landscapes.
Jonathan Pocock is a major contributor to this show, his work is increasingly sought after, and as you will see he continues to develop a very strong and original identity. When referring to Jonathan's still lives, the critic Evita Rugif wrote:
'It did not come to life until Jonathan painted it. The work lives as art, it goes beyond the technique used to create it and far beyond the objects represented, there is a sureness of touch in placing the paint. What his works have, is the difference between the worthy effort and the worth-having.'
The thought behind this exhibition was to gather together a body of work by artists I admire. It is a celebration of colour, draughtsmanship, ability, evident in work by both established and emerging talent that will continue to lift the spirits for the years to come.
Please do view the exhibition should you be looking for a present for someone-or for yourself for that matter!
