Current Exhibition: Tide Lines
30th April - 25th June
'Tide Lines' features stunning new collections of paintings and ceramics by six leading artists all inspired by Cornwall's spectacular and atmospheric coastlines:
Angela Charles presents a thrilling new series of gestural abstract paintings created in response to the elemental landscapes of Gwithian, Godrevy and St Ives Bay, all imbued with nervy, edgy drawing which electrifies the subdued colour palette.
A dramatic new collection of experimental mixed media paintings by Joanne Last, painted both en plein air and in the studio perfectly capture the essence of West Cornwall's coastal landscapes, from calm sandy shorelines to stormy rocky coastlines.
Kathy Ramsay Carr shows a painterly and evocative new body of work which animatedly invokes the call of the gulls, the salt spray from the waves, and the winding cliffside paths above the translucent, luminous bays of West Cornwall.
This new series of beautiful, ethereal paintings by Masako Tobita is produced in response to walking and exploring St Ives and the neighbouring coastline in January and March.
This new collection of slab built ceramic vessel forms from Craig Underhill shows the visceral rugged quality of the clay and the applied layers of slips, engobes and underglazes evokes a strong 'sense of place', enriched by colour and strong mark-making, without overt references to specific places.
Sasha Wardell presents a fresh spring collection of contemporary translucent bone china vessels inspired by the coast and the sea debuts the new 'Tide' vessels series. Collectable ceramics of the highest order.
