GREAT
little pictures, pots and jewels by Artists of Renown and Promise

30th May to end of July 2009
Tuesday to Saturday
10.30am - 5.30pm


Works on paper by BREON O’CASEY, last exhibited in the USA in the early 1990s make a welcome return to Cornwall, together with one or two paintings from this decade.  His palette of greens and mauves and earthy browns links his Irish heritage with this Cornish landscape, abstracted into a pattern of colour shapes.

ROSE HILTON, enjoying her airy new studio, is working with renewed vigour since her exhibition at the Tate St Ives last year.  

Her inimitable use of colour brings zest to figure studies, abstracts and landscapes alike.  One is drawn right into Rose’s paintings - as though longing to join her there in the intensity of her absorption.

A young painter from Gloucestershire, PIPPA MILLS captures the flitting light on her subjects. The beauty of everyday things is brought into focus by her perception and deft brush strokes.

There is a luminosity in MICHAEL SHEPPARD’s oils which defies the actual viscosity of the paint! He works at the coastal edge of West Penwith where the ever-changing light visually dissolves solid forms by its intensity.  These are the fleeting moments that emerge from his canvases.

The local landscape of Penwith fires SUTTON TAYLOR’s imagination too.  He has always worked in a totally individual way, creating pots that in their form often defy the tolerance of the kiln. His colours appear to alter dramatically when viewed from different angles through the iridescence of his metallic glazes.

ELAINE PAMPHILON expresses her subjects sparingly in paintings which for this exhibition are translated into prints.  Her minimalist approach gives pleasing clarity and balance - and a touch of bold colour often sharpens the focus. Elaine Pamphilon - Mug and Spoon St Ives
