13th July to 7th September
NEIL DAVIES & TANYA GOMEZ
New Craftsman is proud to welcome back acclaimed landscape painter Neil Davies with an exhibition of dramatic new works for summer 2013.
Painting from his studio on the rural outskirts of St Ives, Davies' work is inspired by the starkly beautiful and ever changing landscape of the far west peninsula. Known for his dramatic oil paintings of Penwith's most spectacular views, Davies work plays witness to the seasonal changes, shifting light and elemental power of Atlantic weather systems over a coast eternally exposed to wind, storm and sea. Employing painting techniques reminiscent of the old masters, Davies' impasto oil works combine layer upon layer of paint, scraped back and offset with translucent glazes of bright paint and varnish.
Accompanying the exhibition will be a showcase of vivid, contemporary ceramics by Tanya Gomez and seascapes by fused glass artists Jane Reeves. The exhibition runs from 13th July to 7th September.
