Tom Hughes

 

Tom's latest series of small scale oil paintings marks a turning point in his practice, as after painting exclusively from life for five years he was keen to experiment with some new ideas.

These fictional landscapes have allowed Tom to focus on creating the colour palettes and textures that excite him the most.

Elaine Jones

Elaine's recent paintings reflect a continuing fascination with the beautiful scenery of the South Devon coastline.

 

There is a luminosity in these new oil paintings that captures the play of light on the water, and Elaine’s energetic handling of the paint gives a sense of the rhythm of the changing tides.

Anna Boss

Anna's latest collection of atmospheric mixed media paintings depict idyllic landscapes shrouded in fog. 

By gradually building up layers of acrylic paint and resin Anna creates subtle textures and a sense of depth in the paintings.

Catherine Monmarson 

Catherine’s mixed media works have been created using a combination of pigment, wax, ink, acrylic and oil on a variety of surfaces including paper, pages of books, cardboard and canvas.

 

The works bring together spontaneous and gestural marks with slower and more controlled elements, providing both texture and a real sense of movement.
