Moving to Kirkbymoorside, at the foot of the North York Moors, has led to a huge increase in paintings selling. It's definitely easier to see the works with the extra space and the amazingly light room. We have been reviewing all the artists and have a few new ones lined up plus a number of wonderful returners. Here are our tips for the year ahead.
Alex has an unusual technique, using ink and gesso to create her dramatic landscapes. Texture is added with careful scrapping of the surface. We have 5 new works in the gallery and more lined up for later in the year.
Robert J. Wyatt
We have long been fans of Robert's works, painted in his spare time. Self taught and using techniques similar to Caravagio, we love his compositions injected with his humour and take on the often mundane still-life. The works challenge the eye and brain in a positive way and keep giving.
Following an immensely successful career designing for the likes of Aspreys, Carne turned to his personal art several years ago. Much of his previous career is evident when you view his latest works, often featuring embroidery, splashes of tea or coffee and whisky or vodka! His work is truly original and gaining in value every year.
We are still in the process of building Emerson's new page on our website. This is one of the painting due into the gallery in April 2017. Can't wait to see the rest!
One of several new paintings due on the 28th March 2017. Delighted to welcome Lindsay into the new gallery for the first time. Her works have a lot of humour, a certain naivety and we love the quirk of the old rulers. Takes us back...
We found Harriet on Instagram, where she was charting the progress of her British coast studies. Using a variety of techniques including photography and over painting Harriet came up to Yorkshire and conducted a series of studies along the North York coastline. The first of these arrive the first week in April and they have sparked heavy interest already.
