Andrew Tozer: A Beautiful Life

3rd - 22nd April 2020

Andrew Tozer: A Beautiful Life

Born and bred in Cornwall, Andrew Tozer's relationship to the land he inhabits not only runs deep but is constantly evolving and growing through his painting practice. As a leading force in contemporary impressionism, Andrew exhibits across the country and his animated and dynamic paintings are highly collected. Plein-air painting has become a rarefied practice in contemporary British painting, however, Andrew's work is only enhanced and mobilised by this technique, Painting outdoors, allows Andrew to capture the fleeting and ever changing nature of the weather, the landscape, the light, the entire scene he is depicting. The transient qualities tat exist in our natural world are heralded as the subject matter of these expressive paintings, through fast and accurate observations Andrew manages to capture the real sense of a place as well as it's recognisable visual identities. This collection of paintings once again shows Andrew's unyielding passion for his craft and the astounding way he can create a body of work which fills in the gaps within the places which we as the viewer can feel, see and imagine through the mark making and colours of his work.

With a sympathetic and diverse range of painterly skills, Richard's work is an escape for the viewer-transporting you seamlessly to the place that lies within the painterly plane. This collection of work from Richard allows us to see his passion for place through vivid colour work, expressive mark making and considered compositions.

Alan Stratford

25th June - 9th July 2020

Alan Stratford

Alan Stratford is a contemporary British artist based in Cornwall who responds to the landscape surrounding him through atmospheric and emotionally charged oil paintings. Alan's work carries a semi-abstracted force which allows the paintings to become autonomous as well as recalling familiar scenes and observations. With a degree in Commercial Graphics from Bristol, Alan has a strong background within the creative industry but it is through his paintings that he has found his way forward, now being represented by numerous galleries across Cornwall. With an unrelenting passion for new discoveries, Alan gathers not only a rich collection of resource material through walking the Cornish landscape but, he is also consistently trying new techniques within painting and allowing play and experimentation to navigate his handling of his material. This collection of paintings shows Alan's balance between figurative and abstract feeling and how this harmony can create evocative and dramatic paintings filled with big skies, crashing waves and the effervescence of changing light.
