Assembleº 20, curated by Brian and Judi Green, who have built a powerful bridge between Cornwall and London since running Tregony Gallery from 2015. They embraced the opportunity and started a major re-branding and repositioning of its identity and direction by building relationships with artists and collectors, culminating in an artist run gallery focusing on distinctive figurative painting.
After thirty five years working in the creative industries, Brian and Judi came with the ability to spot artists that have something different in the way they see and interpret the world.
Assembleº 20 brings together a group of artists for whom observation is the touchstone of their practice and is rendered through their diverse perspectives and modes of expression. Distinctive approaches, structural compositions and deeply layered planes of colour and a natural radiance drawn from a deeper well than simply the technical ability to reproduce an object, person or place.
The gallery’s artists are divergent but share a common sensibility to their work; a natural sensitivity that enables the viewer’s direct engagement with their subject and intangible influences that led to the creation of each work.
Exhibited international artists will include Jennifer Pochinski, Dean Fisher, Josephine Robinson and ceramicist Sara Ben Yosef. Newly represented painters June Collier, James Bland, Clare Haward and Henry Jabbour, members of the prestigious artist collective The London Group, faculty and alumni from the Slade School of Fine Art, Camberwell, Royal College of Art and the Royal Drawing School. Cornish artists Virginia Bounds, Mark Dunford, Dana Finch, Kay Vinson, John Brenton, Judi Green, Karen McEndoo, David Moore, Bridget Macklin and invited guests
