Our Spring exhibition features the renowned artist, David Tress who is represented by Messums Gallery in Cork Street, London.
“Widely regarded as one of Britain’s most inventive
landscape painters, Tress moves beyond a landscape’s
immediate appearance and evokes a state of mind: a sense of self in relation to place, its primordial history, and the wild, cyclical rhythms of the seasons and elements.”
David Tress has lived in West Wales since 1976 and the landscape of this part of the world forms the subject of many of his paintings. His work is held in many
national public collections. In 2013 he received the Glyndwr award for an outstanding contribution to the arts in Wales.
David is well known in Shropshire where he has held inspirational workshops for many years.
Dennis Farrell has lectured at St Helens school of Art, Blackburn School of Art, Harrogate College of Arts and Technology, and the University of Wolverhampton. He has been a guest lecturer/demonstrator for colleges and ceramics groups across the UK and set up studios in Lancashire, West Yorkshire and Shropshire.
“My current work responds to light, line, colour and texture observed in rural and coastal landscapes. Weathered and eroded structures with their sea-washed and weather-worn surfaces are of particular interest. “
Dennis Farrell lives and works in Shropshire. He has exhibited nationally and internationally and has work in both private and public collections.
Dennis has been exhibiting with Twenty Twenty Gallery for over 15 years.
