AboutThis lively and intriguing show features abstract, figurative and landscape paintings from three artists and can be seen at Open Space Galleries in Penryn.
Jamie Boyd is a dynamic and exciting young artist who graduated from University College Falmouth in 2003. He continues to live in Falmouth but travels extensively and draws inspiration from the places he visits and the people he meets. His work is mainly figurative and beautifully observed.
The imagery in Marion Taylor's work is based around her observations of Jubilee Pool in Penzance that celebrates its 75th anniversary this year. The pool was built on âBattery Rocks' near Penzance harbour, which takes its name from a gun battery that was situated there from 1739. The pool played its part in the country's coastal defences once again in 1940 when two naval guns were installed by the Royal Engineers.
Carol Hosking-Smith's paintings are pure abstract, improvisations of a lyrical nature. Each painting is a path of discovery from bold energetic movements to smaller rhythmic brushstrokes that are calmer and more contemplative.
As well as this new collection of paintings, a selection of earthenware ceramics by Hugh Perry and beautiful organic forms of plants and waves in marble and limestone by Renata Barcelos are all on display.
