Breathe

Featuring the work of Malcolm Martin & Gaynor Dowling, James Hake, Kerry Harding and Jane Ansell.

This exhibition explores the relationship we have to our natural world and how, through nature’s part within the creative process, we can immortalise what it yields to us, be it wood, clay, ash or its very own scenic beauty. Debuting in this show is the sublime sculptural work of Malcom Martin and Gaynor Dowling who have elevated sculpture in wood to the highest level of artistic success. Their work is held in several museum collections worldwide including The Boston and Philadelphia Museums of Fine Art and the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, and has been exhibited internationally. Kerry Harding makes a return to the gallery for her first large collection of paintings after a successful debut in early summer. She will be providing a large collection of new works which seek to deconstruct and re-construe landscapes with arresting depth and subtlety. James Hake also returns to the gallery with a major collection of brand new work. James has been a gallery favourite with our clients since 2016 and we are delighted that “Breathe” sees a large scale return of his work here. James is a master in glaze formulation and manipulation, his vessels adorned with fluid fusions of ancient Chinese glaze types including Nuka ash glazes, iron rich Tenmoku and cloud like Chun. The exhibition is also joined by the return of Jane Ansell’s moving takes on British landscape and out relationship to it. Her paintings have always been fabulously received and for ‘Breathe’ she is providing us with new works that showcase her ability to make paintings that transport us to a twilight world and perception of natural beauty.
