With the fresh New Year now upon us, we wanted to kickstart our blog again and what better way to start than a look back at all of our most liked Instagram posts from both Beside the Wave Cornwall and Beside The Wave London from 2016 – catching us up to today and celebrating some of our favourite work from the year.
We love being immersed in this atmospheric corner with the poetic, semi-abstract paintings of Elisa McLeod and the striking stoneware pots of Norman Yap.
Detail of ‘Early Evening, Primrose Hill’, oil on canvas, 90 x 103 cm, by Benjamin Warner. A view we are especially fond of, masterfully captured at that time of day that the park’s lights are just starting to glow.
‘Storm,Trethias Island’ by Nigel Chamberlain is featured in our new show ‘Start a Collection’ where we are offering lower gallery prices on selected artworks and the chance for you to build your own art collection at a more affordable price. See more works in the gallery now!
It’s the final week of our current show ‘The Art School’ and we have been so pleased by the response to this impressive mix of talent from past students of the Falmouth School of Art/Falmouth University. In our window for the final week are the paintings of Jon Doran, one of our most recent graduates from the University but fast becoming one of our most sought after artists.
‘I love to paint, to push the pigments around the canvas, to smudge them together or to lay clean blocks of colour on top of each other until my impression of land, sea and sky looks and feels how I know it to be’ Imogen Bone Such an exquisite new collection of paintings by Imogen Bone, inspired by recent travels to Iceland.
