A brand new collection by increasingly sought-after painter Myles Oxenford is now up in the gallery until the 28th June.
This new body of work, titled ‘Spring to Summer’, celebrates the fresh and joyful feeling of this particular change in season; whether in the bright pools of blue in a calm summer sea or the abundance of stems in his wife’s flower studio.
His recent move to mid Cornwall has continued to inspire him and fuel the recent development in his work to an extended stage of abstraction.
”In my latest work I have been painting spare stems from my wife’s flower studio and exploring the land and seascapes of the north coast of Cornwall. I have found myself playing in the space between abstraction and figuration.I enjoy minimising forms, harmonising colour and creating areas of space, while also attempting to reflect light and movement. Rather than being strictly topological, I have aimed to capture the essence of my subjects.” – Myles Oxenford 2017
Starting Friday 16th June, Myles Oxenford’s special collection ‘Spring to Summer’. We will also be hosting a Meet the Artist event on Saturday 17th June 3-5 pm, Pop along for a discussion and drinks with Myles.

Our gallery manager took a trip to the amazing Krowji open studios this week, catching up with some of our gallery artists such as Jon Doran, Amy Albright , Kerry Harding and Nicola Bottono. She got to see some amazing new works in progress showing the skill and detail involved in all three artists practices.
