An exhibition of our new- and highly anticipated – collection of paintings by Benjamin Warner opens this week in our Cornwall gallery, with all of the works available to view now in our catalogue.

In this collection, Warner has returned to the Falmouth Docks, which have long been a source of inspiration. The interrelationships between the brightly lit ships and the reflections created in the half-light of dawn, are rendered with delicacy and courage. Warner is a masterful colourist and the balance he creates between representation and abstraction is finely judged. The exhibition also includes some of Cornwall’s much loved areas- from Falmouth’s beaches and the Carrick Roads, to the Camel Estuary: these are captivating atmospheric landscapes. This is truly one of the ‘must see’ collections of the summer.
The collection is on display in our gallery in Falmouth from 9.30am, Friday 18th August. All of the work within the show can also be arranged to be viewed in our gallery in Primrose Hill, London, by request or as part of our complimentary home visits throughout London and Cornwall.

Bright Morning, Helford Passage | acrylic on board | 46 x 61 cms | £1,525

In this stunning collection of paintings, Andrew has been inspired by the breath-taking Cornish light of summer. No one day is the same, and capturing these specific fleeting moments has been a joy for him. Soft Cornish light and beautiful imagery conjure scenes that we can relate to and escape into. Many of these scenes are captured ‘plein air’, and in the words of the artist, ‘so as to seize a part of the day’.

This latest collection expresses immediacy, be it capturing still moments on Penryn River or busy days on the Helford, the colour palette becomes alive and joyous moments are seen within these paintings. Figures emerge and are more prominent than before, existing and occurring as the landscape unfolds.

Colour is energized and a vibrancy is depicted in ‘Spring Day and Washing’, it feels so alive you can almost feel the wind picking up and blowing around you.
A muted colour palette in ‘Port Navas Light’, to an ethereal scene, such as ‘Evening Colours off the Quay, Flushing’ which captures and perfectly expresses peace and tranquility.

All paintings featured in this collection can be seen on our website here:
