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.
