Work by new gallery artist Martha Holmes can be seen in the gallery.

For this show we are welcoming a new female artist to the gallery. Martha Holmes is currently in the final year of her degree at Falmouth University and we just love her little studies, perfect for the start of spring.

“I am a painter based in Falmouth. My work takes inspiration from the rich colours and light found within the Cornish coast and landscape, working both en plein air as well as still life from my studio space.
The nature of my work allows me to explore and travel around the coast, seeking spots to paint and record the changing lanscape. The abstract and expressive nature of my landscape work has influenced my still life painting, using a similar method to document the structure of colour and light within the compositions. I always work from life, with foliage often picked from different places along the coast or close to where I paint in Falmouth. Process and the space I work in has always been important to me – working directly within the landscape or with the subject matter of a still life allows me to fully engage with my work.” – Martha Holmes February 2018
