Mats Rydstern Solo Exhibition: Oct 27 - Nov 13

October 27th sees the much anticipated return to Bristol of the talented Swedish painter, Mats Rydstern. Mats is featured in many important collections in his homeland, and has become very sought after in the UK, since Lime Tree Gallery first featured his work in 2007.

Lime Tree Gallery is Rydstern’s sole representation outside his native country and his very fine still-life and landscape work is deservedly popular and widely collected. His last UK show, in 2015 was hugely popular.

Born in in Stockholm in 1952, and educated at Valands School of Fine Art in Gothenburg University from 1973 -1979, Mats is a fine technician of considerable versatility and vision. Although a noted portrait painter, his exhibited work comprises mostly his landscapes and beautiful still life works.

His still life work has an identifiable Scandinavian sparseness, whilst his landscapes follow a broader European tradition. Both are distinguished by brilliant treatment of light and an unusual ability to capture stillness.

Mats Rydstern will be at the Lime Tree Gallery from 11.00-16.00 on Saturday 27th October.

View Exhibition
Mats Rydstern Solo Exhibition: Oct 27 - Nov 13

Texture: Sept 15 - Oct 12

Presenting three very exciting artists whose works are very much in contrast, yet often rely on texture, and reworking the surface as an important part of their creative process.

One of the leading Welsh contemporary artists, Vivienne Williams was elected RCA in 2017, a just reward for her beautiful contemplative paintings which involve layer upon layer of reworked colour and texture.

Henry Jabbour, originally from Lebanon, now resident in Cambridge, focuses on the human figure and on the emotive qualities of body gesture, colour and mark-making. His training at Leith School of Art in Edinburgh and a Masters from New York Academy of Art backs up his instinctive feel for the vulnerability and fragility of his subject matter.

Edinburgh artist Rose Strang is a fine talent. She refers mainly to the landscapes of her native land seeking to communicate her response to her beautiful, often bleak subject matter. Her Iona series, painted for this exhibition is fresh vigorous and outstanding work.

Texture: Sept 15 - Oct 12

David Smith RSW: Solo Exhibition, Long Melford

David Smith is one of Scotland’s leading contemporary painters. Widely collected and much respected by his peers, he was elected a member of the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour (RSW) in November 2011.

This will be David's eight solo exhibition with Lime Tree Gallery and it should cause a stir.

“My upcoming exhibition has been an exciting change of direction for me as I have expanded my subject matter beyond the Scottish borders. My new paintings draw on my love of travel and feature the seaboard of Scotland as well as Southern Europe and the Mediterranean.

Painting and sketching en plein air allows me to focus on the colour and harmony of the subject in front of me immediately. My new exhibition with Lime Tree Gallery captures the contrast between the quiet tonal blues and greys of the North West Scottish mists and the warm vibrant reds and ochres of the Southern Pyrenees.

David will be in the gallery to discuss his work on Saturday 13th October from 11 am to 3 pm.

Autumn Exhibition, Long Melford: Sept 8 - Oct 10

Earlier this year we enjoyed meeting Samantha McCubbin in Glasgow and now her painterly work is being shown in Suffolk for the first time.

We are also introducing an artist new to the gallery, Aldo Balding, born and raised in the United Kingdom but currently living in the South of France. He started his career as an illustrator before moving to France to become a full-time artist. His tonal work and subtle use of space distortion fits firmly into the Lime Tree Gallery category of ‘painterly’ painters.

At last! We are delighted to present our first solo exhibition by Ian Humphreys.

Ian Humphreys is where our journey into the art world really started. We bought several of his works as we started building our collection in the early 1990s. We still love his work, as it has evolved through many phases from the original, often humorous, figurative and still life work, to today’s haunting, almost abstract, seascapes and landscapes.

Ian will be present in the Bristol gallery at the Preview on the evening of Thursday May 3rd.

A Scottish Odyssey in Blue by David Smith RSW: Oct 28 - Nov 21

We are delighted to be exhibiting our 7th Solo show For David Smith RSW.

David understands the coast and islands of Scotland like few others. Many years of hill walking, mountaineering and rock climbing have instilled a clear sense of the terrain and skies, which is recreated in his paintings. His distinctive landscapes have become widely collected, and he was elected RSW in 2011.

‘Blue, Turquoise and Green are the primary colours that make up the palette for this exhibition of new Scottish paintings. They are the colours of the landscape which I tried to capture between plein air painting and working on my sketches.

The Sketchbooks for this exhibition are visual diaries of my travels and thoughts around the seaboard of Scotland, from the Firth of Clyde to Glen Elg in the West Highlands, the Hebrides to the Moray coast in the North East and down to the East Neuk of Fife.’

Come and meet the artist at Lime Tree Gallery on Saturday 28th October.

Light Trail by Peter Wileman, Long Melford: Oct 14 - Nov 7

Peter Wileman is one of the UK’s leading contemporary painters. He is a Past President and a Fellow of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, a Member of the Royal Society of Marine Artists and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

Peter’s style is bold and vigorous, both in the use of colour and handling of paint, as he explores the effect of light on his subject. Seeking atmosphere through light and colour, he works in varying degrees of abstraction.

In this exhibition, Peter has focussed much of his attention on our beautiful Suffolk coast, with his interpretations of many of our favourite places ranging from Pin Mill up to Walberswick, via Woodbridge and other points in between.

‘My work in the exhibition aspires to interpret the way I see my favourite views through extensive use of both light, colour and varying degrees of abstraction.
I paint what I feel and not just what I see, conveying a sense of power and emotion that goes beyond the mere recording of the scene before me.’

Peter will be present from 11.00-15.00 on Saturday 14th October. Please take the chance to meet one of our leading artists. All welcome.

Places I Know: 28 Jan 2017

Although landscape painters often seek new vistas, they usually have a special relationship with a particular place which has been an important part of their life as an artist. Be it an island, a town, a river or a coastline, something draws them back.

Maybe the same view in different light, maybe an element of realism within a largely abstract or semi-abstract space. Or perhaps experimenting with the colours and construction of a familiar view to give an unfamiliar composition to a well-known place.

New to the gallery is Suffolk- born, Swedish- based painter John Button. His evocative Suffolk coastal scenes are a distant reference to his childhood by the sea, north of Southwold.

Robert Newton - An Intimate Landscape - Solo Exhibition

'These paintings are of a working landscape and its surroundings, a landscape re-shaped to suit our own existence either for agriculture or mining or other development. Divided by narrow stretches of hedgerow, woodland and path, these tiny oases are a sanctuary for many insects, plants and animals. Here I highlight their habitat and its fragility; tomorrow it may be gone forever.'

This work is a journal of an immediate landscape, one that has become deeply rooted within my subconscious whilst walking my dog each day. A long-term project and one I began last year, it is a new direction and one, I hope, will add more emphasis to my painting.
