May 4 - June 6We are broadening our horizons with work from two artists new to our galleries. French abstract artist Alain du Pontavice brings us beautiful contemplative paintings in subtle colours and textures. His work reflects his multifaceted and very interesting career. Alain graduated in Paris then lived and worked throughout China and South America for many years. He now divides his time between the rural south of France and his small studio in London. Carina Prigmore grew up in Sweden and her paintings are strongly influenced by her Scandinavian roots. Now residing in The Cairngorms National Park, the dramatic Scottish landscapes inspire her beautiful, atmospheric, and often moody landscapes. A different kind of horizon has inspired West Cork based Ian Humphreys for much of his career. The dramatic coast and islands of his locale form the background to his increasingly abstract work. Sea, sky, tide, vibrant weather, space, and light form the essence of his paintings. Helen Sinclair explores the beaches of South Wales looking for debris, driftwood, and other objects to turn into her beautiful and moving works of art. As befits someone so rooted in the natural world, Helen’s primary subject is the human figure. It’s a testament to her skill and control that her sculptures can conjure such profound emotion from just a few elegant lines.
