  • Joan Miró rejected the constraints of traditional painting, creating works “conceived with fire in the soul but executed with clinical coolness,” as he once said. Widely considered one of the leading Surrealists, though never officially part of the group, Miró pioneered a wandering linear style of Automatism—a method of “random” drawing that attempted to express the inner workings of the human psyche. Miró used colour and form in a symbolic rather than literal manner, his intricate compositions combining abstract elements with recurring motifs like birds, eyes, and the moon. “I try to apply colours like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music,” he said.

  • For Ken, painting is about three things. It is about revelation, communication and celebration. By revelation, he means giving people a way of seeing, revealing the world around them in a way they have never seen before, opening their eyes. By communication, he means revealing the world with a personal language, speaking directly in an instantly recognisable style. He wants it to celebrate life whether it be human dignity expressed by Velasquez or Cezanne, or the wonders of nature expressed by Corot and Monet. For Ken his main inspiration is light and it is through light that he wants to celebrate his world.

  • The Doges Palace and Grand Canal Venice

    by Kyffin Williams

    £18,500
    Once determined on an artistic course, Williams’ passion for work was all-consuming and there was never any question as to his subject matter, with the landscape before him demanding to be drawn or painted. Venice, in particular, had always been an inspiration for Williams, first learning about Venetian painters like Canaletto and Guardi at Slade Art School, as well as those who visited including Monet, Turner and Sickert, to then being able to see the works he had admired for years in person, with his first visit to the city in 1950. As Williams states: I had always loved its exuberance and lack of inhibition and now I was able to see some of the greatest paintings in the world’. Thus, Venice went on to be a place that inspired the artist for more than half a century, producing many paintings in a variety of media: oil, watercolour, drawings and ink. He was fascinated by the way the light mirrored on the ever-present water and the elegance of the city, but also chose to depict the more unseen angles of Venice unlike his peers. As with this ink drawing, The Doges Palace and Grand Canal Venice, Williams depicts a view of the city at night time, still maintaining his distinctive style by painting the mirrored light of Venice in the colours of North Wales, using dark tones and loose brushstrokes, putting his own impression on Venice. Although, you can still see the effect of light as the dominant feature. DIMENSIONS: (unframed) 12.2 x 18.9 in./ 31.0 x 18.9 cm SIGNATURE: Monogrammed lower right MEDIUM: Ink on Paper

  • 5650-Houghton-Heavenly

    Heavenly

    by Jeremy Houghton

    £3,850
    Jeremy has a real passion for birds – specifically, for depicting them in flight. This interest was ignited when he began watching the local flamingo population in Cape Town, where he spent a number of years running an art school after finishing his degree in law (something he says he hated and did because art wasn’t seen to offer “proper” prospects). Houghton’s images of migrating flocks are unexpectedly quiet pieces, with an even more marked deployment of empty space than the sports paintings. Houghton says that in essence all his paintings are an attempt to depict movement, and that blank space is crucial to this, given that by nature movement sits right at the edge of what it is possible to represent.

    by Fred Hall

    Fred Hall interpreted his surroundings with a light touch and a realistic approach. He spent a considerable amount of time in Newlyn painting 'en plein air'. Newlyn had a number of things guaranteed to attract artists: fantastic light, cheap living, and the availability of inexpensive models. The artists were fascinated by the fishermen’s working life at sea and the everyday life in the harbour and nearby villages.
