NEVILLE COX & DAVID HUNT
20TH MARCH – 16TH APRIL
Our spring exhibition brings together work by two artists, Neville Cox and David Hunt. Both enjoy working ‘en plein air’, outside in the landscape, and offer their own unique interpretations of the views of Somerset, Devon and Cornwall.
Join us from 2pm on Sunday 20th March to be the first to see an exciting collection of new original paintings, pastels, mixed media work and original prints.
A self taught Artist, Neville captures the colours and light of the landscapes of Somerset, Devon and Cornwall by working outisde, immersing himself in his subject matter to make work that truly reflects the atmosphere and beauty of the landscape. The Somerset countryside, in particular coastal and harbour areas are often the stimulus for his paintings, but he has noticed that suitable subjects can be found in less obvious places such as factories or the mud in Watchet harbour.
Neville’s mastery of different techniques is constantly developing, and this exhibition will feature original linocut prints as well as original paintings in oil and acrylic.
David Hunt draws his inspiration from the scenery and beaches of Exmoor and north Devon. His works expresses in visual form his reactions to the light, the mood and its relationship to the landscape. He works primarily in Oils and Pastels, although recently has introduced a combination of pastel and Gouache, which gives an extraordinary texture and dimension to his work.
David has exhibited widely, including exhibitions at the Blackheath Gallery in London and the Pastel Society in the Mall Gallery. The style and quality of his work has been recognised both nationally and internationally, and he has won several prestigious awards, including the Pastel Society’s Tom Rice Award, the gift of the society’s president.
