A central emphasis of this show is the result of a visit to Khajaraho in Central India at the end of 2002. The powerful erotic human forms of the temple carvings are the foundation of the work; and the strong, hot reds and oranges of the paintings reflect the vibrant life of India.
Other parts of the show are a continuation of the artist's life-long concern with structure in an organic sense, primarily with the landscape as it appears in its stronger, harsher forms in south west Ireland, Cornwall and Spain. The love of black and grey spiced with purples or reds together with areas of collage or rough texture adds depth to the analysis.
The sculpture is in a rather transitional phase, moving away from the iconic minimalist forms and low ground sculpture towards the more recent constructs in stone and ceramic involving reminiscences of old Spain and the south of France.
The larger figurative sculptures in wood again deviate from the pattern, being celebrations of long-standing cherished memories in appropriate style and material.
- Open on Saturdays, 10 am - 5 pm or by appointment.
