The Lie of the Land | Neil Davies
with ceramics by Chris Keenan and jewellery by Emily Nixon
7 July to 1 September
In this new collection, landscape painter Neil Davies explores the contrast between the underlying structure of the Cornish landscape, and the endless seasonal change that affects its surface. Combining a vibrant palette with swiftly applied brush stokes, poured paint, and shimmering detail, these paintings respond to changes in the light, the turning of the seasons, and the cycle of Atlantic weather systems on Cornwall’s beautiful far west landscape.
Accompanying this exhibition is new work by British potter Chris Keenan, and handcrafted jewellery by maker Emily Nixon.

Throughout his career John Miller was closely identified with the New Craftsman gallery. His lifetime partner Michael Truscott kindly allowed this association to continue following John's death in 2002, and we are therefore proud to exhibit remaining works from John’s Cornwall studio. Please see our John Miller page for further information.
