Neil Davies | Time and Tide
with ceramics by Jin Eui Kim and jewellery by Guy Royle
6 July to 27 July
Neil Davies’ new collection considers the resilience and constancy of nature: time and again, man makes his mark upon the land, but given time, nature always reasserts itself, quietly healing scars and reclaiming the landscape. Davies explores the beauty and meaning of this process, painting farm buildings and disused engine houses that are crumbling away as wild vegetation returns.
Accompanying these paintings are new works by ceramicist Jin Eui Kim, which continue his study into the illusory effects of tonal bands, alongside jewellery by artist Guy Royle.

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.
