Michael Praed & John Piper
with ceramics by Adam Buick

27th April to 18th May 2019

Artists John Piper and Michael Praed have been friends for over 40 years, and in their different ways create works that define the unique beauty of the far west. Piper’s work centres on the carns, moors and farm buildings of West Penwith, and the ever-changing textures and colours of this wild landscape. Praed’s work focuses on the harbours and fishing ports of West Cornwall. His paintings are concerned with spacing and the positioning of abstract shapes, and his subtle use of colour and tone capture the luminosity of Cornwall’s ocean light.

John Miller

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.
