NICOLA BEALING MONOPRINTS 


Ahead of her 2024 public exhibition at Newlyn Art Gallery, which opens May 4th, we present an exclusive collection of five monoprints by artist Nicola Bealing. Her curious works are known for their dark humour and underlying sense of the absurd, where human figures, animals and flowers are brought together to express intriguing and sometimes unsettling psychological narratives. Nicola Bealing studied at Byam Shaw School of Art, London, and in 2013 she received The Threadneedle Prize First Impressions Award. Her work is held in the British Museum and Jerwood Contemporary Collections.

SOPHIE HARDING PAINTINGS 


Sophie Harding makes uplifting still-life works based on the creative principals of simplicity, harmony, balance and colour. Her images are inspired by everyday things and moments from her life: cups and plates on a table, a bowl of fruit, a vase of flowers, or time spent walking on a Cornish beach. By simplifying objects and scenes, her works create feelings of escapism and calm, with a focus on the simple joys in life. Sophie cites artists including Milton Avery, Mary Fedden, William Scott, Bonnard, Ken Done and Matisse as influences on her work. Sophie is also currently on show at Newlyn Art Gallery’s Picture Room, until 8th June.

JACK DOHERTY CERAMICS


Jack Doherty’s beautiful soda-fired tableware combines contemporary design with traditional processes and materials. His locally sourced stoneware is anchored in the tones and textures of the Cornish landscape, and is glazed in the blacks, browns and greys of granite and the titanium yellow of gorse. Jack’s work is held in public collections including the Irish Contemporary Ceramics Collection at the Hunt Museum Limerick, the National Museum of Ireland and the Ulster Museum. In 2016 he received the Janet Mansfield Memorial Award in recognition of his work with soda-fired porcelain.

ROB PITTAM PAINTINGS


Rob Pittam’s still life paintings are based on subjects that reference a life lived by the sea. Locally caught fish feature strongly in his work, not just for their exquisite colour and sculptural forms, but for the way their scales reflect the brilliance of Cornwall’s unique light. Crabs, fish, fruit, herbs, platters, sea glass and silver cutlery are all brought together in simple, elegantly arranged compositions reminiscent of 18th century still life. In their stillness, and in the perfect detailing of each subject, they are emphatic of a life lived simply, in a place where everything is linked to the sea.
