Current Exhibition - Alastair Elkes-Jones Solo Show 2016

04/06/2016 to 25/06/2016

Alastair Elkes-Jones was born in Llangollen in 1942 and spent his childhood and formative years in the industrial and rural climate of North Wales. Since 1971 he has lived on the South Wales coast working at his studio in Mumbles. Painting has been a life long pursuit unencumbered by formal training. His inspiration is found in the imagery of rural and coastal South Wales, the mountainous landscapes of North Wales, and the people who live and work there.

He works primarily in oils, applying the medium with brush and palette knife, often onto a canvas divided into a triptych form, building up the surface of the canvas with successive layers of paint. Finally brushes are used to work both into wet paint and onto the drying layers of the under-painting to achieve a distinctive blend of texture and colour in the final work.

Current Exhibition - 'Curated' - Andrew Douglas-Fobes 2016

11/06/2016 to 02/07/2016

An exhibition of new paintings, including farms and cottages of the northern part of Carmarthenshire, still life from the meticulously observed to the expressive, and Andrew's figure studies, again of rural Carmarthenshire life. Andrew's mantra as a painter is always 'painterly-ness' which binds together the three principal subjects of this new work.

Although his paintings are quite quiet in nature, with subtle complex pared down colour, the paintings 'sing' with colour harmonies and hold great individual presence - a quality very few painters achieve.

Reproduction does not do full justice to the textures and depth of this accomplished work. Viewing at our Llandeilo gallery is highly recommended.

Also included in the show will be a fresh selection of rigorously sourced country Antiques, curated by Andrew himself, to compliment his painting.
