Kirsty - detail

‘Conformation’ by Kirsty Mackay
Original Artwork : Industrial Paints on Canvas

Mackay uses the process of painting to build shape and form, but also allowing for the calculated element of chance spontaneity and flux. This results in a wealth of colour and pattern which although chaotic and consuming, offers a new quiet discourse.

 

 

still life jar boiled sweets

‘Still Life jar Boiled Sweets’ by Christopher Green
Original Artwork : Oil on Board
Price £2,650

Green paints ‘hyper’ realism. Although he often uses photography to capture transient lighting conditions, he has absolutely no desire to produce a faithful reproduction of the photographs themselves. Instead he uses the images as reference points for the creation of a heightened, idealised reality.

Anna E Davies – Shifting Perceptions

Sea

Welsh painter Davies takes inspiration from her day-to-day environment in Nottingham, revealing the underlying sentiments and sensations lurking in mundane, everyday experiences.

Her ruddy, fleshy figures recall the grubby worlds of Raymond Briggs and Quentin Blake as much as Francis Bacon’s contorted dreamscapes. Here the mind is making a break for it through the body and reality is worming its way out from under appearance.

Self portrait (full)

The shifting, fuzzy face of the grim figure in Reflection (below) stands in stark contrast to the defined shape of the teacher or perhaps self portrait seen in Sketch (above image)

Davies work here recalls the existentialist philosophy of Heidegger and Sartre with the subject of Sketch defined and submerged into the social identity of the teacher, while the figure in Reflection is confronted with the terrible freedom of authenticity and the clamouring, battling swirl of multiple identities.

Reflection

The Gallery welcomes this fine emerging artist to our books. Already a positive reaction we anticipate Davies to be an artist not to be overlooked. Click here to find out more

George Thornton Art : 12A Flying Horse Walk, Nottingham, NG1 2HN

Antony Gormley’s “Standing Matter” (2010)

Standing Matter 2010

Antony Gormley’s ‘Standing Matter’ (2010) is a piece of human appreciation of the weight of mans’ imperfection faced with those perfect symmetrical blocks of his own creation. A human without angles and anonymous against colourless outlines speaks to the hopelessness of the human condition – relentless progress of the Lego block constructions of our weak and featureless imaginations against the molecular structure less shape of our existence. Exquisite.

‘Standing Matter’ is on display in the Gallery and available to purchase. Framed and certified with Gormley’s signature on the reverse.

Bring your home to life! The Art of Ruth Mulvie.

The way Ruth Mulvie demonstrates her love and understanding of paint is refreshing! Inspired by Pierre Bonnard and perhaps the more commonly known Peter Doig, she brings a lavish quality to the sunset villas, wildlife and stylized people that she depicts on canvas. Brush strokes are clean, each plant and building are structured in such a way that mimic that quality of art nouveau.

Surrounded by exciting new cultures, experiences and environments, Ruth Mulvie uses her own photography, or images from magazine and published editorial contents to make a collage. After much time adjusting compositions she will then use this collage as reference to paint her canvases. At first glance they remind me of the work of David Hockney, however if you look closely there is more of an agenda to each painting. Filled with surreal connotations (wildlife wandering aimlessly by the poolside) Ruth adds inaccurate shadows and perspective to each painting giving the viewer a sense of dream like narrative with each painting.

Ruth now settled in Brighton is working with our gallery to showcase a range of limited editions and original work. Limited editions are modest in size and originals large and comforting of scale.  Real statement paintings to brighten up your home.

Below, please find the gallery preview to this collection. For further information contact us – george@georgethorntonart.com

Nottingham : The taking of the Council House

Council House

  • Depictions of cities have been popular with both artist and audience for centuries. Virtually every movement in art has contained within it works that represent cities and arguably the iconography of these metropolises has been in no small part generated and reinforced by these representations. George Thornton Art would like to celebrate the city of Nottingham. Home to our gallery and in particular a very distinct building; The Council House. This beautiful high domed building stretches 200ft tall and is quintessentially a Nottingham landmark of the utmost distinction and can be seen from miles around. As infrastructure and modernization develops this building hasn’t changed and still is the focal point for the City Centre. The gallery is proud to represent artists that have taken time to pay homage to this building. Let me introduce the work of Alicia Dubnyckyj, Rachel Tighe and Donna Rumble – Smith.

 

Town Hall Nottingham 122x 100cm

  • Alicia Dubnycykj is an exciting almost abstract artist who brings a sense of speed and vibrancy to the Nottingham City Centre giving great credence and space to the building itself.

 

Nottingham Trams (low)

  • Rachel Tighe seemingly naïve representations at first glance look erratic but if you take time to study the detail you will soon find her structure  of the Council House is much guided and with the courage to offer the sky above a light sea blue, it really makes this building and the surrounding offices stand out.

 

DRS Old Market Square 84x58cms

 

Donna Rumbe – Smith in order to create her works, stitched threads are intricately and meticulously woven into paper. Hours spent overlapping threads, folding paper to achieve the architectural form of the dome.

All three pieces are on display, available to view and purchase within our Nottingham space. Also, they are represented online.
