Andrew Bird  Anne Davies new paintings

Saturday 4 March to Monday 17 April 2017


We are pleased to introduce two artists both of whom have strong track records for painting and showing their distinctive and appealing paintings.

Anne Davies and Andrew Bird both grew up in the Peak District and draw their inspiration from the landscapes of the Industrial Revolution which they find in the north and the west of England. They are fascinated by old mills and warehouses, ships and rows of worker’s cottages decaying now and embedded into dramatic rugged landscapes and harbours. In different ways, both love to paint the combination of architecture and coast or countryside, focusing on texture, pattern, space and light, the compound impressions of place.  Petter Southall’s furniture also has a mind for ship shapes, streamlines and boatbuilding techniques creating a design language all his own.
