JAMES FULLARTON: SHELTER-IN-PAINT
24 November 2020 - 12 December 2020
Always finding inspiration from life this exhibition's title points to the most pivotal year history has seen in a generation, an oil painter's manifestation of the 'work from home' mandate. Fullarton brings his bountiful palette and expressive strokes to every surface, articulating a kaleidoscope of colours in leaves, branches, sheds.
Every composition seizes upon the opportunity to quite literally explore one's own backyard – a universe all its own, interactions legally enforced.
'Shelter-in-Paint' is a milestone moment, marking James Fullarton's 20th year in partnership with Thompson's Galleries since the painter's breakout debut in 2000 at the then Dover Street gallery.
5 December 2020 - 10 January 2021

ANGELA A'COURT PS
6 March 2021 - 22 March 2021
'I gather my visual language from the grace of everyday ordinariness, private worlds, unguarded moments, the unsaid - the trace of human presence. I paint what makes me curious and seek to render the truest emotional response that made me first stop and take note'
ANDREW TOZER 12 PAINTINGS
24 April 2021 - 9 May 2021
I am from a Cornish farming family and for as far back as I can remember, I have loved being in the open air being at one with nature. Roaming cliffs, beaches, woodlands and creeks was the backdrop to my childhood. As a young boy I felt drawn to painting and was inspired by my mother who was also an artist.
At the age of 19, I moved to London to study Art at the University of Westminster. From there I went on to Central St Martin’s School of art. After 5 years, I yearned to return to Cornwall to do what I loved most – paint. I learnt my craft of painting en-plein-air whilst in London. The Thames, Richmond and Kew Gardens were all favourite haunts. Moving back to Cornwall in 1998, I quickly established a good reputation with many sell-out shows to my name. In terms of painting, I am at my happiest when working outside en-plein-air.
JUDITH BRIDGLAND & JENNY MATTHEWS
