CAROL PEACE & ANDREW SQUIRE: 'LIFE ON EARTH'
2 September 2020 - 19 September 2020
This exhibition beings together the work of two of Thompson's Gallery's most distinctive and well-loved artists, sculptor and draughtsman Carol Peace and painter Andrew Squire, combining their different media to create a wholly unique exhibition.
Carol Peace works in clay, which is quick to work with and easy to mould, before casting her pieces in bronze. The finished sculptures retain their rough surfaces, proudly displaying the hand of the artist.
Andrew Squire's style is deceptively simplistic, but loaded with commentary on Earth's current environmental issues. Primarily depicting animals in pairs or isolation on a solid colour plane, Squire places emphasis on the figure and possible narrative developing around it- is it happy, sad, lost, hunting, meandering? The artist posits interesting scenarios with animals situated in modern cityscapes, as well; his most recent two-person exhibition at Thompson's explored partly humorous, partly ominous setups in which wild animals collided with or existed within brightly coloured manmade structures.

Thompson's Gallery, Aldeburgh are holding a small one woman show by the extremely talented and sought after Swedish painter, Brita Granström. Every summer Brita goes back to her native Sweden to paint images of life in the Scandinavian countryside but due to lockdown this year she has been unable to travel there for the first time since she moved over here in 1993. As a result she has painted a series of paintings from her everyday life at home during lockdown near Berwick upon Tweed, shying away from using her top floor sea view studio and instead adapting to a portable studio to begin making a series of paintings capturing her family's daily life around the kitchen, porch and garden.

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.
