FLUX: By the Sea - new paintings by Niamh Collins inspired by St Ives

Fri, 20/03/2020 - Thu, 30/04/2020
Sarah McCallum, owner of Flux, is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by Niamh Collins.
 
Niamh is the first artist of 2020 to exhibit with Flux, as part of a series of exhibitions by renowned, established artists & makers from across the United Kingdom.
 
About the Artist: 
 
Niamh was offered the chance to work for three months at the historic Porthmeor Studios in St Ives. Feeling it was the ideal opportunity for her work to evolve, she embraced the opportunity with no expectations, allowing herself to be inspired by St Ives. 
 
All the paintings are full of the nature of Cornwall, the movement of water in all it’s forms, the mark it makes upon the Cornish landscape and inspiration from the human activity of St Ives from fishing to tourism.
 
Being away from her usual environment inspired her & she was able to experiment, her work becoming looser and allowing her to feel less constricted. 

Niamh trained at the Royal College of Art, & is based at Spike Island in Bristol. Her work is concerned with representing the experience of landscape through abstraction. From regularly visiting the West Indies, the Caribbean palette has infused her work. She has exhibited widely & won several awards and prizes. Her work is represented in private and public collections in the UK and abroad.

Monday to Saturday, 11am – 17.30pm.
 
 
Flux is a selling gallery whose philosophy is selecting work that is unexpected: Honesty & uniqueness are qualities that we value & want to share with others. We offer unique things for people who value the unexpected & appreciate the beauty of the handmade. Everything we sell is an example of the artist’s viewpoint combined with their skill. We are proud to support British craft which is enjoying a real renaissance, we are literally spoilt for choice & this is something that we want to pass on to our customers, to be excited to see & buy something unexpected & beautifully made.
