Michael Strang

Autumn Collection 2016

Just over twelve months ago here at the Summerhouse Gallery we were honoured to hold 'Spotlight on Strang'. To celebrate we have just taken delivery of a new body of work from the mighty Michael Strang entitled 'Autumn Collection 2016'.

Michael captures the beautiful effect that this season has on Cornwall. For example, in 'Gulval Windfalls', he depicts bountiful hauls of ripe fruit, and transforming Summer meadows into vibrant fields of jewel like hues in 'Towards St Michaels Mount' and 'Poppies and Other Wild Flowers'.

Dramatic late Summer sunsets show the earth clinging to that final burst of warmth, which is balanced by the calm moonlight scenes of the stunning 'Moonlight Symphony'.

Indeed, this warmth and brightness run through the heart of this stunning body of work, as Strang celebrates this last crescendo of colour before Winter descends.

If you are unable to come and experience this special collection in person, a full range of the work is available to view on our Michael Strang artist section.

New artwork in The Summerhouse

A Little Bit of Kit this Christmas

"I like paintings where the viewer can gaze out to the horizon and get lost in the canvas, my new work almost feels like you're out at sea, amongst the waves."

Kit Johns captures the beautiful, and often indomitable power of our coastline, depicting the briefest of moments; the crash of a wave during a winter storm or the mist of sea spray in the sunshine.

The Cornish coastline serves as his canvas as well as his inspiration; painting onto antique maps of the area which break through layers of accomplished texture and brush strokes, ultimately creating a unique, powerful piece, a perfect celebration of our stunning home.

Kit has recently brought his work off the canvas, collaborating with Cornish Folk Rock Band Ennor to create a cover for the bands most recent EP 'Polaroids' which has created waves of it's own since it's release in October.

After an exciting 2016, including a feature in this months Coast Magazine, we couldn't be more delighted to showcase a new selection of paintings from Kit, a wonderful body of work which pulls the viewer in amongst the waves rather than observing from the shoreline.
