Kim Dewsbury: New Works / Gwaith Newydd

28 April - 22 May 2019

For her new show with us here at Ffin y Parc, Kim has once again combined elements of still-life and landscape.   

 

The work is meditative, meticulous  and precise. She assembles the objects in each painting, each bringing its own particular set of ideas and connections, and the resulting work is full of allusions and clues - paths of ideas, chains of meaning.  Here in particular, twigs and flowers become tributes or distillations of important places and memories. Collected pots and jugs echo and forge relationships with familiar, beloved views.

 

Her clarity is forensic and fascinating. Her skies are cool and bracing!  Her intelligence and singlemindedness is always apparent , and the finished work, while self-possessed, calm and quiet, nevertheless seems to quiver with passion and conviction. Nothing here is random or unnecessary.

 

Kim was born in Cornwall and studied at the Falmouth School of Art. She has been living and working in Wales for over 30 years.
