All this by way of introduction to Alice Mumford's first show at D avid Simon Contemporary in Bath, a solo exhibition of some 20 paintings and the outcome of the gallery's Contemporary Award at last year's Royal West of England Academy Open. Singled out from over 600 exhibitors, you can see why; Mumford has an acute, very well educated eye, as you would expect from somebody trained at Camberwell in the 1980s and, allied to a practice embedded in Cornwall and Cornish light for over 30 years, Mumford brings her own intensely personal style to these shimmering visions.
