Summer Exhibition: Three Painters
5 August - 9 September 2006
Artonomy Fine Art's summer exhibition brings together three established
Exhibiting together in room one are two dynamic landscape painters -
Robert Newton and the New English Art Club artist, Michael Fairclough.
Viewing their work together provides a unique opportunity to see both
the contrasts in their individual responses to the landscape and the
qualities that they share.
The landscapes in Michael Fairclough's pictures often lie beneath
spectacular and epic skies that reach forward and beyond. The
of nature is expressed even when working on a small scale, and is
given added emphasis by the rich impasto surfaces of his canvases.
Fairclough was recently commissioned to produce six large works for the
Met Office's new headquarters in Exeter.
Robert Newton is renowned for his highly expressionistic works. His
free and rapid brushstrokes are created within a measured approach that
can capture the most blustery of days and bring to life the experience
of being within the landscape. The artist explains "I describe my work
as 'Painting Nature', as a direct response to my immediate
exploring colour, composition and expression yet maintaining the very
traditions of British painting."
In room two Artonomy is pleased to be staging the first solo exhibition
in Cornwall of another New English Art Club artist Jacqueline L Rizvi.
The artist is exhibiting a series of new works featuring still lifes.
Rizvi's evocative and carefully composed still life arrangements
are also a testament to her skill as a master watercolourist
She has exhibited extensively and has works in major collections
including the British Museum and the Dulwich Picture Gallery in
Accompanying the two shows (in Artonomy's works on paper room) is a
show of mixed artists' prints including the dazzling work of Chuck
