John Scurry has an exhibition of still life paintings on at the Nancy Sever Gallery. Still life still evokes in me fruit and wine bottles on tables. Scurry plays around with the discipline of still life by creating motionless domestic issues from a consumer residential contexts. The objects included are very much more masculine than the traditional objects. A humorous element of the set is the fact that he includes quinces in some of the pictures.
The pictures within the gallery sheet below give you the sense of the set along with Nancy’s great text on the exhibition

Suzanne Moss creates shimmering pastel geometric artworks. The variegated pale pastel works are intersected with varied geometric triangles, oblongs, squares and other geometric shapes The choice of pale pastels makes viewing an activity that requires concentration. The choice of hanging the works on white walls was interesting. I tried to imagine what impact it would make to put them on a strong coloured wall.
Below is the gallery sheet and some pics but there is special depth and excitement in viewing them in a gallery.

Michael Taylor created some spectacular grand scale and multi layered images of our natural world for the recent exhibition at the Nancy Sever Gallery. Taylor has some grand scale views combined with some fine detailed close ups. His output is gorgeous in his eighties.
