Ric James

Ric James | 28th February – 24th March

Private View – Friday 2nd March, 6.30-8.00pm

Ric’s exhibition brings us both reality based and abstract subjects in a range of media.
He has a strong interest in subject matter relating to New York. There is a series of paintings titled ‘figures at an exhibition’, they depict both paintings and spectators from The Metropolitan, The Guggenheim and the Museum of Modern Art. The works focus specifically on three paintings by Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko and Roy Litchenstein. They make bold statements with vibrant use of colour, rhythm and texture. Whilst other works span out further across New York, to capture the parks, skyscrapers, streets and residents of this unmistakable city.
In addition we will be showing a selection of Ric’s sculptures, including limited edition bronzes, but also works in more diverse materials such as plastic, wood and stainless steel. From figurative through to abstract.

The Penwith Gallery is the home of the Penwith Society of Arts based in St Ives, Cornwall. The society was founded in 1949 by Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson, Peter Lanyon, Bernard Leach, Sven Berlin and Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, amongst other.

This association with so many progressive and influential artists has given the Penwith Society a unique place in Bristish Art history.

It now presents a full programme of exhibitions by members and associates of the society, together with featured exhibitions by artists from Cornwall and elsewhere.
