Jonathan Michael Ray: Long Way Home
Much of Jonathan Michael Ray’s art practice, primarily sculptural, utilizing a diverse and ever growing skillset of medium and mode, has become deeply connected to his surroundings. Routine exploration of the landscape, both rural and urban, often leads to a gathering of artefacts that may then become the basis of new works. Find out more here

Bruce Timson: New Paintings
A selection of semi-abstract landscape and still paintings produced since 2019. “I initially record the environment through observational drawing and watercoour studies,” says Bruce. “Elements of this source material are then artificially collapsed onto board and then abstracted to a lesser or greater degree through the process of paiting.” He is influenced by modernist painters such as Peter Lanyon, Richard Diebenkorn, Ben Nicholson, and Matisse.
