2016 Exhibitions

Autumn/Winter 2016 Exhibition

From September the gallery will be displaying new works by Nikki Taylor, Faye Nasser-Joley, Will Rochfort and Michael Turner.

Will Rochfort continues his interest in imagery depicting the atmosphere of the casino and the individuals who try their luck at the tables. The painting is closely cropped to give a sense of heightened tension, each person observing the other with chips held tightly and focus maintained.

Nikki Taylor will be showing a pair of complimentary torso reliefs depicting the front and back of a female nude. The delicate curves and lines of the female form contrast beautifully with strong graphic shadows.


Michael Turner's newest creation is a perfectly poised but typically languid iguana. The long tail is mirrored by the upward sweeping base allowing the creature to occupy almost the entire length.

Faye Nasser-Joley continues her study of big cats with 'Noora', a highly detailed depiction with an intense, almost mesmerising, focus on the animal's gaze.


Summer 2016 Exhibition

For June the gallery will be displaying new works by Nikki Taylor, Faye Nasser-Joley and Andy Baerselman.

The gallery is also pleased to be representing established sculptor Richard Thornton.

Two organic works in stainless steel from Richard's 'Elemental' series will be on display along with 'Sunflower Two'.

Richard's work spans subjects relating to the human body, abstraction and organic forms. The work strikes a balance between technique, visual impact and concept.

Richard has also completed a number of high profile public and private commissions including: the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham; ASDA; University of Bradford; Morrison's and Bio City, Nottingham.



Spring 2016 Exhibition

From March the gallery will be displaying new works by Will Rochfort, Michael Turner, Michael Speller, Paul Vanstone and Nikki Taylor.



New Year Exhibition 2016

From December the gallery will be displaying new works by Zil Hoque, Michael Turner and Will Rochfort.


Below Zil Hoque talks about about ‘Light Chargers’ and ‘Nightmares’.


“The two complimentary paintings are composed diametrically oppositely but dealing with the different qualities of light as an expressive means. The horse is depicted in two different contrasting environments and luminescence.

Light Chargers is a group of Arab mares with foals running in a passive abstracted exterior. The light is heightened to a point where it dissolves the mares leaving only the essence of their form.”


“Nightmares is a group of Arab stallions rearing in an abstracted interior. The light is artificial/nocturnal and directional contrasting geometrically with muscular curvatures of the horses.

Although not a direct reference, both paintings describe extreme points of ideals. Heaven/hell, male/female, exterior/interior, passive/excited and night/day.”

– Zil Hoque.
