Five Fine Art Favourites: June

Five Fine Art Favourites: June

/ Sunday 6th of June, 2021

Looking forward to a month of bustle and sunshine, we celebrate the arrival of June with an invigorating selection of fine art.


1. Monopoly of York by Colin Wilson. Acrylic on board. 6.5” x 6.5”. £1,450.

Chosen by: Philip Short, Director

"Painted with pristine attention to detail, Colin’s playful, imaginative still life is a unique piece. An artwork of subtly illusions, Monopoly of York will make for a very special acquisition, ideal for contemporary collectors seeking something just that bit different."


2. Roving Days Are Done by Edward Hersey. Oil on panel. 30” x 30”. £11,885.

Chosen by: Alan Short, Director

"One of Hersey’s absolute best, and as fans and collectors well know, that is saying a tremendous amount. The perfect farmyard scene, with chickens roaming, the red tracker tucked away in the outbuilding and of course, that fantastic blue Land Rover. A truly unforgettable painting."


3. Tremenna I by Philip Hearsey. Uniquely numbered studio edition bronze sculpture. 10” x 3” x 4”. £575.

Chosen by: Sarah Short, Gallery Assistant.

"Tremenna I is an exquisite object. The tones and textures Philip has been able to awaken in the bronze are thoroughly astonishing. Though deftly and decisively created, the sculpture seems organic in every sense, like excavated treasure."


4. New Beginnings by Stephen Hawkins. Oil on panel. 12” x 10”. £880.

Chosen by: Kirsty Maclennan, Gallery Assistant.

"Stephen’s pastoral scenes are among my favourite of this genre. New Beginnings is realised with such tenderness and free, painterly motion. With the warmth of the rising sun felt throughout, the sensitively rendered mare and foal, as well as the wild, windswept meadow are highlighted beautifully."  


5. Set Sail at Dawn by Alex Hill. Oil on canvas. 12” x 12”. £745.

Chosen by: All

"Awash with brooding, purple hues and perforated by the golden light of sunrise, we find ourselves mesmerised by Alex Hill’s latest painting. As one of Britain’s leading Marine artists, Alex continues to surprise and delight collectors with his seafaring narratives and richly detailed style."
