Jenny Blyth Fine Art has a new home at CAREY BLYTH a contemporary gallery located in the heart of Oxford at 8 Woodstock Road OX2 6HT (wed-sun 11-5 pm). The gallery shows contemporary art for sale - paintings, sculpture, printmaking and photography. Note: gallery talks Saturdays at 3 pm.
'I find that I am chasing beauty and trust that you will find something beautiful in the gallery to savour for years to come. I have a profound love of the natural world and much of the art that I exhibit is grounded in the tradition of landscape and still life whether abstracted or figurative.
Music and performance are also muse to artists inspiring and informing their practice. In an age where we are overloaded with images it is rewarding to find art that is playful and challenging in equal measure, provoking contemplation and bringing joy. The artists on display are both local and national, each committed to exploring and creating fine art.'
Current exhibition BACK TO THE WILD includes paintings by : NETTA CAREY who captures the quiet strength of the Scottish Highlands and the autumn colours of the rewilding project at Alladale; MARIE BOYLE balances space, colour and form in her still life and figure work; PAUL AMEY brings notes of Bonnard and Matisse to still life and explores the magic of night time swimming; FLORENCE AMEY - abstract expressionist painting that celebrates the rigour and culture of Andalucia; CHLOE FREMANTLE creates a fusion of seeds and pods, cells and structure with contour and topography; MARTIN SMITH sculpts 'fruits of the earth' in marble and alabaster.
