Jenny Blyth Fine Art has a new home at CAREY BLYTH Gallery located in the heart of Oxford at the north end of St. Giles's at 8 Woodstock Road OX2 6HT (wed-sun 11-5 pm) The gallery shows contemporary art for sale across all media - paintings, sculpture, printmaking and photography.
'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.'
The current show is SUMMER NIGHTS and captures that late summer night feeling of heat and colour.
SUMMER NIGHTS features paintings by PAUL AMEY - paintings of back lit bars and night time swimming pools, FLORENCE AMEY - abstract expressionist paintings that encapsulate the colour and rigour of Spanish culture, CHLOE FREMANTLE - abstracted visual haikus inspired by nature, CAROLYN HORTON - beautiful monotypes, hard and soft ground etchings collaged with chine colle onto paper wrapped canvas, MARTIN SMITH - sculpture 'fruits of the earth'.
