CLIFTON CONTEMPORARY ART AXLE ARTS Leighton Road, Weston, Bath Open: Monday – Saturday, 10am–5pm by appointment Tel: 01225 461230, web: axlearts.com RACHEL JEFFERY 13 May – 1 June Cornish-based, abstract artist Rachel Jeffery takes her inspiration from landscape and geological formations. She has a special interest in natural forces, in particular light, and the stimulation of our senses. A graduate from Falmouth College of Art, Jeffery uses resin coloured with raw pigment. The technique gives a very short window with which to manipulate the flow and movement of the resin and so her canvases require careful foreplanning. She experiments continuously to create the exuberant celebrations of vivid colour, pattern and rhythm in her canvases. Yellow Flow by Rachel Jeffery

Embracing the restless play of elements and unyielding terrain across his West Penwith home, Neil’s latest paintings also feature some very different landmarks, the elegant terraces and crescents of Clifton in Bristol. From ancient outcrops to refined architecture, Neil’s use of deeply textured, layered oils expresses the sheer physicality and presence of these diverse subjects. And the delicate play of light that glows from sky water and stone. Right, Evening Waves by Neil Pinkett

Her utensils are made from a combination of semi-precious metals, and found objects recovered from places that have a particular significance for her. Gary’s ceramics include painted stoneware platters, interventions, platforms on which a spoon can rest, stages elevating food at the table. Carole’s work on painted and printed cloth explores the idea of place, placement and displacement. She is interested in Bath’s multiple layers of archeology and human habitation.
