NEIL PINKETT Even the simplest object has a sincere beauty, when described in a way outside of its function. Neil Pinkett 2017

Artist Neil Pinkett is widely respected for his skill as a landscape painter, but takes a unique turn in this collection of works, towards the traditional genre of still life. Created especially for the 2017 September Festival exhibition, and reflecting the New Craftsman Gallery’s long-standing engagement with contemporary ceramics, these twenty new paintings are inspired by the artist’s own collection of ceramic bowls, bottles and vases, many of which are made by potters working or showing in St Ives. Demonstrating his unrivalled ability to describe form through a near perfect understanding of colour and tone, Neil’s still life paintings consider questions of function and beauty, exploring shape and texture, light and shadow, and the aesthetic effect of differing arrangements of ceramic vessels.
