" a three ring circus" - a whimsical zen communique!

Exhibiting at Jayes Gallery for the first time, two well known and recognised artists who have moved to the country from the city to gain the freedom and inspiration that the ‘bush’ provides.
 Davies’s mark making expands on the everyday objects found in country fields and down country lanes. There is a ‘zen’ like quality about these pastel and soft paintings that evoke the ethereal and remind one of dreams and fleeting impressions. Hoyle brings a range of metals, found objects and bright steel together in intriguing sculptures that range from large to small and have a whimsical quality to them. They remind one of Lewis Carroll’s “Looking through the Looking Glass” with their unique compositions.

This is an exhibition that will delight the viewer and collector alike.
