Exhibitions at The Hoyle Gallery

An exhibition of works by Newlyn and Lamorna Artists of the early 1900’s

AN EXHIBITION OF WORKS BY ARTISTS OF NEWLYN AND LAMORNA, TO COINCIDE WITH THE RELEASE ON JUNE 14TH OF THE FILM “SUMMER IN FEBRUARY”, DEPICTING THE TRAGIC EMOTIONAL ENTANGLEMENTS IN THE ARTISTS’ COLONY IN THE DAYS LEADING UP TO WW I

Although the major focus of The Hoyle Gallery is the work of the Bloomsbury, the Post-Bloomsbury, and the Staithes  groups, and although we have relatively few works emanating from the Cornish Peninsula, the artists of the South West coast were culturally and professionally linked both to the  rough-handed creative geniuses of the North East coast and to the smooth-handed, urbane francophiles of London’s “Fitzrovia”. The artists here represented were instrumental in the cementing of links between all three Schools, and then between their own classic tradition, and the newly-emerging Abstract Movement.

An exhibition of works by Newlyn and Lamorna artists at the turn of the century

These magnificent “Classic” Artists – the backbone of all British and European art movements from the 1890’s are rapidly re-gaining their former prestige, particularly at a time when vaccuous “contemporary” art is showing cataclysmic falls in world auctions, and the unfortunate buyers, who helped to inflate the bubble with new riches prior to the great financial debacle, are left contemplating awesomely depleted bank accounts.

Now is the time to pay a visit to our Local and National Galleries, and request that they bring up from the vaults the works removed to make space for the monstrosities, which, at the time had the notoriety to attract the crowds, and at least avoid closure.

The ability of these artists to create depth without internal modelling, but with a single line, is astonishing, and makes the judgment, until recently, of our major Art Schools that drawing is an “obsolete skill, unnecessary in today’s world” all the more breathtaking in its politically correct arrogance.

Installation Art can move us in ways which paint applied to canvas can not, but  the value of rotting carcasses, soiled underwear , copulating excrement  and stretches of wall, consists in their propensity to shock, and not in their being a natural successor to our Great Masters.
