GEOFF YEOMANS Until Sat 30 July, St Dogmaels Gallery, Cardigan Admission: free. Info: 01239 612677 / www.stdogmaelsgallery.com Now in the autumn of his life, Pembrokeshire-based painter Geoff Yeomans’ career has spanned over six decades; he has become a highly reputable artist whose skilful, “draughtsman-like” precision is able to make mundane objects into beautiful compositions. Yeomans became involved in an art movement which seceded from the emotional expressionism of the 50s and delved into more realistic expressions of the everyday. Now retired, he’s re- turned to Wales to be inspired by old zinc barns, rusting ships, painted wood and rustic seaside sunsets. He seeks beauty in unique and often difficult places, but certainly finds it and has no problem expounding it through his work. In his own words, “painting is a love affair with a surface.”
