ROSS EMERSON New Work


From May 24th - June 18th


Simon Drew Gallery presents an exhibition by ROSS EMERSON who says that his ceramics provide an outlet for stories to be expressed in colourful creativity and fun. He’s come a long way from the small


boy who started pulling mud from his local stream and making sticky vessels. The fascination stayed with him. For 30 years Ross has been designing and hand-building clocks that he then fires in glorious colours often using gold lustre highlights. They were initially inspired by traditional mantle clocks but he gradually evolved them into something more elaborate and surreal, drawing on the influences of Chagall, Hieronymus Bosch, Escher, Dali and Edward Lear. They are witty in their use of unusual motifs, such as pierrot shapes, nude pianists, toucans and other exotic birds. As the work progresses, Ross allows it to take on its own life and dictate the process until it has metamorphosed into a piece with a tale to tell.

‘Smoke on the Water’ White Sails Gallery are proud to announce the first ever exhibition in Dartmouth by the highly acclaimed artist Paul Dolman. Paul has been passionate about painting since he was young, winning several Junior Artist awards in his teens. But it is only in the last 15 years or so that his sophisticated and individual style has gained international attention. Working in oils and pastels his wonderfully refined paintings, balancing strong detail with soft backgrounds, reveal atmospheric and vivid landscapes full of life and drama. Living on the South Coast his moody hamlets and harbours from Christchurch to Coverack are as beguiling as they are mystical, and these classical offerings have drawn the attention of several exclusive galleries as far afield as the United States. For this exhibition he has turned his attention back home. As he says himself “this is an opportunity for me to revisit an area that was a revelation to me as a young local boy when I lived just across the hill from the beautiful river Dart. The ever-changing tidal waters running though this town are an inspiration to me and will be the centrepiece of a series of local paintings which will add new mood and mystery to this wonderful corner of South Devon.”


creating an ornate candelabra and his clocks and candlesticks will provide a fabulous spectrum of colour and shapes – some clocks twisted and bent, others with parts modelled into a whole scene, such as a tea party or a garden. Ross is one of today’s most skilled and imaginative ceramicists and this exhibition will showcase his talent. His exhibition runs to 18th June.


'SMOKE ON THE WATER'
