This will be Ffiona Lewis's third solo exhibition with the gallery and we are delighted to present a group of thirty new predominantly interior still life paintings and collages.
Now working between Aldeburgh and London, where she is represented by the Redfern Gallery, Lewis has long and strong links with St Ives, where she has shown since 1994, and the West Country, where she was born in 1964.
Following a period focusing on landscape-based paintings, this exhibition explores the influence of habitual, spontaneous collage making on a seemingly more abstract tendency in recent works, as well as presenting a number of the flower paintings that have been a constant element of the artist's output. The show also illustrates the overlap between these keys strands of interest.
A fully illustrated catalogue with essay is available on request.

ABOUT THE GALLERY
Belgrave St Ives specialises in Modern British and Contemporary Art. There is an emphasis on work by artists associated with Cornwall from the 1930s to the present time. The gallery is the only private art gallery in Cornwall showing regular exhibitions of work by major artists associated with the St Ives Modern Period as well as exhibitions of works by other select Modern British and Contemporary Artists. The gallery works with a number of artists, artistsí estates, collectors and other galleries, to produce an annual programme of changing monthly one-person and themed exhibitions usually accompanied by published material.
Located in the heart of historic and picturesque St Ives, the gallery is situated very close to the Barbara Hepworth Museum. Opened in 1998 as sister gallery to Belgrave Gallery (est. London 1974), the St Ives gallery became independent in 2010. The gallery aims to present exhibitions in an informative and friendly manner and the staff are always happy to discuss all aspects of art on display. In addition to gallery exhibitions, Belgrave St Ives has an active online presence (website, blog, Facebook) and holds a large inventory of art not on show that can easily be arranged for viewing by interested visitors.
