Belgrave St Ives - Modern & Contemporary Art

BO HILTON - Recent Paintings

BO HILTON - Recent Paintings

5th to 20th May 2024

Our next exhibitions feature the work of artists Helen Feiler and Bo Hilton.

Helen Feiler - Paintings & Drawings is derived mainly from time spent working on the Kenyan island of Lamu on the eastern coast of Africa, where the artist painted regularly for 20 years. Helen, the daughter of artists Paul Feiler and June Miles, has exhibited widely, including at Redfern Gallery, London, and is also well known for the bold sculptural jewellery produced at her studio and gallery in Newlyn from 1998.

Bo Hilton - Recent Paintings: Based in Penzance, Hilton's practice deals with the conceptual and poetic possibilities of the medium of painting. His approach relies on a process of applying, removing, then re-applying paint in diverse ways until the painting begins to speak for itself.

The son of artists Roger and Rose Hilton, Bo believes the painting should work as a whole in terms of colour harmony and balance of forms and is particularly interested in the resulting satisfaction of the eye as it moves around each individual painting, weaving connections between memory, space and time.

Our annual St Ives & Modern British Art 2024 exhibition is now closed but can still be viewed online.

This year's exhibition included over 100 works by around 50 different artists: Gillian Ayers, W. Barns-Graham, Moira Beaty, Romi Behrens, Sven Berlin, John Blackburn, Bob Bourne, Michael Canney, Christopher Chamberlain, John Christopherson, John Copnall, Tom Cross, Bob Crossley, John Emanuel, Anthony Eyton, Clifford Fishwick, Terry Frost, Anthony Fry, Hilda Goldwag, Anthony Gross, David Haughton, Patrick Hayman, Barbara Hepworth, Josef Herman, Patrick Heron, Roger Hilton, John Hitchens, James Hull, Leon Kossoff, Peter Lanyon, Alan Lowndes, Alexander Mackenzie, Margo Maeckelberghe, Daphne McClure, Dorothy Mead, John Miller, John Milne, Ben Nicholson, Kate Nicholson, Breon O'Casey, Victor Pasmore, Bryan Pearce, John Piper, Richard Rees, Brian Rice, Guy Roddon, William Scott, David Smith, Humphrey Spender, Arnold van Praag, Keith Vaughan, Roy Walker, Alfred Wallis, Karl Weschke and Bryan Wynter.

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, with 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. Belgrave St Ives works with a number of artists, artists’ estates, collectors and galleries, to produce a programme of changing one-person and themed exhibitions.

For 22 years Belgrave St Ives was located in the heart of historic and picturesque St Ives, and is now operating online to focus on its core activities and to work more closely with individual clients and artists.

Opened in 1998 as sister gallery to Belgrave Gallery (est. London 1974), the gallery became independent in 2010. Belgrave St Ives aims to present exhibitions in an informative and friendly manner and the team are always happy to discuss all aspects of the art we deal in.

Gallery team: Michael Gaca (Director), Richard Blackborow and Dominica Williamson.
