Main Gallery


One of the definitions of the word ‘rare’ is ‘having the component parts not closely packed together’. Such a definition aptly describes this present exhibition which shows the disparate and wide ranging work, processes and practices of this long-established artist’s group.

Gustavius Payne

Heather Eastes

Alan Salisbury




April 2nd to April 20th 2017

Sponsored by Bethan Jenkins AM.


Journeys are often associated with physical movements through a geographic space and it is interesting that all three of the exhibitors spent time during their training as scholarship or exchange students in Europe: Payne in Greece, Eastes in Dusseldorf, Germany and Salisbury in Paris. Without doubt this experience ‘abroad’ enriched their visual literacy and helped them to develop their painting as part of the tradition of European culture. Journeys can also involve meanderings of the mind with imaginative outcomes. Gustavius delves into the collective unconscious to find the means to explore the human condition. Heather re-visits early idealized memories that also hint sadly at impending futures of change. Alan on the other hand, journeys into art history and the genre of Still Life playing with its stories and allegories. All three exhibitors use the same stuff - paint- and employ the same representational format but take the viewer on different journeys with different starting and finishing points that exemplify the diverse modes of travel that contemporary artists undertake.


Gustavius Payne “This body of work is part of an ongoing process of distillation, using the notion of a collective unconscious to question, explore and comment on contemporary society and the wider human predicament; What kind of future is being built, as those designated as 'other' continue to inspire malleable definitions for value and morality?”

Heather Eastes “The process and materials are cathartic, create a Dreamtime and a precision of concentration through which to explore the human condition – the revisitation of earliest memory, the trauma of being 'alone' and mortal - to dance with conjured images in edens beyond pain, to seek meaning, to make epiphanies.”


Alan Salisbury “Recent work is often appropriated from historical sources within the canon of European Painting. I am influenced by Post Modernist idea with regard to originality, cultural hierarchies and the role of irony. This has led me to looking in particular at the genre of Still Life and Portraiture reproducing, subverting and playing with images mainly from the 17th and 16th centuries in a spirit of celebration and hopefully with a sense of humour.”
