BENEDICT RUBBRA EXPRESSION - Patrick Jones EXPRESSION - John Hubbard

Four last songs by Richard Strauss


Benedict Rubbra: At dusk

The emotions evoked in the poems transcend into music and then from the music into paintings.

Each poem suggests to me that the beauty of a life is manifest in its conclusion and in this conclusion is where the serenity of a fruitful and completed life is found.

The paintings follow references in the poems to the light in the landscape and the fading of the seasons. The overall concept of continuity is maintained by repeating a particular colour.

See Current for more information.


THE ART ROOM 2016

The gallery in Topsham closed in November 2014 and The Art Room is now a web-based platform.

I provide a new advisory service, ‘real art in real homes’, offering to develop and enhance private and corporate collections.

I also undertake exhibition consultation and curatorial projects. The first was the major exhibition of work by Benedict Rubbra at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum, Exeter in the Spring of 2015.

Thank you for your support which has been an important aspect of the successes of The Art Room and I hope that visiting the programme of exhibitions has been a source of enjoyment and visual pleasure.
