This series plays with the ideas of ‘subject’ and ‘being’. Each work places the sitter momentarily in the space and emphasises both the anchored figure and the enveloping quality of the atmosphere, suggesting a brief and interrupted quiescence.

Alex Milsom was born and raised in New Zealand where she studied Visual Arts in Auckland majoring in Printmaking. In 2006 she embarked on a period of foreign travel which took her eventually to Glasgow where she was based for several years before returning to her native New Zealand. Milsom works extensively in mezzotint responding to it’s velvety blackness and intimate scale to produce her dreamlike images. A world of childhood narrative inspired by stories told to her by her grandmother. These fairytales are acted out with human and animal characters that address issues based upon the human condition.

Jane McCance 4th – 25th Oct
Mansfield Park Gallery is delighted to host the first solo exhibition of new paintings by up and coming new artist Jane McCance. Jane’s work comprises two quite disparate styles. Her landscapes are ghostly and atmospheric, packed with emotion and mystery achieved through the application of fine layers of paint, whereas her still-lifes are a riot of texture and impasto paint into which she then scores and scratches to add the fine detail.
