Valley Parables: New Paintings by James Donovan

James Donovan is exhibiting forty new paintings at Cardiff’s Kooywood Gallery from Thursday September 10th.

The Aberdare artist’s new paintings are a return to what he calls the ‘new, old Wales’, where old habits die hard and stereotypes live on through a cast of comical yet poignant characters that reflect personal and universal views on valleys life and Welsh culture.

The show continues until Saturday October 3rd.

Cornwall

I’ve never been to Cornwall before, but I’ll be making the long drive to Lowe-Holland Gallery in Falmouth this weekend to deliver some paintings for their Summer show called ‘Radiant’, which starts on 1st July and continues until 30th August. Showing in new places has its perks –  I’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to looking in the local galleries and hope to come home with some fresh ideas for new work.

Here are the paintings that will be included:
