Coast 2020

Painting by Tony Minnion titled Porth Nanven

Coast 2020 at Trelissick Gallery brings together the work of three of Cornwall’s notable painters, Robert Jones, Tony Minnion and Philip Lyons. 

Together, but through three very individual pairs of eyes, they explore the coastal margins. Between them their paintings reach from the very edge of the shore where the waves strike the land, gaze down to the tumble of sea worn rocks at the base of a hidden cove and catch the often present glimpse on a distant horizon, where land becomes water.

Different in technique, view point and composition all these artists share a common passion for Cornwall’s coast and evidence its continuing fascination amongst Cornwall’s contemporary artists.
