Mike Service: Still Lifes and the Caribbean exhibition
June 15 @ 9:30 am BST
From now until Friday 12 July from 9.30am to 5.30pm at David Simon Contemporary, 37 High Street go along to the new exhibition called ‘Mike Service: Still Lifes and the Caribbean’. Following a recent trip to the Grenadines, Mike is showing paintings in oil with palette-knife of the Caribbean, with native fishing boats and huts, alongside still lifes of roses, anemones and wild flower studies. These studies show a different sense of observation and demonstrate the full skills of this experienced painter. Walking into this exhibition the energetic and vigourous paintings of the Caribbean are balanced by the calm of his latest still life compositions. Single rose stems sit in simple glass tumblers and the ordinary dandelion, plucked from the edge of the footpath has a renewed beauty in a whiskey tumbler. These studies show a different sense of observation and demonstrate the full skills of this painter. Mike Service trained in Fine Art at Bath Spa University after taking early retirement and has exhibited his paintings widely in the UK including in Bath, London and at the Royal West of England Academy, Bristol. Represented by David Simon Contemporary since 2014, first solo exhibition 2019. For more information phone 01963 359102 and visit www.davidsimoncontemporary.com
