Welcome to Oriel Mimosa Exhibitions. This page will bring you the latest information about our ongoing exhibitions at our gallery at 70 Rhosmaen St, Llandeilo.
Oriel Mimosa is pleased to announce that we will be having an exhibition of works by artist, Theo Crutchley-Mack - opening in our new gallery on Saturday 14th November.
Theo Crutchley-Mack was born in Bristol and has lived in various parts of the UK, including Cornwall and Pembrokeshire. At the age of sixteen, he became the first teenager to design a coin for the Royal Mint, which was later released into circulation as part of the 2012 Olympic celebrations. This remarkable achievement at such a young age sparked his love of drawing.
He studied BA (Hons) in Drawing at Falmouth University in Cornwall. It was here that Theo developed a keen interest in ruins and abandonment, using the location's rich history to inspire his work. He is, by his own admission, "obsessed with abandonment and decay" and this theme runs throughout his work. His boats and seascapes painstakingly detail the ravages of time on manmade surfaces. He spends many hours in coastal locations studying the landscapes in differing variations of weather and light, drawing and painting as he goes.
Theo's work is highly evocative and atmospheric, capturing the profound and beautiful effects of nature on a landscape.
Here is a preview of some of the work Theo will be exhibiting;
