I live and work in the small village of Stillingfleet a few miles
south of York.
I draw much inspiration for my work from the views from my studio
which overlooks the village green which is part of a managed
I was greatly saddened by the recent pruning and felling of a number
of trees on the green with the consequent loss of wild-life habitats
and much of the work in this exhibition has been inspired by this
I took photos of the tree stumps before they were uprooted and
collected interesting pieces of bark shed naturally by plane trees
growing on the green. These were used to create printing plates to
produce the body of work entitled HTST – Homage To Stillingfleet
Printing using the plane tree bark is an incredibly challenging
process – testing the printing press, paper and artist to their
Unlike many printmakers I prefer to print only a few times from each
plate or even make just a single print from a plate.
Most of the plates I make to print from are not very attractive in
their own right but occasionally there are exceptions. Some of these
more beautiful plates are included in this exhibition.

DARRELL EVANES - metal sculpture
A successful work of art is not one which resolves contradictions in
spurious harmony, but one which expresses the idea of harmony
negatively by embodying the contradictions, pure and uncompromising in
its innermost structure. Art does not solve problems but makes us
aware of their existence. It opens our eyes to see and our brain to
imagine. Nothing exists until or unless it is observed. An artist is
making something exist by observing it. And his hope for other people
is that they will also make it exist by observing it Philosophers say
that nothing can be seen that is neither illuminated nor colored.

Darrell Evenas is a Yorkshire born Artist/Sculptor,
he sculptures are uniquely creative.
Darrell uses the concept of fragments in time, based in history of
what once was and is no more.
He Makes use of recycled metals using semi abstract shapes and forms
which suggests lines within space.
Chains are often found within the artist sculptures, they link present
and the past.
The chains counter lever our bond between space and gravity.
Elements which are extracted from a inner world known as the periodic
table are a few of the components
such as Iron and rust , which are born from raw materials from the
universe are incorporated within the artist works.
Darrell's has two large pieces in a collection of 20th/ 21st art
collected by Chris Ingram whose collection has recently been on show
in the light box Gallery Woking, Surrey .
Commisions and exhibitions
Darrell has had a number of commissions and exhibited many works in
North Yorkshire and the south of England , his most recent commission
is for a boat a fishing trawler
When we speak of Nature it is wrong to forget that we are ourselves a
part of Nature. We ought to view ourselves with the same curiosity and
openness with which we study a tree, the sky or a thought, because we
too are linked to the entire universe. "Where the spirit does not work
with the hand there is no art"

I am a full-time gallery artist, living and working on the edge of the
Peak District National Park. My figurative sculptures are in a bold
and semi-abstract style, with graceful sweeping curves and simplified
The main subjects of my current work are re-interpretations of
European folk tales such as Red Riding Hood and the Wolf. My version
of this cautionary classic has a contemporary twist, she is presented
not as an innocent victim, but as a confident femme-fatale.
There is often an element of dark humour in my work, nothing is as it
first appears and nothing can be taken for granted. I use children’s
stories as the vehicle to explore the universal themes raised in terms
of adult-oriented concerns; love and jealousy, duplicity and trust,
all usually bittersweet in nature.
A Fox once saw a Crow fly off with a piece of
cheese in its beak and settle on a branch of a tree.
"That's for me, as I am a Fox," said Master
Reynard, and he walked up to the foot of the tree.
"Good day, Mistress Crow," he cried. "How
well you are looking today: how glossy your feathers; how bright your
eye. I feel sure your voice must surpass that of other birds, just as
your figure does; let me hear but one song from you that I may greet
you as the Queen of Birds."
The Crow lifted up her head and began to caw
her best, but the moment she opened her mouth the piece of cheese fell
to the ground, only to be snapped up by Master Fox.
"That will do," said he. "That was all I
wanted. In exchange for your cheese I will give you a piece of advice
for the future: "Do not trust flatterers."

Janine Baldwin's abstract expressions of landscape and
the North Yorkshire coast reflect her passion for the surroundings of
her home of Scarborough.
Painting with oil on canvas, she uses oil sticks to
accentuate the composition with bright, colourful and loose
flourishes. The resulting images have a freshness and energy that owe
much to the Abstract Expressionist movement that have been a major
influence in her work.
Since graduating from York University, Scarborough
Campus in 2001, Janine has shown her work in the Royal Academy of Arts
and the Society of Women Artists in London. Currently she is also
exhibiting in Canada

David Baumforth is an internationally respected painter. His
paintings are for enjoyment. He paints the things and places he
loves - the North Yorkshire coast, it's hinterland, and Andalucia -
always striving to paint the truth. He believes that work must have
intellect and be carried out with as much skill as possible, but in
the end it is the viewer that must judge. He was born in York, and
is self-taught. His work has been shown in many exhibitions and
galleries in the UK and Europe.
"Anyone who has an eye for art, the deep passionate colour of
Turner, the pure loving observations of Constable must rejoice that
our century has David Baumforth. This work is ‘The real thing’, wet
with sea spray we can feel, fresh with gust of wind, always
mysterious, always beautiful: art to be cherished”. - Sister Wendy
Beckett, Art Historian and Broadcaster
"Baumforth makes no claims for his work. Like many honest artists of
skill and belief he just gets down to it and paints the places he
loves to the best of his ability knowing that, in the end, the work
must speak for itself. Uncomplicated and deeply moving"
David Lee, Editor of the Jackdaw, Art Critic and Broadcaster
