Red sails: recent ceramics, paintings and bronzes - Stephen Benwell

Benwell continues his passion for classical form and vessel with a spread of male nude ceramic sculptures and statuesque vessels decorated with layers of accreted colour and splash. New to this show are a small line up of bronze busts and cheekily overpainted prints with Benwell signature scrabbly brushwork and sensuous pastel colour palette.
