Description

David Barnes, Aled Prichard Jones and Stephen Yardley are all popular exhibitors at the gallery, each with his own distinctive take on the Welsh landscape.

Aled Prichard Jones worked as an architect before beginning a new career as a painter in his retirement. He is now an established artist working in both oils and pastel, living in his native North Wales. “Painting in both pastel and oils has, I believe, broadened the scope of my work and I will continue to paint in both mediums in future.” he says.

Stephen Yardley is a highly successful illustrator as well as a respected painter. His paintings move in and out of abstraction but the themes remain the same; the effects of light and weather on the landscape. “Much of my work is involved with the Vale of Glamorgan Heritage Coastline in South Wales. I’m also inspired by the drama and beauty of the Welsh landscape, the British coastline and by the rich and varied landscape and architecture of Europe; in particular Italy, France and Spain.”

David Barnes was born in Africa and spent his early childhood there. He qualified as a chartered accountant and spent most of his working life in professional practice before taking up painting in his retirement. He progressed quickly, earning his rapid success after spending many hours in the studio. His earliest days as a painter was very much shaped by the goal of emulating Sir Kyffin Williams, whose work inspired him to paint with a palette knife.

“I’m delighted to be bringing together three of our best loved exhibitors for this show,” says Albany Gallery owner Mary Yapp. “Each of them has a very strong and distinctive style, and his own way of tackling the landscape. They have produced some truly stunning work.”
