Into the Mystic - (Published or amended 2018-06-04)Print details for Into the Mystic CACD id E.10131

Saturday, 9th June 2018 until Friday, 15th June 2018

Into the Mystic is the latest body of work from photographer and enamel artist, Steve Payter of Artisan Cornwall.   Its focus is the elemental and raw nature of the evocative Penwith Peninsula, and comprises photography, jewellery and a new range of fused enamel images.
Much of the new work has a ‘water and rocks’ theme and the flagship image is an atmospheric shot of ancient sea-worn boulders at Porth Nanven emerging wet and  gleaming from the enveloping mists of the incoming tide.   The image is printed direct onto a frameless aluminium panel providing a glare-free finish and a subtle shimmer which emphasises the colours and textures of these fascinating rocks.
Complementing the photographic work, but on a much smaller scale, will be a new range of framed abstract images created in fused enamel.  Using copper and aluminium as a base, Steve fuses and builds up layers of enamel to create individual and contemporary pieces of work that are redolent of the natural vistas of Cornwall’s seas, skies, rocks and moors.
Completing the show will be Steve’s range of enamel earrings and pendants  - graphic designs in a range of shapes and sizes in aluminium, copper and stainless steel.
Mounted prints and cards will also be available.
Open daily from 10.30 am to 5.00 pm.
