The World of Woodroffe

07 Feb 2015 - 18 Apr 2015

Fantastical creatures and mythical landscapes await you in the magical world of artist and writer Patrick Woodroffe (1940-2014). 

A familiar figure around Falmouth, Patrick was internationally known for his unrivalled genius as a draughtsman. His work belongs to a tradition begun by Hieronymous Bosch(1450-1516) and continued in the 20th century by the surrealists.

He was a disciplined worker, his brushes and pens were laid out neatly like implements at a surgeons table.

This show will showcase a selection of his paintings, drawings and tomographs.

A selection of mounted giclee prints will be available for sale in the gallery shop.
