'Distillation': 30 Years of Painting

14 February - 30 May 2015

"Shani Rhys James has come to us like a breath of fresh air that blows away so many of the stagnant theories that burden the art of our times” - Sir Kyffin Williams

‘Distillation’ is the largest and most comprehensive collection of work by the artist Shani Rhys James, who is widely recognised for her powerful figurative paintings.  This exhibition brings together the whole range of her astounding, award winning paintings, with the early prize winning paintings displayed alongside the artist’s latest developments. It is a selection of chosen pieces from museums and private collectors; a distillation of 30 years work on the themes of family, self, childhood, interiors and relationships.
