Warm & Glowing by Jeff Rowland
Inspired by scenes from Jeff’s hometown of Northumberland, Warm & Glowing is the epitome of Autumn. Jeff has moved away from his usual colder palette of blues and greys to embrace these seasonal shades, which complement the falling rain.

This is just one of a selection of new August Releases from contemporary artists Neil Dawson, Jeff Rowland and Paul Corfield.

  4. Something For The Weekend.
Dan Lane, aka MECHANICA.
 “My life has been driven by a need to know how things work, and how things come together and go apart again.
Add to that a love of all things unusual and off-centre and I have a mix of interests that have inspired my imagination to create these pieces.”
Dan Lane revealed his unusual use of gears, cogs, wires and bracketry to the public earlier this year to great acclaim, and has already appeared on the BBC and in a variety of art magazines.
 Each of his pieces is the result of hours of meticulous searching, collecting and arranging various parts. The results is something dark but beautiful; a take on natural forms by mechanical intervention – an industrial version of life.
 A selection of his works are available to view at Castle Fine Art, Mayfair now, as part of their Summer Exhibition which will run until Sunday 21st September. Something For The Weekend.

Firth of Forth by Neil Dawson.
In Firth of Forth, Dawson has used oil on canvas to capture the beauty of the Edinburgh skyline and the vast structure of the bridge which some have regarded as the eighth wonder of the world, encompassing and celebrating  Edinburgh’s heritage in an ever-changing landscape.

  8. Something For The Weekend.
As the 100 year anniversary of WWI draws nearer, artists and sculptors across the world are finding creative and innovative ways to commemorate the occasion.
At Castle Galleries, we’re proud to be launching our own commemorative piece, Never Forgotten by Nic Joly, a miniature sculpture which will be released on 4th August, with £100 from each sale going to The Royal British Legion. You can find out more about this special piece here.
But our pick of the rest has to be this incredibly expansive project from artist Paul Cummins, entitled “Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red”.
With the help of volunteers, Cummins has created and ‘planted’ 888,246 ceramic poppies in and around the Tower of London. Each poppy represents a member of the Allied forces who lost their life in the war, and from the 5th August they will be sold off at £25 each, with the net proceeds going to a selection of war charities.
The vast scale of the installation aims to reflect the significance of this important centenary.

  9. Genuine Fake (In the style of Roy Lichtenstein) by John Myatt
Notice anything familiar about this piece? You may well do, as it comes from John Myatt, an artist who has built his career on his ingenious ability to adapt the style of other artists.
The former art teacher has not always used his skills with a paintbrush for legitimate purposes. In 1999, he received a 12-month prison sentence for his part in ‘the greatest art fraud of the 20th century’.
After a spell in prison, Myatt vowed not to pick up a paint brush again, but was persuaded – by the officer who arrested him, no less – to harness his artistic talents in a positive way. Not only did he begin to paint his “genuine fakes”, he has also worked with Scotland Yard’s arts and antiques squad to help them spot forgeries.
His latest collection, aptly titled ‘Fake’, is his most ambitious yet. Casting his determined gaze and practiced paintbrush across decades of art works, he produces startling renderings of many well-known pieces. From the bold geometry of Joan Miró, to the dreamy impasto of Claude Monet, Myatt expertly shifts between each celebrated artist, absorbing their subject, form and style with finesse and flair.
Fake was launched at Castle Fine Art, Mayfair earlier this month and now a selection of limited edition prints from the exhibition are available to view at various galleries throughout the country.

Sod This for a Game of Soldiers! By Bob Barker
This special piece from popular nostalgic artist Bob Barker has been produced to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of WWI. It depicts the famous ‘Christmas truce’ in 1914, during which German and English soldiers came together for a game of football; a symbolic moment of peace and humanity amidst the gruesome theatre of war.
Barker was inspired to create this piece by his grandfather, who fought during the war.
"We still had one of his medals, it was the Great War Medal, the type that had an angel on it and his name was printed around the edge…From a spark of an idea whilst talking with my brother, researching so much over a period of five months, imagining so many different emotions - all of this poured out into the piece."  - Bob Barker.
This highly collectable piece is officially released tomorrow, Saturday 19 July. Find out more here or purchase it here.
