Add a unique piece to your art collection, from the Tyrrell Art Gallery
Founded in 2008, the Tyrrell Art Gallery is an online gallery based in Cambridge, specialising in original works from international contemporary artists. It features a wide array of work from as far afield as Brazil, Russia and the US, but supports local talent, too – including Cambridge-based Alexandra Baraitser, whose work appeared at Kettle’s Yard back in 2019 as part of The Cambridge Show. Other highlights are Lois Gold from New York, Roseline Al Oumami from France, and Chisato Yamada, who blends acrylic and Iwaenogu – a type of traditional Japanese paint made from natural mineral pigments.
As a local hub for independent artists, the gallery is a great option for those looking to find a unique piece of artwork. Much of the collection is incredibly colourful and spirited, with paintings by the likes of Juan del Pozo and Victoria Horkan offering standout bursts of expressive vibrancy. Juan often depicts eclectic city scenes in subversive hues, highlighting the contrast between the cooler tones of buildings and industry with the warmer hues provided by the natural light that pervades his pieces. Victoria’s work, meanwhile, focuses more on organic forms and abstraction, frequently incorporating wings and feathers, translated with swift strokes that suggest an energised sense of movement.
At the Tyrrell Art Gallery website, you can find spotlight features on the artists the gallery represents, enabling you to find out a bit more about their background and the works on offer. “We are very selective in the artists we choose to represent, and very interested in the development of those artists,” says Louise Clift, the gallery owner. “Our features include interviews, information about past exhibitions, current projects, new collaborations and forthcoming exhibitions,” Louise explains. “The website is continually growing as we introduce new faces, and we update it regularly.”
