‘The Cakes are Back’ – at the Alexander Gallery in Bath

Together with some of this year’s figure studies.

Andrew Holmes cake paintings have been well-received in Bath, a beautiful, historic city with an abundance of tea shops and varied eateries. He painted Aphrodite and Adonis and I am a donut earlier in the year and they are making their debut in a location which feels very appropriate.

The owner of the Alexander Gallery recently forwarded a photograph of a few of Andrew’s works which he’d placed in the window of the gallery, providing an eye-catching and welcoming winter display.

A selection of the girls in white dress series is exhibiting alongside the cakes over the winter season as well. We are thrilled to see how well the artworks complement each other in this elegant setting.

These studies exemplify Andrew’s interest in how a contemporary approach to traditional style combines with the context of how we perceive and appreciate aesthetics.

The gallery in Bath is in an excellent location, central for visitors to enjoy the wonderful architecture Bath offers and browse the shops, together with such a rich and abundant choice of good places to eat.
