Giles’ art is published by Whistlefish Galleries in Cornwall. Visitors to the South West will have become used to seeing his sea-life imagery appearing in the windows of their ten seaside galleries in St Ives, Padstow, Falmouth and Dartmouth – to name just a few. His work appears as a range of prints, the full list of which can be viewed here: whistlefish.com
But Giles is also passionate about supporting independent art galleries. His paintings can be seen in a growing number of carefully selected galleries across the South of England. Independent galleries are the lifeblood of fresh new art. Their windows are a beacon of fresh ideas and imagery amongst the gaudy blur of homogenised displays on the high street. Without these wonderful institutions showcasing the work of painters and sculptors so much great art would be lost from view.
Art galleries can sometimes appear to be intimidating environments. A well curated display of work is one that allows the viewer time to stop and consider a piece. It is all too easy for a wall to be filled randomly with imagery when pictures need space to breathe. An engaging gallery is also about the staff and their ability to put a customer at ease; to be on hand with advice about the works for sale without being pushy. Art is a very personal choice and something that is going to be in a home for years to come. All of the galleries that Giles’ work can be viewed in offer this wonderful, personal and carefully curated ethos.
