ART5 Gallery is delighted to announce Love Dances Here, a solo exhibition of work by sought-after Devon-based artist Yvonne Coomber! This highly-anticipated annual event is the perfect introduction to spring, showcasing an exclusive new collection of the artist’s signature glittering floral paintings, alongside a selection of brand new limited edition prints.
We’re also excited to present Yvonne’s new range of ‘linen meadows’, a collection of paintings where Yvonne’s signature colourful style is fused with a sense of simplicity, for a more mellow and spacious look, where the paint can breathe and sing.
After gaining a degree in Philosophy and Literature at Brighton University, Yvonne went on to study Fine Art in Sussex, broadening her artistic ability and immersion into the world of painting. Over the last decade, she has established herself as a highly collectable artist, with her paintings becoming instantly recognisable worldwide.
Yvonne’s love of nature and the English countryside deeply influences her work, often painting in the depths of the Devonshire meadows to draw immediate inspiration from the picturesque surroundings. She captures the chaotic yet harmonious energy within nature, whilst bringing warmth and joy to the canvas.
Yvonne beautifully blends various materials to create layer upon layer of tactile texture, adding another dimension to her captivating paintings. The glitter, reminiscent of early morning dew, the vibrant colours conjuring the kaleidoscopic palette of wild places, and the delicate scattering of flowers come together organically in her unique artistic vision.
‘After the phenomenal successes of her previous solo shows with us, we’re delighted to be hosting ‘Love Dances Here’, an exciting exhibition of acclaimed artist Yvonne Coomber. Her paintings are increasingly sought-after, and we’re proud to have been the foremost exhibitor of Yvonne’s work in the South for the past decade.’ Gallery manager Melissa Luckhurst remarks.
Visit this exclusive exhibition and lose yourself in Yvonne’s romantic collection of enchanting paintings!
Love Dances Here is a free exhibition running from 7th to 15th April.

Grace Wilmshurst is an artist living and working in Brighton. Grace grew up in the Wyle Valley in Wiltshire, surrounded by wildlife, influencing her painting today, with a fascinating yet sinister rural beauty.
Wild animals, dogs and birds are the inspiration for many of her oil paintings, and play a powerful role in her imagination. She is currently exploring the characteristic, muscular bodies of greyhounds and whippets which belie their sensitive, gentle nature.
