  • New artist @ Wyecliffe!

    Posted: Jul 15 2014

    We are pleased to welcome a new artist to the ranks at Wyecliffe...Ken Rausch.  Gallery director Ben discovered Rausch's work at the Art Expo in New York earlier in the year and bought every single piece on his stand!  Rausch utilizes heat and acid etching, along with special paints, to create works that are iridescent, intense, and beautiful on a very different canvas...copper. He also uses specialized grinding tools to create texture and depth. The top coat is a multi-layered resin that gives an almost “glass-like” feel to each piece. The result is a painting that takes on a personality of its own as light hits the surface.   Ken’s pieces of art are a perfect combination of motif, color, light, silhouette and shadow Ken is native to Greater Cincinnati, and still calls the area home. He is inspired by nature, particularly the verdant, valleys and rolling hills of his home.He graduated...
  • Charity Events 2014

    Posted: Jul 03 2014

    Over the past few months we have been lucky enough to be involved in not 1 but 2 charity events with artist Kerry Darlington. The first event was a charity dinner and auction with the Rainbow Trust, a charity which we here at Wyecliffe have supported for many years. The Rainbow Trust is a Surrey based charity that provides nationwide support for terminally ill children and their families. For the past 5 years, with the help of Lusso Homes, they have held an annual charity golf day at Wentworth Golf Club which we at Wyecliffe have attended since it begun (although only for the evening entertainment as Ben is not much of a golfer!). The event has raised over £300,000 and we are incredibly proud to be invited every year. This year along with Kerry we donated a special edition of her ‘Tree of Life – Gold’ Unique Edition for...
  • Incredible New Work by Alex Echo

    Posted: Jun 28 2014

    As many of you will know, Alex Echo, one of our bestselling artists, recently displayed a collection of works at his solo exhibition, Alchemy, at Bruton Street in London. The showcase displayed a combination of his wide and deep knowledge of art history, with references to popular culture, iconography, and nature, portrayed within inventive, informative and accessible contemporary art. During the phenomenally successful show, a silent auction took place on two very special pieces. The first, a custom made Fender Stratocaster belonging to Eric Clapton, and painted at his request by Alex in 2012. The proceedings raised were donated to the recovery facility The Crossroads Centre in Antigua, founded by Eric Clapton. The second piece to be auctioned, for the benefit of The Tusk Foundation, was an incredibly special piece, dedicated to Jasmine Isabella, Alex’s daughter. Being deeply concerned by the wellbeing of animals and the environment, it was at...
