A Lizard-based

artist has spoken of his pride after being taken on by one of UK’s leading


Abstract painter

and printmaker, Chris Billington, has joined the Stoneman Gallery in Penzance.

The move will see

Chris exhibiting alongside works of artistic luminaries including Damien Hirst,

Sir Terry Frost, Barbara Hepworth, Patrick Heron, David Hockney, Gary Hume and

William Crozier.

“I take great pride

in being represented by the Stoneman Gallery,” said Chris, who is currently

getting ready for exhibitions in Germany and Spain.

“The gallery has a

fantastic reputation and they look after, and exhibit the work of, a number of

great artists.

“It feels great to

be a part of it and I’m looking forward to building the relationship further.”

The gallery, which

is in Chapel Street, was founded by Linda Stoneman.

Her late husband,

the master printmaker, Hugh Stoneman, worked with a range of artists including

Sir Terry Frost, Grayson Perry and Gary Hume.

Linda said: “ When

Chris came to see me I was in the process of taking on new artists. I thought

his paintings and prints would fit in well with the other work.

“He’s very easy to

deal with and is so enthusiastic about his work and being part of the


Chris’ work ‘Hot

Dog’ can be seen at The Stoneman Gallery’s current ‘Dog Show’ exhibition until

Saturday, October 23.
