Zephyr ⚚ A warm all embracing westerly breeze.
Starting from a belief that all forms, and life, are interrelated, with a common cohesion, energy, and equation, ‘Zephyr ⚚ A warm all embracing westerly breeze’ series of 8 new prints combines digitally re-imagined watercolour still life painting with photographic imagery of significance to the artist and his work of the last six decades.

William Tillyer’s approach to painting is constantly evolving. His work redefines and reinterprets classic subject matter, like landscapes, still lifes, and portraits, in methods that challenge historical traditions and vary between bodies of work. During a time in which Tillyer believes art is too often a projection of the artist, he attempts to initiate instead a dialogue between elements of paint, surface, and subject. His “Helmsley Sky Studies”, for example, are based a cloud series by 19th-century Romantic painter John Constable. Unlike the originals, which Constable controlled solely by oil paint and precise brushwork, Tillyer incorporates grids of metal lattice; as the paint conforms to the wire mesh, the focus is shared by subject and materials, thus separating it from the confines of the traditional landscape.
Founded in 1969, with superb new premises situated in the heart of Mayfair, the gallery has held major exhibitions of Henri Matisse and Sam Francis as well as Robert Motherwell.
Bernard Jacobson Gallery has a strong presence at major international art fairs, having participated at The Armory Show, New York; Expo Chicago; Frieze Masters, London; and regularly taking part in the prestigious Art Basel fairs in Hong Kong, Basel and Miami Beach.
