LOST IN A WORLD OF INTRICATE OBSERVATIONS FROM NATURE
A chance opportunity brought a small twig with tiny crab apples. Now Louisa is captivated by the way Lichen grows and enjoys searching for just the right stick, studying the detail before capturing it on beautiful smooth Strathmore Bristol Board using ultra sharp Staedtler pencils. She sits quietly in her Hut with Radio 4 wittering in the background, zoning out from the world around her as she looks ever closer at plants, insects and birds. Texture, shadows, silhouettes & movement created with marks and tone, it’s rarely about the colour. Recent work concentrates on the detail through the Lichen and Insect Drawings and Etchings alongside experimentation with Graphite. Louisa is a partner at Artichoke Gallery, Ticehurst.

Style: Landscape and Abstraction
Materials: Acrylic & Oil
Location: Ruislip, Middlesex
Price range: From £400
The source of my inspiration has always been landscape. My early work led me to explore urban scenes of devastation and the arbitrary layering of rock formations through colour and psychoanalytical abstract responses. The tortuous nature of my early explorations has now given way to an obsession with a calmer harmony of land and sky through a kind of realism, but at the same time attempting to retain the abstract nature of formal relationships that were established in my earlier work. Constructing a painting involves layering, image cancelling, image revealing, partial image revealing and image superimposition; with drawing ever present as a structural catalyst and a form of focal detailing. This process continues until image related spatial cohesion, balance or appropriate imbalance speaks back from the painting, flux fades or stabilises and the work takes on a life.

Madeline developed her interest in figurative art through sculpting. This led her to research the techniques of the Italian and Dutch old masters; she makes her own paints, oil and egg tempera and prepares the boards with gesso in the traditional way. This gives her paintings an extraordinary and distinctive quality. Although not true miniatures, her exquisite paintings are defined by their small size. Many are portraits but she is also interested in still-
Her training in the techniques of the old masters was learned in the studio of renaissance expert Dr David Cranswick.

Rosina paints many different subjects, in oils, acrylics and mixed media.
Anything can send her on a journey. The light on a piece of fruit, a flower, an interior or a landscape. She finds the shapes in a still life more important than the objects themselves, they are just happenings with every painting a new and exciting adventure.
Although she has two dedicated studio’s Rosina will paint wherever and whenever the subject excites, so her whole house can become a workspace.
For landscapes, Rosina often works in situ and in all weathers, in order to capture the immediacy of changing light and the mood of the subject.
Rosina began painting in the seventies, working mainly in oils, which continue to be a passion although she loves the immediacy of acrylics and mixed media and now uses all of these in her work.
She paints at a feverish speed to capture the subject using a very limited palette in any one painting. The colours can often depend on her mood as well as the requirements of the subject, sometimes strong colour, sometimes muted. Rosina uses a variety of brushes and palette knives or anything else that will make an exciting finished work.

I work by immersing myself in a place. I sketch, paint and explore and then seek to convey the atmosphere and beauty, which I have got to know a little, in more developed oil paintings, worked on in my studio in Cambridge.
I try to work in a way which is both visually accurate and expressive. I am very interested in creating a sense of depth and space, in movement and light and in observation of the subtleties of natural colour harmonies; as well as seeking to convey the spirit of a place.

Leila's inspiration is her connection with the sea. The vast panorama of changing light, dramatic weather and powerful water, framed by rocks solid with history, yet transient with time and the rhythm of the earth. The minutiae of rock pools juxtaposed against the expansive sweep of sea and sky. Here, she feels a completeness incorporating time and space, stillness and movement.
Her paintings seek to recreate this connection by distilling something essential which will resonate with you, the viewer, evoking your own memories and experiences. Marks are made and layers unveiled, revealing exciting textural qualities. Her goal is to portray the essence of her chosen subject and herself, as the artist.
Her paintings are in private collections in France, Italy, Israel, the USA, Canada, Hong Kong, and Saudi Arabia, as well as the UK.

David began painting when he was about 7 years old. His first teacher was a wonderful lady, Maud Bennett who lit a fire in him which is as strong as it ever was. She gave him the passion of paint. Years later, he worked with his uncle, the muralist and portraitist, Sidney Smith, who introduced him to Peter Garrard PRBA. They became close friends, and Peter mentored David over a period of time. His sense of observation, and understanding of mark making changed. Later he worked with, and enjoyed the observations of Tom Ryan PRHA. What interests David is the figure, nature, and especially atmosphere. More than anything else he is a painter of mood. As well as painting in Ireland, he also travels to paint. He has painted in South Africa in 2013 and 2015, and in Jerusalem in 2014 as well as most parts of Western Europe. There is also the calling to the North West coast of Ireland, and Mayo in particular. In 2014 he did workshops with two American painters, Randal Exxon, and Jeff Reed. The later was influential in making changes in the way David works. He was elected a member of the Dublin Painting and Sketching Club 2014

Bev paints scenes of city life, full of people bustling from one place to another, going to work, going home, out shopping, out running walking or working. She records moments which are generally overlooked, rushed through and forgotten; on the way home during rush hour, early morning at the bus stop, rushed lunch breaks, Saturday shopping trips. People form the focus of Bev’s work giving it movement and meaning whilst the buildings, buses and trams form the backdrop giving the community its structure and embodying its history.
