Here’s a pick of a few artists and works which will be exhibited in the Spring Private View tomorrow evening!
Gillian Holding‘s ‘Diptych Insight’ and other works is frequently figurative, allegorical and narrative. Inevitably, her initial expression of content assumes a life of its own, and through the inherent ambiguity of the imagery, is further transformed and developed in the light of the experience and context of the viewer. The two-dimensional work is often finished with a highly reflective surface. Originally explored and developed as an aesthetic solution to the challenge of presenting digital painting with the saturated depth of colour of a computer screen or projection, it has also become a means of technically holding together a variety of delicate and mixed media materials. But most significantly, it plays an important conceptual role in her practice.
Lucy Alexandra Howson (LAH) with ‘Diety’. LAH executes her practice in the hope of leaving the viewer with an insight into her eyesight, providing momentary escapism to an onlooker. LAH likes to purge her escapist fantasies into the eyes of others. With a focus on details that people often miss, LAH creates imagery that is adverse to the mundane and glorifies the abstract energy of the human subconscious.
Paulette Mckoy with ‘Element of Freedom’. Painting is like visual music for McKoy, almost like a dance and the artwork appears as her representation of dance and movement, created from a selection of warm fluid colours, expressed by vibrant yet soothing subtle lines and brush strokes, drawn from her spirit and mixed with the external sources surrounding her.
Spotlight Artist of the week Mariana Canet’s ‘Abstract 18′ photograph reflect and refract the reality. The light waves bend as they pass into different mediums in which the energy travels at a distinct speed, causing refraction. In her photos the real is reflected at the same time reproduced, distorted, diverted, fold back on itself. In this way, Mariana Canet shows in each of the photos the reality in different forms, as the real diversifies itself. The artist leaves the reflection open if what we see is in fact the reality.
Suzette Huwae with ‘Shiny Lips’. Her theme is colorful, strong multicultural women, as she believes that every woman should“Enjoy life in style and abundance to the full till it overflows”. Suzette her style can be described as glamour with an edge. Different techniques are used in her work as spray paint, acrylics, glitters, charcoal, drops and splashes, gold and silver leaves or even Swarovski stones. She also uses written tags and texts in her work to underline her message of her art. Suzette: “I like to pay attention to details. It needs to be unpredictable and exciting. Funky, edgy, sassy and colorful.
