Have you ever looked at a piece of art and thought ‘How did they come up with that?’ Have you ever wanted to know about the creative inspirations and the thoughts behind their work? – take a look at the astounding creative and original ideas on display in the gallery today;
First up, Aida Emelyanova‘s head sculpture, her work is a fusion of installation artwork and canvas in which her atmosphere-laden installations create an absorbing and experiential enviroment, expanding the landscape/vista and meaning of her painting. Of Kazakh-Russian birth, Aida is a London-based artist and recent graduate from Chelsea School of Art and Design, whose artwork is fast emerging as a highlight of the capital’s flourishing art-scene.
Here, we have Ailish Sullivan‘s piece entitled ‘Bone’. Ailish enjoys the delicate and organic process of painting with watercolours, a building up of paint which relates to the growth and building of cells. Most recently she has been taking inspiration from under the microscope, collaborating with scientists.
Next up is the very detailed waxwork by Guy Haddon-Grant. Aswell as waxworks, Guy also draws charcoal portraiture. His works are both composed and captivating, informed by the innate forms that surround us.
From sculpture to illustration, here we have Katherine Troman‘s ‘Louise’s Paradise’. Katherine’s work focuses on the interpretations of other people’s paradises. These are constructed with detailed pencil line work, which is delicate and almost web-like in its appearance, creating a fluidity to the work. This is then combined with luminous shades of acrylic paint to give an otherworldly quality and vibrance, offering the viewer an escapism into the worlds that she creates.
Last but not least, here is Senghye Yang‘s piece entitled ‘Extraordinary’. By taking a representation of ordinary subject matter (whether that be a hand-drawing or a photography). Combining this with a representation of something extraordinary. This juxtaposition of the ordinary to an imagined world, a random place, or a strange object creates something completely unique.
