    Peter Cábocky

    painting

    I'd like to think that my work denounces craft, finish, precision, virtuosity and even ambition. I take a rather more imaginative and playful approach to the medium of oil painting, that is considered to be old fashioned. My constant questioning of how much work really is needed to make an artwork, is something I thrive on. My aim is to observe and question things with intensity but to leave them unresolved, without conclusion, to avoid being predictable and going down well known paths. This materialises in the constant revisions within the picture, re-painting the layers and layers of the previous compositions which finally gives my paintings a subtle vibrating energy.

    painting

    Our urban and geographic environment is in a constant state of transformation. My work explores states of change between order and chaos that relate to this experience of environmental shift.

    My paintings explore ideas of Fold, Gesture and Movement. These states can remain calm or reconfigure coherence in the painting. I am interested in the connection between a fold as it relates to architecture or geography and gesture as it relates to aspects of drawing and language and 20th century painting. This series struggles to define beauty, exploring abstraction as incident and artifact of the process in which paint is applied, exposing interior and exterior spaces that may not coexist. There is a constant struggle between surface and ground; between paint and the boundaries within the painting.

    Ben Fenton

    painting

    Ben originally comes from Dungeness in Kent and spent time living in Greatstone, Rye and Winchelsea Beach whilst growing up before moving to London where he attended Goldsmiths College. With the majority of his childhood spent by the Kent and Sussex coastline, and being the son of a local fisherman, he developed a deep love of the sea, and the coast that meets it. His aim with his paintings is to convey the empty, bleak beauty of these areas and their oddly angular shingle shapes against the expanse of sea and sky.

    Goia Mujalli

    painting

    My work operates through things, situations and states that enter the paintings and run their course. Does the act produce the meaning? There is an interest in additive and subtractive actions. Through exploring texture, and the use of layering I open up ambiguous spaces. Repetition of continuous rhythmic motifs creates an essence of a pre-existing thing, which makes the paintings partially representational. All paintings are marked with erasures, moments of presence and precision. I explore the difference of mark making resembling a print aspect. There is a friction of erased marks and layered marks on the surface containing erasures, traces and stains. There is an abstraction in my paintings that comes from this investigation and experimentation with paint and deconstruction of an image. I search for a diverse variation between each painting while maintaining the exploration of mark making.

    painting

    These works chronicle a recent month abroad in Italy and were created on site throughout my travels. During the trip, painting became a means to process the experience of a new place, culture, and environment. A way to understand the congested narrow roads in Venice, the crowded vaporetto rides, the chaos of the Santa Maria Novella train station in Florence, the quiet campos where locals sit and read newspapers, the graffiti around a door lock. Using abstract language, the works delve into the feelings of uneasiness, melancholy, joy, and explore the phenomena of present experience becoming intertwined with memory and the past.

    Ernest Volynec

    painting

    Through the use of colors, different styles and philosophy, I try show that the future is a chain of choices made today. I want to believe that one day greed, anger and a never-ending cycle of wars will be replaced with peace and love. This is my utopia.

    Armando Cabba

    painting

    Over the previous 2 years I've been exploring the idea of identity and the temporary self through self portraits. Each painting is a recording of one's state of mind thus depicting a persona. Emotions can reoccur but how we experience them can never be duplicated. I think it's important in the world of social media to explore moments where we aren't depicting ourselves in a positive light. These times are what make us human.

    Ferris Mcguinty

    painting

    My work is an ongoing investigation into the notions of form, line, balance and colour. There is rarely a specific reference point, although the works do borrow from a wide lexicon of visual culture.

    The work hopefully resonates through a language that is common across the spectrum of architecture, painting, sculpture and design.

    I think that paring back to the basic principles serves to condense elements of these varying influences. What the work reflects through these connections isn't a conscious reference, it's more a symbiosis.

    Engaged in a similar form to Haiku poetry, seemingly disparate elements in the work are cut and juxtaposed , as if compressing a wider experience, emphasising simplicity, intensity, and directness of expression.

    painting

    'Modular Paintings' are parts which Loes puts together in various combinations, cropping them or using the complete form.

    The use of copper and gold paint in her work makes the paintings vived and gives light its own dimension.

    One of these series contains 16 parts that can either be shown together or in various smaller groups.

    She is fascinated by the human longing for economic grow and their movement from the countryside to megacities worldwide, the tipping points in their lives and the happiness and disillusions that are getting side by side with these changes.

    Roberto Grosso

    painting

    My digital art takes its inspiration from music and is produced in metal, metallic paper or perspex. One of the key elements of my art is the vibrant use of colours and the use of augmented reality, which helps bring the artwork to life by showing the stages of its creation with a soundtrack of the music that inspired it.

    Sarah Teasdale

    painting

    Teasdale’s work comes from a wide range of influences, including geometry and technology. Her recent work reflects a longstanding fascination with pattern and textile design. She focuses on patterns derived from both the natural and digital worlds and tries to highlight the order and beauty found within them. Patterns have an underlying mathematical structure and can be seen as a search for regularities. When we recognize these arrangements we have an emotional reaction that is deeply rooted in our instincts and development. Sarah also believes in color psychology in relation to people’s emotions and temperament. She focuses on using colors that I believe have positive effects and strives to create works that is aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

    Sarah has built this series of paintings from acrylic and in some cases spray paint on board with the occasionally addition of mica flake and/or iridescent pigments for additional shine and texture. The overall aesthetic of these colorful, pattern-based paintings is a blend of digital, modern, and ancient, and they have been compared to both video games and intricately patterned textiles.

    painting

    Everything changes around us over the years as we do.. moments of reconsideration and learning points. Over the years I hope that people learn that it’s of no importance how you look, where you are from or what you do for a living. The only thing of importance (from my own perspective) is truthfulness to yourself, and being able to give and share in life and being surrounded by the people that you want to be surrounded by.

    So a mix of old and new, figures with a certain emotional load and will tell a colorful beautiful new insight. That’s what I’m trying to achieve with these series.

    Daniel Fleming

    painting

    My work is archetypal: visually abstract but conceptually specific. I use symbols and associations of symbols that constitute a theme or narrative. Exploration of materials and ideas is a large part of my creative process, and I do not limit myself by tradition or habit.

    My work is an extension of modernism with emphases upon new symbols used in new ways and with materials of myriad kind.The result is powerful: powerful form, color, style, content and a richness of material that, together, fuse the many currents – techniques, styles, materials – of modernism in the work.
