Kay Ashton has had no formal art training to speak of and is mostly self-taught. Kay has always had a flair for drawing but never really took it up until 2011, when she enrolled in watercolour leisure classes when her young son was in primary school. Soon after, Kay progressed to oils as suggested by her watercolours tutor as he felt she would be more suited to it, He was not wrong.

George Damerum , a Pimlico based artist, has been producing detailed, figurative work for many years now. Growing up close by to Tate Britain, gave him an excellent opportunity to study many great works in detail. It would be true to say that several artists have influenced him. Artists like Willem Kalf and his still life works. Also the simple and honest paintings of the Pre Raphaelites. Taking the imitation of nature for their inspiration.

Greg Mason, South West Academician and SKY Arts Landscape Artist of the Year 2018 finalist  is an Honours Graduate of St Martin’s, London. His practice resonates with classic traditions of figurative art – focusing on portraiture, the female nude and landscape – retaining a modern approach that is both authentic to the subject matter and grounded in contemporary mark-making.

Nadia Day is an Impressionist landscape artist based in Teddington near Richmond. She paints views of nature, both local and further afield through seascapes and commissions.

George Damerum, Bowl Of Grapes, oil on board, £400

Francesco Jiménez’s work explores the intimate and personal ways of seeing the human form. He confronts parallel themes of isolation and attachment as a duality of the human condition. These works depict the effusive desire to capture the soul and the innocence of the human form through art. Full of feelings and ideas, textures and forms, these works reveal the essence of the human condition.

Gavin Roweth – My passion for sculpting developed from a series of limestone carving workshops held in Tout Quarry on the Isle of Portland in Dorset. I soon found carving in the round the most intense exercise in concentration, combining complete mental attention with the physical and technical requirements to achieve the finished design.

Victoria Coleman‘s  painting technique is all about the detail. She uses water based scenic artist’s paints and an air brush to capture the character and textures of her subjects.

Dawn Reader “I’ve been painting the sea for as long as I can remember.  What really inspires me is the way the light is reflected and refracted through and on water.  I love the light at dawn and dusk with the long rays of sunlight angled through the waves of leaves of a tree with the shortening or lengthening of shadows with time.”

 

Gavin Roweth, Ode to Stone I, 55cm h, 40cm diameter, fossil stone, at the gallery, £670
