Introducing new artist Emma GibbonsEmma Gibbons combines paint, ink, glazes, glitter and mixed media to produce curious & joyful pieces of art from her studio on the North Devon Coast.
Born into a family of Cornish pirates and smugglers, her passion for treasures & adventures was engrained from an early age. True to her pirate roots, Emma has travelled extensively through Europe, Asia and South America, bringing vibrant colour to her work along with themes of discovery & exploration. Admitting to “being in love with colour” she views each of her artworks as “a little adventure – something for you to explore”.
5 years studying art & illustration in London proved a productive time for Emma – producing mixed media artwork, children’s books, theatre sets, costumes and miniature sculptures, whilst studying at the highly acclaimed institutions; Goldsmiths University, London Guildhall, Camberwell College of Art. There she exhibited at the ICA, the Oxo Tower, produced illustrations for the Sherlock Holmes museum, was published in Time Out Magazine & gained an MA.

Christmas ExhibitionWhat an amazing Christmas Exhibition - thank you to everyone who came in throughout the end of November and December, we were constantly rehanging the walls as so many pieces sold! We met so many new faces, and reconnected with a large number of existing clients. We can't wait to continue into 2019.
Myung Nam An at CONTEXT MiamiSuch a fantastic show at CONTEXT Miami in the beginning of December. Myung Nam An's ceramics totally sold out!
The next fair we will be exhibiting her works will be 'Collect' at the Saatchi Gallery on the Kings Road in London from 28th February - 3rd March; we hope to see you there!
Paul Kessling focusRunning from 27th October - 15th November 2018, Paul Kessling will be taking over our downstairs wall-space for his focus!
Paul Kessling is a British painter born in Dundee, Scotland, in 1965. He trained as a sculptor at Wimbledon School of Art and then at MA level at the Royal College of Art. At the latter institution, Paul worked with Sir Eduardo Paolozzi.
He is a modern painter forming paintings with the same sculptural discipline required of the three dimensional form, but in a two dimensional space. Kessling uses his own distinctive painterly structures, stacks of stripes or fields of moving paint, to generate a distillation of the well-observed – a rewriting or new translation in paint.

Myung Nam An's Eye Series CeramicsMyung Nam An's ceramics have been extremely popular with clients who have seen and experienced her works - they are very tactile, with many having commented how one just doesn’t get a true impression of her works through an image. We wanted to really show off her Eye Series to everyone, so have created a video showing the texture, depth and variety of her works. We hope you enjoy!

Anna Masters' new body of work, Mortal EnginesAnna Masters is well known for her wall pieces, incorporating recycled watch & clock parts, butterflies and rose petals, strung on nylon wire. Her latest body of works sees her medium of watch & clock parts now encased within vintage clock cases: 'Mortal Engines'.
This is another way in which Anna plays on the concept of time; watch parts, the very mechanics of time, are suspended motionless apart from their counterparts, whilst time progresses regardless.

Introducing new artist Tony BlackmoreTony Blackmore is a British artist, graduating from both Kingston University (1993) and the University of the Arts London (2013). Blackmore one of six students from across UAL's MA programmes to be awarded a residency at Tokyo Arts and Space. His time spent in Japan continues to influence the art he makes today.
Since graduating, Tony’s work has focused on his ‘Paperfolds’, a body of wall-based reliefs each created from a single sheet of polyester film, a film traditionally used by architects. Tony places the polyester film over the pattern scoring deep lines on both sides. Each line is then meticulously hand-folded before the film is pushed and nurtured into its final form.
‘I enjoy the discipline that’s required in the making of each folded surface. I find the creative process akin to a form of meditation and I can be totally absorbed for hours at a time. There is always an element of surprise that I find hugely rewarding when a final relief form emerges. Each form essentially combines my personal expression and making with the logical rationale of geometry’.

Peter Monaghan videos & side angle imagesAs many of you will know, part of the beauty and interest of Peter Monaghan’s work is viewing each piece from different angles, seeing how both colour and shape change. Viewing just one static image really doesn’t do the work justice; we’ve added videos to the images online so you can more appreciate the works as the camera moves around the artwork.

Up close with Mat Kemp
From a distance it is very easy to dismiss the visual complexity of Mat Kemp’s Take Me To The River (Thames). Using recycled materials Mat encapsulates life, movement and colour in his playful pieces, inhabited by little figures who, with their poses, call out for our attention.
Watch the video to take a closer look at Mat’s artwork, or click here to view his available pieces.

Introducing new artist Alea Pinar du PreThis month we have welcomed to our gallery the vibrant works of the Austrian-Turkish artist Alea Pinar Du Pre.
In 2008 Alea developed her own mixed media technique, which combines digital art with the original use of objects from everyday life. Her technique grants her artworks, and in particular her female portraits, vibrance and an interesting textural effect.
In her portraits, Alea manages to capture the very core of her subjects. While the personality of each subject as it is conveyed by her works might be variable, what stays constant in Alea’s work is the sense of female pride and acceptance expressed by each of her figures.
Alea’s art has been successfully exhibited in art gallery all over the world, including Istanbul, Dubai, New York, Miami, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Vienna and The UK since 2008.
