Matthew Robinson

Acrylic on canvas

122 x 127 cm

Unframed

(Ships from the US)

£1,300.00
Original piece of art

Matthew Robinson’s painting documents the relational spirituality existing between architecture and the human experience. We can see references to the vernacular architecture of small cities and suburbs altered by the mid-to-late-century ideals.   Fragments of structures,   imagined or representational, are depicted simultaneously in a singular composition. Therefore, the ugly construction materials become part of a beautiful whole. The work is also a product of the artist’s own renovation efforts in his 1840’s home in Beacon.

Manuel Bisson

Acrylic on canvas

50.8 x 61 cm

Unframed

(Ships from Canada)

£870.00
Original piece of art

Manuel Bisson’s work act as an interface between the real and the improbable. While the references to organic forms curl around the canvas, the juxtaposition between abstract and organic opens up an ambiguous discussion. For Bisson a drawing always remains a landscape. The hovering shapes work as codified schematics evoking nature yet not directly depicting it. The symmetry of the painting is slightly disturbed by the shell-like shape in the middle. The simple colour pallet allows us to orient ourselves in this strange scape.

Lydia Baker

Monotype on masa paper

39.4 x 53.3 cm 

Unframed

(ships from the US) 

£500.00
Original piece of art

Lydia Baker offers us positive escapism, letting us savour moments of discovery of a new fantasy world, which explores the ideas of the sanctuary, harmony, and the unknown. The intimacy of her work originates from a precise balance of connection and detachment. The delicate pink and blue lines suggest the outlines of the world, but the rest is up to our imagination. The composition vibrates with freedom: not only by working with unfilled spaces, but also by adding the female figures charmingly stretching through the scene embodying utter bodily freedom. Baker submerges us into this world full of hope and excitement and makes us momentarily forget the harsh reality around us, which has more than gentle pink and blue lines.

Jingyi Wang

Oil on canvas

106.7 x 89 cm 

Unframed 

(Ships from the US)

£3,100.00
Original piece of art

Jingyi Wang combines realistic art with imaginative conceptual painting. Her works often connect nature to the artificial world. Her recurring motif became cacti, which she uses to represent various creatures in nature. In his work, the spiky balloons and unicorn horns present a tactile contrast, especially when compared to the smoothness of the sand and the fluffiness of the clouds. The dream-like surrealistic qualities invite us to a serene celebration of the power of imagination.

Heather McLeod

Oil on panel

50.8 x 40.6 cm 

Unframed 

(Ships from the US)

£880.00
Original piece of art

Heather McLeod wittily navigates the gap between our appearance and inner self. She plays with symbolism and concealment to enhance the narrative and evoke a quiet yet humorous side to portraiture. By concealing the face, and we must find meaning in the symbolism of what we are permitted to see. Objects selected to represents a person can enhance the narrative of the figure we cannot see and welcome a range of interpretations. Does 'Friends' display a single withered flower in a glass as a reminder of ephemeral friendships? Or is it a reminder of former youth? Or perhaps it invites us to find beauty in the most unexpected places? The elusiveness that results in parallels the intangible nature of our own identity and, ultimately, reality.

Eve Saint Jean

Acrylics, oil on canvas

61 x 76.2 cm 

Unframed

(Ships from Canada) 

£1,450.00
Original piece of art

Eve Saint Jean’s painting explores the complexity of human existence and communication. In her own words: ‘We are witnessing an era that is increasingly emotionally oriented, and which paradoxically has never been so much about anxiety, egocentricity, individualism, loneliness, hypersexualization, or over-consumption.’ Her work investigates the various verbal language which humans have invented to express and share their emotions. Her visual installations juxtapose figuration and abstraction to decode the dialogue between digital and material, thoughtful and spontaneous.

(Ships from the UK) 

£380.00
Original piece of art

Cherilyn Yeates (Chez) paints vibrant, mystical portals. She navigates the psychedelic world through balanced precision, symmetry, and vivid colours. The work's tactility resembles ancient relics - like small symbols of worship dug up from a psychedelic ruin. Chez believes that our happiness can be directly influenced by the spaces and objects surrounding us. Her work evokes the sense of childlike fantasy that we all crave.

Arjen

Oil on canvas

Unframed

£3,200.00

Arjen keeps his painting simple, yet its strange deconstruction gives it expressive tension. Balanced deformations of the things and beings we encounter in our daily lives catch our attention because they deviate from what we are used to seeing. While our minds try to make sense of the strange forms, we are continually fascinated. Arjen’s painting works with the intersection of the simple and the absurd. The result is an expressive and slightly humorous figure.

Alexia McKindsey

Oil on canvas

76.2 x 101.6 x 5

Unframed

(Ships from Canada) 

£1,400.00
Original piece of art

Alexia McKindsey's work reflects on how our homes affect collective identities and mythologies spanning the generations of a family. The progression of time is embodied in collaged fragments, which reflect on the legacy of past generations. The layers offer a cure for our curiosity, inviting us into peaceful scenes, which are all connected by the theme of food. Due to the nonlinear representations of memory, space, and experience, we can fully appreciate the strong familial narrative behind this work.

Michelle Weddle

Acrylic on canvas

82.3 x 61 cm

Unframed 

(Ships from the US)

£1,350.00
Original piece of art

Michelle Weddle’s work offers a fresh perspective on abstraction. The forms and colours express emotions and movements while referencing digital art, landscape, abstract expressionism, and the Bauhaus art movement. The spontaneously curved lines slither across blocked planes of colour. Weddle works with underpainting, which gives the final layered works a textural quality. All of these elements combine in the finished work setting up multiple tensions between the spontaneous and the intentional, the gestural and the static, the flat and dimensional, and between digital references and the nature of the artist’s hand.

Navot Miller

Oil on canvas

160 x 200 cm 

Unframed 

(Ships from Germany)

£7,400.00
Original piece of art

Navot Miller is an Israeli artist whose work primarily explores intimate interactions and the queer aspects of ordinary encounters. Miller alleviates this ordinariness by cloaking it in the most vivid of colours and playing with multi-layered symmetry. The depth of the painting stems from the juxtaposition of coloured planes (table, walls, ground) and precise lines (ceiling, trees, poster). Moreover, the contrasting shapes and colours help to accentuate the figure leaning against a wall. Through this playful visual language, Miller can tackle more sensitive topics, such as religion and sexuality.

Orange you Glad

Rachel Morrissey

Acrylic paint and coloured pencil on paper

45.7 x 61 cm 

Unframed 

(Ships from the US) 

£500.00
Original piece of art

Rachel Morrissey’s narrative painting gives form to an invisible struggle with her own mental health, motherhood, fertility, pregnancy, and daily life. While the green plants become a romantic association of motherhood and fruitfulness, the orange vines represent the tension of her ongoing battle with anxiety. Through the power of complementary colours, she establishes a sense of conflict, which has not yet been resolved. Nevertheless, it also demonstrates her robust willingness to persist and fight. The title ‘Orange you Glad’ might show that only by overcoming obstacles can we truly appreciate our triumphs in life.
