Gabriel Bodnariu

Gabriel's work is pointient in its commentation on society. His impressive manipulation of oil paints is fascinating. He creates complex views and combines them with surrealist-inspired compositions. Gabriel is definitely one ot watch out for as he produces more and more intoxicating masterpieces full of symbolism.

David Bottomley

Putting a distinctive stamp on the still life genre is a challenge but David Bottomley certainly pulls this off. How can one follow Van Gogh's "Sunflowers"? Bottomley paints them wilting in the full sun. As if personifying the weight of meanings laden upon them, mere things of beauty: flowers. It is this spirit of inquiry that suffuses his scenes. Hiis "Watermelon, Shell and Jugs" plays with the stripes common to each element in what could be a playful, knowing commentary or a respectful, show of gratitude to the interchangeability of all matter.

Cornelia Brand

The powerful combination of elements in Cornelia Brand's working life provides her with a didactic fusion of subject, content and emotion. As a police woman living and working in South Africa, Cornelia Brand's paintings are inspired by "… the changes that took place in South Africa and in my life, since democracy". Through her use of vibrant colour, Brand hopes to reflect the "multifaceted nation", where she lives. "My paintings are a reflection of my complex personality and adds meaning to my life and color to those of other" She says.

Brian Brooks

Brian Brooks has been exhibiting internationally since the 1970's with work held in private and public collections throughout Europe, the USA and Latin America. Brian has a natural talent for translating the visual world onto a two-dimensional picture plane. Utilising digital technology and computer software, his paintings use photography as a point of reference rather than a tool for direct imitation. His integral understanding of colour and perspective equals his command for pattern and repetition with an elegant and refined painting technique.

Jeanette Buckley

With inspiration coming from both urban and rural settings, Jeanette Buckley paints the world as it feels. As an endlessly inquisitive artist, she uses the cities and countryiside of her northern home to find colours and patterns to create interesting artworks. In some paintings she cretaes figurative abstractions that capture the bohemian atmosphere of bottle-littered Amsterdam bars. In others it is the icy trees and low lying sun of a winter's scene; days when the air feels tight against your skin. Often, she moves into complete abstraction, creating sunswept, intense vibes that glisten with inner warmth. By using the key figures of 20th Century art as a starting point, Buckley creates warm and affecting works that would grace any room.

His landscapes, street scenes, charcoal drawings and still life reveal a different sensibility; a careful observationist and chronicler of life as he sees it.

Horacio Cardozo

Horacio Cardozo's desire to understand the inherent relationship between human nature, the universal order, and the underlying reality, leads him to create images that attempt to explain that which defies reason. Cardozo was born in Argentina, where he studied Architecture and Design at Buenos Aires University and Philosophy at Del Salvador University. In 1987 his drawing skills and admiration for fine arts, especially those of the Renaissance period, led him to explore a career in painting. Horacio is currently living in Auckland, New Zealand where he works as a Graphic Artist and continues to develop his artistic career.

Lynne Cartlidge

The still lives of Lynne Cartlidge are some of the most subtle you will ever see, undoubtedly. Suffused with light and barely there, her compositions are understated but incredibly engaging. It is fitting that one of her compositions is entitled "Tulips with gauze curtains" for in fact, her domestic tableaux seem to be somehow veiled by light itself, making the subjects more distant and piquant. Embracing a largely cool palette, even the hot, bright accents she uses at times are presented in saturated colours, including red poppies, which is no mean feat! Her palette is unusual and perhaps influenced by the Cornish painters, whose work reflected the bright light of the region.
