Reg Eldridge

Reg Eldridge was born in 1919 and from 1937 to 1939 studied Portrait Painting and Life Drawing at the Clapham School of Art. During the war Eldridge was a member of teaching staff at the Royal Artillery School in Deepcut with the prominent British Sculptor Kenneth Armitage, who became a good friend and life drawing partner. Subsequently Eldridge studied at Chelsea under Vivian Pitchforth RA and at St Martins under Ruskin Spear RA and Derrick Greaves. Appropriately exhibiting with the eminent Royal Society of British Artists and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, Eldridge, was invited to exhibit with The Royal Society of Portrait Painters in the early 1970's and went on to successfully exhibit with them for a period of over twenty years. At 86 Eldridge's work is held in private collections worldwide, notably in the USA, Japan and South America.

Graham William Edden

The paintings of Graham William Edden are naturalistic and skilfully pay homage to the human form. In this, they are complete in themselves. But Edden's artistic perception metaphorically extends the beauty of the human subject by capturing the body in its actions: what it does and how it works. In '"An Affectionate Hug", he conveys the slight movement a breast makes when receiving a loving embrace. Another example can be observed in "I See You". Whilst the painting does the job of seeing the eye itself with utter conviction, it also reflects the pure, unadulterated gaze. As viewers, we are iintially seduced by the recognition of the outer appearance of humanity, only to ponder these 'moments' where the body speaks of itself.

Adam Edwards

South London based artist Adam Edwards paints enlarged faces using oils which reveal suppressed emotional states and traumas from images he finds in newspapers and magazines. “If I am a portrait painter, that’s incidental, I feel more like a conceptual artist working through the medium of portraiture, not attempting to create either an image of the sitter, or capture in any way their soul, but to produce an image of myself and solidify the ethereal moment between conception and execution of the piece”. His first solo show will open on June 18th 2009 at the Bear Free House's upstairs gallery, 296a Camberwell New Road, SE5.

Elizabeth Edwards

Elizabeth Edwards originally trained as a Fine Art Painter. Elizabeth’s obvious interest in the inner workings of the mind, how we express ourselves, both consciously and subconsciously specifically through the process of image making, fascinated her. Subsequently, Elizabeth went on to a postgraduate ship in Art Therapy and now combines the creation of her own work with the analysis and cognitive therapy of her clients.

Robert Eva

Robert Eva is a UK based artist specializing in acrylic on canvas. On visiting Eva’s online exhibition you will notice that his work displays a number of different genres and styles which naturally fall in to several groupings and collections of work. Exploring a particular subject of theme, he finds himself working on a set of paintings which are influenced by the last. “I don’t paint to a specific theme” he says, “I will create a series of paintings on one subject or theme, and then move on to something different as my inspiration takes me on my artistic journey.” As one collection leads him on to the next, Robert Eva creates a strong visual map of his artistic journey.
