Eleanor Frances

Eleanor Frances is a self-taught English artist presently living and working in London. Time spent in India and Asia in her early twenties proved to be a hugely influential time for Frances. “India unlocked the need to be free from old teachings and embrace a deeper insight into who we are and why we are.” She says. “My paintings are expressive pieces often reflecting the darker side to urban living; the extremes of emotion, detailed and precise, in total control of my brush, no strokes are left to chance.” This latest collection of works were inspired by a recent period of time spent living in Barcelona and Paris. Clearly iinfluenced by strong vibrant colour, she is currently working on a collection of abstracted works which focus on colour, shape and texture.

Steve Fraser

There is an intriguing blend of abstraction and figuration in the beguiling work of Steve Fraser, whose images are uniquely Scottish and of the borders. His work is imaginatively imbued with diverse narratives as he combines the depiction of flora, fauna and human figures with ancient mythological tales. The breadth of his vision is quite fascinating and makes a viewer want to know more...!

james freiberg

These luscious close-up portraits confer a kind of rococo coquettishness on their subjects. With a method of paint application that is playful, louche and uncompromising, these artworks mark James Freiberg out as a painter with a distinctive, immediately recognisable style. Somehow historicizing the sitters in spite of his contemporary approach to paint, James is able to cleverly conjure up different moments from the canon of painting in the viewer's memory. The work takes us on a journey from Arcimboldo's juicy fruit and veg ensembles to Auerbach's frenzied brushwork, albeit with a gentler feel.

Olga Gal

Originally trained as a ceramicist, Olga now translates those 3 dimensional skills on to a 2 dimensional plane. Strong and powerful imagery is combined with equally fervent washes of deep earthy colours, often juxtaposing figurative imagery with bold yet soft blocks of colour. Using an essentially geometric structure she produces some well balanced and well executed paintings.
