 Hkosmoh

The work of Hkosmoh is a journey into the imagination: satisfying and surprising jaunts into realms of colour and pattern leap out at the eye. Working in acrylic on canvas, there is a mosaic-like quality to her designs which conjure up Italian frescoes, especially in the case of the iconic "Maria". There is also perhaps a reference to Italian Futurism in the definite repetition of motifs as in "Bank-ing Messenger"s and" Hoto". In fact, the allusions also take one into the realms of ancient Egyptian, as one can find disitnct kohl-rimmed eyes and goddesses, but also others from a variety of mythologies. Decorative gold outlined forms in the vein of Hundertwasser take their place in the array of embellishments so beloved by this unique artist.

Anthea Holmes

After receiving a Distinction for her MA in Fine Art Painting, Anthea Holmes has become an accomplished professional artist. Born in the UK, Anthea attended the Camberwell College of Arts and later studied at Kingston, before being awarded a place at the celebrated Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. Working in a traditional style, Anthea often builds up the ground by using Gesso, collaged paper and scrim. Then using oil paint she builds upon the surface quality, adding, rubbing and wiping until the texture and image become integrated and inseparable. "In all my work I'm trying to create a sense of harmony, unity, wholeness and luminosity." Holmes has exhibited in the UK and the USA and has works in private collections alike.

Helen Hopkins

Helen is a practised artist having studied under professional artists at classes over the last seven years. Her speciality is using colourful heavy body acrylics on a large scale: not something every artist can manage. Her style of chunky brushstrokes is daring and carried out with great zeal. On the other hand, Helen appears to be equally versatile whichever media she adopts including watercolours. So whether it is audacious, gestural, thick paint you enjoy or bright gutsy watercolours, then Helen's style will certainly accommodate both tastes.

Melanie Housden

Housden’s beautiful, delicate paintings echo a sense of aloneness. The fragility and tenderness of Housden’s new work ‘fallen Angel’ demonstrates a rare, sensitivity found in great paintings. We look forward to seeing more of this new work.

Andy  Housham

Fascinated by popular culture, Andy Housham is one of a growing number of contemporary artists who aim to create contemporary Pop Art for the 21st Century. Specializing in acrylic and collage on canvas, his work is particularly inspired by television and the Punk culture which originated in the 70's. Each painted collage uses articles and pictures which relate in some way to the subject matter they are portraying. In the works entitled, Sid Vicious and Kurt Cobain, Andy hopes to portray the exploitation of the stars in the music industry, particularly how an individual can appear to become a product and buckle under the pressure of constant media scrutiny and adverse publicity.

Greg Howard

Simply put, Greg is a genius watercolourist! The phenomenal variety of light and weather conditions he elicits from this delicate medium is quite something. Whether it be calling attention to the last fading light of day as the final rays of sun bathe a rural scene with a warm glow, or the first snow in the mountains, Greg has been there, seen it and preserved it for those of us not so fortunate to live amongst that kind of beauty. By leaving some areas less closely defined, Greg allows a viewer scope to recreate each composition in their own imagination.
