Chris Kendrick

Chris Kendrick is a still life painter working in Oils. "What intrigues me about still life is that it's essentially about an implied human presence. The way objects can create a narrative value beyond their individual worth simply by their relationships to each other in the same space. They can even suggest a sense of time and place without anything being directly stated".

Justine Kerr

Justine Kerr is originally from Edinburgh, Scotland and now lives in Canada. While studying her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Dundee University, she spent two semesters at NSCAD University, Nova Scotia, Canada. This experience proved to be life changing. Here she finds her true calling for stone carving , and her future husband to boot. “I am interested in the dichotomies within myself...exploring these visually in my work; the contrast of textures within stone evokes a warming in my heart……polished stone, the blazing beauty of the intricacies of hidden colours interfaced with contrasting rough markings made by my tools. This is conveyed well in my stone carvings, ‘Imminent’ and ‘Inextricably Bound’, she says. In 2006 and 2008, The Nova Scotia Art Bank purchased Justine Kerr’s art work for their collection and she was recently been awarded a creation grant from the Nova Scotia Arts Council.

Saba  Khan

Recently making a splash in Modern Painters and Aesthetica magazines, Saba Khan's contemporary oil and mixed-media paintings and drawings explore moments in what she describes as "our random, surreal emotional, spiritual, sensual and geopolitical lives". For her, making art is about simultaneously engaging in mind, body, spirit and physical spaces where seen and unseen worlds intermingle and fluctuate. "Concerned about a shiny, artificial, branded geopolitical world where the majority do not benefit, I eventually face an image that is both fragmenting and optimistic, like the beginning of something new yet familiar that had always existed, but was not previously noticed. I work on the principle of the ‘death of the author’, once a work is made, what I have experienced and expressed is dead and the onlooker interacts with a blank canvas where a new world ebbs and flows’.

Rusudan Khizanishvili (gobejishvili )

Rusudan Khizanishvili is a young contemporary artist working in Tbilisi, the Georgian capital. With influences drawn from great artists such as Gauguin and Cezanne, Khizanishvili's work visibly acknowledges the history of painting and the paintings of the great masters. Her confident use of colour, combined with a palpable and often sensuous handling of oil paint demonstrates a maturity beyond her twenty seven years. Rusudan's approach to both the handling of paint and compositional construction reflects a healthy knowledge of what has come before her, while at the same time clearly display a contemporary set of values and codes of practice. Graduating with a painting degree from the Tbilisi state Academy of Art, Rusudan went on to complete an MA in Media in 2005.

Helen Kholin

Helen Kholin produces powerful, intense artworks with a great energy. Her titles encapsulate the inspiration or narratives, which emerge out of her heroic tussle with paint. In each work, one may detect the visual shapes or effects that embody her ideas and emotions; passages of light, interlocking geometric forms or swirling curlicues of fancy. Her paintings speak confidently about life in a language we can all understand.

ROBERT  KILSHAW

There is a sensitive handling of paint and unusual use of colour in the work of Robert Kilshaw. The paintings have strong graphic elements and most have a strong reliance on pattern. Works such as "Balancing the Sun" directly work with Japanese symbolism and this continues in the pensive figure in "Changing Times". There seems to be a Gauguin-like fascination for the interior world of the female, often seemingly Japanese figure. He obviously has excellent draughtsmanship and this is combined with a delicate scumbled use of oil paint where colour is something almost unassuming and tentative. It is almost as if he does not wish to intrude upon the space of the female under his watchful, caring eye.

Iryna Kitayeva

In this work an image of a bird is wonderfully reduced to its most simple base parts and shown as an expression of the creature. Set against a deep red background, the squares and forms make up the image of the bird without seeking to represent it naturalistically. Her handling of a sunset uses the same technique to great effect, showing the component parts of light and shadow playing against a distant horizon. Her formal pieces show that she can paint the human form with a technically talented hand and am imaginative style. Her work is unique and graceful and would make a welcome addiction to any collector’s home.
