Sue Blandford

"I am interested in poetic juxtapositions of objects, which are imbued with both their practical uses and their symbolic evocation ÖThe magic in the seemingly mundane." Says Sue Blandford, adding, ".I am concerned with paradoxes of light and dark, peace and unease. Also relationships between man made objects, or interventions, in natural situations." After successfully completing a degree from The Norwich School of Art and Design in 1991, Sue Blandford has exhibited across the UK and has participated in a number of Artist Residencies. Her work is in private collections across the UK.

David  Brassington

A recurrent device in David Brassington's work is the use of horizontal bands or blocks of colour that merge together to create a hazy boundary. Inspired by American Absract Expressionists particularly Richard Diebenkorn and Jasper Johns, the aim is to encourage the viewer to look both at and beyond the canvas surface - to create meditation pieces.

Kate Dawson

Kate Dawson draws from life. Spending a great deal of time making preparatory drawings within the life room setting, Kate then creates, using her drawings for anatomical and aesthetic reference, larger scale paintings. Her natural ease with line and her instinct for colour and form keeps each painting feeling fresh and spontaneous.

Catherine  Graham

Catherine Graham lives and works in the seaside town of Scarborough in North Yorkshire, England. Working in Acrylic on canvas, Catherine produces these wonderful abstract paintings inspired by her surrounding landscape. 'Through my work I explore the architecture of my surroundings. The canvas frame of reference allows me the ability to edit what I see into the horizontal and vertical. Therefore giving me the ability to idealise my surroundings through formalism. Interior spaces have cubic depth and play against the flatness of pattern through line. This play, also realised through colour and tone, provokes memory and association. I seek a universal language connected to spaces in which we have dreamed and imagined. Aspects of the interior are often metaphors for psychological processes.'

Christian Gyogi-Mann

The complex and intense process by which Christian Mann generates his canvases, raises an equally commanding and involving response from the viewer. Describing himself as, "a palimpsest in motion", Christian Mann's multi faceted canvases record events, observation, opinion and emotion, and pack a vivacious beat of figures and their elements in progressive conversation. Having only recently found the gumption to exhibit his work unaccompanied, Christian Mann's sensational, first solo exhibition in London took place in 2006. With a second exhibition and subsequent group shows already scheduled for 2007 we have no doubt that Christian will continue to be one of Londonart's most popular and celebrated artists.

Susan Hippe

Hippe’s sassy paintings demand a vibrant, contemporary space with a playful, mischievous owner to boot. They’re refreshingly energising, over flowing with jovial optimism.

Andy Insh

Attracted to both the beauty and the sadness of an inner city landscape, Andy Insh's paintings present us with an internal view of the city. The powerfully charged atmosphere of South London, usually so crowded with urban life and inner city turmoil is replaced with a sense of beauty, aloneness, silence, and solitude. It is here within the vacant depiction of empty spaces and silent streets that the power of his Andy Insh's paintings really lays. Insh was born in 1956 and from 1984 to 1988 studied at the Camberwell College of Art and subsequently Middlesex polytechnic, where he completed his Art Foundation and BA in Visual Arts. At the age of fifty Insh has already exhibited his work in over forty exhibitions in galleries across London, the UK and in Berlin where he has work in private collections.

Mike Janes

Mike's background in the Building Industry is of great influence to him as an artist. This current series of works, exhibited on LondonArt, directly examines and reflects the effects of manual labour on the building site and itís effect on the skin. Rather than using traditional painting methods and mediums, Mike chooses to compound the imagery, using the very same materials and skills associated with the trade.

Rachel Lumsden

The desire to visually investigate and examine a concept or subject matter is the driving force behind all of Rachel Lumsden's work. This resolute desire to explore a range of concepts to some extent governs the nature of her work, yet its character and aesthetic is driven by an intrinsic intuition and a dedication and passion for paint - which will always underpin and unite all of Lumsden's work, from one series to the next. Rachel studied her MA at The Royal Academy School of Arts, London in the late nineties. Since then she has been awarded numerous scholarships and has won a number of significant Art Prizes. Rachel has work in private collections across Europe and currently lives and works in Switzerland

Diego  Manuel

Diego Manuel is an Argentinean artist living and working in La Plata, Buenos Aires. Specialising in quick drying water-soluble paints, such as Gouache and Acrylic helps Diego to create a strong sense of movement and spontaneity within all his images. This together with his fervent use of colour combined with his often surreal imagery and slightly bizarre perspective produce a real sense of character and atmosphere.
