Victoria Ascanio

Victoria Ascanio is a Spanish artist who studied at the Ruskin College of Art in Oxford. She produces images of bathers: a traditional choice of subject matter since Titian, Michelangelo & Rembrandt. This subject was taken up again by Modern artists such as Seurat, Cezanne, Picasso & Matisse in order to develop stylistic innovations and express new attitudes toward the portrayal of the human form. Ascanio continues this innovation and is one of our few artists who explores the printmaking process known as collagraphy. This technique involves gluing a variety of textured materials to a cardboard or metal base before putting through the printing press, ensuring that an element of chance is included as well as the skilful manipulation of materials.

Understanding of it is mean to reach a real happiness..." Nazik Aslanyan.

Filipe Assuncao

These confident oil paintings, with their rounded, textured forms call forth comparisons with Dubuffet, Guston even Picasso. Their comic-like cartoonish style endows the work with a charming simplicity yet it is clear that the artist knows exactly what he is doing. The animal/human forms are softly modulated with tonal gradations that simultaneously give them a monumental feel, as if seen at extremely close range. At times, the forms the thick outlines describe become transparent, serving to further the visual play between solid weight and a comic lightness.
