I work in fabric and on paper, using a range of techniques and in a variety of sizes. Different types of printmaking, photography and processes using new media have featured in recent pieces. I trained as a fine artist in Canada and the UK and my work reflects these conventions by interpreting them in cloth. Travel and memory combine to influence my choice of subject matter. In 2010, I continue to collaborate with other artists and a writer and am exhibiting in the UK and abroad.
I graduated with a B.A (Hons) in fine art printmaking from the University of Brighton then studied further on a masters degree at Wimbledon School of Art.
I now work as a professional practising artist and am a member of
several London groups including United Artists and the Printmakers council.
My recent work has been investigating the relationship of inside and outside space, encompassing the experience of a place that is both physically and visually engaging, through structures found within plants, landscape and architecture.
Printmaking becomes a continuation from the process of drawing.
Looking and describing using the images to explore the dynamics of translating from one medium into woodcut and other printmaking techniques.
The initial aim is for the prints to have a sense of scale, drama and depict a heightened reality.
Paul is a self-taught painter who studied and worked as a designer before committing to painting full-time. Based at Wimbledon Art Studios in Earlsfield, South West London, Paul works from his own photography acquired whilst soaking up the culture and colour of city life. Painted very rapidly with vigorous strokes of oil paint and vivid colour, his work is characterised by unusual angles and ruthless cropping – the overall effect being that of a seductive, cinematic urgency.
Paul’s subject matter is inspired in part by the work of photographer William Eggleston and his ‘snap-shot aesthetic’. As such there is a distinctive voyeuristic impression in Paul’s work, reflecting, perhaps, contemporary obsessions with the hidden camera; his energetic painting technique embodies the sense of spontaneity and vibrancy of the scenarios depicted. “What interests me most,” he asserts, “is conveying atmosphere and mood rather than individual people or locations. I want the viewer to feel immersed in my paintings, to feel a sense of physical presence and to be left to imagine their own characters and narratives in what they’re seeing.”
Puckered and pinched, twisted and teased. Techniques taken from the gentle arts of origami and embroidery are applied to industrial materials such as roofing felt. Strange textures and complex shapes emerge resolving the startling paradox of form and material.
Ambiguous forms reminiscent of organic growth evolve into intriguing sculpture which exert their presence on the surroundings and invite a second look.

Since April 2008, Eastbourne landscape painter Julian Sutherland-Beatson has been producing a ‘daily painting’ of the Sussex countryside and coastline.
Having trained in printmaking and graphic design at Eastbourne Art College under Robert Tavener, Julian’s experience of working as a graphic designer for many years informs his current work.
“I enjoy the discipline of working for a specific time each day and letting my intuition, training and experience ‘kick in’. I’ve lived and worked in Sussex for over 25 years and it’s a treat to engage with the landscape and coastline on a daily basis”
In 2004 Julian had 2 paintings (Eastbourne Pier and De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill) purchased for the permanent collection at The House of Lords.
This was in response to a request for work in the style of 1930s travel posters to complement an original collection. He continued this project with a further 12 in similar style.
He also has work in private collections in this country and throughout the world.
Richard is a contemporary photographic artist, located in Brighton. Born in Basingstoke in 1974, he received a first class BA honours degree in photography at the University of Brighton in June 2006.
The work in this exhibition called Textures of Time looks at the exposed surfaces created through mineral extraction in various quarries in Sussex. Paying particular attention to the geology, archaeology and history of each site.
Richard has exhibited throughout the South East of England and in London and is also working for the Photographers Gallery on the Colliers Green Focus project, teaching Key stage 3 children to explore their environment through photography.
As a metal sculptor I enjoy creating work that has a strong emphasis on visual and textural aesthetics. The materials I use are robust, long lasting, and extremely low maintanance once finished.
Visual accessability is important in my work because I want people to interact with my pieces, either in observation, or through tactile investigation.
My intention is that people easily engage with my sculpture on an emotive level, which encompasses humour, endeerment, awe, and occasionally fear. I aspire to bring inanimate and found objects to life and give them characters, and emotions of their own.
