Gillian Richards New Paintings

GILLIAN RICHARDS LANDSCAPE ABSTRACTIONS JANUARY 14 - FEBRUARY 4, 2023 Gillian Richards was the first artist we featured in our Artist Spotlight Series which began in 2020.  We catch up with Gillian in her studio to talk about new developments in her urban landscape paintings.

Artist Spotlight | Randall Steeves

Encaustic, or molten beeswax mixed with pigment, is Steeves’ medium of choice. The physicality of the encaustic medium is reinforced in the form of large renderings of fingerprints layered over the canvas surface.

RUBEENA RATCLIFFE ABSTRACT PAINTINGS

Why does someone become an artist? It's a big question that can yield seemingly inconsequential answers. Sometimes, it all comes down to a childhood chance encounter — stumbling across a comic strip, attending an art exhibition for the first time or an emergency trip to the hospital. I asked Rubeena Ratcliffe to tell me about the early art memories that inspired her desire to create and set her on her career path. [...]

CARRIE WALKER

Carrie Walker's art practice explores the fraught relationship between humans and non-human animals by looking at how humans write about, photograph and paint non-human animals. She uses original drawing, photography and video, as well as found and appropriated materials such as text, paintings and photographs. Humour and playfulness are a vital part of her work.
