Gwen Hardie’s work is about light, shadow, colour and the act of perception.
She uses oil paint to blend infinitely nuanced tonal and colour gradations between background and foreground, as if under a magnifying glass. Each painting presents a mesmeric colourfield that appears to radiate - expanding outwards - receding inwards, creating an illusion of varying depths of field.
Born in Scotland, Hardie lived and worked in London and Berlin before settling in New York City in 2000. Her work is held several public collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the British Council, the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh.

Greg Wood's artwork has been described as conveying sensations of loss, longing and transcendence. He uses oil on a variety of surfaces to portray real places from his memories and experiences. Since the mid-nineties, Greg has been applying this visceral approach to peaceful moments of contemplation in vast, empty landscapes.
In his own words, Greg says he is drawn to the often overlooked places in between destinations; particularly when they are being exposed to the elements in a dramatic way.
Having been brought up in a family of artists, Greg has always held a deep-seeded passion for landscape painting. This passion has taken him to places like Tasmania, Vietnam, Japan and most recently, Brussels.
A keen observer of her environment, French-British artist Sophie Kitching creates installations, paintings and sculptures that offer condensed versions of natural phenomena. Reacting to specific places, found materials, colours and forms, she translates their affective properties into new states, either on canvas or in three-dimensional space. A graduate from the Ecole National Superieure des Arts Decoratifs Paris (2014) Kitching was awarded an international grant to study at the School of Visual Arts, New York. Sophie has exhibited internationally with solo and group shows in Paris, New York, Marseille, Arles, Switzerland and most recently Copenhagen.
