SOPHIE KITCHING

A keen observer of her environment, French-British artist Sophie Kitching (b.1990) creates installations, paintings and sculptures that offer condensed versions of natural phenomena.

 

Kitching reacts to specific places, found materials, colours and forms, translating 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 in 2012. Kitching has exhibited internationally with solo and group shows in Paris, New York, Marseille, Arles, Switzerland and most recently Copenhagen.

JENNY LUNDGREN

In my paintings I always move between figuration and abstraction, I need the limits of the figuration to build my paintings around, but I also need the freedom of abstraction which allows me to act and react more intuitively. These paintings are a kind of semi-abstract portraits, dealing more with emotions and moods than with actual people or objects. I am not at all interested in details when I paint; I work with big gestures, I try to be fearless, I reduce and distill. I strive to find a form for each painting that is at the same time simple but also powerful, to find some kind of essence. My painting process is quite physical and as I paint I move the canvas between wall and floor, over and over again. These changes of perspective and working position helps me not to get stuck in some idea, but to find and see other, new possibilities for each and every painting.’ – Jenny Lundgren.

For Nikomachi notions like light, movement, silence consist the main inspiration of her artworks. She expresses herself through light or rather in light. She seeks both outer and inner light and travels to see mental or moral light, trying to elevate her work through the light of the spirit. Nikomachi’s work floats or hovers over the underlying layers of color. There is a luminosity to her art pieces that comes from using colors of similar value in different saturations. The light of the art pieces invites the viewer into the space and the timeless abstraction becomes more about light, space and the divine

GREG WOOD

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.
