Bring your home to life! The Art of Ruth Mulvie.

The way Ruth Mulvie demonstrates her love and understanding of paint is refreshing! Inspired by Pierre Bonnard and perhaps the more commonly known Peter Doig, she brings a lavish quality to the sunset villas, wildlife and stylized people that she depicts on canvas. Brush strokes are clean, each plant and building are structured in such a way that mimic that quality of art nouveau.

Surrounded by exciting new cultures, experiences and environments, Ruth Mulvie uses her own photography, or images from magazine and published editorial contents to make a collage. After much time adjusting compositions she will then use this collage as reference to paint her canvases. At first glance they remind me of the work of David Hockney, however if you look closely there is more of an agenda to each painting. Filled with surreal connotations (wildlife wandering aimlessly by the poolside) Ruth adds inaccurate shadows and perspective to each painting giving the viewer a sense of dream like narrative with each painting.

Ruth now settled in Brighton is working with our gallery to showcase a range of limited editions and original work. Limited editions are modest in size and originals large and comforting of scale.  Real statement paintings to brighten up your home.

The Art off Kate Brinkworth

Kate Brinkworth’s painting stems from her curiosity in films, particularly those directed by or in the style of Hitchcock. She is particularly inspired by effects created though experimentation with focus, and repeatedly photographs her still lifes with various shutter speeds, camera angles and lighting to find the optimum composition. Brinkworth’s style uses the language of film, advertising and photography to create these unique images; her visits to Las Vegas have developed her interest in the representation of objects associated with vice. Painted in varying degrees of focus, her expert technique deceives the viewer into believing the work is a photograph, due to the realism of her subject matter and style, and the thin application of paint which gives a smooth, glossy finish. It is only on closer inspection that the viewer realises the work is entirely painted by hand.

‘Cola Bottles’

This particular piece was actually acquired from the artist personal collection. It was painted as a pair, this she kept where as the other painting sold through Christies auction house, January 2014 for almost £9,000.

http://www.christies.com/lotfinder/paintings/kate-brinkworth-tall-coke-5762480-details.aspx

Brinkworth’s works challenge our perceptions of the image; in our contemporary world inundated with visual stimuli, she painstakingly labours over her compositions to make us look at these familiar objects in a new way. In a parallel challenge to contemporary conventions her technique mirrors the Renaissance mural technique of the ‘cartoon’, a drawing which would be pricked along the lines and dusted with charcoal to transfer the skeleton of the image to the wall. Brinkworth similarly maps out her photographs onto both sides of sheets of paper and rubs the reverse to move the image onto the canvas. Once the composition is mapped out, she begins working into the picture in oil using her distinctive technique.
