still life jar boiled sweets

‘Still Life jar Boiled Sweets’ by Christopher Green
Original Artwork : Oil on Board
Price £2,650

Green paints ‘hyper’ realism. Although he often uses photography to capture transient lighting conditions, he has absolutely no desire to produce a faithful reproduction of the photographs themselves. Instead he uses the images as reference points for the creation of a heightened, idealised reality.

Jane Thomson – Exalting the Everyday

Unfolding

Unfolding‘ by Jane Thomson – 100cm x 80cm x 7cm – Mixed Media / Board – £1,495

Nottingham-based painter and lecturer Jane Thomson produces unique and sensual monochrome pieces using layers of print, paper and text.

Her figures, white and pure, emerge from a chalky void like sculptures. The elegant poses of her fragile subjects are depicted as if in alabaster or marble, elevating the everyday lives of these women to the realm of heroes and historical figures depicted by Michelangelo and his peers.

Her latest work is inspired by the timeworn frescos found in the chapels and villas of Florence and recall the high art of the ancient world.

This is most clearly seen in Study for Invisible Ink which appears as much a lover’s sketch as an alternative perspective of Diana of Gabii, sculpted by Praxiteles – a pioneer of depictions of the nude female form – more than 2000 years ago.

Study for Invisible ink on her skin

Invisible Ink‘ by Jane Thomson – 34cm x 18cm x 4cm – Mixed Media / Board – £395

‘Invisible Ink’ is a piece which rewards reflection, appearing also as a female response to Rodin’s famous ‘The Thinker’.

The work of Jane Thomson is composed of distorted poems, fragments swirling around the central figure. The effect is one of revelation and concealment, exposure and mystery, with a sense of hidden depth in the layers of print, Oils and pencil.

Jane Thomson will be displaying artwork within our ‘Fragments’ exhibition 30th June until 7th July. Do come and view these fabulous artworks.

Antony Gormley’s “Standing Matter” (2010)

Standing Matter 2010

Antony Gormley’s ‘Standing Matter’ (2010) is a piece of human appreciation of the weight of mans’ imperfection faced with those perfect symmetrical blocks of his own creation. A human without angles and anonymous against colourless outlines speaks to the hopelessness of the human condition – relentless progress of the Lego block constructions of our weak and featureless imaginations against the molecular structure less shape of our existence. Exquisite.

‘Standing Matter’ is on display in the Gallery and available to purchase. Framed and certified with Gormley’s signature on the reverse.

Banksy. Do we invest?

Last week saw the opening of his latest exhibition. At a hotel nestled against the controversial barrier wall separating Israel from Palestine, Banksy has transformed the building with art and sculpture synonymous with its geographical and historical positon. Although it’s fair to say it will be critically analysed over the coming weeks with both good and bad reviews, one thing for certain is that Banksy is back on top of the art world. The honorary top spot was compounded by the fact that yesterday Sotheby’s sold a piece ‘This is a pipe’ for £285,000. A sum double its estimate.

Its a Pipe

Banksy is certainly hot property so let’s speculate as to why he continues to take the art world by storm. One might suggest his ideas are current and mainstream, incorporating a humorous stance residing within international cultures outlining war, consumerism, social media and politics. Others believe his success to be predominantly based upon a supposedly discreet identity. I personally believe his success is down to sheer skill in delivering the concept and by this I don’t mean his ability to stencil and spray paint onto a wall but to continue to create works that intrigue and inspire the entire globe. The old saying of letting the art do the talking is obviously paramount here and echoes forth with regards to the simply staggering effect Banksy has had upon the art market throughout his career.

So, down to the facts. A lot of people feel that Banksy paints on walls and or occasionally creates murals for A List celebrities, however obtaining a piece of art by Banksy doesn’t have to be that difficult… Here in the gallery we are exhibiting unsigned and signed works by Banksy. Over the past decade Banksy has released much signed work into the market. He created a number of limited editions that have become incredibly collectible, the most sought after being the famous ‘Girl with Balloon’. A piece (in good condition) is worth up to £70,000 on the open market. Not a bad investment considering its initial retail ticket was around £200.

As I mentioned there are a number of pieces in various galleries and adorning the walls of collectors. Some more exciting and deemed more collectable than others. The gallery is pleased to announce a number of signed and unsigned pieces by Banksy are on display. You are welcome to view works below with further more in our studio. If you would like information regarding his works or any particular pieces do contact us.

Size matters…

What do we think about buying that piece of art? More specifically what do we think about large statement pieces? Bringing a statement artwork into your home isn’t as daunting as you may think… It has the potential to change your living environment with monumental impact and inspire you to think around further inter design projects within your home or office. It doesn’t have to be that piece which ‘just fills the space…’ Having a statement piece not only finishes off a room design but also shows off your personality and tastes. Depending upon colour and content it has the potential to change your mood and energy.

As we move ever closer to spring and with an element of warmth in the air we have chosen 10 large, vibrant, statement artworks from our portfolio of emerging and established artists
