  • Deborah Azzopardi
    Biography : Deborah Azzopardi has become world-renowned for her distinctive pop art images which she has been producing for the past 25 years. While her colours serve as the initial bait to gain the viewer’s attention, it is her subject matter that hooks you and keeps you captivated. In “Saturday Night” 2004, lipstick is seductively applied, while elsewhere toned bodies remove items of clothing and long female legs dangle from a red convertible. These works are provocatively flirtatious, highlighted by playful titles such as “Beach Party” and “Happy Birthday”. Millions of people across the world are familiar with her artworks, her works have been published internationally and there is an incredible demand for her Original Paintings. Azzopardi’s mission is to be free to play with the drama and joy of everyday life. She breaks her subjects down into vibrant segments and into moments we have all experienced and she captures them forever in paint. The respect she has gained in publishing reflects the honesty and innocence of her intentions. Her paintings and Limited Editions celebrate the comedy of turbulent relationships, seductions and the fantasies and worries we all have. The viewer is allowed to ponder, without preconceptions, the moments her paintings represent. To possess a piece of Deborah Azzapardi’s work is to embrace the qualities that make us human and to be captivated by her palette of color.

  • Andy Burgess
    Biography : Artist Andrew Burgess's fascination with buildings continues with this new series of large scale paintings that colourfully re-imagines some of the iconic masterpieces of early Twentieth Century modern architecture. Focussing on Bauhaus, De Stijl and other movements associated with the “International Style” Burgess has been selecting subjects for his paintings with the discernment of the portrait painter. Buildings are chosen for their clean lines, bold geometric design and dynamic forms. Burgess approaches his subjects with a fresh eye, simplifying forms even further and inventing, somewhat irreverently, new colour schemes that expand the modernist lexicon beyond the minimalist white palette and the rigid use of primary colours. Whilst some of Burgess's subjects, such as Gerrit Rietveld's Schroder House or Pierre Koenig's Case Study House No. 22 are now world renowned examples of modern architecture, others are lesser known or even obscure masterpieces. For example Burgess has painted imaginative studies of the Austrian architect Lois Welzenbacher's Heyrovsky House and Rosenbauer House, both of which exhibit this architect's preference for dynamic curvilinear structures perched on the hillsides of the Austrian Tyrol. Starting with black and white images gleaned from his personal collection of antiquarian architecture books such as F.R.S. Yorke's “The Modern House” published in 1934, Burgess brings these and other houses to life for a contemporary audience with entirely invented colours and a painterly evocation of mood and place. Titling his new series of work “The Painted Cube” Burgess has embarked upon a project that he anticipates will occupy him for several years, exploring in depth the genesis of modern architecture in Europe and the US and it's relationship to modern art, avant-garde design and abstract painting in particular. “In some senses this project is a labour of love to record my own encyclopedia of early modern buildings

  • Tom Leighton
    Biography : Tom Leighton was born in London in 1981. Following his BA in printmaking from the University of Brighton in 2004, he gained an MA from the Royal College of Art in 2006. Throughout his practice, Leighton has worked with urban landscapes. In 2006 he won the John Purcell Paper Prize and the Thames & Hudson Book Prize. He has exhibited in London, Paris, Tokyo and the United States. Collections include The Sandor Family Collection, Chicago, Kunsthalle Weishaupt Collection, Ulm Germany, MuCEM (French National Museum of European and Mediterranean civilizations), Tiroche Collection, UK/Israel, The Shein Family Collection of Pennsylvania, Felix Robyns, 12 Advisors Group, London/Brussels, Nicholas Topiol, President of Christian Lacroix, Paris, The UBS Art Collection, JCA Group, London & The Victoria and Albert Museum, London. Leighton lives and works in London and is represented by The Cynthia Corbett Gallery, London. Detailed Description : The photographs of Tom Leighton engage with urban landscape. By digitally altering photographs Leighton tries to deconstruct and retranslate the cities that we inhabit. Creating fictional landscapes allows him to ignore the constraints of possibility and logic. However as much as he pulls apart and constructs his unique urban views, he aims to create a believable view of the world, which verges on the surreal but remains rooted in reality. Leighton finds that city architecture & infrastructure makes the urban environment a „seasonless‟ place. “My photographs are akin to a memory of a place - a distorted, reconstituted reality - by creating areas of ambiguity, I play with the brain‟s capacity to ignore or falsely correct what doesn‟t initially make sense. Frequently I try to leave the viewer of my work floating from an „all seeing‟ elevated dreamlike perspective – they become disconnected/disassociated and are left reflecting a vision of urban splendour which simultaneously conflicts with the evident paranoia inherent in contemporary society.” So in constructing his urban views he uses a number of indicators that set the tone of the photograph. For example bare trees and night settings indicate winter. In his work Leighton finds it important to incorporate some kind of organic movement to contrast against the symmetrical & restrictive architecture, and the artificial and seemingly everlasting city lights.

  • Klari Reis
    Biography : Klari Reis uses the tools and techniques of science in her creative process, constantly experimenting with new ways to apply materials and methods. She is driven by curiosity and her desire to explore and document the natural and unnatural with a sense of wonder and joy. The artist currently works in San Francisco, close to one of the largest concentrations of life science companies in the world. Klari takes advantage of this proximity to collaborate with local biomedical companies and thus receive inspiration from the cutting edge of biological techniques and discoveries; this context grounds her artwork and lets her authoritatively explore the increasingly fuzzy line between the technological and the natural. The unifying theme of Klari’s art is her mastery of a new media plastic, epoxy polymer, and the fine control she brings to its reactions with a constantly-expanding variety of dyes and pigments. The UV-resistant plastic, similar to resin, supplies a common framework for the methods and language that she uses to explore and express interactions of material and color on a microscopic level. Compositions display brightly colored smears, bumps and blobs atop aluminum and wood panels. She pigments the plastic with powders, oils, acrylics and industrial dyes, built up through many layers of the ultra-glossy plastic. The shapes and colors bleed, blur, shift, and spread becoming remarkable through their eccentric detail. A skilled technician with a studio for a laboratory, Klari has turned these processes of her own invention into science in the service of her art. Artist's Documents: Klari Reis You Are Here

  • Andréa Stanislav
    Biography : Andréa Stanislav was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1968. She lives and works in Minneapolis and New York City. Andréa received a MFA from Alfred University in 1997 and a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1990. She is a contemporary artist whose interdisciplinary practice includes: sculpture, video, installation and public projects and interventions. Her work interrogates global capital and popular culture via the unexpected -- with her multimedia installations and monumental sculpture. Theodor Adorno once said that ‘without the notion of an unfettered life, freed from death, the idea of utopia, of the utopia, cannot even be thought at all.’ If this is correct it lends a terrible irony to the fact that Man’s attempts to create ideal conditions for himself are so often mapped out through trails of carnage and destruction. The work of Andréa Stanislav displays an acute awareness of this tension and offers a series of elegant yet challenging reflections on the limits and failures of the utopic imagination. Reflection is a key word in Stanislav’s lexicon, as it serves to indicate both the means and the ends of her artistic endeavor. In her work, the viewer is not simply invited but compelled, by use of reflective surfaces, to interrogate their own position vis-a-vis the artwork, and, by extension, vis-a-vis history and culture. These surfaces, revealing the face of the viewer at every turn, and often to infinity, point to the futility of our attempts to escape our unsatisfactory current conditions and our desire to find meaning and impose structure on the underlying chaos of the Real. And yet at all times, the viewer is haunted by her own face.

  • Delphine Boël
    Biography : Delphine Boël is known for creating multi-media artworks overflowing with color, texture and humor. From painting to neon sculptures and brass design pieces her sculptures are vibrant and whimsical. Even though she has lived the majority of her life in London, her spirit remains absolutely and typically Belgian: "la joie de vivre" - not taking oneself too seriously; and, individualistic. Delphine herself describes her work as "an allergic reaction to the power of gossip, rumors, and blabla small talk in general." This message is firmly embodied in her works ranging from a shiny metal-sculpted word blabla, to paintings that scream out "this system is corrupt be happy." Her explicit use of words and language makes the message very straightforward, while her use of color and composition leaves space for whimsy and irony. "My work is an allergic reaction to the power of gossip, rumors, and blabla small talk in general. "Shut Up & Listen blabla – White, Black & Red" is a message encouraging the viewer to stop indulging in blabla talk and instead listen to the beauty of silence." If you google ‘Delphine Boël’, you will find that many of the hits have less to do with art than her origins: she is reputed to be the illegitimate daughter of King Albert II of Belgium. Issues of identity, luxury, reputation, royalty and Belgian culture often clearly inspire Boël’s art. ABSOLUT DELPHINE (created for the Venice Biennale in 2003) is a colorful sculpture of steel, papier-mâché, plaster, and acrylic and ultraviolet paints. She put the ABSOLUT Vodka bottle on its own throne. "Such a famous bottle, it should have its own thrown." says Boël. Boël’s ABSOLUT DELPHINE sculpture is one of 70 ABSOLUT artworks chosen for display in the new SPRITMUSEUM in Stockholm (exhibition runs summer 2012 – January 2013). The exposition is a retrospective of ABSOLUT artworks created between 1986-2004 and includes iconic ABSOLUT pieces by Andy Warhol, Keith Hering, Damien Hi

  • Lottie Davies
    Biography : Davies’ work is concerned with stories and personal histories, the tales and myths we use to structure our lives: memories, life-stories, beliefs and identity while also referencing popular culture, such as cinema and television. She takes inspiration from classical, Old Masters such as Constable, Delaroche and from modern painting, cinema and theatre as well as the imaginary worlds of literature. She employs a deliberate reworking of our visual vocabulary, playing on our notions of nostalgia, visual conventions and subconscious ‘looking habits’, with the intention of evoking a sense of recognition, narrative and movement. Sandy Nairne, Director of the National Portrait Gallery in London, has described Davies’ work as “brilliantly imaginative”. Lottie Davies has enjoyed success with numerous awards such as the Association of Photographers’ Awards, the International Color Awards, and the Schweppes Photographic Portrait Awards. In 2012 her collaboration on 'Dreams of Your Life' with Hide & Seek/Film 4.0 was BAFTA-nominated. Specific images have garnered international acclaim. Her image Quints, 2008 won First Prize at the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Awards 2008 at the National Portrait Gallery in London.

September 2013 work from her Memories and Nightmares series were exhibited as part of a group show at the Dong Gang International Photo Festival at the Dong Gang Museum, in South Korea, curated by Louise Clements and Joanne Yang, titled ‘The Constructed View: UK Photography Now’.

  • Nina Fowler
    Biography : Nina Fowler’s cinematic mix of skilled pencil drawings and beautifully executed plaster sculptures is vital and arresting, with a clear link to a past when painting and sculpture were considered to be almost real in their depiction of life.

Fowler completed a BA Fine Art in Sculpture at Brighton University, East Sussex in 2003. Her solo shows include: It’s Just My Funny Way of Dancing: Parts I–XIII, Lazarides: The Outsiders, London, 2011; A Real Allegory: Parts I & II, Dukan Hourdequin, Paris, 2011; and Valentino’s Funeral, Dukan Hourdequin, Lyon, 2009.

  • Charles Moxon
    Biography : Charles Moxon (b.1990) is a British artist specialising in portraiture. Having graduated from BA (Hons) Painting at Camberwell College of Art (2013) he has been short-listed and highly commended for the Young Masters Art Prize 2012 and the Open West exhibitions 2013. Charles Moxon’s portraits draw on past techniques, in particular those of the Dutch 17th-century Old Masters. He combines these traditional techniques with the added observational detail and hyper-reality of contemporary photorealism. His use of lighting and fluid paint strokes is reminiscent of Vermeer, with a similar layering of transparent glazes to create depth. In his commissioned portrait of Roy Bentley, an ex-England and Chelsea football player, Moxon captures the sitter with startling accuracy. His work, National Anthem (2011), exhibited at the Mall Galleries as part of the 2012 BBC series Show Me the Monet portrays an elderly woman in the latter stages of her life. In 2011, his work appeared in Dazed and Refused, Hurwundeki Gallery, London. Moxon was recently shortlisted to the Final 300 in the BP Award, 2012. His portraiture has been featured on the BBC, the Independent newspaper and in Rankin’s Hunger Magazine, 2013. Lives and works in London, UK.

    Biography : Ghost of a Dream is the collaborative project of Lauren Was ( born 1977 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA) and Adam Eckstrom (born 1974 in Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA). Ghost of a Dream works with sculpture and installation to embody the essence of opulence, through construction of materials that end up in the trash.

  • Nicolas Saint Gregoire
    Biography : NICOLAS SAINT GREGOIRE - LIGHT SCULPTURES Light is the centre of Saint Gregoire's creativity. Whether in his early light portraits, or in his more recent works inspired by Yves Saint Laurent, Saint Gregoire strives to explore the limits of the medium of light as an essential, yet intangible, component to his art. Between 2009 and 2012, Saint Gregoire created twelve light sculptures. These pieces are compositions of laser-cut, coloured plexiglass plates backlit with neon tubes giving the works a sense of life and form. From this, a series of illuminated dress works developed, inspired by Yves Saint Laurent’s Fall - Winter collection of 1965 and the works of Dutch Modernist painter Piet Mondrian. This series merges Saint Gregoire's investigation of light with Mondrian’s explorations of colour in the last century. Saint Gregoire’s Mondrian Dress Ivoire uses neon light that gives a new dimension and vibrancy to the colours, intensifying the blue, red and yellow in a way that positions each of the colours at the forefront of the work. This concept is evolved in the Mondrian 2 dress and Mondrian 3 dress, where the colours gradually disappear in favour of white. The final work in the series, Mondrian 5, is completely white, (a symbol of virginity) where only the neon tubes trace the original forms of the colours. The naked silhouette of the Wesselmann Dress Body, the visage of the Wesselmann Dress Face and the embracing flying doves from the Braque Dress are accentuated by Saint Gregoire’s use of light. With the emphasis of neon the forms become alive, the original design becomes new and the colours become more or less intensified as the Plexiglass is positioned closer or farther from the neon light beneath. Behind the bright colours and clean lines of these neon and Plexiglass light sculptures, Nicolas Saint Gregoire’s art is more subversive than it seems at first. Since his first solo exhibition in 2007 entitled Show Me the Light, Saint Gregoire has

  • Derrick Santini
    Biography : Derrick Santini’s creative view is very much rooted in ancient times. His series of lenticular photographs have a clear Old Masters reference, combined with a modern technique that literally animates the beautiful ancient myth of Leda and the Swan. Santini’s intention is very much to modernise the fable, to reinvigorate and shift the power to the female. Originally from North Yorkshire, Santini discovered his love for photography in his early teens. He subsequently gained a BA Hons in Photography and Communication at the London College of Communication. Santini soon evolved to become an accomplished reportage photographer. He captured subjects and situations on to which he could project his own intellectual and aesthetic thoughts and fantasies. Santini’s work propelled him into portraiture, music, photography, fashion and advertising. He works across genres, but all based on a style defined by his first love – reportage
