introducing caroline towning
Caroline grew up near Harrogate in Yorkshire surrounded by dogs and horses. Caroline had been taught to ride before she could even properly talk. She became a keen amateur showjumper and a familiar face on the Yorkshire circuit.
As a young equestrian artist, she would spend hours studying the horse sitting in the stable and during the summer she would sit in the fields sketching the horses grazing. These early years gave her a good grounding in the understanding of how to draw horses. Spending so much of her early years with horses has given her a deep understanding of the animal.
Caroline currently lives in London and works mainly on large-scale horse paintings on canvas. Her much-loved medium is oil. Her mission is to capture the essence of the horse and each painting is meant to bring the presence of the horse into the room with the viewer.
Introducing christian klute
Expressiveness and raw abstraction are the original strengths of my new painting technique, and as you know I spent the first months exploring the many possibilities before I proceeded to find ways to gain more control over the outcome by tackling realistic images with this new method. (Which turned out to be a quite challenging endeavor, kind of like taming a wild horse and teach it some tricks.)
The Master studies serve this purpose very well, but their benefits go far beyond the technical aspect. They also offer utterly important lessons about myself and what my art might be about after this rebirth process. Each of these various subjects I'm studying is teaching me a lot about what clicks for me, which subjects, tones, implementations etc. speak to me the most. "Nice" subjects implemented in a realistic manner for example often feel stiff and boring, while "not so nice and obvious" things, painted in a more lose and abstracted way feel alive and exciting. My studies are filled with hints like this and I'm busy following the breadcrumbs.
INTRODUCING BEN HOWE
Ben Howe is an Australian artist who was born in London, UK. Over nearly two decades, he has explored the nature of consciousness, personal history and the incongruities of memory through his artwork, which has taken him to England, Germany, China and the USA.
He holds a Masters of fine art with distinction from RMIT and is the recipient of numerous grants, international residencies and fellowships.
His paintings are often derived from preliminary explorations in other media, with a particular focus on sculpture. These form the physical basis for the artworks, which capture all the imperfections and peculiarities of the clay.
Action, isolation and refraction surface as thematic currents in the practice of an artist whose work functions as a platform for broader considerations relating to the physical and subjective self within contemporary society.
Ben is known for his signature quasi-scientific aesthetic that is at once hyper-realistic yet reductive.
INTRODUCING PAULO FRADE
Motivated by lapses in mental paintings that can bring the initial taste of a masterpiece, I clash between the subtle idea of colors, shapes and imaginative expressions to transform them into something dimensional and palpable. The pictorial matter is essential in my work . The oil texture, formation of layers , the use of impasto and the mixture of colors, which all are interrelated with the skin layers, the presence and the life of the person or object to be depicted.
Working with oil painting and the portrait itself can carry an intrinsic relationship with the intention of existential immutability through the image and memory. Bringing things or people into life though art gives the viewer the possibility to connect with a feeling of emanative life.
One of my main motivations is how to capture life derived from the bodies, rather than its mere representation. These subjective perceptions guide my figurative constructions, as well as the very questioning of the dual clash between the perception of life and death. If there are any subcutaneous or spiritual layers, these will be the objects of my study.
INTRODUCING AYOGU KINGSLEY
My works signify the cross-examination of emotions, structures, systems, and general concepts collected within society. Am Continually trying to transfer such feelings and my interpretation of life into a historically based art form such as portraits of women, men, and children.
I treat my works as poetry which captivates the viewer at first glance and inundates you in emotion. My paintings allow you to find compassion within yourself; they act as a trigger to tap into a human through life-like portraits.
In my work, Every blemish, scar, or intricate feature in it help express the truth in uncomfortable and Euphoria situations, and challenges I have experienced with a broad spectrum of displayed emotion through tears, despair, happiness, and affinity. On encounter of my piece, you constrained to feel connected and searching for ways to console or free the subject from anxiety.
