  • Adrift (study), 2019

    by Martyn Jones

    Bright and often clashing colour has always played a fundamental role in Martyn Jones’ paintings. The artist has said that; “The importance of colour as a vehicle of expression in painting was impressed on me at an early stage of my development, by the British artist Patrick Heron. My work mainly adheres to, and is inspired by, European traditions in painting. My deepest influences lie in the work of Miro, Braque, Kandinsky and Heron”.

  • Adrift 2019

    by Martyn Jones

    ‘Colour has always played a fundamental role in my painting. The importance of colour was impressed on me at an early stage, by the British artist Patrick Heron. My paintings explore and are specific to, the theme of ‘place and time’. The work is descriptive in essence, natural shape and form taken from the world at large. Ideas for paintings begin with preliminary studies ‘in situ’, working directly from landscape or primary sources. Initial ideas are translated into larger scale paintings, working on paper or canvas. The compositional elements that are employed within each painting aim to capture a spirit of immediacy and simplicity. The content of my work has been described as capturing a natural ambiguity, but that ambiguity should not be construed as being manufactured in any way. Within each image an open invitation is challengingly presented to the percipient. It is difficult to determine when a painting is finished, but usually I instinctively know when that moment has arrived. I can say more often than not, my paintings finish themselves.’ – Martyn Jones DIMENSIONS: (unframed) 39.4 x 49.2 in./100.0 x 125.0 cm SIGNATURE: Signed, titled and dated 2019 verso.

The photograph depicts a hunter from the indigenous Shuar Arutam community, wearing traditional dress and holding a long staff, in the Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest. The man sits on a thick vine against a natural stone wall, which is covered, like everything in the rainforest, with bright green moss. The ease with which the man inhabits this wild environment pays testament to the way in which the Arutam people live in harmony with their forest home.
  • At the Moulin Rouge

    by Barry John

    DIMENSIONS: (unframed) 35.4 x 35.4 in./90.0 x 90.0 cm MEDIUM: Spray paint on canvas   John is deeply attuned to the energy and emotional resonance of his subjects and demonstrates a love of colour throughout much of his work. He has works in a variety of styles; he expresses stories, memories, demons and harsh truths as well as the beauty, colours and resilience of a conflicted world. His large-scale ‘black graffiti’ paintings resulting from visits, after the wake of terrorist attacks, to London tread the line between order and chaos with the use of vibrant colours. His ‘flamenco’ paintings reveal his skill as an artist and his inspiration from the sounds and rhythms of experiences in Brazil. He uses vivid blues and reds for paintings of the Welsh coastline, suggesting that John paints the colours he is feeling as opposed to the colours he sees.

  • Babylon

    by Jeremy Houghton

    Jeremy has a real passion for birds – specifically, for depicting them in flight. This interest was ignited when he began watching the local flamingo population in Cape Town, where he spent a number of years running an art school after finishing his degree in law (something he says he hated and did because art wasn’t seen to offer “proper” prospects). Houghton’s images of migrating flocks are unexpectedly quiet pieces, with an even more marked deployment of empty space than the sports paintings. Houghton says that in essence all his paintings are an attempt to depict movement, and that blank space is crucial to this, given that by nature movement sits right at the edge of what it is possible to represent.

  • Composition, 1984

    by Hajime Kato

    DIMENSIONS: (unframed) 51.2 x 63.8 in./130.0 x 162.0 cm SIGNATURE: Signed 'Kato' and dated (lower left) MEDIUM: Oil on canvas   “His style is filled with a brisk energy, like wind fairies dancing wildly in the transparent morning sun light.” (Shuji Takashina, professor Emeritus at Toyko University and Director of Ohara Art Museum.)   Kato’s mesmerising paintings are filled with sharp edged spindle-shapes that appear ready to slice open the air that surrounds them. Each of these shapes appears to be moving, creating a sense of speed and tension within the picture. The way the shapes interlock and overlap one another gives them a very sleek almost natural appearance, despite their bright, otherworldly colours. This creates a sense of euphoria for the viewer, as if they are floating in a boundless space, completely freed from our Earthly bindings.

    Dead Relatives comes from a series of pioneering works that Brown produced in 1995 that were based on Frank Auerbach’s iconic paintings of his most frequently depicted sitter, Juliet Yardley Mills.

    Jeremy’s paintings try and evoke a feeling of timelessness so you look at them and think, ‘Is this today or is it 100 years ago?’ Jeremy says of his own work, “When I go out for a day hunting or fishing I will take as many photos as possible but I am very keen not to be seen because I don’t want people to pose, I want them just to carry on doing what they do. I don’t want to be the focal point, I’m just in the shadows observing from a distance.
