Carolyn Whittaker

Carolyn’s work demonstrates an inherent fascination with the unstoppable nature of time’s ability to change things. The viewer can often experience this ephemeral process and its associated risks in the reformation of wax, ice, jelly or ice cream forms as they burn or melt. The unpredictable metamorphosis of these works creates a contrasting tension with her other practice consisting of cast and carved, immutable, bronze and stone forms.

Marta Artacho

Marta Artacho (Madrid, 1971), is a Spanish artist based in London developing her own style, somewhere between geometric abstraction and pop art. Through the repetition of two-dimensional geometric patterns, the application of the dotted technique and the use of vivid colours applied to natural materials, Marta creates an organic and textured vision of the abstract in which colours do not mix, except in the viewer’s retina. A self-taught artist, she began her career creating handicraft pieces using bamboo and other canes found on the beach. Born and raised in the Costa del Sol (Southern Spain), Marta’s influences come from the landscapes and lights of this coastal region, where she spent most of her life. Her quest for her own artistic voice began by experimenting with techniques such as pyro-engraving and the transformation of accidents that occur while working with recycled materials into an expressive resource. The result of this journey is a contemplation of two panoramas that begin by spanning an Impressionistic expression of light that uses geometric elements, sinewy lines and curves as scenery, only to advance towards a more precise pop art whereby the icons on display are the emblematic bulls of Spain and those found in Marta’s new home, London.

Joanna Layla

 

Joanna's work rotates around the hand drawn and begins with her pencil. Drawing is the language with which she explores the liminal territories of illustration and mark-making. Teasing out meaning and interpretation in series of works on paper, she finds alternative narratives within the traces of process and design. Juxtaposing pencil with mixed media to unsettle line work, she plays to create a visual language that gestures to both real and abstract, and most recently digital, planes. Interdisciplinary collaboration has inspired her most recent illustrations as seen in 'All These Words' print series.

Ted Tuesday celebrates the throwaway nature of contemporary culture by creating images from sources such as magazines, flyers, advertising and political campaigns. By re-working image on top of image and fragmenting the discernible text and forms, Ted draws parallels to the fleeting nature of life. The process of manually reproducing images from mass media echoes the history of painting as a form of documentation.
