Daisy Courtauld

Daisy is a portrait artist and illustrator, based in Chelmsford. She studied Fine Art at the University of Essex, graduating in 2008. During her degree, Daisy developed a unique method of working with type and date stamps, which she repetitively stamps, in varying tones, to build and form her work.

Daisy has an interest in the fragility of identity in the context of global atrocities or human rights issues. Portraiture is her preferred subject matter as it enables her to convey the personal stories which are sometimes lost amongst the statistical facts and figures of such issues.

From her irst trial portrait with a date stamp back in 2007, Daisy's portfolio has expanded to include pet portraiture, architecture illustration, and her series of Alphabet Animal Illustrations, which have been printed as greetings cards and reproduced as screen prints for cushions and tote bags. Daisy regularly takes commissions, whilst selling through shops and trade fairs, as well as exhibiting her work in Essex, Suffolk, Kent, London and as far afield as Australia.

Jill Tushingham

Jill Tushingham is a sculptor who constructs from found objects to create beautiful, powerful sculptures and she believes that any material, if it inspires, can be utilised to create art.

Natural forms fascinate Jill and she believes nature has the capacity for change and continuity, an on-going process of creation and re-creation. Jill sees close connections between these natural processes and her need as a sculptor to construct and create.

" I need to look beyond the mere appearance of natural objects in order to understand structure and function. An object is not just simply an outside shape, or the shadows and highlights which reveal its form - but it's presence from inside the shape".

Karen Jones

What started off as an exercise in creating a three dimensional drawing has become something of an obsession for the artist Karen Jones. Influenced by the stylised images of artists such as Fornasetti, Gustave Dore and Eric Ravilious, these new artworks for 2017 rely on an extremely limited colour palette, where possible, line becomes the colour.

Using fine line work, paper, wire, whatever inspires Jones, in a restrained and delicate process, has created a series of fragile natural worlds where trees, birds and the air in between seem in perfect harmony...

In recent years Karen has exhibited in prestigious venues from the Royal Shakespeare Company - Stratford-upon-Avon, Houses of Parliament, Brighton Art Fair, Parallax AF New York and Hong Kong AAF - to name but a few and her work resides in both private and public collections.

Chris Scott

image1

Chris is a conceptualist photographer and videographer, although he does not like to label and limit himself to a particular medium. He studied fine art and public art at the University of Sunderland.

He is a keen cyclist and fan of the sport and for a period of his life served in the Prison and police Services. These both have had a significant impact on his artwork.

His current series, 'The Disappearing Bike', focuses on the fragility of cyclists and urban decay. From what started as a short film at university in the early 90's, 'Bin there, done that', since then Chris admits somewhat of an obsession with photographing bins and questioning identity.

AD portrait

The curved, three-dimensional works mark a turn in my approach to painting, they manifest their separation from the tradition of 'silent and passive flatness' through the 'excess of curve', They actively reach for the physical and cognitive space of the viewer. They protrude from the flat surface of the wall, revealing an unreadiness to BELONG. They are a screen for images that celebrate their own distortion. They reach for the REAL.

Isn't two-dimensional flatness a distortion of reality in the first place - Agnieszka Dlugosz

Elaine At Work

Elaine Tribley

Elaine Tribley explores and utilises her immediate environments, producing work with suggestions of belonging and nostalgia, often with a sense of irony.

Influenced by rural and urban landscapes, histories of place, artifice and the chance encounter, her work spans photography, drawing, sculpture, conceptualism and graphic design.

" I'm interested in creating new experiences for new audiences, opening up discussions, sharing culture, histories and bringing people together. Exploring and researching is a key part of my practice and within the work itself issues of display are paramount".

Gordon Flemons

Gordon and tree

Gordon Flemons practice examines the relationship between man and the space he inhabits.

Since graduating from Norwich School of Art he has conducted a series of 'experiments' that investigate the flux of forces that shape the boundaries of our lives, and the patterns of order and disorder these create.
