A look at Isobel Cortese’s weird & wonderful miniature worlds.

A look at Isobel Cortese's weird & wonderful miniature worlds.

People love tiny things. Maybe this is a sweeping generalisation but stay with me because there is research to prove it. According to science (the internet) we humans can’t get enough of the small stuff because it forces us to act with care when we are handling it. Much like we might feel a connection […]

A look at Lily Macrae.

A look at Lily Macrae.

With powerful paintings that sit between figurative and abstraction, we opened 2018 with Lily Macrae’s standout (and near sell out) show ‘State of Change’. It was her figurative shadows and fleeting moments of movement that drifted laterally in and out of the canvases she presented in her final year ECA Degree Show (2016) that first […]

The Human Form: Part 3.

‘Portrait’ seems to be quite an obvious term at face value (…see what we did there). In the Western world, we have generally regarded the portrait to be a visual description of a particular person; articulating their literal appearance. Resultantly, we often view portraits that reject or subvert the actual image of someone, as a […]

Abstract Art: Playfulness.

Abstract Art: Playfulness.

Abstract art can sometimes be elevated to a superior – perhaps even pretentious – status in the art world; where it is paradoxically also condemned by many as ‘not art’, because it deviates from being overtly representational. There are often three camps of people that are suspicious of abstract art: the first simply dislike its […]

The Natural World: Water.

The Natural World: Water.

Water is perhaps the earth’s most malleable natural asset. It moves between its function as a simple daily resource that sustains our lives; to delineating global borders; and overwhelming human life by filling spectacular oceans. For some, those rivers, lochs, waterfalls, and seas are of unparalleled beauty; but for others the sheer power of water […]

Fear and the Uncanny. Part 1.

Fear and the Uncanny. Part 1.

Generally speaking, the concept of ‘art’ is almost always associated with the word ‘beautiful’. So many of us consider the most popular art to be that which is a perfect unification of colour, line, texture and subject matter – a stunning human face, a breathtaking landscape; a satisfying pattern of abstraction. This goes hand in […]
