Charles Avery

 

Born Oban, 1973. Lives and works in London and Mull. Since 2005 Avery has dedicated his practice to the description of a fictional island, which he continually elaborates, describing its population, customs and philosophies, nature and architecture, expressed in the form of large-scale drawings, sculptures, installations and texts. Known only as ‘The Island’, Avery’s wave-lapped realm is not only a vividly realised fiction, teeming with sights both strange and strangely familiar, it also operates as a petri dish in which the artist tests ideas from the fields of epistemology, aesthetics, mathematics, economics, anthropology, architecture, and beyond.

Chapman Brothers

 

A duo of British artists whose shocking, collaborative projects incorporate plastic or fiberglass models to depict gruesome scenes of Nazi soldiers, McDonald’s characters, skeletons, dinosaurs, and other oddities. Their works are reminiscent
of both Hieronymous Bosch’s ghoulish scenes of hell and Francisco Goya’s dark parodies of the Spanish government.
Born Iakovos (Jake) Chapman in 1966 in Cheltenham, and Konstantinos (Dinos) Chapman in 1962 in London,
the Chapman brothers went on to study art, Dinos at Ravensbourne College of Art and Jake at North East London Polytechnic; they both attended the Royal College of Art for their master’s degree.

Ryan Gander

Born, 1976. Lives and works in Suffolk and London. He has established an international reputation through artworks that materialise in many different forms from sculpture to film, writing, graphic design, installation, performance and more besides.

Through associative thought processes that connect the everyday and the esoteric, the overlooked and the commonplace, Gander’s work involves a questioning of language and knowledge, a reinvention of the modes of appearance and creation of an artwork. His work can be reminiscent of a puzzle, a network with multiple connections, the fragments of an embedded story, a huge set of hidden clues to be deciphered, encouraging viewers to make their own connections and invent their own narrative in order to solve the charade with its many solutions, staged by the artist.

An exhibition of her motherhood paintings last year celebrated the stresses and pleasures of mothering. Jacqueline Rose, author of Mothers: An Essay on Love and Cruelty, writes: ‘Amy Shuckburgh’s delicate yet bold and vivid images of motherhood manage to evoke a portrait for our time that avoids the twin pitfalls of idealisation and punishment.’
Amy divides her time between London and Cornwall, where she has family roots, and a recent solo show in London of her Cornish work focused on her emotional response to the coastal landscape, and her interest in the layered narratives that places conceal.

There is a quiet mention of feminism alongside pattern and textiles that intimately weave stories with costume, embellishment and natural history.

Stuart Pearson Wright

Born in 1975 and lives in a castle ruin in the middle of nowhere, somewhere in England. After painting Prince Philip naked in 2003 he has been on the run and in hiding from Scotland Yard. He is plagued by an existential void due to his conception in the mid-1970s by anonymous donor insemination. This compels him to spend far too much time by himself in a studio, wrestling with notions of identity, often on a canvas, but not always.

He once met former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown in J.K.Rowling’s kitchen whilst she was making him a salmon sandwich. The salmon was, perhaps surprisingly, from a can. Stuart has a wife, two children and five sheep.

Michael Rothenstein RA

Born in 1908, the son of Sir William Rothenstein; his brother John was Director of the Tate Gallery. He studied art at Chelsea Polytechnic and the Central School of Arts before settling in rural Essex. Rothenstein produced landscape watercolours and drawings throughout the 1920s. In the late 1940s he turned to print making, which remained his abiding obsession.
In the 1950s Rothenstein attended the avant-garde Atelier 17 print studio in Paris and his work was constantly evolving through the 1960s and beyond. He made numerous mixed media prints, often using abstract symbols, and his colour woodcuts and linocuts won international recognition. This, combined with his outstanding lithographs and screen prints, confirmed Rothenstein’s position at the very forefront of the 20th century British printmaking renaissance.

Dexter Dalwood

 

Born in Bristol, 1960. A rare instance of an artist equipped to examine how history is constructed and interpreted through the making of paintings which are both intellectually challenging and visually seductive. The juxtaposition of quotations and references from an eclectic range of subjects is reflected in the transposition of the cut-and-paste of the collage technique to canvas.

Not only does Dalwood possess a profound cultural and historical knowledge, he also perceives the connections between art history, politics, music, literature and personal experience, which he intimates with a remarkable lightness of touch. His paintings reward close observation, for the event or situation depicted is always reflected in the styles of painting that were developed during the periods referred to in the work.
