Alan Knight

 

"My paintings are inspired by an emotional response to the natural world and are constantly evolving expressions of how I feel about my surroundings. I am fascinated by the effects of light and its role in revealing mood and atmosphere.

 

In my studio I try to let the materials lead the work to allow the glow of the landscape to come through the paint. The art work becomes a living body in its own right and is a response to my feelings of that time. I work on paper, canvas, board and occasionally found objects from my travels, using various ways of applying the paint until I sense an almost magical transformation take place.

 

I hope my paintings convey a sense of beauty, intrigue and place; something that can be enjoyed and lived with".

 

 

 

Karen Charman ASWA

 

"I was born on the South coast of England a few yards from the beach and a mile or so from the South Downs. As a child I spent hours either in a rock pool or in the country. My long held passion and inspiration stems from this time in my life although I have built upon this and added West Country moorland and arid Portugal.

Using any mediums or recycled items that suit the picture I am working on, I love creating texture and atmosphere in each piece. Experimentation plays a very big part in my processes too so although my abstracts are still inspired by the world around me I leave it to you, the viewer, to discover and interpret for yourselves those intriguing evocative passages.

I am a full time professional artist who also teaches a little. I exhibit in galleries in London and the Home Counties and have work in private collections in mainland Europe, Switzerland, USA, Russia and Japan."
