Anna Marrow original painting

Anna Marrow - Prints + Paintings

Anna Marrow originally trained in Fine Art at UWE Bristol and achieved distinction at MA level from Central St Martins, London.

Anna works from Spike Island print studios in Bristol where she loves to work with silkscreen because of the limitless possibilities and flexibility the technique itself offers from starting with bold splashes of colour to completing a work with delicate hand-drawn lines, scraps of text and collages of photographic imagery. This organic completion of works often intended to be of an edition can result in collectible one-offs being created.

We showcase an exclusive range of Anna Marrow's prints and which are available to view at our studio by appointment.

It's a pleasure to announce a collaboration with the exceptional and popular British abstract painter Boo Compton. 

Boo Compton is a contemporary abstract artist living in Suffolk, having previously been London based where she ran her own successful graphic design agency.   

In recent years, Boo has forged a successful artistic career by creating distinctive paintings that embrace strong visual dynamics, colour and often texture. Boo works in acrylics and mixed media working in a range of sizes. Her work is regularly exhibited and she has a worldwide collector base. 

Boo's recent work will be showing at the October 2023 edition of the Affordable Art Fair, Battersea, London. This new collection sees her exploring the blending of layers to produce a series entitled 'Afterglow'.

Carrie Jean Goldsmith Paintings

Carrie Jean Goldsmith

Carrie Jean Goldsmith uses various media to create both abstract and loosely representational artwork with colour, gesture and tonal gradation key elements to her work. 

Goldsmith endeavours to create imagery that is both compelling and ambiguous, always with a glimmer of light. She is influenced by her surroundings and her own physical and contemplative state. Goldsmith’s work attempts to capture the essence of her subject, seeking the balance between expressionism and informed thought.

Abstract Photography by Christine Wilkinson

Christine Wilkinson’s work blurs the boundaries between photography and painting. Light becomes form. Form without substance, existing only as an instance of colour and light.

It begins with a photograph or a fragment of a photograph - car headlights maybe or sunlight streaming through a window. It’s a starting point, a process, reducing the image simply to random pixels to be used as raw material.  Then it’s about finding the subject matter through the process, evoking a sensation rather than pinning down an image. 

Christine quotes Vaughan Oliver "One thing leads to another, and during the process you’ll stumble upon something that just happens, and that in a way gives you the feeling of what you were looking for in the beginning."

Based in central London and with a background in video and filmmaking Christine Wilkinson experiments with film and digital cameras, scanners, photocopiers, digital darkroom software ... and occasionally a pencil ... to create form out of light.

Working with photographic negatives and digital pixels she creates something in between photography and painting with highly colourful results.

Please do get in touch with any queries about the work and commissions.

Gina Cross  Sculptural Movements abstract photography

Gina Cross

Gina Cross is a multi-disciplinary artist and curator whose work investigates the relationships between space, form, colour and light. 

Gina’s current work is focused on working with paper and metal to create sculptural works alongside using photography as a core part of her practice to document the ephemeral nature of form and the interaction of light and colour. The results are a mixture of photographic prints and physical artworks on paper and metal. 

Gina states that ‘my work is inspired and influenced by many factors including the sculptural qualities of some haute couture, architecture, the play of light and shadow. All of my work is fundamentally concerned with the relationship of space, colour, light and form.’

Since 2022 Gina has been working on reclaimed copper plate, photo etching the plates with textures and shapes that are derived from her own photographs and manipulations. The metal undergoes chemical processes to transfer the imagery on to the plate, and Gina embraces the imperfections that happen in this process that are adding themselves to the existing history engraved in the metal.

Colour is applied through a number of processes, including mono printing, screen printing stencilled shapes and enamel spray paint, working intuitively and not to a plan. 

The reflective surface acts as the spacial element in the compositions, helping the applied colours shine but also they reflect the light and colour of their surroundings, and in that sense they come alive. 

These works were recently shown at the London Original Print Fair 2024 and are currently created for commissions and gallery shows.

Jo de Pear

Jo de Pear

Jo de Pear is a British Printmaker whose recent work has focused on the flora and fauna of the island of Antigua where she spends several months of the year living and working. Her work has explored the process of cyanotype, using the strong sunshine as her enlarger to create striking one-off works. 

Due to the pandemic, Jo was grounded in London for a year, where she took the time to develop her cyanotype works into other creative print processes. This has included etching, screenprinting and woodblock printing. 

We are very pleased to feature here a collection of Artist Proofs from a new collection of prints . These have been hand printed by Jo in London. 


** Please note : these have been photographed in both natural and artificial light - due to the nature of the ink which has a slightly reflective quality to it - the colours are not exact. 

All works are sold unframed - for framing options please do get in touch. 

 

johanna melvin paintings

Johanna Melvin

 

Johanna Melvin is an abstract painter whose work references architectural detail and the everyday experience of living in an urban/suburban environment. Her use of colour, form, gesture and hard-edges respond to the ordinary and sometimes extra-ordinary.

A starting point or inspiration for this process might be found in architecture: a window, an open door or a shadow cast along a wall. Other kinds of fleeting visual sensation informing the work and its preoccupation with the painterly and sometimes cursive, might be the incidental brush-marks found on a whitewashed window, city-scapes or found colour relationships in the urban environment that excite the eye.

At the root of her work is a love of colour and sense of freedom, a playfulness which is mediated by elements of control.

 

kate banazi perspex box sculpture

Kate Banazi


Kate Banazi (1970) is a multi disciplinary artist currently based in Sydney, Australia. Born in London, Banazi originally studied fashion design at Central St Martin’s before moving her practice predominantly over to silkscreen printing. 

Her current work celebrates relationships, the body in space, movement, shadows and colour. Interlocking shapes are held together lightly but always ready to fall apart. Negative space and line work map chaos, voids and beauty. Repetition, ritual, science and colour theory hold great interest and are often referenced in her work with elements exploring her own mixed heritage and familial ties.

For many years she has been exploring the themes of beauty and who dictates what is its definition. Interpreting this to a raw and honest embrace of the flaws in the silkscreen - the silkscreens are un-retouched, pinholes and marks which normally would be repaired are accepted and celebrated contrary to the idea of printmaking as a facsimile process, utilising it as a painting medium creating one of a kind pieces rather than editions.

Kate has a diverse multidisciplinary art based practice with silkscreen printing, sculpture and painting, through to collaborations in fashion, music, illustration and advertising with explorations into light, colour and graphic motifs with an experimental, intuitive and often playful foundation.

She has exhibited in group and solo shows Internationally and her work is collected and commissioned by private, public and corporate collectors worldwide.

Marleen Pennings

Marleen Pennings

Marleen Pennings was born in The Netherlands (1978) and currently lives in Germany.

She graduated with honours from the Academy of Fashion Design & Styling in 2002 and after graduation she worked in Fashion Design for several years whilst also working on her illustration and painting interests. For the past several years Marleen has been concentrating on developing her painting style and love of mixing colours. Her figurative work is her subtile translation of a mix of city and nature, time and colour. Colour has an important role in the decision-making process and sometimes works from photographs, but mainly from memory.

In her recent free abstract work, Marleen uses paint, spray paint and pastel to create abstract images, built from layers of colours.

Natalie Ryde

Natalie Ryde

 

Natalie Ryde is a Scottish artist based in North London working predominantly in drawing and painting.  She is also an artist printmaker creating variable state and short-run silk-screen editions.  After graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in 2005 with a first class BA(Hons) and Post Graduate Diploma in Jewellery, Natalie soon realised that fine art was her calling and embarked upon a series of residencies, notably as Artist in Residence at Kensington Palace in 2011/12.  Since then her career has seen her undertake projects and commissions at many high profile museums, heritage sites and galleries.  

Natalie’s studio at Artist Hive in Tottenham is packed full of works on paper, sketchbooks, mixed-media models, found natural objects and huge, new paintings on canvas.  Her work explores and imagines the patterns of nature from the invisibly tiny, through the observable world to the inconceivably enormous.  Natalie says about her work, “My subject matter stretches out under the forest floor and swells in the oceans, it hides in the dark and quivers in the depths of space.  It echoes off my window panes and its colour seeps in through the gap in the curtains.  It is both within me and flows through me. The lattice patterns I draw speak of an arrhythmia in the metronomy of the universal heartbeat that makes me aware of its tick-tock pattern.”

Note: These drawings and prints are best seen in person - to arrange a viewing please contact Gina Cross +44 (0) 7950 415422 

 

 

 

Nicole Rose

Nicole Rose

 

Nicole Rose is a London based artist who creates ethereal abstract paintings in oil.

She says of her work : "My approach to painting echoes the principles of successful graphics – visual storytelling through symmetry, colour, balance, and the spaces in between. I create abstract paintings based on the landscape around me. Painting in oils, I layer and blend various shapes of colours to recreate an emotional response to the starting image of a place I have been. I love the push and pull of oil paints and the process of an image evolving on the canvas. Sometimes the outcome is expected. Other times it’s not."

Alongside creating paintings, Nicole creates complementary digital prints that are at once a reflection of the original piece – and a new perspective on it. After photographing a section of a finished painting, she reimagines the work in Photoshop; blending, blurring and rebalancing to create a run of limited-edition prints. 

 

Ptolemy Mann

Ptolemy Mann

Gina Cross  

Ptolemy Mann has been creating work from her studio since 1997 creating architectural and chromatic wall based artworks for private, public and corporate clients using her signature hand dyed and woven technique. She has worked as a commercial textile designer producing a range of furnishing fabrics, cushions, bed linen and throws with various brands and retailers.  In 2005 Ptolemy launched an architectural colour consulting service. A modern-day Bauhaus philosophy of product and art making combined with intelligent colour theory underpins all of her work both creative and commercial.

Throughout her long career, Ptolemy has been exploring the relationship between colour and white thread and this process she is now translating to working on paper. 

The aim is to capture the same immediacy and energy generated in the dye lab as intuitive, colour saturated paintings looking at the relationship between transparency and opacity. Inevitably the language of warp and weft penetrates this work too: bands of vertical and horizontal colour intersect whilst suspended above floating colourfields. 

Ptolemy says 'For a long time I've been interested in two specific things: accidental colour and unconscious colour. It transpires that these two ideas; when filtered through the act of painting, reveal a surprising vivacity and capture a dynamic colourful moment. Over the last three years I have been generating these new works whenever (and wherever) I can, using the act of painting as a personal meditative process. These paintings are about how I feel within a certain place at a specific moment. In complete contrast to the exquisite slowness of the woven artworks these paintings are punches of spontaneous, emotional colour.'

We are pleased to present a collection of original works on paper. For framing information and advice please contact us.
