The conditions of the landscape including light, color, texture and atmosphere give meaning to place. The transformation of land and sky through industry and enterprise may be deliberate, or simply the unintended consequence of the human impact on a fragile environment. My work is both a response to and an interpretation of the world, but it also imparts sentiment through projection that comes from a perspective of anxiety about the condition of landscape and nature in our world today. I endeavor to create a fictional response to an observed phenomenon, a metaphor that is infused with a blend of celebration, apprehension and doubt about our place in the natural world. In this manner, this work may allude to the past and simultaneously project into the future. My paintings are a response to the landscape we inhabit with all its complexity and layered meanings." - Philip Govedare  photo 78-245_zpsfb663686.jpg  photo tumblr_n3lvvkBtDD1qeubbbo2_1280_zpsb35c6ef7.jpg

I work in a highly detailed, intensely realistic manner and aim for an absolutely pure and objective likeness. Specific environments and narrative objects are often extremely important ingredients to my portraits as they can help to reflect and reinforce the sitters identity. I seek to convey people in the most understanding, intimate and sympathetic way that I can ." - Andrew Tift  photo kitty1_zpsd86292f2.jpg

Michael Taylor

 photo MichaelTaylor_art_painting_UK12_zps3fb354c6.jpg  photo 261_zps1b27a427.jpg  photo 26_zps8af3bf7a.jpg Michael works quietly and carefully on one painting at a time, spending about three months over each composition. On graduating from Goldsmiths School of Art in 1973, he determined to devote his time to working at a single canvas, while funding himself by working evenings at a pub in Greenwich. When the picture was completed, and after a period of reflection, he created another. These were subsequently exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Encouraged by the response, and selling both pictures, he decided to give up the pub job. He has continued to produce his extraordinary paintings, more or less without a break, until the present. With his wife Caroline, he moved in 1975 to a stone cottage on the edge of the Yorkshire moors, near Haworth. After the birth of their daughter, Ellen (1976), the family moved to a disused chapel in Dorset. In 1980, their son, Richard, was born. Caroline and Michael now live in an old pub in the Dorset village of Childe Okeford.

James Austin Murray

 photo 4everest_lrg_zpsd073f017.jpg  photo 1_zpsa36a1150.jpg  photo 1fornicating_lrg_zps12e50c18.jpg " For the past 20 years, James Austin Murray has worked through many different approaches in his art – from tightly rendered graphite cityscapes to pure white abstraction, works on paper, metal, canvas and board, flat and multi-dimensional. It is through these various incarnations that he has settled upon a pure black palette driven by an automatic and deftly intuitive hand. Murray’s commitment to his painting process, his adoration of pigment and its possibilities is extraordinary. I believe Murray is at the apex his formative, and dare I say narrative, synthesis."
