‘ A small farming community in Inakadate, Japan, has devised a unique tourist attraction as the ultimate makeover for their area – rice murals. The villagers have been creating impressive imagery by planting rice plants of varying colors on 2,500 sq. meters of land which have been reeling in thousands of tourists to their area. The murals created by these enterprising farmers included pictures of a traditional Japanese warrior as well as Western icons like Napoleon. ‘ More here.

‘ I am truly part of the Blue peter generation, I just love making and decorating, whatever the medium or subject. My father the late David Lawes, was a Scenic Artist working for theater companies such as the Royal Opera House & ENO and this wet my appetite for working with many mediums, production design & all things theatrical. My interest in Tech-effect costume also blossomed from a young age when he worked with the amazing costume designer Eiko Ishioka. My mother was a brilliant potter, and that inspired me to work with clay, to sculpt & to model make. I went on to study at Chelsea College of Art & Design in 1994 where I honed my skills in painting, sculpting, design & illustration. ‘ – Natasha Lawes

Born 1980 in London, Chloe Early grew up in Cork, Ireland. Since graduating from NCAD Dublin in 2003 she has pursued her painting practice and exhibited regularly in Cork, Dublin and London. Early’s current works are oil paintings on aluminium and canvas. The paintings progress through the introduction of a series of objects which work alongside each other to create a parallel universe. A universe where glaciers sit cheek by jowl with architecture, or palm trees grow out of building sites. Little figures inhabit these peculiar worlds, often alone or in couples, they seem oblivious to their surroundings. The bronzed and beautiful figures bring a sense of escapism, glamour and kitsch into the paintings and contrast with the architectural backdrops.
