‘ 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

Chloe Early

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.

Chris Ritson

‘ It is hard to continue to find and produce only beauty in environmental art. There is the wonder of nature experience and the merger of pop and recycling art, but often the planetary diagnosis is a downer. Chris Ritson seeks to explore the darker story of our relationship with the natural world. The work is political rather than ornamental. There are sophisticated but not clear ideas behind the photographic animal replica collages, crystal growth displays, and video displayed here. One will find a disturbing environmental messages made.’ (via RWM, ArtBusiness)

Heike Weber

‘ The perhaps most fascinating feature of Heike Weber’s work remains hidden from the exhibition visitor: namely the fact that to begin with at least, everything is white, immaculately white. Before the actual drawing act begins, before Heike Weber tackles the site with bright-colored permanent felt markers, the entire room has already been transformed into a three-dimensional sheet of paper. The artist’s temporary workplace is covered in white PVC and makes up a projection room in which the viewer can recapitulate for him/herself the genesis of the floor and ceiling drawings as a poetic after-image. A white cube that only exists as a statement, as an aesthetic backdrop that inevitably vanishes, effaced by the drawing that appears in situ. This provisional arena gradually fills with reductional graphic gestures, which in a leisurely, but nevertheless labor-intensive process floods the room. A flood that swells over several days, beginning with space-determining coordinates that slowly invade the space available. The gently flung-out lines begin at the pillars and niches, steps or corners and are propelled into the room, gathering an unimagined force and drive. The minimized graphic lineation and the smallest of expressive tools turn into a flat all-over that breaks around barriers. Gesture gains serial dynamism within the framework of the white cube and is bundled into a swinging, space-flooding motif. ‘
