Lynda Howitt‘s lifelong love for the ocean is reflected in her paintings. Her work radiates a warmth that is compelling, perhaps due to the universal qualities of her subject matter, but also because of her unique vision, in which the opposite elements of nature are successfully merged as to become a single entity. There is a sense of weightlessness and light that embodies her work. Artworks of softly modulating hues, lifting highlights and strokes suggesting clouds or waves breaking, the sea and sky are interwoven, barely distinguishable. She has less interest in depicting specifics of nature than in evoking a sense of emotion.

” I started late in photography. I hadn’t studied graphic design: I started in an ad agency as a copywriter. I didn’t really have a visual culture, but rubbed shoulders with art directors, photographers, and understood that my main interest was basically visual, even though I had no technical skills whatsoever. As a copywriter, I was denied access to images; I started taking pictures to compensate for the frustration. And in adworld, where things always end up with a logo in the corner, photography allowed me to create more freely. I was probably around 30 when I got started, and soon realized I was really keen, almost obsessively in fact.” – Rémi Noël

‘In NEW WAVES, Takashi Homma presents a series of photographs of the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii spanning thirteen years. The photographs of waves depict the coastline continuously un-changed by climate or seasonal time. By reproducing and revisiting the same landscape repeatedly, Homma captures focused reflections of the interaction between pictorial and mental space, the waves and our selves.’
Roger Hiorns’ sculptural work generates and inhabits interstices between dissentient ideas: construction and destruction; the theological and the technological; temporality and permanence; authoritarian control and organic spontaneity. His objects are threaded with an unease that ties them, and our experience of them, to the amorphous, unrelenting global anxiety which suffuses our everyday understanding and reality.
