Martin’s key interest is man’s relationship to (other) animals. Although his imagery is sometimes dark – capturing the way in which we silence, control or distance ourselves from other animals – his pictures strive for a subtle humour. Martin often undertakes editorial or commercial commissions and his work is regularly featured in international magazines and has been seen in group and solo shows around the world as well as in the National Portrait Gallery London. He has had four books published. More here.

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
