Helen Beard

p Helen Beard is a ceramic artist, producing hand thrown and hand painted porcelain ware. Working from her central London studio, she takes inspiration from her local environment. " I work primarily as a ceramicist, although my work also includes drawing, painting and illustration too. Working in to my sketchbooks, I draw ordinary people in commonplace situations, always picking out things that put a smile on my face. These quirky observations are then adapted for which ever medium required. My technique for painting onto clay is unique, a method which I have developed to fit my drawing style. Similar to that of watercolour and ink, it has a fluid quality to suit the spontaneity of the sketch. " p

Liu Ye

p p p In Liu Ye's art, humor and sadness blend into a whole. The stillness of his ironic images provide us with a deep sense of detachment and timeless freedom. Part of the post 89' avant garde movement, his art is disinterested in the external flux taking place in modern China. Instead, Liu captures the inner solitude and vulnerability of the artist in face of the enormous changes taking place on a global scale and in Chinese society. ( Continue...) p

Riyas Komu

p p ' Riyas Komu’s photo realist portraits depict ordinary, everyday people from his native Kerala. Komu is a communist but his paintings reflect a less outspoken side to his ideology in which a concern for humanity is portrayed in highly charged images of faces. Komu exhibited in the 2007 Venice Biennale and aims to highlight the changing face of the Indian streets where imported glamour sits alongside inherited poverty. Komu’s portraits cleberate the humble person in the crowd, highlighting beauty in the unremarkable. Komu is one a few Indian artists who have broken away from the orthodoxies of provincialism and the angst-ridden reworking of the subcontinent’s dilemma about independence versus assimilation and appropriation to make artworks that are genuinely concerned with the position of the mass of the people in a rapidly developing and dividing society that is modern India.'
