Mariya Ali Ameen

Mariya identifies herself as a storyteller who draws from life experiences and observations. Communicating cultural contexts and influences; her work revolves around human emotions, spontaneous reactions, situational anomalies and thought processes. For Mariya; unfolding a complex narrative through a simple and light-hearted visual to engage the audience is the key. She strongly relies on supporting… Continue reading Mariya Ali Ameen

Whether painting from photographs, or directly in front of the subject, I like taking liberties with colour, and making… Continue reading Clive Dawson

Esther Yasmin Groeneveld

I am an artist whose work often reflects a magical realist nature; diving into the depth of complex ideas and simplifying them into a unified piece. At other times, the pure satisfaction of observing my environment and capturing my observations through drawing or painting is enough to keep me happily creatively occupied. My oil paintings,… Continue reading Esther Yasmin Groeneveld

Ruth Hawkins

During the initial development of this series of paintings I became fascinated and inspired by a photograph I had taken of an industrial flytrap. The sensation and emotions associated with being trapped have become a central theme of my work. I am motivated by how I might provoke the sensation of entrapment and confinement in… Continue reading Ruth Hawkins

Chris Langley

My paintings explore the landscape in a variety of formal and conceptual ways. Whether building them up through layering observed plants or mountains, or from patterns, I seek to ensure that they have a sense of aliveness or character, maybe even feel a little mad. My source material comes from photographs I have taken, mostly… Continue reading Chris Langley

Colin Wiles has lived in Cambridge for almost thirty years and has been painting for about twenty years. He is self-taught, (like Herbert Lom in The Ladykillers, “I just sort of picked it up”).

Gerry Wilmer

I love sketching outdoors using a water soluble ink pen and watercolour in a small book. Indoors I work on large scale paper, using acrylic paints, often basing the work on a sketch I have done, or a memory of something I have seen or felt. I then go on to paint in oils on… Continue reading Gerry Wilmer
