Jerwood Drawing Prize PV 2016

This years' Jerwood Drawing Prize exhibition is yet again a shining example that drawing is well and truly alive!

Artist of the month – Louise Zhang

Paintings and sculptures that fascinate and repulse, but when you get close, these bizarre organic works are anything but a delight.   At first glance, Louise Zhang's work is drippingly sweet and seductive. Her use of neon-tastic, artificial colours are exciting and alluring to the eye, but as you begin to study the blob-like forms,…

Artist of the month – David Schnell

Burst into summer with an explosion of fantastic colour from a unique visionary German painter I first encountered David Schnell's work during my uni days, whilst totally obsessed with colour, shapes and the landscape.

Dreamy, psychadelic art from an Emmy Award winning artist Californian Seonna Hong is colourful to say the least! Her bizarre, marbled, dreamy landscapes are very emotive and expressive and are built on her wonderful imagination. There is also a deep consideration of the minimal and naturalistic landscapes she creates, that are not only filled with…
