About

Richard Harrison was born in Liverpool in 1954.  Having read Medieval History at Cambridge University, he went on to undertake both BA and MA Fine Art degrees in Painting at Chelsea School of Art.  Harrison’s abstract landscapes are emotionally charged, provoking compositions.

Matteo Massagrande was born in Padua, Italy in 1959. Massagrande is an accomplished painter and a talented engraver. He has exhibited in over one hundred exhibitions internationally in the past 30 years. Massagrande presents us with intimate interiors in varying states of deterioration. These derelict urban spaces, once so full of life, are hauntingly depicted through the use of light, subtlety of palette and cinematic use of perspective.

Tim Wright was born in London in 1959 and has been painting professionally for 30 years. He has worked as a lecturer in Fine Art at several London art schools, particularly Chelsea School Of Art and the Motley Theatre Design School. He lives and works in London.

Alberto Zamboni was born in 1971 in Bologna, where he continues to live and work today. Born into a respected family of artists, his creative inheritance was further nurtured by the vibrant artistic environment of his home city – the birthplace of Annibale, Agostino Carracci and Giorgio Morandi. As well as the countless artists who have lived and worked in Bologna over the centuries, Zamboni’s work is buoyed by references to history’s most innovative practitioners.  The skilful juxtaposition of light and shadow in Zamboni’s creations is reminiscent of Whistler’s hazy views of the river Thames and the nocturnal seascapes of Turner.
