Elizabeth is fascinated by the ordinary in life and the people within it; people shopping, passengers waiting for a bus or dog left out in the cold. In this exhibition she celebrates these snapshots of time, asking the viewer to stop and think about how the small things in life can be interesting. ‘I like to think of myself as a modern day William Hogarth observing my world and painting it’
Rachel depicts her thoughts, desires and relationships through a constant creation of monsters and creatures. Though this drawing process Rachel tries to capture the energy and feelings of the moment. Some drawings may emerge as singular characters with the face being the main feature, while other drawings may have more than one character or element depending on her emotional state at the time
Helen's paintings are inspired by video footage and photos found online of women, youth, and alternative music culture in the 80's and 90's. Her expressive, painterly marks are used to create contrasting atmospheres. Some works evoke the euphoric psychedelia of a sweaty crowd at a rave or club; whereas other pieces convey the intimacy of bedrooms. Here gothic/new wave women pose for the camera, with dramatic hairstyles, glamorous make up and favourite band posters.
