Paintings

Caroline Halliday

Social and political implications cannot be detached from objects. I am interested in how I can re-arrange the ‘thing’, so its symbolic connotations emerge or are contradicted. My work combines sculpture, paint and installation, and can be both formal and visceral, anarchic and structured, irreverent and challenging. I take objects to pieces or cut them with a jigsaw -chairs, drawers, earth, ironing boards, books, language, fairy tales, and filmic images/text- and questioning…

I’m a Sussex-based artist who enjoys working in different media. My watercolours are inspired by nature, including our beautiful South Downs. My prints are mostly made from paintings done on my travels. I regularly take painting and hiking trips in mountains such as the Alps. I make mosaic mirrors and linocuts and also carve in wood. I am happy to undertake commissions, including for customised paintings and mosaics.

Penny Mechen

Creating a 2D image of a 3D subject can be frustrating and torturous as often as it is satisfying and joyous, but what I love about it is that it is always totally absorbing. You will see from my work that I enjoy different subject matter as well as different mediums and styles. I find that different mediums suit different subjects, and switching between all these things keeps the work spontaneous and fresh-for me as well as, I hope, for those viewing it. I am passionate abou…

I am inspired by the beauty in everyday life, nature and the moments we share. I enjoy experimenting with multiple media. I like playing with light, colour and texture to explore the relationship between what is seen and what the mind perceives. Instagram: beautyoutsidethelines

Wendy Standen

I retired from primary teaching in 2002, having always been in charge of Art and Design in the various schools in which I taught. I had great opportunities to learn skills across the wide range of arty crafty subjects (everything from pottery to lino cuts from woodwork to embroidery!) On retirement I finally had the energy to explore and develop my own interests. Initially I went to life drawing and sculpture classes, loving creating the human form in clay and stone and this…

Paul Michaelides (known as Aris)

My interest in paintings started at an early age whilst living in my native country of Cyprus. A Greek family that were close friends had three children, all of them talented, one of which was an artist a few years older than me. I would accompany him on his painting trips and was fascinated by the blank canvas, the scene, and then the developing picture. He then went on to study abroad and is now the Leading Sceneographer in Cyprus theatre. We are still in touch. However, as…

Gill Dixon

Originally trained as a Stage Designer, for many years I worked in costume design and production for the two London opera houses. Recently I have been creating paintings, embroideries and textile based pieces in response to my immediate environment; the river Adur in all its changing moods, the tidal ebb and flow under the looming presence of the South Downs and even the  sun-baked streets of Shoreham. Most recently I have been  working in acrylics making paintings and drawin…

Julia Ann Field

I paint plein air Landscapes, Sacred-scapes and saucy little “Willendorfs” based on the Paleolithic Venus figurine. ​

Wenche Fagerheim

I was born and grew up north of the Polar Circle in Norway. The contrasts of this special environment; the dark blue sparkling winters with northern light dancing passionately above us, and the light pastel colored summers when the sun never goes down, have influenced my work a great deal. I moved to England in 2006 to study BA in Fine Art, Painting, which I completed in 2009. I was based in West Sussex until beginning of 2017. I now live and work in Harstad, Northern Norway….

Tim Gwyther

The underlying theme in my work is the relationship between past and present.: pathways and markers that delineate the landscape;  cities revealing their memories in shadows and decay. Places named in a different age –dislocated now from their origins. Stolen meanings and associations with art from the past. A dynamic exchange with ancient sites and artefacts. Much of my work originates in Cornwall and I am represented there at the Riverbank Gallery in Newlyn

Tim Huitson

I have been painting for many decades but have only recently exhibited to a wider public. Previously, exhibitions and sales were at my home and garden studio on Shoreham Beach. Formal artistic education since school started with the Aesthetics course at university and since then continued with lengthy one-to-one contact with artists who have developed specific techniques. The canvases mainly inhabit an area in the interstices between pure abstract and representations of lands…

Susanne Hopkinson

I work mainly in watercolour and pen although I have dabbled in pencil crayon and pastels, with the odd foray into oils.  I have lived in Sussex for over twenty years and feel that the Downs have a special place in my paintings , hence the multitude of sheep.  There is a rather illustrative edge to my painting and sometimes I venture beyond what I see and instead use my imagination . Hence the paintings of ladies with dogs or the exuberant floral depictions. My Shop Seasonal…

Sue Hawksworth

I have long been inspired by the effect man and nature have on the landscape. Light and shadow play an important part in my work enabling the pattern and form of the landscape to be revealed. I have explored these themes in a range of media including monoprint and collograph. I enjoy working with different materials and processes, and the flexibility of mixing media enables me to explore more abstract forms. Recently, I have been making drawings of ruined buildings, including…

Scilla Allen

After leaving school i went to Worthing Art College from there i went to Newport Art College in South Wales where i studied Graphics/Illustration which i really loved. Our teaching was based on really looking and seeing in order to be able to draw really well.   I loved the process of Litho while i was there and although this was difficult to pursue when not at college i have done a course of this taught by a friend at North Star Studios in Brighton. At that time i was doing…

Idiosyncratic images of Sussex from a local artist.

Steve Mason (ArtBySteve)

I have always been tempted to turn ideas into paintings. Following convention I haven’t always taken that path. For years I have been producing paintings that I thought I should produce. Paintings that were traditional and realistic. Now into my second year of a BA (hons) Fine Art degree, I am letting rip. Not just painting but experimenting with sculpture and photography, seeing things, not just in my mind, but seeing things in the environment. Trying different things in dif…

Sarah Duffield

I try to paint my emotional connection to a landscape rather than a photographic representation. Often the way light is interacting with a landscape dictates the colours I use to describe it – morning light is pink and peach, the earth is often blue and cold while at Sunset the light is red or orange, grass is warmer and colours richer. People have a strong affinity with colour and often don’t realise how closely connected to emotion it is. When someone looks at one of my pai…

Roger George Deller

I was born in a lunatic asylum in the middle of an air raid. The Luftwaffe had bombed the maternity hospital but spared the asylum fortuitously giving refuge to my desperate mother. We spent the next six months living on platform two of Moorgate Tube Station. The V1s drove us out of London and we evacuated ourselves to the safety of North Wales. Respite, then the V2’s struck, silent and insidious harbingers of evil. Again we fled, this time to an isolated farm somewhere in So…

He…

Robert A Ford

I am interested in social issues and create work which addresses subjects that affect humanity.My work is very varied in use of different mediums 2D, 3D, and spoken word, I often include text in and on my art.I construct my paintings in a long and laborious fashion, often making prints from the first effort and then working on them more. Nearly all my paintings are available as originals or as Giclee prints which reproduce extremely well and are often difficult to distinguish…

Mervyn Wallis

My most recent work is in stained glass and I am combining my interest in digital media with silk screen printing sand blasting.I begin by selecting a series of images and then with Photoshop adjust tonality contrast etc and convert them into half tone images which can then be transferred to silk screen and printed onto glass.In addition I can use the screens to produce images which can be sand blasted onto the glass.

Malcolm Gillespie

Malcolm is overwhelmed by the energy of life, the powerful need of creatures, plants to exist. Birth, sex, death, everything that powers life. He loves oil colour on a canvas, the smell, the way it’s moved with a hog hair brush. He loves the richness of the earth colours but not exclusively. Malcolm has always painted as much as time would allow, since he was about 5 years old. In many ways the most significant experience was seeing the film The Horses Mouth when he was about…

Karin Hay White

Most of my work is based on inspiration from modernist architecture and industrial design.Also I`m interested in the contrast between rural and the urban landscape. I use geometry, colour and form to explore the tension between pure abstraction and pictorial representation. My work is held in private collections both in UK and abroad.

Kim Adele Fuller

I live on the Sussex coast in Shoreham by sea and paint seascapes, landscapes, coastal and abstract themes. I am inspired by the ever-changing nature of the sea and the sky that surround me and try to reflect this in my paintings. I particularly enjoy the dramatic, yet transient effects of atmosphere and light and liberating feeling of the space and tranquility of the shoreline. I work primarily in watercolour as I feel it has a translucency and vibrancy hard to match in any…

After a varied period of freelance work, including photography, in London I moved in to teaching and running the department of visual communications at Northbrook College. M…

Frans de Leij

I did not go to art school – in fact, I trained as a biologist at the University of Wageningen (The Netherlands). Although, I am a self-taught painter, I have gained a lot of inspiration from the work of other artists, notably from impressionist water-colourists like Edward Seago, John Yardley, Edward Wesson, Nina Engle and Trevor Chamberlain. The work of these painters breathes an air of directness and freshness that is so attractive about watercolour and almost impossible t…

Daniel Allenby-Byrne

My intricate detailed geometric art is a passion that has consumed my dreams and waking life, the more I create the more I wish to create. My aim is to illustrate the point of lucidity between dream state and waking life, the point of dawn and dusk when the light can play tricks on the eye. I am a UK based artist living in Sussex with my wife and children, we live on the edge of the South Downs and some ten minutes’ walk from the sea. I feel blessed with my wonderful surround…

Chris Dawson

Creativity is a key factor in all my work either as a product designer (my original trade), cartoonist or fine artist. As an artist, I simply paint for my own interest and pleasure and try to create something that people will enjoy and respond to. No subject is safe – a landscape, the human figure, a bunch of flowers. To this I will often include some form of creativity and produce something that is different and thought-provoking. Humour is also an inspiration. All paintings…

Angela Edwards

I am a contemporary artist working mainly in oil paint on wooden panels and charcoal on paper. I graduated with a BA in Fine Art in 2014 and work from a studio @ West Street loft in Shoreham. In the twenty-first century it is always interesting to see a fine artist conflating traditional materials with new technology.  This is the case in the work of Angela Edwards whose prime medium is oil paint on board or canvas and sometimes charcoal on paper, with the methodology of her…
