Sara Rushton shows her Stunning work on bGallery

Image
I work in mixed  media and draw on a broad  range  of  inspirations, from Nature, Texture  and Patterns, Stained  Glass, Mandalas, colour  form.........
Many abstract works develop organically  and  grow  as the piece  develops. They are intended  to work on several  levels, using  symbolism and imagery that  narrates  a 'story' or  the  theme  of  the  painting  and  hopefully  engage  the viewer  in seeing  different  things  in the  work.
I also  work on Landscapes  as I  am especially  inspired  by  the beautiful landscape in which I live.

Last December she was one of only five artists from Great Britain invited to take part in the Lights In The Winter exhibition at La Galleria Pall Mall, in London's west end, which also featured a total of 30 artists from around the world.
Invitations quickly followed to exhibit in Monaco, Vienna and Nice.

Sue has been approached by Harvey Nichols to display at their Fifth Floor Restaurant in the flagship store in Knightsbridge, London and will also be taking part in the Edinburgh Art Fair in November 2014.

David Oatley's New Artwork ...

DAVID OATLEY 21-10-1950. Yes 63, Self taught artist. Originally from Shepton Mallet, Somerset. Educated at Wells Cathedral School where I developed a love of painting, especially architectural scenes and landscapes. I was lucky enough to be taught by Peter Coate, a well known landscape painter. After leaving school and college, I spent 38 years in the construction industry. In the year 2000, I started to become very ill and by 2008 had to stop work because of a very debilitating muscle wasting disease. From then on I took up water colour painting, and have, I think improved year on year. I have now sold painting, internationally, nationally and have become well known in the North Cotswolds, which is now very much my home. I am surrounded by wonderful architecture and beautiful rolling hills every one a painting. I am now very disabled and add to my limited income, by selling my, originals, prints, postcards, blank cards and very importantly commissions of landscapes and architecture, at the moment my commission rate is a very palatable £250.00. I hope to receive many commissions. I just can't stop painting!

Welcoming Gillian Hunt A.R.P.S and her stunning Artwork -










Gillian Hunt is a Macro Photographic Artist living and working in Perthshire.
Person statement (followed by Bio)
As a child amongst nature I found a land full of magic lit with incredible peace and joy. I found a place of belonging where there is no judgement, no pressure and no time limits and without realising a place where the rest of the world falls gently into place. This 'communing' with nature has continued into my adult life and I spent time every single day out amongst the flora and fauna that surrounds where I live . . . either just being amongst it, or studying it, or, when the time is right - photographing it.
I have now found that through my photographic art I can actually re-create the feeling of congruence and magic I first experienced as a child and now I want to lead people down to the bottom of their garden and introduce them to that magic teach them how to look at the light and the shade and perhaps allow them time to find their own congruence for a time whilst they are involved in my images.
Full Bio available on my website . . .
Faerie Ballet - the work . . .
Faerie Ballet - A Year in a Day in the Secret Life of the Faeries
Ever wondered what the Faeries get up to at the bottom of the garden? Well maybe this panel will shed a little 'light' and magic onto that very subject.
These images, photographed over three years at various locations and at various times throughout the day, depict Faeries in the ‘Ballet’ of their lives.




Elisabeth Rittinger Heffa at bGallery


“I am fascinated by the intricate visual manifestations and patterns of life:
People, plants, animals, the elements, rocks, landscapes,... their energy, their moods in a particular moment.
In my work I draw “snap shots” of these moods. Filtered through my own experience , I try to evoke these feelings and communicate that energy to the viewer.”
Elisabeth Rittinger grew up in Austria. She studied painting in Vienna in the Meisterklasse of Prof. Gustav Hessing and graduated from The Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna.
She came to Canada in 1982 and now lives and works in Toronto.
