We featured Penny German’s work in September. Penny German is from, and works at her studio in Northamptonshire.
“my aim is to depict the light captured in objects of a still life and to evoke a feeling of quiet. Painting is a very meditative process and I enjoy following the seasons to compose moments of the year. I strive to paint loosely using only marks that are relevant and necessary.”
A full member of Northampton Town and County Art Society, Chelsea Art Society and an associate member of the RBSA, she exhibits regularly with the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and the Mall Galleries.
She is a regular contributor to The Artist Magazine.
For our second exciting Featured Artist Christy invited James Bristow.
Working from his studio in Northamptonshire, James creates handprinted, one-off, abstract Screen Prints.
James started experimenting with Screen Printing in 2020, setting up a print workshop in a small space at the back of his studio.
Self-taught, he has moved from initial experiments with typography and language, to hypnotic, abstract works, exploring the possibilities of overlapping geometric wave patterns and a generous use of colour.
James’ palette of warm and vibrant colour, geometry, opacity and texture is at the core of his work which incorporates experimentation and happenstance; using accident more than design to create bold, one-off prints that contain a harnessed energy and an overarching feeling of positivity and joy.
Inspired by the Seneca quote "we are waves of the same sea", the Waves series has already attracted collectors from the UK and the USA to Tokyo and Australia. In 2022 Bristow's work 'Waves #11' was selected for the ING
Discerning Eye exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London.
We chose Northamptonshire based painter Sam Wadsworth as our debut Featured Artist. His work is mainly exhibited in London and is part of collections internationally.
His commissioned portraits are highly regarded and in much demand.
A past President of the Painters Fine Art Society he co-curated the Lynne Painter-Stainer Prize from 2017-2019.
Sam paints the things and people around him and is interested in the meaning and connotations of the narratives they generate.
