Meet the Artists:
Lok Kerk Hwang, still Lifes. “I am intrigued by unwanted and neglected objects. They are something very real that everybody has seen in real life.”
Peto Poghosyan, urban scenes: “The use of signs, billboards and cars is not an end in itself. I emphasise one element or another to describe an atmosphere and tell a story.”
Nicholas Phillips, interior scenes: “The creative part of my work lies in setting up the photo shoot: how to configure the moment that will be depicted in the painting.”
Peter Jablokow, objects: “I’m always on the lookout for a strong light source with crisp shadows and, hopefully, dappled light over all the messy machine parts.”
Joe Dowden, landscapes: “I probably work less on mood than most other painters, and more on light and visual impact. ”
Linda Doll, figures: “Body language and the story it tells have always fascinated me. ”
Marie-Christine Alunni and Bernard Lemayeur, landscapes: “We painted our watercolours following our inspiration as we happened on different locations during our walks.”
David Lobenberg, self-portrait: “I use whatever method it takes to create an exciting portrait!”
