Vanessa Smith

 

Vanessa Smith‘s work definitely swings towards to the eerie end of the spectrum, and I love that. The way she combines her own paintings with elements of photography feels fresh and unexpected, full of life but also voyeuristic.

The interiors in Smith’s paintings bring together the mysterious and the mundane, whether it be a deserted cafe or dimly-lit living room, these spaces are imbued with an eerie tension. Devoid of people, there are suggestions of life or habitation – a smoking cigarette, a glowing light, a door left ajar – all hint at a fractured narrative.

Luke O’Sullivan

 

Luke O’Sullivan‘s architecturally inspired sculptures and prints are endlessly fascinating. He uses screen printed drawings to create 2D and 3D works that explore undiscovered underground places.

Early interests in Nintendo games, maps, and science fiction movies contribute to the playful nature of my art. I like to describe my process as creating a lego set using my own hand drawn pieces. I use those pieces to create elaborate sculptures of cities, labyrinths and fantastical objects. Exploration and adventure are central to everything I make with each drawing and sculpture contributing to an ongoing catalogue of a strange invented world.

Biscuit Bags

 

This collection of biscuit bags and accessories based off of English biscuit tin classics made me smile! The range includes the Bourbon, custard cream, jammy biscuit, digestive, cookie, and gingerbread man. I appreciate how subtlety designed they are, you’d really need to be within a few feet to notice the detailing and be in on the joke.

Caroline Popham‘s paintings and collages act as a visual diary of sorts. Human habits, routines, and observations are denoted using abstract forms, gradations, and sequential rhythms while color translates mood and action. Popham is also a skilled graphic designer.
