'Prince Charming'

 

Artist:                      Sarah Jane Szikora

Edition:                   Signed Limited Edition Giclee 199/295, professionaly framed with certificate

Measurements:     H 660mm W 735mm D 30mm

Price:                       £285.00

 

 

Szikora, born and raised in Gateshead, North East England, discovered her passion for art at only 4 years old where, after an operation in hospital she sat on her bed drawing pictures despite having bandages over her eyes!


Studying illustration at Northern art colleges, she went on to make 3D sculptures as a small business venture and in 1993 decided to become a professional artist, and has never looked back.

 

Exaggerated figures feature as the main subjects in the artwork created by Sarah-Jane. Each painting offers an insight to the artist’s world, delivered with a quirkiness and wit that makes Sarah-Jane’s work instantly recognizable.

 

Commenting on her fat and thin figures she says, “There is an obsession in our society about appearance; everyone is on a diet or opting for cosmetic improvements: “Why is it we dislike ourselves so much?”

 

At first glance, Sarah-Jane’s art can appear care-free but scratch the veneer and you soon discover that her work offers a thoughtfulness about the human condition that first appearances betray.

 

“My objective is to find the common thread that connects us and I hope that empathy is at the heart of my work”

 

 

'The Bathroom'

 

Artist:                      Sam Barnes

Edition:                   Signed Limited Edition Giclee 45/180, professionaly mounted and framed

Measurements:     H 430mm W 615mm

Price:                       £150.00

 

 

The inspiration for Sam's paintings is gathered from her observations of life and people, in particular her own family life around the kitchen table.

 

Her studies are full of energy, wit and colour and her wonderful cheeky sense of humour is evident in all her paintings.

 

"A once gallery owner myself, I understand the process of making work - from initial thought & sketches, to easel, and finally into someone’s home.  The sparkle dust throughout the various stages is simple – do I love what I’m making?  If not you won't be seeing it.

 

I’m an artist that makes paintings, drawings & prints directly from my tummy, not my head.

 

A practicing artist for over 20 years, I learned my trade at Edinburgh College of Art in the early 90’s and since have worked in various studios in London, Hampshire & now Suffolk with short stints of time in America & New Zealand."

Graham Clarke, artist, author, illustrator and humorist is one of Britain's most popular and best-selling printmakers.

 

He has created some five hundred images of English rural life and history, of the Bible and of the Englishman's view of Europe.

 

Born in 1941, Clarke's upbringing in the austerity of war-time and post-war Britain, made him reliant on his own imaginative resources. Responding to the comedy of everyday life, he brings his own unique brand of humour to his interpretation of past and present history through the eyes of the common man.

 

Graham Clarke has attracted universal admiration for his revival of beautiful, hand-coloured prints in the tradition of Thomas Rowlandson. The famous 'arched top' etchings, with which Graham Clarke established a widely successful reputation in Britain and overseas, came to public attention in 1973 when the first of these, Dance by the Light of the Moon, was exhibited in London at the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Show, and sold out.

 

Examples of his art works are held by Royal and public collections, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, the British Museum, the Tate Gallery and the National Library of Scotland in the United Kingdom, as well as by Trinity College, Dublin, the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., the New York Public Library and the Hiroshima Peace Museum.

 

Many more are to be found on the walls of private homes all over the world, collected systematically by devotees, as well as singly by ordinary art lovers who "know what they like".

 

For over thirty five years Clarke has sustained a remarkable evolutionary development of his work, while remaining true to a philosophy of life and to a democratic ideal which he was already formulating as a schoolboy.
