Nici Bungey

Nici Bungey

This beautiful featured piece is by Nici Bungey. Nici uses ambiguous geometric shapes as a means to explore our inner thoughts and memories. She works largely with paper and is fascinated by its rawness and by exploring the dialogue between spaces, edges, shapes, form and colour in their work. 

 

Ceal Warnants

Ceal Warnants

This piece is by contributing artist Ceal Warnants who graduated from The Royal College of Art MA in 2008. Her work explores the dark side of British culture focusing particularly on ideas of youth and innocence. Creating subversive images of childhood that question nostalgic, saccharine depictions of growing up, their work is both darkly comic and disturbingly truthful.

The cover piece is by Patrick Hughes who has been playing with dimensions for over 50 years. Their reverspective masterpieces have been revolutionary in the way artists have come to understand depth and dimensions. The dimensions in their postcard are exemplary of this. This work is both happy and complex. Colourful and youthful but with a sharp intelligence. 

Max Renneisen

Max Renneisen

This piece is one of three Max Renneisen pieces included in this years auction. Max is a German painter. It is vital to his paintings and drawings to build on the legacy of the old masters and to explore the painterly possibilities of the imitation of nature in the light of modern imagery and pictorial media. His pieces were understandably very popular at auction.
