Round About Us, 2020
Oil on linen, 220 x 265mm
Loosely described as landscapes, or occasionally still life, Milli Jannides terrains exist outside of time and geography. Her works begin with an idea of a scene, whether fictional (imagined from literature) or experienced first person. These scenes function as a hook, a way to start each painting, then the process takes over, moving toward the recognition of something in the 'rectangle of oily mess'.
Crystal - line, 2020
Oil and acrylic on linen with paperclay attachment, 1000 x 800mm
Nicola Farquhar's energetic paintings map the materiality and biology of both the human form and the painted surface. Drawing on compositional conventions of traditional portraiture, patterning, and the abstract language of scientific diagrams (especially those that describe the movement and effects of light), Farquhar's paintings are part formal studies in space, part sci-fi bodies, part chimerical landscapes.
