'Colour Bomb' - Sarita Keeler
Born in Australia, Sarita has travelled extensively throughout her life, drawing on cultural and environmental diversity in a number of very different countries. She has been influenced in her use of colours in India, Mexico and Jamaica, whilst gaining an appreciation and confidence with space and the abstract in Australia and the States.
Her earlier work focused on abstract representation of basic shapes using brilliant colours and then progressed to creating mood and movement through the use of subtle colour changes and compositions, viewed from unusual angles as if looking through a lens. Most of her paintings, generally on large canvases using acrylics, are bold and striking but also subtle and complex enough to maintain an enduring attraction.
She studied advanced photography and art at Fine Art Tutors in Hampstead, and studied for a fashion illustration degree at Epsom College.
Her photographic studies helped develop her skills in the use of lighting and angles, especially with black and white images.
'Colour Bomb' - Wendy Heliwell
Wendy Heliwell, Edinburgh based artist. “I grew up in the 80’s surrounded by pop culture, advertising and the growing mass media (Smash Hits, The Face, I.D, MTV and Cosmopolitan.) The instant skin deep pleasure of consumerism engulfed me. Now as an artist I am in the same relationship, interrogating my motives by ripping and disassembling glossy magazines, packaging, tags, receipts and unnecessary purchases.”
As a self-confessed fashionista, Wendy Helliwell celebrates fashion, culture and colour with her contemporary mixed media artworks. Recycling, disassembling and reconstructing, she strives to depict 21st century styles, behaviours and identities.
'Colour Bomb' - Richard Eastwood
Batley born Fine Art Painting graduate (Chelsea School of Art) from the mid ‘70s. Living and working in Kingston-upon-Thames.
“Essentially, as a painter, I am interested in the formal elements of picture making – line, colour,
texture, form, composition etc. and why these things affect and matter to me.
Most of what I have done these past years has been done at the ‘canvas face’ – apply paint,
contemplate, amend, contemplate, reduce, amend, add, embellish, contemplate and repeat over
again until I have orchestrated chance and intention towards what I deem to be a satisfactory
My paintings hover between representational and abstract and many things trigger the work –
Chaucer, bees, prime numbers, anagrams, words, phrase, ambiguities, equilibrium,…….
For the past seven years I have avoided making any representational marks but for now figurative
elements are beginning to interest me once again.”
