MATTHEW CHAMBERS

 

Matthew Chambers is a graduate of the Bath School of Art & Design, and an MA graduate of the Royal College of Art. In 2006 he was awarded the Ceramic Review Prize at Ceramic Art London, and since that time his extraordinary sculptures have held their place as the most unique and technically complex in contemporary ceramics.

 

Each work is constructed from individually thrown circular sections of pre-coloured clay, which are brought together to form swirling, concentric designs of astonishing precision. The artist’s passion for constructivist art is evident in the structure and geometry of each piece, and their intricacy is enhanced by a subtly changing palette of stains and oxides.

JUDY BUXTON

 

Buxton is a Fine Art graduate of both Falmouth College of Art and the Royal Academy Schools in London. She has been awarded The Hunting Art Prize, The Royal Watercolour Prize, the Gold Medal from the Worshipful Company of Painter-Stainers, and the Sir Cyril Sweet Prize, for which she received the honour of the Freedom of the City of London.

 

Deep texture, soft colour and the vigorous application of paint, laid down predominantly with a palette knife, are the defining characteristics of her work. As a landscape painter, she draws inspiration from the unique moorland, coast and rivers of the Lizard Peninsula where she has lived and worked for the past twenty-five years. En plein air, and in a studio thick with thrown colour and residual oil paint, she creates luxurious paintings of sea, sky and hedgerow, as well as still-life paintings of fading summer flowers. In addition, Judy’s lifelong passion for horses is reflected in a series of beautiful equine paintings, which translate the spirit and energy of these dynamic creatures into rich marks and liquid colour and canvas.
