Jane Radstrom 'Girl In White'

The Girl Series by Jane Radstrom

There is something about using multiple images and poses in one portrait that I just adore! The pastel work by Jane Radstrom remind me of romantic double exposed photography. Focusing on the nuances and expression of body language Jane’s work shows a realistic portrayal of her girls. I like how she’s managed to capture a split second movement looking right into their soul…

Jackie Saccoccio Artwork

Sparking Colour by Jackie Saccoccio

Using paint in various states of liquidity Jackie Saccoccio abstract, colourful paintings comprise of 10-15 layers. Her work is opulent and a joy to see – so much abstraction is too concerned with being an intense, abject experience. I like how the paint flows in different directions and creates a network of untraceable lines. These should definitely brighten up your day…

Jamie North - Concrete

Terraforms: Jamie North

Recently exhibited at The Sarah Cottier Gallery Jamie North’s sculptures ‘Terraforms’ are created using a mix of cement, limestone, marble waste, steel slag and coal ash. He infuses these large industrial forms with plants native to Australia. They grow within the sculpture and slowly infiltrate the man made structures. They remind me of how nature slowly reclaims back decaying abandoned buildings – just beautiful!

A Greenhouse World: Jeremy Miranda

I adore gardening and dream of having my own lush greenhouse so these surreal paintings by Jeremy Miranda appeal to me. Working in acrylic paint Jeremy creates structures radiating warm light within a sparse environment. Inspired by nature, technology and memory I love how inviting his greenhouse like homes are.

Malcolm Ryan - "The Bookshop"

Exclusive: Malcolm Ryan In 2015

Last year I featured my very first artist interview with the wonderful artist Malcolm Ryan, it was one of your favourite posts ever on Brogues In A Coffee Bar! After interviewing him about his beautiful work a friendship has blossomed and he has been kind enough to send me a sneak preview of some new work that he’s been working on… I just had to share!

Inspired by a recent trip to London Malcolm Ryan has captured the hustle and bustle of the city and yet manages to imbue a stillness to the scene, as if time has stopped in the most perfect moment.  His work always give me shivers…

Melting Ceramics: Livia Marin

Oh my! I adore these ceramic sculptures by London based Chilean artist Livia Marin. Ceramic is such a delicate material and to see it melting is just mind boggling! Teapots, mugs, saucers and vases are not what they seem, even their patterns ooze into puddles. How does she do it?!

Your Inner Animal With Charlotte Caron

 If you were an animal what would you be? I discovered Charlotte Caron’s artwork a while ago… She uses photography combined with acrylic painting to create these adorable animal characters. Everyone wears a mask in society and by painting animal faces over portrait’s Charlotte Caron shows just how entwined with those masks we become. The fox looks sneaky, the hawk is harsh, the deer seems gentle…
