From graphic skylines to expressive landscapes and expansive abstracts; from conceptual panoramas to intimate interiors; from the rural to the urban, to the industrial; from printmaking to painting, to intricate and witty new worlds created in 3D sculpture – all ten artists explore and manipulate their surfaces, pushing the boundaries of texture and tone, composition and concept.
These artists, including Wimbledon Art Studios' Richard Knight, Rose Long, LoveJordan, Rob Murray, Alex Rennie, Jane Wachman and Michael Wallner, come together to explore striking contrasts and expose surprising synergies.
