paintings drawings 

Glauce Cerveiras paintings are complex and visually arresting pictorial constructs in which the pleasures of form and pattern are pursued to a point of extremity, elements layered and juxtaposed in configurations which seem willfully perverse. The images are intriguing and the viewer is teased into deciphering them through a labyrinth of shapes, colour and light-reflecting glass beads.

Georgie Hoptons recent paintings depict sculptures by famous artists: Degas, Ernst, Bourgeois and Moore. These large images are painted in silver or bronze and stand against a grey background. They are given an iconic pictorial presence beyond their initial existence as figurative sculpture. They now assume a completely new identity.

Sarah Woodfine makes meticulous pencil drawings of imaginary birds and figures. The strange and sometimes disturbing subjects contain an audacious fairy-tale quality. The images float on a large sheet of paper accentuating the unreality of the drawings: no spatial reference, no context to identify them.
