The five images are an excellent example of the great talent which Jack has taught himself over the many years since being bought a set of watercolours for his 21st birthday. His carrer in art began in 1989 when Vettriano submitted two canvases for the Royal Scottish Academy annual show where both paintings sold on the first day and Vettriano was approached by several galleries following.

The controversial artist has since broken records and seen his most famous original works sold for hundreds of thousands with The Singing Butler being sold in auction for £744,500 which was actually rejected in 1992 by the Royal Academy summer exhibition.

His latest feat was that of his exhibition at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery in Glasgow which attracted 132,502 people between September 2013 and February 2014 which beat the previous most visited exhibition featuring the 2010 Glasgow Boys showcase which drew 123,289 vistiors. More than 100 of Vettriano’s paintings from private collections around the world featured in the first major retrospective of the artist’s work.

New Collection of Prints from artist Iain Faulkner

 

Coming to our galleries very soon are a set of four new limited edition prints by Iain Faulkner.

Auction Day by Iain Faulkner
Auction Day by Iain Faulkner

Another superb addition to his portfolio of limited edition works, which no doubt will be sell out editions before long.

Each piece is stunning in it’s own right with amazing levels of detail and the usual crisp white shirts and braces.

Auction Day to the left is a detail image from his Car Auction theme featuring a buyer viewing a stunning  old racing car. The three levels of depth from the man standing in the foreground to the car itself and the image of the car racing in it’s day all show the amazing talents of this great Scottish artist.

Horizon by Iain Faulkner

Horizon, to the right, is another car piece but this time gives the contemplative ideal of standing on a quiet beach, parking your sports car and standing looking out to sea. Again, the levels of detail are quite spectacular giving the viewer the perfect opportunity to lose themselves with the sound of the waves.

They all give the impression of wonder and provoke the thought of entering the painting to be one of the individuals for the time being, finding out what might be happening at that particular moment.

New abstract unique editions by Kerry Darlington

Peacock_Framed-600x1030

Influenced by art and design of the late 19th and 20th century while using modern materials to create her unique style for which has become so well known for.

A Welsh artist, born 1974 in Rhyl, North Wales. Kerry Darlington was heavily inspired by magical fairy tale picture books and stories during her childhood, and had a particular love for Arthur Rackham’s intricate pen and ink work. This influenced her to take a degree in Illustration, with intentions of becoming a children’s book Illustrator. Following this she discovered ‘Art Nouveau’ and the Pre-Raphaelite artists’. She found this work so hauntingly beautiful that it absorbed her and it still has a profound effect on her own art.

For the last seven years Kerry has built a reputation for her original, decorative designs which became hugely popular, focusing primarily on trees and nature.The_Fall_Framed-903x903

She recently took the decision to release her book Illustrations as Unique Edition prints. Her first being the ‘Midnight Garden’ which sold out within a month and her second release ‘Mad Hatters Tea Party’ was so popular that it sold-out rapidly before obtaining high values on the secondary market. Her book illustration work recently included imaginative illustrations adapted from ‘Peter Pan’ by J.M. Barrie and ‘The Magic Faraway Tree’ by Enid Blyton.

In May 2012 she was awarded ‘Best-Selling Published Artist’ at a ceremony by the Fine Art Trade Guild and again recently in 2014.

Closeup_04-300x265On her original pieces, Kerry Darlington works with texture, acrylics and resin. She works in layers to build up depth and create more light. She uses resin as a medium rather than a varnish on the original paintings which lets light penetrate the layers and illuminate them as if they were at the forefront.

With her ‘Unique Editions’, whilst in essence they are prints, each one is some way unique. She creates small 3D additions which are hand-worked individually and adhered to the print. The background is also hand embellished, and all the work has resin hand-applied, making each print look like an original painting. The effect is so good it is often mistaken for original work.Ophelia-920x716

Building on her success she is releasing an ongoing varied selection of her figurative, abstract and illustrative pieces as ‘Unique Editions’ to fulfil demand. This work is of a more personal nature which she has been working on privately over the last 7 years and which will form much of her work today and in the future.

Her work has also recently been featured on Channel 4’s television series Posh Pawn – Paul and Jackie Ellingworth offered the 7ft x 4ft portrait by the Welsh artist. The piece hung in the couples staircase of their home for the past two years and was bought with the help of a small family inheritance and redundancy money Jackie received when she lost her job three years ago.

Mauna_Kea_Framed-903x726In early 2012 they became proud owners of a painting titled ‘Sakura’ (Japanese for cherry blossom) which came from Darlington’s private collection at a total cost of £25,000. Although the couple never wished to part with Sakura, an unfortunate run of bad luck inevitably forced them to contemplate pawning their precious painting to ease their financial difficulties.

The couple were informed that artist Kerry Darlington wanted to do a unique limited edition print of ‘Sukura’. When artists produce limited edition prints of their work, the increased exposure can cause the value of the original to gain significantly. The outcome could not have been better for the couple as their beloved painting could fetch around £90,000+ in the next few months.

Kerry Darlington has had an unbelievable journey over the last 5-6 years. Like any artist she started at the bottom selling works on eBay for a very small sum and moving forward with her imagination and abilities to creating a series of stunning paintings and unique limited editions.Beezyjet-920x918

Stunning new limited edition prints by Stephanie Rew

thewhiteroom

Edinburgh based artist, Stephanie’s strength lies in being able to capture the female form in all her glorious guises, whether clothed or not, with sideward glances catching passing thoughts and emotions.

A graduate of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee, her work hangs in collections across the world, including in The Royal Bank of Scotland’s headquarters in Edinburgh, Standard Chartered PLC in London, HongKong, Dubai and P&O Ferries.

Stephanie’s most recent move towards costume painting is another element that strikes a chord with the viewer. The elegance and serenity captured is complimented by her lightness of hand to show delicate fabrics draped across the figures.

ARTIST STATEMENTScarletKimono

“My primary subject matter is the female figure. Always painted with a sense of ambiguity; faces half hidden, with the human form often just emerging from the darkness. The human anatomy is the predominant motif to my work and I have developed my style with the using drapery and pattern in combination with the figure.

After studying the society portraits of James McNeil Whistler and woodblock prints of the Japanese Ukiyo-e, I have become increasingly interested in pattern and design as well as depth and form, and have embarked on a series of works combining these attributes.

reclineTone and form as well as strong light and colour is what inspires me, concentrating on the juxtaposition of tonality and texture whilst keeping a private, reflective mood with the work. Recently I have returned to my interest in dance and have been working with aerial dancers in their rehearsal space in Edinburgh, striving to capture in oil paint, the elegance, strength and drama to be found in this type of dance discipline.

I regularly travel around my home country of Scotland, My husband Tom is a keen hillwalker and my children both love the outdoors. This has given me the opportunity to find another inspiration for my painting. The changeable and often wet weather to be found in the north of the UK can give the landscape an otherworldy feel which I try to capture with oil paint. These landscapes are void of colour, much like nature at times, and heavy on atmosphere and mood. Since I am painting places I truly love, it makes it easy to give these works the same amount of detail and consideration that my figurative painting demands.

I have always been heavily influenced by the Baroque style of oil painting and utilises a combination of Old Masters techniques with my own alla prima style. The practice of glazing is important to the finished article – creating the illusion of an inner glow to the paint. Caravaggio’s trademark use of chiaroscuro and strong colour created by glazing techniques has inspired my work for the last decade.”darkreflections

BIOGRAPHY
Born in 1971, Stephanie Rew was raised in the historic city of Edinburgh, Scotland leaving for Dundee in 1990 to study at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art. After graduating she returned to her hometown for a few years before moving to Brighton in 1996. Work and the pursuit of gallery representation took her to London in 1998 where she held the first of 3 successful exhibitions before moving back to Edinburgh in 2002. She now lives with her husband Tom and two children and works full time as a painter in her studio in the Leith Shore area of Edinburgh.

She first became interested in drawing and painting at an early age, showing ability beyond her years. Drawing images from memory kept her amused through out her childhood and once she reached her final years at high school it was obvious that art college beckoned. She enrolled at Duncan of Jordanstone and followed her passion for figurative painting – citing Alison Watt and Jenny Saville as her inspiration at that time. As well as concentrating on life drawing and paintings she also sat in and sketched with the Dundee Repertory Dance Company during rehearsals, which started a relationship with dance and her paintings.

whitekimonoSince graduating, her career path took her to Brighton where she involved herself with the Arts Festival there, organising and hanging large group shows in empty office buildings. This gave her the first chance since college to paint full time and exhibit her work. These works lead to John Lewis Partnership taking 50 original charcoal drawings of her dancers to sell at their flagship Oxford Street Store. The funds raised by this, in turn, helped her put together her first solo show at the Sussex Arts Club and found a London gallery to represent her. Since then she has continued to widen her audience, winning the Elizabeth Greenshields Award in 1995 and the RGI New Artist Award 2009 and acquiring an ever growing list of collectors – P&O Ferries, Royal Bank of Scotland and Standard Chartered plc to name a few. She exhibits across the UK and sells well in the rest of Europe and the US also.

Impressions of London by Alexander Millar

20130510-202748.jpgVery occasionally in the art world, one is privileged to witness history in the making. Alexander Millar and his evolution as an artist over the past three years is one such occasion.

Millar, an entirely self-taught artist began his career more than twenty years ago, painting watercolours and taking inspiration from landscape artist Ashley Jackson. But it is arguably in the last three years that Alexander Millar has started to become one of the most significant artists of the contemporary art world.

Starting in 2010, Millar was invited to exhibit at the Great North Museum: Hancock in Newcastle; an exhibition which took Millar’s work to new heights. His skilful depiction of buildings, cranes, viaducts and docks which dominate the characters walking or cycling past. 20130510-202957.jpgThese elements of ‘real life’ were increasingly present in the scenes, and he expertly began to pull the story away from single figure or couples, the dads with kids and dogs; to create the big picture, the context.

Being hailed as the Lowry of the north-east by respected art critic Sue Steward was just the beginning for Millar. Following his revered ‘Working Man’ exhibition in Newcastle, Millar went on to exhibit a series of work devoted to the working men and women of Sheffield and its steel industry presenting this work at the Magna Trust, a museum on the site of Templeborough Steelworks.

Now painting towards another major museum show, this collection of London scenes marks a juncture in Millar’s work, as he transitions from ‘gadgie-man’ to an artist who is drawing comparisons to Lowry, Turner and Monet.20130510-203120.jpg

The stunning collection of London scenes are available as limited edition prints, signed and numbered by the artist in only 95 edition. If you would like to view the new collection click here to visit our website.
