Stunning New Spring 2015 Collection


Trinity by Caroline ShottonEnid Hutt Gallery are delighted to showcase a stunning new collection of artwork from some of our top artists as well as some new additions.

Spring is in the air and that can only mean one thing – the release of a whole new selection of stunning limited edition art.

Our new releases continue to showcase works from some of the country’s finest contemporary artists. The collection welcomes back old favourites such as Kerry Darlington, Craig Davison, Caroline Shotton and Peter Smith. It also introduces a brand new artist – realist painter Andrew Kinsman.

Cafe de Paris by Andrew KinsmanAndrew Kinsman is a self-taught artist and musician. Andrew Kinsman has painted commissions for celebrities and royalty alike, and has recorded soundtracks and albums with music novelties such as Noel Gallagher and English Rock Band, Kasabian.

His new collection was inspired by a painting which Andrew completed in 2009, called ‘Jeff’. This painting was in turn inspired by a lucid dream. The real life experience which later manifested into that dream was derived from a gig he did that same day. In between performances, bubbles were being blown against a black backdrop which acted as the stage. Kinsman was fascinated by the intense colours in their reflections. The dream saw an old man blowing a bubble showing as much detail in these reflections as his weathered skin, He knew he had to make this his next painting. ‘Jeff’ was the catalyst for this most recent set of works.

Blast Em Chewy! by Craig DavisonMany of our top artists have released very strong work to compliment previous collections. Craig Davison being one of the main features this Spring with his amazing new Star Wars sketches. These four new sketches are a great accompaniment to any of the larger canvas editions like; BMX-Wings, Super Troopers and Full Force to name a few. Framed at £225 they would make a great gift for the typical Star Wars fan or a collector of Davison’s work.

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.

Stuart McAlpine Miller – Editions of 9 – An Exclusive Release of New Limited Edition Prints

moved by a force from behindFollowing his sell out exhibition of new work, Stuart McAlpine Miller released a stunning reproduction release of 7 limited edition prints. Limited to editions of only 9, these stunning low edition prints are a perfect representation of the original paintings he is now well renowned for.

The exhibition ‘Altered Images’ featured a large number of paintings and limited edition works in various sizes and subject but all containing the main factor of fading one idea to the next – Art critic Estelle Lovatt described it as “The merger of today’s science of technology with the prowess She Creates Terrorof ‘Live’ cartoon action.”

Only a year previously the telegraph was reporting a ‘Little-Known artist chosen as artist-in-residence at The Savoy’, an artist who struggled for 20 years to sell his work. Few art critics had heard of McAlpine Miller a couple of years ago until this break with the Savoy and new deal with leading publisher Washington Green. This extraordinary exposure set his new found style off to a profound start with followings across the world. During his residency he produced eight paintings inspired by celebrities who stayed at the famous London Hotel. Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Munroe were among the chosen featured celebrities.Table Top Deciples of Pose

Stuart McAlpine Miler sold his first work for £24 and until 2011 the highest price paid for one of his paintings was £7,000. In 2012/13 this rose to an incredible £25,000 with one piece at the Altered Images exhibition being sold for £180,000. Estelle Lovatt, art critic for BBC Radio 2’s Art Show has tipped Miller as an artist whose work could be worth a significant amount in years to come, if £180,000 isn’t a significant amount already then where could the artist go, being only 50 years of age and still practically a half life to go it will certainly be an interesting one to watch.Alice Through The Looking Glass

With deals like super silk tees for Lulu & Co and more importantly artist on the ground for Virgin Galactic space flight, New Mexico Desert 2015, Stuart McAlpine Miller will be setting the bar at a new level in years to come.
