the EXCEPTIONAL ARTISTS handpicked by Art Salon International
Geoff Diego Litherland
For those wanting to explore these worlds, to step into this possible future, Litherland provides plans, painted maps that are part cartography, part painting, part future artifact. These strange hybrid creations are a combination of satellite images, energy lines, geometric forms and abstract gestures, they don’t offer the viewer a geographic knowledge of these worlds, but a wider epistemology to a more interconnected way of living.
They are simultaneously, I hope, a slightly unsettling joke, uncanny, and perhaps even genuinely, if marginally and a bit perversely, pornographic (even though the true suggestiveness is only ever imagined by the viewer in response to the overall title)…”
He starts by painting the image in a representational manner, then apply dragging techniques, pushing and pulling the paint and causing ruptures in the image. Within this he use geometrical abstractions, playing on a sense of entropy and order; the impermanence of form, but also the crystalline nature of its emergence. Through this process the artist tries to understand and internalise perception and experience, whilst reflecting on a sense of modern day anxiety.
Pauline’s work is rooted in the aesthetics and practices of painting, photography, landscape and science. Subject matter has included the terrain of Iceland and the 19th century observations of the Mars canals. In 2012 Rednile Projects selected her as one of 7 other artists to visit the UK’s dark matter laboratory that is housed under the North Sea within the Boulby potash mine in Cleveland.
Peskett’s works are featured in public and private collections all over the world such as the United States, Australia, France, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Norway, Germany and Singapore. Peskett also has private collections with the Earl of Chichester and Joe La Placa, Bentley Headquarters, British Telecom public collection, and Leeds City Council Collection. Her artwork has been exhibited extensively in exhibitions and art fairs, and in art centers such as London, San Francisco and New York.
Clay Smith has had extensive experience in both the UK and Internationally. In recent years he has been part of the incredible Format International Photography Festival, Hotel Art Fairs in South Korea and has been published in articles/magazines such as DARWIN and Artsbeat in Austria. January 2018 Clay exhibited in Athens at the Enia Gallery, and March 2018 at the Angus-Hughes Gallery in Hackney London. Smith is becoming a leading artist in the art of photomontage, and is fast becoming a recognisable figure in the UK for his use of materials that range from insects and blood (his own blood).
David Manley is one of the most significant artists working in the Midlands and has created a extraordinarily varied body of work that eludes stylistic and historical categories. His practice encompasses painting, drawing, photography, digital manipulation, sculpture, assemblage and installation although Language, spatial arrangements and scale in painting are central ongoing concerns. The poetry of materials, both traditional and provisional, is of paramount importance to the artist whose intellectual curiosity and interest in spirituality imbues his work with startlingly original and often non-specific jumping off points.
