Artist Eefje Van den Brande approaches the canvas with fluidity and freedom, taking inspiration from nature to explore the unity between all living things. Starting from a single ink blot, she lets her paintings evolve naturally; encouraging viewers to embrace their emotions, live freely and in harmony with nature.
Paula Cherry's vibrant artworks are a reflection of her inner and outer landscapes where she pairs her love for the outdoors with the contemplative thoughts and emotions she experiences whilst in nature. Her emotions are transformed into texture and colour on canvas as she spreads a message of expression, joy and an appreciation for nature with the viewer.
For Italian Artist Antonella Prasse, her emotive paintings are an extension of herself. Through combining her love for poetry and painting, she breathes life into each of her canvases; exchanging energies so they can tell their own stories. Antonella works intuitively to find balance in her art, acting as a metaphor to how we as humans seek to achieve balance in our everyday lives. She shares her creative process and some of her biggest learnings.
Rachel Camilleri works intuitively to capture the emotions felt in everyday life. She takes inspiration from what is around her, from music and street art to the architecture found in her home town of Manchester. She plays with the emotional qualities of colour, applying paint freely, with each movement dictating her next step. Art is Rachel's form of therapy, helping her to release and process emotion.
Mexico-based Artist Sonia Amelia Saldaña sets out to capture the 'non-perfect' condition of a rose. The moment a rose starts to mature symbolises how beauty goes far beyond perfection; it is in the flaws and in the ageing process where a rose reaches true vitality and power. In her large-scale paintings, Sonia evokes an overwhelming feeling in an "avalanche of beauty”. Sonia shares her creative process with us; the concepts and inspirations behind her pieces; and how she feels when she creates art.
