In flow: Sophia Pauley

In Sophia Pauley's bright, textural paintings, she takes inspiration from the urban environment; with shapes and lines stemming from architectural environments associated with water. Combined with her experience of moving through these spaces, she creates a sense of flow in her work. With the use of bright tones and different textures and mediums, Sophia hopes to energise viewers by the sense of movement within the works.

Serenity: Abi Whitlock

Serenity: Abi Whitlock

Abi Whitlock asks us to immerse ourselves and escape to calmer waters in her photorealist paintings. For Abi, water offers a place of seclusion, silence and serenity; allowing her thoughts to rise to the surface as she floats weightlessly. From observing the relationship between light and water, she is able to capture psychedelic patterns and colours through paint; enhancing the idea of a distorted reality.

Facing fears: Fei Alexeli

Digital Artist Fei Alexeli invites us to face our deepest fears and escape into a parallel universe. Evoking a nostalgia for 60s America, contrasted with surreal compositions of outer space and tropicana in a pink haze, her utopian scenes make us feel less alone and help us to see that beauty is all around us.
