Featured Artist Since graduating I have continually challenged my work and practice, and set expressive goals for myself; usually this is about conveying feeling to the viewer.  I use abstraction as a medium for this, and I am particularly interested in mark making; how this affects the viewer. Abstract art can reach into my soul and move and absorb me like no other art form. However it is the British landscape and especially the moors that inspires me and has always been my muse.

My work falls into 3 apparently different categories, which however, are infact organically linked. 1) In work which I loosely call ‘de-constructed stained glass pieces’ – I combine a printing technique with coloured...

Fiona Bradford

Featured Artist Fiona Bradford is a British contemporary artist based in Somerset. Predominantly a painter, Fiona’s material and process-led practice attempts to articulate the space between what ‘there is’ and ‘there is not’; a point of potential immanence.

The work is informed by ideas related to the principles of emptiness and uncertainty. Emptiness is not seen as a ‘thing’ or ‘state of being’ but rather a process or...
