Since graduating from Falmouth College of Arts in 1998, Bath based artist Georgia Cox has achieved a reputation for her paintings of intricate flower compositions using oil and gold leaf.
Patterning, repetition, texture and the highly detailed observation of natural forms have become the hallmark of her work. As well as the natural world, inspiration comes from armour, quilting, tiles and jewellery. Georgia has exhibited at venues including the National Portrait Gallery, Mercers Hall, Mall Galleries and the Royal West of England Academy.
She is a member of Bath Society of Artists and has won the Public Choice Prize twice at Bath Society of Artists exhibitions as well as Peoples Choice Award in the Pound Open.
We have recently taken delivery of four new paintings, one of which is illustrated above: ‘Masked’ oil and copper leaf on panel 54 x 54 cm

There are some artists whose work, because of its uniqueness, almost defies description. Peter White might just be one of them, for his paintings in a mix of oil, wax and acrylic, of open books and bowls are not quite what they at first seem. You may be looking at a large painting of a bowl, for example, but what the eye takes in is an impression of a moving sea of colour and shadow caused by the deep furrows and rivulets of the paint surface. It is this surface texture that transforms the painting into something quite different - landscape, forest, sea, storm sky, in fact whatever the imagination conjures, whatever you want it to be.
Peter White was born in Ayrshire in 1959 and studied at Edinburgh College of Art. He moved to Ullapool in North West Scotland in 1994. There have been numerous awards, including The Royal Scottish Academy Latimer Prize, the Royal Scottish Academy Oppenheim Prize, Scottish Arts Council Bursary and the RGI Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow Award. There have been over twenty solo exhibitions mainly in London and Scotland, and numerous mixed shows in this country and overseas. In 2008 he was Artist in Residence with Care International, Amman, Jordan.

Working in oil and staging his scenes with friends and family, Rochfort creates moments that are both stunningly immediate and yet rich with suggested backstory. Film noir, old Hollywood, comic strips and Norman Rockwell jostle for position on these compelling canvases. Rochfort is one of Britain's most exciting narrative painters and an artist with significant international appeal.
"My paintings are snapshots of moments in time, often idealised and always entirely staged using my friends and family as models. I see myself as the director, shaping my chosen scene until I am happy and then using this is a groundwork to start painting. My focus is on structure and gesture, colour and composition and always seeing the paint at work when you get close."
