Gleb Goloubetski was born in Omsk in the former Soviet Union in 1975. His formal training was completed at the highly acclaimed academy in St Petersburg. His inspiration comes primarily from the aged architecture and geography of Europe, where he travels extensively. When he finds a view or subject that inspires him, Gleb will sit and observe it for some time and take a number of reference photographs. Returning to his main studio in St Petersburg, Gleb will sit and consider his photographs, reminding himself of scale, he then turns to the canvas and begins to paint. It is Gleb’s emotional response to the subject that he conveys to canvas, with oil paints, and only a palette knife. Gleb says, “When looking at my paintings, go past the visual stimulus of colour and contrast to allow yourself to feel, then you will see!”
Caroline Zimmermann was born in Anaheim, California in 1964. She began painting with oil paints at the age of six, completing her formal training at California State University and the California College of Arts and Crafts. Caroline divides her time between a beachside home and studio in California, and a home and studio in the heart of the Tuscan hills. Her paintings are inspired by the energy and tranquillity of the natural world. Caroline says, “I live to paint and I paint to live.” Caroline paints with brushes and oil paints on linen, canvas and wood panels.
Sarah-Jane Szikora discovered her passion for art while in hospital at the age of four. With one eye bandaged following surgery, despite this she was drawing frenetically and thus the passion began. After leaving school, Sarah-Jane attended Harrogate and Cleveland Art Colleges, specialising in illustration. She sketches with pencils and crayons and paints mainly with oil paints on canvas. Having won a battle against eating disorders that started in her late teens and ended in her early thirties, food and exaggerated figures feature throughout Sarah-Jane’s quirky and witty artworks. She says, “There is an obsession in our society about appearance, everyone is on a diet or opting for cosmetic improvements… My objective is to find the common thread that connects us, and I hope that empathy is at the heart of my work.”
Russell Hatton is a self-taught artist, coming from a background in building and repairing industrial and bespoke domestic motor vehicles. Russell has spent many years experimenting with acrylic, water-based metallic, xirallic, pearlescent and holographic paints. Selected paints are applied over an aluminium surface, using commercial spray guns set to extreme high pressures. The artworks are built in layers, often with lacquers between each layer, and then baked in an industrial low bake oven. When cool, the artworks are precision polished by hand. Russell’s contemporary artworks are perfect for any domestic, commercial or industrial setting; either inside or outside! Russell says, “I approach every painting as if it were my last.”
