"'mon the artisan" by Des Smith 2005

"Sunspot-Sparkle" by Sarah Laing 2006 (ARTS:2983)

Sarah's work uses a combination of printmaking and painting techniques in order to create a sense of darkness and depth. Photographs of landscape and especially water form the basis of pieces like this, but overpainted with images that she describes as "deliberately obscure and ambiguous to reflect something alien, weird, or unexpected".
