Using traditional oil painting techniques and inspired by the masters of the Impressionist era, Ian Shalliker’s concerns lie in composition, colour and tone, evoking both a lightness in the atmosphere and a solidity in the West Country landscape.

Jo Beer also works in oil paints with broad brush strokes and clearly defined tone to build descriptive and expressive portraits. Describing her work as “not pretty, but pretty honest”, Jo pays attention to the details of blemishes, creases and skin tones, and fabrics, folds, patterns and styles.

Niki Hill uses a wide range of materials in her creative responses which range from highly patterned and expressive paintings and collage to tiny handmade books.
She says, “My work is influenced by the mysterious and the ethereal as well as broken hearts and endless joy.”

Stephen Beer, too, defies categorisation, working with acrylic and collage to respond to a variety of subjects, his eclectic influences in photography and filmmaking feeding into his contemporary works with spontaneity and serendipity.
