Keith Drury

Contemporary artist Keith Drury studied at Queens University, Belfast and now explores the art of the 21st Century. His choice of vivid colours combine elements of the past and of today to produce an art form which Keith has creatively named "retromagic".
Although Keith traditionally painted in oils, art must always be the expression of its day and Keith now creates artworks in 3D digital 'paint' - a medium for the 21st Century which values razor sharp images in high definition.
This style is, if anything, more demanding than traditional painting techniques as it requires all the usual 'creative' abilities of any artist but adds the requirements of vivid imagination, design and technical know-how.

 

ian fennelly

Ian studied painting at Wimbledon School of Art and gained a 1st Class Honours degree in 1987. After graduating he worked as a drawing office manager for several years which have him the opportunity to develop his drawing skills. Ian is attracted to the urban environment and loves the feel of a busy city. He paints very quickly and loosely, but it must happen within the context of an accurate drawing, which holds the paint in.
Ian works from a light and airy studio overlooking a beach and often work on several pictures at once, which enables him to plan the colours and allows different ideas to bounce off each other. An important part of this information gathering process is travelling to different cities. His 'urban sketches' are completed on location, using only watercolour, brush pens and fine liners.
"Inspiration for my paintings comes from visiting places, spending time there, meeting people and getting honked at by buses. But when I paint, the subject is just the starting point; it's the battle on the paper that's really exciting. Colours, shapes, lines and patterns are all jockeying for position , while the water flows within the textured grooves of the heavy Fabriano paper. This is what's really exciting. The image will inevitably come through, sometimes in spite of my efforts, because it's painting itself that really inspires me.

brian gordon

Brian Gordon is officially classed as a "Naive" artist. He is entirely self taught, and served a seven year apprenticeship as a metal engraver, which forms the basis of his craft. He has always painted, but one day in 1978, he visited a one time familiar street in Liverpool where he was brought up, only to find it derelict. He picked up an old roof slate, which gave him the idea of engraving and portraying the images of his childhood onto the very slate that came from places that he knew.
Brian says "The slate has to smell of the soot and grime of years"
He has exhibited in London's Rona Gallery and Liverpool's Lyver and Boydel Gallery.
