deepspacestudios are currently home to the following artists:
Love for curating combined with interest in self portraiture are realised in works that draw on the performance of experience; perform the experience of drawing; experience the performance of drawing. Current work also includes ‘Field Press Series’ – an attempt to archive the material elements in life that tame the free spirit.
“My work is delicate & decorative with a feminine character and gravitates toward the tactile as I draw inspiration from pattern, texture and intricate design and my passion for handmade craftwork.”
Lucy is a freelance illustrator specialising in illustration for children, creating her images from bright, clean gouache colours and experimenting with detail, character and narrative. She is currently represented by Plum Pudding Illustration agency.
“I have a compulsion to paint and draw; scraps of paper, canvas, skin – much of it gets discarded, but sometimes I keep pieces and work them to some kind of conclusion. The process of creation is more important to me than the finished work.”
Jared, born 1968, is an artist and illustrator who grew up in Cornwall, England. He attended Falmouth School of Art to study Technical illustration before moving to London where he produced illustrations for many major national and international clients.
Tony’s work, described as unrestrained, invigorating, determined, exciting and ambitous praises the pleasures of colour and movement in a style which is both vibrant and original. He has sold various works in England and America.
“I am inspired by memories of places visited, buildings, structures – inside and out and the people that move among them. Surface, texture and the feel of the paint are very important to me. I often paint over old paintings allowing the colour and tone of previous layers to guide me.”
Fumio is a comic book artist who specialises in sequential image design. Also a lecturer in Art and Design as well as an illustrator, his work takes influences from both European and Japanese esthetics.
Mixed media work both in 2d and 3d, which shifts between the real and the abstract, exploring the retrieval and intertwining of memories, dreams and imaginings.
“Following 19 months working as a TV journalist in Beijing, I returned to Cheltenham with a need to express -on canvas- my China experience. The political, cultural and environmental challenges of daily life there form the essence of a series of contemporary landscape oil paintings: ‘Smog – with Chinese Characteristics’.”
Just starting out, Sophie produces mixed media pieces inspired by found objects, personal histories and experiences. She uses traditional and digital methods together to develop a unique style. Commissions and portraits are also available on discussion.
“Drawing, printmaking and artists books are my main loves, although I can be found painting, whittling, beading, crafting dream-catchers and moccasins too. Deep ecology, energy and the beautiful, natural world we are a part of are strong undercurrents in all I do, especially my art.”
“I get accused of being obsessed with vultures. This is not the whole truth. I am also obsessed with owls.”
“I am primarily a painter working in Oils. Drawing is also an important part of my practice, as well as exploring different ways to make work using printmaking and mixed media.”
“For some time I have been looking for an alternative way of painting with a radical move from what attracts me most. This body of work is made with the removal of colour and direct observation. These are invented landscapes. Designed space. A visible definition of a place with no humanising qualities.”
“I love to play with colour & materials, letting things happen in a random way with abstract results. Using oils, acrylics, plaster, glue gun, wire & beads I produce interior design canvases for businesses and people’s homes and am stimulated by the challenge of incorporating suitable images, techniques and colour schemes in keeping with the interior of a room.”
Sympathetic to the vulnerability of all living things, I use various mediums from paint to drawing materials to distill the essence of the subject through colour and texture.
“Influenced by contemporary urban life, I find inspiration in the confusion & fleetingness of busy crowded streets, the overlooked and unloved spaces at the edge of town & city that often hold an eerie feeling of insecurity and, yet, an odd sense of freedom.”
