    Prepare for some serious flashbacks to that single Art History class you took freshman year.

    The Oil Paintings of Amy Judd

    Amy Judd is a London based artist represented by Hicks Gallery Wimbledon.

    Recent Avian work is a collection of sensitive silent moments; some full of whimsical intrigue, others more surreal and seductive. These paintings draw inspiration from the enchanting and imaginative relationship between women and birds found in traditional mythologies and folklores.

    The composition, light and positioning of the subject, creates curious images, which conjure up new “mythological” narratives or creatures within the paintings; using Feathers as armor, and birds as familiars. The sensitive brushwork on the figure’s flesh complements the delicate pattern of the feathers, however the compositions are bold and strong, and the figures are not frail or delicate; the feathers allude to strength, flight and bravery, rather than fragility.

    All the Wild Horses photo series by Durban-based photographer Andrew McGibbon

    'All The Wild Horses' is a tribute to the beast that has made much of what we call life possible. The images are unique and have a style to them reminiscent of the portraiture of the rich and famous. The artist has attempted, and succeeded, to show a sense of personality and emotion - sadness in some cases and pride in others.

    Painstakingly lit, this body of work is about the horse itself to which we all feel a connection, whether it’s obvious or deep down in our collective subconscious. There is a sense of awe that this beast inspires in each and everyone of us.”
