RAY HARRINGTON

Where there be light there be life.  Without it we would not exist. I am always excited by the diversity of tricks that light plays and the way it affects our emotions, we are uplifted on sunny days and downcast on dull. It has a symbiotic relationship with pigment, causing a riot of colour or a soothing calm, a magical illumination or shadows of complex bottomless depths.  
As a visual artist I strive to capture and expand on some of the magic that stirs my senses. Sometimes the result on canvas can connect with like emotions in others which is gratifying. 
I am just another disciple in the footsteps of impressionists who have gone. My heroes J.M.W.Turner, those colourful frenchmen and the Australian Heidelberg school.

DAVID NEWMAN-WHITE

“…Let there be light…” Genesis 1:3

My inspiration for painting portraits has always been primarily from artists who painted during the Baroque period in Italy, Spain, France and the Netherlands.

The Italian painter Caravaggio used a technique called ‘Chiaroscuro’, using light to create form out of darkness. Vermeer’s light filled rooms and Ribera’s dramatic lighting have always been a source of inspiration for me. Frequently I reference both Velazquez and Rembrandt for the way they use light and shade to form the human face.

Twentieth century portrait artists to the present that interest me are, Stanley Spencer, Paula Rego, Lucian Freud, Frank Auerbach and Jenny Saville.

Anatomical drawing and the use of contour lines identifying bone structure in the portrait face and figure I love. For me, character overrules beauty.
