Figurative Painting in any Medium

Kirsty Simmons

Central Saint Martins (BA Fine Art with honours, 2019) 

My works are heavily influenced by our technological environment and the effect screens have on both our sense of presence and perception of reality. Using digital imaging software as a post-production tool, I hope to redefine the aesthetic of painting in the age of new media to create paintings which feel completely artificial. Exploring the mysteriousness of virtual space specifically with this feeling of immaterial timelessness, my work aims to portray the shift between virtual and real spaces.

China Academy of Art (BA , 2013)

I enjoy focusing my work on the reality of my own life,rather than something superficial, or noble. While developing and creating my art, I aim to blend the elements of my work to create an odd and poetic impression of my daily life. I hunt for subtle and fragile elements, with ironic details, and assemble them together in an illogical way. My work also has personal significance to me, signifying both my environment and cultural background. In my painting the perception is important, giving clues to making you consider not only the reality, but the time and space it represents.

Simin Shang

Camberwell College of Arts (MA , 2007)

During the early stages of my work, I have been influenced by Victor Burgin, specifically the juxtaposition of elements and metaphor interpretation. My current work is focused more on the community and the everyday, and I express that through the use of cartoon illustrations to highlight contrast and represent a different side to true form. My work includes screen prints, paintings and mixed media. The current creation is more focused on self-awareness of the excavation and re-definition, according to their own different feelings, to form a different world.

Sheng Xiao

China Academy of Art (BA degree , 2010)

Sheng specialises in simple visual language in relation to space for expression. His abstract artwork reviews a process that is both creative yet natural in attitude. Through this attitude he expresses his interpretation of space in relation to society and people’s feelings. It is his belief, that feelings can be expressed in art-form. And abstract art can be used to represent this type of invisible yet strong emotion well. He emphasizes on the impact that abstract art can have for the viewer’s thought process and interpretation.

Lu Yu

Other (MA , 2016)

When I begin to outline and paint the balls, it feels like I am painting myself. Painting my own emotions, my hidden emotions, and then slowly mixed with my relationship with the environment, as well as my relationship with space. I believe that the relationship between mankind and society is particularly tense and delicate. And like mysteriousness jumping out of a picture, it made me feel excited about the relentless pursuit of beauty. Life is not easy, but receiving some sort of comfort from painting seems enough to me.
