Kathryn Sillince

Sheffield Hallam University (Contemporary Fine Art )

Imbued with an organic, ethereal quality, my work is characterised by a chaotic rainbow palette; clashing and complimentary colours competing together side by side, layered with a mix of calmer muted washes and splashes of bright neon. My work is light and fresh with a joyful energy, and the compositions are a delicate balance of intricate swirling forms and concentrated layers of colour. Finally, embellishments and finishing touches are made which lets some ideas breathe, others left intentionally raw, adding further energy to each piece.

Kelsey Muldoon

Lancaster University (Fine Art , 2020)

I am a fine artist practising with oil paint.

My focus is on portraiture, specifically on the relationship between colour and lighting. I look into modernising old art forms using bright colours to create a cohesive but contrasting painting.

It all started when I accidentally stumbled upon the asteroid belt of art. And, now that's what I call home. My imagination has no bounds and I think mermaids do exist in reality. So do pixies, fairies and all the other beings that we have hitherto only heard of. Growing up, art is what I felt enamoured by and yet I had no intentions of pursuing it initially but that changed swiftly as I began taking my art more seriously and it quickly became my passion. My style is bright, bold, dynamic and "in your face". The colors I choose are vibrant and flamboyant.
