Toni Cogdell Original PaintingsSolo exhibition coming soon...
The figures in my paintings are solitary, but not alone.
As flickers of starlight in a constellation of living bodies, the figures in my paintings are solitary, but not alone. The inward moment they are captured in; their form fusing with paint marks, words and textures, acts as a portal to spaces behind knowledge, a sensory sea of feeling, a self beneath our belief of the self. Us, simultaneously set in consciousness and clay.
Symbolised in paint are the comforting and familiar objects which reveal themselves through the haze of daily life. A repetition of natural reminders cutting through a technology-driven Age. The horizon in your periphery as you travel. The tree you see every morning unrewardingly standing as the backbone to your inner monologue. City lights floating on water at night, flowers scattered like fallen stars on the land, silhouettes of hills behind buildings, birds, branches, pathways, our own personal talismans of nature and living. Motifs and markers that guide us subliminally. Hand-scrawled words mark the surface of the paintings, obscured and revealed as our voices are, becoming remnants of thought and expression, of the tools we use to seek meaning.

New original Simon Kirk works on board from the recent exhibition, 'Colour Pop' are available to view
“I feel like I've hit a sweet spot with my work, not only in terms of what I'm producing now but also in terms of how it relates to works I've done previously. There's now a definite sense of progression and I hope those that have been following my work for a while can see the dialogue between the old and new." - Simon Kirk
'Hollywood Darlings' by Rosie EmersonAvailable now at Turner Art Perspective
Rosie Emerson is releasing two new editions of hand-painted screen prints featuring sirens of the silver screen Greta Garbo and Ava Gardner.
"My studio has always been my sanctuary, and at the start of 2021, I wanted to retreat away from the realities of the global pandemic, and play with iridescent inks, shiny powders and work with some beautiful images. Throughout most of 2020 I was unable to create my own photo shoots, so have been delving into the archives of Hollywood to create two brand new prints featuring these glamorous screen icons.
I have always been drawn to these beautiful black and white studio portraits, the lighting is masterful and they possess a softness which comes from shooting on real film.
I love playing on this softness, going against the grain of the often sharp graphic block colour aesthetic of screen print, and instead enhancing the soft, graininess akin to old newspaper print, with charcoal, bronze powders and paint - it is often unpredictable, but as each print is different it is an extremely gratifying process."
