Emma Jagare | New ceramics
Sophisticated and intriguing, Emma Jagare's new collection of ceramics includes vases decorated with petals and platters of pressed flowers but also purely sculptural pieces such as coiling rose wreaths in smoky tones, tiny wheatsheaf sculptures and bouquets, all inspired by the rolling countryside surrounding her Northamptonshire studio.
Sarah Wiseman says, "Emma's work captures all that is beautiful in the natural world, particularly the British countryside, but her pared-back, almost austere colour palette prevents the work from becoming too saccharine; there's definitely an edge to it."
Figurative work inspired by classical drawing and mythology.Introducing Ottelien Huckin
Sarah Wiseman Gallery is thrilled to introduce Ottelien Huckin to our gallery visitors.
Ottelien works primarily in painting and drawing, as well as in ceramics and sculpture. Her work is figurative, typically depicting entwined figures, often in a garden or forest setting, influenced by her interest in classical drawing and mythology - although she takes a fresh perspective outside of a ‘male gaze.’
Her paintings are distinct by their fresh, drawn marks that flow; they are pleasingly balanced with technical accomplishment. In her recent paintings, she uses ‘oil-bars’ a large pastel-like medium which is made from solid, oil based-colour, a mixture of pigment, oil and wax. However, unlike an oil pastel, it’s translucent colour, and tends to be much larger in size. These allow the artist to apply colour quickly and expressively to a canvas, as if drawing.
