Claire Mc Dermott

McDermott paints delicate water colours of flowers in transition. Going to Seed is a body of work that freeze frames the moment when one life ends and another begins. McDermott sensitively compares the life cycle of plants to that of our own by immortalizing the transitional process of a flower form origination to seed.

Painting and drawing from the model and still life is clearly a productive source for artist Helen McCarthy, Whilst her life drawings are structurally accurate and lyrical, her paintings from life have an expressive quality that resides in the blended, indistinct quality of her paint application. She favours saturated hues and her understated tonal palette further enhances the dreamlike effect. Her recent abstracted drawings in charcoal and pastel are clearly drawn from the memory of observation but seem to seek to distil the presence of human energy and life force.

Kay McDonagh

Kay used to paint a lot, but since she discovered the hand printing press, her focus has shifted to etching. The artist loves portraying animals, which in her work become subjects to learn about, and you are under no illusion that they represent some general truths about human kind. It is not the first time that an artist has personalized animals and spoken through metaphor, but Kay's skilful use of visual humour and sub titles get the messages across.

Helen McKenna-Menges

Helen McKenna-Menges was brought up on the Solway Firth and spent much of her time on the coast in Scotland and England. The power of the lakes and seascapes of the west coast and the dramatic Scottish hills still influences her work today. "Painting became a way of gaining access to the same feelings I had there, when I couldn't be there physically… I love the outdoors and I love the challenge of painting outdoors and the race between the clouds, sun, midges and my paint drying". Helen's recent landscapes paintings focus on the landscape of Scotland, Cumbria, and Cornwall. Helen McKenna-Menges studied at the highly acclaimed Goldsmiths College, London University in 1991.

Noriko Michigami

Born in Japan, Noriko Michigami moved to the UK as a child. "Soon after I began painting in England I became aware that mostly my sense of sensibilities originated in Japan…" She says, adding, " The simplicity and the sense of 'Praise of shadows' and the Japanese traditional concept of 'mono-no-aware' to understand and respond to the appeal of objects to the human heart, effect not only my emotion, but they make my perception". Shaped by her memory and emotions, she is particularly interested in how light and shadow affects the work, both visually and psychologically. Her use of colour, particularly her brown sepia washes, helps to create a strong sense of isolation and melancholy. Noriko Michigami has works in private collections throughout the U.K.
