Ten contemporary artists
Kate Banazi is an artist who celebrates relationships and identity in an age where these are ever-growing focuses of conversation. A seasoned professional of silkscreen and collage, she is inspired by the psychedelic art of Peter Max and vibrant Bollywood cinema. Her experimental, intuitive works are all hand crafted and demonstrate wholeheartedly the kind of craftsmanship we love to champion at the Affordable Art Fair. Gas Gallery
Beaux Arts Bath
Beth Carter’s dream-like sculptures are a perfect showcase of the breadth of artworks on offer at the fair – from paintings to photography and beyond. Carter’s work is beautifully crafted from her own life experience, as with her featured minotaur series which tenderly details the memory of her father’s struggle with depression. Her studies in mythological sculpture in Sri Lanka and India contributed to the intricate detail of the creatures.Beaux Arts Bath
Charles-Alexis Grenier is a painter and graphic designer native to Montreal. His large-scale compositions on wood comprise fragmentary, geometric interpretations of mid-century photographic images. Inspired by Picasso’s Cubism and Miró’s minimalist etchings, his work explores the themes of identity and universality.Artêria Gallery
Maureen’s artistry is rooted in the animal kingdom, with her Threshold series being produced with the cooperation of local sanctuaries and zoos. Through her work, O’Connor raises questions about how nature and the built environment intersect at a time characterised by global environmental changes.Aperture Contemporary
Andrew Hood is a Bristol-based artist who is widely celebrated for his wanderlust-inspiring paintings. Whilst studying illustration at Liverpool John Moores University, Hood won the Gorstella Award for Fine Art and the Liverpool life painting open. Although he is often drawing inspiration from global sources, he is also a celebrator of the UK’s beautifully diverse landscape. First Contemporary
Galerie Virginie Barrou Planquart
Juliette Schwartz uses canvases to explore constantly changing spaces, nature and architecture to question the boundaries of figurative art in a beautifully dynamic way. Schwartz had a 15 year-long career in stage design before committing fully to painting, lending an exciting sense of theatricality in her subsequent works.Galerie Virginie Barrou Planquart
Also showcasing her work as part of Platform Projects is Hermione Allsopp, whose sculptures tap into the human psyche and play with our established sense of familiarity. Hermione makes sculptural works by collecting objects and furniture and then reimagining them into new forms.
Davy & Kristin McGuire
Davy, a theatre professional, and Kristin, a former Cirque du Soleil performer, have formed an award-winning creative studio. Their work focuses on transportational visual experiences through installation art and theatrical projects. At the fair they will be showcasing their new collection of film noir-inspired video vignettes
Irvine Peacock’s work – which has broadly been described as surrealist – offers an enchanting journey into the painted worlds of myth and folklore. Interestingly, Peacock once considered art therapy as a career before settling as an artist, which adds an element of the psychological to his work. Peacock’s All You Need is being brought to the fair by Portal Painters, a London based gallery who have represented high quality artworks by a unique group of artists for over 50 years.Portal Painters
Neus Torres Tamarit & Ben Murray
Amongst the works set to be unveiled as part of Platform Projects is Biomorpha, the brainchild of multidisciplinary artist Neus Torres Tamarit and computer scientist Ben Murray. Working at the intersection between art, science, and technology this pair has crafted a fully immersive journey into the worlds of science and genetics.
