When creating an artwork, most of the processing stages are based on emotions and improvisation. Once the painting is complete, my sole goal is for each viewer to find their own story when looking at the artwork. Still, if one is interested to hear my perspective on the work, I can say that it is, most importantly, about playing with the combination of colours, textures, lines, and more. My paintings, however, are mostly created with blotches of multilayered paint which are not intended to create figurative details as I want the painting to communicate the message as a whole.
"If you Want Peace, then Prepare for Warrens - 'The Vermin are Revolting!' Series, 2017" by Abi Whitlock
"Part of a new series I'm currently working on entitled 'The Vermin are Revolting!'. In this piece and in the series generally, I explore how modern humanity categorises and labels some aspects of the natural world as undesirable and how human life now so often centres around the sanitisation, control and manicuring of nature. Nature is only seen as 'valuable' to us if it provides a service, generates wealth or if it's in the 'right place'. Thus large swathes of life are destroyed as they are either considered a nuisance or are seen as having no value. Yet nature still finds a way, no matter how much we try to paper over the cracks. In this painting, the perfect expanse of green that is a gardener's lawn is broken by an insurgence of rabbits. With them they bring the wilderness and they steadily claim back what was once their own."
This work is painted on a gallery wrapped canvas and thus can be hung unframed. This piece is also currently on sale - get it whilst you can!

"This etching was created on two copper plates - tiny grooves and pits were made on each using a variety of resists and ferric chloride. Both plates are inked up in several colours then wiped back carefully before being printed onto damp paper on a traditional etching press (a bit like a mangle if you can remember mangles!) One plate is printed then removed and the second plate is printed on the paper over the top of the first. The plates are inked and printed by hand for every print in the edition. It comes in an acid-free window mount and is carefully flat-packed with 4 layers of cardboard." Printmaker, Rebecca Vincent.
There's only one of this limited edition print left - get it whilst you can!
"Ben Robson Hull, Deep In The Forest - Limited Edition Print" by Ben Robson Hull
“This photograph was made in a small copse just beneath Stanage Edge in the Derbyshire Peak District. Locally it is called 'The Plantation', in particular amongst us rock climbers. I had arrived at sunrise to capture the morning sunlight on the boulders but it turned out to be a rather dull and misty morning. So, I turned my attention to the Autumnal Beech trees and fallen leaves and set about recording the vast array of colours on display. This tree in particular suddenly jumped out at me as having a beautiful curving shape and form that was very difficult to isolate against the background and other clutter in the woods. If you were to stand in front of the tree you wouldn't necessarily see the shape because of everything else going on around the tree. This is a great example of attempting to create a composition that works from a very busy and cluttered field of view. The colours have been tweaked and strengthened slightly post process to provide a magical and mystical feel to the photograph.” - Ben Robson Hull
This painting is inspired by the vivid multi-coloured corn grown by Native American Indians where harmony appears at the same time.
Oil on linen, "Corn" represents compassion towards nature, tradition, cultural background story, coexistence and fine details.
'Love' is just one word, and yet it communicates a whole language worth of meaning.

Continuing my ' powerful places ' series of paintings. This painting draws on my memories of Victoria Falls - Zimbabwe. The Kalolo-Lozi people had their own name before Livingstone arrived, Mosi-oa-Tunya which translates as 'The smoke that thunders'. The noise of the Zambezi river tumbling with full force over the 350ft drop is the memory that really sticks. These are the largest waterfalls in the world.
This was the last stop on our month long trip through southern Africa taking in four countries and where the gearbox on the 4x4 Bedford finally gave up. I remember helping to rebuild it for the limp back to Harare airport using bearings that we made out of cutting up steel tent pegs.
Although not many flowers bloom in winter, once you have seen the winter flower, Amaryllis, you will remember it. It is handsome, elegant and outstanding. It will not only show you its beauty, but also its vitality. I hope you can see this in my painting, 'White Amaryllis'.
Ling Strube is a distinctive and a passionate artist who was born and raised in China. Since 2000, she has lived in Germany, concentrating on her art full time.
A shot of enthusiasm: a swimmer propelling through brilliant blue crystalline waters. She makes her impression on the quilt work of patterns, swirls, and many hues of blue that surround her. Ripples flow from her body as it glides and her feet burst with the summertime energy of an explosive splash.
Her exuberance occupies two worlds: the agitated surface, white and blurry, and the still, quiet clear below.
