    Luca George is the ghost of a flea, he is a leaf on a tree, he's the angel hesitating near, he's the human being full of fear, he is dread, he is anguish and he is a sandwich...

    Welcome to Episode 10 of To The Studio. This weeks guest is Ben Jamie..
    .
    .
    Ben Jamie’s oil paintings attempt to explore the boundaries between the incongruous and the sentimental, turning the ordinary into the unfamiliar.
    .
    .
    Inspiration comes from many sources, be it studio detritus, fly tipping, trans humanism, conspiracy theories or fast food, and although based somewhere in reality, the paintings are fairly undisturbed by the real world. The paintings depict notional, metamorphic spaces containing their own logic, including shapes that have associations; something in a state of metamorphosis; something responding to an external force or inherent forms discovered in something exposed to an extreme event.
    .
    .
    Open drawing is very important in the construction of the work – paintings are worked over many times, with the final image only being discovered over time.

    Welcome to Episode 9 of To The Studio. This weeks guest is Hannah Rowan
    .
    .
    Hannah Rowan makes multi-disciplinary works that meditate on the relationship between the slow geological time of natural processes and the fast-paced, technology-driven, frenetic activity of humans. She works across sculpture, video, sound, performance and installation with a diagrammatic and alchemical approach to developing transitional and ephemeral pieces. Hannah’s work often focuses on the element of water as a means for representing the interconnections of ecological systems.

    Beatrice Lettice Boyle

    Welcome to Episode 8 of To The Studio. This weeks guest is Beatrice Lettice Boyle
    .
    .
    Beatrice Lettice Boyle is interested in Shelley Duvall, bumper stickers, witches/hags, choosing fabric and the seam between things. Recent work has appropriated imagery from 18th century Shunsho woodblock prints, a 16th century painting of the crucifixion attributed to Bosch, 16th century Brueghel landscapes and Disney’s 1937 Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs. In Boyle’s installations the references which span eras and hi/lo culture exist on a simultaneous plane.

    Francesca Blomfield

    Welcome to Episode 7 of To The Studio. This weeks guest is Francesca Blomfield.
    .
    .
    The atmosphere of night creates the condition from which Francesca synthesises drawing, painting and writing. This temporality of night allows for multiplicity of space that has potential for different transgressions, contained rubbing of different varieties; in delirium, in fatigue, physically moving through darkness in new sensory spaces, in the conjuring of what wants to be forgotten or what can only be forgotten led by a desire to extend new possibilities and actions. Transformation enacts descent into the subconscious, into the repressed, concerned with areas of extremity to form a type of psychic self surgery.
    Francesca generates automated internal subject matter for the paintings and drawings, forming a mutual relationship and feeding each other by means of content and material limitation. In both the paintings and the drawings the language is formed of text/image panoramas. The way Francesca works is concerned with the slowness of painting and drawing whilst never forgetting the urgency inherent to the experience of thoughts and feelings.
    The paintings render her designs in a baroque and excessive texture that compress the figure and ground of the graphic in a rapid and laboured exchange. The compositions become subverted friezes, expanding horizontally. The process of applying paint in multiple layers both hides and redefines the text/image objects in the paintings. Painting becomes a dissonant activity where there is a continual action of creation and destruction of surface and content.
    Drawing becomes a place where Francesca reverses the physical build up of paint in the paintings. Drawing reduces the graphic and she can deconstruct the joy and pleasure available to her through the creation of perverse, volumized marks in the paintings. Francesca considers the drawings, which are created from modular parts, to be like musical scores or architectural diagrams.
