Laura Harris - ARTIST'S BIO

Titanic Arts Club  Exhibition 26 May-1st June.

Artists's Bio:

Laura Harris's recent figurative oil paintings look at how women are portrayed in society. The artist is particularly interested in ideas surrounding sexuality, femininity, and how women age. The insecurities, fears and hopes that they have for the future and achievements and regrets of the past. Each work relates to an incident or distorted reality of an actual event that the artist has either witnessed, or more often than not, actually experienced or imagined. In that sense the paintings are autobiographical.


I'm Up For Anything (partially pictured)

Using an image of a famous American actress as inspiration for this piece, the artist was drawn to her confident pose and low camera angle. The elongation of her legs and sexy dress, coupled with the text, encourages the viewer to wonder what exactly she is "Up For". The artist hopes to challenge the viewer's thoughts on female beauty, sexuality, and behaviour.




 


 

Louise Whitham ARTIST'S BIO

Titanic Arts Club  Exhibition 26 May-1st June.

Louise Whitham. Artist’s Bio:

Louise Whitham's mixed media figurative work utilizes the impressions from pressed flowers taking ‘readings’ in the traces left behind. These works hope to open a dialog about aging, the female identity and the menopause. The artist manipulates her studies to create a physical appearance but on closer inspection things are parts of other things. Her female forms explore the border between floriography, anthropology and art history to formulate new scenarios. The Ancient Britains, Ovid and Titian cherished fertility as we worship it today but unlike the trend engrained in the culture of the 20th and 21st Century they also held the attributes of post fertile women: wisdom, wit and knowledge in greater reverence. 

 This work after Schiela Driven by curiosity to apply unusual art techniques and employing a Situationist approach, uses damaged printmaking paper unfinished, worn out lines and the blurred objects to signify the passage of time.

Key influences:
Rococo, Printmaking Techniques, Schiela, Sacred Feminine Artefacts.  Titian, Ovid.

Media:
Ink, embossing fluid, Orchid juice.
 
Louise Whitham MA trained at Central St Martins School of Art and completed a BA in Textiles and Printmaking at Camberwell School Of Art. She is part of The Bad Behavious Artists Collective.


 

Jack Blackburn - ARTIST'S BIO



Titanic Arts Club  Exhibition 26 May-1st June.

I’ve dabbled in many types of art in my life but settled on being  a no fucking around, stand in front of an easel, with a palette and a paintbrush,  painter of people. I even wear a smock and a beret!


 I did graffiti for a while I suppose that was public. I do remember I used to put up stuff in raves back in the early 90s. I would totally cover a railway arch with my work which at the time was these massive psychedelic paintings. During the day as we were setting up everyone would say “Wow they look great!” but then when night time came and the disco lights came on you couldn’t fucking see them at all because I wasn’t smart enough to use U.V. paint. It was hilarious
