I look for rhythm and repetition in the landscape around us. Inspired by Fractal Geometry, I look for cycles and synthesis in the rock formations of a landscape, the foliage on trees or in the form of clouds. I make pen and ink sketches and mixed media drawings, which later evolve into oil paintings, celebrating rhythym, and colour. I use a synthetic palette making a brighter, bolder world but am concerned with our majestic landscape, history and National heritage. Aware of the increasing detachment and disregard from the world around us, I force the real world back before audiences to appreciate once more. I love the way a painting freezes an environment in a moment whilst allowing space for my reaction and emotion to be thrust upon the viewer.

I am Polish-British artist based in Rushden, UK. At age of 24 I left Poland and now for 16 years I have been living in England. I found art as my rescue from dark moments of disconnection from self. Now creativity and art are inseparable parts of my identity. Once there is art life makes some sense. I have a history of using mixed media and collage for creation of art journals in old books. I am inspired by many contemporary artist like Malcolm T.Liepke, Jenny Saville, Paula Rego just to mention few who are not afraid to explore human vulnerability and reality at the same time. Human form and expression of true people in daily life is a fascinating subject for me.

I was born in Bangladesh but spent most of my life in London and in Poland.

I am interested in investigating and expressing the emotional impact of political events upon a wide range of cultural groups, particularly religious and ethnic minorities.

I was taught Fine Arts in Bangladesh and developed his interests further through a Masters Degree in Design for Communication from Westminster University in London. My area of practice includes photography, painting, sculpture, text, installation, graphic design, illustration and poetry.

In 2006 I discovered my passion for art and have never looked back. After many years of painting figuratively I made a natural progression to abstract paintings. My paintings included a mixture of acrylic paint, oil sticks, charcoal and graphite. They are often inspired by the environment around me; mostly intuitive and expressive but involve calculated decision making about tonal quality, form, colour and unique mark making.

Mixed media artist, Fine Art BA (Hons)

I am an artist working with photography, paint and stitch.
My work is inspired by journeys and places I’ve visited, each one is personal and stirs memories.Working from my own photography I created Harris Hawk using netting and free motion embroidery. I use stitch and threads to expand the work outside of the normal constraints of the frame and bring movement to the subject

Josh Edgington

Website / Instagram

As an artist, Edgington’s work deals with the personal, memory, trauma and adversities. Often, if not indirectly, the works are informed by the artist’s own struggle with mental illness, working with themes of memory and trauma. Opting to work across a range of illustration, painting, drawing and textiles due to the plethora of opportunities within the mediums and techniques as well as a given sense of the personal, Edgington’s aim is to keep spontaneity, intrigue, sensitivity and a child like quality present in all works.

Portraits are a subject I tend to avoid as I’ve always felt less confident with creating an exact likeness. In this piece I researched and was inspired by Picasso, Warhol and the art of punk music. This textile piece is a self portrait using appliquéd fabrics, some of which are hand tiedye, hand embroidery and quilted using free motion machine embroidery.
