“Sometimes less can be more, it all depends on what you are trying to say. When I painted Eniola, I simply wanted to show the psychological interaction between artist and sitter.”

Graham Crowley

“Graham Crowley describes himself as a post-conceptual painter, seeing painting as a discourse and not a means of producing commodities to be liked, bought or matched with the right sofa. His work is a means of exploring big questions; some that arise out of the very act of painting and others that arise out of the current social, political and broader cultural situation that Crowley sees himself in. Crowley’s work is currently full of juxtapositions brought about by the push and pull of polar concepts that fascinate the painter; illusion and reality, authenticity and synthesis, the academic and the human”

Angela Bell

“The selection process when choosing images to use as a starting point is based on composition, character and nostalgic recognition. In my work I look not to dictate a specific meaning but rather to prompt either some form of recognition or inspire curiosity and for the viewer to determine their individual narrative. When painting I create a detailed study in oil then through a process of working back in to the surface and exploring marking making techniques, I distort, eliminate and manipulate the image to create a visual balance. These personal depictions of people’s lives have been retrieved and revived in the form of intimate oils. A rare group piece, this image uses negative space as a technique to create a focal point and lead the viewer in their engagement with the image.”
