About The Artist

I am a Sussex-based stitch artist with a farm-based studio on the Sussex and Surrey border.

Mark making with thread has been fundamental to my art since my teenage years. Both free machine and hand embroidery are central to my work. Colour, and the lack of it, play vital roles. My machine embroidery is often monochromatic; I am very drawn to the black line of cotton thread on plain canvas although at times, if the subject matter calls for it, I will introduce colour. On the other hand, my hand embroidery explodes with colour and texture.

I am inspired by the wider environment and of that around me; from the back garden, local surroundings, photographs and images from around the world. A City and Guilds embroidery course led to Reigate School of Art and Fine Art courses, still using my embroidery skills.

I was invited to join the ShedArt artist cooperative and have been a member ever since, exhibiting in many venues throughout Surrey and Sussex. Being amongst many painters, I have been enticed by the medium and found it to be a pleasant alternative.

I am also a member of an East Grinstead-based art group, Example, which has undertaken two Arts Council funded exhibitions within the local community.

About The Artist

I am an architect and started trying to paint about 6 years ago when I moved to Brighton from London. I was very much inspired by the South Downs and the coastline around Brighton.

I use acrylics and have taught myself by trial and error. I am currently trying to teach myself to paint using watercolours.

About The Artist

“Quietly creating contemplative contemporary landscapes.”

Born January 1962 in Guildford, Surrey, Graham Swain went to Portsmouth Art College to study painting after gaining an honours degree in Architecture.
His rich influences are many and varied; a priviledged education in Surrey, the third son of a senior Scotland Yard detective, marrying Emily, an actress from an acting family. His creative gifts were realised at an early age as treble soloist singing and recording in the major cathedrals of Holland, Belgium and Northern France, including Notre Dame Paris, Chartres, Rheims, Laon and the Palace of Fontainbleau.

Quality of line, purity, colour relationship and proportion and playing with perspective are the main considerations when creating his contemporary and thought-provoking landscapes.
'Pure creation and beauty is everything to me, where every mark matters.'

Also, the beauty of calligraphy often forms a structure to hang his constant and continual layering of marks and thoughts within and around landscape.

"Graham's response to landscape is contemplative. Like an elaborate game of chess, works evolve through time. Creation becomes a challenge as every mark is considered as the aesthetic process unravels towards sublime resolution. Graham's preoccupations are undoubtedly formal, but his technique relies on more than simply a conscious arrangement of shape and colour. Graham aims to intuitively distil the essence of his visual experience in a much more unlimited way. Landscape provides the ideal motif; unrestricted by figures or buildings, an exploration is permitted which ultimately pervades pure creation."

Sally-Ann Schilling, MA History of Art, The Courtauld Institute of Art, Former Art Historian and Lecturer, Tate Modern, London.
