David Paskett was born in 1944 in London. He studied fine art at Hornsey College of Art. His distinctive watercolour technique is founded in oil and tempera painting with emphasis on drawing. Intrigued by still life groupings seen on streets and waterways, his work is characterized by detail, clear shadows, controlled tone and rhythmic repeated pattern.

 

In love with color, Shirley Trevena relies on her only instinct to paint. Composition, tones, texture effects: everything is achieved in total independence from the rules. Thanks to her, we understand better how the act of creation is inseparable from a certain freedom.
