    CHEN Yi Ching is one of the rare contemporary Nihon-ga artists in Europe, who has lived in Japan and studied under renowned Japanese masters. Admitted to the faculty of Fine Art, at the Kyoto City University of Arts in 2002, she was a student of YAMAZAKI Takao, the distinguished master of the Nitten movement. In 2003 she won the prestigious Grand Prize of the Shouhaku Museum with her painting entitled « Kabocha » (« Pumpkin »). Her talent and potential were recognized by UEMURA Atsushi, one of Japan’s great masters of Nihon-ga and she was awarded a studio and the opportunity to study under his guidance following her Masters Degree. In 2004 she had her first solo show at the Nasic Square Gallery in Kyoto. Greatly admiring the work of the late 19th century Impressionists, CHEN Yi Ching moved to France in 2004. She continues to develop her own artistic research and pedagogy in Paris where she has an established Nihon-ga atelier. She is the author of the first book in French on the practical technique and history of Nihon-ga « Découvrir la Peinture Nihon-ga , Art Traditional Japonais », published in September 2012 by Editions Eyrolles.

    Her love of mark making and gesture on the paper or canvas and her joy at the physicality of painting and moving the paint are all apparent when you stand before an abstract painting by Alison McKenna. The artist says 'I use pencil marks to express extensions of space, weight and movement, defining the end to a painting and anointing the work with a finishing touch in graphite. For me, painting, drawing and sculpture are consecrated actions and their creation is an initiation. I consider the process of making art as magical, and that once a painting or drawing is complete I have taken myself through a process that connects me to a deeper knowledge and a purer place.'

    Working predominantly in metals Melling creates an eclectic range of sculpture and contemporary furniture. Highly aesthetic in nature, you will find much of his work curvaceous and tactile. Showing in Miami his current collection ‘Elements’ which focuses on Earth, Air, Water and Fire, and describes the reaction when those elements meet. Developing the collection he concentrated on the process of using repetitive form of material – flat steel bar, to generate concepts and capture the movement of elemental reactions. The forms are designed appropriately for indoor display, but are perfectly suited to larger scale and outside installations for private or public spaces. Widely collected in the UK his sculptures are also held by collectors nationally and internationally. Melling states 'My practice includes producing Public Art and working with laser-cut designs, sometimes using softer materials such as wood and plastics. I also design and paint wall murals, which have transformed rundown public spaces. Often my commissions involve workshop related projects.

    Yuko describes her work with great insight ; 'Closing my eyes in a moment of quietness, I can see a waterscape in my mind. It is sometimes very dark and frightening. At other times, it is crystal clear with infinite expanse. It is my intention to express such water scenes in my work. My main works are based on graphite drawings of waterscape entitled "Water Spirits". This title "Water Spirits" was taken from a small work at an exhibition I saw at the Hayward Gallery in 1996, the Prinzhorn Collection from Germany, art works by psychiatric patients collected by Hans Prinzhorn who was a psychiatric doctor in Heidelberg at the beginning of the 20th century. There were many pencil drawings at this exhibition, and I found them very moving. These drawings were simple, yet represented images beyond consciousness. They continue to engage me and as in these works, my aim is to represent something beyond consciousness in my waterscape.'

    Jasia says: '“My work always begins with drawing. Originally my mark making on paper was by using graphite and charcoal because of my love of the line quality that it gives. I then began experimenting with brush and ink which enabled a new boldness and simplicity. I then began to go out into the landscape with just Chinese ink and a paintbrush to create drawings. My aim was not to draw literally what I saw before me but to capture some essence of the patterns of man’s mark on the land. Studies of plant structures and plant cells were the inspiration behind the early Seedprint series of twelve screen prints. These were made using translucent ink on squares of Chinese silk paper and had titles of Seedprint, Leafprint, Stem and Magnify. The square format enabled whole sets to work together beautifully either in a grid format or side by side in a single row. The Encounter Series of nine lithographs relates to the Silk Print series with the same square format but with larger and stronger brushstrokes. Each image is not contained but goes beyond the edge and is part of something bigger. Some of the images are calm and contained and others have a tension and energy. The title Encounters comes from the experience of moving through a space whether urban or rural.”
