ALIEN NATURE. Inspired by the organic shapes found in nature, Si’s work is a continuous evolution and exploration of alien nature creating giant seeds and pods that echo the tiny forms and structures of plant life. Si has worked consistently over the last 10 years exploring the world of plants and trees and translating his extensive knowledge into imaginary and fantastical seed- and pod-like structures. His thorough knowledge and respect of the natural materials he uses have enabled him to produce work that not only complements the beauty of wood but also tests its strength and structure to the extreme. With the Hollocones and Hollopods he works the sculptures extensively, paring down each piece to the least amount of wood imaginable leaving the most delicate lace-like structures. The resulting contrast of strength and lightness, solidity and space is architectural but in a most natural form. These giant, imagined seed pods seem familiar but also strangely other-worldly. Si makes them ‘human-size’ as if to remind us not to forget how much beauty there is around us that shouldn’t be missed; even the tiniest things are worthy of our attention.
Since art school I have been interested in the line between abstraction and the figurative. I like paint, its colour and texture and I like the way things look. So in my paintings I try to combine these elements, abstract, formal composition with figurative representations of everyday objects, things which in some way strike a chord with me and which I see on a daily or regular basis, shop windows, telephone booths, the metro underpass, television, vapour trails with city skylines, swimmers etc.
Collage, silkscreen and giclée prints made using recycled magazines and newspapers. Some prints are hand finished in gold and silver leaf.
Last year's launch of the Artist's Open House was quite a commitment, but one I am excited to repeat this year with my sister. In the last year I have launched my website and increased my collection to include the fancy of Brighton Pride and seaside zombies - only in Brighton! My collection will focus on images from New York, Ireland and these festivals. Welcome to Number 8, where the craic will indeed be good.
I spend my days collecting leaves and organic objects, before returning to my lab and transforming them into screenprints and photograms.
I am a painter and printmaker working with both oil and acrylic paints, fine art printmaking and use photography to record the constant changes taking place in the landscape. Latest work focuses on the countryside around Ditchling Beacon - an area of ancient histories, wildness and human traces fashioned by agriculture. I am interested in the vastness of big spaces and the transformations that are relentlessly taking place as the seasons evolve. The shifting light and its effect on the shape and form of the contours of the land also hold a fascination.
Neale is currently working on a project capturing familiar landscapes at dusk, dawn or bathed in moonlight. We are conditioned to perceiving photographs as “instants” in time…. This series challenges this familiar interpretation by capturing Long Exposures, revealing light, colour and hidden movement otherwise masked to the human eye by darkness. As each day ends, the earth cools, the wind drops. Silence and darkness prevail often accompanied by a natural stillness…. As morning twilight approaches, and then dawn, each new day begins with the sun rising from under the horizon, softly lighting the underside of the clouds with cool, gentle, colours that we rarely see during the day. This is Neale's first display of this ongoing series, together with other images captured from around Sussex and his travels.
Painting: Mixed media
Land, sea and life: landscape and semi-abstract, mixed-media paintings. I am inspired by the changing light, detail and wildness in landscapes and seascapes. My primary medium is watercolour but I also use inks, gouache, acrylic and graphite.
