YELENA POPOVA. Untitled, 2017. Single line drawing. Pencil on Watercolour paper, unframed. 23 x 31cm.

Based at Primary Studios in Nottingham and an alumni of the RCA, Popova’s work is a part of many public and private collections including most recently The Arts Council Collection, Zabludowicz Collection and Saatchi Collection. She had a major solo exhibition at Nottingham Contemporary in 2016.

Fortuna cigarettes are one of Spain’s biggest exports.

The Costa Blanca was and still is the most popular holiday region, with Benidorm being the most visited destination by British tourists.

Louisa Chambers. Silvery, 2017. Gouache on card. 22 x 16cm

Louisa Chambers lives and works in Nottingham. Recent paintings are close up studies of reconfigured patterns from found fragments of printed fabric and paper. The colours are not true to the original sources and instead are intuitively selected. She is interested in the printed patterned tessellations that are on the surface of these forms and when manipulated create other spaces, angles and areas of illusion. These works are part of on-going research into depiction and visual perception on two and three dimensional surfaces.

An Alumni of UCA in Farnham and the Royal College of Art in London, Louisa exhibits widely in the region and beyond. Recent selected exhibitions include Veneer, Wirksworth (co-curated project); Precision of Thought at SE9 Container Gallery, London; Razzle Razzle at Transition, London and Drawn for Something Else at the Rogue Project Space in Manchester.
