Expressing a sense of hope, strength and the dynamism of an abandoned yet lived-in space, Jo’s creations are visual poetry, of passing time and lives lived.

Sam has worked on several collections over the years and has solo showed in Berlin, Sydney, and London with several more shows planned into 2018. Recently he undertook a 6-month project focusing on the effects of Hydraulic Fracturing within the UK and gave an artist’s response in the form of 52 separate images, each titled with a place name where planned fracking was to take place. He has also completed a major installation for the Novotel, Canary Wharf, in London and an installation of three-dimensional metal ‘bullet casings’ entitled Into the Abyss which represents a response to global warming.
The shells used are made out of brass and in fact are recycled artillery shells, along to steel shells fabricated to look like silos. These were predominantly brass sculptures made using coffee and oils.
Sam’s upcoming exhibition: “OF THE LAND” solo show at Curious Duke Gallery on the 3rd of May 2018, where he will present his new collection of works which touch base with the coast, the woods, ancient pathways, hills, trees and all the natural elements.

Tagsmart discovers Rod Jones, a Southern Californian artist known to be the creator of receptive abstract patternism.
Rod Jones says: “I push my chosen art style with every painting I do. Some are more successful than others. But I’m not afraid to challenge either the viewer or myself. If I can use color and form in an eclectic way and still maintain some semblance of continuity, then I am accomplishing my goal.”
The style he embraced is one that evolved from initially painting in the Impressionist style. Today his art is considered by many to be especially authentic. When viewed, the body of his art has a common theme yet each piece clearly stands on its own. His work is constantly evolving and the style that he has created is open-ended and has no restrictions.
His style has been named Receptive Abstract Patternism™, a term coined by his daughter. She determined that the style revolves around the artist receiving conscious and sub-conscious signals and stimuli to create an image independent of common form, held together by the continuity and comfort of a pattern.
The style is ever evolving, but so many of the pieces that have been created are a testament to true artistic originality.
