Artist Uncovered: Gabrielle Reith

*

Gabrielle Reith reinvents the landscape. She flattens it and then reintroduces depth with patterns and texture. By breaking it down into distinctive shapes, motifs and dark outlines that delineate the blocks of colours, the artist creates a universal language of signs and symbols.

Artist Uncovered: Elspeth Lamb RSA

*

Titles like 'March Hare', 'Miracle Fish' and 'Milagro' give us an inkling of Lamb's predilection for fairy tales and enchantment and this is indeed confirmed unmistakably by the allusion to 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' in the cover image of her website and by the artist's long blond hair that echoes the famous golden locks.
