Common Ground

17 Feb - 1 March | Private View Thurs 20 Feb 6-8pm. Two artists Rob Van Hoek & Emma Brownjohn both inspired by nature. Rob Van Hoek is a Dutch artist interested in cultivated landscapes which reveal patterns, lines, rhythm and planes. The artist lets us into a beautiful world, with manmade elements; mown fields, a line of trees all of these create a sense of harmony. To capture these patterns and lines an important part of his technique is to scratch, draw and rub into wet oil paint. Music also plays a vital role. A guitarist himself Van Hoek will listen to music while painting and often gives his paintings titles which are part of the song’s lyrics. ''Often there are no defining features in my work. I want them to be as universal as possible. Ideally I'd like the viewer to experience my world but also be transported to any city, sea, forest or field and enter their own realm of colour, memory, reality or dream'' Emma Brownjohn is a Brighton based artist, born 1969, she received a first class degree from Camberwell College of Arts. She has shown her paintings nationwide and her work has also featured in a Blackberry advert and has recently been made into a range of art cards called ‘Indian Summer’. ''My inspiration stems from many different sources, it could be some red berries on a white winter's day, or orange leaves falling in autumn, a flourescent jacket glimpsed amid the grey of the city or a turquoise boat sailing on a green sea. I like to paint the magic of the changing seasons with all the colours and shapes they bring, busy cities brimming with people and architectural variety, a beach dotted with the colours of summer, or the patterns and compositions described by the trees and fields in the countryside. I want to show how vast and diverse our planet is''
