'Liv Holding Breast'
"I’ve been a fan of Evie’s striking work for a while and love this direct, intimate portrait. The subject appears to be staring directly at and even through the viewer with an unflinching, powerful gaze. I am very much looking forward to her show at Taymour Grahne this spring."
"There’s so much to engage with in this work. It is simultaneously raw and gentle, and the use of colour really adds to the drama of the piece; the stormy nature of the dark skies seem to hover forebodingly above the three figures. I love Jack’s mark making and varied use of surfaces including works on paper, canvas and cardboard - his paintings have been firmly on my wish list for some time!"
'to be here to arrive'
"I was not familiar with Ewelina’s work before discovering her via Seam and love her subtle use of form and materials. The finish is sensitive and alluring and would make a wonderful addition to any collection."
"I am consistently drawn to bright, impactful colour, and I love the dramatic use of it in this piece, and the intriguing suggestion of both figurative and abstract forms. The sense of movement which draws the eye upwards through the work is wonderful."

"I have found my clients are becoming increasingly adventurous in terms of the varied materials they are looking for for their collections. Rashmi’s work displays beautiful technique and craftsmanship and the delicate use of colour and suggestion of movement is stunning."
