  Spring/summer issue out now

The power of nature is all around us, affecting our lives as humans in strange and unexpected ways.

Sometimes physical, sometimes profound, we have all experienced those moments at the hands of nature. The feeling deep within our souls when we see a sunset that stirs a thousand memories, unexpected rain that soaks through to the skin and the exhilaration from the sound of fierce, crashing waves.

It is little surprise that nature provides a constant source of inspiration for many artists, whether that is found visually - in the shapes and forms of trees and rocks, the flowing lines of rivers and the colours of a changing sky - or spiritually - in the emotion felt in places of wild, natural beauty -holding onto these elusive moments through paint, clay and photograph.

We are all connected to nature, whether we accept it into our daily consciousness or keep it on the edge of our peripheries. The work of these artists brings it to the fore, and as viewers we can all find a common balance as we consider our place within the natural world.

Artists
 

  Rodney Durso interview

Rodney Durso's career in fine art has been informed by a prolific background in graphic design. He started creating art in 2006, when he moved into his New York City based studio. Since then, his work has taken on new depth and meaning, and he has created a 400+ strong body of work, but his painting and collages are still grounded in a strong sense of graphic organization, colour, type and imagery that speaks to his earlier work as designer. Stories organically unfold as he works, finding a narrative that comes to life with the freedom of creating something new, finding a balance in the unstructured, where nonsensical bits of text, symbols and strokes of colour come together with no purpose other than to elicit feeling. Exploration of self, self-reflection and inner discovery are recurring themes, and Durso considers each piece as a kind of self-portrait...

   

  Jean Louis Frenk interview

Working both in paint and clay, Swiss American artist Jean Louis Frenk creates otherworldly objects and images, using them as totemic portals to document his studio practice. Visually appealing to the viewer, there is balance and poise and a sense of organic growth in his work, seen through forms that curve and bend; elegantly reaching or spilling over like hot lava. Although taking a different approach with each, the artist's two mediums are interlinked and coexist within his practice. The repeating patterns, shapes and colour palettes of the paint translate from the page into the tactile ceramic vessels which make up his main body of work, while often exploring spaces not possible in clay. Frenk is based in Brooklyn and Coxsackie, New York...

   
  Laura Carter interview

Lines of different viewpoints run across Laura Carter's photographs; skylines, shorelines, lines from tracks in snow and towering tree trunks. She considers each space and how it is experienced differently by each individual, questioning laws of geometry in which horizon lines are established as a boundary, and yet full of possibilities. Her practice is a physical exploration of our perceptions of subject matter, through an experimental approach to her medium in terms of how a photograph establishes as an object. Based in Bath, Carter's photographs have been exhibited in the UK, including at the OXO Tower in London. She has been shortlisted for this year's Royal Arts Prize with '2.42 Miles', a series of landscapes taken at her personal eye level...
