CARL CAMERA
Comme Ca Art became aware of Carl Camera’s artworks through Instagram. His love of calligraphy, mixed with his street art style of painting executed perfectly on the canvas surface didn’t disappoint when we invited Carl over to the gallery to show us his works.
 
His unapologetic use of vivid fuchsia and bright yellow colours only adds to the beauty of his calligraphy craftsmanship. Carl is full of ideas of how he can transcend his work from the canvas to other surfaces including furniture, lighting and interior structures.
 
We are looking forward to seeing how Carl progresses in his art journey. This is definitely one artist to look out for.

PHIL CONSTABLE
Artist and printmaker Phil Constable works by layering images via screen print, utilising half-tone photography, symbols, mark making with gold and silver gilding on various surfaces including paper, board, and glass.

Documenting industrial sites and spaces, often focusing on trace images created by construction markings and/or graffiti that has often been covered or ‘painted out’ poorly. Phil finds these images and incorporates them as part of a readymade dialogue between the mediums of the mechanically reproduced image and the brush.

Multi-layered imagery encourages the viewer to visually explore the surface, the texture, and depth within the work echoing time and memory.

Having worked through the medium of printing and drawing on glass for sometime, the process of working backwards relates to the mapping of thoughts then sealing them by the encapsulation of silvering. When viewed as a finished piece, the distorted reflection of the silvering creates tension, an interaction between the viewer and negative space.

Born in Canterbury, Kent in 1971 Phil Constable graduated from Liverpool John Moores University in 1995 with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art followed by a MA  in Creative Technology at Salford University in 1998.

BIG H
While studying Graphics Design in College and Fine Art in University as an artist BIG H, AKA Henry Chan was influenced by Pop / Graffiti and Traditional Fine art and by artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Henri Matise, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Banksy who’s use of imagery and sometimes vibrant colours reminded him of his youth.



BIG H’s art is mainly a mixture of graffiti and pop art with popular culture often his subject matter and his art often satirising current issues in society such as celebrity culture, power and commercialism.



With his art BIG H wants to arouse the senses and stir the spirit and wants his art to visually stimulate the observer through strong images, colour, patterns and words.



BIG H enjoys the look and feel of tight and accurate geometric lines mixed with strong vibrant colours and bold patterns often surrounding a central figure from the world of popular culture.

Henry has recently completed his MA in Fine Art and is currently working on a series of paintings influenced by 21st century Icons.

REBECCA DAVY
Rebecca Davy’s primary concern when creating her artworks is the act of painting itself. Her focus is on what she describes as “the seductiveness and sensuousness of pushing paint on canvas”. She is particularly attracted to painting the colourful, the ephemeral and the kitsch, constructing paintings with a strong element of light and colour that satisfies both the subject and its medium.
 
For her, sticky and colourful things such as sweets and icing are good subjects for the visceral qualities of paint. Bringing these two elements together produces a new realm between kitsch and the hyper real, paintings that flow into being from the artist’s imagination.
 
Rebecca Davy is a Manchester-based artist. Since completing her MA in Fine Art in 2006, she has taken part in exhibitions abroad, and featured in exhibitions in London and Liverpool.
