Rhed Fawell

I studied Fine Art at Middlesex University and then spent a year at the art school Cooper Union, New York. I taught at the art school Kiad in Maidstone Kent and for many years taught as a senior Lecturer on the Graphics BA course at Middlesex University. I have recently relocated from London to Edinburgh where the majority of my time is now spent in my studio space in Edinburgh. I’ve been a member at East London Printmakers in Hackney for many years and now currently a member at Edinburgh Printmakers.

My own work uses collage, drawing and finally printmaking to explore the deconstruction and reconstruction of images. This process allows me to conceptually play with a theme or thought. By deconstructing the reality of image I can then begin to tell my own story by creating a new poetical narrative. My works appear as dreamlike images in which fiction and reality meet, well-known tropes merge, and meanings shift. These multilayered images arise in which the fragility and instability of our seemingly certain reality is questioned.
The pictures create their own stories, as I develop the pieces they take on a life of their own, forming narratives that are completed in the viewer’s imagination. What the viewer reads into each image is as important as what was in my own head as I construct them; they can be interpreted in different ways depending on who is looking at them. So what seems difficult to one person can appear beautiful to another, what is innocent in the eyes of one viewer can appear provocative or dark to another. 

There are personal stories behind some of the pictures but each should then become personal to the viewer, the original narrative does not need to be specifically understood.

Emily Moore

Photographs, taken to record her own travels and experiences, are often the starting point for Emily Moore's landscape based work. Moore is drawn to the patterns and forms found within the natural environment and the contrasting, geometric shapes and lines of the man-made structures which inhabit it. Her work, which encompasses a range of media, explores the tension between these two conflicting themes, attempting to find an overall balance within the final composition. A strong architectural influence is apparent in Moore’s work, which often draws attention to overlooked everyday constructions such as pylons, towers and stairways. The physical act of creating a piece, the surface and materials, has always been an important part of Moore's practice. She developed her unique style of painting during her final year at Edinburgh College of Art, where she worked directly onto wooden panels, constructing the image in individual detailed layers, whilst retaining elements of the natural wood beneath.

Emily Moore graduated with a first class degree from Edinburgh College of Art in 2013. In 2012 she was awarded the Royal Scottish Academy Keith Prize for the best student work and during her final year she was selected for the Saatchi New Sensations Longlist. Following graduation Moore was shortlisted as one of ten finalists for the Griffin Art Prize, appearing in an exhibition at The Griffin Gallery in London, where she was awarded the Griffin Art Prize People's Choice Award and a sponsored artist award. Since graduating Moore has shown her work internationally as well as regularly exhibiting at the Annual Royal Scottish Academy Open Exhibitions.
