The Discerner Phil Davison’s work aims to revitalise cross stitch, proving its viability as a modern day graphic medium. In an attempt to achieve this he fuses this traditional hand stitching technique with imagery from his visual universe, a mix of street art and pop culture. Davison is particularly inspired by image reproduction techniques, be it in photography or a printing process, attempting to see if, and how, it can be recreated in cross stitch. To accurately render and mimic the original technique that inspired its conception demands a high level of precision, some pieces taking up to a year of hand stitching to complete. It is exactly this dedication to precision, acquired over a decade of working in couture fashion, and an interest in embroidering unusual surfaces, from organic egg shells to wooden skateboard decks, which drives Davison’s evolution of this craft into the realm of fine art.

The clever use of colour arrangement creates a genius trompe-loeil effect. Price: £13,000.00

Johan Wahlstrom Johan Wahlstrom is one of today’s brightest artists who is making a conscious effort to describe the social political landscape of our contemporary world. The work is relevant on many levels. His use of political iconography and brash painting style brings to the fore a raw juxtaposition of issues facing everyday life. The use of corporate media’s images and information gathered from various news outlets are the underpinnings of his compositions. A narrative emerges that is a time capsule of our society today. A sharp critique of fascism and authoritarianism is a reoccurring theme throughout. In his current series, “House of Lies” Wahlstrom depicts a world full of deception, ignorance and chaos. In some of his monochromatic paintings streaks of black tears connect distorted faces, creating a chorus of potentially suffering voices in a singular composition. The titles of the work may be ironic at times but the painting’s narratives strike a true emotional chord with the politically engaged viewer. Lara Pan, Curator, New York, March 2016 Johan Wahlstrom was born in 1959 in Stockholm, Sweden, and is a fifth-generation artist on his mother’s side. Though art was in his blood, his first creative direction was rock and roll, where he had a successful and long career as a keyboardist and singer, touring with Ian Hunter, Graham Parker, Mick Ronson and many Scandinavian artists. After 18 years, the rock and roll life caught up with him. Wahlstrom moved to a small village in France where he did nothing but paint for seven years, part of that time under the tutelage of Swedish artist, Lennart Nystrom. Wahlstrom’s dark narrative paintings of heads and torsos in acrylic and ink are inspired by cryptic, often ironic social critiques that he collects on scraps of paper in his studio. Since 1999, Wahlstrom’s work has been displayed in galleries across Europe and the US.
