Signet Contemporary Art, Kings Road presents landscape artists

Rosanne Barr & Claire Wiltsher alongside with Contemporary

Abstract painters Sara Sherwood & Vita James.

Rosanne Barr is a Scottish landscape artist, born in 1981 in the

Scottish village of Gartocharn, south end of Loch Lomond. She

studied Art and Design at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art

and Design graduating in 2003 with a First Class Honours Degree.

Rosanne paints instinctively, inspired by shifting skies or a distant

light or colour on the horizon. Using large brushes she swiftly

creates a sense of movement in each painting. Paint is applied

directly onto the Canvas, creating a fresh appearance often with

vivid colours. Roseanne builds up layers producing interesting

textures and depth.

Sara Sherwood creates vibrant and expressive works of art, her paintings of London and other skylines

reveal cities as we have never seen them before. Painting in oil on canvas she takes iconic and legendary

buildings and paints them into cityscapes full of colour and drama. As a contemporary artist Sara paints

with colours instinctively, blending with brushes and using a palette knife with intuition and spontaneity.

She believes "Inspiration comes from a source far greater than me, nature and everyday moments".

Claire Wiltsher is a professional Landscape painter working from her studio in the New Forest. Claire's

Paintings capture the different weather and mood of land and sea. She states that " total recognition

inhibits the imagination". She has a Master’s degree in Fine Art, and has exhibited in solo shows

throughout Britain as well as been a finalist in many competitions.

Vita James is a Contemporary Abstract painter. Her art incorporates much of the encounters and

influences she has experienced throughout her upbringing in rural Latvia and her life to date in London,

UK. Vita's work often reflects the contrast between the two worlds: complexity against simplicity, bold and

bright against pale and opaque, systematic control versus chaos and friction. Her work has evolved many

different forms and techniques - mixed media, photo based collages, sketches, oil and acrylic, abstraction

and systematic methodology.
