Chris Polunin

Magdalena Morey

Ann Cowan

Born in Newcastle in 1989, Chris Polunin was always most interested in the art of the old masters. His search for a classical education in art led him to The Angel Academy in Florence and The Edinburgh Atelier of Fine Art where he underwent rigorous training based on that of 19th century ateliers. 
Philosophically he is most inspired by Cezanne’s lifelong search for the ideal composition while achieving the vibrancy of the Pre-Raphaelites is his technical aim. He creates a sense of drama in inanimate objects with strong lighting and a sense of slight tension.

Based in Edinburgh, Ann’s work has featured in many exhibitions. Ann spends time drawing on location and takes inspiration from the architecture and cityscapes near her home.

Many of Ann’s works develop directly from her sketchbooks in which initial ink drawings are overlaid with collage and acrylic or oil to create an emotional response to her surroundings.
