Marnie Scarlet Interview

Marnie Scarlet Interview

Today we are very excited to be introducing the fabulous work of artist Marnie Scarlet.  Marnie is an underground sensation and one of the top names in fetish performance.  She has travelled the world performing in her extraordinary latex costumes, every detail adding to the excentric drama and unique style of a fascinating and surreal artist.  She works as a latex designer and has made some outrageous outfits, the next step was to create stories to compliment her spectacular costumes, so for the last six years Marnie has mixed her talent for design with incredible performance and outstanding flare.  She has just held her first solo exhibition ‘Kingdom of the Blind’ in London featuring a vast collection of ‘wearable costumes’ and ‘un wearable art pieces’ as well as special performances of her 3 favourite show pieces. Marnie wants to go bigger and bolder we can only imagine what she will do next. She already mixes body piercing, Burlesque and an element of Cabaret in extravagant performances that will certainly shock or amaze you! We think Marnie’s art is wonderfully weird and beautiful, she is an incredible artist with a bold style and powerful impact.  Marnie will be a special guest at the FLUX exhibition in London 2015, we urge you to come along and view for yourself her outstanding performance art and creations!   Thank you so much Marnie for sharing your work with us.  (more…)

Eleanor Buffam is an artist living in London who creates work that explores visual perceptions, both conscious and unconscious.  Eleanor works in mixed mediums, often combining photography and painting to produce multi layered work that is strong and impactful.  She is an artist that draws inspiration from both the subjective and objective nature of our visual landscape, dreams and memories.  Tying together her subconscious thoughts and reality she produces work that is a visual interpretation of life and past times with emotion and drama.  Eleanor has had several solo shows in the USA, the UK and Europe and has exhibited widely in group shows worldwide.  We love her ability to capture a moment, the feelings and emotion which are so evident within the eyes and facial expressions of the people she depicts and the haunting nature of pieces such as ‘hell’ that portray tortured souls with a dark beauty and extreme emotion.  Eleanor is without a doubt an exceptionally talented artist who is constantly striving to understand the fragments of alternative realities, and produce art that captures the essence of emotion in all forms.  Thank you Eleanor for sharing your work with us,  we are very excited that you will be joining us at the London FLUX exhibition in 2015.  (more…)

Gregory Milburn Interview

Gregory Milburn Interview

Gregory Milburn is an artist from Winchester, Virginia who creates bold, powerful art that is mesmorising to view.  He’s an artist who uses loose brushstrokes with a sense of dark abandonment, energy and passion.  The work that Gregory creates mixes urban culture with rich colours he portrays a wildness and love of surreal landscapes and edgy narratives.  His dramatic ideas and visions from a creative mind are nothing short of spectacular to view.  Gregory is on our ‘one to watch’ list, his output, talent and ability to produce work with a wildness of style is beautiful, edgy , unique and a pleasure to view.   Placement of marks appear so natural with a rawness that all add to the impact of his work.   There is a sense of a chaotic mind mixing the sensibility of life and art onto canvas.  We love your work Gregory and are excited to follow your creative journey.  Thank you for talking to The Palette Pages and sharing your expressive and wonderful art with us.  (more…)

Emma Caton Interview

Emma Caton Interview

I’m very excited to introduce the work of the incredible artist Emma Caton. Emma studied at the University of the West of England (UWE) from 1994 to 1997 and gained an honours degree in Fine Art.  Emma is not limited by medium, and creates a varied selection of work, ranging from traditional drawing to performance and media installations.  She is a curator, an artist and guest speaker, a talented and diverse artist that has the ability to stop you in your tracks with the impact of her work.  Pushing boundaries and constantly developing and experimenting with new techniques Emma is an exceptionally exciting artist that manages the almost impossible task of creating varied work that remains in tune with her style.  “In all my work, I try to express common experience via forms of elegant visual poetry in the hope of gaining a deeper sense of connection. And maybe even discovering a sense of purpose along the way.

There is an obvious need for Emma to express  her thoughts and feelings within her work, she creates art that makes you think, look and linger on both the meaning and the beauty.  There is such a depth to the work Emma creates and a feeling that every part of her is expressed within her art. She is a force of creativity who has no option but to unleash herself onto whatever medium is right for her expression.  Emma has widely exhibited throughout the UK and is also the co-founder of Neon Contemporary a non-profit arts organization supporting the arts.  Emma is a spectacular artist and an inspiration that we are totally captivated by and are very proud to be featuring her work on the The Palette Pages and within the 2015 FLUX exhibition.  Thank you so much Emma for talking to us.  (more…)
