Jo Hummel, Susan Laughton, Karine Leger & JFK Turner: Initial Sighting

7 July - 1 August 2018

Introducing four new Artists to &Gallery.

Sussex artist JFK Turner’s work is concerned with the unnoticed ephemeral elements of everyday life; found objects, marks, stains and the natural effect of time. The objects collected from the street form the basis of the work.


Joanne Hummel ( b.1982 UK) lives and works in Isle of Wight, trained at the Royal College of Art London and was hailed as ‘the next generation to turn its back on Emin and Hirst’s conceptual works’ by the Observer.


A graphic artist by profession, Canadian Karine Léger began to explore her interest in painting in the early 2000’s. Over the ensuing years, her artistic vision evolved through photography, collage and painting.


Cheshire artist Susan Laughton worked in architecture for twelve years before returning to education to study art.  Her paintings and drawings evolve from half-remembered glimpses seen from the corner of the eye, fleeting juxtapositions elusive to photography, the dislocated reverie of long car journeys, or from more studied compositions.
