Portrait art - Just Chilling, Ischia, acrylic painting by Stella Tooth

Portrait artist Stella Tooth first visited the island of Ischia after reading Elena Ferrante’s book in which the island is featured. Sitting in a café overlooking a small, rocky beach, Stella found inspiration for this painting “Just Chilling” watching older, female friends sharing their cares, enjoying the ‘dolce fa niente’ of yet another sunny day.

Figurative Ceramic Art celebrating women by Ruty Benjamini

These two unique pieces are about “emergence”; out of water, out of winter, out of isolation and restrictions, into spring and into hope for the future.”

Ceramic artist Ruty is based in South London and has been with Skylark for many years.

Original prints for sale - The ocean - that magical liminal place.

During a visit to Ghana, West Africa, Corrine visited Labadi Beach near Accra. She took off her shoes and  stood at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. She recalls “it was breezy and warm, the sand was coarse and the waves quite powerful. The sand was drawn out with the waves leaving you slightly unsteady.”

Corrine later made this photo etching which captures that powerful feeling. It’s a very limited edition of only 6 prints at £75 each unframed. To purchase one of these prints please email Skylark 

Corrine was recently interviewed on Instagram Live, you can watch the interview here and learn more about her fascinating work.


Narrative art - Healing Power of Nature as used by the Shaman

Narrative artist Joel Sydenham says “This piece explores the idea of humanity being a mediator for the natural and spiritual world. In many indigenous cultures shamans are both medicinal and spiritual healers. They have an understanding of nature that allows them to find cures for various ailments. As a result they have a reverence for the natural world and see it as part of themselves and vice versa.”

Textural Art - Science meets Art - Copper trapped in kiln-formed glass.
