About the artists

Trespassing for Art II (2017) by Claire Cansick is magnetic in both colour and composition. Through the medium of pastel Cansick delivers a deliciously vibrant and emotional work, where pine green treetops crash against a volcanic forest floor. In particular, we love how large and looming the trees feel to an audience placed in a low perspective.

For Richard Storey pastel is the perfect medium for capturing the multiplicity of the human form. There is a clear classical inspiration present in Storey’s work, combined with a strong contemporary eye. Photo-realistic depictions of the naked body are overlaid and fused together; four different poses of four different people become one, with only a burst of colour to help decode the image. We love the way Storey’s pastel drawings showcase movement and communication.

Pastels are crayons made from pure powdered pigment and a binding agent. Pastels were initially only black, white and red, and were first used by the Renaissance masters Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo for sketching. Today, there are over 1,200 different pastel colours available on the market. Loved for their incredible blendability and vibrant colour, pastel drawings exploded onto the scene in the 18th century and were used primarily for portraiture. During the 19th century, the medium was adopted by Monet, Gaugin and Edgar Degas, who famously used pastels to capture the majesty of his dancers.
