Adrian Pritchard was born in 1973 in Lancashire and did his
Masters at Slade School of Art. Adrian has a deep rooted
interest in physics and therefore has a scientific approach to his
art, which culminates in his creative use of geometric patterns.
His work has always been a play between ordered and disordered
states, using viscous fluids in a free flowing way. Patterns are
formed partly by design and in part by happy accident. Adrian’s
source material for this series stems from decorative Islamic art.
Simple forms such as the circle and the square are combined,
duplicated, interlaced and arranged in intricate combinations.
Ceramic tiles are also an important source material, but

explores the materiality of his medium, allowing the paint to
create is own shapes and patterns through gravity and time.

Georg was born in Germany in 1961 and studied as a stonemason
in the marble centre of Europe in Carrara, Italy, where he honed
his skills. His pieces explore space in the most sublime way, he
creates incredible free flowing forms, abstracted lines, which
interlock and curve graciously around a central point. What is
remarkable is the sense of lightness, the fluidity of movement,
which defies the hard medium of marble.
Georg Scheele has seen the great Modernist sculptures, such as
Hepworth, Moore and Arp. These artists played with absence,
where what is removed is just as important as what remains.
Scheele’s work has a sensual delicacy, which spirals into itself,

generating fascinating interconnections. These sculptures are
poetic, they are tightly controlled yet are conversely loose and
free. They confound our expectations of what marble carving
should be in beautiful and brilliant ways.

George Underwood was born in 1947 and studied at Bekenham Art
School. He worked on numerous books and album covers, including
the artwork for David Bowie’s Hunky Dory and Ziggy Stardust. David
Bowie a friend and collector has said that, ‘George has refined his
work to the point where I would put him among the top figurative
painters coming out of the UK right now’.
There is something rather dark and mysterious about his figures, a
nod to the medieval Gothic. George takes this odd array of stern
looking characters and plays with symmetry and repetition.

At times, we enter a dream-like surreal world, where the faces
appear on curved paper cut outs, a strange wall of geometric
shapes and forms. These expressionless faces, muted colours and
refined costumes are all part of Underwood’s psyche. This weird
and wonderful world appeals to numerous collectors from around
the world.

Pascale Fay was born in La Rochelle, France and moved to Portugal
after falling in love with the country and its people. Her experience
as a graphic designer allowed her to create rich and thick areas of
paint, initially covering the canvas in black to make for a darker
tableau whereupon she layers blocks of colour, making a simple
and refined world for her fantasy character ‘George’ to explore.
There is real physical presence to this dream-like realm.
‘George’ is her avatar and is a quirky, mysterious character, like a
1950’s detective he explores the world around him always curious
and discovering the new. At times ‘George’ climbs up to heaven
to reach for the stars at others he stares at posters perhaps
looking for clues.

‘George’ and what will he get up to next? Pascale denies us any
direct answers but delights us with a character on a voyage of
