Rose - Chintz - Studio 1 .jpg

The february Edit.


Rose Electra Harris

Chintz

These new works from Rose Electra Harris inject some much needed colour into February and are inspired by all things Chintz. However, with Rose’s skill for making sure nothing is too perfect - by mixing precise mark-making with abstract pattern - her drawings are in no way twee.

Growing up with an antique dealing father, constantly taking her to shops on the Goldborne Road and to markets, Rose has a keen eye for interiors, and whilst each object is recognisable to the viewer, they are also deeply personal portraits - insights into Rose’s world.

CHICA SEAL

Figurines

Continuing the theme of “kitsch” this month, Chica Seal takes inspiration from figurines in her latest series. She has a wonderful way of bringing the inanimate object to life, bestowing each figurine with character and comedy.

The pastel on paper Bird Prayer is a story you’ve just stepped into and Chica has distilled a moment of communication in the drawing. This would look great in a dark wood frame hung at eye level to join in the conversation.

Chica’s Eugen Sandow is a definite favourite. Leopard print and his well displayed strength are offset by the intense red. The image is inspired by Eugen Sandow’s pose in the Magazine of Physical Culture showcasing his bodybuilding physique and fashion forward exercise gear.

Another lovely work form Chica is After El Greco. The rosey tones pop against the green and draw you into those delicate lips and cheeks. Another one for a dark wood frame but hung higher maybe to feel looked at as you pass by.

Lisa Hardy

SPring Flowers

Lisa Hardy’s new series are welcome reminders that spring is almost upon us. Lisa’s A6 series invite you to buy the entire collection as a set - which could make for an impressive statement wall, or to curate your own selection of artworks from the series. In Spring Flowers, we’d be tempted by four of these combining 3,5,6 and 7 along a wall or putting 1 and 8 together for a more muted feel. 

Flowers in Enamel Jug 2 is a gorgeous piece from Lisa with the paper filled by a variety of layers and brush strokes that capture wonderful detail as well as a romantic softness. We start to see Lisa incorporate the enamel jug in her work - a reference to her recent collaboration with Edit58 on homeware.

Hester finch

Pastel Nudes

This pregnant pastel nude by Hester is a powerful addition to any collection. We see a celebration and fascination with the female body - her pregnant sitter allows Hester to employ a wonderful tonal range and contrasts of colour, light and shade draw out the prowess of the pregnant sitter - giving her an almost sculptural quality.

We always enjoy the honesty of Hester’s work. Her sitters are never beautified or objectified, and are not totally at ease. They are watched and dissected - with looming shadows suggesting an almost invasive light shone upon them (perhaps a metaphor for this honesty?).

Her other pastel nudes this month stare out at you with unknowable expressions and have us looking forward to How She Looks. We can’t wait to release the new works for our online exhibition and Hester’s work is sure to be a highlight. You register here to be the first to know when the exhibition is live. 

How She Looks

Untitled.jpg

Coming soon…

To coincide with International Women’s Day on March 8, artists Hester Finch, Venetia Berry,Alexandria Coe and Fee Greening have created new original artworks exploring the female gaze, exclusively for Partnership Editions.

The online exhibition will explore the female nude through the eyes of the female artists, reclaiming the form to explore How She Looks - She being the looker, not just the looked at.

Modernist Miniaturists

an Exhibtion at Benk and Bo, 15 Nov - 2 Feb

celebrating the small format in contemporary art

Modernist Miniaturists celebrates the beauty and intrigue of the small format in contemporary art. Miniatures have an often-underestimated power to captivate. Despite their small size, they are often dense in their richness and encourage the viewer to look a little closer and engage more intimately with a piece of art – rather than pass it by from a distance. In a generation where we are bombarded with over-sized visual signs and signals, miniatures are a treasured reminder that size is not everything.

All artworks are available to view at Benk and Bo from 15 November - 1st February 2019. An array of framed artworks as well as unframed pieces by each artist are available.

Autumn must-haves and styling inspiration


Camilla Perkins

Ovo Series

We absolutely love this new series of original artworks by Brighton-based artist and illustrator, Camilla Perkins.

Okay they might be somewhat challenging in terms of subject matter, but we are firm believers that art should not be there to match your cushions, it’s all about starting a conversation.

Style them like Camilla has in her own home - combining textures, artefacts and colours over a mantlepiece.

Camilla fireplace

Hester Finch’s ever-popular pastel nude drawings are a great addition or start to anyone’s art collection. We are very excited to have teamed up with Liberty London to produce fine art, limited edition prints of these artworks - available in store from end of September. In the meantime, these two originals are available through us.

As a collector of Hester Finch myself, I would style these in a black box frame (as seen in my own home, right) with uv glass to prevent the glare getting in the way of the detail and texture, or in a Tulip box frame which is a light wood that wold complement the Orange Nude in particular.

Orlando’s Lamps is the latest Screen Print by Rose Electra Harris. Orlando is Rose’s antique dealing father whose lamps these are. We love the unexpected colour pairings and tiles in the background. This could look amazing in a white box frame or event in a red or pink frame to play with the pop aesthetic.

This work was featured in last week’s Evening Standard Magazine.

Camilla’s oVo series were created in light of the recent birth of her daughter. The paintings explore a personal reflection on how through pregnancy, motherhood and loss we are all connected as Women.

She says: “We willingly give over our bodies in order to sustain a new life. You spend hours, days, months growing and then feeding this tiny human and wondering how many women for how many thousands of years have been doing this? It’s a process that seems so overwhelmingly ancient.

The oVo paintings pay homage to our most sacred and powerful organ, capable of simultaneously causing so much joy and pain.”


Hester Finch

Pastel Nudes

Hester Finch in situe

In her latest series, Hypnagogia, Venetia Berry seeks to capture the often hallucinogenic state in between being awake and asleep. Her sinuous figures are heavy lidded, but always with one eye open in the last vestiges of being awake. Her colours are hallucinatory in their palette and the bodies seem to be in the process of distorting.

Each artwork is an original coloured pencil drawing on paper and would look great as a series or on their own.

What we love this month and how we'd style it 


 

Venetia Berry

The Three Graces

These free-flowing sinuous nudes by Venetia Berry are created using ink and pen. They represent "the everywoman" rather than a specific person or body-type. Each is an original one-off artwork signed by the artist, exclusive to Partnership Editions (A3, £200). 

Style them like Willy Rizzo has done in his bedroom (pictured below) in a series, on a floral wall-paper or in dialogue with a photograph that also explores themes of womanhood.

Chica Seal  

Red Head& Face in the Woods

Chica Seal's artworks have an effortless feel to them, as if painted moments after waking from a dream. Her faces hark to strong-browed, statuesque Classical busts, but have a contemporary mood to them - imbued with recognisable expression and given names that suggest some sort of intriguing or witty narrative. 

We would love to style her work in a crisp, light filled room (as per the inspiration on the righthand image). we love the way pictures hang on columns in an a-symmetric way that creates the effect of an artist's studio or museum.

Julianna Byrne 

Sea Corals

Inspired by traditional botanical diagrams and by the pressed flower, Julianna's sea corals are a fabulous mixture of looking deliberate whilst also seeming as though they may have formed organically from ink spilt on the page. 

These look great styled as a series (as per the inspiration from Elle Decor above) and can create an amazing feature wall for any room. They can also hold their own by themselves, and look great in a gold frame for something more traditional or a floated in a white box frame for a more contemporary feel.

Jonathan Schofield 

The Recliners

These oil stick and pastel drawings hark to the colours of the French Riviera and bring to mind Matisse's blue nudes, but always with Jonathan's own spin on composition and eye for unusual colour pairing. 

We love the way that they have been styled here against a terracotta wall, and think that they could be at home on any wall colour; the bolder the better.

Alexandria Coe

Black and White Nudes

These A2 nude paintings by Alexandria Coe are made by applying a liquid masking tape to the paper, painted in the form of tumbling bodies. Alexandria then paints over the page with black acrylic paint, and after carefully peels away the tape to reveal the negative space on the page. 

We love the idea of pairing these with a dark Farrow and Ball wall, a rich green or dark grey, making the white of the page pop out.

6 tips for becoming an art collector

By Ellie Pithers

Georgia Spray, founder of Partnership Editions, in her east London home filled with work by artists she represents on her curated platform, including Rose Electra Harris, Jonathan Schofield, Hester Finch, Alice Irwin and Alexa Coe. Photos by Thea Løvstad and Alicia Waite.

 

When Georgia Spray's friends began asking her where they could buy affordable art, the 28-year-old Christie's and White Cube alumnus saw a gap in the market. She launched Partnership Editions in 2017, a curated platform that connects accessibly-priced, original artworks by emerging artists with would-be collectors - which makes her ideally placed to advise on how best to assemble a fledgling art collection. Here, she shares her tips with Vogue on how to become the next Peggy Guggenheim.
