I demonstrate remarkable self control in the presence of artworks by Avital Scheffer. Every fibre of my body cries out to touch, caress and pick up these attractive ceramic artifacts. The objects ooze Middle Eastern culture from the faded sun drenched colours to the faded painted Hebrew inscriptions on parts of the works.
Scheffer creates objects that evoke Arabian nights with their wonderful curves and decorative shapes. From the narrow necks and pointed stoppers ro the curvey bodies of these vessels there is a historical reference to all of her work.
I love her work and have the gallery sheet and some pics below

Jimmy Langer works in print on paper and print on transparent perspex. Each form involves layered elements that can be swirling abstract or almost tartan like geometric interwoven strong coloured grids.The perspex sheets are playful in that the viewer can get a different sense from any angle you care to view them from
Pics below give you a sense of Langer’s work

James Rowell creates images using rich layered thickly applied acrylic paints in vibrant colours. He starts with a pre-existing image and sets out to reimage it in a new creative way. His images are identifiably anchored in other images but are distinctively a Rowell image. Several images include text quotes stenciled into the paint. I found the explanations from James in the gallery helpful.
Below are pictures and gallery materials.
