About the Artist

Mireia de Coursey

Mireia de Coursey was born in 1980 in Barcelona. During a trip to Paris in the her early teens, she was struck with the powerful paintings of the avant-garde, particularly with the works of Jean Dubuffet, Art Brut, and Art Informel. After taking classes at various artist Ateliers scattered throughout Barcelona, Mireia enrolled at the School of Arts & Design Llotja.

Over the past decade, Mireia has explored a variety of styles, from neo-expressionist canvases to thickly textured abstract paintings. An artistic nomad, Mireia draws inspiration from her time spent travelling and living in varying locations around the World.

Working across a wide range of mediums, including painting, works on paper and sculpture, Mireia has continued to experiment with the materials of her art.

Across her diverse body of work, there are several recurring themes. She has continued to be fascinated by the natural world, creating richly textured canvases that recall the earthly materiality of Catalan painters such as Antoni Tapies, Joan Miro and Barceló, as well as compositions that explore the effects of light and the ever-changing colours of the sea. She has also explored the history and traditions of painting, exploring the medium’s traditional subjects and technical challenges through her experimentation with the treatment of light, colour and composition.

Mireia now works from a studio in London as she raises her young family in the city but has kept a studio in Catalonia, where she likes to go back to basics to reconnect with the essence of the act of painting undisturbed by the fast pace of city life.

Mireia’s artworks are collected by international private collectors around the world.

Biographies

Kate Dolan

Kate Dolan

Inspired by colours, forms and vistas found in the natural world, Kate Dolan is drawn to views of vast open spaces that occur both naturally and through the manipulation of man. Through her paintings, Dolan translates her emotional responses and experiences of the world. The loose spontaneity of brush strokes and gradually layered textures that she creates is sometimes interrupted with precise and determined forcefulness.
Fipé Gouge Merrall

Fipé Gouge Merrall

The monumental forms that Gouge-Merrall renders strike us as almost dream-like and metaphysical, their facial features obscured against the blocks and pools of colour that act as stages, props, and backdrops for each figure. The artist’s memories of moments and places inform the colours, textures and mood conveyed in each artwork, from bursts of bright colour reminiscent of her home city of Sydney to the forest greens and glacial blues that can be found in the landscapes of Sweden.
Jemma Day

Jemma Day

Using water-based oil paint, with wholly unique effect, Jemma Day paints directly onto wall-mounted canvases in her tranquil and light-filled studio overlooking the narrow Lanes of Brighton, usually working on multiple pieces simultaneously to maintain the momentum that creates such energetic paintings.
