Inside Shani Rhys-James' studio

Some short films about the work of Shani Rhys James, including a time lapse of her studio.


Artist statement

My desire to produce powerful, emotional paintings which are read for their content, their colour and their abstract elements. I have to be emotionally and mentally taken over by my paintings. They are seemingly direct ; I paint about the studio, the kitchen, the artist, my children, childhood memories. So imaginative and observational elements co-exist in each work.

Post Paris Projects...

Like many other artists, Sean Scully's work has sometimes been inspired by the city of Paris

In this video however, he talks about how he has begun to move away from urban influences and has started to derive his ideas from living in rural Germany.
