Artists – photography, sculpture and paintings
Emily Claire Negus
We will be having an interactive photo project run by fine art and published Portrait photographer Emily Claire Negus.
Stuart Littlejohn is an established artist whose influences range from ancient and classical art, through to the Renaissance, Pre-Raphaelites, the Symbolists and Classicists of the nineteenth century. His work has also explored Ancient Egypt, the Western Mysteries, Grimoire and Underworld traditions. His paintings are in private collections around the world, and his unique style is immediately recognizable.
Besides presenting a talk, Charlotte will also be exhibiting her work (full bio above). In her own words: Everything holds life-force, energy and potential. I work with the memory held in remnants of the dead, the forgotten, the discarded and the rejected. I honour these memories through acknowledgment, then use the past as a foundation for new directions and realities.
