Lubna Chowdhary’s Ceramic Tiles

Lubna Chowdhary (www.lubnachowdhary.co.uk) is a London-based artist who works internationally. She creates richly-colored, modular compositions on tiles through a wide variety of precisely controlled ceramic techniques. Chowdhary’s artwork has been featured in interior and exterior architectural spaces. Her recent commissions include BBC, Conran and Partners, and Bellway Homes. Working in collaboration with architects, designers and art consultants, her project proposals are developed to fit the needs of the brief. Her work is available for purchase through her website.

We had the pleasure of framing several collections of her tiles, grouping them and arranging them to create two new compositions. We used handmade floater frames for both groupings of tiles. One had a light teak finish and the other had a dark teak finish. It was a challenge to get all the tiles to appear to be flush with each other since they had varying thicknesses. Together, the tiles unify to create an image, but the floater frame preserves their 3-dimensionality and reminds us that they are individuals as well as parts of a whole.

Photographer Wendy Paton’s ‘Nuit Blanche’ at Sous Les Etoiles NYC

We are pleased to announce returning client and esteemed photographer Wendy Paton will be exhibiting her black and white silver gelatin print series, Nuit Blanche, from May 30th to July 11th at Soho’s Sous Les Etoiles Gallery. A recent publication of the works published by Kehrer Verlag under the title Visages de Nuit (Faces of Night) will be available for purchase and signing at the opening reception on Thursday May 30th, 6-8pm. In this series Paton has captured nocturnal scenes from unfamiliar settings, when she believes “people have the freedom to be as they wish”. We’ve very much enjoyed working with Wendy to preserve and display her craft in the most aesthetically enhancing way, and encourage all to view first-hand these expressive images at Sous Les Etoiles in the coming weeks.
