During the 1990s, with Brit Art on the rise, figurative draughtsman and painter, Mark Demsteader found himself surrounded by an art market
dominated by conceptual art.
In the difficult years that followed however he finally
found massive success, especially following his recent popular drawings of
actress Emma Watson, and earning several notable awards including The Lyceum
Prize and The Sidney Andrews Scholarship in the process.
His incredible work, a combination of original charcoals,
pastels and oils, has undoubtedly renewed interest in traditional life drawing
and classic figurative paintings. His drawings typically feature a beautifully balanced
combination of the detailed, closely observed upper torso leading to equally striking expressive
line work below.

Project from James George uses 3D scans for portraiture which transition in form and appearance, shifting in identities:
I have a writing practice: at regular intervals, in a stream of consciousness I list the current cast of characters in my life. The prominent people who are on the forefront of my mind at that time are
written down by name without further description. Over the years,
individuals emerge and fade away, sometimes to appear again years later.
Roles of friends and lovers are filled and vacated. Ties with family
members fluctuate. Specular Portraits is a new and ongoing series of portraits depicting individuals as they enter this cast of characters.
Using a process I call ‘geometric light’, figures fade and appear, shifting identities and trading places as the lights give and remove
