introducing // ernesto lozada-uzuriaga

Ernesto studied art with a personal tutor at an early age in his native Peru. He won several awards in various school competitions. However in the early 80’s he put aside his plans to study fine art and embarked on studies in theology and anthropology. In 1987 due to the rising political unrest Ernesto left his country. He spent some time in Sao Paulo, Brazil and Barcelona, Spain before adopting England as his home. In the early 90’s he began painting again. Since then he has built a substantial body of work, finding a distinctive style which reveals both the richness of his native culture and the influence of western tradition.

His paintings have been exhibited in Europe and the UK, and are held in private collections in the UK, Germany and the United States, and in public collections including at the World Bank Washington DC, USA; Northern Light Gallery, Huddersfield, UK; Heathrow Airport, London, UK; The Ark-T Centre, Oxford; St Luke’s Church Oxford and All Saints, Harston, Cambridge. He has also produced backdrops and banners for Greenbelt Festival, Soul Survivor Festival and other major Christian events. He has been involved in producing visuals for emerging Christian communities such as JOY, Oxford and REVIVE, Leeds, amongst others.
Ernesto is married to Marie and they live in Milton Keynes.

introducing // shaeron caton-rose

"My practice covers traditional printmaking and painting practice and a more installation and site-specific approach, incorporating textiles, ceramics, found objects, relief, bookmaking and video.

All my work is concerned with the myths and Meta narratives that inform our society; whether these are ancient beliefs such as faith systems or fairytales; or modern day understandings about how things ‘are’ or ‘should be’. I am most interested in seeing how reality and actual experience measure up to these, or how each interweaves the other."
