The Imaginarium Of Xue Wang
These pieces are taken from our brand new collection, The Imaginarium of Xue Wang.
Xue Wang’s artistic background was originally in fashion, but she turned to art as she saw it as a more direct way to express her creative ideas. 
Her art is inspired by a combination of childhood paraphernalia, Hollywood iconography and vintage fashion, and the result is an eclectic collection of art which is simultaneously appealing and unnerving.
Elegant ladies, loose and lost, peer out through knowing and impenetrable eyes, scrutinising the viewer in mock indifference. They are too beautiful to question, too creepy to doubt. These overly wide-eyed dolly birds appear vacuous but are by turns amusing, odd and just a little threatening…

  2. The Eleventh Hour | Scarlett Raven

    “Creation goes beyond the canvas. Like a chemical reaction, creation fills its environment. It has an aftermath. I suppose that is what I am really interested in, what the explosion, meeting, gathering of materials leaves behind. What we leave behind.” - Scarlett Raven

    28-year-old Scarlett Raven is a contemporary artist who has gained international acclaim from the likes of Orlando Bloom, Take That and Duffy. In her debut exhibition for Castle Fine Art, Mayfair, Scarlett explores the multiple facets of the poppy.

    A collection of work inextricably bound to the First World War, ‘The Eleventh Hour’, directly references the date of Armistice Day in 1918: a date etched into the fabric of our history, a date filled with joy and despair in equal measure. It is here then, in this tension between sorrow and elation, dark and light in which Raven’s landscapes thrive and flourish, as the tissue delicate, blood-red blooms of the poppy once grew from the disturbed earth ravaged by war. In collaboration with The Royal British Legion, ‘The Eleventh Hour’ represents the ongoing relevance of the poppy as a symbol of the remembrance of the past, but also the future promise of hope.

The Power and the Glory by Alexander Millar
“This painting to me captures those moments during the working day when you wished you could take five minutes just to enjoy the misty light that’s around you. The title of this piece sums of for me that within all the power of any industry like the huge cooling tower in this scene, the glory lies within the worker you see here too.” – Alexander Millar.
The Power and the Glory is from the brand new capsule collection of six pieces of limited edition art by contemporary artist Alexander Millar. This collection commemorates a significant point in his career; the opening of his brand new Working Man: The Homecoming museum exhibition.
Millar will be making his contribution to ‘Homecoming Scotland 2014’ with a four month exhibition at the Scotland Street School Museum, a project to which he has dedicated the last year in preparation and which features over 30 new original pieces.
“I could not consider exhibiting anything less than my best work in Glasgow. I take great pride in my Scottish heritage, and view my Homecoming collection as a rite of passage in my career.” - Alexander Millar.

Warm & Glowing by Jeff Rowland

This is just one of a selection of new August Releases from contemporary artists Neil Dawson, Jeff Rowland and Paul Corfield.

Dan Lane, aka MECHANICA.
 “My life has been driven by a need to know how things work, and how things come together and go apart again.
Add to that a love of all things unusual and off-centre and I have a mix of interests that have inspired my imagination to create these pieces.”
Dan Lane revealed his unusual use of gears, cogs, wires and bracketry to the public earlier this year to great acclaim, and has already appeared on the BBC and in a variety of art magazines.
 Each of his pieces is the result of hours of meticulous searching, collecting and arranging various parts. The results is something dark but beautiful; a take on natural forms by mechanical intervention – an industrial version of life.
 A selection of his works are available to view at Castle Fine Art, Mayfair now, as part of their Summer Exhibition which will run until Sunday 21st September. Something For The Weekend.
