• New Points of Departure

    Dr Camilla Cassidy, March 2021

    To consistently create good painting, to arrive at new points of departure, a painter must keep re-writing the formal constraints they prescribe themselves. In her most recent exhibition at The Richard Randall Art Studio, Anita Hochman has achieved this. Through using a language of reduction (not formerly evident, or at least of a different nature […]

  • Flora

    Beth Jackson, March 2021

    Covid has prompted many of us, including artists, to focus attentions close to home – to the places we inhabit.
