Karl Dmitri Bishop in Conversation


Karl Dmitri Bishop talks about his work, becoming a photographer and his exhibition at the Art Salon.

In the September exhibition of his photography at the Art Salon he explored the abstract dream space by veiling and obscuring the formal subject matter to form a highly constructed surreal moment. The elaborate veils that shroud each subject lend them their intangible quality of otherworldliness.

Photographer and visual artist

‘Karl Dmitri Bishop’s work explores the abstract dream space by veiling and obscuring the formal subject matter to form a highly constructed surreal moment.
His shots are high fabricated and processed, with each feeling more akin to a painting; the elaborate veils that shroud each subject lend them their intangible quality of otherworldliness.’

‘Curtains’ Peter Sutton – 27th June – 3rd July




‘I was frightened by the dark as a child, now I find a perverse refuge in it’

Peter Sutton is an artist and maker whose work explores themes of memory, repetition, frustration and pointlessness – as revealed in manufactured every day objects and places. ‘I employ the visible attrition of time upon objects, traces of lives lived outside – but now within, the work’

With 25 years experience working in the creative industries professionally as a graphic designer and illustrator, ‘Curtains’ is his second solo show at the Cambridge Art Salon, using the space to explore his practice as an emerging artist.

Sound to the show will be performed by electronic musician Andy Coleman at the private view on Friday 28th June.

Diana Probst, Highlights of Cambridge


We are proud to tell you about Diana Probst’s show opening at the Art Salon on Friday, 17th May (running until 23rd). Highlights of Cambridge’ represents the work that Diana does in and around the city, and art that she has had the opportunity to create because of her association with Cambridge, as well as some of the works she has created as a resident this year, related to the city only by her vivacity and her love of the place she has made her home. Representational oils and watercolour are next to minimalist ink works, showing all the opportunities Cambridge has let into the artist’s life. Please let us know if you can make it! We hope to see you there.

Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 10am – 5.30pm


‘Diana is a young Fine Artist, a rare breed who studies and paints in the classical style. Her realistic depictions in watercolour are her most whimsical pieces, showing bright sweets and fresh fruit in simply designed staging. We are lucky to have found a brilliant artist at the start of her career; Diana works in oils and charcoal as well as watercolour, and her portraits are in demand, but she loves to explore different paint media, and her watercolour work has appeared in the Eat Cambridge brochure, as well as being hung by many satisfied clients in Cambridge.’ Design Essentials

Moving On by Gideon Pain – Thursday 23 May 2013


‘Moving On’ is an exhibition of fresh, contemporary paintings and drawings born outof the daily commute from Cambridge to London.
What started out as time-passing doodles in the corner of a diary page has turned into a six year obsession with exploring and expressing the rich theatre of rail travel. As land and weather slip by, all is on display yet much is private. It’s is this strange contradiction and the subtle, beautiful peculiarities that germinate from the most mundane of experiences. Thrown together by the necessity of work and the process of ‘getting there’, we create a world of great physical and emotional diversity that unfolds within ever changing environments. 
‘I never want to be nosey, and drawing and painting are a rubbish technique for paparazzi. Art for me is about distilling ideas rather than simply representing facts. I have always loved painters like Velasquez, Manet, Goya, and Rembrandt who seemed able to illuminate the world in a mysterious light rather than an intense glare. Luc Tuymans, Marlene Dumas and Karin Mamma Andersson are contemporary artists who continue this process and inspire me as to the huge potential of paintings’ slowness in an otherwise instantaneous digital world…’ Gideon Pain
