Josie Jenkins and Peter Appleton work alongside each other at Arena Studios in Liverpool.  While their approaches are very different there is a certain synergy in their work.  Both artists are drawn to the less glamorous parts of the landscape: waste land, industrial units, lonely, maybe even sad places.  In addition, while they use different colour ranges, both palettes are muted, in sympathy with the subject matter. Imagery is subtle and at times rendered a little obscure on the canvas, as both artist walk a knife edge between representation and abstraction.  The focus is not to just to impart an image but also a feeling for a place; not only what is seen on the surface but what lies underneath the things we see.
