Susan Jane Walp and Ffiona Lewis

One of my favorite things to do is find similarities and influences among artists that weren't pointed out to me before. I guess I like it because it helps me place myself and its just a fun challenge or something. I have liked Susan Jane Walp's work for a while and always thought it had something English about it (thinking Uglow). When I came across Ffiona Lewis's work on a London gallery website I immediately thought of Walp.

Both artists seem interested in capturing a quiet moment that objects can create when you look at them carefully enough. The sense of dispersed light is similar too, I really enjoy these artists' work!
