It has been great to see the work of so many talented artists from around the world and to help those artists make connections. We have always run the site on a voluntary basis, but our wider commitments mean that we are unable to continue.
Thank you very much to everyone who has visited or contributed to Artflung.
Artflung is a not-for-profit art gallery that provides a curated online space where works by new, emerging and established artists can be exhibited to as wide an audience as possible.
The gallery was created in 2008 by two friends, Tim Pilkington and Gavin McIntosh, and is run on a voluntary basis. It makes no profit, contains no advertising and does not charge artists any fees or commission. We do it because we are passionate about art and the opportunities presented by new technology.
My passion for art and in particular painting and drawing goes back to my childhood. I have studied fine art and philosophical aesthetics and in 2011 I started to paint again after a break of around 20 years. What excites me is the way in which marks: line, colour and texture can hold our attention, excite emotional or cognitive responses and present aspects of the world in new or surprising ways. I like much conceptual art but it is the visually engaging aspects of works that interest me more than anything, particularly where these are ambiguous and resist immediate, transparent visual interpretations.
My main jobs at Artflung are to manage submissions and reviews, find new artists, promote Artflung and work with Tim on the non-techy aspects of the site.
I am originally from England but I now live in Vancouver, Canada. Although I have had no training, I am a keen photographer, with a strong interest in exploring and capturing the formal elements and relations that exist in the natural and built environment. I am interested in all forms of art, particularly modern art, graffiti and photography.
My main jobs at Artflung are to build the website, publish new exhibitions and keep everything running smoothly.
