ELEANOR MCGOUGH
McGough's paintings explore our fleeting place in the larger patterns of weather, migrations, motion, and time. Imagined hybrid life forms inhabit terrestrial, aquatic, or atmospheric spaces, revealing a fragile and tenuous relationship within these systems. She is drawn to the research of high altitude entomology that details the astonishing fact that billions of insects are carried in air drafts through the layers of our atmosphere. This idea serves as a visual metaphor to the broader context that all life is transitory and swept up in vast currents of energy.

HORTENSE LA TOUR
La Tour is a 'bijoux d'auteur', an author of jewellery. Being a troubadour of gold and jewelry means every piece she creates has it's own story, and within each creation an emotion is captured inside as a gift of eternity.

Hortense has worked in the prestigious houses of Pomellato, Givenchy and Yves Saint Laurent for 16 years, during which she studied to become a Designer at the Politecnico of Milan in Italy. There she learned the commitment of a style, the mastery of forms, the handling of materials, the arrangement of colors, mixing genres, the precision of the detail, and the choice of finishes.

Hortense La Tour now creates her own line, inspired by Italy, a way of life which inhabited her spirit for 22 years, and the light of the Mediterranean which sparkles at sunrise.
