Artist Statement: Anxiety, hesitation, lust, and gluttony are never a step too far in any direction of my life. I work
from memory; memories sidestep objectivity. Their visual manifestations are intensely personal and revealing. My
work makes the fleeting essence of memory, tangible; the paintings put flesh to the bones of narrative. The
unreliable and organic nature of recall makes for paintings that flirt with improvisation and result in vibrating and, in
my case, anxiety laden energy. Working with concepts of femininity and the undercurrents that point to notions of
the feminine, androgyny and feminist; my paintings unabashedly portray women delighted in their skins. Embracing
flaws, sexuality and indulgence, they urge the viewer to engage with the unsavoury sides of themselves. Social labels
of grotesque and lust associated with the body interest me, my figures explore the intricacies of the two.

Lauren Mele (USA/UK) lives and works in London. She got her BFA at the Art Institute of Boston (2008) and her MA in
Contemporary Art History & Theory at the Sotheby’s institute of art (2012)

Artwork 1 Title: Girlies
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 55×65x4
Artwork 1 Medium: Oil on Linen
Artwork 1 Commentary: This image of femininity sidesteps the pretty and puts gluttony on the table. Bodies sweaty
and physical; flaws are exaggerated, embraced and flaunted. These figures, using myself as a physical point of
reference, exude flamboyance and confidence, two attributes I strive for in my everyday but somehow suppress. The
term ‘feminine’ should be flexible and fluid, say these figures, and more strongly associated with the term
‘feminist’. Society manages to keep the two concepts fairly disassociated, when in fact both should bring the
word ‘robust’ to mind.

Artist Name: Lester Korzilius


Website: lesterkorzilius.com
IG: https://www.instagram.com/lesterkorzilius/?hl=en

Artist Statement: Lester Korzilius is both an artist and architect. He is interested in the immersive aspects of both
disciplines, and his work creates a connection with the viewer grounded in space. The work is deliberately designed
to require multiple views to comprehend it as a totality, as this introduces time and distance in the perception of the
viewer.

Korzilius concentrates on a two-fold set of relationships. First, there is the interaction between the work, the viewer,
and the environment – and these reinforce and modify each other. Secondly, are the internal properties of the
work and the dialogue that these have with each other. Materiality, colour and texture are key properties in these
experiments.

A number of the works situate themselves in the zone between art and architecture, exploring and manipulating
size, scale and movement to create an immersive environment. The work also explores scale from the perspective of
creating a defined connection with the viewer – sometimes close, and sometimes less so.

Lester Korzilius has been experimenting with colour, exploring the idea of sculpture as an armature for colour.
Colour is used as a physical element in space, and it is perceived, along with the other properties of the work, on an
emotive level of perception.

Artwork 1 Title: Ascension
Artwork 1 Dimensions: Varies
Artwork 1 Medium: Acrylic paint, polyurethane, wire mesh, steel, monofilament line
Artwork 1 Commentary: The images shown are of the installation at the Chichester Festival Theatre from 20 April –
30 December 2018.

Ascension is positioned high up in the atrium of the Minerva Theatre, with the stairway and balconies of the theatre
offering multiple perspectives on a complex series of forms. Ascension explores the phenomenological aspects of
movement and the viewer’s place in the context of a series of cascading spirals, taking cues from the Vatican
Museum and the Guggenheim in New York. The work also investigates the concept of sculpture as an armature for
colour. Seen from various distances, the intricate complexities of the textured surfaces suggest shifting colour fields,
in which the status of colour values is inextricably connected with (and made complex by) other factors, including
surface area, compositional form, saturation and perspective.

References include color field painters such as Mark Rothko, Helen Frankenthaler, Jackson Pollock, and later colour
artists such as Sean Scully and Howard Hodgkin.

Artist Name: Maria Positano


Website: www.mariapositano.org
IG: https://www.instagram.com/maria.positano/

Artist Statement: Maria Positano


I am driven by the human need to generate spiritual meaning around the unknown, through the creation of physical
artefacts and manipulation of organic matter. I deploy primary elements associated with ceremonies, time and
decay: these include the elements used [fire, burned wood, metal and wax] and the processes applied [metal
working, wood burning, casting].

My recent work is about objects of worship, which seem to hold a life and a presence of their own. I have been
reflecting on symbols, unidentified relics, objects of veneration and power, myths, monoliths, and so on.

I seek the layering of symbolic meaning projected onto the object of worship, which turns inanimate matter into the
icon. The object, as a result of an alchemical process, or shamanic investiture, becomes a representation of the
human striving to unconceal the unknown thing.

Exploring the individual´s psychological engagement and immersive experience with the object, each artwork
creates a charged space, representative of the spiritual and the material.

By juxtaposing transient materials and physical presence, abstracted and symbolic, crafted object and sharp finish, I
want to create the experience of the self-reflection on the notion of being human.

Our cultural contemporary understanding of all manner anthropological, historical and visual codes becomes in my
work a channel for unified communication between worshippers and the worshipped. Within this process emerges
the figure of the archetypal Demiurge [artist, shaman, alchemist, smith] who becomes the intermediary for powerful
and insightful mediation of the spiritual territory into the physical realm.

Artwork 1 Title: Bronze Crucible: Waiting for your Awakening
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 20 x 20 x 33 cm
Artwork 1 Medium: Highly polished Bronze Cast and casting sand
Artwork 1 Commentary: This artwork consists of a highly polished bronze cast, resting on a bed of red casting sand.
The work is referencing the crucible and the process of casting metal, which deploys the primordial element of fire.
The element of the crucible functions as a symbolical reference to the vessel, the archetypal crater. This object is
simultaneously extruding and intruding, recreating the main archetypal motions of creation and hinting to a process
of self-regeneration.

Artist Name: Hatty Butler


Website: www.hattybutler.com
IG: hattybutlerartist

Artist Statement: My work is about people. Exploring their vulnerability, capturing an honest and exposed
resemblance, creating a vivid and forceful image. My portraits are not about the face alone, they portray and
question the emotions and experiences behind it.

I make decisions about my work based upon how I am feeling. I know a piece has been successful when it has
challenged and confronted me, it comes together as a whole and is energetic and commanding. I choose to use oil
paint, it is malleable, thick and creates an incredible texture. Using a pallet knife alongside this means that I can drag
the paint and also become less precious about my work, as it forces me to make mistakes.

Emotions, experiences and struggles. My aim in to convey these feelings via contemporary art, creating dynamic,
vivid images. My love for texture, method and material helps me capture these emotions. I am passionate about
using my art to celebrate unique and interesting people. Highlighting and embracing those who may normally be
overlooked or criticised for being different. We live in a society where the abnormal is laughed at and my aim is to
alter these outdated views. Art can be the most innovative and compelling form of providing change within our
society. I challenge the viewer, encouraging them to look deeper into the painting than just the portrait itself, to
raise internal issues and try to comprehend them.

Artwork 1 Title: 'Same same but different'
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 87x81x5
Artwork 1 Medium: Oil and spray paint on canvas.
Artwork 1 Commentary: With this piece I wanted to create a strong sense of movement. I am passionate about
creating portraits that feel 3-dimensional and that have a sense of 'capturing a moment in time'. I consider life
drawing to be a key element in my practice and I love to incorporate this sketchy, loose feel within my paintings.

I don´t want to bore my audience. I want to show them something which they would have never seen this way.

Artwork 1 Medium: Photography, Print on Alu Dibond
Artwork 1 Commentary: Sometimes, or often I produce art because I want to see my dreams or thoughts hung up on
the wall. Well, at first on a screen and if I like it, I print and frame it.
This image as well just appeared in my head a few minutes before I awake and I didn´t get it out of my head for the
next months.
In this situation I usually have my eyes and ears open all the time, looking for the right location, probs and the right
models.
I always happens that I meet someone who exactly fits in the image in my head and that I also find the right location.
Then I just ask and put the peaces (location, model, styling) together.

Artist Name: Christopher Bennett


Website: www.christopherbennettphotography@gmail.com
IG: christopherbennettphotography

Artist Statement: I’m a contemporary photographer who has an interest in new technologies of artificial
intelligence and 3D printing, pushing the boundaries of the traditional 2D photographic image into a three-
dimensional form. My practice derives its inspiration from late archaic Greek sculpture but is applied to 21st century
technology. careful consideration of the installations has to be taken as the sculptures require the viewer to engage
from multiple angles due to its three-dimensional form.

Notes:

1
Artwork 1 Title: late Archaic
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 35,12,9
Artwork 1 Medium: 3D printed sculpture
Artwork 1 Commentary: The forearm three-dimensional print would not be possible without the 438 two-
dimensional images used to create the mesh. The work takes its heritage from the history of sculpture, specifically
the Late Archaic period in Greece. During this period, sculpture of the body changed from an idealisation of form to a
more anatomically correct rendering of the human figure. What the Greek sculptures were trying to achieve I am
now trying to create with 21st century technologies of artificial intelligence and 3D printing. While the work takes
inspiration from the past it is also forward looking to the posthuman age. Today we have the most advanced
technology that we have ever known but as advanced as our civilisation has become this work points out that
technology is not perfect, the errors in the scanning process highlight this.

Notes:

Artwork 1 Title: Art and Religion
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 165cm X 150cm
Artwork 1 Medium: Watercolor, paper
Artwork 1 Commentary: The artist began this work to answer questions about the religions that the artist's 9-year-
old son asks. This work, which has been completed for 11 months in the fall in France, also presents a reflection on
the history of art and laïcité (is a French concept of secularism) that atheists like the artist and her son think
through.

How art and religion interact with each other, how art has been created as a result of human cultural activities, and
how art is taking shape in religious culture. This relationship has changed since modernism emerged. Art no longer
tries to serve religion or make religious content a subject. Modern art began to be evaluated by pure aesthetic
standards independent of religion. Nevertheless, many religious scholars, including Eliade, argue that religion still
plays an important role in contemporary art. Atheists will always feel surrounded by religious things.

Sooyoung LEE photographs people, monuments, buildings, trees, animals, illustrations, and
everything that pleases her. Then she chooses elements in these photos and draws them on paper, in pencil. She
works a lot on composition between her different subjects. Nothing is defined in advance. A little like children play
with Lego blocks, it composes its elements impulsively without having the final result in mind. She likes this
unreality, illogical and instantaneous. She does not feel any impossibility in her composition.
She works a lot in large format, which allows her to describe her ideas with great precision and detail. Her paintings
require visitors a lot of attention and time to decipher and walk around. She hopes to refresh the routine of the
viewers and allow them a little inconsistency.

Artist Statement: My work is project based. I source clay from construction sites and historical locations in order to
make ceramic forms that reference the history of the area in which the clay was excavated. I explore and utilise the

Artwork 1 Title: Pipeline
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 12 x 38 x 150 cm
Artwork 1 Medium: Ceramic - fired and melted
Artwork 1 Commentary: Pipeline is the first part of a project which pays tribute to ceramicist Henry Doulton and
engineer Joseph Bazalgette who built London's Victorian sewer system - a network that saved countless lives and
connected all its citizens.

Pipeline is made of pure clay spoil excavated from 25m below the Thames in the construction of the capital's new
supersewer. The series of extrusions, (a process pioneered by Doulton for pipe production), are fired at a variety of
temperatures. It serves as a materials test piece, a reference to Doulton’s experimentation and a reminder that
the temperature is the only thing that changed in the 54 million years the clay was underground.

Website: www.bryonyreed.com
IG: bryonyreedart

Artist Statement: My aim is to make the invisibility of different mental states, visible. In todays society, we are
always striving to be the best, by looking better, feeling better and appearing to be better. Everyone knows what you
see on the outside, is not always what is going on in the inside. Therefore by painting pictures which people can
relate a feeling to, is my goal. It's about time we started to show what is really going on underneath the surface, and
we can see this only if we cared to look a little deeper.

I am a full time professional Artist based in Norfolk, after deciding that being an Artist can be just as important as
other careers. I dropped out of my degree where I was studying Psychiatric Nursing, as I knew that being an Artist
was what I was meant to be.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 50.8 x 76.2 x 2

Artwork 1 Commentary: Psychedelic Solitude is about the feeling of being alone but with the company of ones
thoughts. One does not have to be lonely, when alone, as we have our minds to accompany us. The mind can
sometimes be a best friend or a worst enemy.

Artwork 1 Title: Before it Fades
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 15 pieces 15x 21 cm each
Artwork 1 Medium: papermaking, embossing, etching, screenprinting, found objects
Artwork 1 Commentary: Before it Fades is a series of handmade papers with inclusions and embossing of objects.
These objects were incorporated in the paper pulp during the papermaking process or imprinted on the papers with
the technique of blind embossing. The work examines relationships between reality and imagination as these are
filtered through the mind and how time and memory contribute to the process of seeing, illustrating the subjective
nature of perception.
I saw the paper as a vehicle for recording and collecting memories. The physical characteristics of the embedded
objects and their trace-like qualities as well as the fragile quality of the handmade paper are a metaphor for
memories partially erased or distorted through time. They are a symbolic representation of memories, traces or
fragments of the past and evoke a sense of inherent history, place and time. They tell stories and describe
trajectories as they reveal a past life or their usage in a past life. The objects attempt to create an impression of
familiarity to the viewer and trigger a personal memory or association, a reconstruction of a personal narrative.

Artist Statement: A vibrant and colorful Artist Lina Doenmez with a playful sense of humor known as pseudonym
Purple Snow . She earned her Degree of Fine Arts in Painting from the Vilnius Academy of Fine Arts. After receiving
her B.F.A degree, continued her art education by studying art pedagogy at the Faculty of Education, Vilnius Academy
of Fine Arts. She has also participated in and taught several art workshops in Germany. Currently lives and works in
Cologne, where she continues to be inspired by the natural beauty surrounding her. Purple Snow`s recent work
explores relationships between natural landscape and pattern. Whether she looks into the starry night sky or at a
tangle of brush she interest in the way pattern exists in the world. Repetitive pattern establishes an order and
structure that can be broken, disrupted and disconnected. It is within this disconnect that she finds beauty, secrets
and mystery. The size of the paintings almost asks the audience to lean in closer to see it all, so they can enter the
image and imagine the rest of that story themselves. Purple Snow wants that her art work splashes color and magic
across walls everywhere. Her paintings are to remind us that life can be happy, magical and carefree.

University of the Arts. currently focused on the representation of her own personal perspective of the world around
her through the medium of surrealist self portraiture. Working with paint and occasionally printmaking, she seeks to

Artwork 1 Title: Self Portrait with Wellies on
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 90x62x01
Artwork 1 Medium: Oil on Board
Artwork 1 Commentary: Self Portrait with Wellies on is an exploration of my ideas on how I am perceived by those
around me, and the exploitation of the nude female form in art. The self portrait functions as a reclamation of self
image, carefully controlling the way in which I am presented to those who might view it. Drawing on thematic
inspiration from surrealist self portraiture and the stylistic influences of 'Pin Up' and 'Cheesecake' art, I have aimed
to create an image that, despite clear indications of its intention to appear provocative, cannot function in this way
as it cannot truly be taken seriously.

Artist Statement: I am a contemporary British artist, originally from Mexico, who works with any media. My
paintings,
photographs and installations, explore the sense of our time and the transcendence of the human
being. My artistic career encompasses over thirty-five years of creativity. I live and work in London
and have exhibited in both Europe and America. With little to non self-promotion, minimum to
making money, with years long silence, with many works done that never shown to anybody,
sincerely involved with my artwork and processes. I create art for the joy of doing it and not as a
means to an end.
I would like to think that I bring with my work and ideas an inherited value of culture coming from
my mixed background and experiences of living in London from an outsider point of view with a
universal identity and very much focused in our contemporary times.
Indirectly my work makes a positive contribution to society by pointing out physical and mental

Artist Statement: Maxwell Rushton

Born 1989

Works in London

Intertwining performance, painting, drawing and sculpture, Maxwell’s portfolio explores cultural phenomena and
his own human condition.

In his work Brand New Me, Maxwell explores society’s growing relationship with marketing by painting 20 pints
of his own blood into an epic-scale replica of his logo, turning twice the volume of blood he has in his body into a
piece of advertising. From this to his project Drawn Out, in which he filled four 10 meter rolls of paper with
approximately 10 million hand-drawn lines over the duration of a year whilst he lived in isolation, to viral footage of
Maxwell’s sculpture Left Out, which has so far been viewed over 40 million times, his “thought-provoking
works― (Huffington Post) are “causing a stir throughout the international art scene― (Lodown Magazine).

Artwork 1 Title: Left Out
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 60cm x 60cm x 60cm
Artwork 1 Medium: Jesmonite cast encased in a bin liner
Artwork 1 Commentary: The theme of homelessness has found its way into Maxwell’s practice on many
occasions. This particular work, titled Left Out, developed from an almost insignificant experience when Maxwell
mistook a bin bag as a homeless person after tripped over it whilst walking out a doorway.

Left Out appears as a person sitting down, cross-legged, in a large, black bin-bag. In 2016 as an experiment of
bystander intervention, Maxwell placed the original sculpture of Left Out on various streets in London and filmed the
public’s reactions as they passed, some stopping to investigate what they thought was a person in a bin-bag,
whilst others would simply walk on.

Five separate edits of the original footage went viral, reaching over 40million people.

“It’s a message about people being disposable. It’s quite a shocking an image. It’s the idea we see
homeless people as garbage, it’s challenging.―

– A member of the public, Westminster Bridge.

Artist Name: Carali Mccall


Website: www.caralimccall.com
IG: https://www.instagram.com/caralimccall/

Artist Statement: As an artist, my research is primarily engaged in representing and uncovering ways to understand
the body. While working across media such as drawing and performance, I consider the body as a tool and use the
line as a way to measure time and energy.

Since 2004 I have been making a series of works titled, Circle Drawings. Testing my endurance and physical limits I
use a stick of graphite on paper to draw my full arm's length in a continuous circular motion until the point of
complete exhaustion. Challenged by the physically demanding process and battle with materials (for 2-3hrs), the
durational element often causes the paper to rip, and my ability to extend my arm diminishes to the extent I can no
longer hold the graphite. Shaped by the anthropometric limits of the body, each drawing is titled by its duration.

Part of a trajectory of art practices that consider the body as site and material of the work, as well as how the artists'
performative action is an integral part of the process, my work references an important part of art history where
repetition, time, meditation and movement enrich what a drawing practice can be.

Artwork 1 Commentary: In this new addition to the series, materials such as 23ct Gold Leaf and Gouache are used to
treat the surface of the paper. The combination of these new materials bring a new layer of reference to important
art historical processes and on such a grand scale, makes the work particularly striking.

I began my ‘Circle Drawing' artworks in 2004 where I focus on the durational element and physical process of
drawing. I test endurance and empower the role of the artist. Using graphite on paper I am committed to drawing in
a continuous circular motion to the point of complete exhaustion.

Artist Statement: I currently live in Nottingham but still have strong ties to the Solihull area where I was born in
1971.

In June 2014, inspired by a painting in Whitewall Galleries, I decided to try my hand at a new hobby, not imagining
for one moment where it might actually lead. I had previously dabbled in craftwork and floristry but, having never
been able to draw, the actual talent for painting came as somewhat of a surprise, and I started by pulling off a few
decent landscapes.

When given the opportunity to enter an exhibition in October 2014, I switched genre from landscapes to animals
and knew immediately I had found my forte. I have since twice been voted “The Public’s Favourite― at
Centre of England Arts and an Award of Merit in an international competition. To date, my paintings have been
distributed across the UK, Australia and New Zealand.

I love animals and nature which is where most of my inspiration comes from. My art is vibrant and spontaneous and,
coupled with my quirky sense of humour, my paintings evoke a feeling of childhood innocence, so creating an escape
for adults and children alike. I'm often told my personality shines through in my creations. All I know is that if they
make me smile, they'll make others smile… and a smile is definitely worth the canvas it’s painted on. After all,
life shouldn’t be taken too seriously!

21:27 is a bright and technicolor work created with expanding foam, acrylic and spray paint on canvas. Playful and
childlike colours form an abstract and fictitious landscape, while the expanding foam thrusts forwards from the
surface, anchoring it firmly in the physical space and asking the viewer to question the borderline between the ideal
and reality.

Artist Statement: I am interested in the connection between real object and mental representation through
sculpture and photography. The porosity between those two concepts drives me to consider the real world as an
interface between two abstractions that would only let flow its perceptible part. The matter, as a skin that would

Artist Statement: The theme of my work in progress is the impact of borders and ultimate control in places which are
designed to create a parallel world. These places are staffages, artificial settings, and constructions providing a
contradiction to our everyday life. Borders and control of areas which are excesses examples for staging an imitation
of the reality as well as the imitation of natural structures, especially in still lifes are important
aspects of my recent artwork. The question arises: how strong is the construction of the border to the outside and
how obsessive is the control in some of the happiest places on earth? The issue is to create a photographic, mixed
media installation which brings a new perspective
about universal themes such as control, staging, surveillance, and value.

Artwork 1 Commentary: Early this 2017 I’ve been working with Army Families that live on site. Attending youth
club for a number of weeks I was a part of the core of the camp, the community centre. During this time the army
moved them to a new building, number 57. This Building is half the size of the previous community centre, forcing
them to get rid of most of the possessions, due to limited storage. Power is something that most of the youths
I’ve worked with feel they don’t have. Often a military child will move as frequently as six months to two
years. Their whole life is governed by the army and their association with home is focused on their family members
and immediate community. This move took away one very important consistency in their life. Building 57 was a
series attempting to give power to the members of youth club I worked with. Exploring the greater picture of living
within military life through portraiture and architectural images I want to give power to the children of army
communities.

Artist Name: Fergus Cooper

Artist Statement: A lot of my time nowadays seems to be taken up with the very important task of stalking people on
Instagram. As a result, my practice examines social media, making work around the idea of privacy as a commodity,
specifically how images of the self are becoming currency.

This prompted me to think about society's obsession with celebrity, both with 'celebrities', and with the notion of
fame. What is our fascination with other people's private lives, why do we seem hung up on revealing details of our
own private lives, and what is the pay off for that level of access to each other? With celebrities, where is the line
between their private lives and what they are 'selling'.

Tying into this, I recently finished at the Florence Trust residency (in a disused church), which made me consider the
correlation between religious iconography and its reflection into the 21st century - is social media turning the 'face'
and the idea of celebrity into modern day iconography?

A lot of my work revolves around images stolen from Instagram, both of recognisable celebrities, and from 'ordinary'
profiles. I work primarily with paint to create images drawn directly from computer screens, and then cut or tear
them out to collage them together.

I graduated from an MA in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins in 2017, and in 2018 I completed a year long residency at
The Florence Trust, London. I was recently longlisted for the Elephant x Griffin Art Prize 2018.

Artwork 1 Title: Mother Rihanna
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 60 x 50 x 5
Artwork 1 Medium: collage of acrylic on Bristol board, with marker and gold leaf
Artwork 1 Commentary: 'Mother Rihanna' was made during my time at the Florence Trust - a residency in a disused
church in Highbury. During my time on the residency I was influenced by the religious iconography present in the
building, and began to think about how those tropes might tie into my work.

The 'faces' of Jesus and Mary are instantly recognisable, and I wanted to link that with the modern notion of
celebrity. For this piece I chose to depict Rihanna (one of the most followed people on Twitter) as Mary, but her
robes are formed of fragments of imagery from commercial brands, highlighting the close association of celebrity
and its commercial potential. She is surrounded by imagery inspired by traditional iconography, but in my piece the
doves are replaced by a stylised Twitter logo as a nod to social media.

I make my works as layered collage, which are first painted in acrylic. I wanted to echo the idea of a stained glass
window by using strong, black outlines around the individual elements. I also incorporated gold leaf and an ornate
frame to echo the traditional style of a religious icon.

Artist Statement: Even the mosts common things around us have recognisable beauty in them and I see it as my role
as an artist to capture and communicate their voice, whether that be colour, form, fragility, fun, size, texture etc.
There’s usually an element of fear in not being able to achieve this, which keeps me grounded and on the edge of
my comfort zone. I switched from painting with acrylics to oils this year and adore the way the paint moves and
blends on the canvas - it’s a great adventure!

I really want people to experience the thrill of owning original art because it breathes life into empty spaces - adds
soul, beauty, texture, interest, emotion. It stamps your walls, your home, with your personality. Each piece is your
discovery, you are the curator of your own exhibition. I love this idea and want to create covetable pieces that

Artwork 1 Title: Shadow (Chair)
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 50x50cm
Artwork 1 Medium: Archival Inkjet Print
Artwork 1 Commentary: In my work, I dedicate myself to the exploration of the objet trouvé. I find meaning within
the discarded and ignored. Removed from their homes, stripped of their lives, and left on the street to be taken
away and forgotten, I find these objects. I see their traces.

Traces of emotion, stories of past owners, histories – these are details that breathe life into these objects. Traces
that are there one second, and gone the next. I capture this ephemerality. I give them significance once again.

The shadow is a trace of an object. A simple outline, a silhouette. Usually the shadow is an index, a trace of what is.
In this case, the index points to what is lost. The shadow completes the object. It turns a half into a whole, the index
is more than just itself. Or is it just a reminder of what was and can no longer be?

I reminisce of the objects that are no longer. The objects are long gone and cannot be retrieved. The only thing I
have left are traces. Negatives and paper prints hold the last of my objects. These are the only things left that revive
the life that was.

Artist Statement: My practice questions the impulse to render information, bodies and the ‘quantified self’
transparent. I examine the implications of the blurred lines between artificial and organic, virtual and physical, inert
and animate and highlight our society’s misguided aim at human perfection and cyborg immortality.

I am interested in this current world of transparency and hyper-stimulation where we are confronted with too
much information to possibly digest. A growing obsession to dissect our bodies might identify diseases before they
spread, but what happens when every aspect of our lives is documented and catalogued for ulterior profit? If data
rendered transparent and visible can be better consumed and analyzed, then perhaps a transparent body is one that
can give researchers a leg up on finally hacking the human brain to optimize it further. Access becomes the new
currency of power.

My work gives access via an oscillation between body and machine, connecting different nodes of research and
medium from photography to sculpture, video and prose in order to create a larger network that the viewer is
invited to decode. I explore the ways in which technological advancements allow unprecedented access to the inner
workings of the flesh, and the ensuing trans-humanist hopes of the convergence between technology and the body.
As sci-fi dreams and nightmares become a reality, I question whether those who are granted access will determine
the social, economic and genetic casts of the future.

Artwork 1 Commentary: The series The Algorithm Will See You Now (2017) is a way to imagine and forewarn a future
with wide implications. With technological advancements, in particular AI and deep learning algorithms, expert
medical machines could soon examine us—exposing the fragility of the human body as one with limitations, prone
to diseases, in need of medical help and ultimately with a relatively short expiration date. A human can only work so
many hours and is constantly aging, yet a machine can be configured to work non-stop. On another level our choices
in how to make these machines in our image, including the gendering of robot AI into acquiescent female assistants
who are there to please, needs to be examined and questioned.

Artist Statement: In this artwork I have explored the idea of machine in connexion to the human body by looking for
these qualities in them, as if seeking for their own voice as a way to express a physical sense or gesture, there seems
to emerge a potential of language and communication. The idea of machine appears to be a means of support for
chaos, as an element of negation of the architectural space, as a frame for revelation, etc. To me, it is the stage
where action plays with elements and materials, producing an outcome that makes sense but does not unveil its
whole complexity, which opens up new possibilities of shaping to each of us.

Both in my art installations and paintings a performative aspect is deeply embedded in the creative process,
exploring the physicality of both materials and objects. The shift between the pictorial and the sculptural is intended,
it seems to uncover the tensions created between the physical and the order of sign, a place where memories and
cognition have the potential to shape and reshape the world.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 75 x 27 x 17
Artwork 1 Medium: cast bronze and marble
Artwork 1 Commentary: I make my work to understand things, get to the meat and bones, in this case literally. Six
years ago I suffered from Caudal Equina Syndrome. This rare spinal disorder can leave sufferers unable to walk and
with many other challenges. With thanks to excellent surgery and physiotherapy I recovered well but it would have
seemed impossible to create this sculpture mentally or physically at that time.
Creating this work has been a massive physical challenge and a steep learning curve. I worked from anatomical
models, medical drawings, MRI scans, photos and was lucky enough to handle some real human bones.
The subject is not a perfect anatomical representation of the spine of a perfect human specimen but my artistic
impression of a real hardworking spine, the source of pain but also the literal strength of the body, capable of
amazing things.
The subject may suffer pain but is looking outwards, the source of the pain is also the backbone, the strength to stay
upright and looking forward despite the imperfections

Artist Statement: Sublimity is always accompanied by the feeling of pain. There has always been something behind
these positive feelings. My love for them has also distressed me--there has always been a choking poignancy that
suffocates me.

Felix Mendelssohn describes this phenomenon as “schmerzhaft angenehme Empfindung―, the simultaneous
feeling of joy and anguish. Listen to the Symphony no. 8 by Gustav Mahler. The storming choir consisting of one
thousand people almost bores the sky and tears my heart apart. Read André Gide, his extremely restrained yet
rapturing writings. They resemble the sound of prayers. Go to St Peter’s Cathedral to see the Pieta, with the face
of Maria that is extremely calm and peaceful yet bearing the biggest grief of all. In Mozart’s opera “Don
Giovanni―, the commendatore scene from Act II, when the Ghost comes down tearing walls and storms in anger:
“Don- Gio-van – ni! A ce-nar te-co!―, it is a rather fearful moment, yet did you notice the mournfully soft and
subtle tune that follows underneath, f – e – f – g ? In Beethoven’s famous Symphony no. 9, the part when
“Ode to Joy― comes in, breaking the silence, have you seen the conductor, full of sweat, singing with the choir,
conducting as if he will break his arms very soon, with a face full of joy, rapture, and at the same time terribly
distorted with pain...
I seek to bring forth this combined feeling of joy and suffering, and to reveal the pain behind the sublime.

Artwork 1 Commentary: As an artist as well as a musician, I have been seeking for the art as language and the
method of communication. This work is my visual interpretation of W.A. Mozart's Don Giovanni. In particular, I have
tried to bring this sound language into artworks as I found the similarity of music and ordinary language very
fascinating. The function of the language system is diverged greatly into vocal language and written language. This
happens equally in music. Music is possible to be made into sound: the alphabets (notes) gather to make sentences
and stories (music). It is also possible to write text (musical scores) as letter (notes).

Artist Statement: My photographic practice focuses on people and the notions of home, foreignness, and common
ground.

The central themes that I investigate through my practice are strongly influenced by my background: I was born in
Russia (then the Soviet Union), and grew up in France, after moving west with my family at the age of 9, at the onset
of the 1990s. Spending my formative years on one side of the former Cold War, with my roots in the other, I was
aware from an early age of the many expressions of otherness, but also of a human quality shared across divides.
Growing up as an outsider, the quest for a common ground is a permanent fixture of life, as is the question of where
home is — and whether it actually exists.

Despite the uneasy qualities of the themes I explore in my work, I remain a cautious optimist: I believe in the
possibility for a common ground to be found and brought into the spotlight. In an era of increased global trend
towards xenophobia and isolationism, it feels only right to produce work that showcases a humanity that transcends
geographical, ethnic, and political divides. In doing so, I hope to nudge viewers towards reflecting on the prevalent
narratives of adversity and division.

By affirming this idea of a universal underlying human nature, my practice follows steadily in the humanist
photographic tradition of the 20th century, tracing its roots to The Family of Man exhibition, Diane Arbus’s
portraiture work, and, more recently, the work of artists such as Luo Yang (“Girls―) or Richard Renaldi
(“Touching Strangers―).

was to explore the frictions that arise between the two cultures, in the context of the individual's relationship with
him or herself, with his or her family, his or her workplace, and society at large.

There are few places that carry emotional traces of those frictions as much as a person's home. In this image, the
view of the outside world (close and far away), though symbolically separated from the lived-in space, is redefined
and coloured by it, as is its inhabitant's own perception and experience.

Artist Statement: While there are copious political, spiritual and social narratives that can be explored and
discovered within the work; it is the simple, emotive individual that is indirectly discovered in each painting. Each
painting is created without direct preconception but with a compound memory of personal experiences, art, text
and music.
Throughout the work questions or subconscious realisations of pure feeling towards our own being and those who
we encounter prevail. The omnipresent ambiguous identities and their relationships change with each new
encounter you have with the work. This engagement provides a live theatricality that can be resonant to your own
life journey.

As resident artist for the National Trust, I studied gestural mark making and book binding in Italy. I was awarded the
Alhambra award for artist of the year in 2007 London, and had my artwork selected by the United Nations Art for

connecting.

Currently I exploring minimilism in mark making combined with geometry. Global issues of displacement, migration
identity, earth ruptures and climate migration are a key focus within my practise.

Artwork 1 Commentary: By taking inspiration from the Alhambra in Granada Spain, I create a geometric pattern. This
pattern reflects my belonging within Europe, a continent that at times seems to be struggling to reach out to the
destitute and displaced. The marks I add to my structure help me meditate for those less fortunate than myself.
Having spent several years developing my practise, I have turned my geometric pattern into a 3D structure. My time
spent in Italy studying bookbinding and gestural mark making has had a profound impact on my artwork. By adding a
simple blanket stitch to my 3D tent like structures I am metaphorically adding comfort to those you need sanctuary,
those who need shelter. This binding stitch is similar to a japanese stab bind, linking in to the japanese ink I use
within my practise. The dense black japanese sumi ink I introduced arose through my studying Japanese wood cut
prints on Impressionist Painters in my home town at Burnely College of Arts and Technology.

Artist Statement: Everything is interesting to be photographed. You can take a lot of pictures, but you can't
photograph everything. There are very good landscape photographers, wedding photographers, underwater- or
portrait photographers. The key is in specialization. I am not one of the photographers mentioned above. I
photograph inconspicuous single pieces, items, parts of a big whole, fragments. I do not photograph them sharply,
but unsharply them and with color filters. I am alienating the seen, taking pictures of the unseen. Every
photographed object or situation has a multifaceted, differentiated view that I would like to bring to light.
Sometimes these results and pictures are coloured, grey with colour, sometimes monochromatic, times black and
white.
Intense colors, unconventional surfaces, a certain depth of sharpness to unsharpness and dissolving of connections,
that's what I want to document in my Pictures.
They are always interesting, multi-layered, look coarsely pixelated and change the view of things, on everyday, in

imaginative and uncanny world by applying layered paints on various flat objects to connect with memory-related
subjects.

My paintings document my interest in the lost and the found, what is the passing memory and what is synthesised as
a trace in the landscape. I am especially focusing on one individual’s story. Exploring our multiple temperaments
and capturing the essence of a fading moment has been part of my practice since my early work, interviewing people
around me about their personal experience in my Landscape-Memories Series (2013-2014).

I am an experimental oil painter. In Multi-layers Series (2014-2016), I painted on transparent acrylic boards to
transfer paintings into memorable objects. Some of them are displayed in the country parks and some are installed
with video installation. I believe that using layers, elements, colours and lines I can create touchable objects like
mementos, which are strongly attached to depicting time and memory.

In recent works Night Swims Series (2017-2018), I present a body of work influenced by late night swimming. The
endless darkness with its subtly differing shades of blackness provided the initial inspiration for the series. The
characters in the paintings are depicted as though they are nocturnal creatures, their postures invoking feelings of
isolation, solitude, uncertainty, and fear. Their emotions are mirrored by the reflections cast on the surface of the
dark waters, drawing a line of correlation between water as a physical element and as a symbol for the depths of the
human psyche.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 76 x 101.5 cm
Artwork 1 Medium: Oil on canvas
Artwork 1 Commentary: “The Black Series: Night Swims― (2017-18) is a project which continues my journey to
dive into the dark waters of the human psyche. The characters depicted in the paintings reflect a state of feelings
including isolation, solitude, uncertainty, and fear. The reflections dancing off of the surface of the dark water are a
symbolic description of these hidden emotions. They mirror the feelings of the characters as if they were like
nocturnal animals that are only comfortable to feed and hunt in the dark.

It was my first experience swimming at night in Lantau Island, Hong Kong in summer 2016 which inspired this
project. It is here where I swam far away from the artificial streetlights of the Island, where one could observe the
horizon of darkness between the sky and sea. Here was an endless darkness with different layers of black colours.
This variety of black colours is also a material study for my colour palettes used in this project.

Artist Statement: We are all, in some way or the other, affected or influenced by violence in our lives. We may even
proliferate it, either knowingly or unknowingly. I am intrigued by this human behaviour towards nature and fellow
humans and try to critique it in various ways through my work.

I am very influenced by the surrounding - what individuals see around them, what they acknowledge and what they
are indifferent towards. My work mostly draws that is around me to create a narrative which shows the vehemence,
that I have witnessed and felt, that is somehow universal. My current body of work is somehow influenced by Julia
Kristeva's essay on Abjection. The imageries I create tend to objectify human bodies that are subjecting to the
violence. My work intertwines repetition and grotesque as I think it would have a greater impact on confronting and
conveying my perspective to the viewer.

In my work, drawing and the narration of emotions is central that I explore through the possibilities of the different
medium. The colours and materials I use tend to undermine the inherent violence and enhance the fragility of the
subject. The sensitivity and the intensity of the subject, in my work, somehow reflects in the selection of the
materials.

Artwork 1 Title: Untitled
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 34.56 x 10 x 0.5 CM x 4 panels
Artwork 1 Medium: Glazed Ceramics Paper Clay, Polyester thread
Artwork 1 Commentary: Ceramics as a medium fascinates me for the contrast of its strength and fragility. I always try
to bring the quality of my drawing in various mediums. The ceramic piece is influenced by Julia Kristeva's essay on
Abjection. Its, particularly inspired by an instance of the harmless thin milk sheet when seen or touched by lips
creates a weird sensation, a spasm that separates her from her father and mother that proffer it. Here, she abjects
herself within the same motion through which she claims to establish herself as the mind struggles to touch the skin
of the milk because it exists between nourishment and decay.

The ceramic piece is 4 panels glazed work in Paper clay, connected with black polyester thread. The first panel has
motifs of the balloon and rolling pin with the flower-like looking vulva. The middle two panels are smoothly bruised
skin and the last panel has motifs of breast and hands lying on the porous surface.
The imageries tend to seduce the viewer slowly corrupting their eyes and engaging them in discomfort. The work is
filled with textures adapted from human bodies. It has subtle layers of depictions of death/Pain & Pleasure. It also
has several textures of skin, the human body is objectified here to suggest violence. The violence portrayed here
could suggest a multitude of different forms of abuse, such as; self-harm, masochist sadist, scar, death, corpse,
or any other kind of violence.
The visuals of the work are evolved from my core practice and style of drawing. I have always been struggling with
the representation of such ideas in terms of its interaction and confrontation. This is one of the reasons I chose to
compose absurd image-making to create more ambiguity referencing to the subject. Â There are subtle references to
the social structure in past and present narrated in a very subtle way to create paradoxes. The panels are associated
with the narration from the ancient and medieval way of documenting violence (war memorials) when they glorified
or commemorated the violence.Â

Artwork 1 Commentary: When drawing portraits, I love to bring my work to life by capturing subtle facial expressions
or features that are often unique to the individual I'm drawing. For me, this is usually captured in the eyes. It can
say so much about how a person is feeling and even who they are. In this portrait there’s some ambiguity over
what feelings lie behind her eyes and expression. Some people think she's on the verge of crying while others see
calm assuredness. Creating portraits that can elicit different emotions and feelings from viewers is what I strive for
with each of my pieces.

Artist Statement: Sarah's work focuses on paintings, which can be seen as a study of artificial simulations through
the exploration of social spaces and their use of industrialised technology.
​
The creation of consumerist social space deliberately aims to manipulate experience and affect visitors through the
use of architecture, elaborate interior design and artificial lighting; technology is increasingly present within these
social spaces. The subject matter although based on social spaces, consists of depicting themed parks, elaborate
restaurants and theatre stage sets. Consumerist brands are completely awe inspiring with their anything goes
attitude to the parks or other worlds they create. Huge set designs that push the boundaries of technology to engulf
the viewer into the world that they have created for them to enjoy. Sarah's work depicts this as a simulation of an
experience and socialisation.

Artist Statement: <Tracing act>


The method and theme of my works are focused on tracing of act. Human beings are continuously leaving traces of
their acts as their proofs of living as far as they live. In other words, it could be said that traces emerge the person
itself, and the identity is formed by accumulation of traces.

<Truth of human being and universe>


I also adopt the theory of philosophy, physics, and geometry (such as Idea, dimension, fractal, evolution) into the
theme of my work. The reason why I deal with these theories is I think that all academic disciplines are linked by the
truth of human and universe across the academic fields. In the ancient and previous academic studies, more cross-
cutting researches took place compared from the current studies as represented by Leonardo da Vinci, Plato and
Aristotle. For example, Plato is famous for the theory of IDEA in philosophy though, by utilising the theory of IDEA,
he summarised the proofs for regular polyhedron in mathematics that the previous mathematicians, like Pythagoras,
had constructed the proofs before. Therefore, the regular polyhedron was named as "Plato solid". Throughout these
aspects, I have come to be interested in thinking about the truth of humans and the universe across the academic
fields.
In addition, I'm thinking that art has a possibility to be a medium integrating those academic disciplines into one.
From this point of view, I would like to think about the truth of humans and the universe through my themes.

This artwork was installed at Royal College of Art Summer School Fine Art Group Show 2017. In this works, I focused
on three-weeks period of Summer School, and represented three-weeks traces of the studio work adopting the
theory of four dimensional space-time.
I covered the floor of my studio with drawing papers, and recorded the traces of acts of myself and classmates. As
the studio opened from 10:00 am. to 10:00 pm, I stayed there as possible and tried to leave traces. While, I was
doing this artwork, I have been thinking about the "existence" itself.
<The travel of the existence>
In this work, I'd like to represent the travel of the existence from the past to the future by replacing this artwork. In
short, if I would be selected as one of the Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize artist 2019 and could install there, it could
make the traces (existence) of the summer school move into the future space-time (exhibition in 2019).
About installing way in the exhibition, this work is H350cm xW400cm, so I'd like to roll it and hang from the top.

Artist Statement: Sara Marinangeli is an Italian photographer and video artist.

She is currently attending the MA in Photography at the Royal College of Art, in London.

Recurring themes of her work are the memory, time and loss; indelible marks that are part of everybody's life.

She focuses on the portraiture and self-portraiture, using analog mediums. Films give her the chance to underline
the connection between the handcraft and the passing of time. The time spent in the darkroom gives another value
and a greater importance to the final work.

As Brian Dillon states, In the Darkroom, the work in the darkroom becomes a metaphor of the artist's memory.

Through her practice, she intends to give a new life to processes, moments, people or feeling that are part of her
own past.

Artwork 1 Commentary: Leaving, means to abandon. To go away.
One could state that to leave is a firm and conscious action; but, it can also be considered as non-action, like
stopping from fighting, letting go, contains a secret hope, in this way, of finding something better.

For the ones who stay, the ones that are left behind; leaving becomes a synonym of loss.

'I was eight and my brother was seven, when they divorced, she told me that after some years I could choose to
move with her. But she left us before I could even consider that decision.
Thirteen years have passed since her death; I have always felt like something really important was and is still missing
in my life. With time the pain quietens down but the sensation of emptiness remains the same.
As a wound that doesn’t heal, as a mark that remains on the surface...'

'Left Behind' is a series of self-portraits taken in various rooms of the artist's own house.
In each setting, the artist wears a different dress,
all of those left by her mother to her.

thinking: the biosphere and its interconnections.

A geography graduate and chartered marketer, I am currently studying Fine Art at Cambridge School of Art. My
artistic sense of place and space are enhanced by my movement through the world and my interactions with people.
A heightened awareness of environmental concerns brought about by these interactions provides me with the
context to my work.

We are living in a new geological epoch dominated by humanity - the Anthropocene - an age of mass extinction
caused by global warming. My practice is a response to the human detachment from nature and the environment
that has been observed in society.

I have been collaborating with other artists and professionals in this area and seeking opportunities to work across

Artist Statement: Existing somewhere between the figurative and the abstract, Georgie’s paintings are portals
into memories of places or experiences. Inspired by the natural world, she incorporates artifacts and resources from
nature – sand, mud, natural charcoal – into her work. She is currently artist in residence at Stepney City Farm, a
rural oasis of 2 acres in the heart of London. Brought up in the countryside of Suffolk, Georgie feels at home at the
farm and the fresh air, animals and sense of community provide Georgie with daily inspiration.

Georgie’s method is energetic and visceral and there is a constant struggle to maintain emotionally connected
with the work - which is what gives it integrity - whilst also stepping back and making it visually successful. With little
idea in the outset how her paintings will turn out, she works instinctively into the piece until an end vision becomes
clear.

Since graduating from a degree in English Literature and History of Art at Nottingham University in 2015, she has
had work accepted into the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the Affordable Art Fairs and had solo shows at
Boston Consulting Group, Palm Tree Gallery and Lavenham Hall Gallery. She’s had work shortlisted for the NEAC
Annual Exhibition and NOA Prize and was winner of the Harry Walker Prize at the BSA Annual Exhibition. Her work is
held in the private collection of the Museum of Goa in India and in boutique hotels across the UK.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 42 x 46 x 3cm
Artwork 1 Medium: Oil paint and photography
Artwork 1 Commentary: In this mixed media piece I have painted on top of a photograph I took in Varanasi, India. I
took the photo on a fisherman’s boat from which I watched the morning ceremony of the burning of the bodies.

It was strange because you’d think watching human bodies being unclothed and lowered onto a fire to be burned
would be a very frightening, quite disturbing scene but in fact it was extremely serene. We were on the river so you
couldn’t hear much noise and there was a sort of dissociation with what was going on. You could smell the
burning flesh but there was nothing particularly horrific about it. The way it’s normalised in India and how they
view death – as a natural part of life, - made it all feel quite natural.

In averting the attention from the actual burning at the ghats the stillness of the experience is conveyed.

Artist Statement:

Antimo Bertolino was born in Formia in 1972, and later moved to Milan. His artistic journey is all about experience
and know-how, as these are part of his being on a self-taught path, which intersects his work in the workshop with
his search for a concept.
He graduated as an electronic expert and enlisted as a paratrooper in the Folgore for his military service; for a time
he worked as a boxer in order to pay for the courses he regularly followed as a privatist. These allowed him to grow
technically, deepening the bronze and metal working techniques, including the lost wax casting, which he learned at
the M.A.F. in Pioltello (MI), goldsmith techniques, which he acquired through his training with Luca Solari; the
conservative restoration of furniture, which he assimilated from Ferruccio Amati, and nude drawing, which he
learned at the Centro Scolastico per le Industrie Artistiche in Lugano, Switzerland, where in 2002 he finally
established and inaugurated his own double soul workshop, living as a restorer and creating and elaborating ideas as
an artist.

He took part in many noteworthy collective exhibitions among which, in chronological order, there are,: in 1998 the
critique's special note in the contest La telaccia d'oro in Turin (panel: T.Fornero, M.Viani and M.Mali); in 2000 -30 at
Spazio Hajech at the Liceo Artistico di Brera in Milan; in 2001 Dalla pietra, dal ferro, dal fuoco (curated by Renzo
Mezzacapo) at the Galleria Comunale di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea in Piombino, with his participation in the
same year at the Biennale d'arte contemporanea in Florence. In 2004 he takes part in Tremend'Arte, a collective
exhibition organized by the Municipality of Milan and by the Don Mazzi Foundation at Palazzo della Ragione; in 2017
he is a finalist in the Premio Arte 2017 (Cairo Publishing House/curated by Cairo) and participates in the respective
exhibition at the Palazzo Reale in Milan. In 2018 he exhibits at the Royal Palace in Balchik, Bulgaria, where he is
introduced by the Minister of Culture Rumen Dimitrov, and later at the Ethnographic Museum of Plovdiv, also in
Bulgaria; he participates in the triennial exhibition Mutazioni - in difesa della natura (curated by Al Fadhil and Anna
Radaelli) in Maroggia, Switzerland; he is a finalist in the Malamegi LAB 10 - Art Contest 2018 (curated by Margherita
Jedrzeiewska and Massimo Toffolo) and exhibits at 28 Piazza di Pietra Fine Art Gallery, in Rome; he also takes part in
the First edition of Home Revolution Prize at the fair "La mia casa a Gravina" in the Bari province.

The main critical texts in which he is mentioned are the Catalogo dell'Arte Moderna: gli artisti italiani dal primo
novecento ad oggi (edited by Alessandra Radaelli), Giorgio Mondadori Editore, 2017, and the personal catalog
Antimo B., Bandecchi & Vivaldi Editori, 2000, where several authors wrote about him, including Flavio Arenzi,
Roberto Sabatelli, Laura Milani, Gregory Rossi, Fulvio Vicchi and Paolo Levi.

Artwork 1 Title: morgana
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 95x96
Artwork 1 Medium: carved wood
Artwork 1 Commentary:
edited by Anna Radaelli

The conscious and impeccable technique Antimo Bertolino uses in carving and then painting with acrylic colors his
wooden boards/panels, is the result of his self-taught journey, in which he learnt to blend the work of the restorer
and that of the artist and made them coexist in his work, which reunites contemporary artistic production with that
of the great workshops of the past.

Antimo has had several masters, coming from artistic fields far from each other; the result is a contamination we
certainly can attribute to the Art Nouveau, which he learned through the restoration techniques of antique furniture
or through the goldsmith production, as well as to more modern aristic movements such as Spatialism, Op Art and
Minimalism, all present in this artist's sculptures.

As they are made on wooden panels/boards, at first sight his works look like paintings. However, if we take the time
to observe the waves that are carved in them, new paths open up to the observer. Starting from the physical
experimentation conveyed by the sense of sight, the mind calms down, and with that every attempt to conceptualize
his work. We are carried away by the sensual enjoyment which is given by the movement of the monochrome color,
becoming alive and iridescent thanks to the carvings that refract the light, and to the inner space that is suddenly
aligned with, and part of, the exterior one.

His work is therefore a mirror that amplifies and reverberates the physical and mental world of those who observe
the fractals, the waves, the lights and the colors of his panels/boards, which transform from two-dimensional objects
into real sculptures. They incorporate not only the third dimension (depth) but also the fourth (time) and the
dimension of the observer, who becomes, together with the work, a protagonist of his own perceivable world and of
the one he perceives.

Artist Statement: Danic Lago, a Brazilian who has lived abroad for 20 years, is a modern alchemist. Poet who inhabits
a creative and inventive mind, which unites her experiences and wanderings around the world in works of art.
The lightness with which Danic perceives the world and the nuances that separate nations, made her understand
that being in love with something brings all meanings, from absolute enthusiasm to deepest pain. The collages are
the portrait of this deep and peculiar look of the place that she inhabits in the world, in which the artist understood
that transforming is her driving force.
Her connection with paper can be immediately perceived in her first piece. Without a canvas, a cardboard box was
the base. The artist today works with manual collages, a mix of materials. Mixing elements such as paper, wood,
watercolor, ink, acrylic, gold leaf, fabrics, dried leaves, mosses, pieces of trees and stones, her pieces reflect the
world - it has a Brazilian touch, a Mexican vibe, a European breather, colours and more colours. For having worked
for so many years with trend research, her works are a declaration of love in dressing, each piece a new character.
Danic has the ability to transform her feelings into delicate pieces, full of meaning, that transports those who see
them into a playful world of colours. The artist explores the world and uses materials from nature or that are
reusable, such as discarded wood. Here, her vocation as an alchemist shouts: reuse, transform, and resignify.

Artist Statement: 'Interwoven' is a series of work included painting, wall sculpture, and installation that made out of
silk. There is an idea that knitting all of my works together, an exploration of cultural identity and integration. I found
the inspiration from silk, a cultural-rich material that has become a narrative medium and metaphor for my personal
identity. Immigrated from Vietnam, influenced by Vietnamese cultural heritage and fashion design background, my
artwork was often constructed by balancing these factors. The shifting perception gave me a different perspective
about the material that I believe it can transform and create a cultural experience for the viewer.
I began with a deconstruction and reconstruction process. Each hand-cut silk strip was either pasted directly on the
canvas or soaked in acrylic paint and dried on a plastic sheet. The final result is what I've called silk-skin, a multi-layer
textural structure that is very flexible and sculptable. I also find the importance of the senses and emotions by
transforming a delicate material like silk into a complex surface and sculptural forms. For instance, my installation
'Silk Piece' was constructed in the way the garment would be made with an imagination body. Each fold and drape is
secured temporarily with a push pins and constantly change during the installation process. The artwork form was
not permanent, whenever the piece was reinstalled in a new space the sculpting process was repeated but the result
will never turn out the same.

The concept of kid's drawing with clear skyline and ground line, which implies childhood memories. The inspiration
came from typical idealistic social network images (common in Facebook and Instagram) that usually present people
documenting their ultimate vacation from Paradise, where at the bottom of the photograph their feet protrude and
rest. In my painting the feet can be perceived as being above or below the railroad tracks.
A magical journey in an exotic and green area raises the question: what kind of paradise is that, in this existing world
or perhaps in the next world?
The geometrical outline of the hourglass, presented in the center of my painting, highlights the end of the children's
ambitious dreams. The “sky is the limit― is getting different meanings, when life is being suddenly taken and all
the dreams are converted into bloody mesh of grief and sorrow.
The complementary choice of colours red and green, clashes under this unique circumstance.
The dark stain on the left side represents the train that destroyed the heavenly picture and melted the kids'
aspirations.

Artist Statement: The subject matter of my work is food, tempting, delicious treats and meals. Something to please
both the eye and the senses.

I really started getting into painting a few years ago when my anxiety was at a particularly bad point. Baking was
already something that helped me deal with this so I decided to take that forward and also paint my creations,
making them as realistic as possible which helped me to cope and relax.

As painting helps me through my situation, I would love to now progress and help others viewing my work to find
comfort and an image that will make them smile.

I’m focused on working with oil paints in my practice and developing this skill further throughout my Fine Art
Painting and Drawing degree. I’m also using drawings alongside this to help develop my painting skills through
tone and contrast. I'm continuing to build upon my colour matching to develop my hyper realism facture, discovering
how the colours could become or mimic the food and textures within the food.

Artists who have really inspired me are Wayne Thiebaud, Tjalf Sparnaay and Joel Penkman, looking at their work and
seeing how they’ve produced their artworks and also the reason behind their work has been really interesting.
Researching into their composition choices and background options has helped take my work forward.

oozing cream and the marshmallows which are just about to fall off the edge of the mug and onto the saucer. The

Artist Statement: I make sculpture from life drawing.


I’m in touch with nature allowing me to be solitary and quietly facilitate my escape from reality and regenerate
my soul.
My work is derived from the earth, genuine and authoritative and confidently reflects the earthly beauty of woman.
I start by painting from life the female form, capturing unique gestural movements which must reach something
deep inside me to transpose into sculpture.
A life size steel armature is made from iron and carbon which is chosen for its durability and strength and rendered
with gypsum mined from the ground and mixed with sand, water and hay collected from the floor of my hay store
where fragments of lime dust and leaves are mixed in. It is carefully applied to expose some of the armature and
found objects are considerately placed within, allowing the material to rust and develop its own natural beauty.
Resin is applied to seal and waterproof the sculpture which gives strength, formality and a unique presence.
Mystical but purposeful, created from natures pantry the very essence of my work is intended to elicit an emotional
response making it profoundly different and easily recognisable. It is a celebration of the female form in movement,
a discreet gesture, ephemeral in its execution and a reflection of my close engagement with humanity and nature.
Demonstrating the fragility of life and the hidden sadness and loneliness of death.

Artwork 1 Title: Vernal - (Of Spring)
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 150cm x 120cm x 240cm
Artwork 1 Medium: MiG welded steel armature, pottery plaster mixed with water, hay and lime dust and coated
with epoxy resin.
Artwork 1 Commentary: My work demonstrates the fragility of life and hidden sadness of death through the female
form.
It is also a bold statement of ‘woman’ with large breasts and buttocks, a celebration, sexually confident, a
positive presence, not to be hidden which would deny our very being.
Vernal grew from the loss of 3 loved ones in extraordinarily tragic circumstances, unable to express my true feelings I
found by immersing myself in the making process of sculpture and working though nature, I was able to heal.
Vernal expresses my sense of isolation, loneliness and sorrow felt at that time, life is precious, and this work
demonstrates through my use of natural materials how close we are to being of the earth at any one time.
Vernal delays that outcome, reaches out and protects, offers a safe place.

affects us just as negatively. I hope to capture the wonder and awe of wild places and animals, and to instill a desire

Artwork 1 Title: Intricacies
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 100 x 50 x 100 cm
Artwork 1 Medium: steel
Artwork 1 Commentary: This world, which Jung called a collective unconscious, is part of our personality common to
all: it is the heritage of our distant ancestors. Primitive, archaic, unconscious and universal. Using this cumulative
experience of our species, I noticed that for all people for centuries the circle or sphere meant the truth that we
experience as people in our opinion gradually growing up. A lie that is also experienced by us is a purely human
product. I think that the phenomenon of Lie is closer to us than the truth. We understand it better because we
created it ourselves. A lie in my work has a very simple metaphor - a distorted circle / distorted truth as well as
complexity and some kind of psychological oppression experienced during the act of lying.

Artist Statement: I am a visual artist working predominantly with photography. I use a range of complex, tactile
photographic processes to cross-examine visual representation, to question the role of photography in
contemporary culture and to explore photography-as-performance.
‘Sculptural’ photography is what interests me. I create unique photographic ‘objects’ as part of
installations or environmental works that allow viewer interaction on a more physical and conceptual level than
more traditional methods of display. My works break apart and rearrange their subject matter in order to create
new experiences and memories from the original forms.

Artwork 1 Title: Liminal Stretch I
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 50 x 250 cm
Artwork 1 Medium: Digital C-Type Print
Artwork 1 Commentary: Over the past year I have been photographing coastlines, producing multi-frame panoramas
from single rolls of medium-format film, Liminal Stretch I is one of these artworks, drum-scanned from a single roll of
transparency film.

The multiple frames express time passing and the movement of the camera across the scene reveals the
photographer’s hand, which cannot be separated from the representation. They critique the boundaries between
still and moving images and show how the duration of a photograph can be extended to show time in a more fluid
way. I find this methodology creates an almost vibrating memory of a place. The large panoramic prints in this series
confront and envelop the viewer, forcing a reaction.

Artist Statement: I create images that are intended to feel precious and nostalgic, and reference memories and
imagined places from my childhood in Haliburton County in Canada and life in Japan, the United States and the
United Kingdom.

My work is small in scale and intended to be held and cherished as an intimate memento. Transparent areas thinly
veil glazes of colour, wood singe marks and dapples of pigment.

Developed in layers of oil and enamel, and using a limited colour palette, images are set on sanded and singed
hardwood plywood plaques, wrapped or woven in pure silver, copper or mixed iron wire. They are often
multidirectional, allowing the freedom to explore and view them as you wish.

Artwork 1 Title: Shifting Waterline
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 14.5 x 9 x 1.2 (cm)
Artwork 1 Medium: Oil paint, Lacquer, Heat marking & Sterling silver wire on hardwood plywood.
Artwork 1 Commentary: This image is created to be multidirectional, the reverse of the image allowing the beholder
to hang this painting in either direction. The landscape is set in Algonquin Park in Ontario, a vast landscape that is
easy to become lost in.

The reverse of the image is inspired by a piece of family delphware ceramic, a soft homely British object that is so
opposite from the landscape on the face of the plaque. Being caught between Canada and my British heritage is an
attribute that changes the way I view and think about both homelands.

Plywood has been cut and sanded to the golden ratio. Holes have been drilled in the plaque with a milling machine
and then singed with a soldering iron throughout the base of the painting. Wire has been stitched around the image
to craft a frame which is ready to be hung. Wire is pure silver and intended to oxidise over time.

Artist Statement: There is an alchemical connection in my works and photographs, making my creations in non-
representations, a subjective, informed and spiritualized view. My pieces and images emerge from the chaotic; of a
sum of destructions of aesthetic conventions and rules of art, I integrate them in my practice by potentializing my
work to new possibilities and openness to new paths.
The image chosen for the contest, is one of a larger group of images, which intend not to present a physical
appearance of something concrete, but rather the capture of alchemical moments that penetrate the photosensitive
virgin paper, like a engraved wound. The process of exploration and production of photographic images are merged
through the alchemical evocation advocated by alternative means of photography: “chemigrams― that
correspond to a hybridization between painting and drawing that makes use of photosensitive paper and various
chemical solutions.

Artwork 1 Commentary: Despite the fragility of Human conception about the world, the art, the ephemerid and the
impotence of matter and of the human being, made my concerns do not resist looking for answers in my authoral

is important in my authoral work the approximation between matter (world of tangible things) and man, for both,
Sane and Fragile, perishable and changeable with time-have both a lifetime and undergo constant changes due to
multiple and several variables-being therefore ephemeris and perishable.
This reality contradicts to the divine and the religion - consequently: belief, eternity, intangibility and faceless

Artist Statement: Tropical, other-worldly plants in fake jungles with walls and ceilings, no skies above or deep earth
beneath. Concrete and glass and metal and mist. Glasshouses are microcosmic environments: perfectly curated
tropical gardens, with dense and humid atmospheres of mystery. Long boxes of heat and condensation and palms
and huge, house-sized leaves. Things that shouldn't exist on English soil that DO exist on English soil.

The deconstructed, reimagined environments of exotic lands contained in glasshouses built in England make up the
subject for this series of paintings. Initially inspired by the brutalist architecture of the Barbican conservatory in
London, the series now looks at a variety of British glasshouses, focussing on the intersection between the man-
made and natural.

Artwork 1 Title: SCAFFOLD

Artwork 1 Commentary: This painting focusses on the Barbican conservatory.

Looking at the differences between the brutalist architecture of the building and the tropical jungle-like environment
of the indoor garden, the painting seeks to highlight the contrast between these two seemingly polarised universes.
Using different glazes and mixtures of mediums, an element of the transparent can be recognised - an alien mixture
of paint that questions what is really there and what the artist has invented.

IG: anthamlyn

Artist Statement: I see my works as precisely crafted visual poems that offer up an immediacy of both visual and
written language through repetition, anthropomorphic metaphors, dystopian or utopian potential and dry humour.
They are organic and often take content from stage craft inventions, observation, memory and contemporary digital
life. They are also semi autobiographical and are realized by a combination of techniques such as elaborate
engineering, hand made fabrication and digital technologies. Offering up kinetic objects, performances and ideas in
which aim to not act as hyperbolic motivational offerings but attempt to delve into a surreal and transient state of
shifting human enthusiasm.

The bored, excited, enthusiastic, surreal and painful. The uncertainty of experiencing everything at once, and then
have it all unravel in front of your eyes.

Artwork 1 Title: 119 Me
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 65 x 50 15
Artwork 1 Medium: Waxed birch plywood, acrylic plastic, custom hardware and software, 10" tablet, fabric plaster,
online elements, Twitter.
Artwork 1 Commentary: 'Me’ stands for me. It’s the chemical symbol of Me. The 119th element. That’s
Me. The rush, the glitz the glamour. Me. The dopamine hit of me. I love you, I love me. It’s about you but it’s
about me. I’m thankful for you. I’m thankful for me.

119 Me is a live, reactive sculpture that repeatedly displays optimistic, thankful posts by complete strangers across
Twitter. The tablet in the centre of the work continually runs a live website that finds, filters and displays live global
tweets where the #thankful hashtag has been used.

Each time the #thankful tag is found in a tweet - the tablet draws attention to itself by pulsating bright purple light
and displaying the incoming twitter feed for the viewer to read. Because of the consistently unpredictable content
generated via the tweets, the narrative of the work continuously fluctuates generating an extensive archive of online
thankfulness.

The work looks to resist a potentially cynical overview in the face of the social impact of digital technology by
providing a platform of optimism. Whilst at the same time questioning the hyperbolic nature of these tweets and
their audience, and their potential as tools for self help, competition and the constant need for personal
reassurance.

Artist Statement: Alun Rhys Jones is a UK-based artist, whose practice focuses on themes related to identity,
commodity, media, and popular culture. Recent work has investigated the use of the body, gender and celebrity in a
post internet, late capitalist, consumer society.

Masculinity is in flux. Recent articles into the effects of toxic masculinity on the male psyche have revealed the
extent to which men are both the jailors and prisoners of their own emotional wellbeing. Traditional gender
stereotypes that encourage men to compete with other men and dominate women (and other men) by being
aggressive, worldly, insensitive, physically imposing, ambitious, and demanding can cause long term damaging
effects as they do not allow the ability for weakness or emotional expression and connection to occur.

This toxic masculinity plays out in the disdain for anything that is coded feminine or homosexual. Boys in the
playground are still humiliated and insulted with calls of “don’t be a girl― or “don’t be a sissy―.
They are constantly told “boys don’t cry― and “to man up―. This type of socialisation normalises
violence and aggressive behaviour and quietly endorses it with phrases like “boys will be boys―. This curtailing
of male feeling continues into adulthood with men continually being told to toughen up instead of to open up.

Magazines, TV, films and the Internet are full of these negative gender stereotypes. Media often portray the ideal
man to be muscular and by implication strong, tough and stoic. However the pressure to obtain and maintain the
body beautiful portrayed by these images has led to an increase in body dissatisfaction for men and young adults.
Many men are very concerned about their own physique and feel pressure to gain weight and become more toned.
They were significantly more likely to become depressed and take part in behaviors like alcohol, steroid and drug
use.

Suicide is now the leading cause of death for Australian men aged 15-44 and male suicide rates are three times that
of women. It appears the pressure to look, act, and harden up may be making some men crack.

This drawing "Gandy" investigates and deconstructs the traditional tropes of masculinity today.

The original charcoal drawing “Gandy― comprises a photorealistic depiction of a crumpled piece of paper torn
from a fashion magazine. However in the drawing the paper is crumpled and distorted, the image printed on its
surface twisted and transformed reflecting the aspirational and often unobtainable nature of the body beautiful
promoted by the advertising industry, the speed with which these images are discarded and a reminder of the
unsustainable nature of our throwaway society.

Artwork 1 Title: Are we amused (a.k.a I dream of Serge Faguet)?
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 60x40x3 per piece
Artwork 1 Medium: MDF
Artwork 1 Commentary: The work is laser cut 3 mm MDF. The form I have developed from shape of defunct
component from a broken down domestic appliance. The words are the list of personal inclinations given up by
Silicon Valley millionaire and 'bio-hacker' Serge Faguet as he seeks to improve and extend his life and ultimately
outlive the limitations of the biological human form. The form, from a defunct component, is also knowingly
anthropomorphic and references nostalgic/retro gaming and in this way I want to ask if the human [bioligical form] is
becoming outmoded or is this a retro sci-fi fantasy in itself or for of those who doubt this future, are we hopelessly
out of time? By extension the work also seeks to consider the medicalisation of our lifestyles (itself an indulgence of
the well-set) but also whether being human is to have vices, inclinations and addictions that follow us around, calling
to us, and which we indulge or resist, but which persist. The appeal of these inclinations is also acknowledged in the
cartoon-like look of the form. The material is unassuming - puny and insignificant. The list is neither complete nor
universal - but does it speak to us and what are its gaps? And combined with the words, form, repetition and the
arrangement, they seek to appeal, persist and challenge.

Artwork 1 Title: A Child's Indian Dream
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 60 x 86 x 4
Artwork 1 Medium: Acrylic on Canvas
Artwork 1 Commentary: This is a replica of my very first piece of art I painted in primary school aged 5. My uncle had
returned from spending months in India and told me the most fascinating stories about the extraordinary colours of
the country - the decadent scarves, the colourful turbans, the most richly crafty saris with embellishments. I didn't
understand much about the clothing at the time but I so desperately wanted to paint the colours he spoke of. That
very same week at school, the teacher asked the class to paint their favourite place, and so I painted this. While
doing so, I remember daydreaming about living in the painting with the vibrant colours dancing around me the way
they dance around each other in the painting. It was my Indian dream. My mum kept the original in her kitchen for
nearly 25 years until one day I decided to replicate it and enlarge on canvas. Replicating this piece brought back
wonderful memories of my inner happiness as a child, but it also reminded me that you can never truly replicate
dreams, whether they are conscious or subconscious, as they are all unique moments of creativity.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 0.8 cm X 1 meter X 40 meter
Artwork 1 Medium: Cloth paint on Bubble wrap
Artwork 1 Commentary: “we consume, but how?―

A sentence printed repetitively on a 40 meters long carpet made of bubble wrap, designed to be destroyed.

“Carpet― is a morally disturbing installation, which is just how I wanted it to be. By allowing viewers to interact
(destroy) it directly, the action of consumption would be precisely elaborated solely without the joy of obtaining
goods that consumers wanted, viewers were forced to face the consequences of consumption, naked and
unfortified.

Recently I happened to know the artists that changed me: Hans Haacke and Francis Alÿs. Hans Haacke’s idea of
art works don’t need to be preserved in physical way, and Francis Alÿs’s work “Sometimes Making
Something Leads to Nothing―, set my mind on fire, I desired to make works that affect people with the process,
not the substance.

My works are meant to confuse, amuse people and create chaos among this seemed reasonable world. By
amplifying, ceasing or interrupting the experience among the linear sensing process, put holes in happiness of
granted nature, and drop question marks on objects, actions and intentions.

Artist Statement: My work primarily focuses on how masculinity is shaped and perceived through the loss of
traditional livelihoods and the decay of the environments they once inhabited. I am also interested in how
masculinity is being redefined in the modern era together with the problems and opportunities this presents. I often
like to draw parallels with those other lost and receding worlds of superstition and religion. Having been previously
raised in a remote religious farming community I feel, at once, a historic kinship with as well a distant observer of
these issues.

I am primarily a self-taught artist and work in the traditional media of oils, charcoal and chalk. The work is figurative
though I am keen to introduce elements of ‘accident’ whether, or not, these are serendipitous. Many of the
subjects are characters playing a part which is hopefully conveyed in the image and the title.

I live and work in South London.

Artist Statement: I am creating a split moment where the sanitized and hyper digitized state of branding and
marketing, the consumption and regurgitation of an endless supply of product and online personas, is stripped away.
I am creating a fracture in the denial of our fate, a place to come face to face with the subconscious and what
delves deep within our psyches. I am peaking the curiosity of the viewer and peering into that aspect of our human
condition that first led us down our destructive yet miraculous path of enlightenment. What questions, emotions,
and self-doubt might we come across when we allow ourselves to truly contemplate our own demise, not just under
the threat of global extinction but simply as part of our natural cycle on this planet?

The object becomes an avenue for that. By repurposing materials otherwise unnoticed or discarded after industrial
use, I bring to light the unseen, questioning and transforming a material’s assigned state of being.

Artwork 1 Title: Memory Nest 2
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 25x25x38
Artwork 1 Medium: sculpture
Artwork 1 Commentary: tapestry made from bitumen tar soaked fabric, fashion and theatre industry remnants,
found objects, mixed media

We can trace our uses of bitumen tar as far back as 50,000 years ago, as a poultice for our skin, a sealant for our
homes and bandages, asphalt on our roads, and as the first line of defence for the deep-sea fibre optics that run the
data clouds, sharing our memories and histories at light speed. It is a material so ubiquitous in our evolution that we
rarely consider it as it lives on the shop shelves next to the house paint. We pull it from the bowels of the earth to
cover, seal, and protect whatever we can. What bubbles up to the surface of our psyche, like the bitumen tar
bubbling up to the surface of the earth? How much do we cover and seal away with the cloak of social media, instant
gratification, and consumption?
There are memories imbued in these materials, the waste of manufactured glamour, using the remnants of the
fashion and theatre industries, combined with the primordial nature of tar. By bringing these together, each with
their own histories, into formal and ‘formless’ objects, I am eluding to a world normally unseen and
untouched whilst coming to grips with the possibility of something greater than ourselves.

Artwork 1 Title: Protecting Paradise
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 237,8 x 84,1 x 0,5
Artwork 1 Medium: Digital and Hybrid Media
Artwork 1 Commentary: Description:
Friendship, peace, equality, tranquillity and freedom can protect the Paradise - the most extensive rainforest of
Central and South America. ‘Protecting Paradise: The Embassy Of Environmental Philanthropy’ discusses a
diplomatic and bilateral economic agreement that cultivates environmental protection, ethical authority, and
political trust between China and the small Central American country of Nicaragua, in the wake of a new inter-
oceanic canal infrastructure. This thesis represents a discourse on foreign investments in underdeveloped countries
as well as a demonstration of environmental awareness and protection practices, bringing together tourists and
locals in an environment governed by five principles of peaceful coexistence.
Technique:
Hand drawings and digital models are collaged through successive scaling and layering of either highly specific
tectonic elements or abstract fragments, in constant refinement through application of textures, colours and
hatches. The development is an intrinsic apparatus for exploration that allows for the piece to unfold and speculate
on possible realities on a canvas that eludes the self-centred narcissistic perspectival representation to the
advantage of engaging the reader with a dynamic vertical scroll experience.

Each pieces has a uniqueness because each trail is added individually and then manipulated using tools. The physical

I have always been fascinated with shells and how each one have similarities and differences. I also find the shells
fascinating as they have a really beauty to them however when in the sea they can cause harm if touched. I think this
resonates with glass as when people are viewing it they always want to touch it but are unsure or scared if they are
able to or if it will break.

Artist Statement: It comes as no surprise that we identify ourselves through the choices that we make, after all what

unassuming ones that made all the more difference to our lives .The coat that you bought, that burger you eat last
week or the toilet paper your running low on. As you make each consumer choice your identity grows and in a world
of mechanical reproduction that identify is built on a foundation of fakes we surround ourselves with replicas of the
originals until we can no longer tell the difference between the two. This is hyperreality and it’s a subtle process
that does not shout out at you and show itself, but instead advances in its evanescence.

Hyperreality takes many forms some of which lend themselves to visual art and form the building blocks of my work,
each one holds great significance and juxtaposed create a visual map of this virtual world.

Artist Statement: Coming a long way from academical education of painting and drawing in Russia and few design
schools, Elizaveta has settled in a very individualistic artistic practice, which is based on the special feature of
photographic medium to always have a connection to an existing reality. She uses objects, cloth and paint to create
new constructions and spaces. So, by acting as a painter and a sculptor first, she creates a unique reality, which will
be fixed only in her photographic images in the next step. Both the stretched cloths as well as the medium of
photography transform the 3-dimensional construction into 2-dimensional flatness. On the photographic surface the
viewers can only see a familiar materiality of the fabric and the paint that was put upon it. This is a hint towards the
means of classical painting: paint and fabric – the canvas. So, she investigates how the classical artistic media
influence each other and how the borders between them melt away nowadays.

The picture gives the spectator an opportunity to relate to the motif and leaves room for interpretation. The analysis
of human perception and the wish for people to think more about our visual culture and its manipulation is the basis
for Elizaveta Podgornaia's work.

Artist Statement: Art is a gateway for healing.


My artwork comes from a place of pure emotion. In the absence of shapes or images somehow I’m able to
communicate my experience with unintentional brush strokes, often whimsical, sometimes I use my hands,
sometimes it gets messy. This is the way I connect with my canvas.
I felt the urge to begin painting in late summer 2016. I was on sabbatical from a very high-powered banking career.
At the time I felt burned-out - I needed to bring myself to center and began a personal process of healing.
I’d been struggling with depression, although I didn’t know I was depressed but kept going through the
motions until I realized I needed healing. For years I suppressed the inner turmoil that stemmed from traumatic life
experiences. I had internalized my suffering, eventually my smile and positive personality were not enough to cover
the pain I was in.
I like to use recycled materials and whatever else I find to create. The resources always come to me. I never have to
look far to find them. I do not compete in my work. I was very competitive in my career but in my art it doesn’t
matter. Art provides a space for me to be free without any criticism or competition. I enjoy my work, I know it is
beautiful but sometimes it is not beautiful depending on how I feel. I try not to judge but appreciate my work. I’m
at peace with what it is.
At this point in time I'm embarking upon a new adventure. A new path of discovery; one filled with personal passions
and creativity. I've always been an Artist. There was an insatiable thirst for purpose that went unfulfilled until I
discovered the artistic medium. Once I gave myself permission break free and try new things the elements of
purpose, fulfillment and abundance rushed in.
I am an expressionist painter. I've taken time to develop my work and share it with the world. This has been my
process for healing and healing is continuous! I'm inspired and refreshed by the new experience.

Artwork 1 Title: Meta/morphosis
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 568x320
Artwork 1 Medium: video
Artwork 1 Commentary: This submission is part of a series of three video works titled ‘Meta/morphosis’ using
films of patterns of light and shadow to communicate the meaning that both absence and presence carry in the
process of being. In chasidic tradition, the essence of being - ‘ein sof’ (the infinite, or the divine) - is imagined
as existing in all of space. Unbearable and incomprehensible to human perception, the divine, or life force,
constricted its light, through its reduction making creation possible for humanity.

Similarly, our obsession with completion, wholeness, perfection distracts from the necessity and beauty of empty
space, the unknown, darkness in being and creating towards the idea of ‘completion’. Little thought is given to
the appreciation of absence, void as a natural and valuable stage in a life cycle, and a necessary condition for having
the space to step outside the complete, the mediated, the perfect, the systemised, and imagine alternative and new
solutions. In absence, anything can be imagined.

That space therefore can be read not as a threatening void, but part of the same infinite space, or canvas, just
leaving room for one’s own understanding, movement, creation. The videos invite the viewer to connect to the
feeling of the waxing and waning of this at different levels of detail and pace, as part of the same universal process
of change and continuity.

Artist Statement: The quest for the invisible pulls at the heart of humanity. The reconnaissance, translation,
performance and innate intuition of one’s collective consciousness can provide us with some short-lived
foundations. Why is memory? My practice outlines and neutralizes a set of theories based upon how the perception
of memory is used as a medium. Detail is specifically important, recycling both historical and contemporary
examples, we can view memories as a controlled chaos rather than a stagnant archive. Fragmentary traces of
memory can be remastered rather than coherent things merely to be reproduced. Ballpoint pen whispers a more
subliminal message throughout my works. Each piece requires an immense amount of time and labor, yet the
medium remains a ballpoint pen, a medium that will fade away. This is a direct comment towards the abstraction of
memory over time, as we grow these memories become only ours to share with ourselves; the grand moment of a
complex drawing starts to fade. The sections of blues, purples, and greens blotch together, turn white, and we
become comfortable with this abstract missing memory. Looking inward becomes reflective, creating artworks
becomes reflexive.

Artwork 1 Medium: Ballpoint Pen on Arches Hot-press paper mounted on wooden panels
Artwork 1 Commentary: The dream of a memory represents the past. present, and future. These experiences were
never fully captured even at the time, and the things stored up constantly change their nature in the super positional
mix. Unsystematic Narcissism is the combination of reality and fiction. The act of autobiographical remembrance
obliterates the act of memory by reducing the past to only one current context. It also exceeds, struggling to keep
the past in place, by creating a past which was never really present. As one activity pattern flickers across brain
pores, others subside, alter irretrievably, they slip. This artwork personally represented the letting go of a previously
"solidified" memory.

Artist Statement: I am a British artist living in France next to Mâcon. I started painting about eight years ago but
more intensely for the past two years.
I paint on large surfaces using acrylic paint, spray paint and running paint through bottles of sauce into the painting.
I also use stencils and have recently started using acrylic « felt tip » pens.

Last year, I started to look for places to exhibit my work. I was very privileged to be selected by the Georges Blanc
(the three star Michelin chef) art gallery in Vonnas, next to Lyon. They offered me a solo exhibition for three months
from May 2018 to July 2018. This has allowed me to be invited to exhibit my work more and last year I sold 20
pieces!

I have been thinking about entering your award for a few years now but did not feel the time was right for me to do
so.
However, this year I know the time is right because I have found a strong and meaningful theme for my next series
of paintings.

A few months ago, I was watching Karen Edward’s and Gemma Atwal’s documentary Stolen Daughters. An
overwhelming urgency to paint these girls/women’s portraits took hold of me.
I started reading their stories in news paper articles, on the internet and watching footage of their upsetting
testimonies about being abducted from their homes, villages and schools by the « monsters » that call themselves
Boko Haram.
The need to show their pain, distress, brokenness in my painting lead me to start this series of portraits.
Whilst I was in the process of developing the idea behind this series, the theme became larger; I wanted to pay
homage to all the girls and women who put their lives in danger just to have access to education.

This series began with a number of drawings; drawings of the faces of the women whose stories I was listening to:
Saa speaking at the Geneva summit for human rights and democracy in 2015 and telling her audience how at 11.34
pm she was abducted from her school or Joy telling of her brave escape from the Boko Haram lorry when she
jumped out of it in the middle of nowhere.
How could I get their message across through my work? How could I use the style I have been developing over the
past two years to in globe their fight for the right to be educated.

I often work in French schools. Education means a lot to me. Needles to say I would love to be selected for the award
and be able to present this series and the ideas behind it to a larger audience.
Thank you for reading this presentation.
Yours sincerely
Pamela.

Artwork 1 Medium: framed coton canvas
Artwork 1 Commentary: I have spent a lot of time finding the pathway to follow but now that I have found it, the
actual painting has become clear:
I use acrylic paint that I apply onto the canvas with large paintbrushes so as to achieve the effect of big « greedy »
strokes. This represents the greed/need for being allowed to « learn ».
I also use spray paint and stencils to give an urban and contemporary feel to my work even though the fight for the
right to education for women dates back hundreds of years; I like the contrast!
I have let the spray paint run down the canvas because it looks like tears; the many tears these women must have
shed throughout their struggle.
I put paint into bottles of sauce and use the tips like a pen to makes « squiggly » streaks on certain parts of the
painting to enhance the dept of the streaks made by the spray paint as well as to enhance their movement. I
developed this technique whilst working on my exhibition for the Georges Blanc art gallery.
The words are tattooed into the headscarf. I want to make a parallel with body art and the messages people write on
their bodies. The idea behind this is to show how today, when someone has something important to say or to fight
for, they frequently write it on themselves.
Finally, I have integrated wallpaper into the portrait. It’s some I have left from when I was redecorating my
bedroom; I spent a lot of time thinking about the path to follow lying on my bed, staring at the wall, so this
wallpaper has been an important part of the idea behind the portraits!!!
I do hope you like the one I have selected.

Artwork 1 Title: Lacunae, No. 7
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 33x45
Artwork 1 Medium: photography (photo printed on dibond, acrylic facing)
Artwork 1 Commentary: For my Shadow Language Series I borrow casting objects from others that are invested with
their emotion and memory. Borrowed with the invested objects are stories containing autobiographical content,
revealing the lender’s personality, memory, hopes, fears, and ultimately their sense of identity.

I create a shadow with each object by manipulating its position in 3D space, the intensity of light source, and hanging
distance to receiving surface. The resulting 2D trace is a shape that exists for a short duration, until it is recorded,
fixed and frozen by my camera’s lens. Lender’s stories inform my manipulation of the object whilst I am
composing a shadow. However I’m aware that I cannot experience the specific emotion of the lender and my
visualisation of their memory is based upon my own experience.

The shadow’s detail does not allow identification of its casting object, or reveal a value for human use. Each
shadow is infinitely reduced to itself, impenetrable, a meticulous, silent, glowing assertion of unclassifiable, de-
familiarised form, hovering between shadow and object in the viewer’s eye.

Taken separately, each shadow becomes a manifestation of, or “remains― of, my exchange with the lender.
Placed together, these “remains― form a sort of language. I often present them in the guise of a logograph,
and sometimes as an object in themselves. Ultimately they are a visual language resisting verbal interpretation.

My Shadow Language is dependent on context, designed to absorb a multiplicity of meanings, coexisting in harmony.
My intention is to reflect a plurality of experience, with an “effacement of the agent―. The focus here is not on
something signified by language, but on the infinite meaning-generating potentiality of language through its focusing
on itself and ever renewing itself.

Shadows are fleeting, and in physics, described as “holes in light―. Here they are non-verbal language
untethered to literal meaning. They are something of our “hyper-real― world, of the unanchored over-
information that we increasingly drift in.

Artist Statement: I have always been drawn to the sea, the expanse of sky, and tones — the promise of possibilities
of a wild and bracing experience. The coast of Pembroke has its unique colour palette of Prussian blues and Persian
greens to Payne’s grey and translucent Burnt Sienna. Browns and purple were a memory documented of a trip to
the Islands of Muck and Egg of the West Coast of Scotland. The building of surface and texture evokes a tactile
experience of sand, sea and rock. A sense of place and my relationship with that place is at the heart of my practice, I
work primarily from sketches drawn in situ. These inform my approach, but soon emotion and memory guide me.
Graduating from Gwent College of Higher Education in Fine Art In the early 90s. I have worked as a Teacher of Art
since, painting and creating when I could. I have always painted using colour as a language to express my thoughts
and feelings. In the early years, it was the effects of bright contrasting colours which concealed more profound
thoughts. During my 40s I used a very muted pallet working over patchwork canvases. I have a multi-disciplined
style, soft sculpture, stained glass, bookbinding to name a few. Exhibiting in Italy and showing my work in Wales and
beyond, plus accepting commissions have given me the confidence to use media and colour, texture and scale.
However, it’s my recent body of work which has excited me the most.

Broad Haven By on the Stackpole Estate, Pembrokeshire coast.
The rock is called Chapel Rock and it dominates the beach's view, tempting you to swim out to it. the Pembrokeshire
coast has an unique light filled with Prussian blue hues and Malachite greens, skies of cool grey and petrol hues. the
weather in the west coast of Wales rolls in and the sea shows its intent.

Artist Statement: I am a multi-disciplinary artist exploring sound, colour and pattern using a Chladni plate and
Newton's colour wheel.

I am fascinated by how we can 'see' sound and I have developed my practice through the process of using a Chladni
plate to create patterns from sounds played through it, and then using assigned colours from the colour wheel.

I am intrigued by traditional crafts and love learning these when creating a piece. Often I will take a workshop, go to
a skilled craftsman or research the best methods when making my work.

I graduated in 2006 with a degree from UCA (University for Creative Arts) and completed a Masters in Fine Art at
University Arts London, Chelsea College, 2007. I also teach art at a school in Bromley.

Artwork 1 Commentary: This is an homage to my piano teacher, Elizabeth, who has been teaching me since I was

This piece is created from the chord of G major (notes G, B, D), whereby three separate glass panels are hand
painted in the pattern and colour that correspond to that note (through these of the Chladni Plate). The glass panels
create a translucent layered piece which allows the viewer to see the chord through colour and pattern.

Artwork 1 Title: "La Puerta Dimensional"
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 80 x 77
Artwork 1 Medium: Photograph ED. 1/5 Print on Dbond
Artwork 1 Commentary: In Mitos Submarinos, Marco Ferraris expands the sphere of elements to water, where new
gods, belonging to different religions, meet. They carry on their search of origins, coming back to a sort of primordial
amniotic fluid. The mother goddess Athirat and Atargatis, mermaid- goddess of fertility, meet other water gods, like
Delpriandea, muse of the dolphins, giving birth to a myth of regeneration. The water element, through magic,
represented by Aradia, enables transformation. In the alternation between darkness and sharp flashes of light, the
figures meet, lightly touching each other, and, suspended in a sculptural balance, as in the previous pictures, shape
the surrounding environment.
The island represents an open space we visit to find new meanings each time. Although we are aware – as
Prospero is on his own island - that recreating an uncontaminated microcosm, away from the troubles of the world
we come from, is often an illusion, we know that, as Borges writes in his Fragments from an Apocryphal Gospel (used
as a comment on the images),“ Nothing is built on stone, everything on sand, but our duty is to build as if sand
were stone (41)―.

Artist Statement: Mitchell Smith, London

I am concerned with the effects of societal constructs in relation to both individual and communal spirituality. Multi
disciplinary works are centred on the theme of mortality and empathy.

We are malnourished of a potential and genuine freedom. In fast changing times, the depletion of faith reveals a
damaged social fabric. Capitalism has not provided an adequate replacement to support communal consciousness. I
believe that a shared sense of belonging and purpose is lacking. This can be observed in multiple aspects of society,
with mental health issues on the rise, growing poverty, swelling nationalism, further generational division and an
evident yearning for socialist alternatives.
We must question our privileges (or lack of).

My aim is to provide a striking visual environment, which an audience can engage with due to the occasional
presence of biological substances within the works. This visual language is contrasted amongst the technological
background, displayed through digital art, photography and light installation. I attempt to test the artist's role of
social commentator; ensnaring an initial response with use of bold but naive humour, works are loaded with further
layers of political and social concern when more closely analysed.

Artwork 1 Title: HELL_IRL
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 119 x 84 cm (A0)
Artwork 1 Medium: Digital Painting, MS Paint programme
Artwork 1 Commentary: This piece encapsulates the hellish realities and times of the West. I describe this as an
'emotional responsive map'. Depicting multiple themes, particularly political, with clear intentional bias against
contemporary right wing politics.

This artwork was created using MS Paint, one of the first and most rudimentary digital painting programmes. This
choice of media speaks loudly when faced against today's technology and digital software. I grew up using this
program to optimistically and naively draw rockets and cartoon characters. I feel that it is able to represent my
generation aesthetically, even at a quick glance. Using MS Paint as an adult to draw the EU flag on fire was a strange
and surprisingly painful process for me.

My objective in this piece is to present a visually digestible anti-celebration of everything that feels wrong in my
vicinity. It's hard to keep up, to stay informed and address everything that is going on, and it's an overwhelming
mess. In many ways it is a self-portrait.

Artist Name: Ronan Somerville

IG: rps.artiste

Artist Statement: My work is the product of internal dialogues and confusions. The imagery I use is not drawn from
real life, but instead it is imagined. Because of this, I am allowed complete freedom to create fictional worlds in
which symbolism reigns supreme. Each illustration holds a nagging feeling of pain, whilst still being hopeful in their
childish imagination. Growing up in the countryside commuter town of Stowmarket, Suffolk, I was exposed only to a
painfully white, middle-class culture (or the lack-thereof). I soon tired of its supposed ‘beauty’, and so stopped
looking to the world around me for artistic influence and instead turned to looking inside, pushing my vivid
imagination and bringing this to life. For me, the lack of inspiration is inspiration in itself. Since moving to London to
study at Goldsmiths University, I have been shown the exciting possibilities of what art can be, and what art can do
for me. I look forward to continuing to develop my practice and my place in the artistic community.

Artwork 1 Title: J'adoube
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 64x64x either 10 (with pieces) or 3 (without pieces)
Artwork 1 Medium: Paint, chequered paper on board
Artwork 1 Commentary: I wanted to imagine my own mind as both an environment and something that could be
interactive. The illustration itself is depicting a 'Yellow Submarine'-esque world occupied by magical creatures and
chaotic happenings, and that is really a metaphor for both mine and maybe everybody else’s subconscious. This
metaphor develops when you play the game – chess is an important symbol, as a timeless game of war depicting a
medieval battle. I have taken this literal meaning and applied it to the human mind’s internalised conflicts and
complexities. The idea of 'playing the game' is essential to symbolising the fragility and dynamism of the mind. All of
the imagery on the board has been collated from individual drawings in my sketchbooks, some from my low points
and some from my high points. Confronting my personal history and coalescing together the otherwise separate
moments of joy and pain into one fluid environment stands testament to the idea that I am the result of all that has
happened to me, and that the same can be said about everyone. The board also comes with a set of non-traditional,
hand-made clay pieces. These fit the monochrome, illustrated style of the board.

Artist Statement: Torres Machado portrays creation in a constant stage of birth and agony. He’s an artist who
develops critical and documentary processes on his various bodies of work. He inhabits the extremes of rigorous
geometry and lyrical abstraction. At both ends, his notion of society, art market, and public participation are present.

Through his artworks, he sets up expectations in the viewer and then he changes them. By playing the game of the
unexpected is where he creates the fields for new experiences. It makes you look at the world around you in a
different way. His “unexpected" comes in varying degrees of sophistication. In every art piece, there are criteria
that is been developed, that are both historical and go beyond historical periods. He reveals that the judgment of
history in art isn’t always right, making us rethink the actual meaning of taste in the art world and its continuous
changes through time.

Artwork 1 Commentary: The Data Center #9 is part of my ongoing Data Centers series. In this body of work, I
simplified the shapes to make my artworks susceptible to the historical as much as to the humanistic approach.
Through a variety of colors and hues taken from currencies, the Data Centers reflect the transition from the object to
digital of our time. The trajectory of the bills touched by hundreds if not by millions of people is what prompted me
to develop these artworks. It reveals a different approach to history by adding a layer of coherence to the
relationship between money and the visual arts.

Artist Statement: In 2010 Alberto started experimenting different medias on canvas, bringing volume to the flat,
white surface; initially he started working with fabrics and iron creating “sculptures on canvas―, sometimes
mixing oil and acrylic. On the canvas was transmitted by the artist a complete sense of freedom, no technical rules
were actually applied on the process, leaving some results entirely to faith―.

In the last works Alberto has been working on representing the actual process of a “thought― instead the
subject per se, bringing on the canvas the impulses our brain receives, how it receives the information from the
external-self, how the brain evolves a concept from chaotic into a fluid and patterned.

In 2018 Alberto created a new technique, “Tela Gonfiata― (swelling canvas); “this is a new way to interpret
a painting, it is a reconstruction on the canvas, bringing the colors to a different dimension, where not the object but
the actual color is alive and moving in and out the canvas―.

as my dad was a keen painter and crafter. We grew up in a busy household with lots of crafty things going on. My
dad would make dolls house miniatures,Plaster moulds and models and paint often, which spurred my interest
initially. As a teen I went to college and studied psychology, English literature art and design, floristry and history. I
left college and was trained as a tattooist for some years before falling pregnant with my daughter. Some years after
my partner was killed by a vicious knife crime, to which I was left a single mum and with ptsd. I coped with my
trauma and grief by indulging more into my art and painting, the only way I knew how, with passion. Along with
music, a dark sense of humour, maybe a warped veiw on the world, I found a place in my heart where my art stems
from. My daughter has keenly inherited an interest in drawing too, and often uses these opportunities to speak
freely and openly about moments in our lives which have bought us to here, and a time to organically remember her
father. I truely beleive with art and therapy we can achieve and overcome anything. Now a single mum to two
beautiful children, one seven and one a year old, I create candles, artworks and alternative home decor and sell local
at fairs and markets and online via Etsy. I'm yet to make my business a dream come true. My candles are made with
Herbs and oils to bring out the natural wonders of the materials used often colourful and pretty and fun to make,
which contradict my artworks which can be alternative and dark. I work with acrylics and mixed media, although will
give most things a try. It's taken me some years to perfect my niche dark style, and am yet to see and excited to see,

important role in achieving a satisfying result. In order to lose yourself completely in your work, you must master
yourself emotionally and intellectually.

The focus of my work in general is human in today’s world and their truth. Growing up in the north of Sumatra
surrounded by Chinese, Batak, Javanese and now Balinese cultures compelled me to be observant and sensitised to
human nature. I like to observe human nature: how do we interact with each other; the energy we transfer and
receive; the things we show, we hold, we wonder, and how the smallest gestures could be translated in a thousand
words. I believe that human beings are the biggest mystery in this world; we are constantly challenging our
surroundings and our inner selves. Even though the world is changing, the essence of being stays the same. It is my
calling to understand these truths and capture the substances into my work.

Artwork 1 Commentary: Spanked Boy is part of the project 'Rituals of Perpetual Catharsis', which considers the
therapeutic potential of BDSM as a way to deal with the emotional effects related to experiences of sexual abuse.
Through staged photography, kink-oriented volunteers helped illustrate anonymous testimonies, which speak of the
everyday realities of survivors
living with the trauma: their journeys of struggle and self-restoration.

The image submitted illustrates 'Sam's' testimony which was created over a two week online dialogue.

Extract from the testimony:


'After feeling how traumatic the incident was, that night, I think I went through a process of burying the trauma,
quite frankly. It would come up of course, and I started to address it in therapy, but its emotional effects were quite
a deal more mysterious because of the repression of it. I had the quite understandable fear that being molested I
would in turn become a molester myself. The psychic trauma remained until recently when I did EMDR therapy. You
know you're not a threat to say, a younger person, and the idea of sex with a younger person is disgusting, but you
have this feeling and fear in your gut that somehow, you'll find yourself repeating the trauma. It's the traumatic
experience echoing and trying to find a voice and its very disturbing.'

Artist Statement: The main aim of my practice is to unsettle and unnerve; it is about taking over a space and creating
a sense of unease. My practice involves the creatures that I call ‘The Unnameables’. They are a hive of
invasive, furry, alien growths that squirm and take over a space. I see them as biomorphic: they have a resemblance
to living creatures, but they exist in their own right. Their swarm-like behaviour in the space is important. The threat
of their mass, together, taking it over, whether that is on the floor, walls or above. They are a hive, a flock, a mass.
The environment is a large part of my practice. They do not sit on plinths like a sculpture - this turns them into

was an experiment and now they cannot be tamed, twisting and distorting as they move, feeling their way through
like ivy or the sucker-like limbs of an octopus, contorting and wriggling over each other; disgusting. It seemed so
harmless at the time. One of the creatures scrunched and crawled into a tight set of lockers - being too large for the
space, its legs sprawled and collapsed out onto the floor. It has found its home. The others start to join, like mould
on surfaces, slowly infesting until the whole place has been taken over, one by one they fill the lockers and sinks
until there is no room for more. As a consequence, it starts again.

My artistic purpose is to create art that seeks to evoke curiosity. It is up to the viewer to explore their imagination

it can be interchangeable with my own experience. I want to communicate a fascination for the unknown as life is
full of questions.

The Historic English Heritage monument Stonehenge helped me to develop this way of thinking. To this day its
purpose and meaning still largely remains unknown. It forces myself to be curious, to learn anew and reflect upon
my existence.

I do not intend to replicate its presence in any way but use this as a foundation to generate ideas around

Trees have the ability to communicate, to help each other, to defend themselves, among so many others. They
are so alive and need to be preserved. Unfortunately, today deforestation ends with millions of trees, extinguishing
species that live in the forest and contributing to global warming.
My painting research is an emotional representation of the feelings I experience under the canopy of the forest, and
among its beautiful trunks, branches and leaves. I pretend to represent in some way the spiritual relationship of the
forest with humans, through paintings that show its ephemeral nature, its slow rhythm through millennia, its way of
being a community, as well as being witnesses of our history. It is a documentation of the necessity of the vitality of
the forest for our own vitality.
My work, is a constant experimentation, open to have transformations and different results oil painting can give me.
I work in different formats, doing color studies for larger canvases and always looking for the work of masters who
have used nature and spirituality as their motives. In this seek I am always moving towards the abstraction and at
the same time trying not to lose figuration, painting with layers over layers, where the drawing appears and
disappears. My ultimate goal is to transmit to the peaceful atmosphere through the forms of the forest, and with
that to awaken the awareness of the sacred value of trees and their need to preserve themselves.

Artwork 1 Commentary: Based on the Chilean forest, Nothofagus is a large group of native trees that live in the
south of South America. The Nothofagus trees are strong, old and their ecosystem is pristine. This is the first painting
of a series still in progress and it has a deep relation with the artist personal life.

Artist Statement: My paintings draw viewers into pleasurable, contemplative expanses. They are intense
abstractions of humanity marked by a balance of movement within the frame or installation space. They encase
equal parts sensation and inquiry. When creating watercolor style paintings, I have adopted a signature process
including Japanese Sumi inks. These are applied in much the same manner as watercolors, though they inherently
less yielding. That restriction allows for new approaches and methods. The results include brilliant, durable pigments
rooted in mid-motion gestures. The palette and forms shift according to content and mood, but the inherent
tenacity of effort remains consistent within this body of work. While giving credit to the advancements of the
Abstract Expressionists, I take a decidedly contemporary approach. I use the movement of form and line to express
desire and vitality. These methods extend the French Tachisme approach into this postmodern era. Key influences
include Anselm Kiefer, Gerhard Richter, Frank Auerbach, and Norman Bluhm. Kiefer’s watercolours, and
especially Essence/Ex-sistence, provide a favorable visual and philosophical point of departure. Richter’s
adoption of chance operations and other experimentations support endless lines of inquiry. Auerbach’s approach
to the paint medium emboldens my non-traditional methods and I affirm Bluhm’s commitment to pleasure. My
latest collection includes a series of metaphysical nudes based on simple drawings. These push the idea of a
simplified line representing a dynamic subject and sensations. The works share those concepts with the Blue Nudes
of Henri Matisse. Both provide the sensation of sculptural objects, even within the flat images.

Artist Statement: My work focuses on concepts to do with the self, and how these aspects of our lives change us,
twist us, and constantly evolve who we are. Family history, culture, memories, life and death, the mind and the
psyche and perceptions are a few concepts that absolutely fascinate me in how they individually make a person, and
create a person’s identity. We are not the same person we were 10 years ago, for example. These aspects of our
lives continue to transform us, and continue to change us. It is this change, this transformation, that interests me.
I aspire to create work that though might not necessarily be about the viewers themselves, as I base my work on a
lot of my own personal experiences, I do aspire to challenge viewers on how my work affects them on a personal
level, by challenging their perceptions and assumptions of the concept that I am bringing forth in the work. I want
viewers to really question the concepts of my projects and how these concepts affect them.
I have always been one to express my interests and ideas through my artwork, be it in the format of photography
(digital and film) or painting, particularly in the form of portraiture. It is throughout my constant research that new
areas of interest arise, often leading to the next project.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 40x60x5
Artwork 1 Medium: Film Photography
Artwork 1 Commentary: “Non Compos Mentis― is a photographic series of my deepest thoughts and emotions.
Whilst conceptual, as it is based on my battle with depression and anxiety, one could also call it documentary, as it is
my way of expressing how I portray it visually. Being able to express my internal state through my work has helped
me to define what depression and anxiety is to me, but also to my family, friends and viewers, who might not
understand what it is that those with depression feel. It was also a way to reach out to others suffering - a means of
communication to the outside, as though to say we are not alone in this battle.
That being said, I often find myself drawn to sadness. I usually feel stumped for inspiration for my artwork if there
isn’t a source of sadness to draw from. The psyche itself is a fascinating thing. So many famous artists, writers
and poets alike have turned to their work in dark times. You could say it poses the question – does mental illness
drive people to art, or does art drive people to mental illness?

Artist Statement: I'm an emerging artist based in Surrey. My current work is underpinned by a curiosity around
observing materiality of clay – both in how it records every interaction during the making process, and the context
of the ceramic object in the space and cultural time where it was created.
​
When we explore objects, we look for clues of expression from the artist and object – actions, scenes and events
that are visible within its construction. Investigating a moment in time to build imaginary scenarios of how the object
was made, what it is made from, the making environment and the thoughts of the maker, we construct a narrative
from its characteristics. My work investigates how implied movement within an artwork can provide the viewer with
a shared experience of the past making event.
​
My practice encourages exploration of process by combining tools to research, provoke and reveal ideas in an
attempt to re-invent traditional forms and mindsets. I produce a range of work from small sculptural forms to large
scale sculptures for installation.

Artwork 1 Commentary: This work explores the material qualities of clay when exposed to the steps of a specific
making process.

The process of making performed in this work follows a procedure of repetition, compression and cut. This approach
deliberately builds tension in the forms, adding a level of uncertainty about the outcome, and leaving the material
and process to decide the output.

Artist Statement: The notion of contemporary space sits at the centre of my practice. It is however an unstable area.
Recent work has encompassed a critique of spatial alienation and the instability caused by the bleeding of virtual
space into the physical and vice versa. The public and private are becoming increasingly blurred, and with this issues
around control and freedom are thrown into question. With this in mind, many of my paintings sit on the border
between realism and abstraction and have an unfixed quality, largely empty and peculiarly lit. Conventional
narrativity is challenged and time appears to exist in limbo between something that has just or is about to happen.
Throughout, the uncanny is referenced, the position or depiction of an object or plane just-off, to invoke a sense of
unease.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 30x40x2 CM
Artwork 1 Medium: Oil on canvas
Artwork 1 Commentary: My most recent painting ‘Emblema’ extends my analysis of contemporary space. It
does however call upon the more traditional narrative of the still life, yet expands upon this to question how
technology, genetically modified articles and the body are blending, partly subject to the institutionalised control of
conglomerates both inside and outside of the home. Inside the bowl lurks something simultaneously organic and
artificial, a hybrid form either mutant or miraculous. So mangled and melded from other detritus it lacks a fixed
identity, engineered to mutate endlessly into new sterile and plastic forms.

Artist Statement: Joyous uplifting abstracts aimed to transport and transfix the viewer. I like to create work that
from a distance looks like a painting but when you inspect it closer it is not what it seems. I would describe myself as
a process colourist. Inspired by artists such as Klee, Matisse and Picasso my works are usually large scale, multi
layered and developed through a series of processes and rules that I set for myself and with a limited colour palette
for each work. I start with a line drawing that I work into with colour, then I stitch into the works with a sewing
machine, disrupting the surface and using the stitch as line, before working into them again with another layer of
colour. The final outcome is determined by the processes and colours, it is not pre-planned. I am particularly
interested in colour and the way that the placement of colours relative to each other impact on the feel or mood of a
work. I use Japanese paper because of its colour and fabric like qualities. The final stage is to mount the paper on
board and then apply resin. The resin reacts with the water-soluble crayons and intensifies the colours. The end
works have very rich surface texture and often have a sense of 3D. I am always intrigued by how work has been
constructed and I hope to achieve that in my own work.

Artist Statement: I’m an abstract painter working from my studio in Warwickshire.


My work comes from looking at the patterns, shapes, forms, and colours of my surroundings. My paintings may
remind the viewer of these sources of inspiration, but I try not to make “pictures of― any of it. I use an
abstract language of mark making that is both personal and universal. A visual language that I hope has the power,
like music or literature, to uplift, and communicate. The shapes and symbols I use vary depending on my current
inspiration, but I often repeat certain lines, shapes and symbols, such as crosses, circles and cup shapes. You may
also discover fragments of maps, or words buried beneath the surface. Although these elements appear in an
abstract context, they retain echoes of meaning which the viewer can relate to as they respond to the painting.

Artist Statement: The painful suffering from cultural conflict could transform and develop into hope through unity
and empathy

My textile work started from a need to express the unity of my mixed cultural heritage. The despair I feel of different
cultures and religions suffering in conflict drives me to communicate important messages of acceptance, empathy
and hope in my work. It is possible through understanding these messages there could be more harmonious
outcomes.

My work is about creating expressions of hope emerging from this pain. It is essential to me to that the context of
my work leaves an impression on the viewer, leaving them to contemplate and consider.

The materials I use are chosen for their tactile quality, seeking to create a comforting feeling. They include yarns,
threads and fabrics and involve techniques of knitting, wrapping, felting, knotting and stitch. Process is also
significant and references therapeutic, meditative and calming practices.
I create soft sculptures and wall hangings as well as detailed drawings. These drawings provide an alternative
viewpoint and compliment my 3D work.
To encourage the viewer to engage with my work, I use the imagery of cages, bundles and wrapped forms. The
coloured yarns provide a metaphor to show the transformation from the blood spilt and pain of suffering through
graduated tones to ivory conveying hope. Knots express tension, wrapped bundles convey unity and cages suggest
protection.

My practice as an artist will continue to evolve with new areas of interest leading to the next body of work.

However it's more likely it's a metaphor for how innocent partners are treated like a dirty secret by unfaithful

Her giving stare forces you to become apart of the artwork placing you behind the lens.

The polaroid is folded and creased as a symbol for the pain and damage sustained externally despite only
demonstrating purity and unrelenting selflessness. All of which can never be removed and will be forever carried

Artist Statement: For me sculpture comes from nature. It is tactile and appeals to the senses. In sculpture, I hope to
evoke the sense of power and majesty when I’m in the natural environment. I look up to the trees and the
flowing water; each element of nature creates a different feeling that connects to our sense of being. Like nature,
there is rhythm and there is balance, the flowing water balances the rigidity of the trees. In sculpture, I'm interested
in creating a sense of movement, where a three dimensional object creates a sense of energy and engagement with
the viewer. Symmetries in nature and the way nature adapts its structures to its environment also influence my
forms.

Artwork 1 Commentary: The figures have a humanistic element and social context to them. They have a strong sense
of design influenced by the pyramid; their power is that the figures convey a relationship between the two figures
and their strength is through the unity of one supporting the other. The figures balance precariously on their hands
and on their front of their feet, but adapt to their environment through balancing forms and the support they give
each other. My own moral relates to its title, that as in nature its power is about balance and supporting one
another.

Artist Statement: Since 2012, my work has focused on that unripe phase of human
life when the sexes are still undefined and where sexuality is still unexpressed. The
melancholy and reflective characters I portray are experiencing the often difficult and painful
transition from childhood games and innocence to the first upsets of adolescent and adult
age.
I consider it the perfect fusion between my two passions, painting and yoga, as the kind of
androgynous figure that fascinates me can be found in the Indian tradition with the God
Shiva and his bride Parvati, a united couple that forms the being known as
"Ardhanarishvara," the union between the opposites, the masculine and the feminine, the
sun and the moon. Having reconciled my two key passions, I like to describe the practice of
yoga as an art form, and painting as a sort of discipline and meditation.

Artwork 1 Title: 12 Celestial Months
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 100 x 58.5 x 3 (x 12 Polytych)
Artwork 1 Medium: Photography
Artwork 1 Commentary: The series consists of large-scale photographs of twelve flowers, each attributed to a sign of
the zodiac. 12 Celestial Months was incepted while
the artist spent a winter in Finland, researching the Astrology, Symbolism and mythology of the Zodiac.
The flowers are fake; sprayed with glow-in-the-dark pigment, then photographed, they play with ideas of what is real
and what is not; they seem to
glow but do not, they seem real but are not. This sense of artifice, of nature, and of beauty, is at the heart of the
work, and of the artist’s practice.
The green flowers are suspended in blackness, eerily lit. The works, as with much of Stamp’s practice, reflect
issues at the heart of image making,
asking questions of the importance of beauty, the fallacies of the real, and The enduring, dreamlike appeal of the
unreal.

In 12 Celestial Months, Stamp took as a starting point the birth sign flowers, and the wider symbolism stemming
from a ritualisation of personality
within mainstream society. The signs of the zodiac oversimplify and standardise individuality; the zodiac therefore
represents a repression, as well
as a celebration, of the self, a containment and classification of ones own internal structure of how we reflect
ourselves in signs and symbols the
are held to represent characteristic modes of expression. The flowers, in their delicacy, question a prettification of
conformity. There is
a ghostly nature, a veiled threat, to their beauty of seemingly unknowing plants in green aura. The mysticalness of
the zodiac is held through the
spacial effect of Shaun Stamps Photography.

Artist Statement: At the heart of my work, there is an intimate and personal tale about the social and spiritual
aspects of daily life and which, inevitably, turn into experience. All are filtered and re-elaborated trough my body.

Death, pain and time are frequent topics that emerge and that attempt to be a stimulus, a starting point for a
reflection on the meaning of our existence. I lost my father when I was 16 and 16 years later I lost my mother too. In
my work, I try to tell about emptiness, lack and of his care, his reborn. I try to rework the grief and wounds
experienced.

I studied sculpture, but the creative process also manifests itself through different artistic expressions: from
installations to jewelry, from clothing to painting, from embroidery to video clips, from sculpture to performance.

Depending on the project, I choose the material best suited for its development, though I have a special liking for
thread (cotton and doilies) and for the earth (ceramic), two archetypal elements that express a female feeling of
patience and dedication. To these materials, I combine body elements with photographs or anatomical drawings.

Softness and hardness, delicateness and strength are elements that alternate one with the other, grazing each other
and forming a contrast that expresses the essence of each human being. The cotton threads stretching across the
surfaces (ceramic, paper or canvas) move the thought from one end to the other, making one think about bonds
between objects and between people.

Artwork 1 Commentary: Zaffo (from the Italian dictionary): gauze pad to be inserted and crammed into a natural
cavity (nose, womb), into an operative breach or wound, for hemostatic purposes or to control scarring in the
healing process.

How do you feel when a person that you love dies?


How do you describe the pain?

Zaffo is an awareness, a point of view, an embroidered emptiness. I tried to treat a wound, to cover an absence, but
it's impossible.

Zaffo is also a reborn, a hug for your heart, a lesson because you can learn a lot from your pain. The cotton yarn is
time and care for ourself.
Is also my mother’s memory: she taught me to make doilies during her last life months.

The doily allows to see the photos through the yarn: a belly button and a breast, the remind to femininity, to mum
and the first relationship that we have in our life.
Two body parts very important to feed.

Food for body and soul.


So there this is an intimate relationship.
So there this is what we lose with death.

“I sit at the confluence between painting, drawing, video and performance installation, letting them mingle and
intertwine. My work is cathartic, explosive and colourful. I create paintings using translucent layers of varnish, oil
paint and ink to create visceral body-like abstract forms. A painting to me is not only an image but a physical material
object, which embodies traces of its process of production. I take a performative approach to making work, exploring
the relationship between psycho-geographical landscapes and the imagination. I am interested in the physical and
subjective notions of a journey - a journey perhaps through an internal landscape, through a memory; hand in hand
with the meandering, nomadic and sometimes volatile identity―

As the morning sun rises above the Gulf of Mexico Coastline, animals start to stir, birds start to sing and damselflies
become active. They are one of the first invertebrates to wake in the morning, darting from reed to reed, warming
themselves in the welcoming sun. I spend many sunrises in gulf marshes, surrounded by reeds and water, respecting
and admiring the animals that call these unique ecosystems home. One morning, as I was testing out natural lighting
techniques, a beautiful, large and calm damselfly approached. I did not miss the opportunity. I worked with the
insect until I was able to create this picture at a decent angle, standing in between reeds, hovering the camera just
above water. producing a strong silhouette of a damselfly against the welcoming warmth of the sun.

Sławomir Mrożek

I am an observer. Through digital and analogue photography, still and moving images, I explore the potential ground
that exists between fine art and documentary photography. Drawing inspiration from various conditions of the
reality around me, from the great interest in the modern, dynamic art scene but also from my personal experiences,
I believe in the power of images to convey the emotions, truths and challenges of modern reality. Having spent the
majority of my life away from my motherland, I often return to the theme of homesickness and belonging in my
artwork.

My approach to picture making is to present ordinary, non-idealised, never staged reality. Such practice is the
formulation of interest in things as they are. By using only one lens which is the most similar to a human field of
view, I am capturing the moments and non-moments that drag my attention. I am a sentimental and nostalgic artist
and the camera is the best tool to anchor oneself to memories and emotions that are constantly fleeting.

My work starts with a strong interest in the moment, light or a situation. The process of looking begins before taking
a photograph and continues afterwards. Selecting pictures, printing, making connections, framing or setting up an
exhibition space, all of it seems connected to the way of seeing. I immerse myself in the medium fully and utterly.

Artwork 1 Title: Sam & James' Wedding Renewal
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 80x55
Artwork 1 Medium: photography, digital print on Silver Gloss Museum paper
Artwork 1 Commentary: CELEBRATION is a project that came to live naturally or even surprisingly during my third-
year of study at the Glasgow School of Art when I have been working a lot as an event photographer to support my
art career.

As I have been busy with events, I had no time to make a project for a group exhibition. Instead, I thought I would
search through my hard drive and commercial shots and try to find at least one good picture I could print for the
show. When searching for that one photograph I’ve noticed something quite interesting. I was capturing the
moments that were not really about celebrating the events themselves. The function room corners, where no one is
dancing became almost like an empty theatre sets and the feeling that if I would just slightly move my camera I
would capture a big group of people dancing or eating, was something that fascinates me about photography. The
ability to present the situation within one frame, with no sound, with no description of what’s happening next to
it. Just one frame, for the viewer’s imagination, to make a story of the moment. I’ve been noticing that while
taking pictures of kids during the big events, like the photographs of a girl lying down next to the buffet – taken on
her parent’s wedding renewal. But these photographs were not showing kids having fun or dancing, but escaping
into their own fantasy, careless, doing whatever they want to do.

Artist Statement: Sophie Goudman-Peachey, was born in 1994 and lives and works in London. Her work combines
practices of painting, collage and printmaking to reconstruct existing narratives surrounding womxn in society. Her
collective body of work is all about womxn owning and reclaiming their strength and power whilst also revealing
their vulnerability, femininity, androgyny and masculinity. Her work aims to turn the patriarchal narrative on its head
by empowering womxn through intersectional politics of identity, race and sexuality and allowing space for womxn
to be whoever they want.

Artwork 1 Title: Pampered
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 40x40x5
Artwork 1 Medium: Acrylic paint, charcoal and paper collage on reclaimed wood
Artwork 1 Commentary: This work is part of a series focusing on reclaiming the female nude and confronting the
male gaze. The juxtaposition of paint and collage creates a conversation between traditional and digital media.
Symbolising our influences in modern culture from both the traditions of the past alongside the evolving impact
social media has on our society. Most portrayals of women we see in the traditional art world objectify the female
body and these women are usually of a similar race and body type. Through my paintings I want to break down these
barriers and represent all women. I often like to use vibrant colours in my work to reflect a positive narrative and
impose a feeling of empowerment on those viewing the work.

Artist Statement: I practice social art - art that seeks to reveal, understand and maybe transform our culture and
society. Social art references socially engaged, activist and political art. It might come from community action, or it
might be the product of single artist. .

Art includes any human action that we call art, from painting to performance, in any setting, from the street to the
gallery.

I make art in my studio as a direct output from my ‘being’. Some might be decorative. Some, like my cartoons,
is obviously social. Some need a label, or a short text, to describe how they reveal an aspect of culture as I see it.

Social art does not exist in isolation; it needs to engage with society. I can do this through showing art in a gallery.
But this restricts audience and response: the art can be seen as telling people what to think.

So I make art that involves the public, through participative art ‘happenings’ (Europa Promenade, Drone
Shadow, Peace Picnic, Liminal). When audience merges with artist, the boundary between subject and object breaks
down, and we can investigate the Real (what lies beneath the apparent reality of our consensual social construct).

Artwork 1 Title: Europa Promenade
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 200 x 200 x 100
Artwork 1 Medium: Withy and Tissue Lantern
Artwork 1 Commentary: As UK parliament debated the Brexit Bill on 15 January 2019, I promenaded my sculptural
creation ‘Europa’ around Brighton. Europa is ‘lantern’ sculpture made from willow and tissue paper.

My sculpture Europa is all about relationship. Europa could let go of the Bull’s horn, but she chooses not to. If she
let go, if she chose to break her bond with Bull, yes, she would be free, but then she would have to walk, instead of
floating in the air above her magical bull.

Europa is an interpretation of the Greek Myth about the founding of Europe. Europa was a child of Phoenicia. The
king of the gods, Zeus, fell in love with Europa, but she rejected his advances. He returned in the form of a white bull,
whom she fell in love with. They ran off across the sea, become lovers, and found a new home they called Europe.
Some called it abduction; others said they eloped.

While making this I reflected on sovereignty. What one gains when combining into a greater whole, what one loses.
For me, the most important thing to remember about the EU is that it has promoted peace in Europe since 1945.
Trade and freedom of movement and human rights are bonuses.

Artist Statement: As an information designer by trade, I am always eager to find ways of combining my love for my
day job with my passion for fine art.

One of the exciting things about forming this relationship is how different each of my styles are in each industry.
Within data design, all presentation revolves around the sharp, linear, vector-based constructs, however I believe my
general painting style to be far more expressive and emotionally driven. Yet this very contrast is what I believe
makes such an exciting partnership when teamed together, opposites attract after all don't they?

My main focus centres around abstract portraiture, and finding ways to illustrate the complexity of someone's
personality, without drawing from initial subconscious assumptions after our first glance at a person's face. To do
this, I shield the audience from this first judgement and allow the formation of triangular shapes to dictate the
viewer.

The colours used, size and layout of the triangles only offer a subtle glimpse into the subject's facial appearance, the
rest is an ambiguous representation, to be interpreted in whichever way the colours and shapes on the face dictate
your train of thought.

Is the subject sad? Happy? Lonely? Remorseful? There is no right answer, apart from the emotion an individual
instinctively feels when looking at the portrait. You could argue every person who looks at the painting will have a
personal relationship, as each perspective will be unique, and not one of them will be wrong.

Artwork 1 Title: Brenda
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 70cm x 50cm
Artwork 1 Medium: Acrylic
Artwork 1 Commentary: Brenda is an example of one of the pieces from my abstract portraiture series.

For reasons explained in my artists statement, Brenda's facial features have been blocked, however, clues have been
left in the form of geometric shapes that layer the face, their layout, colour, and size are all subtle glimpses in which
we can to feel her true identity bleed through.

I named her Brenda, as a contradiction to the vibrant, youthful colours used for the palette. Is she an elderly lady, or
a young lady? Even I'm not sure to be honest.

Artist Statement: Ein Teil meiner Arbeiten setzt sich mit Erinnerungen auseinander, die stattgefunden haben oder
assoziativ Brücken bauen zu Bildern, die damit einhergehen.

Was ist geschehen und was davon ist wirklich wahr? Inwieweit fungiert die Bildsymbolik, um mögliche oder reale
Ereignisse heraufzubeschwören (positiv formuliert: Die Bildsymbolik fungiert als Wegbereiter, um mögliche oder
reale Geschehnisse heraufzubeschwören oder zu vergessen)?

Die Geschichten beginnen in der Vergangenheit, werden gegenwärtig im Bild und lassen einen möglichen
Ausgang offen.

Meine Bilder sollen nichts anderes sein, als das was sie sind: unprätentiös und puristisch.

Leitmotiv ist die leidenschaftliche Auseinandersetzung mit Inhalten, die in ihrer atmosphärischen Mehrdeutigkeit
dennoch klar bleiben.

In allem, was ich sehe und überall wo ich bin sehe ich Details und Accessoires, die Geschichten erlauben: Innere
Wanderschaft auf Abwegen.

Aus einem anderen Blick die Dinge zu sehen und sich mitzuteilen. Ich sehe was da ist, was es gibt und danach sieht

Artist Statement: My latest works are inspired by the graciousness and inner light of the athlete's body postures as
captured by old Soviet sport photographs. They look very pure and clean almost "iconic" as sport was a Religion
during Soviet era and an only one possible as traditional religions were banned. The cult of a beautiful sporty body is
stressed by the use of golden leaf on the background, just like gold is traditionally used to paint icons. When looking
at such pictures we subconsciously associate ourselves with the athlete and get inspired in our ambitious pursuit of
beautiful longevity made possible by constant physical exercise. In all times we admired beauty and grace, that is
why today's athletes or beautiful people are among the most followed and almost "worshipped" on Instagram or
Facebook or any other social network..

Artist Name: Regan Boyce


Website: reganboyce.co.uk
IG: https://www.instagram.com/regan.boyce/

Artist Statement: Large geometric & abstract constructions as well as installations and print work make up the basis
of my current practice. The defining concept is ‘flat-pack’ sculptural objects involving the design, production
and installation of bespoke flat-pack sculptures.
The most recent production of flat-pack sculpture ‘IKOSAEDER’ displays the conceptual ideas I am exploring:
alongside the sculpture flat-pack instruction manuals, hand crafted crates and various screen-prints. Illustrated
screen-printed manuals and art prints depict scenes of installations.
Finding inspiration in minimalism, I have embraced the use of white gallery space. Rather than solely relying on a
location for circumstantial relevance (like my previous sculptural series) I have begun to explore the subversion of
function while creating context not through the space they exist in but through the objects relationships to one
another. Thus creating a contextual narrative through the combined presence of multiple objects and parts. Using
seemingly functional parts, instructions and storage to build what is in fact a completely functionless object and
therefore a pointless flat-pack outside of an art context.
As well as ‘flat-pack art objects’, recent developments have led to the creation of abstract minimalist forms
which lack any comparability to real-life function or objects. Aluminum tubing replicates spontaneously drawn lines
and shapes, moving flat drawings into a 3 dimensional space. Tube bends alongside panels of wood and coloured
fabric, imitating forms of structure. Numerous sculptural parts act closely in installed space linked only through the
architecture of the space.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 2000 x 5000 x 7000
Artwork 1 Medium: aluminium and armature wire flat-pack structure, wood crates. screen printed packaging, prints
and flat-pack manuals. paint and tape, LED lighting
Artwork 1 Commentary: IKOSAEDER is an exploration into the idea of a 'flat-pack' art work. Taking a format
associated with furniture and design and applying it to a sculptural art installation. A structure created from custom
made components, which fit packed into the associated crates present in the install complete with flat-pack
instruction manuals.
The work aims to take a new view point on the association and differentiation between art object and design. As the
works components and designed objects allude to being 'functional' but only form an object which has no
functionality outside of a fine art environment.

Artist Name: Xiuching Tsay

IG: chyvenne

Artist Statement: Xiuching Tsay is a Thai born painter, currently studying MA Painting at Royal College of Art. Water
opens up her infinite imaginations; its tumultuous movement affects xiuching’s emotions and introduces her the
other spiritual selves. Then, she uses what water offer, in creating an exotic realm, where her other selves can roam
around without acknowledging true existence. She believes that a failure of finding self-existence can also be a
fortunate thing, it let her continue the journey of a never-ending discovery of ‘I’. Therefore, she treats painting
as a journey to the sea.

While her boat (mind) is sailing aimlessly, depending on the unpredictable waves, She finds many fragmented
objects that remind her of life experiences back, in reality, they are floating or sometimes sinking. But those objects
in the paintings become more emotional than one in reality, as they are revitalized by the sea moods, the sun and
the moon. This means the banal objects are transitioned into unknown beings who rove around in transcendent
landscapes.

The most important is that those spirited objects are uncertain in their forms. A split-second after they are seen by
her, the objects are washed off or melted by water. To her, their existences have never been recognized, there are
restless spirits like monstrous fishes.

Artist Statement: I am an emerging visual artist and my area of


interest is visual perception. My work, through experiential and participatory artworks, is an exploration of sight and
vision which is centred on the act of looking. I invite the viewer to observe the world around them and consider how
they see that world. My objective is to engage the viewer in a dialogue with the work to explore the vulnerability of
their sight. Looking does not just utilise
our eyes, it also engages our mind and body. My previous work, entitled “Without a perceiver, there is no

Artwork 1 Title: Without a perceiver, there is no horizon
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 6 ft x 4ft
Artwork 1 Medium: Installation
Artwork 1 Commentary: My work, entitled “Without a perceiver, there is no horizon― was situated at a public
beach on Sherkin Island, West Cork in May 2018. The work consists of an adapted garden shed which has a selection
of optical lenses suspended on the back wall. The viewer engages their body as well as their eyes to adjust to see the
outside world through the lenses. Designed to be situated outdoors, the lenses move and shift with the environment
adding a challenge to the viewer to observe the outside. It was originally installed overlooking Silver Strand, Sherkin
Island incorporating the horizon and the surrounding environment. The work is designed for curious people to
explore and experience the shed creating an experiential space where the embodiment of the viewer in the space is
paramount. Facing the horizon, the viewer engages with their environment and the phenomenogical horizon
through the lenses. The concept of verticon was also explored in the situated context.

Artist Statement: Originally trained as an architect at Cambridge University, my paintings and drawings are inspired
by modernist architecture and my own thoughts, dreams and memories. Sometimes vague, sometimes specific -
recurring rather than transitory. The ones that keep ticking away inside. Common themes are utopian dreams,
repetition, power, hierarchy and aggression. I construct and express this permanent, private interior of thoughts as a
public, external, abstracted architectural space - sometimes the subject is directly about architecture and the city
itself, sometimes very personal, sometimes both together.

Each piece starts as a small, rough, spontaneous sketch. I later select from these to create a larger work and develop
my ideas through a design process that involves further investigative studies, technical drawings and computer aided
design. The final work is very close in spirit to the original sketch. I play with symmetry and asymmetry, and mixing
different architectural representations of space – perspective, elevation and 3D projections such as axonometric
and isometric.

In my work, whether on canvas, paper or on screen I try to offer a contemplative convergence of the mind and the
physical world.

Artist Statement: I was born in 1975 in the north of France. I was a soldier, a clothing salesman, a management
consultant, a lecturer, a construction worker, a scholl principal… I never stopped creating during all this time. I
wrote three novels, plays of theater, poems and I participated in various artistic projects. But my main activity is the
artistic collage which represents for me an unlimited field of possibilities.

My paintings have several degrees of reading. They hide references, messages, a particular composition. I am
marked and I try to sublimate the sorrows that haunt me in my works. Like the models that have always guided me, I
join them in a kind of counterculture, a critical transition from a system that I too often find unfair and incoherent. I
try to participate in this dialectic by a new graphic imagery, full of meaning and feelings.

Artist Statement: My work is inspired by history, all sorts of history as well as stories. I have a questing mind, and a
rich imagination

I admire courage and I am moved by weakness and hardship.

I paint my version of history; not the way it happened, but how I imagine it could have happened. I was not there so I
create the past in my own imagination. Who am I to judge what happened in the past? I was not there present, so I
paint the story as my mind imagines it.

I like to paint in bold right colours. I like to challenge and confront. Life is full of mysteries, who am I to judge but to
comment? Painting is my therapy, an expression of my world view. In times of great emotion, painting frees my soul.

I get excited by a blank canvas, who knows what stories it holds for me. How will this end? How will it begin? What
adventures will it drag me into?

​

My brush has a mind of its own. I create the images it wills me to. My hand and brush work as one, in conspiracy
against my imagination and my plans.

​I conceive a painting and plan, but the result is a stranger to me. This leads me to discover my own work the way
you do and stare in amazement at the story before me.

Painting is my writing and there is a lot to say.

Artist Statement: I create paintings that contemplate the fluidity of nature and mankind’s place within it. Our
perception of the world is limited, our existence appears finite, and life itself exists in a state of flux. I believe it is in
the light of these unstable realities that we go about creating systems, borders and frames in an attempt to feel
more secure. But these structures are not as solid as we might hope, they too are permeable to the flux.
Although science has shown us that even in apparent randomness, there are patterns and systems within nature,
our perspective does not always let us see the order through the chaos. It seems that modern society is cutting itself
off from the natural world more and more, putting its trust in technology, building more borders and making up
stricter rules- all out of a desire for a more stable reality. Surely, if you attempt to apply too much order and put
limits on that which you can not ultimately contain, you only ever create the illusion of stability, and illusions must
eventually be shattered. If we can not accept the fragile, turbulent aspects of what it means to be alive, there will
come a point when we are forced to surrender to them instead. In my work, I try to embody this complex
relationship we have with order and chaos, both through my painting process and with the imagery I draw upon.

Artwork 1 Title: Uncertain Times
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 61 x122 x0.5 unframed. 81 x 142 x 5 cm framed
Artwork 1 Medium: Oil and Acrylic on Aluminium
Artwork 1 Commentary: This painting uses a triptych to speak of how we choose to view nature, to
compartmentalise it, organise it- in order that we can feel more in control of it. We do this not only with the natural
landscape around us, but with all of life. But here in this painting the triptych is only semi-opaque, it sits within the
context of a more complex and fluid reality. Even as we create the boxes and put up borders, we have to eventually
acknowledge their permeability. None of our efforts to control life, to keep it steady, can withstand the inevitable
disruption from the chaotic element of life. The triptych is made up of three golden rectangles - a nod to the fact
that we seek out order in nature, we are comforted by the discovery of natural patterns and systems because they
indicate that life is not all chaos, there maybe a greater order.

This painting also references the anxiety our country is feeling these days, with what feels like a very 'uncertain'
political climate. The irony is that nothing is ever certain, nothing is ever fixed. Our physical and cultural landscape is
shifting and changing every second. It is good to celebrate the unique and beautiful elements of our country, but
there is a danger of holding on too tightly to an idealised version. We can not fight change, we must learn to live
with it, and ideally to celebrate the part it has to play.

Artist Statement: Like a number of other megacities, Istanbul, where I was born and raised, has seen its character
transformed by major demographic change and an unquenchable thirst for modernisation. The dread of seeing this
change steadily erase the essence of a grand old city is the main source of inspiration for my work.

In order to understand the characteristics of these cities, I began to form a collection of images. These ranged from
industrial areas to abandoned, desert-like landscapes, but also the ruins of buildings succumbing to time, man or
nature and stories of over-production and over-consumption.

These images occupy me constantly and are eventually poured into drawings or paintings, where they are
transformed into ambiguous, abstract forms. In trying to understand the degeneration, modernity and contrasts of
today’s world, my work is centred on the gradual transformation of these forms and, ultimately, their remnants.

Artwork 1 Commentary:
Artwork 'Waiting' taken from ongoing personal project 'Daughter'.

After being stunned by the birth of my daughter, just over 11 years ago, I lost all of my desire to be creative, and felt
like I had lost a part of my identity that I had always known.

This void was now filled with the overwhelming and dominating sense of undying love for this tiny new being. The
fake and the contrived world that I had lived in before now meant nothing to me. and I no longer wanted to be part
of it.

In 2017, as my daughter entered her 10th year, I discovered a yearning and a strong desire to create - but this time
not to fit into a box, not to contrive, to impress or to conform to anyone, but just simply to create just for me.

This is how project 'Daughter' was born.

Up until now, we have had a rocky relationship - becoming used to each others moods and emotions and excepting
who we are as individuals. 'Daughter' explores how I see my daughter. and how reachable and yet unreachable she
can be at the same time - when I catch her intense gaze - how I know I will never truly know her inner thoughts -
they belong to her and not to me - how the moments of mundane day to day life have become captured snatches of
time that have a thousand things to say, but without any words.

Artist Statement: I am interested in the environment and the way we view and experience it. My work is informed by
the urban and rural landscape and ideas of utopia, dystopia and the sublime. I create work exploring reality within
environments and our relationship with them. I am intrigued by places and spaces that exist within our lives and
ideas around natural disasters, climate change and current social and political issues. I use a wide range of
contemporary and traditional painting and drawing media from oil paint and mediums to household paint and spray
paint, working the paint surface of the canvas flat on the floor or on the wall. My work explores our relationships
and connections with the landscape and how this is consistently in flux. My process varies and evolves over time but
generally starts with drawings, images and collages that I have manipulated and experimented with using
photocopying. We are increasingly disconnected from our environment due to technological advancement and in a
consistent conflict with the natural world due to the way we live. I approach my work with these ideas and thoughts
with the hope that they gain traction in the spaces in the work. The human presence is missing from my paintings
enabling the viewer to become the missing human presence within the work, the spaces becoming portals that the
viewer has to negotiate into another world, space or time.

Artist Statement: I work with such rather classical artistic practices as painting and graphics, balancing the
boundaries between the abstract and plot lines of contemplation of natural landscapes and everyday situations. As
an expert in conservation of painting, I have a deep understanding of the essence of the material with which I work,
and I use his possibilities in his works. I strive for the expressiveness and self-sufficiency of form and color, in turn
leaving it possible for the viewer's interpretation.
I often experiment and observe the process, introducing in my painting elements of the drawing, graphics or even
prints. I'm experimenting with the basics and material, combining various techniques, or just spreading the paint
exploring the boundaries of self-expression.

Artwork 1 Title: 48°23'11.8N 24°27'34.9E
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 150 x 163
Artwork 1 Medium: Ink, potal silver, paper
Artwork 1 Commentary: The "golden mean" is calculated on the basis of the extreme points. But what if these
extreme points are too far apart? Is the simple arithmetic mean to be a "golden mean" or a "compromise," or is not
it?
Around these issues concentrated and combined work in the series"Antipodes, balance, walk on the golden line", is
a series of graphic works inspired by wanderers. The plot balances between the landscape and the abstract vision of
a particular location. The names of works, in fact, are not random numbers, but the geographical latitude and
longitude of the place where the work was created.
On the other hand, this project is a self-study. For a long time, my dominant practice is an experiment with painting,
accompanied by a technological specificity of the material. Graphics are my new interest, more mobile, in my own
texture, which allows you to deeply explore the boundaries of expressiveness and abstraction of the image at the
same time.

Artist Statement: Emilie’s practice combines sculpture and furniture design to produce pieces that are both
functional and aesthetic.Â
From the human body to the colours and textures of Mediterranean France, her work references the familiar as she
seeks inspiration in her everyday surroundings. The playful functional sculptures of animals and vegetation by
Francois Xavier and Claude Lalanne as well as the naive and bulbous forms of Niki de Saint Phalle have been
formative influences.
Her recent project, Take a Seat (2018), is a collection of ceramic stools that have been inspired by food. Her
renderings of the shape and feel of foods including clotted cream, pomegranates, scotch bonnets, sugar cubes and
banana leaves playfully explores the dynamic between function and art.

Born in London, Emilie Coste graduated from Central St Martins in 2018, with a degree in Ceramic Design. She
currently lives and works in London.

Artwork 1 Title: Blue Metabolism
Artwork 1 Dimensions: Seat : 60 x 54 cm Full height: 91 x 54 cm
Artwork 1 Medium: Ceramic Seat with Silk Cushion
Artwork 1 Commentary: Blue Metabolism, the sculptural ceramic seat, truly exemplifies Emilie’s work process.
Emilie discovered this tubular technique through the early stages of her making process. Typically she pinches her
coils together to form a structure and then manipulates it by smoothing it out to create her desired form. However,
it was the unfinished crudeness of the thick and curvaceous coils, combined with the tactility they offered that most
appealed to her. Emilie intends to give the user this tactile desire to squeeze and grab the bursting tubular lumps,
creating the urge to to almost prevent them from popping out of place.

Blue Metabolism is the aftermath of Emilie’s previous collection called ‘Take a Seat’ which was made of
ceramic stools based on a selection of ‘Foods’. We have now entered the digestive process of the food in the
body once it has been eaten. Emilie has attempted to capture a natural process that can be seen as quite repulsive,
but has instead translated it into something endearing and aesthetically pleasing to the viewers eye. The strong blue
versatile glaze is used to enhance the striking form of the seat. Whereas we all may be picky about the food we eat
.
We all have a metabolism. So why not sit on it ?

Artist Statement: Dear Art Lovers,

First of all, I would like to congratulate you for organising this event in a very professional way. This is a big
opportunity for those who create art.

I am a Bucharest, Romania based painter and my painting influency comes from family.
I feel painting since I was a child. I painted for my colleagues at school and later on, for expressing feelings in a
contemporary artwork.
I improved myself by self-taught and received private design and painting classes before and during University years.

I am working from my own studio and I try to generate joy, energy and responsiveness through my artwork.
Each oil canvas is original and represents a special moment in time, using unique color textures and my own
technique.

Thank you, Ashurst!

Artist Statement: My work is rooted in the power of nature and its healing qualities. Nature’s ability to consume
manmade objects is an endless source for my creativity.

I am particularly interested in manmade structures such as walls, pathways and roads which have begun to be
consumed by the natural environment. The growth of nature on surfaces such as bricks, cobbles and concrete
surfaces represents natures spread and growth. To me the process of growth and reclamation becomes a metaphor
for one’s own strength over adversity and our ability to heal.

Each piece of work I make can be part of a greater installation which can either stand alone as a sculptural form or
become part of a greater installation.

I work mainly with black stoneware clay to hand build sculptural forms which represent architectural manmade
structures and surfaces. I use glaze and colour to represent the growth of nature in my work.

Artist Statement: I am an abstract painter I work on canvas, linen, panels and paper. I work exclusively in oil paint on
thirty or so paintings and drawings at once and these vary in scale from intimate to large.
The studio is the place where practically everything happens for me occasionally diagrams from medical books or
photographs I have taken may inform the work in its formative stages, but essentially my work emerges from the
physical process of painting.
Loose oily wounds and thick emulsions offset light glazes and dribbles, I paint, wipe out, paint over, turn the
canvasses around, print, blot, mask, pour paint, scrape and scratch.
Irregular canvases, panels and paper litter my studio walls and tables. I shift from one piece to another and don’t
focus on completion, just nudging a painting from one position to another.
Only when I am in the studio standing in front of the work do they being to take form, I give them room to develop
meaning to be here in the world. I am in there almost every day and there is little thought process outside of the
studio.
The works are sometimes not touched for weeks or months, which offers an incubation time to contemplate where I
want them to go, them to take me or if they become complete.
In contrast to my sometime emotive imagery, banal solitary words form my titles, tempering and balancing the
melancholy character of my work.

Artist Name: Josh Carter


Website: https://joshcart96.wixsite.com/joshcartart
IG: https://www.instagram.com/josh_cart_art/

Artist Statement: I’m a sculptural artist whose practice centres around the use of readily available materials
sourced from the building trade that I put through a process of casting that embraces imperfection and the point
where accidents happen. This produces artefacts that reference both our constructed environment and bodily
elements, while also reflecting their process of creation through the marks on their surface and the form they end up
settling in. I maintain a process-based practice and I tend to handle my materials as little as possible because leaving
the material bare to the processes of casting and carving give the object autonomy as we cooperate to find a
finished form. I think that an object made by two minds working together, mine and the object’s, will arrive at a
more natural conclusion for material and form as the process marries the two. My practice tends to leave objects
bare to emphasise their materiality and denounce any pretence to the audience that they are anything more than
cement, metal and other basic materials – no tricks, yes, the material really can do that. As the viewer sees that it
is just cement, for example, I hope that it will highlight their weight and present-ness in that space in a way that
grounds them, not as a far-flung art-object but, as a real, tangible and spatially disruptive force.

Artwork 1 Title: Metope
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 180cm x 270cm x 90cm
Artwork 1 Medium: Cement, Steel
Artwork 1 Commentary: Metope is the result of two things; research on the sculptures from the Parthenon and a
need to lift my work off the floor in a way that pushes it into a shared space with the viewer. As the work imposes
upon the space typically solely occupied the viewer, a natural reaction would be prompted from them as they’re
faced with this physical, heavy object. The work has a historical context because I based its presentation on how the
British museum displays its sculptures around a standardised framework; such context is emphasised by the bulging
forms and cast creases referencing that of ancient carved statues while also manifesting themselves in a similar state
of ruin as if the objects have been caught in a time paradox making them a sort of contemporary relic.

Artist Statement: Since returning to the UK after living in the Italian countryside for 12 years I have had what one
might call a revelation. My work has revolted. The abstracts have been replaced by a more urban and lively output.
And it's becoming increasingly varied. I work across a number of themes concurrently. My recent work has been
centered around history, place and politics with works about war and our little boy soldier Kim Jong Un.

Throughout 2018 I have been making a series of works about the effect of the First World War on our society, for
good and ill, in the hundred years that has followed. The emancipation of women, the proliferation of
megalomaniacs, the beginning of the technological age and so on. The culmination was an exhibition “Repeat
After Me― which opened at Armistice weekend.

Generally I work in mixed media including collage on canvas and on paper. Most works have some element of
printmaking or transference. I am continually drawn to mark making in this way as it provides a separation between
me and the subject which seems to enable a sedimented idea to come to the the fore subconsciously.

time sound took to travel from one point to another which was then used to calculate the distance of enemy fire.

“And The Birds Began To Sing― is a response to a recording I heard of the final guns firing at the end of the war.
When the they ceased there was the briefest of silences then, amazingly, after all that destruction... there was
birdsong.

Website: www.gerardcarson.tumblr.com
IG: https://www.instagram.com/gerard_carson87/

Artist Statement: My practice is concerned with objects, not as wholes which carry distinct meanings or symbolic
weight, but that they are congregating assemblages of matter that flow through one another. However these
assemblages become sources of accelerated techno-scientific production, meshing through networked
infrastructures, mutating into strange actors, imbued with occulted energies that displace seemingly settled
'knowns', rendering them with unknown agencies that collapse into spiralling ecologies.

My work manifests via my interest in research into speculative/science fiction, where the
political/social/technological/ecological conditions of the present are projected into very possible scenarios. Within
the context of multiple ecological crises, and their effects/affects, I produce sculptural works that follow a similar
mode of speculation, whereby the use of materials such as concrete, jesmonite, thermoplastics, have effects and
applications that exist in a material continuum. In my work, this concept is expressed by featuring characteristics of
cybernetic production (hooks, claws, tubing), forms of capture, and points of articulation. Objects appear caught
within these sculptural networks, yet also project beyond their material circumstance, into a reoriented, but
indeterminate, future.

Artist Statement: Thomas Merrett is a London based sculptor. He originally trained at City and Guilds of London Art
School before working with a number of sculptors and carvers working on a number of architectural commissions
throughout the UK. After receiving a scholarship from the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST) Thomas moved
to Italy to study from the live figure in Florence. Whilst there he had the opportunity to enhance his skills in drawing
and modelling of the human form.
Thomas begins all his work with drawing and then clay, which he finds the best medium for developing ideas for his
sculpture before converting them in to the more permanent materials of bronze, plaster or stone. He has exhibited
several times with the society of portrait sculptors and was selected to became a member of the society in 2017. He
was awarded the Founders Sculpture Prize by the Worshipful Company of Founders in 2016. Thomas teaches
drawing and carving part-time at City & Guilds of London Art School.
Through his work Thomas aims to creates a unique interpretation of the the subject in front of him rather than just a
skilful replication of their likeness.

Artwork 1 Title: Flight
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 66x50x70 cm
Artwork 1 Medium: Coloured Resin
Artwork 1 Commentary: In 2016 I was awarded the Founders Sculpture Prize by the Worshipful Company of
Founders and commissioned to make a sculpture based on the set theme of 'Flight in terms of refugees'.

My aim was to create large abstract forms from certain views that represents a chaotic mass where the viewer will
glimpse the three figures emerging and disappearing in this 'chaos'. I intended this mass to have a wall-like quality to
symbolise a shifting boundary - impregnable from some views whilst being overcome in others. The piece
encourages the viewer to move around the sculpture and as they do the figures emerge from these forms to
represent the movement and flight of refugees.

The isolated figure describes a person in an unfamiliar place, stripped of possessions - material, emotional, familial -
this could also be a person left behind (the effects of flight), or an unaccompanied child. I have developed the
composition so that these multiple narratives come together in ways that from certain angles this figure is isolated
and removed from the other figures, offering an element of stillness to counter the movement in the rest of the
sculpture, yet from other standpoints you can glimpse the solitary figure through the wall like mass in a way that
connects all three figures together.

Artist Statement: In my body of work there is an assumed intention to appeal to our desire to inhabit and
experiment spaces manipulated by colour, an element than can be fascinating as much as intriguing. Colour is, in
fact, a fundamental composition element that interacts with the idea of the house, a primordial thematic and
conceptual element in my practice. In this process, the idea of utopia is always present, connecting with a fictional
and imaginary architecture that invades pictorial space. I seek to nullify the boundaries between painting and
architecture and painting wants to actually leave itself, assuming different forms of presentation and unfolding in
diverse materials and scales. With an accentuated geometric component, the canvases with different widths and
thicknesses, MDF structures, models and drawings with collage find in the colour and in the line fundamental
complementary elements, entering afterwards a process of aesthetic addition and subtraction.

concept of home and an alternative and seductive experiential context, connected to the idea of open air, green,
wood and freedom. Colour has a major role in the process of interaction between pictorial and architectural
languages and specificities, being determinant in our perception of depth, volume and illusion. There is a game
between the different supports, with different formats and thicknesses, that bring to painting a three-dimensional
thought connected with the chromatic relations.

Artist Statement: During the last few years, my practice has been focused on the concepts of memory, time and the
relation between human beings and the space around them.
These invisible measures influence our lives strongly. Time and space are the two main coordinates of a memory:
something happened in a given time and in a given space. However, memory can undermine these two cardinal
points: often we think that we have a perfect remembrance of the shape of an object when on the contrary we keep
only a general ‘sensation’ of it.
My practical research has always been interested in exploring traditional techniques and materials – such as
casting, moulding, wax, plaster, wood and analogue photography among others – as well as new ones – like
photogrammetry, 3D mapping, 3D printing - and in pushing their limits in order to create a dialogue with my
theoretical research.
Starting from these ground concepts, I recently investigated the idea of the archive in contemporaneity and how it
influences patterns that we use to store memories.
Moreover, my research has been recently concerned about the artefacts’ selection process behind archives and
collections – repository places of our collective memory – and who is that operated by on one side, and how
different meanings of recording memories – images, text, art - influence what we remember and how we
remember it.
At the moment, I aim to investigate the role of images in our memory processes both as individuals and as a
community, keeping in mind the work of Aby Warburg in particular.

Artist Statement: My current creative research is a lot about the material I use, and it’s potential in making iconic,
symbolic, sign-like sculptures. The mesh is a barrier that separates safe space form unsafe space. In a way it is like
cloth, separating a private space form the world at large. It is a liminal material, a barrier between one world and
another. It is a ubiquitous industrial safety product that proliferates in the building, demolition, and urban and
suburban renewal of New Zealand at present. The signs and symbols that I have been exploring are of housing,
containing, dividing, and linking to the function of the material in its everyday function of being a barrier.
The material itself has meaning: it is, a barrier between one world and another, the bright orange signals one area of
life that is legislated safe, and another legislated as dangerous, and only accessible to the “specialist―. This
liminality of the mesh is heightened by its open weave, being virtually no substance, but its colour and its
connotations are powerful and unmistakable; until it is taken into making works that glow with orange radiance.
They describe real world things and spaces in a symbolic manner, but made in a Process, or Minimalist, “no-
form― way of object making. The material allows a trace, or an index of its function to be present in the work, as
well as the symbolic concepts inherent in the signs, houses, animals, trees, and people that are the subject of the
pieces.

Artist Statement: I like to position the body as the primary site of our libidinal energy. This corporeal sensuality
allows us to reconnect with visceral sensations. In a world dominated by social technology at the service of the
international market, we are being moulded into beings of wanting and needing. Our mind is being co-opted in order
for us to become unconscious and insatiable consumers. In the meantime, we are losing connection with our body.

To escape this intrusive and asphyxiating environment, I recreate a sensual ecosystem. For the sculptures, I use
veiny, wrinkly and bumpy materials to render a skin-like surface. Tights and support belts are used to tie the shapes
together in order to maintain the physical bond.

Meanwhile the paintings offer elements like drops, drips and bodily forms that propose a fluid (lost?) paradise which
palpitates, breathes, squirts and flows: an ecological and erotic sphere promoting a capacity for joy and the
recognition of the erotic as power.

Artist Statement: Kristina Okan is a visual artist, born in Russia in 1991. Lives and works in Berlin and Moscow.
Kristina Okan obtained her Master of Arts Degree from Stroganov`s Academy of Industrial and Applied Arts in
Moscow. In her ceramic works, she uses mainly porcelain clay preserving the whiteness and purity of the material
focusing on the sense of texture, translucent and opaque effect of the surface. While her drawings and graphic
artworks conjoin the complexity of colour interaction and transparency.
Abstract biomorphic shapes inspired by microcosmic creatures in Okan`s works are a bit of a Rorschach test for the
viewer, calling on the audience to print their own associations and meanings.

- " I make art that wakes up feelings and emotions, associations and fantasies, which is more covert, carrying some
secret and mystery. Art of associations and emotions enhanced by the perfection of its maker, the art that
doesn’t make you need to read annotation and description, shapes and forms that have a special and individual
meaning for each particular viewer…
For me, art is not just an object and concept – at first, it is a communication of a particular object with a particular
viewer. Their private dialogue. "

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 43x17x13 cm (full size of 3 objects)
Artwork 1 Medium: Sculpture/Glazed porcelain
Artwork 1 Commentary: My work is based on the rethinking of the visual relish for the classic still life paintings and
sculptures with its idolizing the world of objects and every particular detail, reflecting the inner condition and divine
beauty of nature. The body of the object as a repository of impressions, feelings, memories, information becomes a
conductor to the outside world.

The work is very tactile and unfolds the artist behind it.

Artist Statement: Mexican - Italian Architect and self-taught Artist. In 2006 I moved to Italy, leaving my profession as
an Architect. My creativity lead me initially to oil painting, which wasn’t enough to make me happy, since I
needed to touch materials. Having the need to invent, design and build, in 2016 intriged by the charm of aluminum, I
began to create works by transforming aluminum sheets into sculptures inspired by nature. My aluminum works are
camouflaged in the environment, taking the colors from nature as a reflection, they move with the wind, join the
sounds of nature with the raindrops, let themselves be caressed by the snowflakes and transmit light. With these
works I want to bring joy and light into any place and to anyone who owns them.

Artwork 1 Title: PAPALOTL
Artwork 1 Dimensions: height: 125 cm. length: 160 cm. 192 cm wingspan. Weight: 14.5 kg
Artwork 1 Medium: Papalotl is an Aluminum Sculpture The wings are made with 0.8 mm colorless mirror-hammered
aluminum sheets, with decorations in 0.5 mm colorless, gold, light smoke and dark smoke mirrored aluminum
sheets. The head is made with 0.5 mm gold-colored mirrore
Artwork 1 Commentary: Papalotl means butterfly in NÃ huatl, the language of the Aztecs. For whom it was the
symbol of the sun and the soul. Papalotl's head is yellow as the sunlight and has a shiny body, for the Aztecs
glimpsed their soul in the reflection of a mirror.
The butterfly has always been for all times and all people the symbol of rebirth, the ascension of the soul to heaven
and Papalotl represents, in its metallic look, that marvelous process of final transformation.
Papalotl is my tribute to the Monarch butterfly, loved by the Mexican people who every year witness the
extraordinary migration in millions of specimens from Canada. The Monarch can fly over 2000 km flaunting its
extraordinary resistance as Papalotl does, with its aluminum body and wings.
Its hollow body, symbolizes the lightness and fragility of the butterfly, which contrasts with the strength and
resistance of the aluminum, that bends with the wind without breaking and freeing itself in the sky, as the Aztecs
said as if it were a flying flower.

Artist Statement: Our expanding cities are in a state of flux, constantly being remade, and offered to us as an
idealised, global way of living to which we should all aspire. Throughout western economies, and increasingly in the
developing world, 21st Century urban life is dominated by environments which anthropologist Marc Auge identified
as the 'non-space'.
Typically these are places of transit and hospitality. For a few people they are monolithic corporate work spaces.
Non-spaces project an image of generic luxury which invite us to dream of what we might be...much as Dick
Whittington may have done?
My recent work uses steel, aluminium and plexiglass to build abstract structures correlating to city towers. It asks
whether the banal and sometimes dystopian tendencies of these buildings can be redressed by co-opting
photographic practices to impart a sense of the sublime.

Artwork 1 Title: Telling a New Storey
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 1456 x 570 x 40 mm
Artwork 1 Medium: 8 x prints on posijet film sandwiched in plexiglass, standoff fixings
Artwork 1 Commentary: This work is the culmination of research during a six week period on the Canary Wharf New
District Residency. It references the symbolically charged status of super modern architecture which has come to
represent our aspirations for a new life in the city. London, which was once a city of church and cathedral spires, is
now a forest of glass and steel skyscrapers. These are the epitome of an aspirational western lifestyle.
The piece comprises 8 prints which are photographed tableaux - comprising abstract architectural shaped sculptures
(made from steel and aluminium -the ubiquitous materials of supermodernism). Onto these are projected scenes of
Canary Wharf - which have then been re-photographed and printed on colour transparency. The heightened colour
(similar to stained glass) is the result of projection, there is very little post production other than cropping.
The presentation references the slick tools of the developers marketing materials.

Artist Statement: My mixed-media practice is a kind of applied environmental philosophy. I use textured and digital
elements to invoke a sense of wonder through a perception shift.

A recurring theme in my work is the bioindicator — “an organism used as an indicator of the quality of an
ecosystem, especially in terms of pollution― (Oxford Dictionary).

I am interested in interpreting the messages of bioindicators, such as lichen and algae, and relating that to our own
embodied experience of climate.

Being receptive to biological indicators goes hand in hand with the art of noticing. The act of exploring the local
lichens or algae becomes an art walk — a novel way to experience the landscape.

My Masters in Research at the Royal College of Art investigates how the breath can be instated as a bioindicator for
air quality. The breath is a shared medium; experiencing the breath as a life force leads to attunement with life
everywhere.

(I am a certified Yoga Instructor: embodied knowledge informs my practice as an art and design researcher.)

As a reflexive-practitioner, I believe that we need to tell more nuanced stories about “nature―, and that is
what I aim to do through my work.

Biological indicators should be recognised and respected by all, while the human experience of breathlessness in
polluted urban environments should not need scientific authorities to validate it – we can all be ecologists and we
are all ecology.

Artwork 1 Title: Saint Dunstan in the East
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 60 x 60 cm (artwork image is necessarily compressed)
Artwork 1 Medium: Light box
Artwork 1 Commentary: Saint Dunstan in the East induces a perception shift, which will be instrumental in an
upcoming workshop I am leading at Radical Landscapes exhibition.

We may initially perceive satellite imagery of Earth, yet we are actually looking at a manipulated photograph of algae
growing greenfully on ruins of the eponymous church in Central London.

The grounds of the church were left for ruins after the Blitz. Tiny organisms have probably thrived upon the exposed
surfaces ever since.

I am primarily interested in our connection with the organisms through the shared medium of atmosphere. These
undervalued instances of urban wildness are key "bioindicators" which testify to humanmade pollution.

Will we grow to embrace a new aesthetics of urban wildness which allows the spores of cryptogams to settle on our
buildings and pause for thought before we jet-wash them away?

Artist Statement: My work explores the different associations that images -still or moving-, text and sound can
trigger in us by recognising ourselves in them; or due to a connection created at the very first encounter with the
piece. This allows me to dig deep into the act of looking, the act of being a viewer and how certain images make us
ponder over time.
I record elements of my daily life and compile found imagery and footage that has previously been discarded or
devalued. These rituals have increasingly become the base of my creative process and a catalyst for my art practice.
Once a distinctive layer of this on-going archive has formed, I edit, structure and link its contents, focusing on
appropiationism techniques, associative aesthetics and the concept of remembrance.
I am interested in the creative process, how it develops and the multiple facets of how a project can be shown, as if
handling a polyhedron. My practice requires a period of unforced, reflective dormancy regarding ideas or images, to
slowly poach glimpses of what I love and inspires me: an image or text, a trip, nostalgia, empathy, humour, a song.
Ultimately, I find difficulties in categorisation. Or rather, I don't enjoy categorisation and I'd like to think of my
artistic approach as liminal or in-between disciplines, and therein hopefully lies my future work.

Artist Statement:
Hallidonto’s (Graeme Gerard Halliday) work relates to his “Cyborgia Manifesto― his main focus is drawing;
The essence of the cyborg became my own. The cyborg image has been an integral part of my childhood. The cold
war had just ended – the cultural landscape of the '80s, was very much rooted in the future, the inherent feeling
of that time was dystopia from the cartoons/films, I watched as a kid, the advent of console gaming: Nintendo, etc.
The image of man was always his metamorphism into the machine, or the machines taking over. I identified with the
cyborg image, I wanted to be one. I identified with the concept of such a being and it has informed my work to date.
They are infantile and simplistic in their appearance but not in their construction, being drawn in one continuous
line. My visual discourse is motivated by transcribing the sociological constructions of our age, the evolution of the
flesh its reflection of the coming state of mankind, flesh anxiety, the departure into a new being.

"Birth of the Cyborg"


This project is an amalgamation of 21st-century technology and traditional Art practice, thus embodying the classical
with contemporary technology. My signature style is a continuous line drawing: My practice is an exploration of the
cyborg, through my drawing process I build up the structure of my cyborgs, with eloquent fluid gestures, that give
birth to these organisms. Standard drawing practices have its limitations, the visual construction is confined to the
space (paper, wall) by releasing the lines too so to speak from a 2Dimensional plane- virtual reality opens up the
opportunity for me using my continuous line style in real time thus giving the drawings a tangible reality-the ability
to construct these works into sculptural pieces.

With the new relocation of the V&A to Here East alongside Hobs Studio and Plexal. Hallidonto was interviewed by
Ben Thompson from the BBC about my Residency with Hobs studio https://hobs3d.com/alongside Tech lead for

potential collaboration with Ai Build http://www.ai-build.com I want to push the boundaries of contemporary
drawing practice, with VR and robotic acting as the prosthesis. This Man-machine interface and the inclusion of the
robot acting as the 'creator' to give life to these organisms, what will VR, robotics, Ai hold for the Cyborg, what's next

From birth we are programmed to respond to other faces. Yet as we mature close proximity becomes socially
unacceptable. Always fascinated by the intimate view I place the subject confrontationally close. The face seen with
such immediacy can be absorbing, fascinating or disquieting, uncomfortable and even threatening.

IG: jupazutti

Artist Statement: I spent ten years of my life immersed in the world of fashion as a fashion designer for a major
Brazilian clothing brand. Today, my art remains intrinsically linked to the human body, but with one difference: my
art seeks to deconstruct the body and the aesthetic presumptions that are normally associated with it. I don't try to
stand out from my past in fashion, but merge it with my artistic vein. Thus, my work explores that intersection
between fashion and art. As an artist, I try to have a social attention and be able to contribute to several causes that
I consider important through my work.

I take my inspiration from various sources, but some are undoubtedly more recurrent than others. A distinctive
feature of my work is the incorporation of personal and distant memories. Another is the use of several mythological
references. But the observation of everyday life, in particular, and of human behaviour, in general, is undoubtedly
indispensable to my creative process.

In this way, and always with the desire to deconstruct the imaginary of our body and its aesthetics in mind, my work
involves playing with proportions of bodies and objects, with different scales, with different materials and fabrics,
resulting in large-scale installations and sculptures where my past is integrated through the use of artistic sewing, or
the manufacture of wearable sculptures.

Artwork 1 Title: D'leite
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 275cm X 275cm X 200cm
Artwork 1 Medium: Sculpture
Artwork 1 Commentary: This work was inspired by the story of my grandmother's marriage.

The elongated human figure represents Dona Ivanilde, a fragile, thin and beautiful woman. Here, she is depicted as a
copo de leite (Portuguese for both a calla lily and a glass of milk) – thus, the shades of white and the aspect of
something drained and spilled.

The pedestal, a white cube, symbolizes her family’s home, where she spent all her childhood waiting for the
moment of her emancipation, when she would finally be able to leave.

As for the excess of fabric on the floor, it represents the environment in which she lived in the midst of fabrics and
sewing. It also looks like an open box with something coming out from inside alluding to a blooming flower like the
copo de leite.

There is also a fly in the middle of the immensity of white milk ; this fly is her husband Expedito.

Website: www.alicegur-arie.com
IG: https://www.instagram.com/alicegur_arie/

Artist Statement: The concept of "seeing" is at the heart of my practice. Combining photography with digital
painting, I invite the viewer to replace the window through which they see the world, with a lens that interprets the
world into something that is at once familiar and foreign.

My work starts with photographs, primarily, but not always, taken in foreign locales. Inspired by the natural world,
landscapes, seascapes, wildlife and images of nature dominate my portfolio, ranging in style from bold saturated
abstracts to soft, textured tones. In some cases, the mode of transport itself becomes an integral component of the
finished image, producing aerials and underwater worlds. I am completely self taught.

Treating the photograph as a canvas, images are digitally "repainted" by hand with a "brush", sometimes in layers,
sometimes pixel by pixel. What is critical, is understanding that my work is not about digital manipulation or
software, but about my vision, and my ability to transform the canvas into an aesthetically compelling, memorable,
visual experience that appeals to the head and the heart.

This submission was the first of 6 animal commissions I have completed for an Asian Art Consultant, to celebrate
Chinese New Year (Year of the Horse). My brief included no more than the features of the astrological sign such as
positive and negative colours, directions, and numbers; animal attributions, and some short curatorial text on the
traditional / historical relevance of the animal in the Chinese astrological cycle.

Artwork 1 Title: Tianma
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 61cm x 41cm x 2.5cm
Artwork 1 Medium: artist photographed and hand repainted digitally
Artwork 1 Commentary: For a thousand years, China’s ruling elite prized the tianma, or heavenly steeds of
Central Asia. They imported these splendid animals, often with their foreign grooms and trainers. Like today’s
private jets, tianma celebrated the status of their owners in life. In death, sculptures and ceramic models
accompanied their owners, often to adorn their tombs.

These magnificent horses and stories about them have inspired artists and writers ever since. Indeed, when
commissioned to create a horse for the Chinese Year of the Horse, I was challenged to seek the essence of speed and
grace, yet convey the embodiment of an astrological sign with marked contradictions. The image had to be at the
same time simple, rich, accessible and captivating.

Only 2 years into my practice when I completed this artwork a few years ago, Tianma very much demonstrates my
desire to push the limits of mixed media, find the “sweet spot― where photography and painting converge, and
create something more than the combination of the two.

I am drawn to this image for its pull-you-in push-you-away atmosphere; the emotional, stylised interpretation of the
horse, and the use of texture, which draws us in to the darkness and allows us to walk into the image with all our
senses. If you feel from Tianma an enduring sense of Forever - even just for a moment - I have achieved what I was
striving to convey.

studios.
10 years ago we moved to Bristol, one of the most fascinating and ever so changing city in the UK.

Having the continuous feeling that I am longing back to painting, I decided to give up my office based job in the
digital world and started to work with real materials and live for my passion, watercolours.

My inspiration comes from the everyday life and people around me; the endless beauty of nature, mysterious
planets, tiny details of creatures and the adventures with my family and children. Through my paintings I am trying
to capture emotions and the excitement I feel when all those amazing colours are mixing and developing on the crisp
white paper in front of me....... It really is magic!

Artwork 1 Commentary: Helena is a 6 year old little girl in our neighbourhood in Bristol - her photographer mum
asked me to paint a portrait of her.
I did not want to create a classic portrait as I really wanted to show her personality through it too. I tried to catch her
unique features and cheekiness while playing outside.
Luckily they fell in love with the picture!

Artist Statement: I am a painter, currently based in Bristol, UK. I work primarily with oils but I also draw, film and
photograph. My work concerns that which is unknown, unseen – but also that which is inherent and fundamental.
Through the unconscious, it takes shape. My work explores the unknown through visual dialogue. The underlying
and unseen patterns to the natural order of the world are fundamental to my practice. My paintings are impressions
of the fractal geometry intrinsic to all that is known, and unknown.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 56 x 69 x 2
Artwork 1 Medium: Oil on Canvas
Artwork 1 Commentary: I know not what I see, but I still see it all the same. Boundaries are faded in the face of the
light and voices drowned in thunderous void. Down lanes forgotten and highways unknown, paths are revealed.
Gradually, the unconscious guides and settles, emerging through dust and the totality of fear, realised in an instant.
The harmony of symbiosis is revealed and echoes on. An implicit universal dialogue, it dances and sings, inward and
outward. It is implicitly twined together, pulsing and oscillating, rippling inwardly. A Timeless sublime; synchronising
harmoniously and mediated through chaos.

Through my projects I feel that I discover my inner fears, longings and re-evaluate my uncertainties. My work seems
to be an attempt to explore and question by metaphorical presentation my response to the hidden truths of the
world. The essence of the value of these works is in their inherent meaning and an atmosphere, which manifests

Artist Statement: Enam’s work merges textile and surface pattern techniques with methods of traditional
painting. Her practice serves as a vessel to examine issues that influence how we navigate the world. Those of
identity, womanhood and existence. In this way her work is a telling testament of my collective, lived experiences.

Textiles as a medium, allows Enam the freedom to experiment with materials. Working through the processes of
knitting, embroidery, wirework, weaving and printing as well as painting allows limitless expression, creating
stimulating, sensory ways to tell stories. Her affinity with the handmade is rooted in the cultural history of her Ewe
(Ghana) ancestors where weaving was once revered. Its value is intrinsic to Enam’s practice and inspires her
passion for promoting craft and the handmade. She is concerned by the gradual decline of traditional handcraft in
general and the decline of the communities that were once sustained as its value as viable trade is overtaken by
technology.

During the process of creating a textile piece, a force of kinetic energy is created that merges and travels with it,
transmitting to those who come into its contact, becoming part of their lived experience. This cyclical energy
transference has a cathartic influence that the machine made item lacks. As a practitioner Enam works to restore
this and to revive craft’s status while attempting to question society’s increasing dependence on technology
and consumerism.

Artwork 1 Title: Teetering on the edge of visibility, the invisible disguised as visible
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 30x30x4.5
Artwork 1 Medium: Tea stained vintage erotica and personal photographs, nylon tights and acrylic paint on canvas
Artwork 1 Commentary: This piece forms part of my current body of work, ‘Nude Me/ Under the Skin’, which
investigates hosiery. Particularly how the seemingly simple garment, a staple of western women’s wardrobe has
for the black woman been another mode of marginalisation, ostracisation and castration.

Through the erotica images used in ‘Teetering’ the piece examines how hosiery is used as a tool to sexualise
women. By also placing it against images of the black woman nurse whose uniform included tights that did not
match her skin tone it becomes a comment on the differing layers of marginalisation black and white women face.

Following World War 2 Britain was in crisis, the ‘Empire’ called on the Commonwealth for support. The
migration now generalised with the term ‘Windrush’ was a result and the influx of black women from
Caribbean and Africa became the foundation of the NHS. Sadly while Britain promoted the fact the Commonwealth
community would be welcomed with open arms the reality was that they experienced intense racism. For the nurses
they experienced it from patients, the staff, in daily life down to the tights that were a public display of how much
they ‘didn’t belong’. For them the only option was to assimilate to a standard of beauty that did not
consider them. Yet that standard of beauty set by a white male patriarchy places the white woman on a pedestal
that is in reality another a tool to conform. Women are distracted with attaining an unattainable model of beauty
while the patriarchy controls all power. The multiple layers of tights wrapping the canvas and burying these images
denotes these layers of oppression. It also expresses how even those that better fit the feminine ideal are still in
reality invisible.

The final comment made by the veins painted over the canvas is a reminder to us all that underneath it all we are all
the human race. Be we white, black or of colour it’s the same system of veins pumping blood throughout our legs
and body, helping us navigate this earth.

Artist Name: Henrique Neves


Website: henriqueneves.com
IG: henriquenevesartist

Artist Statement: My practice investigates memory, archives, power, spaces, forms, and narrative. I seek to create
dialogues and frictions between various disciplines such as drawing, sculpture, flower design, architecture,
decoration, contemporary art, sewing, thereby questioning the differing ways they are viewed and valued. My art
occurs through appropriation, quotation, transformation and dislocation, starting from an image, artefact, concept, a
given fact, and from the context in which that ‘something’ is conceived.

I straddle, bridge, and combine ‘high’ and ‘low’ practices, calling into question the validity of the
gendering and other hierarchies associated with them, while desiring to celebrate and affirm these practices. I
engage in the pleasure of play, exploration, and juxtaposition of materials, concepts, scales, and representations,
using ordinary, accessible materials that relate to the source practices and objects, challenging the drive to resilience
and the supremacy of time by making things deliberately fragile and sometimes ephemeral.

My works connect my life experiences and family narratives to social, cultural, and artistic categories as part of wider
national, political, and historical dynamics. I often combine resonating micro narratives - the autobiographical, the
apocryphal, and peripheral/side narratives - to larger discourses on nation, gender, colonisation, and progress.
Violence is implied in absences and blind spots, in silent gestures and stories, in silenced subjects that are my
inspirations. In many ways I think my work generates from a sense of lack, of the recognition of an absence that I see
around me. It claims attention for that lack, attempts to counteract and fight it.

Artwork 1 Title: Tracings
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 60 x 50 x 20 (approximately)
Artwork 1 Medium: drawing and sculpture
Artwork 1 Commentary: Tracings is a tryptich conceived from a number of artefacts: the architectural plans of my
primary school, belonging to my grandfather who was responsible for its construction, and the templates/patterns
of shirt-cuffs and collars used by his mother, who worked as a seamstress. These plans and patterns became motifs
with which to trace ideologies and relationships regarding gender and power in the practices of architecture and
sewing.

The pieces are conceived both as drawings and sculptures and are generated from the architectural plans combined
with the seamstresses’ templates. The tracing of these artefacts transforms them into playful objects that quote
and reference architectural drawings, the body, and the act of sewing, as well as the curvilinear forms of early
modernist sculpture. As in most of my work, the materials are ordinary and accessible – brass, ink, acrylic paint -
and resonate with the original practices and objects, while questioning resilience and time by being made more
fragile, imperfect and uncertain.

Tracings form material explorations of my relations with the past, and with my personal histories, to the objects’
sensuality and materiality, and to the ghosts that haunt them.

Artist Statement: Artist Emma Fay uses body artistry to create exhibitions, media and live installations. Painting on
the human canvas to create artworks that challenge visual perception, Emma’s approach uses symbolic
expression and illusion, while her inspiration is derived from the natural world, humanities and social science.
Born in 1987, Emma’s education in the arts and beauty industry allowed her to develop and combine knowledge
and skills to manipulate the human form into unique bodies of work that appear in photographed exhibits,
performances and film.
Her rise to international recognition as a body artist came from the release of the Marvels of Nature series, which
combined the distorted quality of contortionism with painted depictions of animal forms. Following the worldwide
viral reach of the artwork, Emma’s work has been applied to more commercial domains, creating captivating
artwork for editorial and advertorial use, both as photographed body art and recreations at events. Her work has
been commissioned and featured in many publications, including The Guardian, The Telegraph and The Huffington
Post, alongside being utilised for campaigns and social causes.

Passionately endorsing community, the arts and wellbeing, Emma’s work has received Arts Council England and
University Research funding to create public exhibitions and projects, alongside receiving commissions from
independent organisations supporting further understanding of health, societal and environmental issues.

Her fine art collections include works exploring our relationship with the external world, internal dialogue, and
mindsets, with particular reference to metaphor, to depict a holistic view of ideas stemming from the human
condition.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 44x54x6cm and 45.5x62.5x2cm (Print)
Artwork 1 Medium: Mixed media
Artwork 1 Commentary: This is a series of work, one is a sculpture and the other is a framed print.
In a sculpture, I constructed 180 typical Japanese homemade dishes including appetisers, beverage and sweets with
resin and clay on brass rings which are contained in a glass top case.
Addition to the main materials, I also incorporated edible food ingredients such as dried vegetables, seasonings and
spices that I specifically preserved for the work in order to make it a little closer to the actual operation. All dishes
are what I actually cooked and served before, and for vegetarian.
The print tells the name and short description of dishes in Japanese and English in a form of menu.
This work derived from my experience of interpersonal relationship, and there are several emotions - distrust, grief,
anger, disappointment, hopelessness and acceptance behind the work.
Producing this work was necessary process to resolve my feelings and stop questioning myself rather than the
meaning of communication which is my usual practice.
With the completion of work and achieving closure what I want for this work now is to arouse and convey the feeling
of positive emotions - interest, surprise, amusement, fun and joy - to the viewers.

Artist Statement: My paintings are figments of myself, founded on my compulsion to collect photographs as a
powerful means of possession. I work from photos, postcards and mementos, that which are my own and those I
have found, salvaged and reclaimed, as a way to deconstruct and create new narratives.

I stay faithful to the source with translucent layers of oil paint, and muted colours whilst omitting features to affect
the viewers engagement with the painted scene. I hope to display nostalgic ideas of familiarity, illusions of intimacy
and the desire to form an attachment with remnants of the past. In this sense my work is both a biographical and
ambiguous search for identity and belonging.

entrance into the room, it’s haunting ambivalence, the door behind her being a symbol of leaving one space for

Artist Statement: I meddle within the poetics of incompleteness: splicing together letters and colour to form abstract
painting underlined by poetry and prose.
The essence of my current work has seeped in from the nineteen novels and novellas of Vladimir Nabokov; an
illustrious, floral writer, whose text is a source of clear visual inspiration. Words and phrases form the basis for my
colourful abstractions, with emphasis placed on my connection with the rhythm, phonetics and ambiguity. While
thoroughly enjoying the work of Nabokov my own painting process is not a representation of the text, but, merely a
self-absorbed relationship with the act of the written word.

Artist Statement: The work I practice moves towards visual art and performance encompassing a research that
investigates methodologies of production for images and imagination within memory. Gestures and symbols work
as tools of composition for scenarios through which I attempt to recover a poiesis of a personal or universal history.
The interplay of traces and time sets performance not only as live practice but also as a practice of archive and
memory which I explore through multiple media. The repetition is used as a prayer for the desiring body to lead to
the timing of endurance which I try to embody into images, trace-signs and the body itself.

Artist Statement: I have become increasingly interested in the study of human behaviour within our western culture.
We are in the age of global interaction and networking, where hand-held devices have become an extension of our
bodies and identity. Behind the safety of a ‘blue screen’ we engross ourselves in a virtual world, impacting our
everyday lives to the extent that we expect everything to be so instant. My work has been focused on the absence
of physical social engagement due to the growing need to communicate through mobile devices. This has been
explored through influences from modern technology and mark-making.

The exploration of consecutive layering has become an intrinsic process within my work. It has developed to create
the illusion of space, both in-between each individual layer and compositionally to form the image, which in turn
implies the passing of time; a single moment that has been frozen and stretched out consecutively, creating energy
within a space of stillness.

Artist Statement: Most of my works are paintings or drawings combined with installation. I would like to define
myself as a painter. However I have wondered why painting has to have completeness in a single frame. I have
started get interest of the way how social media platform like Instagram shows the images. Today, images are
making context with another images and extending their meaning in different arrangement and variations. I doubt
about closed completeness about painting limited in a frame. I focus more on how 2 dimensional painting acts and
makes relationship with space and objects in 3 dimensional world. When bleached white cube spaces try to separate
paintings from the everyday life, I want to find a possibility how painting become a part of everyday life. I explore
how individual memories and sensibilities compose different landscape and thought-scape in their mind. This is also
can be an experiment how image as material can be combined or react with other different materials. Painting is
special material in this experiment since it has physical 3 dimensional body and 2 dimensional image simultaneously.
I believe this can be a key to explain how sensibilities can transcendence the physical dimension.

Artist Statement: My artworks are created entirely from the colours and textures that I rip and cut from old

but have developed a way of working with wet paper which allows me to lay down and manipulate it in a different
way. I endeavour to continue experimenting and finding ways to push the limits of this medium. 'Fear' is the latest
piece in my current collection 'Fragile'. My work is fuelled by previous experiences with ill health and bereavement,
it highlights for me the fragility of life and how precious each moment is. How we need to cherish, protect and
appreciate what we have. I like to explore how children see the world with wonder as a reminder, I look at emotion
as it’s what makes us real. Even my landmark pieces are of places significant to me, be it places that I associate
happy memories with or places I have spent quality time with the people I love. I seek to draw attention to my

Artist Statement: I, for many years has worked as a nurse manager in the NHS, during my spare time,I have always
had a passion for architecture, design and pencil drawing. My appreciation for architecture specifically relates to
more traditional methods of design and structural form, leaning more towards an appreciation of Middle Eastern
architecture and culture.

It's historical Beauty and cultural significance in time and history are elements that I am inspired by to reflect in my
drawings and explore further as my artistic talent grows.

What inspires me is to create an image that shows a landscape or building at an angle that you would not normally
expect to see in an ink and pencil drawing.

I love drawing in monochrome and I am inspired to reflect the building that I see with as much detail as I can to show
it in an accurate way and to accentuate it's beauty and structure.

I love being able to use simple shading techniques make the image come alive and find this the most inspiring part of
the art process

feeling of depth and distance beyond it disappearing in the distance

Artist Statement: I graduated from the University for the Creative Arts (UCA), Farnham with an MA (Jewellery) in
September 2016. I then spent a year at UCA as Artist-in-Residence.

I teach jewellery to adults in Surrey and Hampshire. This allows me time to focus on my own work but also to have a
balance between making and teaching. Balance is important to me. I’ve always worked with a lot of people and I
need to maintain this contact and find ways of helping my students excel in this craft that I love.

As an MA student, my visual research had included many objects and shapes from the natural world. When looking
at a feather, I was struck by its structure and repeating lines, and I began to translate all of these elements into
metal. Repetition and pattern seem to be present in most of my designs and the feather moved me towards using its
structure to create jewellery pieces.

I became interested in interference patterns which create an optical effect (moiré) when lines cross, and my
research led to pieces with multiple crossing lines creating a moiré effect when the piece is moved or when the
viewer changes position in relation to the piece.

I am currently making kinetic pieces in which a moveable element allows the wearer to control the optical effect. An
example of this is my range of optical pendants in which lines move across other lines, allowing the wearer to play
with, and connect with the piece.

Description
This pendant and the clasp are made from sterling silver. The internal mechanisms include stainless steel. The beads
are faceted turquoise strung on silk thread. This piece is kinetic. “Curve― was constructed entirely by hand,
using a piercing saw, filing, soldering and finishing.

The pendant and clasp are finished with a glass brush to achieve a fine scratch surface for a contemporary look. The
faceted turquoise beads are strung on double silk thread with a pearl-type clasp. The silk is protected by gimp
(French wire) where it is threaded through the loops of the clasp. The first few beads at each end are knotted to
ensure integrity of the clasp and the correct tension.

The concept was to achieve an optical effect (moiré), as in much of Christine’s other work, but to give the
control of this effect to the wearer of the piece. To achieve this, the pendant must have intrinsic movement so that
the piece can be manipulated and allow the effect to be enjoyed by the owner. The effect is stimulating and
fascinating and encourages the wearer to play with and enjoy the effects in this unique piece. One face can be
moved whilst the other remains static.

Because of the curved lines, there is a variety of patterns and visual effects, such as fan shapes, created as the piece
is manipulated.

The piece can be set in a different position each time it is worn, or even when being worn, creating a piece of
jewellery which looks different all the time.

Dimensions
The pendant measures 58mm x 55mm x 5mm. The faceted turquoise beads are 2mm diameter (approx.). The length
of the necklace is 610mm (23.5 inches). The clasp is approximately 6mm
in diameter.

Author
The maker of Optical pendant: “Curve― is Christine Johnson
(Graduated from the University for the
Creative Arts, Farnham, UK: MA Jewellery (Distinction) September 2016).

Date of production
This necklace was made in May 2018.

Artist Statement: My work looks to dig into the relationship between human behaviour and art-making; why we
create images and how we consume them. I’m looking to peel back the layers of illusion that encase this
relationship to reveal certain mechanics that are unavoidable in our engagement with images.

In working to expose our vulnerability to the power of images, the work has a recurring friction that simultaneously
indulges in and questions the voyeuristic aspects of visual representation, where the distinction between
observation and voyeurism is no longer apparent. Using references to art history as recognisable points of contact,
the line between attraction and repulsion is blurred in order to deconstruct our relationship to the image.

I’m drawn to digital mediums like CGI digital photography because they lend themselves well to dealing with
ideas around illusion, artifice, and the re-presentation of nature within art. Within the work, these tools are used to
deconstruct the perpetual cycle of seduction; how we are seduced by elements of the natural world, and how we
seduce others.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 114 x 120cm
Artwork 1 Medium: Chromogenic Print
Artwork 1 Commentary: This image, from a 3D laser scan, is part of a project resulting from a recent residency with
the National Trust at Coughton Court, a gothic stately home in Warwickshire.

The project stemmed from my response to the restrictions and limitations of working within a carefully preserved
grade-1 listed mansion. This digital scan will in theory last indefinitely, while the actual bed requires continual
maintenance to prevent it fading away. It is an exploration into the murkier side of nostalgia and our desire for
archiving as a response to the fear of loss.

This image can also be viewed as a (non-partisan) reflection of Britain’s current state of limbo due to Brexit. Ideas
surrounding nostalgia and preservation have been sewn into the tapestry of the discourse around the issue, and this
can be seen as an undercurrent in the work.

Like a digital restoration or archiving project, the scanned bed is left untouched and unblemished, capturing the
intricate folds in their preserved, ghostly state, and void of human presence. It is a monochrome embalmment of an
object with deep connection to art-history that delves into role that technology plays in our response to the fear of
loss.

Artist Statement: Humna Mustafa is an artist with a passion for visual story telling, inspired by the Indian arts and
the work of William Morris. She uses them as metaphors for where she was born and where she resides today. She is
highly influenced by the cultural influences that guide the pattern making process, imbibing it with subtle meanings
and depth under the surface beauty.

Growing up in the Middle East with an Indian heritage, Humna gained early exposure to the religious and cultural
symbolism behind the pattern languages of regional arts and crafts, inspiring her to study Textile Design with a focus
on natural dyes. This led to her initial work using natural pigments and calligraphic elements on installations and
paintings.

Moving to Australia 14 years ago brought on an extensive period of exploration with the traditional techniques of
Henna. Inspired by its deep symbolism, Humna demonstrated her art through various workshops and residencies.
She expanded traditional techniques onto silk and ceramics, increasing the art’s reach while respecting the rich
pattern heritage.

Her passion to create and share the intrinsic beauty of patterns has also led her to a number of collaborations in
photography and video. She also creates collections of ceramics for sale online to an international clientele.

Humna currently resides in Hitchin, a small town in the UK, where she explores her personal journey through time,
cultures and phases of life in her artworks.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 75cm x 56cm

Artwork 1 Commentary: We Share The Same Moon is an ink and acrylic on paper work that shows a floral story of
self discovery. People continually highlight cultural differences between the East and West. Having lived in various
cultures around the world, her painting counters this narrative by highlighting the human similarities she’s found
in making each place her home.

The floral display references the garden of William Morris and the peacock – an Indian bird representing herself
– symbolises her current home in the UK. Looking back to her roots, the mosque in the shadows shines under the
moonlight. The same moon that shines on her home here too, its consistent light regardless of where we go and who
we become. Its light doesn’t differentiate between locations, so why do we choose to be biased against people
from different backgrounds and cultures?

Artist Statement:
My art comes from my own experiences and arises from a feeling of urgency that I want to make a picture of
something that stroke me. Every picture is an attempt to simplify the relationship between my inner self and the
outside world and give it a tangible shape. I can find inspiration in things and objects of my everyday life, in traveling
or in images I imagined trough novels and literature. I am searching for beauty through colors and light,
imperfections and contrast and everything that I can clearly perceive as spots of color, lines and marks. Everything
becomes a metaphor for my thoughts and painting transforms what I see in what I perceive, shifting the meaning of
the subject and the way I look at it.

Artwork 1 Title: Jhonny
Artwork 1 Dimensions: cn 125 x 125
Artwork 1 Medium: Oil on canvas
Artwork 1 Commentary: This painting belongs to a series of works titled De Rerum Natura as homage to the poem
written by Lucretius in the first century B.C. The philosopher identifies the understanding of nature as an essential
instrument in nearing humankind to the essence of things, and thus to authentic happiness. Parting from these
premises Lucretian thought became a founding basis and stimulus with which to observe the nature that surrounds
me and I have been particularly focused on the observation of trees and plants, which are not often perceived of as
identifiable individuals but as blurred backgrounds.
As in the Dino Buzzati novel, The Secret of the Old Woods, trees are transformed into presences, assuming the
appearance of creatures that are different from humans anatomically, but equally capable of feeling and evoking the
same sentiments and passions that the human spirit can.

which made him very popular in his city and which aroused the interest of Verona curators, who encourage him to

2018 at Palazzo Stella in Genoa and in the 6th edition of the Feria de Italia at the Palacio de la Buhaira in Seville.
"I Volti" are oil paintings on canvas. Every person has their own peculiar features, through which they can be
identified and remembered. Depicting profiles without, or nearly, their specific traits means to gather their soul. Jacq
is anonymous because the faces show themselves up in the Place of the artist: "I Volti" exist, they belong to real
people and they have a story to tell through their most intimate relationships, like the one between father, son and
mother. The attention of many journalist has often been focused on the “I Volti―: Among the main published
articles, we would highlight the most prestigious one: the article in the Corriere della Sera in December 2017, "Jacq

Artwork 1 Commentary: Specific physical and expressive characteristics make each person unique and identifiable.
With this in mind, the work “Le viaggiatrici" (The Travelers) shows how physical complexity is simplified by
highlighting just specific and essential features to represent their synthesis and their soul. The work aims to make
the subjects recognizable but also emotionally involved.
So the artistic work consists in the representation of the physical appearance through the simplification, and in
striking the emotional side as well.

Artwork 1 Title: Devil's landscape
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 160 * 60 * 300 cm
Artwork 1 Medium: concrete and metal
Artwork 1 Commentary: Landscapes that have been made by nature, or so we would assume, but that somehow do
not look natural at all. Many of the devil’s works can be seen throughout the world. In California, Ireland and
Colombia different rock formations have been made in an eerie and unusual way, to the point that it would not have
made any sense that nature could have actually produced them at all… they actually looked manmade… thus,
the devil enters the picture. But as Adorno argued, nature becomes history and history becomes nature, the two are
so entangled that trying to separate them would prevent us from realizing how much of our “second nature―
we give to “first nature― and vice versa. Even now entering the Anthropocene era, the power of humanity’s
geological monster has grown to surpass the cultural towards the natural in most of the corners of the world (for not
to say all). Thus, without wanting it to, we became the devil. A monster that no longer recognizes its own work in
nature and cannot distinguish itself from the fiction he created as nature.

Artist Statement: Murton’s sculptures deal with the idea of threat and uncertainty. Playing with precarity and
gravity, Murton gives the work a platform for empty illusions, in the sense that if a piece of work became imbalanced
it could cause damage to the space it’s in, other objects or even harm viewers but when the work is viewed from
a different angle it becomes clear that it is a façade. Murton creates these illusions that set up danger using a
combination of domestic, or ordinary, objects and fantastical natural objects that project weight.

illusion.

In 2018 she completed a Certificate III in Visual Arts at the Northern College of the Arts and Technology in

She has participated in over 20 selected exhibitions and obtained encouragement and recommended awards.

She is interested in representing the industrial and city landscape and its place in our natural environment and how
each interacts with the human species.

She has a deep seeded suspicion about things which appear to be “nice―. She detests “perfect― objects
as a main form of artistic expression. In her observation, life is not nice at all, not perfect and definitely not smooth
and shiny. She is wary of the new and “proper―. She perceives that broken and cracked surfaces mirror human
struggles and are equipped with inner strength.

Her methodology is consistent. Although there may not always be material similarities between her different
projects they are linked by recurring formal concerns and through her subject matter.

Loosely translated: Everything that is fragile has a certain beauty, but it breaks – always.

In our fragile world there is no light without shadow. No joy without sorrow, no highs without lows, however
sunshine looks beautiful when it breaks through the clouds.
Without connections we seem to be nothing. Connections are like building blocks which tie us to our families, other
humans, our cultures and our history. Our mortality and the decay of all things are the flip-side of living in the light.
In our shadow worlds, we struggle, feel empty and forlorn. We die.

Artist Name: Maria Zulueta


Website: www.mariazulueta.com
IG: maria.zulueta

Artist Statement: Maria’s main concept is to juxtapose nature with the man-made; to represent their connection
and confrontation. From her observations, reflections and imaginings of the natural environment, Maria attempts to
capture elements and qualities of the aesthetics of nature in her work. She creates a narrative to evoke something
significant from natures’ transformation, transience and fragility, to recall something significant from these
elements through the documenting of natures changes.

Themes that touch her and traditionally explored in art, that have strong connections to nature, are ‘the
sublime’; as explored by the philosopher Edmund Burke in the 18th century and the poet-scientist Goethe in the
19th century; and ‘vanitas’; the rich symbolism of life, death, transience and decay associated with Dutch still-
life painting in the 16th and 17th centuries. Both are directly relevant to Maria’s work. Meanwhile ‘the
uncanny’; as explored by the psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud in the early 20th century, which pertains to
something strangely familiar. These themes are incorporated in her practice practices and help to anchor her work
within a contemporary glass art context and practice.

Zulueta immerses herself into a continual exploration of materials and processes through an intuitive, inquisitive and
thoughtful engagement of playful encounter of material and making and philosophy. Through this process of
experimenting and testing, Maria has extended her knowledge of glass processes particularly in kiln cast techniques.

Artwork 1 Title: Walking Through The Layers Of Memory
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 50x70
Artwork 1 Medium: Photo Documentation of Performance
Artwork 1 Commentary: According to Gestalt, memory is the traces of perceptions. With the neural activation that
occurs during the perception, memory traces come into play and are stored in that way. The artist who matches the
Abud Efendi Konağı, which can be dated to the end of the 19th century, with the memory, rebuilds the traces left
by our knowledge that we do not want to remember as much as we want to remember. Bartlett's new approaches
to memory show that remembering is not the perceived, but is reconstructed and structured. The spectator who
leaves painful memorabilia records every step of the way, with all the shocks, sufferings, anguishes, drama,
untrained traumas, untouched griefs, deaths, difficult to pronounce, secrets wrapped in secrets constitutes a
common property-common-consciousness-common-consciousness. These re-constructed and structured tracks are
called erasures by actions that transform into artist's consecutive rhythms. Ebbinghaus showed that recall
performance increased as the number of recall in memory decreased, the time between recall and recall decreased,
and the amount of recalled material decreased. But every remembrance action has its forgetting process, and every
forget action has its remembrance process. The remainder from the moment that the present collides with the past
turns into the sediments that we left in our repetition and return.

Artist Statement:
Madeline Jones’s work draws from a multiplicity of artistic traditions such as sculpture, photography, print and
film. Her practice incorporates temporal assemblages which act as sculptural devices to explore internal and external
experiences of site. Notions of performance, failure, perception, material ephemerality as well as chance are
concerns within her ongoing research into these unfolding visual scenarios.

Currently her practice has been focused on developing camera-less photographic techniques which attempt to
record the points of collision between the interaction of her sculptural site-specific works and the landscape.

“Looking down at the point of contact, more over the point of impact as the materials collapsed on their crash
sites, I looked to record these catastrophes―.

Her recent photographic work, ‘Site of Failure’ was produced by incorporating soil, chalk, sand, seaweed, salt,
saliva and blood into the chemigram photographic technique. These site materials chemically react with
photographic paper and colour developer, burning images of explosions reminiscent of micro impacts, the new born
spectacles that arise from her engagement with the landscape.

Artwork 1 Commentary: The abstract conciseness dimensions of thought and feeling form the physical realm and
‘Who I am as a persona' in the whole is actually Fractal energy. Fractal energy fills the gaps between the
symmetries of the very small and very large. The absence of necessary abstract dimensions of thought and feeling in
the physical realm create a need force to fill the gaps. This artifact actually is the physical formation of this process
and visual narrative of how ‘nothingness’ came into being through an empiric experience and rational
reasoning. My philosophical reasoning for doing my art is to make people rethink and re-feel their abstract and
physical realm.

The medium I used to create the 'Nothingness' is my own alchemy development. The recipe for that is everyday
kitchen material: Cornstarch, Eggshell, Baby Oil, PVC Glue, Tull, Fiber. After many experiments, I developed a new
technique for clay making.
What makes it unique is the eggshell when it dries it became like a stone.

Artist Statement: Yasmin Hayat Maksousa attended Central St Martin’s before graduating from her MA at the
Prince's Foundation School of Traditional Arts. Inspired by her Syrian heritage, Yasmin Hayat paints using imagery
influenced by the regional style of miniature painting and sees herself as a contemporary, modern-day
‘Hakawati,’ the name given to a performing storyteller, once found in the coffee shops of the Middle East. The
aim of the Hakawati is to relay meaningful narratives all of which have universal wisdom, only Yasmin Hayat’s
medium is visual as opposed to oral.

Recently, Yasmin Hayat has looked to poetry and stories from Damascus, using the imagery conjured to create a
multi-faceted series of paintings about the capital using the tales and discourses which underpin Damascene society.
She believes that by bringing these stories to light, one can gain a dimensional understanding of what it means to be
a Syrian, an understanding which based off of culture and art directly from the region.

Yasmin Hayat sources the majority of her materials from nature. Taking and returning, in a harmonious cycle. She
continuously researches and experiments with pigments, creating an array of colours from semi-precious stones,
plants and earths. These tactile and luminous colours, which are often chosen due to their relation to the subject
being painted, create a dimensional finish which transforms, move and reflect, just like the stories depicted.

Yasmin Hayat, born 1990, currently lives and works from her studio in South London.

There are many proposed locations for this mysterious cave, one of which is the famous Mount Qaison in Damascus,

Artist Statement: Among the last generation of communism in Poland, I can still recall the overnight
transformation into what I call 'wild capitalism,' an explosion of colour and variety in
consumerist counter culture which informs my work.
With a focus on form and expression I aim to achieve painterly gestures which not
only echo the fast paced changes of my youth but also act as an exploration into
material culture.
Working from bright neon shades, to the earthiest of browns, these paintings derive
from a genuine passion for colour. Inspired by surroundings and observation of
everyday life I use painting as an expressive outlet, subverting commonplace objects
and translating it into abstract form. This is achieved not only through a gestural
demonstration of line and colour, but also by physically working upon found articles in
my present environment, ‘skipped’ or found objects.
Whether it be current posters from Poland, dried and pressed banana leaves from
Bangkok, construction worker’s materials, or dusty curtains found littered on the
streets of England, I use each item as a backdrop, working upon them, censoring them
of their previous use and juxtaposing them as an intuitive array of colour.
In this act, I hope to examine a collective perspective of our surroundings, the way in
which we view everyday ‘lowbrow’ or disposable objects and to change their meaning
by placing them within a Fine Art context.
I aim to create paintings that are both a reflection of our ever changing environment
and a joyful play with the very act of painting itself.

Artist Statement: I paint pictures that often reflect on narratives of the past, which may include events, phrases or
common objects that are usually associated with domestic concerns.

I have a deep interest in a dogmatic approach to drawing and painting, whereby I follow ritualistic working practices
that require certain rules to be observed and then ultimately challenged thereby offering a metaphor for the stories
behind the objects. Repetition of the subject is a key element that forces me to revisit the themes and ideas and I
strive to create work that encourages the viewer to question and wonder, to look and to engage, sometimes
uncomfortably. Using these themes within my work provides the opportunity to explore and create a vision of my
own domestic recollections and rules, positive or otherwise, and evaluate them within the context of making art.

Artist Statement:
I’m in the middle of journey of shaping my artistic idiom. I feel like I’m not there yet, but nearly there… My
main concern is to create my own mythology that is relevant to emotion, energy, mind and spirit through painting. I
intend to depict narratives inspired by my personal direct/indirect experience and imagination with characters I
create on a surface. If the narrative is the script I write, the surface I paint on is the stage. I prefer to working on a
large scale as I want the viewers not only to see my painting but also to experience it physically. I started art in
London with no art background from Korea, I studied the Western traditional paintings as the primary inspiration.
After returning to Korea, I became fascinated by Korean traditional art and pondered the authentic potential in the
balance between the Eastern and Western art. I am currently working on deepening my idiom with inspirations both
from the Eastern and the Western art as well as traditional and contemporary essence.
I want to make paintings that both so-called art and non-art people appreciate.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 194 x 97 x 2.5 cm
Artwork 1 Medium: Iridescent, Interference paint and Acrylic on Linen
Artwork 1 Commentary: There are various elements of my current concerns influencing this painting. This painting
was started from subject of ‘Day Meets Night’ that was the idea given from my muse who is UK MC named Big
H and also one of my biggest inspirations. During the conversation with him, various visual ideas occurred to my
mind, this painting is one of them. During the process of this painting, I got more ideas of this particular subject and
decided to make a series for it. This painting is the first work of ‘Day Meets Night’ series. Also I’ve been
interested in and working on studies of ‘Trees’ past few years since I started seeing trees as aerials for the
connection to Nature. In this painting, I tried to create my version of trees. In this painting, you can also find another
element of my current interests that is the universe. The Waterfall Nebula in the universe becomes the real waterfall
in my fantasy landscape. This particular scene was created after I was inspired by one of landscapes painted by Jeong
Seon who was one of the most significant Korean painters in traditional Korean art history. There are two pairs of
hands in this painting. One pair are holding the sun in the upper right of the painting, the other are passing over the
moon in the lower part of the painting. Those hands are representing the connection between two persons who are
depicted as trees. The hands passing over the moon were depicted with reference of the famous hands from ‘The
Creation of Adam’ by Michelangelo. I intended to find the balance between Eastern and Western style in order to
create my imaginary landscape. In this painting, I used acrylics that are not my favourite materials, but I wanted to
use the Iridescent and Interference colours that you can’t find in oil in order to add more magical effect on this
painting. This is large scale, the image uploaded doesn’t justify the original quality of the painting, I strongly
recommend you to check my website for its details. —> http://hyunsoooh.com/main.php

Artist Statement: I am an oil painter working with abstraction and materiality, having been influenced by Mark
Rothko, Piet Mondrain, and Howard Hodgkin. My current works examine the colours, textures, and
sensations associated with urban life in both India and Britain. Layering and scraping away paint
on the canvas is an analogue of the long-term processes of a city forming. This focus on urban
change and transient experience often means that the end result is less important than the
transitions and changes the canvas experiences over time.
Working with the materiality of paint has now become a crucial language through which I make
sense of the world. Such physical engagement is important to me as greater portions of everyday
life are digitised into immateriality and images increasingly replace the real.
I have pursued my interests through completing a Diploma of Higher Education in Fine Art at
Warwickshire College in 2006 and a bachelor’s degree in Fine Art at the Birmingham College of Art
in 2007. I am enrolled on the Masters degree course in Fine Art at Birmingham City University
for Autumn 2019.
I have enjoyed local recognition, and over the past decade my work has been exhibited at galleries
such as Leamington Spa Art Gallery and Museum, Rugby Art Gallery, Gallery 150, Slate Art

I find it everywhere: whether it's something straight-up-beautiful or an old, decaying door…


​
Art is like meditation to me; in this world full of distractions it allows me
to focus on here and now.
I predominantly work with acrylics as they suit my impatient nature and also create mixed media pieces.

I love exploring colour combinations, textures and composition.


But it all really starts with COLOUR for me.

The colour drives me to paint and sets the mood for my work.
​
I believe people are searching for a feeling in a painting,
something that evokes an emotion in them.

And I want that feeling to be something positive; whether its calm and inviting or uplifting and exciting, but
something that feels good. Good enough to get lost in the piece in front of you for a little and find your own personal

Artist Statement: My painting style is portrait dominant. I have in the past focused on watercolours and acrylics,
however I have been using oil paints for the last 14 months. I find that oils allow me to express more freely what it
rolling around in my head.

I typically base a painting on a photo or study from life of friends, family or somebody who has inspired me on some
level and always with a large focus on the emotional presence of the subject.

My painting method starts with a monochromatic base to build the values. I will then apply the flesh tones. Finally I
enjoy adding the clothing, objects and background in an undisciplined technique as I believe it compliments the face
and adds extra energy to the piece.

This painting was inspired by a lady who despite uncertainties and set backs always focuses on what is important in
life, encouraging others and always striving to better the world around us. This lady enriches all who have the
pleasure and is a force of nature to watch out for. So when I came upon this calm, contemplative image of her I knew
instantly that the paints had to get involved.

I intentionally left sections of the face absent of flesh tones as I have an appetite for allowing the painting process to
be observed. I feel the undisciplined technique of the clothing throws emphasis on her wonderful face and that calm
and captivating stare.

Artist Statement: Ruairi Fallon is a Belfast born London based artist primarily working in Oil, Reduction Woodcuts
and Installation. Ruairi’s current works are engaged with the London housing crisis, rising rent prices and
alternative living. The work often takes an autobiographical viewpoint on broader socio-political subjects,
referencing his own living situation since graduating in 2015. He has sought out affordable alternatives to renting
with the intention of allowing himself time to develop his artistic practice. Currently living in a caravan in London
Bridge his experiences have created a hyperawareness of the luxury of seemingly everyday facilities. The act of
building functional spaces and the architectural and domestic freedoms that comes with this is evident in the
construction of space in his 2D works. Combining memories, architectural designs and five years of photographic
reference, spaces are constructed and distorted in order to convey insight into this experience. Objects and plants in
various states of solidity suggest a transience to the existence. The idea that a high price is derivative of quality is an
interesting concept that these works aim to question, exuding a colourful optimism in the celebration of taboos
around not working, claiming back one's time and rejecting the status quo and the price tag that accompanies it. His
works are a sculptural endeavour in themselves, often becoming a record of spaces and experiences that existed on
a temporary basis, before inevitably being deconstructed and moved on.

complexity of motions through this or other worlds; whether it's physical, mental or spiritual. The subtle nuances in

Artwork 1 Commentary: Conditioning is something we all experience. It makes up who we are – our beliefs,
behaviours, habits, knowledge, likes and dislikes. Experimental in Nature (2017-18) examines a basic example of
developmental associative learning – how children correlate behaviour with the colour, texture, location, material
and purpose of an object. If a child identifies a cabbage as being something green, an object meant for consumption,
which is found in the supermarket, kitchen or in nature, how would they identify and behave towards it if its
characteristics were altered? The outcome of this tested theory became a documented social experiment, and when
exhibited could be tested further by its gallery audience.

piece. With this piece however i wanted to take a more literal approach and simply capture the moment since
it's not something i could have tried to come up with myself, the fact it's naturally 'designed' means the balances

I want a calming sense of tranquillity to be found from my photography, and a sense of quiet that reflects the

sense of isolation, but its not a bleak isolation, its more of a break from chaos, and a choice rather than something

Artist Statement: My recent works have been made exclusively in carbon fibre and has enabled a way to make
structured drawings, where its extreme lightweight and rigid nature takes the notion of the pencil mark (carbon and
graphite being the same element) into three dimensions. The black lines function to create strength and structure,
which simultaneously abstract and obscure as the process evolves.
Much of the subject matter within my work has revolved around architectural and religious references. Ecclesiastical
windows have been of particular interest and how their role differs from the usual role of a window. Arch and rose
windows function to narrate, they tell a story in the form of a complex technicolour fan of symbols and depictions.
Their function is not of a window to look through, but one to look up to, one that works like a painting, promoting
images of aspiration, wholeness and coherence. Drawn in carbon fibre, the window is black, its narration and light is
extinguished, and yet its wholeness and coherence is paradoxically perfectly intact. Its beauty is monochrome,
symbolic of its own material, carbon, an element essential to all living forms of life and yet paradoxically whose
allotrope is clear, diamond.

Artist Statement: I am intrigued by the forms humans create and place in our landscape. We might see these
everyday and not notice them. I looked closely at urban landscapes. The arrangement of forms and considered lines
in brutalist architecture provided me with a rich source for a composition. I paint with oils on a raw linen canvas,

Artist Statement: My work reflects my interest in history and is a place where the past and present meet. I draw
attention to the importance of heritage and question what should be saved for future generations and why. I
believe strongly that this should be a collective responsibility which is often neglected and feel the need to record
what I encounter in the present for posterity. I employ a range of techniques and materials to create work that
serves as a haunting record of what could potentially be lost to future generations.
My work is full of historical references and my extensive background research drives my ideas and practice. I use my
work to create a narrative between my images and audience to make them question what they are viewing. I often
focus on buildings or areas of historical interest that are suffering from neglect and make art that highlights their
status as endangered species. This could take the form of an abstracted glass sculpture of a car wreck in an area of
outstanding beauty; a photogram of blown plaster in a Grade 1 listed building or a series of photographs of a
museum collection that is temporarily on show before it is returned to its storage unit.

church where I saw the blown plaster. I then increased the size from A4 to A0 to abstract it further.

Artist Statement: I am a Romanian-born visual artist and photographer based in Glasgow, United Kingdom.
Recently, I graduated, receiving a First-Class Honours Degree in Photography, specialising in fine art and
documentary photography.
In my work I explore the relationship and impact between traditions and the modern era, investigating how our
perceptions over the world are influenced by cultural heritage. Moreover, I am very interested to explore the fluid
borders of identity, and how I can capture these within my art.
Having a growing passion for crafts and textiles, I am also developing new techniques in combining photography with
other materials to create unique pieces, while finding inspiration in themes such as faith, legacy, loss and
regeneration.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 42 x 59.4 x 2
Artwork 1 Medium: Photography
Artwork 1 Commentary: The displayed photographs are part of a documentary project that seeks to provide insights
into the lives of people that continue to practice ancestral rituals and wear traditional attire in Europe.
Throughout this series, I am investigating how our perceptions over the world are influenced by cultural heritage.
My photographs are documenting stories of individuals and communities from different regions of Romania.
Romanian folk textiles, could to be regarded as an interplay between invention, innovation and ancient heritage
transmitted from generation to generation, acting as symbols produced over centuries of cultural exchange.
With more than 43% of its population living in the countryside, with many working in agriculture, Romania is
Europe’s most rural and agrarian society. Due to complex socio-political, historical and cultural factors, ancient
customs and traditions are still very much alive.
In this context, is worth mentioning that most common hallmarks of these traditions are linked to the peasant
garments, which nevertheless faced problematic and endangered times.
It is fascinating to discover ancient traditions, passed from generation to generation, still being celebrated and
preserved to our days.
We desire to understand where we come from, thus my intention is to use this project as a trigger for discussions
about the importance and meanings of our inherited legacy, focusing on diverse layers of personal history and
collective memory that shape our identity.
Although many aspects of a culture could be considered unfamiliar, ultimately we are all bound by the same
primordial feelings, love, hopes and fears.
“Tradition is not the worship of ashes, but the preservation of fire.― (Gustav Mahler)
My work is influenced and informed by anthropology and ethnography. I am investigating some important nuances
in the study of the folk costume through the photography lens, in a quest to find if the results are equally valuable
when the camera is used as a recording tool (i.e. documentary photography) or as a creative vehicle (i.e. portrait
photography).
My aims are to contribute to a better understanding of the intersection between photography and anthropology,
and their use in the research of peasants’ textiles.

Artist Statement: Super-technology, great as it is, has caused the humanities and the arts of the day forget their true
language, that of inner being. The scientific methods seen applied to some of the day’s art works are brilliant, but
great love alone is the aim of all art. Art is not titillation, not information, not reduction. Art must somehow or other
still have the mysterious power of transcending history, and horizontal time, that alone makes us see things acutely.
Artists must think from the ground up, that is, on all forms of creativities: whether of the arts, the sciences and even
the faiths.
For me no glossy synthetic surfaces do, only those that come naturally. Kinetic sculpture can be exciting, but the
Neolithic methods are closer to our bone.
I'm for permanent experiences alone. Through only by craft are these turned into moments of permanent art. In this
excitable age, serenity is of the greatest value. The old Indian carvings created a mood of serenity. It is these that
make us really breathless. Think of the dancing Shiva in stone! Here is true poetry. So art better not be fugitive.
Good art is not descriptive, but a carrier of culturally distilled emotions. I believe the displacement of the living and
the organic from our civilization has gone too far with the development of the machine and machine-like minds. This
has led to the dehumanization of art itself. We have become just too regulated and narrow. A disaster for our own
humanity.

Artwork 1 Title: MIND'S EYE
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 60X35X35
Artwork 1 Medium: PIGMENT IN WHITE CEMENT (HABUR STONE)
Artwork 1 Commentary: Versatile Artist Neeraj Gupta is back with his signature style grotesque heads. The artist
explores between perceived reality and the creativity of human mind by giving form to it. These distinctive style of
heads with impressive figural distortion and descriptive thick layers of pigmented cement treatment in most
vibrant colors can be best described as variegated, bizarre or moiled, quaint and pied. Neeraj conflates the Indian
aesthetics with his signature grotesque style to depict the anxieties of modern life. Distortions have been often used
to emphasize features of spiritual significance thus increasing the intrinsic aesthetics value of composition. The
representational style is abstract rather than naturalistic.

The Artist continues to exploit prodigious and quaint style to express inner turmoil and anxiety . Famous for
versatility, Neeraj defends his style by commenting that heads are for communication of emotional intensity and not
for decoration. Some of the forms are fantastical while others are quite amusing but these anomalous forms are
reflection and expression of inner most self of the artist. The most astonishing feature of these sculptures is the
surface texture achieved with pigments and cement which the artist claims to have innovated and invented. The
artist adopts a distorted but sophisticated approach to achieve the abstraction of facial forms. These sculptures are
bold in execution and virtual in expression. These Sculptural forms truly reflect the complete understanding of the
full spectrum of the aesthetics foundations of contemporary forms.

Artist Statement: My work examines the mythology of happiness, and the emotional space within a relationship:
from the promise of undying love, the desire to be loved, to the disillusionment of the mundane. The senario runs
from these to the rediscovery of the self. Weighted expectations tend to see women in this trap more than men, but
it is, of course, not inevitably the case.
My paintings reflect these tensions through the contrast of the drawn line against more solid space and a bold or
emotive use of colour. I contrast the immediate, even the transitory, with more solid space; the drawn line visceral
and emotional. I like to use oil bars to draw on the canvas with a vitality of line and emotion. I see my work as
essentially narrative, telling a story or portraying an event,
I like to work in oil because of the colour and the paint qualities which allow time for reflection and dialogue with the
work. I am influenced by pop art, especially Patrick Caulfield, and the political paintings and references of Kitaj.

Artist Statement: The theoretical background to my art practice, as a painter, is informed by my current research
into Empathy Theory and Aesthetics, within the cultural context of associated developments: these are
Phenomenology; Associationism and early Psychology; Memory Theory; Pantheism and Theism; colour and light
theories and the science of optics; and the emotive power of compositional geometry and spatial depth. My essay
on Empathy was published in the catalogue ‘EMPATHY’, Canwood Gallery, 2018 (ISBN 9781527227538).

My interest in Empathy Aesthetics is because it offers a fusion between the aesthetically-conceived art work and
conceptual art practice: art forms which appeal to both the emotions and our ability to actively regard, reflect and
reason. Through this process of aesthetic fusion we can experience dissonance and harmony; beauty and ugliness;
trauma and tranquillity; disinterest and pleasure; and visual metaphor, analogy and ambiguity. As artists we create
with the awareness that, in addition to our own artistic intentions, the viewer always brings something of
themselves, their life-histories, cultural backgrounds, epistemological make-up and sensory awareness. The
experience of Empathy Aesthetics can be pleasurable, profound and imaginatively-engaging. It reaffirms art as a
form of creativity (not production) with all the human awareness and sensitivity that this implies.

Having relocated from London to North Gloucestershire, in 2014, I am actively engaged in creating new
contemporary categories for landscape painting practice. This involves an immersive process of purposeful
wanderings of the countryside along country lanes, rights of way, through woods and forests and across hills and
escarpments.

Artwork 1 Title: Un-natural Nature: Tree Portrait (6)
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 47x47x3.8cm
Artwork 1 Medium: oil on linen canvas
Artwork 1 Commentary: This painting belongs to my most recent contemporary landscape category, ‘Un-natural
Nature’. Here “un-naturalness― involves both the rejection of conventional landscape pictorial ideas, such
as descriptive colour and lighting, scale and perspective, and broader cultural assumptions. The latter addresses the
empathetic perceptional states of glancing, looking and seeing and the experiential outcomes of recollection,
reflection, wonder and desire. Taking Rilke’s enigmatic statement, “the listening blue―, coined by the poet
in response to late paintings by Cézanne, this painting is part of a new series, of small and large paintings, which
explores the sentient nature of blue, as a living force.

Milkshake Monkey for Five and RTE’s Ogri that graced Eire’s Domestic Postage Stamp.
So I’ve been busy but I went to Art College as a Teenager to pursue a Fine Art Career and in 2010, in part inspired
by Jim Henson’s early work ‘The NBC Pipes,’ I decided to return to it.
Instead of abandoning all that I had learned in Puppetry, TV, Film though I combined learned craft knowledge and
entertainment goals with those from my early art student works which had inter-played objects and images. Painting
on scrap Car parts, Mirrors and Plexiglass for example. With this I created a series of building based artworks
inspired by the 2011 British Art Show 7. Called it Puppetisation.
Today I create artworks as Assemblages. My Objet D'art draw on older visual art forms like Medieval Reliquary, Well

Artist Statement: There isn't anything which has to be something in my painting. 'Something' is anything and nothing
has to follow a meaning in logic. It can be upside down so that the sky is the ocean for example. A tree branch
transforms itself to a spider's leg so that it bites a bird and so on.
So, rather than copying and painting a kind of preconceived wording which in fact I always have, the deleting and
disfiguring of those 'words', reducing them to the point of meaninglessness ( I sometimes wonder that maybe I
should call my painting " Stupid Art " ) and then the search on the surface of that very same canvas which all
painters have been using, of a spot ( I call it ' an eye' ) that could open up the whole new space are what I am
interested in painting. As far as I'm concerned it is encouraging to think that such space still exist in painting.

headless figure looming on the right hand side. Then I found another man, a teeth seller from el-Fnaa square after
several times of canvas spinning. A cactus started to grow as a consequence then a bird on the leaves of a palm tree.
A title came along with a presentiment of a woman named 'Marine'. But then all of them disappeared when an arm-
less man appeared on the left hand side of the vertical canvas. The bird was now caught after the leaves had
transformed themselves to a leg of a spider. This was how this painting had become meaningless.

Artist Statement: I taught myself to carve in stone prior to attending art college, having made objects from a young
age. My enduring fascination with working in stone lays in the physicality of direct carving, the challenge of
describing form in the round and the beauty of the medium. My early carvings were figurative and influenced by the
work of modernists, such as Henry Moore and Jacques Lipchitz.

My studies (The City Lit, Chelsea School of Art, West Surrey College of Art & Design and The Center for Creative Arts
in Detroit), expanded the works’ content and the media used, and provided opportunities to exhibit my
sculpture. Following art college, I trained as an art teacher and taught in London before moving to Hampshire. I
now work part-time and am able to focus more fully on carving.

Recent work has realised my long-standing interest in portraiture, which is executed in high and bas-relief. I work
the stone with traditional hand tools and relish the challenge of capturing not only the sitter’s physical
appearance, but also their personality.

weeds. It all enchants me. However, I’m not a botanical artist, or a hyper realist—I’m more interested in
conveying the spirit of things, rather than depicting every little detail.

I love working with paper—thick watercolor paper with deckled edges, and collages made with kraft paper, rice
paper, tissue paper, old book pages, pages from magazines—even silver foil. I work in layers, cutting, tearing and
slashing holes to expose what lies beneath. But often I just paint and draw—using watercolor, ink, graphite,
charcoal, gesso, oil pastels, and sometimes, gold or silver leaf.

I was born in Greece, and now I share my time between Athens and France. I’m self-taught, and I love going to
exhibitions as often as possible and getting inspiration from a wide range of artists.

Artwork 1 Commentary: A majestic eagle with spread wings. I applied my layered collage technique, using pieces of
kraft paper, rice paper, old book pages and crumpled tissue paper; painting each layer partly with watercolor,
slashing through the end result with a cutter to expose layers and colors beneath, and adding finishing touches with
gesso and oil pastel. The textured surface gives life and depth to a somewhat stylized image.

Artist Statement: David John Hilditch allows paint to have a life of its own, creating complex and
abstract environments where ideas of reality can emerge and transform free
from the moorings of time, space and causality. This freedom is explored
through the language of clouds in flux, hints of facial structures, abstract
textures and forms from nature. Inspired by the masters of figurative oil painting
and the writings of Spinoza, Kant and Hume, his watercolours and large scale
oils reflect on perception, impermanence and identity in a way that is deep,
engaging and open to endless interpretation.

Artist Statement: A figurative artist working predominantly with drawing and painting in oils, I strive to capture
something real about my sitters and the space they occupy. Currently studying the Diploma in Portraiture at the
Heatherley School of Fine Art after a degree in English and Modern Languages at the University of Oxford, I am
interested in mood, atmosphere and the stories we often unconsciously tell about ourselves. My portraits are
simultaneously an attempt to control that narrative, and an act of exposure and vulnerability - for both artist and
sitter. My work is a constant exercise in pushing myself to lose control and let the work emerge for itself.

Berni makes a enigmatic model. I wanted to capture her air of insouciance and quiet melancholy, and how - with her
relaxed but spiky pose, and contemplative gaze - she always just looks a bit cool.

´Life seems like a constant fight, it is intended to be a journey and that you need to make your way through it.
There is always hope and aspirations because you will never fight for something you don’t truly care about´

My artwork is mainly focus on the thinking that lies behind it. The painting shows a woman who tries to make her
way through the woodland. The undergrowth represents the adversity on her journey. There is still hope, the
reflection of the light on her eyes shows that she can see what she’s looking for .
The prominent eyes are the main features in the painting. Eyes are the most expressive part of the human face, they
reveal our feelings and our state of mind and spirit.
My inspiration comes from deep love for nature.
I used perspective to create an illusion of space and depth,
setting the composition of light, reflection and colour, such that the subject appears real.

exploring the human character and inner essence of the subject. Fascinated with popular culture, the faces found in
this realm inspire her portraiture. In this series she seeks to appropriate the language and imagery of music by
capturing the sense of sound and movement in each brushstroke. Combining traditional painting techniques with
contemporary design, Danielle’s exploration of the intricacies of character represents a curiosity and admiration
for the subject and their music. With an emphasis on creating a connection between the image and the viewer, her
practice reflects her interest in the lives of performers including the concept of private and public identities.

is a dynamic balance between empty space and detailed brushwork thus creating strong visual effects in a two-

artist often draws on imagery from other art forms such as photography and film in order to create innovative and

Artist Name: Eleanor Breeze


Website:
IG: https://www.instagram.com/eleanor.breeze/

Artist Statement: Painting is central to Eleanor Breeze's practice, where she re-imagines memories and old
photographs to create scenes that may or may not have occurred in the past. The images hint at narrative, but
ultimately remain ambiguous; they are often melancholy, making reference to something lost or just out of reach.

The blurring of past and present is intrinsic to Breeze's work; the imagery spans decades, exploring how the nature
of a place can change after loss, and the physicality of the paint is significant in conveying this. Quick gestural marks
alongside more detailed areas suggest different time frames in the painting process, and disrupt a simple reading of
the image.

As well as working from photographs, Breeze introduces fictional narratives to explore the relationship between the
past and the present, creating a number of ‘what if’ scenarios, and leaving the images treading the line
between fact and imagination. What is unseen holds just as much value as what is seen. Examining how we deal with
family trauma and mourning, each painting is a moment of reflection, as well as an attempt to capture something
intangible.

waves around it and was thinking about it while still looking at it from all possible angles and places.

one evening i realised that the waves could be of the breathes left by visitors over the years. My sense got fixed on
that as i visited the tower again and again over those 7 days. The waves went on intensifying every time i visited it.

Soon as i came back home i had to bring that sensation to the canvas.

Finestra, unchangeable but always becoming, constantly accumulating. We are the window through which two

This artworks are paper sculptures or space drawings, perforated by hand with a needle. Each point is a meaning,

decisions that determinates our path of life, we are an accumulation of points, signs and traces left in time.

There are common points and elements binding us. And our beings communicate and reverberate, in one way or

Website:

Artist Statement: Elisabeth Deane is a painter using ancient traditional techniques to make contemporary work.
Elisabeth’s colours and detailed brushwork are inspired by Islamic geometry and the miniature painting traditions
of Persia and India.

Elisabeth has studied under miniature painters in Rajasthan and learnt much of her craft at the Prince’s School of
Traditional Arts.

“My aim is to yield delight and joy through the geometric arrangement of colour―. Many of the colours are
stone based - lapis lazuli, malachite and cinnabar – and have all been sourced from the earth and then ground
painstakingly by hand. “I am interested in intricate patterns and colour relationships. Natural pigments are
beautiful. I’m aiming for that right combination of colours that when brought together start to create vibrations,
ones that sing.― The abstract geometric nature of her work represents both the simple and the universal, the
micro and the macro and the interplay of these dichotomies.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 65 cm x 65 cm (approx)
Artwork 1 Medium: Gold leaf (23ct), platinum leaf, natural pigments and gum arabic on handmade Indian hemp

Artwork 1 Commentary: ‘On one level, drawing out geometry is a very rational and methodical process while for
me it is also an act of meditation, devotion or connection to both myself and the universe around me.
‘2,040 Stars’ is from a series of paintings based on the same pattern. I am particularly interested in how the
many permutations of colour transform the feeling of a painting, even when the structural lines remain the same.
The repetitive nature of the pattern and the process of thinking through colour choices help to focus and calm my
mind. At its simplest, these things combine to help me connect to the painting process while, on a more profound
level, they reconnect me with the source of existence.
On the macro scale, geometry connects us to order and harmony in the natural world. It is found in a snowflake, in
the petals of a flower, in the proportions of the human body and in the celestial dance of the planets. With this in
mind, geometry is both a drawing tool for shapes and designs while also being a timeless mystery, indicative of the
deeper meaning in our existence.

Artist Statement: All my works are build site specific and can only exist in the environment they are build in.

Materials are always the starting point, the blank canvas. Materials without intrinsic meanings. The construction is
not planned, but rather occur impulsively and intuitively. The materials are permitted to speak for themselves, and
dictate how they shall work together in the final construction. Their attributes are explored and tested with a
childlike sense of wonder. In the same way that children build things, the work is built with no plan, but rather is the
result of the possibilities of the materials at hand.

There are no meanings beyond the forms and the lines and the colours. The materials may be permitted to speak for
themselves, but they do not actually say anything. The same childlike sense of wonder is found again in the
fascination with interpreting simple lines and colours, and making these into a whole. These constructions are never
titled. That which has no meaning needs no title. If it needs a title let it be called “the orange pointy thing in a sea
of construction foam―. There are no explicative titles and no texts involved in the presentation of the work,
because this would influence the viewing, and there is nothing to see through the forms and the lines and the
colours and form their own interpretations.

In the space, destruction is as important as construction, and the objects taken away always leave their trace behind.
These traces in turn form a part of the new work. This derives from ever-changing cityscapes, where construction
and destruction are constantly working together. As with the cityscapes, the work can never truly be seen as
finished: the space is the work and the space is always in flux.

Artist Statement: As a figure painter, I experiment with the basics of painting – the body in space, form, color, and
brushwork. This body of work includes self-portraits, alongside portraits of women in my life. The sensuality of the
life-size figures, approximating 4 x 5 feet on canvas, saturated in reds, purples, whites, and blacks, is complimented
by the urgency of my mark making, varying in thickness and texture. While some of the paintings depict a friend or
family member as the artist’s muse, the others traverse the territory of what it means to be artist and subject.
Each painting is the result of my surrender to the medium and to the process of painting. I paint the women close to
me with color and texture that is raw and stimulating, while the self-portraits allow me to be vulnerable on and in
front of the canvas.

positive new perspectives. Enlightened by the lives of people across the world, her artworks testify that travel is
more than escapism, that we should absorb new places and artifacts until they are fully integrated into our being.
She appreciates the way art and travel promotes improved, longstanding relationships with people and cultures.
Collage became the most fascinating medium to express these convictions, given the array of textures, words and
numbers that create layers of story and symbolism. Her impressionistic style hints at the works of Vincent van Gogh
and Salvador Dali, two artists who pioneered expressions of movement as well as a dreamlike fusion of unrelated

appearances, not daring to stray too far from the uniformity of their comfortable lives, big houses, second homes,
perfect kids, perfect bodies and rich husbands who feed their affluent lifestyles. Women who are not truly in touch
with how the vast majority of people live. Women who do coffee, lunch and gym in between ferrying their kids from

Artist Statement: Abi Whitlock's work focuses predominately on the human form and how the mind and body are
affected when immersed in water. This is mirrored by the way light is refracted and reflected, distorting and
enhancing colour and shape. Whitlock captures the way entering the water enables the swimmer to enter an altered
state of mind; a form of escapism from the real world.

Her inspiration comes from a recent move to coastal Devon, trips to the beach and outdoor pools. The way she
works puts great emphasis on minute detail. This imparts every aspect of the painting with value and depth which in
turn gives the observer the sense that they themselves are becoming immersed along with the swimmer.

Although Whitlock works in a hyperrealist style; the way she paints water creates natural abstraction within her
pieces. Water and its interplay with light generate unusual, distorted and complex patterns, altering the perception
of everyday images.

Luc Pheles’ ink-based abstract drawings are portals into a dimension, where streams of the conscious
manipulation of space and unconscious impulses converge. In this universe, the artist explores the mystical relations
of form and non-form, space and cluster, order and disorder. Every art piece manifests the artist's desire to reconcile
and accept the dual nature of existence, thereby alluding to his pursuit of completeness.

Artwork 1 Title: Woman of Colour
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 51x41x1
Artwork 1 Medium: Acrylic on canvas
Artwork 1 Commentary: Here is a self portrait, reflecting on my 2018.

After being on a path of self discovery in 2018, I began to embrace is my identity as a black woman. The vibrant
colours of my skin shine like a light in the darkness, illustrating myself coming out of the darkness of feeling
unattractive, unimportant, not valuable, and into the light of loving myself as a Woman of Colour.

I have incorporated my heartbreak on the bottom left, and above that, painted running legs to represent me running
my first 5k race in 2018. The number 15 is written in the trees on the top left to represent the 15 trees I planted that
year to play my part in helping the environment (after experiencing the effects of global warming whilst I
volunteered in Cambodia for 3 months in 2017). The blue background image was taken from when I went to Italy,
and there is the presence of a rotated Thailand flag at the top of the right hand side as I went on holiday there also
last year. The First Aid symbol on right side represents the First Aid training's I completed during the year, whilst the
telephone on bottom right represents me gaining my current job as a 999 call handler.
Acrylic paints were used to allow me to layer on bright and bold colours reflecting the vibrancy of my year.

The triangle represents my journey of self growth and trying to reach my peak. The triangle doesn’t connect at
the top, to demonstrate that this journey is incomplete.

Artwork 1 Title: When Inside happens Outside
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 40x70
Artwork 1 Medium: acrylics
Artwork 1 Commentary: Work "When Inside happend Outside' depicts a problem of self-tolerance, accepting oneself
and especially focusing on a face as a soul-mirror. Whole process of painting were a big challenge for me as well. For
about two weeks, day by day I was spending couple of hours analyzing my face, gaze, breath, but also shadows, light
changing, making a decisions, coping with silence, with my unperfections and fighting with my naive thoughts of how
I look like. It reminds me of a process of knowing someone new, of falling in love, accepting despite drawbacks, for
someting bigger. That's what a self-portrait is for me - a meeting.

Artist Statement: My research explores (with)drawing, in two complementary forms: hundreds of small sketches on
paper ; and, large-scale “alternative― drawings - collective wall-drawings, semi-automatic long-durational
performance-drawing, live drawing in theatre...
At the root of all my work is my daily drawing practice, notably making one image per day, which I have done every
day for the last 3 years. I then transform these into further drawings through processes of enlargement, translation
and repetition. They are presented in narrative clusters, and make connections in all directions, where each
individual drawing can be moved to be part of another cluster which gives it new meaning.
My subjects : the ordinary (part-)body, human, animal or otherworldly, altered, twisted or gone wrong ; and
repetition through growth or patterns, geometric, vegetal or organic. I have no interest in representing anything
seen but rather am interested in things gone mad and bodies gone wrong.
My most recent research concerns long-durational performance-drawing which consists in working intensely,
(with)drawing for several hours per day in a methodical drawing activity. Through this kind of on-going private
performance I am interested in the way that drawings, even when made in isolation, still comprise a performance
aspect to them.Â
Ultimately my drawing practice is about creative resistance : a « slowly but surely » way of resisting the
everyday through a creative act. For me this takes the form of “(with)drawing―: drawing to the point of
withdrawing.

Artist Statement: The submitted work deals with a development in which urbanity increasingly becomes an
autonomous clockwork where associated automation and algorithmization threaten people's autonomy and self-
determination.

The bounded dynamics of the deserted construction site in Death Star make the determination physically tangible,
precisely because of the lack of people, the conditions for the human being in this environment are questioned. It
could thus create an awareness of the automatisms and intransparency of algorithmic thinking that ultimately leads
to the loss of democratic opportunities.

Artist Statement: Art & science has always played an important part within Dallas’ work whether it is science
fiction or science fact. His sculptural work explores a diverse range of concepts and varying materials that include
wood, foam, bronze and glass. The world he depicted has a sense of fluidity, and a commonality, where everything
could be made of the same substance. There is always a feeling that matter; while temporarily taking on certain
forms, could be transient and capable of morphing into something else. The order and disorder he weaves into his
work is a manifestation of mass, energy and entropy, distilled down to its true essence. This gives the viewer a sense
of wonderment of the things that sometimes reside behind the mirror and not always in front.

Artwork 1 Commentary: Approximately 11.5 thousand years ago humans took the first steps towards an agricultural
society, with the domestication of Einkorn grain.

Long considered the beginning of 'civilisation', in fact this cultural change destroyed the freedom of the human race
as hunter gatherers. Yoking us to the fields and the ensuing slavery of production whether, slavery, feudal or free-
market.

The narrative of agriculture as a civilising force is a myth, it has only becone a leech on humanity.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 594 × 841

Artwork 1 Commentary: "I wish I were British" is a series of self-portraits investigating the relationship between
personal identity and freedom of movement.

I moved to London with my partner five years ago. We were able to come and stay here thanks to our Italian
passport. The UK seemed to offer good opportunities and we decided to invest our time, energy, and money in this
country. Then Brexit happened.

This project is my own way of processing the experience of Brexit and the state of uncertainty that we, as EU
migrants, find ourselves in. More broadly, "I wish I were British" is about the rights and privileges we are entitled to
on the basis of our nationality. I looked at this from an artistic perspective and, for how impossible it is, I imagined
that wearing a "British celebrity mask" could be enough to become a British citizen.

Artist Name: Simon Beer


Website: www.beeronline.ch

Artist Statement: Life is Art enough


The motif of seduction and the staging of supposed paradises are a constant in Simon Beer's oeuvre. Guided by the
performance art of the 1970s, in particular the Living Sculpture, he initially organized cooking and eating happenings.
The focus was on pleasure and enjoyment, as well as on the staging of social and communicative spaces.

Subsequently, he worked with means from advertising and communication by re-staging "found objects" (objets
trouvés) of a superficial consumer world (Barbie dolls, his teddy bears, which he called "Gilbert & George", etc.)
and presenting them as sculptures and installations.

For over 25 years, his reflections on sculpture have been a recurring theme, dominating all his works.

Beer's works are characterized by an aesthetic that is oriented towards the interchangeable promises of advertising.
The artist appropriates these mechanisms in conceptual works and likes to move on the terrain between cult and
cliché, pathos and provocation. However, his seductions often lead to disillusionment and demystification: the
motif of transience is omnipresent - sometimes anchored in references to Western art and cultural history, just as
often metaphorically.

Artwork 1 Title: Somebody takes care about me 2018
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 21 photographs 125x165cm each
Artwork 1 Medium: photographie / sculpture
Artwork 1 Commentary: The buoys on Simon Beer's 21 photographs (125 x 165 cm, lambda prints) are relics from a
different time. They were all made between the end of the 19th century and the 1960s, weigh between 400 and
1200 kg, are welded or riveted. As in classical object photography, the bodies are illuminated neutrally, they float
freely in space and reveal their beauty of form and surface condition down to the last detail; a number indicates the
coordinates - longitude and latitude - of the last place of use. Basically, however, they are portraits of buoys whose
lives are written in their faces. Not only the pure external appearance is depicted here, Simon Beer lets its actual
essence emerge. In addition, he gives them feminine-masculine, French double names - Marie-Baptiste, Laure-
Dominique, Marie-Stéphane, Anne-Edouard, Marie-Eugène, Lise-Claude, Jeanne-Alix - thus making them even
more recognizable as independent personalities.

Artist Statement:
ALTERED is a body of photographic work that challenges our assumptions of beauty, what it means to be whole, and
what it means to be human. It focuses attention on a community of people who have unwillingly embarked on life-
changing body alterations due to illness, war, accidents and violence. The intention is to illuminate people who are
often marginalised, and contribute to conversations around equality and diversity. By crossing boundaries between
various photographic genres and merging a contemporary fashion aesthetic with a social-documentary focus, subject
matter and practice, the work asks the viewer to explore themselves through the prism of others, to challenge or
confirm their belief system regarding body-image and its representation, and to strive to be more compassionate
and loving towards everyone by embracing our differences. Furthermore, the process of making these works also
aims to help individuals regain confidence and reclaim their identity, embracing the practice of the ‘therapeutic
gaze’ – whereby photography is used to assist people in redefining their identity, nurturing positive attitudes in
relation to their physical appearance and providing them with a visual voice to state with confidence, ‘I am
here’. Ultimately, both the process and the photographs themselves aim to be human.

Artist Statement: I come from Korea, a country with a historic tradition of ceramics, where I was a fashion designer. I
emigrated to England in 2007, the first time I had set foot outside Asia. Learning English from scratch and being
influenced by the radical change in culture I went back to being an artist, which was always my first calling. Starting
with life drawing and experimenting with other media, I found myself drawn to my cultural roots in ceramics, mixing
the two. In 2013 I made bowls and sketched live models drawing directly onto the contoured surfaces, combining
the organic hand-moulded form of the bowl with the human form of the model. A couple of years later I began to
add imagery to the pieces to extend the narratives that began with the poses, seeking inspiration from what I found
captured in the drawings.
In Asian culture bowls are philosophically connected with humanity; for example in Korea we might talk about how
big a bowl you have in your mind, so the bowl is holding all your knowledge and experience. I mould the bowls in my
hands and I draw straight onto them, with no plan, never changing a line. Drawing directly onto these with a life
model, with a human in front of me, I can be led by their energy and afterwards see what of human life can fit into a
bowl. What I found drove me to use imagery on top to draw out stories imagined from the lives.

Artist Statement: I'm a self-taught, multi-disciplined artist (for the last 2 years) and I enjoy working in acrylic with a
palette knife and ink/watercolour. I paint primarily with a palette knife because I love the texture and random
effects I can achieve. I tend to also use a bright colour palette because that's what appeals to me. I enjoy portraying
strong women who appear fearless, but not cocky. Self-assured but not egotistical. I believe that speaking up for
ourselves, particularly as women is vitally important and portraying women as such in my art is important to me. I
also love to work in ink and watercolour - sketching without planning to see where it takes me. More often than not
I'm happy with the random, 'raw' result. I'm loving my art journey and believe I've improved and evolved
significantly in the past two years. I'm constantly inspired by all the amazing art that is being produced by other
artists and wish I'd painted a long time ago. I didn't realise what I was capable of and it brings me immense joy to
both paint/draw and look at the work of others. I've definitely found my calling!

pleasng. It's a portrait of a strong--willed woman who knows her own mind and isn't afraid of expressing herself. I
think her 'not to be messed with' gaze is rather apparent. There's always a little part of me in the personality of my
paintings - my strong-will and individuality being apparent here.

will only see the beauty if you really look. The amount of colour, the variety and relationship of these colours, as well
as their positioning, give each bird its unique, characteristic plumage.

In a year-and-a-half’s time, we made 25 graphic reflections (each 25 cm x 25 cm) of birds living in the
Netherlands. The works are abstract compositions of square colour fields. We made them using the most basic
shape: rectangles. We tried to find the perfect composition with the right amount of colour while keeping the birds
recognizable.Â

The exhibition shows the 25 BLOCBIRDS (grid 5x5). In front of them you will find a display table which also has a

After working as an activity coordinator with people who suffer from the disease dementia -majority were women -I
became inspired by 'Fidget blankets'. Fidget blankets are quilted blankets with memorabilia and different textures.
This has been proven to relieve anxiety and stimulate their minds. Fidgeting and feeling restless is a common trait for
dementia sufferers.

I want my work to commemorate the wonderful women I worked with as well as a close family friend Ann-Beth who
also suffered from Alzheimer's. Ann-Beth was my mother's childhood friend who was an art therapist and inspired
and encouraged me to proceed with a career in art, she also supported me using art with personal issues when I was
a child but sadly passed away in 2017. I have been lucky to be surrounded by inspirational, strong women thus my
wall hanging is dedicated to them.

My textile sculpture can be exhibited hanging from nylon or as a video installation. However would feel that the

Artist Statement: Photography is the catalyst that begins my creative process of constant search and discovery.
Experimentation allows me to reflect and represent the internal and external world and achieve personal
transformation.
In recent years part of my photographic works have focused on decadence, the passing of time and brevity,

My professional career as Interior designer and Multidisciplinary artist led me to recreate an immersive and
unsettling atmosphere a duality of sensations, creating feelings such as isolation.

I intend to create more questions than answers, to provoke a certain unease; but, mainly I want to show the fragility
and vulnerability of people, as well as the fortitude of the human condition. Poetic language envelops the artwork of
timeless images, ambiguous and enigmatic, and at the same time evocative.

What one hopes to achieve with my artwork is the viewer to take an unhurried journey, and in this way inspect and
share the sensations and emotions , leaving ayone indifferent.

Artist Statement: I am an artist based in Sydney, Australia. I am passionate about creating paintings to express my
philosophies, feelings and experiences.

My major admiration is Vincent Van Gogh. I love the emotional expressiveness of Van Gogh's painting and I am
instantly drawn to him as if he is someone I know and from my time.

In this stage of my journey I am open to all possibilities to create and express, and therefore I am not part of any
"ism".

Artwork 1 Title: Revival of Pallas Athena
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 120.5 x 86.4 x 4.3
Artwork 1 Medium: Oil on Canvas
Artwork 1 Commentary: Pallas Athena in this artwork is expressed without her masculinity, usually symbolised by
her shining armour as goddess of wisdom and war.

Here she is striped naked to the core as if this is her reincarnation, although she was always there. She has returned
to embrace of her creative intelligence.

Now, in this moment, as vulnerable as any first instances of life, she is awakened despite the struggles and
difficulties encountered by the process in this mystical world.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 76.2 x 50.8 cm
Artwork 1 Medium: oil on canvas
Artwork 1 Commentary: Working with such an elderly subject, I really wanted to bring the portrait to life, by
highlighting the warm pink undertones of her skin and the subtle smile in her eyes. This seemed more important due
to the relationship between myself and the subject, my grandmother. Despite me being unable to speak Punjabi,
and her lack of English, we have always managed to communicate, through gestures and the mere presence of each
other's company. I hope to have captured this unique closeness, and the warmth of the subject, as well as her
strength and pride as the matriarch of our family.

Artist Statement: I trained as a painter at Grimsby School of Art and Wolverhampton Polytechnic. On leaving
Polytechnic I worked as a practising Fine Artist exhibiting widely in the UK. These included exhibitions at the Usher
Gallery, Lincoln, Worcester Museum and Art Gallery and Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery. I have work in public
collections at Lincoln and Shrewsbury.
As a younger painter I found success in painting from the landscape being inspired by the raw nature of North East
Lincolnshire, my native home and later the Shropshire hills.
I have taught art and design in Further Education since 1987. The teaching grew and led to a twenty year break in
producing work.
More recently I have returned to painting and have found this break has led me onto new figurative paths. My
interest has been reawakened through a commission to paint a friends portrait. This has led to the development of
a renewed interest in the human figure.
My new paintings are concerned with figuration and the representation of the world. I am interested in composition
and the way that colour, line, mark and texture can be used to evoke a narrative or emotion.
I am inspired by the beginning of this new phase of my painting journey.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 100cm x 70 cm x 3cm
Artwork 1 Medium: Acrylic on board
Artwork 1 Commentary: This is a portrait of a friend and mature student. The title reflects both her artistic interest
in Duchamp and this particular moment in her life. The standard stoppages to her creative journey are family, the
past and worries about what her creative future will be like.
She looks out of the frame to the future in a hesitant manner. The past lies behind and the present, in the form of a
photograph of her husband and her paint brushes lie on her lap, anchoring her to the moment. The emerald green
dress, a reference to her Irish roots.
The visual barrier of the line made by the window and the tree become a metaphor for the obstacles that lie ahead.

Artwork 1 Commentary: This painting I created in Thailand after a month of travelling around Asia. It is showing
woman as a strong individual who has lost her hands as a metafor for doing prostitution unwillingly under someones
"protection". As a woman I hated the fact that so many little girls in young age must become prostitutes to save their
families from starving. After this I created series of silk paintings that are supposed to make those girls and woman
look like goddesses that lost something from them. Someone we should look up to and be a little afraid of.

Artist Name: Emily Moore


Website: http://emilymooreart.com
IG: https://www.instagram.com/emilymooreart/

Artist Statement: Emily Moore is a Scottish artist interested in the patterns and forms found within mountainous
environments and the contrasting, architectural structures which inhabit them. Her paintings attempt to explore the
tension between these two conflicting themes, looking to strike a balance within the final composition.

Landscape has always been a primary source of inspiration for Moore. Her work is created using an amalgamation of
personal images, usually photographs taken to record her travels. Each body of work is a documentation of those
experiences, the creative process allowing Moore to recall each place and combine them to create new, anonymous
landscapes.

The physical act of creating a piece, the surface and materials, has always been an important part of Moore's
practice. She works directly onto birch plywood panels, often leaving areas of the raw wood exposed. Moore
experimented a lot with screenprinting during her time at Edinburgh College of Art and throughout a semester at
Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Since then Moore developed her own process, using masking tape and a
scalpel to create the layered, tonal images similarly achieved through printing. Moore often uses an overhead
projection for the intricate, detailed images, which are then drawn and cut-out by hand. A laborious process which
allows her to combine the precise, detailed layers over the rough, painterly ones.

Since graduating Moore has shown her work internationally as well as regularly exhibiting at the Annual Royal
Scottish Academy Open Exhibitions. In 2016 Moore won the Royal Scottish Academy Guthrie Award and in 2018 was
shortlisted as one of twenty six global finalists for the Rise Art Prize where she was awarded Rise Art Painter of the
Year. Later in 2018 Moore was announced as a finalist for the Zealous Emerge Art Awards and was also long-listed
for the Aesthetica Art Prize.

Artist Statement: At this point in my work, I am interested in exploring the tension of being a creative person and a
mother. In both roles, I am a creator. The two roles are at times in conflict and at times one feeds the process of the
other. This is a relatable tension, and connects me to a large audience. The source material for my work often
includes old family photographs, and in fact I often combine references of photos from many years ago with current
photos that I have taken, as well as completely made up elements in order to craft a narrative for my piece. My
process involves making several loose colour sketches before planning a final piece. This stage is critical, because it
allows for happy accidents. I must allow the medium itself to speak, as watercolor has a mind of its own that I find
to be an inspiring and important element in my work. I am also inspired by texture, and transparency. I am
interested in the commonality of human experience, and what connects us as people. My work is a bridge that goes
between myself and my past, and between my inner world and the viewer.

Artist Statement: In my project I sculpted a porcelain woman without limbs, wearing a dress that I have crafted out
of dried glue. Scattered around her are her broken limbs.

My project adresses the topic of the ideal of beauty. I feel that society judges people, especially women, based on
how they look. Society idolizes an unattainable image of beauty, this often makes women feel uncomfortable with
their looks.
In my opinion, the standarts of beauty today are very limited, centered on external qualities alone- what can cause a
mental break, impair self confidence and may lead to depression and anorexia.

At first glance, my sculpture reflects an ideal beauty, but a second glance reveals it's broken nature. It's shattered
limbs symbolize the mental break of a woman who has strived to reach an unreachable goal.
The translucent dress made of dried glue represents the artificial, which relates to the use of plastic surgeries to
reconstruct a woman's look.
I chose the medium porcelain because it is often connected with the highest levels of beauty, but it is also a meterial
that is highly breakable.

I believe that in order to make our world a better place, we mustn't expect people to look according to external
codes. We have to encourage everyone to feel confident with the way they look.
I think we shouldn't judge people on the basis of how they look, but on the basis of who they really are.

Artist Statement: Born in 1964 in the south of Germany, near the Swiss border, Ingrid Lindemann initially devoted
herself intensively to her family obligations and used her creativity primarily in the education of her sons and in the
professional environment first in the analytical supervision of research and development of medical devices, later in
the quality control in a pharmaceutical company. In favor of sculptureng Ingrid has reduced her working time in her
civilian career.

For several years she had a working place at the Bildhauerhof in Berglen Streich by Michael Schützenberger, who
introduced her to the basics of sculpturing. At the same time she took drawing lessons in life drawing with Sibylle
Bross. Workshops in life modeling, stone casting and dealing with the chainsaw at the Art School Waiblingen
complete the profile.

Currently she has a working place at the Art School Waiblingen in the sculpture class.

Themes are the archetypal feminine, sensuality, eros, the life-giving as well as changes and transience.

The silent dialogue with the stone or another material is like an intensive meditation for her. The exit from everyday
life and immersion in the "here and now" fills her with humility and great luck.

It always tempts her to use new techniques or other materials, to learn new things and to combine them with the
existing knowledge, to live the experiment "art".

Artist Statement: Working with oil paints, my work is heavily influenced by abstract art, particular that of the
abstract expressionists, yet subtly touching upon landscape and narrative suggestions. During the process of painting
I take most of my inspiration from the piece I have produced previously. I feel as though this way of working has
allowed my work to develop in a very considered manner whilst also allowing the element of my subconscious to
have a heavy influence over the work. I want my work to carry an ambiguous yet atmospheric tone whilst being
open to many different interpretations. Playing with the idea of narrative is extremely important to me and is often
done through experimenting with composition. Themes such as movement, space and energy are prominent
throughout the paintings.
Often the visual elements of my work such as colour and tone are taken from quick blurred snapshots of unique
and spontaneous moments, often studied prior to painting but never worked from directly. I feel as though this way
of working retains the possibility for unique changes within the work, it often encourages changes in the way I use
the oil paint itself. I remain excited to see where my work will go in the future and look forward continuing the
language and themes which have developed already within my paintings.

summary of me. I've been drawing since I was three. My preferred medium is graphite pencil, but I'm also working

but I'm doing sketches and academic studies as best as I can on my own. I'm also working in ink sometimes, but I'm
not as skilled with it as well, although I'm practicing.
I'm currently visiting some sort of an art high school. In my opinion they have quite limited knowledge to pass on,
but because this is the only art school program in our country, it was the only choice I had.

Artist Statement: Greg Bromley is an artist from East Yorkshire in England. He feels his work is a form of
anthropomorphic Surrealism from a self-taught Outsider perspective. Bromley is influenced by thoughts of
Multiverse, Quantum physics, Sci-Fi and fantastic creatures. Bromley sites his influences amongst Jean Michael
Basquiat, Victor Brauner and Leonora Carrington. Bromley also cites tribal art from regions in Africa and Oceania
being a big influence on his thinking. Bromley has been a Social Worker for 24 years and has experienced bouts of
depression and anxiety as a consequence of his work experiences. He cites these experiences as been an influence in
his paintings narratives; he also uses his art as a way of escaping from his corrosive career.

Bromley works with mixed media; He uses acrylic paints and inks, Sennelier oil pastels, spray paint, pencil and
homemade collage on canvas.

Bromley exhibited with works by Scottie Wilson at Pallant House Gallery in Chichester May 2018; the European
Outsider art conference also took place at the exhibition launch. He completed five large pieces in response to the

Artist Name: Peter Marrack


Website:

Artist Statement: My painting expresses a fascination with the abstract, in particular colour, aesthetic (in particular
minimalism) and spirituality. The paintings themselves, their use of household supplies, such as Latex house paint,
seem to call to attention the fluidity of what is apparent before our eyes, as well as, quite literally, the superficiality.
The use of a split design with two shades explores relationships between colours, between light and shade, and
basks in the random element as when the paint is applied (poured). All of which, represents deeper spiritual views of
the artist concealed and denied to the viewer. The substance, notably the intrigue, is in the denial, the refusal, the
holding back. It is a form of gesture, or in another context, devotion (through sacrifice), by the artist when dealing
with the process of creating and exhibiting. The paintings aim to please the viewer, as well as empower them to
create their own meanings and narrative in the slight diversion to line, or “inaccuracies― in the surface of the
painting. At the same time it is a blatant confrontation, or provocation, tempting the viewer to form a definitive
perspective that can never be that, definitive. In that way the paintings are like dreams and night terrors at once,
manipulatable but also manipulative. They are a mirror of life.

Artist Statement: Looking at relationships between nature and farming, my work observes the cyclical patterns of
energy within the land. As the daughter of a farmer in rural Wales, I have watched throughout my life the vital
balance between agriculture and nature.

The energy cycles within the land are supportive of this relationship, everything is so interconnected that almost all
of nature is reliant on these energy webs. The way that the sun and the rain ensure the growth of grass, which feeds
the ewe, which in turn nurtures her foetus with the placenta until the gestation period is over, and it is left on the
field after birth. Then it will either feed other predators, or, if ignored, it will seep back into the ground, which will
help the grass to grow, and feed another ewe.

The relationship between agriculture and nature is variously subtle and tricky, nature must take its course, but
interference is vital at times of sickness or injury. Rotational grass management is an intervention, but allows for
better, stronger grass growth, which supports the whole surrounding ecosystem.

The use of farming and natural materials in my work is vital to my process, I want to create colours and textures that
emulate nature, not an exact representation. Using oil paints, linseed oil, stand oil and turps to create a thinner
paint, and beeswax for an impasto texture, I incorporate sheep’s wool into the painting, mirroring the various
relationships in nature by bringing these different textures and substances together.

Artist Statement: My work focuses on the betrayal of reason in the post-modern age, it does this primarily by
presenting simple and commonplace things in contrast with absurd things. For this I use a Rubens underpainting
style to draw Hogarthian foibles: Faustian foibles of temptation and real arrogance, jealousy and terror.

Artwork 1 Medium: Acrylic on polycotton bedsheet (William Morris print)
Artwork 1 Commentary: My work explores the relationship between pre-modern and post-modern art. Through a
focus on storytelling, this takes the shape of large monochromatic crowds, involving many commonplace activities
and interactions.
The loose plot of this series of works is an excerpt from Dostoevsky’s “Notes from the Underground―, a
book primarily about the bitter, spiteful feeling that an unfair world conjures up in people.
I have filled this series with references to the jokes and fallacies of art education and institutional art and in a bid to
juxtapose practical modern and uncertain post-modern philosophy I present absurd relationships like cartoon "little
my" to Saint Martin sharing his cigarettes.

Artist Statement: Through my current work I seek to capture observational moments of my own experience of
everyday British family life, which I often find amusing. As a result, the people in my current paintings are only
friends and family. This allows me to really depict the world I live in and to convey a sense of affection which is lost
when painting strangers. It is very important for me to have a connection with the sitters and the environment in
which I am observing them due to the intimate nature of the paintings.
These are scenes to which many may be able to relate and perhaps the viewer can chuckle at the familiarity.
Painting the domestic interior, I capture the relationships between people, as well as the relationship between the
people and their environment. Large in size, the viewer can feel they are part of the scene. The titles, often ironic,
emphasise the humour I find in the scene, as well as reflecting my own sense of humour.

Artist Statement: My work mainly derives from the interplay of fact and fiction, photographic documentation and
memory. I work from multiple photographic references but, through the act of painting, introduce the
hues and influences of my memory into the moments photographed. Any one moment, despite the
meaning of the word, is not stand-alone but an amalgamation of occurrences and experiences that have
led to the moment and that, afterwards, continue to change and distort the memory of that moment in
our minds. Painting allows me to revisit and edit these moments – captured neutrally by a camera but
open to imaginative hypothesizing on a viewer’s part – to bring out the many invisible narratives that
usually underpin the guardedness of a photograph.

paintings, concept are my motivator and subject of my work are all inspired from my personal experiences. My work
is based on the incidents or happenings around me especially are about male towards male genders and their
relations to one another, their identities, identity crises, imperfections, struggles, passions and about the
achievement of ultimate goals. Sometimes it is something I see during travelling or while talking to anybody and
sometimes it is something I observe while reading anything. I try to paint what I feel.
Thusly, the underlining inspiration of my creativity comes from the culture of my surroundings. I enjoy the city
culture and the diversity of people influenced by it. I am trying to study new perspectives of human interaction and

Artwork 1 Commentary: Silent conversations between the male genders in society and studies the unbalanced
nature of the hierarchy amongst men. These hierarchies, which in my opinion are questionable, have become norms
accepted and followed by society. I unpack these muted conversations by using facial expressions and hand
gestures, which are considered masculine and at times, aggressive. Compositional elements such as chiaroscuro and
the use of forms that appear obscured or unrevealed are employed to heighten the mystery and sinister mood
within the works.

"Module1_[Sprout]" is a mixed new media installation comprised of hand-tufted material (carpet), touch-responsive
technology, robotics, and steel. Inspired by the physiology of a Venus Flytrap, the work explores themes such as soft
power and control, artificial life as both living and failing, and post-human feminisms that materialise in a mirroring
or mimicry of organic matter. Here, there is also consideration of Rosi Braidotti's concept of agency based on 'zoe',
where both human and non-human matter is capable of self-organising and possessing intelligence.

Artist Statement: This project is a series of 10 large scale Unique Prints called Self – Portraits. It asks a simple
question, what is the true identity of our beloved human race? The self-portrait in my works is not just aÂ
depiction of my being or my sole experiences, but is the collective voice of the crowd.

The crowd that does not stand as an individual entity but a collective measure, to illustrate the struggle
between form and formlessness, abstraction and representation. It asks an important question to all of humanity:
why do we restrict ourselves so much to our bodies and mind, that we don’t think of anything that can exist
beyond matter? Forcing us to differentiate between gender, sexuality, race, caste, creed, disability and class. Even if,
at the end of the day we are all the same and ‘one’ from within.

I mostly uses drawing and printmaking in my art. In doing so, my intention is to challenge the conventions of
drawing. I am also interested to see how my drawings get reproduced through the action of printing across a
different surface. I feel this creates a tension between the hand drawn and mechanically reproduced and lends itself
to different experiences of the image.

•Materials: Sand, wood veneer, Aso-Oke (Loom woven textile), coins, plastics, and seeds

In this instance, I have tried to mix and transpose two profound legendary and spiritual narratives to create a
phantasmagoric version parallel to the two. The two narratives are the triumphant entry of Jesus to Jerusalem and
Alice in Wonderland. The idea of penetrating or crossing one narrative with the other struck me as rather irresistible
largely because I wanted to experience the actors in the stories in other narratives in equally subliminal
circumstances. Furthermore, I also wanted to explore the transitory development of the stories as a whole in the
face of changing cultural narratives, perceptions, and codes. How do they play out and engage with the present
consciousness of the cultural mind in relation to other narratives, shifting paradigms and values?

A.S/Synopsis-
I work mostly with found materials on my surfaces. My narratives are inspired by the poetics of congregating these
dissimilar textures and materials. I can describe my work as an experimental collage involving a range of in-between
processes and methods. And I love employing humor and absurdities in my narratives. The focus in my Art is on
translating displaced objects to a further state of meaning and symbolic essence thereby creating a 're-entry' into
the flow of cultural transactions. I consider my work to be a sort of storytelling but one grounded in narratives and
real social endemic tensions.

Artist Statement: Art, for me, is practical philosophy. Art can reveal the philosophy that we barely can convey by
languages. Moreover, art has the power to skip the critical filtration of human beings and directly hit the deep
consciousness. I have a deep interest in human nature. Through my works, I reveal human natures, such as freedom,
craziness, loneliness, happiness, and love.

Human beings are hateful creatures. They are eager to grow, and then lament the loss of childhood. They exchange
health for money, and then want to resume health with money. They have endless anxiety for the future, but ignore
the current happiness. Therefore, they neither live in this moment, nor live in the future. They act like they will never
die when they are alive, but seem to have never lived before their deaths. However, human beings, at the same
time, are lovely creatures. Despite all the limitations of human beings, they still live their lives with enthusiasm. This
contradiction is exactly what I want to put forward to audiences with my art.

Artist Statement: I am an artist making abstract sculptures in clay. My current body of work investigates the subjects
of exile and loss of continuity with a collective past.

Displacement have been a recurring trait in my family. Currently living abroad, I'm often exposed to the challenges
to connect with a place I wasn’t born into and the difficulty to express this experience. My legacy and current
life make me particularly sensitive to these experiences we keep silent, the unspoken negotiations with our past that
make us who we are.

My work tries to give form to something that is not tangible in the first place. I needed a material that would allow
me to create a variety of forms in order to give a shape to the subjects I explore. Ceramics is the material of choice
for me as its fluidity gives me the freedom I need.

In response to being interested in memories, loss, sense of belonging, I am fascinated by objects or any tangible
marks that bear the traces of existence and define our human identities. I am drawn into the beauty of the details,
the remnants of the past, any trace that can be used to voice the silence.

In the studio, I surround myself with bric-Ã -brac, pieces I make and break, found objects, metal. Those fragmented
stories constitute the vocabulary I use to create my work. The final pieces look like debris of something gone,
intriguing objects found on the archaeological site of our memories.

Artwork 1 Commentary: Work produced for the Grey Planet series reflects the incalculable absurdity of a global
economy fundamentally at odds with our shared ecology – the [im]material flows of commerce, a fiction of
progress constructed from pure exceptionalism. We the first of the last men trade more than futures; these
transactions create a terminal velocity in which we attempt to live a myth not yet even imagined. We are faced then
with a new and inescapable reality, in which the world-wide blindness of our impact is matched only by the eco-
anxiousness of the few. Willingness alone simply produces an artifice of meaning and self-indulgent virtue signalling
– conflicted anxieties of which I am equally guilty.

Artist Statement: This work aims to present the beauty of flesh. Multiple colours and layers of oil paint help build up
to form an intricate lattice of veins, blood and skin. This has helped me create a raw, poignant and honest painting,
that attempts to get to some essence of what it is to be human. I strive for the portrait to confront the viewer with
this honesty and allow them to reflect on their feelings toward the human body whilst scrutinising one. By placing
the figure in an undefined space, void of background objects, forces the viewer to focus on the subject.

Artist Name: Felicity Meachem


Website: https://www.felicitymeachem.com

Artist Statement: Burgeoning with an overload of pattern, initially my work explores whether the decorative has a
place within contemporary Fine Art Painting. While pattern can still signify twee, kitsch, the degenerate and the
feminine, all of the old disparagements imposed against it, with the right use of decoration in painting I believe it can
be evocative, multivalent, and empowering.

Images sourced or appropriated from different cultures define the subject matter in my paintings. Such as Parisian
tile patterns, Japanese Kimono and iconic African Dutch wax prints. This is in order to create a utopian world where
all cultures can live in harmony. My work highlights the unavoidability of politics. I’m aware that by contrasting
and balancing different cultural iconographies, from western to non-western patterning, it can be quite contentious.
Especially with its relation to ‘Orientalism’. However, in opposition to this I wish to investigate the complexity
of cross-cultural fertilization. And I strongly believe that internationalism of pattern work is a cultural fabric that
overlaps.

Homi K Bhabha’s central idea of ‘hybridity’, an emergence of new cultural forms from multiculturalism,
is a central theme in this painting. This term presents a creative way of expressing cosmopolitanism and
eclecticism. In postcolonial discourse, the notion that any culture or identity is pure or essential is disputable.
Bhabha argues that all forms of culture are continually in a process of hybridity. This I have learnt from my own
encounter with an individual who felt strongly that a pattern within my painting was Islamic and from their culture,
when in fact it was of Chinese origin. This shows that through the scope of someone living in the 21st century,
authorship is lost in translation.

Artist Statement: I am currently in the midst of a body of work based around the practice of meditation within the
Buddhist context which is a combination of digital printing, sculpture and installation. My inspiration for working in
this context stems from my personal chronic disease caused by anxiety. I aim to create a sensory experience which
stimulates all human senses. In an intimate sense, I realized the value of the present moment for spiritual oneness
and I become interested in how to concentrate on the moment and stillness. My artistic process is made up of
various methods which all aim to gain harmony between mind and body.

I have built on my research and interest around remedy and the body, particularly in relation to balance and well-
being. The sculpture and installation in terms of the resolution of my ideas, and I casted my own body as a medium.
This surreal human figure sculpture is a self-portrait. Through this work, I intend to represent the physiological states
about unstable mental states and alienation caused from imbalanced relation with external factors. I am interested
in the concept of Chinese medicine, which is based on the idea that the cause of all diseases is imbalance. If various
events that people will experience in their life and force from the outside break the balance of emotion, one
emotion become heavily and the flow of energy is changed. The basin in my work has two taps, one is for hot water
and the other one is for cold water. For me those two taps have different temperature could be juxtaposed meaning
of balance or Imbalance.Â

Artist Statement: Chloe Wells is a London based Artist who graduated from University of the Arts London in 2018
with First Class Honours in Technical Arts and Special Effects. Her work has been powered by a curiosity in grieving
conventions and contemporary attitudes towards death since her eldest sister’s death in 2010. Emily died at the
age of 18 having lived with complex health complications since birth. Witnessing someone with such vitality, a
marked presence and influence in Chloe’s life, become so suddenly and permanently absent from it, altered her
perception of life and death entirely.

Anatomical and medical research has also shaped the way in which Chloe looks to create work. The artist herself has
Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and spends time in the hospitals she grew accustomed to with her sister.

Sculpture has been a storytelling device and coping mechanism for Chloe, and allows her to transform her grief into
something more universally understood. She hopes that her work enables people to start conversations about death
and their own experiences of grieving.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 167x100x50cm
Artwork 1 Medium: Jesmonite
Artwork 1 Commentary: IN MEMORIAM - Finding solace in grief through art.

Artist Chloe Wells’ latest work, a lifesize Jesmonite sculpture of a woman entitled In Memoriam, is a project
which started with Chloe’s own exploration of grief and mourning following the death of her sister Emily. Yet as
In Memoriam grew, and the story of the project became public, so too did the sculpture’s connection to others
with similar experiences of grief.

Chloe’s ambition is for In Memoriam to provide a public space for those in mourning to remember those they
have loved and lost in an environment separate from their daily lives. Although inspired in her work by the Victorian
memorials in West Norwood cemetery, it is not bound by religion or tradition and acts as a visual starting point in
the discussion of death in the modern day.

Speaking of the inspiration for her work, Chloe observes that, “something which struck me in particular, was how
everyone felt the impact of her death except for Emily herself ― her death belonged to everyone but her, yet it
was something that isolated me from my peers and the outside world.―

In Memoriam is available for purchase, POA.

The work is real panel painting. It's support consists of an 8 mm MDF-board backed by a pine wood frame.

Considering light, the painting can cope with or appears even more beautiful in demanding conditions of

Artist Statement: My work is a continuous search for the connection between the natural and the artificial, between
the outburst of the unexpected against the organized and disciplined. I should state that my background in biology
(MSc) has affected my observations of nature and is the source of my inspiration and of my research on the
interaction between the different materials that I use in my work.
The process is an experimental and intuitive exploration of the intermingling of materials, such as plastic glue, paper,
ink, salt, nylon etc., bearing many possibilities for “mistakes― and loss of control. Although my work is abstract
(without image or story), the result always appears recognizable and natural. I produce a fragile and flimsy world of
imaginary objects and landscapes. I got close to nature at the microscopic level and reformulates it from a distant
perspective. After the creations go through a procedure of drying and crystallization, they appear to have originated
in nature, like lacey and delicate sea corrals.

Artist Statement: Scotland is renowned for its majestic, ancient scenery but I’m exploring its transience. The
weather wrings changes from the landscape moment to moment – light, warmth then shadow deepens and
suddenly a gust of wind makes you turn away and it is changed. My current work is using mark making and texture
to convey sweeping vistas with pockets of detail to dally over.

I started painting with oils at the age of 12 and spent many of my younger years using that medium in a more
traditional way. Now, many years later I find myself back at the easel, and acrylics, collage and other mixed drawing
media are helping me find that immediacy I want in my work.

I was at art school in the late 1990s and somehow, we fell out of love with each other. I spent the years between
then and now throwing my creativity at whatever job I found myself in, travelling the world, satisfying my
wanderlust. Now I find I am settled, a mother, a southerner come north to Scotland and have fallen for its beauty.

Artist Statement: "My current work is an amalgamation of drama, imagination, and memory. The sea is my initial
starting point and touch stone. The interaction with materials is the way I engage myself with the
unconscious/subconscious and actual sea and the concepts of sea, I can use in whichever direction I choose. The
physical act of pouring and pushing paint around is an intrinsic part of my practice, whereby I lose myself in the
materiality of the painting process. Strong colour, an impression of movement and energy characterises my
practice.
An important value within my life has been 'the dramatic' and is a central thread in everything I become involved
with. Subsequently, these qualities that I value, have been my guideline for the constituents of my art making within
the last few years. My paintings involve the application of a wide range of mixed media and materials, which
continues to develop my practice further, whilst pushing the boundaries with new methods and ideas".

Hand-cutting pages, layering and lighting to create 3-dimensional structures that capture the beauty of the natural

Artwork 1 Commentary: I have always loved the romanticism of abandoned places - the stories the walls hold and
their faded glory. A once treasured glasshouse growing beloved plants, tendered gently, now left but still offering
protection to beautiful wild flowers and wildlife. I like to think that the fox finds peace here, quietly listening to the
birdsong and enjoying the shelter it provides.

These pieces are difficult to photograph - the essence of the piece is the depth and shadows created by the layering
and lighting which can only be really shown when you see the piece itself. I hope if you like it, that when you see it in
the flesh, you will love it.

Artist Statement: The functional object has become invisible, through its close connections the everyday due to
frequent use and modern mass production it has vanished from thought. The tool is symbolic of the ignored
everyday but through decontextulisation these ideas are being challenged, when a tool has its functionality removed
it can be reconsidered, recognised once again, it can be explored in new ways and it gains a power that is previously
hard to identify or acknowledge. Within my own practise I have been exploring these questions and ideas, using
everyday tools that are regularly ignored such as screws and handrails as inspiration, casting these objects in plaster
and removing them from there expected context exploring a style of utilitarian uselessness, mocking each objects
intended functionality.

Artist Statement: Leeroy Chapman b.1997 is an emerging artist residing in Newcastle, Australia. He has just recently
completed his Bachelors of Fine Art at the University of Newcastle where he took part in an international residency
program in Architectual Drawing in Rome, Italy. And is now practicing as an artist while studying in the Sydney studio
of past Australian Sculptor Tom Bass AM.
His work is explored through a multidisciplinary approach to art, which he uses to express ideas around materiality
and process. This use of material process is a way for the artist to reflect upon post modern ideas around
architecture, social organisation and daily activities drawn from personal experiences.
Chapman’s work has been exhibited through out the Hunter Region in numerous group exhibitions such as
Sculpture on the Farm, a public outdoor sculpture exhibition in Nsw. As well as being the recipient of the Brenda
Clouten Memorial Scholarship at Maitland Regional Art Gallery, which enables a young artist to travel internationally
in which he ihas chosen to undertake study in London in 2019. His work has also be shown at the Royal Art Society of
NSW for their annual young artist prize.

Notes:

Artwork 1 Title: Comfortable
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 100cm x 27cm x 30cm
Artwork 1 Medium: Acrylic plaster, poly nylon bag on cinder blocks.
Artwork 1 Commentary: Consolidation is a contemporary play on materiality which is a result of experimenting with
the casting process. In which objects are cast through new methods mold making and the filling of void spaces such
as bags and other fabric based materials.

This process results in these forms that visually act as a comfy soft object, where they look inflated, and relaxed, but
yet there is evidence of physical tension. When painted mimic saftey devices such a life vest, rubber boat or hi vis
workwear, which conforms and contrasts with the presentation under the support of construction blocks.

The contrasting nature of this soft relaxed form in sitting upon a hard rigid material is used as a metaphorical way to
express current ideas around the social aspects of human settlement. When thinking of the work in relation to these
ideas it is then reinforced through the support of the concrete construction blocks, that act as an analogy, as a
foundation. As a way to represent the development of our built environment to accomodate the needs of human
comfort.

Artist Statement: Patience; a virtue which is lost in a world of instant gratification.

I was not a naturally patient person, however I am a perfectionist. Unfortunately one cannot live without the
other, so my drawing presented itself as a unique kind of personal challenge for me, as each piece takes countless
hours I had to go against my desire for immediate results and learn to be patient; with myself and my drawing.
Patience guides me to make each mark, tiny and precise. Patience compels me to fill in each detail as if it were to
be seen, but goes unnoticed often overlooked by the bigger picture. Patience is my counsel reminding me that all
practice is progress. And yes, I have progressed. In the last two and a half years from the first time I used soft pastels
and returned to a realist style - having been inspired by the incredible work of Zaria Forman, I have developed my
eye for detail, fine-tuned my technique, and evolved in persistence.
The paradox of this new found patience is that I have overcome my need for perfection and have simply fallen in
love with the process, not as a means to an end but as a means to creation. A means to creating a world captured in
the eyes of a child, a watery ambition or the beauty of light reflecting on water.
As my proficiency grows I continue to pursue work that challenges my nature, while portraying my unique
perspective of reality.

Artwork 1 Title: Emergence
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 120cmx85cmx5cm
Artwork 1 Medium: Soft pastel on paper
Artwork 1 Commentary: “It doesn’t matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop―
- Confucius

Emergence is a self portrait representing the pursuit of dreams, rising up to the challenge; persistently and
courageously moving upwards in the direction of one’s aspirations. To break through the self imposed limitations
that keeps the reality of those dreams looking like a hazy illusion.

It was not the first large scale drawing I started; it was the first I finished. In the spirit of Confucius with over three
hundred and twenty hours of work it was one of my greatest lessons in persistence. There were frustrations, there
was doubt, then there was the commitment I made to myself. The commitment I made to pursuing my dreams and
the hard work it takes to see them through.

So will my final exhale be the next breath of a new life towards a limitless sky or drown in complacency and return to
a life of ‘normality’?

Well, judging by the face turned towards the sky,


and the determination in the eyes,
I see each obstacle as a blessing in disguise,
because I know;
reaching beyond our limits is what makes us grow.

Artist Statement: Born in Manchester, 1996, Gabriel Di Mauro graduated from the University of Brighton in 2018
after completing his BA in Fine Art Painting. Melding different philosophies and schools of abstract painting, Di
Mauro contrasts the hard edge with ‘expressive’ brush strokes, block colour with translucency and additive
with subtractive colour mixing.

Working with iridescent paints his paintings react to their surroundings, shifting tonally depending on the quality of
light and position of the viewer. This is important as it highlights the feedback loop that occurs between viewer and
painting. As they move around the painting it responds by presenting different layers of grids within the palimpsest.

Grids often appear in Di Mauro’s work. This is not only an acknowledgement of its rich history in abstract
painting but also a response to its use in scientific media, where the grid has been used to depict the fabric of space-
time and atomic structures. These paintings act as a mediator between this macro and micro, an attempting to
reveal the network between them.

Artwork 1 Title: Portrait Of Brexit
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 200X150
Artwork 1 Medium: Acrylic, spray paint
Artwork 1 Commentary: In my work I wanted to portray Brexit as a form of chaos and isolation. Overall the image is
an isolated face presenting the idea of the desire to want to confine Britain. However, within this desire there is also
the reality of chaos and disarray, which Brexit has brought. The unpredictable outcome of the pouring of paint
relates to the unpredictable future of Brexit as currently there is no deal. The overall shape of these marks also acts
like the shape of Britain however a distorted and “pear shaped― one. The integration of realism with these
abstract marks comments on the human side of Brexit and the idea of the natural segregation of people. People
tend to favour those they view as equal to them and those with a different culture and way of life are viewed as less
by some. This is also reflected through the layer of the spray-painted Norman mask. Normans and Romans are two
examples of immigration in history. However, these two groups were invaders, which diminished a culture that
already existed before. This same idea of invaders is how Brexiter’s view migrants. They see them as people who
will impose their culture onto others as opposed to integrating into the already adapted British culture.

metamorphosis makes you feel a post-chaos serenity. The uncanny silence of these formations that still maintain the
atmosphere of the past is a harbinger of a new storm in the same time. The forms of object that have become the
same as each other has gradually been getting "nowhere" which has losing their soul. Nowhere can be seen as a

Artist Statement: Lara Kavanagh


I question through my work the relation of classic painting ,with an interest in anatomy, to
contemporary culture and how does it fit a new purpose. In my practice I tackle an array of aspects as proposing
dramatic lighting and brush stroke in a contemporary discourse. 'Haunting, nostalgic and beautiful' my signature
collection Kurenai takes you through an enchanting journey into the eerie. Tied by a recurring thread of beauty
versus brutality, work in the series feature high detail soft brushstrokes contrasted by distressed or defaced figures.
The collection is proposed in strong crimsons, creating a theatrical narrative of romantic events, dim scenes and
empty grounds. The term kurenai comes from the Japanese language and it means crimson. I chose kurenai, the
shade of red, for being vibrant and timeless, thus reflecting the aesthetic qualities behind the work.

My passion is widely understood of relationships between human and nature, bond with living matter. Looking for
the best forms renders the nature of the newly created work, I realized that my interests run toward objects and
installations. Pinhole self-portraits combined with organic tissues embedded in resin, will manifest transience and
relativity of the existence of things.
In the central point of my investigation was a man - physical, mental and spiritual existence, whose presence,
recorded on the photosensitive material is juxtaposed with organic elements, which are integral components of
almost all the work. Combined with the image of my body, embedded in chemical preparations, closed in geometric
forms, will suggest another viewer-intimate landscape. This body of work will attempt to understand nature as a

I find the desire to make and own images of endangered species is a much healthier need than the aim to own the

promote with my art.

Artwork 1 Title: Untitled100
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 150X100X10
Artwork 1 Medium: Spray Paint, Acrylic Paint & Oil Pastel
Artwork 1 Commentary: I am particularly interested in showing a physical confluence between the skin and form of
the animal, and the situated or abstracted background.

In this piece, I was attempting to make the 'seams' of the elephant indistinguishable from the dark background. I
think this offers an interesting contrast and therefore commentary on the solidity of this gargantuan animal and the
fragility of it's existence.

This comment is further explored by the stylized use of spray paint; intended to evoke the naivety and ritual of
ancient cave paintings, which depict now extinct relics of the past - the mammoth etc. Bringing this into modernity
by obviously referencing the current preferred medium of street artists is intentional to force a narrative between
cave painting and it's present day counter-part; street art. That it is depicting an elephant is intended to inspire
correlation between the people of the past drawing on the walls what is now extinct, and this present day homage
acting as a premonition that these creatures could well face the same fate as the mammoth.

Artwork 1 Title: KOD 1006584
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 150/80
Artwork 1 Medium: prepared canvas, oil
Artwork 1 Commentary: The image is an automatic record of the time in which the creative process takes place on a
scale of one to one. The process is measured by the second hand and during it nothing else takes place except the
pictorial record of time. The creative act is a kind of contemplation of time and its materialization on the surface of
the image, creating the structure of an abstract map, lace, composed automatically, ad hoc of the simplest graphic
elements resembling archaic language or a coded message. The recording takes place quickly, deliberately rejecting
the general concept of the painting, composition and corrections, making the most of the case of composition lines
and plans. The title of the painting indicates the time dimension of the creative process of becoming a work which
arises in a precisely measured period of time, thus the image beyond its own painting layer is also an exact fragment,
a reflection of the artist's duration in the work. You can literally say it looks like it or it is 1006584 seconds of the
artist's life, which in this way stops time and allows him to continue in a new dimension.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 30x120x9.5
Artwork 1 Medium: Plywood, clay, ink, cork, steel nail
Artwork 1 Commentary: My design process made me express my feelings of this world through different
characteristics of architecture and environment through my daily life. That’s the reason why I use organic shapes
with harsh lines because of our humanity living in this harsh law and order versus our freedom of choice. Using my
piece as an escape environment am in for a period of time. As Klemens von Metternich quote “ The word
‘freedom’ means for me not point of departure but a genuine point of arrival. The point of departure is
defined by the word ‘order.’ Freedom cannot exist without the concept of order.―

Artist Statement: My work “LET ME OUT― is an autobiography to situations, where many individuals have
become the victim, due to technology evolution. The evolution of technology has provided us with decades of
advanced lifestyle, and yet, the physical and mental consequences to humankind have only begun to show. These
consequences affect both our body and mind, where we showed addictive behaviours and responses. These
responses are repetitive cycles of apprehensive confrontation and resisting to compromise reality.

“LET ME OUT― is aimed to place the viewer in a situation that we typically ignore. In this particular painting, I
am in the underground elevator with a group of strangers, an enclosed atmosphere. Meanwhile, I was intimidated of
being observed and judged by the same group.

I found the situation overwhelming and felt anxious with them surrounding me. Therefore, the perfect protection is
wearing headphones, to become alienated from the awkward situation. It allows people to escape direct
interactions. Hence the people on the painting is ghostly painted, this emphasises that the technology we use on a
daily basis is not just to avoid public interaction. It is also a repeated effort to not face our own inner dialogue.

The artwork is presented in a multimedia form, where a soundtrack is played through headphones, to re-enact the
pressing sensation that gives by the headphone. The expressive photographic painting provided a vision of my
perspective. This presentation allows audiences to experience my past in an altered version of the event.

Artist Statement: My work stems from an obsession with collecting pre-used and pre-existing items and moulding
them to create something new and different. The materials used in the work are collected from a variety of sources
such as skips, car boot sales and items thrown out or left on the street.

My work will primarily start with a discovery of how these collected items can be assembled and manipulated into
new forms to create one off light sculptures.

The chosen function for a lot of my current work is light, which I am fascinated by due to its ability to alter shapes,
colours and create patterns.As well as creating an atmospheric environment.

All of my works are created in a free-form nature and so naturally evolve in the creation process.

My work is primarily about taking something pre-used or pre-existing and giving it a new lease of life and a new
purpose.

Artist Statement: My focus is working with a poetic link between the visual and psychological, a sensational
combination within the internal and external world, something elusive, it’s beauty is hidden under the
surface. It is not subject to aesthetic constraints, it goes beyond aesthetic imagination and expectations. Just like
love, it is beautiful. However, there is no specific form of expression for it. How beautiful is it? or why is it that it’s
beautiful? It has gone beyond the scope of traditional aesthetics.
Â
My intention is to provide a link or a space which allows viewers to experience the existence of oneself from seeing
and feeling, lost and found. I think that is the beauty of humanity, an emotion or a psychological state that can only
be experienced by themselves. Therefore, I have no intention to show some form of beauty, or to create a sense of
beauty in everyone's expectations in my work, because aesthetics is a matter of personal preference. My work is
not an expression of a presentation of results, but a moment I find in my creative process.Â
Â
There are relationships subtle but ubiquitous in our lives.
At times your attention is held, other times it may leave you confused or lost.
It appears in a gaze, a casual moment, then disappears again.
I see my work as a window, everyone who looks at it might see perhaps that once existed and disappeared
experience of beauty or a viewer's own imagination.

Artist Statement: My work explores the representation of women in visual culture, in particular the representation
of those from a Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic background.

I recognise the importance of representation in visual culture, and the effect negative and limiting stereotypes
towards minorities has.

Collage plays a central role in my work process, the figures in my work are sourced from mass media. When
collecting images, I am considering factors such as their ethnicity, clothes and body language.

I work from fashion magazines because I am interested in pattern, how fabric sits on the body and the surreal
compositions that can be found in editorial spreads.

I enjoy creating multiple visual layers in my work and by doing so constructing multiple worlds within each painting.

By having figures from a range of ethnic backgrounds present in my work I hope to normalise the presence of
minorities within visual culture.

The fantastical worlds my figures live in carry the feeling that anything is possible - they are free from the limitations
of stereotypes, they can be who and what they want to be. I would like the viewing public to take that same belief
away with them.

Artwork 1 Commentary: I wanted to create a sense of organised chaos in this painting by playing with the interaction
my figures have with the space around them, and the interaction my figures have with one another.

There are recognisable objects and scenes but they have been collaged together to form a new unfamiliar world.

Previously my figures have been traditionally feminine in their appearance and of a caucasian background.

This painting has marked the start of me making considered choices when it comes to the women I choose to paint.

Artist Statement: I like the whole process of painting on a big canvas; assembling the wooden frame, stretching the
fabric, applying the gesso, even waiting for it to dry and finally starting to paint by mixing colours. I paint without any
strict plans – I like exploring details as well as moving freely across the whole canvas using large brush strokes
while working with my whole body.

Having grown up near forests and lakes in Finland, I often miss that proximity now that I live in a big city. Sometimes
the crowded, busy rhythm of the metropolis, and the disconnection from nature can all become a bit overwhelming.
To find some peace, I like to escape to my inner world. I record my dreams and memories and try to approach
painting with a child-like, open mind. When I paint, the best moments happen when I forget the passing of time. For
me, that’s how I find harmony and peace within my environment.

Artist Statement: We live in divisive times where in increasingly large parts of this extraordinary planet war, racial
hatred and inequality are promoted. As a consequence thousands of people have been injured and displaced.
Separation and ostracisation is a very lonely place to reside. However, ultimately those seeking devision loose out.
These are times when we need, above all else to connect to one another, our planet and ultimately ourselves as part
of this exquisite whole.
My paintings stand as responses to the investigation, research and enquiry into human connection and interaction,
incorporating relationship with self and other. As a antidote to abstract expressionist post war machismo, this
exploration has taken me to the study of homasociality, in particular, interactions between men.
Information and material has been gathered through facilitating and filming of workshops on the theme of an
enquiry into human connection through movement based practices, primarily contact improvisation. This has acted
as an intelligent metaphor for the shapes and interface of sometimes awkward contact, sometimes heart-felt open
connection. Subsequently the movement and application of paint becomes the mirror of artist in connection, with
subject, paint with canvas.

Artist Statement: My artwork is mainly focused on Feng Shui ideology, according of which the decoration and
organization of the living spaces has a direct energetic influence in our lives.
As a follower of this theory, my initial idea approaching a painting is to make it increase a positive energic
environment in the living spaces. So in my artwork themes can have allusions to archetypes, or esoteric symbolic
elements, and tend to always represent moments of uplifting and inspiring stories.
I explore imaginary characters, on a figurative and realistic style and blend them on abstract backgrounds where
multiple colors emerge from canvas.

Artist Statement: My work explores the conflict and complicity between nature/rural environments and
industrialisation/urbanity.
For the last few years I have painted and photographed Brutalist architecture. I am interested in the simplicity and
uniformity but also the awe inspiring nature of structures as imposing iconic monuments.
The series 'Power Station' is a continuation of that investigation. I am particularly struck by the sight of cooling
towers in rural settings on the verges of cities; both the aesthetic incongruity of how they must have been seen
when first built but also the fluid way in which the bellowing smoke creates cloud formations. The structures,
although imposing can often be paradoxically lost by their place in the industrial landscape, by the familiarity. By
introducing vivid colour I have added an element of chaos, furthering the incongruity. The process involves heating
the surface, the medium becomes fluid and shifts of it's own accord.
Although the structures appear imposing and strong they can also be fragile, for example, one of the cooling tower
structures of Fiddlers Ferry collapsed in 1984. There is a life span to the cooling towers in that they depend on the
longevity of the industry they serve.

Artist Statement: I was working on a project revolving around the fragility of organic constructions, specifically bones
as I have always been fascinated with fossils, x-rays and bones when I visited museums. Although bones are normally
seen as a strong organic structure, this project aimed to subvert that and instead bring to light how fragile they are -
despite their perceived strength, they often snap, break, chip or fracture. Particularly I wanted to focus on their
gradual decay, becoming more and more fragile over time and continuously breaking down on their own.

Although initially I wanted to imitate objects – such as a bowl or a leaf – after several experiments, I decided this
project would be more powerful I thought of the objects as living. Drawing the focus of my work towards creating
animate entities rather than inanimate objects, I discovered it gave the structures a more powerful presence and a
sense of purpose. Deciding to explore this further, my work began to delve more and more into the world of
palaeontology, recently I have started touching upon elements of the mythical – such as dragons.

Artwork 1 Title: Decay of the Bone
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 60cm Diameter & 30cm Height
Artwork 1 Medium: Plaster
Artwork 1 Commentary: ‘Decay of the Bone’ is a figurative 9 legged entity I made using plaster, combing
elements of living motion I contrast with the resemblance of a deteriorated skeletal structure. The use of plaster
came in to being from the results of previous experiments with other materials, which lead to the conclusion that
plaster had the best quality for portraying decayed bones. The natural colour is quite bone-like, also even though it
can be quite tough it is still breakable under a fair amount of pressure and it rubs off like an aged bone. The piece
was filed down to show a structural resemblance to fingers, however I retained the roughness that I had made while
chipping parts away to act as aesthetically pleasing carvings and reductions from the bones, which gave it an ancient
feel like a fossil. The armature of certain fingers were lifted to depict a sense of motion from the piece for it to
resemble something that was living.

Artist Statement: Movement and the body’s relationship to created forms are presently the focus of my practice.
Currently utilising predominantly metal sculptural structures combined with the physicality of my body as a basis for
this exploration, I further alter these initial forms by directly interacting with them in live interventions, therefore
both challenging the idea of finite sculpture and seeking an ongoing dialog between myself and the materials.
Thoughts of the balance between revealing and concealing- the need to be seen by the Other and the need to be
hidden - are also explored in these interventions, through which dialogues between interior and exterior worlds are
expressed via the manipulation of physical objects.
As well as integrating my body into these constructed pieces, other sensorial elements offered by the materials are
foregrounded to further enhance immersive and interpretive qualities. Sounds made by ‘playing’ the
sculptural elements in various locations are recorded and edited, then subsequently played back in situ while the live
interventions take place. The recorded sounds are at times dissonant and out of step with the live physical
interactions, yet via responding to the recorded elements with layering of improvised live sound I seek to create a
balanced tension between the creation/destruction process of the performed interventions. The siting of my
sculptures is a further core element I am developing; seeking to respond to specific locales which influence and
blend with the materials and performative elements of the work.

Artist Statement: As a portrait painter, people’s emotions and idiosyncrasies compel me to paint. I am often
drawn to human vulnerability and intensity. I like to delve and dig deep, to really capture an honest portrayal of
people. I often paint my family and people I have a strong emotional connection with because I feel that in many
ways its most honest and often revealing, but also comforting. Feelings are the driving force behind my paintings and
I hope that they reveal a sensitive portrayal of the people who are close to me in my life, and I hope I can share this
with my viewers. I’m drawn to naturalism, alongside a painterly approach, to express some intimacy with the
people I paint. I am working to try to establish a deeper connection through my process. I continuously paint with
oils on linen because the feel and texture have a strong rhythm of conveying my visual language clearly. Since
studying at the Heatherley School of Fine Art, I have learnt to scrutinize my own work and have been driven to
develop an ongoing portfolio that I feel really highlights the type of painter I wish to become. My inspiration also
stems from my RBA Rome Scholarship Award that I won in 2017, which enabled me to study in Rome for a month;
Artemisia Gentileschi, Michelangelo and Caravaggio have played a huge part in influencing my current practice and
allowing me to disclose a narrative on relationships with myself and my sitters.

Artist Statement: My sculpture represents the ‘circle of life’. It would be placed where local landscape can
reflect within it.

It has evolved from my childhood memories, inspired by the East coast of Scotland within the 1960’s. Where
fishing, coal mining & steel foundries were prominent.

The first section is my interpretation of Fallopian tubes, moving through the womb and curves of the ribs as
protection, to the rugged coastline and visible hills and mining shafts. While the dramatic light and rapidly changing
weather reflects within the piece as people use the sculpture to converge, reflect and contemplate.

The curves also symbolising moving through life and transitioning from life to death, the two figures reflecting as
they succumb and genuflect to the sea as fishermen and to the coal mines as miners.

Artist Statement: There is a constant interest in how abstraction is a main factor that impacts my work. Currently, I

creating a composition that tells a story through figurative qualities, through editing interesting shapes that I take
from the tapestry to my paintings.

Colour is an important element to the work. I think the colours that are always mixed from primary colours are what
make the work have the abstract quality that it does. I enjoy the combination of creating synthetic colours with more
natural colours. There is a fun and playful quality to how I am trying to represent tapestries.

The materiality of the work is vital in how it is perceived. There are works that have been painted with the mind-set
of the paintings being wall hangings, however there are also paintings that through using plastic and muslin, both
slightly transparent materials, allow me to layer to create a depth to the work.

There is a confidence I have within how I work from painting on the wall, to the paintings being cut up into sections I
find successful, which are later stretched for some of the works. The experimentation of paintings and not fearing
how a painting will turn out is something that truly excites me.

Artwork 1 Title: She...
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 145 x 125 x 120
Artwork 1 Medium: Sculpture
Artwork 1 Commentary: A large consensus indicates that childhood trauma is significantly involved in the
development of depression. It has shown to be a high cause affliction in adulthood.

Psychologists define memory as the mental process of encoding, storing and retrieving different sorts of
information. We often unconsciously create and recall our memories. Our brains store memories but sometimes we
lose them.

Clouds: the idea of clear thinking and emotional purity. They are also a symbol of secrets, mystery, and emotions.
They come in many shapes and forms.

Clouds can never be touched. The human form can be embedded in clouds, or the clouds themselves can take on a
human form.

She looked around for a way out but was surrounded by a cage. What we should think about now is whether the
cage is protecting her, or is she looking for ways to protect herself?
The cage looks so strong, the clouds look so invisible, and it is not difficult to escape.

What happened in childhood has a large impact on the psychological state of an adult. When terrible memories have
been repeated in my mind, the strength to break away from those memories has long since faded away.

For children who are insecure or even think that they can protect themselves, the desire to seek security and a safe
haven cannot be ignored and cannot be eliminated.

And this desire will create contradictory ideas. I need a person to give a sense of security, but at the same time, I
want to build a wall of my own to avoid being hurt.

After a while, I fail to find someone who can provide me that security that I yearn. Then, I give up briefly and tell
myself that I am the only one that can provide my own sense of security.

When I finally succumb to the desire of having people appear in my life again, I find myself once again looking for
that person….

Dependence and security are often frustrating, they seem to be linked but they can also be disconnected.

Artist Statement: Hello.


I would like to introduce myself, my name is Alon Talmi. I was born and raised in a village in the north of Israel. Ever
since I remember myself, I was attracted to nature and hiking, in the beginning with my father and later in life with
my kids. While hiking, I was always on the look on the marvel of nature, noticing various images that are portrayed
by nature and the wild. My imagination took me on imaginary trips filling them up with stories.
My passion for art exposed me to certain specific artists whose works exhibit a strong connection between art,
nature, and the human feelings. One of the artists, whose work influenced me the most, is Antoni Pitxot.
During the creation of my own work, I feel how the materials from nature communicate with me and guide me
through the process. The emotions I experience during the work and the hidden feelings of the materials influence
the whole process. Hence, the mix of nature and man-made creation are expressed in my works.
The most important stage in creating the work is photographing. The reflection of the light creates an imagery,
freezing a moment into a single frame. This frame manifests nature and presents the hidden feelings in it, including
all of the human strengths and weaknesses.

Artist Statement: My art is about our capacity to physically harm another human being. During Second World War
we were ripping out gold teeth from dead bodies, changing human's fat into soap, producing lampshades from
tattooed skin. There's a new generation in a modern world which doesn't know what hunger, poverty, and hate are.
In the 21st century, we forgot what a real war means. I believe that remembering that pain and history can save us
from the Third World War.

Artwork 1 Title: Genocide No. 1
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 60cm x 95 cm x 60 cm
Artwork 1 Medium: Plaster
Artwork 1 Commentary: A heap of gold teeth presents what one person is able to do to another human being. I hark
back to the Second World War when humans' destruction was highly mechanized in the concentration camps.
Despite the sacral attitude towards the dead body, it was very common that time to see people ripping out gold
teeth on request or just to get rich. In the book "Golden Harvest" Jan Tomasz Gross claims that it's always too soon
or too late to "talk about it". I believe that we can't forget about what was happening during the First World War,
Second, and the rest of them. We live in a very peaceful and comfortable world at first glance. However, it doesn't
take much to change everything. Many countries have got bombs which can destroy even our whole planet. Wars
are bad. Everyone knows it, but not many of us really understand what does it mean to live during that time. In my
art I want to present how cruel and brutal we can be- not in a survival situation but when we are blinded by idea,
belief, obsession.

oil, mainly from my imagination. I am just about to embark on 12 months sabbatical to see how far I can get in the
painting world.

I am an expressive painter with many of the portraits completed in one sitting. I aim to portray inner feelings that I
observe on the faces of people I meet day to day. The faces I paint inevitably have distortions which I feel enhances
the emotion that I am attempting to paint. Additionally most of my portraits are painted with thick impasto paint
and are brightly coloured which will either add to or conflict with the nature of the portrait.

I use colour definitively to emphasise form, shape and composition and to impart a feeling of positivity to the
observer. My mark making is achieved with palette knives or brushes and I like to experiment using both.

My journey of self-exploration towards an artistic life.

For my art practice, exploring the five elements as the starting point, which is from Chinese theory. I interested in
the theory regarding circle, balancing, generating, influence each other of this world. I observe the elements of
nature in the natural world (gold, wood, water, fire, earth), through the five elements, observing the different
intersections between elements and people, and explore the different natural stimuli, discovering in our world.

The Five Elements is a systematic view of Taoism since ancient times in China. It is widely used in traditional Chinese
medicine, numerology, art and divination.

If yin and yang are an ancient theory of the unity of opposites, the theory of the five elements can be said to be a
primitive system theory. According to the Five Elements Theory, the phenomenon of nature is summarized by the
changes of the five kinds of gas: wood, fire, earth, gold, and water. It not only affects the destiny of the human being
but also causes the universe to circulate; it emphasizes the overall concept and depicts The structural relationship
and form of movement of things.

For me, as a mother, in the process from pregnancy to the upbringing of two children, I have felt the fragility and
preciousness of human life. Therefore, I want to explore the changes in people in different phases of growth, who
have been experiencing changes in the natural environment. My art practice is aimed to explore the different
changes in the relationship between people and the natural environment between the five elements, and those in
people facing different stimuli. In order to create sculptures, installation art and video works by combining different
materials of natural elements.

Artist Statement: My life project ‘Life Forms Of Universe’ is painted with black marker and acrylic paint on
paper. These forms all have their open soul holes to look through them on a mirror. Therefore, we can see us in this
mirror realising that we are these ‘Life Forms Of Universe’. This is our life getting shown in colorful and various
ways.

The black lines are an essential part of my art which I need in order for these ‘Life Forms Of Universe’ to feel
right and to see them, see us, when creating and painting them, as well as looking at and inside them after
completion. It’s the awareness of being part of every single ‘Life Form Of Universe’, of every living being on
earth, which I see when looking into the mirrors of my artworks. This realization is more important than anything
else to me and ultimately makes me happy.

My artworks are created with the ease of living my gay life as a young adult and world citizen, someone of a kind
nature, a positive outlook on life and inspired by nature. A warm and loving feeling towards the universe, myself and
my environment, as well as a feeling connected and being friends with every ‘Life Form Of Universe’ are

Artist Statement: I am Brazilian and these roots are reflected on my art. Vibrant, colourful, tropical, full of energy. I
started painting abstract art, as my defined style, twelve years ago. Every painting I make is a photograph of my
unconscious, my thoughts, my feelings, in the moment of its production. The diversity of my work is intentional so as
not to become repetitive. There’s no explanation, no specific meaning about what I do. The purpose of my work
is touching people in different and particular ways so each one can experience it by their own vision and emotions,
fostering many sensations through the use of colours and shapes.
My influences include Kandinsky, Pollock, Miró, Picasso, Romero Britto, Neil Kerman and Vicky Barranguet.

e-mail: danielalou@libero.it

In 1984 she obtains a Master degree in painting at the Fine Arts Academy of Brera, Milan with Prof. Beppe Devalle.
Thesis under Prof. Tommaso Trini and based on the analysis of a specific sector of art history on the subject:
“Pratica della maraviglia. Processi di arte visiva in presenza di artifizi e strumenti rappresentativi― (process of
visual art in the presence of artifices and instruments of representation).
Since 1983, she participates in exhibitions and art prizes in Italy and abroad.
Over the years she focus her painting on a deeply intimate and innovative research, that aims at strong expressions
of shape and light. During this phase of her career, the distinctive feature of her artworks becomes the succession of
images, mainly portraits and landscapes. So the single pictures become a sort of frames and introduce in the work a
preeminent component of time. Recently she starts to build her artworks in a more complex dimension, through
sculptures and installations, where the creative process follows specific paths based on the subjects of homage and
offering.
Mixed techniques installations : acrylic and oil colours, watercolours, pigments, chalks and charcoal pencil on wood,
zinc, silk, chalk, paper, cardboard and canvas; cloths, plexiglass and semiprecious stones.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 60x50x50
Artwork 1 Medium: Installation
Artwork 1 Commentary: The work is a poetic transposition of the Tibetan prayer flags (tib. Lung ta - whose meaning
is “wind horses―), that are placed along the pilgrimage paths or near the crossing places in the Himalayan
region. According to the local traditions, the wind spreads the word of prayer written on the flags throughout the
space. The work is a compound of plexiglass slabs with silk inserts painted with watercolors, oil and acrylic colors,
chalks and pastels.

Artwork 1 Commentary: The self-portrait encapsulates Helen's inner tensions regarding her creative process. The
detail and vibrancy of the face, symbolising her overthinking and uncertainty in her painting, clashes with the muted,
minimalistic background, signifying her want to let go and welcome mistakes. The pose and expression is that of
frustration: constantly questioning how everything should be approached and executed. With each layer of acrylic, a

Artwork 1 Medium: black biro and india ink
Artwork 1 Commentary: My Vanaisa (grandad) was born in 1948 in Estonia, which at the time was under Soviet
occupation. The first thing you would notice about him, is his smile. His eyes fold in on themselves while each corner
of his mouth pushes up his cheeks into two pockets of joy as they race towards his ears. His chin creases in towards
his neck as he begins to chuckle until his eyes water and his entire body bobs to the beat of his laughter. This
drawing depicts the moment after I asked him to sit for a portrait and he mockingly adopted the pose of a poetically
tragic and tormented soul gazing hopelessly into the distance, until he could contain himself no longer and burst out
laughing.

Artist Statement: Pain can be explored through art in a way that words can only scratch the top of a scab. Being a
migraine sufferer, I’ve always been interested in how medics ask me to ‘describe the pain’ and I see by
their faces that I’ve either ticked boxes of previous descriptions written on forms or books, or, a lack of
comprehension of what it is like to really feel and go through that pain, sometimes up to four continuous days -
could be once a week, once a fortnight or if I’m really lucky, once a month. My words could never describe pain
anywhere near how I felt it, or, how I saw it visually. When I showed “MY MIGRAINE― to my family and
friends, their understanding was immediate...again proving that art can not only talk but makes people DEEPLY feel
and empathise like they never felt a subject/person/situation warranted before. I get cups of tea made and neck
massages now!

I want every neurologist, psychotherapist, physiotherapist, optometrist, dentist, surgeon, employer and every family
and friend of a migraine sufferer to see MY MIGRAINE: it is estimated that there are 6 million sufferers in the
UK....lots of us know them! My pain may not be the same as anyone else’s but if it helps us all to be more aware,
job done! Now where’s that cup of tea?

Artwork 1 Title: MY MIGRAINE
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 43x36x22cm
Artwork 1 Medium: Clay, metal, wood, various
Artwork 1 Commentary: Migraines are so painful
Like the worst headache ever
Worse than a hangover
Like someone’s hitting me with a hammer and stabbing me

Words just don’t do it: MY MIGRAINE is what I feel and how I feel.

Each layer of MY MIGRAINE is relevant. The top layer is a shiny, pleasing coat of PVC - giving an accepting aesthetic.
Underneath is raw, uncooked clay which has been modelled on a polystyrene head. The clay cracks show the
vulnerability of the veneer on top, giving a glimpse to what lies beneath but also shows how fragile our skin really is -
just a plastic waterproof coating that breaks down with wear and tear. The polystyrene scull was used to show how,
with one look, it’s just one mass, shaped but it is made up of millions of compressed pieces that cannot be
individually identified or view, especially because of our protective skin yet, the pain can flow from the outside into
the brain or maybe from the brain to the outside. The pain is wired - it’s alive and connected, submitting blow
after blow of pain as if from various implements. The right side of the face is smiling, carrying on - this is how I
sometimes have to be when I am at work, or, in a situation that I cannot excuse myself from because ‘I’ve got
a migraine.’ So while I am smiling and continuing with my day, the left side shows what’s really going on but
has to remind unattended.

Artist Statement: In brief, my practice revolves around the rejection of ideology on approach to a work, using
photographs and found imagery as primary source material. I fragment, clash, combine and contrast imagery
through painterly means, often in a single composition.
Having recently experimented with hessian, in place of traditional canvas, I concluded it would be a good idea to
extend my ongoing usage of it. I particularly like its raw, textural qualities and the way it absorbs the paint. I find
spray paint is also complimenting my style, alongside oil paint, and contributes a desired ‘airbrush’ effect
which works particularly well on bodily features. I like to think the work can be read in numerous ways and
directions, leaving the prospective viewer, who holds no importance or significance in the creation of such a
collection, to interpret and make personal sense of it through the finding of new contexts and connections amongst
the sporadic and random combinations of images.

Artwork 1 Title: 'Jubilee Stores (minus the boy)
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 177.8 x 73.66 and 177.8 x 88.9 sm
Artwork 1 Medium: oil paint and spray paint on canvas
Artwork 1 Commentary: My piece is a diptych compromised of two separate paintings, similar in size and both
executed on hessian with the inclusion of spray paint. One painting is directly above the other, with the bottom one
being displaced slightly to the right. I used only two photographs as source material, both found in old archival family
albums, in its creation (I often use many) and executed them both on separate canvases. They depict myself and
three of my siblings naked in the bathtub and dressed up smartly prior to a visit to our grandmother’s house.
Both photographs were taken in our old house, ‘Jubilee Stores’. My other sibling, John (often referred to as
‘the boy’) is not present in the painting as the photographs were taken before his birth-thus the caption
‘minus the boy’. In addition to their essence of nostalgia, I felt they both accurately portray our individual
characteristics through our postures and bodily expressions. I feel the two paintings compliment each other well
because when paired together as they show the top and bottom halves of our bodies in different social contexts,
matching the faces to the bodies. I also chose to use a semi-accurate life-size scale in order to make the work more
immersive.

Artist Statement: Diana Nour – short story about me

I am often being asked …what art do you practice, what do you do? and I use to find it the most difficult question
to answer, because my art has always been different, I have never looked at the same things and if I did, I have never
seen them the same, they are always changing …because I am changing, I am rising and falling. I figured it out
years of thinking … what am I actually doing? and it was conceiving a language, my own language, which was all
about colour and my life journey …and I am about to tell you my path.
It took me years to find the words and it took me years to put it into visuals; at first, I had the visuals, and I did not
know what they meant. I had dreams and ideas but I did not understand where are they coming from; I thought
reading Freud’s “The Interpretation of Dreams― will have some answers to my questions, well it did, but
only to one point, as I had to read my mind first.

I was not a usual teenager, I was in love with the sky. I grew up surrounded by nature and I was listening, listening to
it. They say you never know you are born in music until the music stops; the music never stopped but I could still
hear it, it was there all the time, a language of nature, trees and rain.
I use to spend hours and hours just watching how the leaves and branches of trees meet the sky and all I could see
was colours …bright colours and lines, vibrant lines; and all I could hear was their music.

Artist Statement: Hi there my name is Luke Barker, I am an artist living and working in Caerphilly. I am a painter as I
use paint but also mixed media on canvas and paper and wood. As long as the material and materials hold
possibilities then they should be explored.
My work happens by way of mistakes and also previous drawings or a piece of anatomy I wish to introduce onto the
canvas or paper. Due to its immediacy and no conception of a final image or even half an image the pieces gradually
inform themselves and ask questions about what is needed next. The marks and first abstractions or things included
really do shape and command what should happen next. I have to be open enough to allow and listen and do.
My work does have themes, the human body, animals and nature, natural science, language. I also like the layout of
maps and diagrams and two dimensional childlike ways of processing a language. My work is not constricted by
traditional values as I want to create my language in art, I want to express who i am, and this can only happen if my
work is given freedom to do so. The success of an image relies on being aware and open minded.
My paintings include more paint as there is more surface area to cover and it takes more material to become a more
physical space like my smaller more collaged pieces. But both include the same materials as I want the larger pieces
to have the immediacy and sketchbook quality of the smaller pieces. It is important that they all hold this energy for
generating any success.

Artist Statement: I am a ripped paper portrait artist with a signwriting background from which block and bold colours
have influenced my style.
More recently, I have been working with decoupage and collage techniques, on the one hand, whilst at the same
time painting traditional portraits of both people and animals.

I started experimenting with mixing and blending these styles together to create a single piece of artwork and I then
began exploring the use of different materials and discovered my passion for ripped paper artwork.

I draw the subject then using newspapers and magazines I rip small colour pieces, text and images and create my
artwork . Each artwork containing a mixture of text and images that are personal to the portrait image.

Artwork 1 Title: Two Sides To Every Story
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 90cm X 90cm X 3mm
Artwork 1 Medium: ripped paper art
Artwork 1 Commentary: Two sides to every story??

An often used phrase in our current day to day communications. A phrase that gets banded about regularly.

I wanted to explore how we 'accept' these phrases and use them frequently ... ...but do we really live by them ? ..do
we truly consider 'that other side?

I chose the iconic David Bowie "Heroes" cover to reflect on this question:

Its an image that at first glance looks plain, simplicist, straightforward even... What do we 'see' ?.... a young and
beautiful David Bowie, your "classic' success story of the struggling artist who has risen to the highest level of
success and is celebrating it ...an image of a hero.

Why the quotation marks on either side of the word Heroes then and why no colour to the image ?
Is it possible that Bowie was far from feeling like a hero ? is it possible that whilst David Bowie was 'shining bright'
David Jones the person was in hell ? Is the lack of colour a reflection his mood at this moment ?

Why that 'unusual' pose?


A painter himself, a master of reinvention and aware of the power of the media ..perhaps Bowie is, taking previously
famed art and replicating it in his own style?

In exploring my two sides to every story theme through "Heroes" I have tried to incorporate not just Bowie 'The
Man' but to also capture the era of Berlin at that time -a city of two sides itself.

Artwork 1 Title: How Long is a Piece of String: A World Tangled in Uncertainty
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 114.5 x 114.5 x 0.9
Artwork 1 Medium: Continuous Line String Art
Artwork 1 Commentary: Rachel’s entry considers the many worries that plague our modern world, in an attempt
to physically depict the internal worries and fears we all may possess.

Rachel’s artwork entry, How Long is a Piece of String, affords a discussion of what seems like endless uncertainty
in our world today especially in the wake of governmental leadership trysts. Notably in the UK the controversial
debates surrounding Brexit and the USA in light of the MAGA movement – but also on a global scale: conflict and
wars, climate change, health and the sustainability of life as we know it. The piece displays a continuous line of string
alluding to the very notion of uncertainty often associated with the phrase 'how long is a piece of string?'. The string
starts at the beginning of the question mark and spans the entire piece only being cut at the end to tie a final knot -
holding the piece in place. The work narrates the spider web that humanity has tangled itself in, caught in a modern
world exhausted of resources, caught in conflict and inundated with fears for the future.

The patterns embodying the skyline, each unique in their string design, all exemplify individual themes. Note, the
number five is very powerful – symbolic of the harmonic unification of all elements. Moreover, clovers have been
considered by some to symbolise stability, expanse and fecundity. Just as the three-leaf clover represents one of
three tenets, so does the five. Rachel hoped to reflect the symbolic associations of each leaf with the differing
continuous line string patterns.

One leaf is symbolic of initiation, starting, and assertion. While, two leaves is symbolic of choice, duality, balance.
Three leaves is symbolic of innovation, harmony, creation. Most common are four leaves is symbolic of foundations,
stability and order. Crucial to the understanding of this piece – five leaves is symbolic of transition, adventure,
travel, and unpredictability. A modern society plagued by Metathesiophobia, it appears that uncertainty is the root
of all fears. Rachel hopes to shed some light on the topic but also encourages some optimism in spite of any
prevailing fears, through her adoption of the five-leaf clover and her depictions of plants, life and growth.

drag shows and bars grew in number. But in reality such people were still marginalized within society. And in some
ways still are today. This led me to study the idea of split identity. How people may present themselves as one thing

architect, give him a taste for drawing, and a certain taste for architecture. The painter Pierre Gilou, allowed him to
switch from drawing to painting, transmitting to him a technique, "le métier de peintre", and a certain way of
analising. Finished his studies in Arts, Arno decided to devote himself entirely to painting. After many visits to Italy
he finally settled there. Besides Tuscany, Naples continues to insipire him.
Figurative painter, he mostly paints "en plein air", which makes it easier to individualize his subject, and especially to
assimilate fully. He reaches its full intensity when studying the object, he almost sniffs it, weighs it to grasp it's
consistency, tastes its colours; then, when his senses are satisfied he paints it.
He is both extraordinarily modern and finely critical of modernity. He knows pictorial traditions, has studied history
and techniques, which he masters. The pleasure and science of Arno are those of a talented draftsman and a
coloruist who, once settled in Naples, quickly seized the southern colours, without giving up the northern lights of
Paris, to give place to this physiognomy peculiar to his paintings, a mixture of sweetness and austerity.
His paintings are concrete visions, constituting a corpus of sensitive forms.
Arno offers us to percieve the world, to be sensualists rather than intellectualists.
That's why his canvases, rigorous and uncompromising, have sensuality that seduces without shame: one would like
to live there, to be able to circulate there, all at ease.

Artist Statement: I'm currently studying for an HNC in Fine Art, to developed my understanding of Fine Art and Fine
Art Language.
I explore these ideas using several experimental techniques including Pastels, Colouring pencils and Acrylic. I
produce a sketchbook exploring how these mediums would bring a final piece together. Throughout this process of
experimentation, I change my ideas along away, not only changing mediums also my style of work which on occasion
can evolve from the figure to abstract or a combination of the two.
When working I manage my time by painting during the evenings and weekends around family, developing ideas
along the way.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 40x51x1.5
Artwork 1 Medium: Acrilyc on Canvas
Artwork 1 Commentary: I find working with abstract language allows me to express myself and be able to explore a
freedom of imagination, using processed based abstraction.
For this piece I've used Acrylic on canvas. I like the way the colours blend and hold in place when applied to the
canvas. The acrylic allows me to build the work up in layers and to paint over in some areas.

Artwork 1 Title: Relocating
Artwork 1 Dimensions: 200 x 130 x 170 cm.
Artwork 1 Medium: a wall of bulding boards, plaster, white paintwork
Artwork 1 Commentary: My artwork was inspired by the novel "Flihgts" written by Olga Tokarczuk. Her work was
about the most common and most characteristic feature of the human population; relocating, shifting, getting
somwere slowly or very fast, quite often only on feet.Such situations can be caused by climate change, war, tourism
or just the love of moving.
I found these different reasons for migration as a metaphor for human life- permanent changes without a lot of
static points.
This idea is reflected in my artwork, which is separated into the form of five human figures, standing close to each
other. the entire watchout of transparently-contoured postures are visualized as a 3D drawing of group of people,
frozen in different position. Expressing the idea of changeability I emphasise the correlation between the white,
basic, lowerpartsof all postures with their diamond-shaped luggage and the part of the sculpture- harsh, unfinished,
incomplete upper part of the bodies.
For that work I applied mixed media: a wall of building boards, plaster and white paintwork.

Artwork 1 Dimensions: 100cmx100cm
Artwork 1 Medium: Mixed Media Sculpture Print on Aluminum Backing
Artwork 1 Commentary: This piece was an opportunity to express the immense physical and emotional challenge of
creating life through the IVF (In vitro fertilisation) process.

The needles in the piece are real and have been used during my 3rd IVF cycle.
The injections became a day to day object for me.

I wanted to translate these objects into my inner world through a representation of a bird that holds them all
together, presenting freedom of choice.

This is my take on man made nature.

Artist Statement: This piece was composed as a whimsical prelude before Christmas, but finished recently upon the
sad news that the great artist and educator Tony Kane (who used to give highly enjoyable art lessons at his home
studio on Wednesday evenings) had passed away recently.

The piece is entitled "a windward direction (a velvet reflection)" and is in mixed media ( metallic and felt-tip water
pens as well as gentle water colour washes).

A Statement Of Pride

A Statement of Pride is an on-going documentation of my hair as black woman’s hair taken in a photobooth for
nearly 2 years as identity and pride. I want to show the world that there is no limit to a black woman’s hair and
our hair should not be a factor for judgment.

It is mine and I can do whatever I want with it.


It is just hair.
My new style is not an open invitation.

This work started from the constant policing of black people’s hair in society, not being able to get certain jobs
because of our hair, children getting sent home because their hair is too distracting, the lack of understanding of
what Afro is to us culturally and the general talk of afro hair not being ‘Good Hair’. We are raised up to believe
that relaxing, texturizing, perming our hair is better looking, easier to handle and professional.

your hair is your crown, however you want it wear it with Pride.

Artist Statement: The winds must come from somewhere when they blow,
There must be reason why the leaves decay;
Time will say nothing but I told you so.

Perhaps the roses really want to grow,


The vision seriously intends to stay;
If I could tell you I would let you know.

Suppose the lions all get up and go,


And the brooks and soldiers run away;
Will Time say nothing but I told you so?
If I could tell you I would let you know.

WH Auden’s words of 1940 eloquently also describe the uncertainty that many of us are experiencing today.
Who are we in this complex world in which we live? How do we make sense of it and find our place? Connecting to
others helps us create shared meaning, yet despite all our access to resources and technology, our human and
economic systems are breaking down. Isolation, inequality, mental health problems… are on the rise, we are
forgetting what it means to be human.
I run a liberal arts programme for executives and anyone else who is interested. My current creative work is
exploring connections in my own life and who those people, including myself, are behind the masks we wear. Oscar
is my rendition of a wonderful actor to whom I feel connected, in part because I sense he has revealed aspects of
himself through the roles he has played. Our “masks― are also doorways through which we can play with and
show who we really are.

was without a partner, we looked at each other and finally, the sun started to go down he turned to catch the last

Artist Statement: Capturing elements of the human psyche as a raw and honest product of the subconscious mind, I
aim to provoke visceral reactions. Predominantly I use oils to create work as a form of catharsis. My art is figurative;
existing in an intense moment of movement or emotion.

Artist Statement: I started painting a couple of years ago. After I was diagnosed with cancer in 2016.
I am semi -retired at 51 years old and I'm intending to make a career of being an artist.
I paint using acrylics on canvas and paint mainly animals using vibrant colours and patterns to show there energy
auras and beauty.
