welcome Ten weeks; more than a hundred artists; one city: Independents Liverpool Biennial is back. International, uncurated, above all independent: here’s your chance to discover something unexpected. And this time, we’re doing things a little differently. The work doesn’t simply appear from nowhere, display itself for a few weeks, and then disappear. It’s part of stories that began before the festival started, and will continue after it ends. Inside, as well as the usual listings, you’ll find individual profiles of the artists, groups, and venues that make up Liverpool Independents. Online, at www.independentsbiennial.org, you can find out more about their story – find out who they are and what their practice is, and learn about what they’ve done before and will do after the festival. We hope you’ll find someone whose story you’d like to follow when the festival ends. So please: welcome your unexpected guests.

The Independent

Artists... Ali Harwood I draw. I paint and I write. I listen to the lines and the colours. I want to help them be right. I succeed to a greater or lesser degree each time. That’s about it. I draw and paint and write best when I remember what it is like to be a child and edit with my developing heart and mind.

Alice Lenkiewicz My work tends to be spiritual and other-worldly in its theme, I like to create situations that I remember or work with Signifiers that I feel point towards contemporary issues. I also paint in a realist style, sometimes sketching and painting people, the city and landscape which can lend itself to social commentary.

Amanda Griffiths I aim to produce collections of simple, quiet forms in clay that have reliant components in multiple sets. The honesty of materials interests me, so by using minimum making techniques of hand building to create my pots, I have a low tech way of working, that includes smoke firing.

Annabel Little A childhood obsession with making dolls and dolls’ houses led to a career in architecture but my passion for textiles has remained and the two now come together in the form of two and three-dimensional textile constructions. I have recently moved into a studio at the Bluecoat.

Annemiek Collin Annemiek creates sculptures in bronze, ceramics, metal, and combinations of these materials. She draws inspiration from nature and architecture. Keywords being growth, shelter, reflection, tension, and harmony. The resulting sculpture often emerges from a contrast between pictorial and architectural.

Barbara Harrison I am an abstract visual artist using digital media. I seek something on the very edge of vision; I wander in and out behind the pixels, where form, light and colour re-create the romantic sublime.


Barbara-Ann My inspiration has come from 20 years of professional wrestling. I’ve learnt that Art and wrestling isn’t too different, I’m still entertaining an audience but with a different medium. Mainly using printing methods in unconventional ways to convey the female form.

Barrie West Barrie West’s thought-provoking work deals with issues of identity, memory and how the self is inextricably linked to our own personal, yet universal experiences. The visual clues in his work, the colours and the fleeting images all look back to past events, both actual and emotional.

Ben Youdan I have been living and making collage in Liverpool all of my life. My work is concerned with the conflicting themes contained within the information we are constantly bombarded with in the contemporary world. My work is a handmade product of the digital age.

Brenda Sharp As a photographer and multimedia artist I am increasingly interested in exploring ways to combine my photography with mixed media and producing them on substrates other than paper. I have never lost the child’s eye for potential fairy haunts around the roots of trees.

Brigitte Jurack Living in Merseyside, commuting to Manchester and London, Jurack works across single and shared authorship providing highly charged public interventions (London, Kiev, Berlin, Venice) questioning ideas of value in postindustrial society, and sculptures celebrating the tactility of the seen and imagined.

Carolyn Shepherd I make sculptures and installations and sometimes drawings too. I do this because I am trying to find a visual language to express my idea of ‘continuity’ – about rebirth, renewal, regeneration and the desire to keep going, recover and persevere.


The Independent

Artists... Carol Ramsay Illustrator turned Installation Artist, responding to site and working with recycled and found objects. I deconstruct forms of everyday life, as such creating and fabricating unusual or delicate works of art. I have a strong belief that contemporary art can be aesthetically pleasing, yet still viable.

Christine Chemin Christine’s paintings are usually acrylic on canvas or watercolor on paper. She specializes in horses, portraits and abstract themes. Towards the end of 2007, Christine dedicated herself to an equine series EQUUS. Her ensuing paintings showcase her love for these magnificent animals.

Claire Bates (Landbaby) & Rebecca Joy Sharp An installation by artist/maker Claire Bates (Landbaby) and writer Rebecca Joy Sharp. The eery story is set in a soldier’s hotel in rural Wales during the First World War. Poems by Rebecca, embroidered by Claire and housed within the installation, also featuring a hidden element of sound.

Claire Glasscoe I am a photographer with a number of linked portfolios including portraiture, reportage and photographing art in all its forms. What fascinates me, as a photographic artist is the play of light at the edge of entities. This image series was taken in Bhutan, Himalaya where the light is extraordinary.

cognitiveSTEREO We collaborate to explore ‘control within relationships – personal and global’. We work with poetry, performance, bubble wrap, led’s and sound.

Debbie Ryan Mosaics Debbie Ryan is a visual artist that specialises in contemporary mosaics, public art project management. Debbie likes to make work that explores and celebrated the multiplicity of the natural world. Debbie recently returned her practise to the UK, after a 5 month art residency project in New Zealand.


Derek Culley My approach to painting is my approach to painting. I seek spontaneity in my work that is reflective of my moods, my emotions, and my response to all that is beyond me and within me. My use of materials over the years seems to bear a pattern. My reaction to a completed work is the title... the journey’s end for that particular work (or the beginning of the journey!).

Dimitri Kosiré “A painter of pure temperament, far from the certainties handed down by Schools and theoreticians, Dimitri Kosiré only expresses what he captures within his innermost self. And from that hand to hand combat with paint, there comes forth a true joy in creating which goes beyond his own vision.” Gérard Xuriguera.

Edward Bruce Edward’s multimedia artistic practice includes printmaking, sculpture and public art. His art springs from a sense of place - the genius loci- and his interest in coded language. The work is usually an attempt to bring together the transient and the permanent.

Emma Johnson I am a painter and art teacher based on the Wirral. My work is mostly contemporary oil portraits based around the Liverpool music scene and characters met backstage at gigs and festivals. I try to participate in as many exhibitions as possible, and have recently had solo shows on Mathew St.

Emma Thackham & The London Rd Collective Long Live The Institution! explores contemporary art from inside and outside of ‘artworld’ contexts. Dialogue & Exchange visits between arts professionals in Liverpool & Northwich to re-imagine the function of the former art school at The London Rd Studios in Northwich.

Eric Bridgeman Eric Bridgeman is an Australian and Papua New Guinean artist. ‘No Direction’ will feature new and recent video, photographic, installation and performance work at FF 97 Gallery.


The Independent

Artists... Erica Hamilton The sea is a dominant recurring theme in her work but Erica Hamilton’s pre-occupation with the misuse and subsequent lost meaning of words has become an increasing focus. Hamilton’s metaphoric use of the wave endeavours to capture a pulse, a conversation, a consequential word.

Fernando Garcia-Monzon Spanish architect and figurative portraitist. The inside of the human being appeals me more than the outside.

Giorgio Granozio I’ve always been attracted by the shapes of nature. As an architect I see geometric shapes in any organic form and I’m addicted to and attracted by the Golden Section. As an artist I’m trying to convey my imaginary world through a variety of media. I like to use photography and computer software.

Istra Toner In glass I like making images within glass by fusing and forming. My work always tells the story, and has deeper meaning besides the aesthetic qualities. As a metaphor, a piece of glass captures and preserves the moment in my life; the compositions drew upon images and themes from my personal life.

Jack Sawbridge I make ornate objects that are designed as Geometric Experiments. I set twisting timber shapes against the straight line geometries of Piano strings. The strings can be played and tuned. The Balletic Goniometers also contain blow molded glass vessels that are connected to the tuning systems.

Jacqui Chapman Born in South Africa, growing up near the game reserves in the Eastern Transvaal, and holidaying on the Wild Coast, these remote landscapes fed her connection with the land and gave her a deeply rooted African spirit. Her work explores the relationship between identity and territory and through abstract landscape paintings investigates issues of displacement.


Jacqui Priestley My work is inspired by the natural landscape and is concerned with “memory” in particular those memories that are so significant no matter how much time passes between our experiences of them; we can still recall traces of their presence.

James Brady As an inter-disciplinary artist, through a variety of mediums I set-out to investigate the complexity of human symbiosis with place, environment and ecology. Very often my work addresses, abstractly, what is commonly perceived and all too often misinterpreted, as an anthropocentric distinction between ‘natural’ (organic) and ‘human-made’ (artificial).

Jane Fairhurst Encompassing a wide range of media including drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, photography and film, Jane Fairhurst’s work explores contemporary society’s environmental, political and social issues. The transformation of found objects is central to her practice.

Janine Pinion I came to Liverpool in 1977 to study Fine Art, opened Acorn Gallery (now the Egg) in 1984, moved to Wirral in 1996, and have recently begun painting again after many years of working and bringing up my son. My influences are artists like Joan Eardley, Ivon Hitchens and Matthew Lanyon.

Janinie Whitling My work is informed by my environment, including my ongoing personal development in metaphysical subjects of inquiry. I investigate the human condition in its quest for self-identity, origins of existence, and belonging within society.

Jeanne-Marie Originally from South Carolina, Jeanne-Marie is now based in Liverpool. In her work she explores memory, dreams, time and place.


The Independent

Artists... John Body My main inspirations come from landscape although I also produce figurative work on occasions. I would describe my painting as expressive, gestural responses to landscape.

Jordan L Rodgers

Josie Jenkins Josie studied Fine Art (painting) at Norwich School of Art and Design in 2002. She has worked as a freelance artist based in Hull and Nottinghamshire before recently settling in Liverpool. In 2010 Josie joined Arena Studios in Liverpool becoming a director in 2012.

Julie Lawrence

Karen Edwards I am a printmaker and Letterpress artist based in Liverpool. I will be showing paper based works influenced by the recurring patterns found in nature.

Kurt Dereli I am a sculptor and painter based in Lancashire.


Linda Mary Evans A Wirral based contemporary artist. I am inspired by the dramatic coastal and mountain areas of Snowdonia, North Wales. My work explores personal imagery derived from these areas and my emotional response to this landscape is essential to my creative process.

Marie Louise Williams Intricate, alluring and challenging, Marie’s expansive installation in the show ‘Introjection’ is crafted from recycled materials, reflecting her deeply held commitment to long term sustainability. A full time artist and graphic designer, Marie is based at Wellington Road Studios, Oxton.

Mark Peachey I specialise in fine art, landscape, urban and architectural images. Mainly self-taught, I have an abstract style; my images forego the traditional landscape view of the world around us, often using a documentary approach to ask questions about how people and places co-exist and the power and simplicity of light and shade.

May Chong Artist and Illustrator. My work is illustration in black & white using pen & ink based on architecture, wildlife and nature. I also use acrylic, pen & ink and these are more playful. I take recognisable subjects and interpret it in my own way so when people view it, they find it interesting and fun.

Michael Lacey Michael Lacey is a recent graduate of the Glasgow School of Art who works primarily in painting and collage. “Explorers” at Arena Studios & Gallery from Sept 27th is his first solo show.

Michele Howarth Rashman Michele Howarth Rashman is a UK based artist whose meticulously hand stitched mixed media sculpture takes many weeks and months to complete. Her work has shown alongside many of her more celebrated contemporaries, however Rashman remains an elusive figure who works alone and exhibits rarely.


The Independent

Artists... Michelle Richards Michelle Richards is a creative arts therapist. Her art work is conceptual and the themes for her work are developed from observations of social juxtapositions.

Mothman comic book Tony Knox/Anna McDade Mothman comic books will launch of a limited edition of 500 issue all numbered only available at The Bluecoat chambers. Mothman the dysfunctional the super hero is back in his haphazard adventures. Then onward bound to Koln Germany as part of the eight days a week festival. Performances will occur.

Natalie O’Hare My work is focused on social and political issues. Over the past 3 years at university I have been making small installations that highlight how politics encroaches on our personal lives. Through the use of Print, embroidery and Textiles, I embed the images of past and present governments into the furniture and walls.

Nicole Bartos Visual artist and Curator, Gallery4allarts; www.gallery4allarts.com. Lives and works in Liverpool. Since 2006 has established and runs Gallery4allarts. Bartos works in an abstract and conceptual style, in a variety of mediums and chooses to explore philosophical, metaphysical and spiritual grounds.

Pamela Sullivan My work explores the use of fractured sentences and open statements to give the viewer the opportunity to lend their own understanding and experiences to my artwork often giving it new meaning and fluidity.

Patricia MacKinnon-Day Glasgow born MacKinnon-Day studied at RCA, London and is now based in Liverpool. She approaches each new context in a spirit of investigation, teasing out the physical and psychological clues. The film at Pagoda Arts depicts the on-going struggle between individuality and collectivism in modern China.


Patrick M Higgins Photography In black and white, and colour, Patrick’s images are vibrant and edgy, reflecting the changing landscape, from the wild coast of Wales to the urban heart of northern England, engaging the imagination and challenge our perception of the familiar.

Rob Symington Wirral based artist/visual-handyman. Paint, print, charcoal, ink, and other ways to get hands dirty. More interested in the process of making, than the end results. The best things in life... aren’t things.

Sarah Nicholson I make temporary installations which are intended to make viewers think about the ways in which we relate to, and engage with, daily life; with places and spaces, people and memory. Environmental considerations are also very important to me and I often work with reclaimed, recycled and found objects.

Sylvia Hikins Sylvia Hikins paints abstracted images drawn from the wild landscapes of Scandinavia and the gentler tones of North West England. Having flown over the erupting volcano Eyjafallajokull in 2009, Sylvia took 41 canvasses to Iceland last summer for a six week solo exhibition in Reykjavik.

Sharon T Ross My work reflects my optimism of life. I use Landscapes and Figurative ideas to expressively reflect my feelings and emotions, they are abstract and literal.

Silent Bill I feel like my art is my solitary act of rebellion. This is my only way at having my say about the state of the world. I hope that my pieces might inspire other people to think about current economic issues or failing that it just might give them a bit of a laugh and cheer them up on the way to work.

Artists... Simon Adam Yorke Simon taught licensing law for nine years before completing a BA (Hons) (2005) Fine Art from Liverpool John Moores and Post-Graduate Diploma (2007) from Central Saint Martin’s where he exhibited in numerous shows in London and Paris. Simon has just completed his MRes from John Moores University.

Space13 The human condition provides the greatest sense of inspiration within my life. How people communicate, relate and interact with one another, through coping mechanisms, strategies, and patterns of behaviour offers a matrix of expression that investigates, displays and transmits.

St. Bridget’s Cloak St. Bridget’s Cloak is an artist collaboration to advocate, explore, and enjoy the legacy of St. Bridget of Kildare and the early Celtic Christian roots of the British Isles. Objects, music and video installation will facilitate the visitor/participant to meditate/contemplate St. Bridget today.

Sue Lemasurier Freelance artist based in St Helens, working mainly in oils although some work in acrylics. As a mature artist with limited mobility and a disabled husband my work is mainly based upon my immediate environment and garden.

Susan de Kruiff Graduating from the Royal Academy of Arts in 1999, she was nominated for the South Holland Design prize. Her mainly existential work sees both present and past being played off against each other, in which the unspoken and invisible play just as an important part in the image as that which has actually been photographed.

Susan Lee Brown I am a multi-disciplinary artist, which means I work with many media. I paint in oils, I am a print maker and a conceptual artist. I studied art at the University of California but find the challenge of living and working on Merseyside affords inspiration for my work. I have pieces in collections and homes globally and there are frequent exhibitions of my work.

Theresia designs to order and also sells and exhibits at art fairs and galleries around the country.


The Independent

Artists... Wendy Williams I work mainly with paper, finding the medium useful for several reasons. It is easy to carry, manipulate, it’s form can be changed, printed on, cut, dissected, but most importantly for me it is disposable.

Viktorija Grigorjevaite I try to maintain a provocative style of photography. I aim to shoot portraits that have a quality of a stop frame and that have a narrative that makes people stop and wonder what the rest of the story is.

MARTIN GREENLAND – Western Landscape 2011 Inventions & Reinventions, Corke Art Gallery
