ABOUT THE ARTISTS STEPHEN JAQUES My work is a constant cycle of reinvention and discovery. From sacred geometry to anthropomorphic form, colour binding together disparate elements. The process is akin to alchemical transformation – a perpetual unfolding. Driven by instinct, disorder harnessed in pursuit of the idea. Sources range from ancient art and symbolism to contemporary design and architecture, and these together create the pop mechanics of the paintings.

TOM WILMOTT I am a painter living and working in London. I studied at Central St Martins and Camberwell College of Art and have held a studio since 2004, and am also co-founder of the curatorial partnership Wilderness Projects. My practice as a painter is based very simply on my love for the medium and it’s natural characteristics, and an instinctive need to indulge in the act of painting. Like so many painters I know, I experience a constant base urge to make things, therefore the paintings I make are products of necessity. The behaviour of painting fulfils this base need, and then the resultant object fulfils a material desire. In the object I am searching for essence; indefinable characteristics of the medium which exhibit something singular and unique to painting. I do not look to employ paint to do my bidding, but instead hope to work with it and find some common ground on which it may do what it wants within the simple boundaries I set. My paintings stand on their own merits, living or dying by their physical, visual qualities. They do not communicate more than these things, nor profess alternative conceptual reading. They are humble, tangible, material constructions made for their own reasons alone. For me painting a deeply personal pursuit which is inextricably bound up in my own life and history. I openly employ it as a means to improve my experience of living and to help me maintain myself in a state I wish to be. Creativity is a flighty, unruly, unpredictable thing and despite expending a good deal of time and thought on putting something down in writing it remains a force not easily explained. Therefore the best I can say is this: Ultimately, if looking at my work proves a positive experience for you, then you already know everything you need to.
