My work comes into being in the space where science fact and science fiction meet and merge.
Inspired by the narratives of scientific discovery and innovation that increasingly dominate contemporary culture my work is an attempt by a non-scientist, an outsider, to visualize, comprehend and assimilate these new ideas and new ways of seeing the world, whether it's to do with our changing perception of bacteria or the paradigm shifts in our comprehension of the physical world that emerge from quantum physics. But a recurrent theme in my work is the limitations of science when confronted by the vast scale and complexity of nature. Science's goal of containing and defining nature is constantly subverted and fractured by the sheer volume and variety of data that needs to be observed, analysed and classified. This is figured in the excessive detail that characterizes my work as I attempt to overwhelm the eye through the scale and volume of what I depict. Process and material are crucial; the large hand cut pieces are dissected from sheet after sheet of paper in careful scientific fashion with a scalpel knife, sometimes taking months to complete, the slow act of cutting repeating the long time-based processes that dominate nature: growth, decay and re-growth; whereas the laser cut works push both machine and material to their limits. Paper, my chosen material, embodies the paradoxical qualities that we see in nature: its fragility and durability, its strength and delicacy; there is a pleasing poetic symmetry in taking this material that was cut from the forest and by cutting and transforming it once again returning it to its origins.

German artist John's conceptual work is an attempt to discern governing principles of the universe - art as a way of enquiring about the world. Artistic investigation, as a way of inquiring about the world, keeps asking the same perennial questions about origin of matter as science and religion. It bridges scientific and spiritual dimensions by conveying a message which is both: universal and deeply personal. His art transcends the dualism of objective and subjective, matter and spirit. It goes beyond the established framework of human knowledge and beliefs towards the state of ubiquitous oneness. He believes that every form of existence, from a thought, a feeling, matter to space and time is one and the same energy governed by the same principle and being a part of the Singular Universe. Dualism exists only as our perception and it is through their singularity that we can access the truth.

Lisa is a contemporary abstract artist. Sharing her time between North London and North Yorkshire. “Although I have A ‘levels in Art and History of Art, I am mostly self taught. My speciality is acrylic and mixed media and I take my influence from the patterns and textures of our amazing world.” “I love the feeling of freedom and energy that the use of different mediums allows. Often, something as simple as a variation in texture or direction can create something totally unexpected. Each of my paintings reflects the different layers and adventures in life that create our own unique individuality. It is for this reason that I leave it up to the owner of the painting to decide which way it should hang.” “We all see something different!”

Gonzalo is a self-taught artist who began his career as a sculptor in the early nineties. Initially experimenting with figurative sculpture linked to decorative arts, but then acquiring his maturity with a radical evolution towards abstract conceptualism. Gonzalo sees art as a way to release human concerns. His sculpture refuses a scientific conception of geometry for the sake of an idealistic abstraction closely linked to architecture, mathematics and scientific thinking. The development of abstraction and the use of geometry in his work are closely linked to a rational process based on the discovery of new shapes. This constant search that guides his work translates into a demonstration of endless variations in geometric shapes. Gonzalo sculptures refer to spaces inhabited by humans, sometimes invoking buildings, human or organic shapes or landscapes. He creates his sculptures guiding his artistic intuition through his memories. His shapes give us an insight view into his own experiences.

From Goldsmith of 16 years to designer of precision laser-cut wall panels; Sarah has transferred and developed her metalworking skills from miniature to large-scale. A Jewellery & Silversmithing graduate of The Cass, she has based her collections on the themes of repetition, geometry and how the tiniest, most insignificant parts can create complex and strong, balanced forms. Plant cells, microbiology and geometry all play a part in the development and design of her work, and her pieces are executed with precision, skill and attention to detail. Her jewellery collections have been exhibited in galleries in the US, Japan and across Europe. She now creates unique, bespoke fine jewellery and is expert in redesigning and remodelling unworn heirlooms. A commission in 2014 from renowned corporate art curator, Tom Tempest-Radford, saw Sarah's work transformed to an altogether new level, and brought her work into the realm of largescale decorative architectural metalwork and installations. She utilises the skills of local engineering companies in combination with her own metalworking experiences and craftsmanship to create her new, vibrant collections of decorative panels, room partitions and lighting installations. Sarah has a long history of working closely with clients to create bespoke, considered and perfectly executed works.

I like finding beauty in the irregularity of nature's textures. Finding order in chaos, merging reason with emotion. My work is made from small fragments of handmade porcelain. Each piece always unique, embracing my own inperfect touch which creates imperceptible irregularities, revealing themselves as textured surfaces when mounted uniformly. The tiles are assembled in lines and groups that follow the same pattern and is often interrupted. Sometimes by an empty space, or a simple division or by introducing tiles of a different colour to give it a change of pace, or simply to invite the viewer's gaze to a more attentive perception so they dialogue with the work and feel its presence.

Joseph studied at Liverpool Art School and followed this with post-graduate study at St Martin's School of Art. He has over twelve years experience as a freelance illustrator for a wide variety of clients in advertising, publishing and design. “Inspiration for my recent work comes primarily from Nature and in particular butterflies, moths and the folklore and mythology surrounding these specific insects, to produce work with a narrative quality. I tend to work in series and draw inspiration from classical and popular music, fashion and graphic signs and symbols. I am also inspired by the Victorian obsession of collecting, preserving and presenting insects in boxes. My butterflies are created from collaged paper and each butterfly is individually hand cut. As well as their obvious natural beauty, I agree with the Eastern belief of butterflies as bringers of joy and being the essence of happiness.” “I like the school of thought that butterflies represent the soul.” - Joseph

After many years of teaching art in secondary schools and with her passion for ceramics Julie embarked on a MA Ceramics at UCA Farnham, which she completed in 2016.
Throughout her MA Julie took her inspiration for her artwork from the Jurassic Coastline which is a beautiful, interesting and internationally important place because of itâ€™s fragility. The seas strong and destructive waves are the primary shapers of this coastline and usually occur in the winter when the sea is cold and grey, intermingled with blues. These colours and the fragility of this coast are both reflected within her final outcomes. Her work also explores the senses, especially touch, sight and sound. Julieâ€™s other ceramic work continues to reflect the same themes. All her work is wall based and are either created from shards of stained porcelain that are framed or small porcelain tiles that are stitched onto canvas to create wall hangings.

My work consists of an aesthetic search for the shape and the material. The outline of the pieces is thought over according to simple and pure lines that endow the object with some serenity. The treating of the surface allows to give a personal touch to the work. In order to obtain the different aspects of roughness, scratch, or carbonization, a precise knowledge of the techniques and meticulous work are necessary. In order to obtain some textures, I even use a blow torch, a kind of chain saw or acid.
The work done on the material gives birth to a contrast between light and shadow. The notches of the wood create the downstrokes and the upstrokes; the polishings permit the brightness or the dark effect. To this, we must add the nature of the wood which according to it's colors or it's irregularities will contribute to different results. I principally use local species such as walnut, maple, ash etc. By making use of the specific characteristics of each species and by combining sometimes different materials such as metal, slate or wax linen with the wood, I endow the piece with its special richness.
In all my work I am interested in following a very simple system which is devised prior to execution and cannot be deviated from during the course of production. There is an abandonment of colour, of gesture, of the expressive, and instead I instate an almost mechanistic methodology that minimises the decision making process and emphasises a systemic approach. In this respect the work can be seen more as a result, bounded by a set of rules as opposed to something derived from an intuitive, responsive operation. There is a meditative aspect to the work, the repetition of a singular form or action synonymous with some mantra, yet this repetition equally feeds into a minimalist convention, where industrial conformity and a stark mathematical edge underpin each piece. Although aesthetically, the work appears almost machined, they are very much hand made objects, obsessively laboured and crafted. I am attempting with each piece to follow through the process as accurately as possible, however, there are invariably â€œmistakesâ€? present. This presence of the human acts to undercut the implicit abandonment of any expressive or gestural mark making. One is thrown into relief by the other. The work occupies a space between this pure, reductive detachment of authorship, and an acknowledgement of the hand made.
Belgin was born and brought up in Istanbul, Turkey and has been living in London for almost three decades. She exhibited in Istanbul, London, Bergen and on the QE2 liner. Many of my works are in private collections in Turkey, UK, Ireland, Portugal, Oman, Sydney and the USA. Drawing on the themes of existence, self and identity she creates sculptural ceramic works, installations and wall pieces. Working with such powerful themes, enables Belgin to to draw from a personal understanding and knowledge that helps her relate and communicate with others. Her work examines the notion of continuing evolution and change; that things are not perfectly smooth, spotless or still. It is about the contrast between inside and out, and the tensions this creates.

‘I have a strong attachment to the natural world and a nostalgia for how collecting started for me. The Observer’s and Ladybird books, cigarette cards, maps and stamps that I use to make my work come from a more innocent age when i would pore over them by night and be out in the countryside looking for their contents by day. My work is a continuation of that obsession with collecting, cataloguing and observing’. Andrew lives and works in Whitstable, Kent and is Course Leader for Further Education at UCA, Canterbury. He has exhibited all over the world. He has work in the Tate Britain collection and many Artists Book collections in the UK, Europe and Russia. He sources the matchboxes from all over the world, particularly Eastern Europe and India and a lot are from the 1950's and 1960’s.

Alexander, in the tradition of collage, is pursuing a very personal obsession of creating narrative scenarios in small format. Using antiquarian books, he makes the work simultaneously an exploration and a deconstruction of nostalgia. We create our own past from fragments of reality in a process that combines the wilful aspects of remembering and forgetting with the coincidental and unconscious. By using pre-existing media as a starting point, certain boundaries are set by the material, those Alexander aims to transform through his creative process. Thus, an encyclopaedia can become a window into an alternate world, much like lived reality becomes its alternate in remembered experience. These books, having been stripped of their utilitarian value by the passage of time, regain new purpose. They are no longer tools to learn about the world, but rather a means to gain insight about oneself. Alexander makes book sculptures / cut books by working through a book, page by page, cutting around some of the illustrations while removing others. In this way, he builds the composition using only the images found in the book.
