GENNARO Gennaro started painting in 2006 and after about one year of tests, he decided to stop in order to study the processes of interaction between colours: two enamels poured on an even support tend to blend autonomously. He realized that through this phenomenon - which he defined as “blending” - it was possible to depersonalise the product of the creative act and reach concepts that transcend reality. By employing a transparent material called “methacrylate”, Gennaro noticed that the colours blended on one side of the support. On its other side, instead, the first moment of the pictorial act remained imprinted, revealing the mark left by the colour before the process of depersonalisation. Hence, he decided to mould the painted support so that the two moments of metamorphosis could be shown and made available to the public. In 2011, he approached Il Metaformismo, by professor Giulia Sillato. She led him to show his work in several prestigious exhibitions. In 2014, after examining in depth the critical survey on Metaforma for years, the artist published his own programmatic formulation about Seconda Forma (literally “Second Form”). In short, the artist declared that it is necessary to face a first phase of depersonalisation of the creative moment through a painting act in order to describe all the concepts related to the incorporeal. Then, there is a second phase of the sculptural process, during which the creation is brought back to a corporeal level and becomes available to the observer.

VIRGINIA I was raised at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, where the history and lore of the gold and silver mines gave me an early understanding of metal. Over the past 17 years, I've been refining a technique combining the ignitive force of casting with the delicacy of weaving to create woven bronze sculptures that evoke both literal and emotional interpretation. I sculpt each base in wax and then cast them into bronze. I then weld spines to the base and weave the thin bronze wire, and sometimes beads or other objects, around the spines. After the weaving is complete, a patina is applied. Sometimes the shapes that emerge are extremely deliberate, while other times they evolve during the process of creating them. Combining bronze casting and weaving connects me to some of the most ancient human activities, and offers a way of lending grace and movement to bronze.

PHILIP M Working in bronze, copper, steel and stainless steel - Philip designs and creates unique and bespoke sculpture, furniture and artworks for home, garden and public or business environments. He designs, fabricates and installs public art pieces and runs workshops in schools and with community groups. Philip creates an eclectic range of sculpture and contemporary furniture. Highly aesthetic in nature, you will find much of his work curvaceous and tactile, but with a coarseness that is lent from working with bare steel or stainless steel. His style ranges from figurative to abstract and is always in context with its environment.

JODIE H Jodie is a Metalwork artist based in Leicestershire. She graduated from De Montfort University in 2011 with a First class Ba (Hons) in Design Crafts. She was selected to participant on the Starter studio programme at Yorkshire Artspace, where she won the Sheffield Assay office Precious Little gems commission 2015. In September 2015 she was selected to be the International artist for the Craft ACT Artist in Residence program in Canberra, where she is currently exhibiting her new collection. Jodie creates woven sculptural objects inspired by Australian fauna, since her first visit to the country in 2012. The abundance of beautiful forms, colours and patterns found in the Australian bushland has motivated her designs. Along with her long time interest in textiles and how these techniques can be used within a metal working tradition. The weaving process in particular is central to her work and it is what drives her development. Jodie plans her vessels quite logically and mathematically, she weaves the sheet into pattern pieces which will create her desired forms. The woven sheet is then repeatedly hammered and annealed to create the organic colour palette. Her inspiration is to create an aesthetic contrast between the organic colours and form and geometric pattern in the weave. Jodie's intension for all her pieces is to intrigue the viewer and hope they become captivated by these objects and see something new from every angle.

JOSEPH S Joseph studied at Liverpool Art School and followed this with postgraduate 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

NICOLA B Having specialized in carving in both wood and stone at Wimbledon Art College, Nicola now works mainly in stone and bronze. Her preference is for medium to larger scale works made in plaster to be cast in bronze although she also makes smaller pieces in stone and bronze for indoors and outside. The originals she usually makes in plaster or occasionally clay depending on the required finish of the cast bronze. In the Creation sculptures: Pod, Bud, Fig Gourd, Wavy Clam, Sea Cone, Fig Shell and Ammonite, the focus is on simplified abstraction taking the forms back to their basic essence in nature. All of these pieces are about being contained but with a hidden presence inside the forms; shells and fossils depicting a quiet past life, pods and buds describing a quiet present life invisible from the outside yet on the inside depicting growth and a future life waiting to emerge. The Stone Figurative carvings focus on the same idea of a quiet life within, contemplative and peaceful. Throughout the past twenty-five years she has been exhibiting both abroad and throughout the UK, regularly in London including at the Mall Galleries, The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and Cork Street. Her work is also held in both public and private collections in Singapore, Germany, Poland, Hungary and throughout the UK.

JENNIFER Jennifer is a mixed media artist whose is influenced by the mapping of the journeys and layering of memories, she has made both living and working in many countries abroad. She philosophically explains: ‘My work is based on the journey of life, its layers and strata. Through time and pressure beauty is created, we mine the soul to find the precious things. Life refines and polishes our history and the choices we have made. Our layers and compartments are filled with experiences and memories.’ The study of clay has influenced my art in the use of minerals, textures and formations. The resin creates the contrast between the dynamism of the elements of earth and water. The essential life forces!” Jennifer's paintings can only be truly appreciated when seen in person. In print, it is impossible to capture the spectacular and unique 3-dimensional effect of Jennifer's paintings integrated with earth pigments, oils, resin and gold leaf.

KATE M Kate explores the limits of geometric and optical abstraction through the use of colour, repetition, sequence and distortion. Surfaces are created which fold inward and lie on various angles, occupying and enlivening physical space. As the viewer moves around the work, the form, shapes and shadows alter, creating a sense of distortion and surprise. The three-dimensional nature of her paintings aid in obscuring the rules of fixed, consecutive arrangements, generating a sense of unease by creating broken and fragmented shapes whilst in a uniform composition. An endless battle between systems and disorder, structure and chaos echo throughout her practice. Focussing on an aesthetic and optical effect, her work transcends the obsession with ‘meaning' in contemporary art. Emphasising the materiality or the ‘thingness' of three dimensional structures, she is not only drawing on and combining different disciplines but she is advocating a renewed appreciation of the experience of ‘substance' in the experience of art. The whimsical titles such as, ‘I Can't Afford The Luxury of Personal Boundaries', and ‘My Apology is From The Heart', contrast the striking precision and sensory impact of the work, and play upon the contemporary viewer's instinct to search for meanings or significances attached to profound objects.

SARAH From Goldsmith of 16 years to designer of precision laser-cut wall panels; Sarah has transferred and developed her metalworking skills from miniature to largescale. 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 TempestRadford, saw Sarah's work transformed to an altogether new level, and brought her work into the realm of large-scale 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.

VAUGHN Vaughn creates his three dimensional art with materials such as plywood and acrylic. “Patterns interest me: they are the background, the fabric and the landscape in which we live. Patterns are made by the weave of thread in cloth, the repeated laying of bricks in a wall, the individual decisions of a billion consumers or the single pixel of a digital screen. They record a process of thinking and making inside every product created by men. Patterns are blueprints, used to move data across space and time. Complex patterns inside nature remember a million years of Darwinian history. Patterns of human settlement, grids of streets and pavements remember the interests and politics of people now long gone. The pattern of a fingerprint records identity, controls our access to space and allows movement across national boundaries. Form, identity and icon are spectacles which can be constructed. In a world of spectacle, pattern is silent and barely noticeable. It is often invisible, often unintentional. It is manifested in elegance, logic, beauty, brutality, music, weather, language, planning, coincidence and accident. Patterns are dynamic, stable and restrictive in every measure. I work with patterns because they construct and constrain reality, for better and for worse. Although they are quiet (because they are quiet) they are very powerful. Made visible by art, they can be exposed, interrogated and challenged.�

CHRIS W An award winning Welsh born artist. His work is focused on contemporary glass design and explores the relationship between light and glass. His art works are juxtapositions and aim to create beauty and complexity out of simplicity. He loves the dual nature of glass, its strength and fragility, working simultaneously with light, colour and structure. Art has been a consistent focus in Chris's life. Early on he studied art and design at college before becoming a photographer. These pursuits allowed him to develop an understanding of form and light. It wasn't until 2012 that he found his true calling; studying Architectural Glass at University.

MICHELLE M Michelle's art is work of elegant simplicity which, in itself, is the first of many seductions into an engagement with a complex network of tensions. The work is bedded in the clear space between opposites; the movement captured in stillness; the fragility and ephemerality of nature captured in the strength and permanence of industrial, man made materials; inexorable freedom within the clinically defined limitations of space. Whilst utilising symbols found in nature that have a timeless constancy, the methods and media used are innovative applications of contemporary industrial materials subtly handled, so that even the closest scrutiny give almost no intimation of their origins. This play between the timeless and the immediate is at the heart of Michelle's work. However tranquil the order of the instant may seem it cannot segregate itself from the underlying chaos of nature and it is into this engagement with chaos that we are lured, so unassumingly, by the captivating simplicity of order.

ROGAN Aogan is an Anglo-Irish artist who currently resides in the south of France. His work explores the boundaries between observational study and artistic interpretation, existing somewhere between scientific accuracy and pure, unbridled imagination. Using both a scalpel and a laser he creates intricate, fragile relief sculpture out of layers of cut paper making multiple visual references: marine algae, cell structures, microbes, pathogens, neurons, coral, fossils, fungi. Each work starts as a detailed drawing and then grows organically layer after layer, playing with the dynamic of repetition and variation until a kind of critical mass is achieved and the work asserts its own uniqueness and autonomy. The process of production is slow and painstaking with some pieces taking up to five months to complete. The ultimate aim is to create works that invite quiet contemplation of the vastness, complexity and beauty of the natural world that surrounds us.

PETR Petr is an artist specialising in remarkable contemporary art pieces created in ceramic, concrete and metals. Son of a Czech emigre born in England, Petr trained as a graphic designer before following his muse and dedicating himself to ceramics at Central Saint Martin's in 2001. Petr finds inspiration from his past, present and how he perceives himself in the world. This predominantly breaks down into a fascination in people, psychology and our inherent interactions. Also and equally weighted the allure of ‘mother nature', boasting her plethora of mathematical patterns; in imperfect perfection. Each art piece transforms, magnifies and captures a complex blend of philosophy, emotion and self-reference. The works are striking and deceptively simple upon first glance, growing in complexity over refection revealing narratives within. Petr Weigl's works can be found the world over. Exhibiting on the international art fair circuit, his works are commissioned and purchased by private collectors, commercial institutions, and art enthusiasts.

JOHN F 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.

PHILIP H With a background in architecture, interior and furniture design Philip is a selftaught sculptor and specialises in sandcasting to make pieces which engage the quality of bronze as a noble material in its own right. Sculptures are intimate in scale and intended for the interiors of home, office or hotel. Casting in sand moulds is a simple and ancient method far removed from the sophisticated lost wax operation used by most art foundries. The sand-casting process is relentless and unforgiving - the foundry is no place for a delicate original. It denies a complexity of form that imposes a disciplinary and enriching simplicity. He cuts, carves, grinds or welds the cast bronze to create unique forms before invariably exposing the natural bronze or oxidising to produce the unique surface finishes that have always been an essential dimension of his work.

SANDRAS “All creativity is based on destruction, the metamorphosis of one thing into another, the end of one entity or state, out of which emerges another' - Pablo Picasso Sandra's new body of work, comprises of arrangements of smashed fragments of vintage bone china teaware, Russian Lomonosov porcelain figurines, Spanish Lladro and Nao porcelain ballerinas or German bisque Kaiser nude figurines, dating back to the 1940s, 50s and 60s. In Sandra's creative recklessness, there is a comprehensive logic to her deliberate madness. Broken references bravery and courage, rebuilding, after devastation. Like rebuilding yourself after a broken love. ‘I see great beauty in vulnerability and fragility, in truth that is how we reveal ourselves and really connect' Sandra states, in a society seeking an image of perfection, Broken has no flimsy facades. Smashing crockery is, after all, a time-honoured feature of the lovers' row. ‘Breakage and fractures are part of the chance and fate of human life, part of our personal history.' When Sandra has looked back on love that has disintegrated, and reflected on the times when she has felt ‘shattered', she has realised that the splintered fragments of herself have come back together to create something more fantastical, better than before. Sandra has found inspiration in the Japanese art of Kintsugi, in which broken bowls were repaired with beautiful golden joins, so fashionable in the 17th century, that people were accused of deliberately smashing valuable pottery so it could be remade in this manner. Collecting is an integral part of Sandra's practice with a continuous search for her handpicked treasures, destined to be broken. Her calculated disintegration and simultaneous resuscitation of these inanimate objects is bewilderingly beautiful. Mesmerising almost, as your eye is drawn to the dynamics of so many shards of protruding porcelain resting on one another, committed to rebuilding with the broken shards one by one in a series of dramatic and positively innovative works. The final configuration becomes a powerful, extraordinary, luxurious and profoundly complex form, with an intricate, attractive spill of decadent colours and splintered shapes.

Lata is a visual artist that specializes in contemporary sculpture and has completed masters in fine art in both India and the Slade School of Art, London. Her work is held in private collections throughout Europe, India, Middle East and the far East. Lata's work reflects upon her own life, the experience of migrating from the East to the West. The journey of migration is depicted in the shape of the circular form, symbolic of the cycle of time. The Circular motif represents how things were, how they changed and how they have returned to natural states of what they were, before Lata's transitional journeys to the west. The geometric form of the rectangle and square represents the present, Lata's life in the west, through the balance, integrity, structure and security that are offered. These basic geometric shapes are either utilised individually or contained within another form. Further exploration is made through the use of materials, texture, colour and pattern. The work offers the sense of re-familiarisation with Lata's origins in India.

BEN G 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 “mistakes� 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.

DAMJAN In his artistic research he seeks to tell his own story, his experiences, personal responses and feelings, as well as those of people and situations he encounters in his daily life. He likes to use traditional hand tools, such as the chisel on stone that leaves a unique trail, a personal mark which transmits a human strength to the sculpture and infinitely reflects the sculptor's thoughts in the stone. He loves working with white marble - Lasa, Carrara, or Sivec, not polishing them to perfection, sanding them , but leaving the surfaces soft, flowing or wavy, so that they all attract and encourage the desire to touch and caress the shape of the sculpture. As well as stone and marble he works in the classic materials of bronze, wood and ceramics. Currently he is a member of the artistic association Prologo from Gorizia, Italy. He lives and works nearby in Nova Gorica, Slovenia.
