Stains and imperfections are the embellishment of history on an object or surface; they tell a story of human presence through absence, where marks are a trace of interaction.

RUTH BLOWER

My practice deals with the subject of my identity. I focus on processes to create my work starting with drawing, then mark making and painting. My work is mainly 2D based as I feel this depicts the quality of the lines that I like to achieve.

I reflect on true identity, visually represented and influenced through my personal interests. My exploration is the struggle and complexities between art and craft, both utilitarian and beautiful.

LAURA CARTER

I use organic shapes and tactile materials to create sculpture. I allow the materials to do what occurs naturally in order to capture a moment. I want to build something tall, which draws the eye upwards. My obsession with animals is apparent in the use of fur within my sculptures.

JIMMY CAVE

I use the open flame of a blowtorch or heat from a soldering iron to leave tonal marks on a material such as wood or canvas. This allows me to form images with fire as a metaphor of creation through destruction, there can be no creation without first there being destruction.

I am currently interested in making sculpture. I’m attracted by bright, bold colours and the repetition of refined manufactured objects. I manipulate these to create forms, taking a material out of its context to create something new. I want to make us think about that object in a different way.

The photographic medium is defined by its particular limitations. As we undergo the transition from analogue to digital, these limitations are threatened by a new wealth of possibility. Using the questions raised by the digital medium as a point of departure, I have been working to investigate the nature of what constitutes photographic integrity.

ALEX CUNNINGHAM

Currently, I’m interested in materiality and discovering the potential of the materials I use in my work. Rather than using traditional sculptural materials, I prefer to use uncommon ones, such as packaging tape. I believe the use of unique materials creates distinctive conceptuality in my work.

Using the body as both subject and material, my work explores issues of conformity and non-conformity. There is a large autobiographical element that is fundamental to my practice and shapes its direction.

In my work things don’t have to relate however they can still exist side by side in some free concept. It can be, for example, figurative, creative and free from commitment. I make work that resonates on a deeply emotive level acting as a vehicle to reconnect with a ‘place’ or memory deep in my subconscious.

I find interest within peoples relationships to, yet alienation from the inert; the objects that belong to us, yet outlast us. I intend to capture the fleeting memories of their interactions with these objects, layering footage onto the object to create a record of interaction.

MARIE FURTER

My work is symbolic and gestural of heart and mind. Mental phenomena are in some respects non-physical. Realisation of sentient is the impetus to my practice, underpinned by the notion of ‘Cartesian dualism’. Stitch forms the skeleton to pieces, thus mimicking the ethereal nature of feeling.

BETH GADD

My work deals with The Self, and the effect that living in our current society has on us as individuals and social groups. I am particularly interested in the physical aspect of this, and my work is a response to issues such as the size zero culture and what is typically considered to be ‘ugly’.

The use of soap, water, ink and dye is recorded on video where the recording is the transient medium itself. The key conceptual aspect of the work is the transcendent nature of space and the array of relative existential and cerebral parallel planes.

My practise is about culture, the things I love and that make me happy. In this project I have gone back to my roots of drawing and painting. My method is simplicity and realism done in a delicate manner.

SAM HUMBLE

Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari’s concept of ‘becoming-animal’ rejects metaphor or symbolism; it perceives identity as being a multiplicitous process rather than a static phenomenon. I deconstruct and reform the human and the animal figure mutually in the act of drawing.

I work with a wide range of materials often changing between organic and man-made. The aim of my work is to arouse curiosity and invite touch through its tactile qualities. I am influenced by symbolism, nature and the sublime, using anything that sparks my imagination and incorporating it into my art.

My work is about space. The spaces

around us, the spaces we occupy, the spaces we might not notice and the

space in our heads. Through the use of thread and wire I make forms to

fill these spaces injecting complexity into often overlooked spaces.

My preoccupation with the infinite began as a child. I suffered anxiety attacks when exposed to scientific and mathematical paradoxes at a young age. Repetitive tasks and playful experiments appeal to both my anxious nature and my inner child, which in turn helps me to process complex thought through simple processes.

I am interested in the concept of the uncanny and how it is experienced as feelings of unease within our surroundings revealing the strange in what appears mundane. My work is concerned with invasions and interaction with space, highlighting its deeply affecting power and relationship to the body.

MIRANDA MOHIT I use a feminine approach as a formula for creating something fragile, sensory, fleshy and tangible, expressing a complex intimate narrative and uncertainty. Materials and concepts juxtapose a psychological vision. Identity, childhood, journey and memory are themes often explored through my practice.

SAMUEL MORGAN My work deals with the alienation that the contemporary art world creates towards the general public and what separates ‘high’ art from society and the community. By using a naïve painting style and clashing colours, I try to convey these ideas through the aesthetics of the painting.

I explore ideas of street art as a legitimate art form that can work in different surroundings. I have experimented with different materials making posters and now plastics. I try to convey similar feelings in a gallery as I do in my work on the streets.

My practice follows the romanticism of evolutionary psychology and the argument within where the artistic mechanism is an adaptation, not by-product, of natural selection. Our innate response to ‘Landscapes,’ whose intricate harmony speak to us of an order that lies deep in ourselves, is marked indelibly with the sign of human dominance.
