Lidia Carda, Anna Goodwin, Gemma Hayter, Alex Jones, Jennifer Kingston-Lee, Annie Pryer-Coppins, Brooke Steadman, Libby Strutt, Zophani Watts, Lilly Weedon-Borg, Ali Westcott.
Carda’s practise makes bodily casts using delicate materials to explore the ephemeral nature of the human body.
Goodwin deals with perceptions of the figure, exploring scale, shape and negative space.
Hayter works with recycling to explore colour expression and create an abstract landscape.
Jones’ paintings take motifs from the urban environment and reconfigures them within a language of abstract works.
Kingston-Lee works with ideas of authenticity, taking isolated compositions from gestural mark making and translating them into delicate paintings.
Pryer-Coppins uses the term ‘relational aesthetics’ as a basis for her interactive and immersive artworks.
Steadman overtly uses a medley of symbolism from the digital world such as online games and social media and imbed it into her expressive paintings of women from contrasting eras. She reconfigures the ‘image’ of women.
The starting point of Strutt’s practice is language through an engagement with the materials into glass and paper relief.
Watts works with found motifs that are transformed into vibrant geometric abstractions.
Weeden-Borg creates expressive contemporary portraits and manipulates emotions using colour and form.
Westcott’s painting practice takes as its starting point bodies in motion and dancers to create abstract compositions.
