SUSAN CLARKE “My work deals with themes of mortality and ritual within the death of animals, exposing the fragility in their lives and the inferiority human treat them with. I aim to make my viewer contemplate their own existence within this world. I use decoration and adornment to disguise the dismembered animal limbs I incorporate into my prints, manipulating their bodies into trophy like ornaments. The mediums that I use to express my ideas and concepts are printmaking, mainly etching and lithography.”

J.R.W DAVIES “My name is Will, I am a russian doll, inside me are so many more people to be, each more meagre than the last, but more delicately painted and less hollow. I am a citizen of the world. I am an unthinking atheist”

JAMES FRENCH “ I have recently become one of those new-fangled “real people”. Three months ago I graduated from a Fine Art course at Kingston Uni, where I bumbled around making art works… which I am still doing now. I usually make images, which are concerned with mutating and mutilating the aesthetics of advertising. Well I’m feeling a bit more industrious, I like to make films. It’s a very different medium, but I like to think they’re the nearest thing you can get to bad photoshop in a moving image form. My work is often satirical, but I don’t like to think of it as parody. It is often political; but it doesn’t “have politics”. It is often critical; but it’s not anti-art, it’s not really anti-anything. If you’re interested, here is my degree-show film:”

HANNAH GODDARD “I am currently studying for an MA in Cultural Studies at the University of Leeds. My interests include magical realism; postcolonial theory; feminist cultural theory; psychoanalysis; and cupcakes. An aspiring academic, I thinks a lot about culture and theory but never really get round to writing anything down (perhaps not the wisest approach). I find the interrogation of culture and of language incredibly stimulating and it is something I hope to continue throughout my (academic or otherwise) career and life.”

STEVEN PAUL HEDLEY “I believe design doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Successful design comes through conversation, consultation, and exchange of ideas. Through this discussion exciting, unexpected ideas are generated and different perspectives evolve into new possibilities.”

PABLO DE LABORDE LASCARIS “As a result of a transient lifestyle, I have been led to re-evaluate and reflect on my position both as an individual and as an artist. To do this I have set about on a succession of playful studies, which build upon the associations between the unpredictable nature of the objects I use and the method in which I choose to animate them. My work aims to produce a cycle or exchange between ideas by conveying a subtle conversation between performance and sculpture, which is suggestive of time and motion.”

PETE MAY “My practice is a parody on the ideas of gender, in particular, drag. Drag is a play on what it is to be a woman, but what happens when a man takes on the role of a man becoming a woman that is still not quite human.Through a mixed media practice I explore what it is to become another, in my case Dolly with a Dick. Dolly began life as a sock monkey, soon I began to personify this toy into something greater, and creating a life that surrounded it. I soon devised a history, a job and even a love life.Dolly with a Dick is based on a life, one that grows and develops over time, taking influence from what is around her and current events. Her future is as unpredictable as her past but never dull.”

JIM ROBERTSON “Stemming from an interest in painting exposed as a means of record my practice explores social engagement, community and collectivism whilst investigating conceptualisation through modes of presentation. The materials and processes used are selected for their associations with construction techniques, re-use, reclamation and erasure as a form of assembly. These choices inform an exploration of the architectonic and hybridity through presentation. Appropriation and found images, sourced from printed ephemera, are used to reflect my developing socio-political interpretations, examining the politics of representation and the interface between aesthetics and politics. The potential of on-line resources and communication, alongside other digital aspects, are increasingly dominant to my interests. Additionally, recent models of social intervention practiced by artist collective WochenKlausur provide the basis for a complex exploration of the relationship between the aesthetic object and interventionist approaches to art.”

NICK WOOD “IF WE THINK that a constellation is a chance arbitrary visual formation of often widely disparate stars, delineated and designated purely by the human mind, then I feel we come close to describing our human relationships. This is what I want to discuss in my work.”
