Joanne strives to make works which are of interest to society by referring to human habits and social behaviour within the realms of collage, painting, and installation, often of a public nature and not limited to the confines of a gallery.

Reveling in material and visual flippancy, Adam Gillam fidgets, probes and tweaks the abundant dark matter of studio experimentation and collected pound-shop tat. The resulting objects, images and installations, present a potential momentary resolution between improvisation and refinement.
The works form part of a continuous and evolving search for meaning and understanding through a very physical and hands on experience that is prioritized over a foregrounding in language. Individual pieces often emerge from the physical and intellectual processes of fidgeting, impatience and intuition, employing the rejected and discarded matter of experimentation and speculation; where one work often springs from the destruction of another.

Hermione Allsopp makes sculptural work by collecting objects and furniture and re-creating them into new forms or compositions. These items, which, have been discarded in charity shops become her materials, not inert ones, but ones that carry collective attachments, memories and meanings. As sculpture, they begin to exist as something else and are intended to raise questions about the value and material nature of every day objects. The work also reflects on wider topics related to consumerism, psychological and physical interiors and exteriors, ideas of taste and notions of desiHermione Allsopp graduated from MA Fine Art at UCA Canterbury in 2012.

Laura Hathaway's works examine the properties of pigments and oils against surfaces; focusing on the effects of layering, opacities and light. Investigating how paper and ink respond to different materials she places wood, glass and paper together to create 3D sculptural forms. The assembly of elements has evolved into a ritualistic process involving repetition and re-adjustment before a composition is completed.
At the heart of this creative exploration is an interest in an experimental process - with an aim to challenge traditional ideas of painting and print making.
Laura trained at Falmouth University completing a BA in textile design. In 2014 she was awarded the Jubilee Stores Start Up Studio Program funded by Arts Council England and most recently was shortlisted for the Jerwood Artist Bursary Award. She has exhibited regularly in London, including The Arthub Gallery and Vyner Street Gallery and New York at Rochester Contemporary Art, as well as Aspex Gallery Portsmouth and K6 Gallery Southampton.
