For Richard Kenton Webb, drawing, painting, and printmaking are at the heart of his practice. He believes that painting is an intrinsic human language and will never disappear. For centuries, the artist’s imagination and the alchemy of materials have fused to create truly remarkable works. Words can fail us, but by engaging with materials, an artist can translate his or her inner world into a composition. The materials and our imaginations can fuse into visual poetry, communicating a hidden realm. In this respect, the artist makes the unseen visible.
Svetlana Ochkovskaya makes immersive, disorientating, otherworldly installations and costumes that are mythic representations of her worldview. She is curious about things that are deemed weird or different. The artist also explores the idea of the fantastic, strange, and 'other', thus producing her wondrous world of curiosities. Such a world is inhabited by creatures that are neither human nor alien, real nor imaginary, while the glowing environments and tactile costumes bend the fragile boundaries of our perceived reality.
Frances Gynn’s work has been informed by nature and humankind’s detrimental engagement with the natural world. She began with an interest in something she called ‘strange attractors’, but not in the chaos theory sense; rather, she was referring to oddities in nature. These were mostly human-made objects found in the environment, either discarded or intentionally placed – she was interested in the visual effect of these objects in nature.
