    Rose Robson I subvert traditional taxidermy, creating swarm-like sculptures from a range of different bird skins. As an anatomical impossibility the work becomes something of a drawing in space, mapping out the long cylinders created when birds circle and coil in the sky, and channelling the dramatic impact of a swirling swarm..

  • Caroline Robson My paintings are a poetic response to the feeling of being in a garden. Gardens evoke many responses for me; longing and nostalgia, hope and optimism. These sensations are expressed in my paintings, creating a subliminally evocative image. I am interested in growth and decay, texture and pattern and the visual delight of nature.

  • Patricia Bentley Using landscape/seascape this body of work explores the concept of other realms, unworldly places beyond this time and space - even prehistoric. On further examination the viewer may glimpse a world of a different time and space ... an introduction to places we may otherwise not know... but inwardly suspect they exist.

    Brian Bushell

    Alongside figure painting, Brian's work explores the beauty and lyricism of the transience between life and death, and between death and decay. Working in oils Brian presents a mesmerising contemplation of the notion that life is never still even after it has passed. Brian was born in Hackney London.

    Janie Grout

    I take my inspiration from the everyday, the beauty in the objects that enable us to go about our activities without giving them a second thought. An ongoing catalogue of domestic portraits explores the objects that through persistence and longevity carve out their own stature; the overlooked is given precedence.
