” My work as sculpture is inspired by my interest in the embellishment that can occur during the marriage of gradual ingestion and manipulation of reference. Each work, although deviated, are reconstructions of previously existing models; I utilize these animal forms to illustrate the disparity between reality and remembered experience. As the works evolve into an aesthetic state closer to realism while simultaneously referential origins based in truth degenerate, the boundaries between reality and falsity become blurred and permeable.” – Christy Langer

” My current studio practice considers the continuous process of transformation that materials and objects undergo throughout time. I create abstract, unidentifiable objects that evoke or depict a sense of the transient through the creative and constructive process and the overall sculptural form. I am interested in the evocative and emotive qualities of colour and its potential to direct and inform the viewer’s understanding of the work. I often consider the materiality of colour: the superficial qualities of applied surfaces verses colour that is intrinsic to the material itself and solid throughout. Sculpture defines a direct physical relationship between the viewer and the objects that they encounter and a conscious use of scale reaffirms that relationship. I make work that is relatable to the human body in scale to reinforce the physicality of material within my work.” – Derrick Piens

” I grew up surrounded by towering ceramic forms made by my father. My early work was very much influenced by machines, until my 20′s when after studying 3d design at art college i discovered a love/obsession with the human face which is still my driving force. My influences are varied but include contemporary dance,the writings of Carl Jung and Ian McGilchrist & Siddhartha Gautama. I believe that art is more important than ever as a way of utilising the whole of our brains, Especially in the West were we are so chronically stuck in literal thought. ” – Philip Wakeham

” My art today, is the convergence of beauty and emotion through the elegance of line and form. In my work, the themes and arrangements are uncomplicated, but invites the viewer to plunge in and bring their own opinion, speculation and interpretation to the forefront. ” – Gerrel Saunders
