Logic + geometry + space form the common denominator in all Maiko Takeda pieces. It’s a world in which the simple will seem complicated and order turns to chaos. But do not be afraid to indulge, as at the end you will always find that the common denominator stands (right there at the bottom where it belongs). Maiko Takeda grew up in a post boom Tokyo where she quickly was faced with the challenge of wanting to create products of individual and timeless quality in a country slowly coming to a grinding halt. This meant that she more and more looked to areas outside of fashion and pop culture for impulses, exploring the city by foot, finding inspiration in the smallest and most random of things. Within the pieces, there is the juxtaposition of various elements. Environmental influences such as shadow, wind and gravity, create an experience of wonder and bewilderment for the adorned. The form of her work itself can never be its sole feature as the extra element is always seeking to transcend the expectations of the wearer as part of the work. After having moved to London she studied Jewellery Design BA(Hons) at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and is currently doing a Masters in Millinery at the Royal College of Art. Her work experience includes Issey Miyake, Stephen Jones, Philip Treacy and Erickson Beamon.

Peta Clancy has predominantly worked with the medium of photography. Recently her practice has expanded into new mediums: performance, sculpture, video and installation. Her photographic practice points to the ‘expanded’ field of photography. She has explored the porous membrane of the body interrogating the smooth surface of the photograph: piercing, crumpling, creasing and embedding it in wax.

” Swooning over lush National Geographic landscapes for years inspired me at an early age, alerting my subconscious that I was to be a photographer. Upon my entrance into the BFA program for Photography at Montclair State University, my intent was to hone my skills and focus successfully on travel imagery, however this training ground sparked my conscious with new ideas, themes, and image making techniques, I was inundated with a zest to create. Now, women, water, and special processes are my main dig. It is my desire as a young artist to enhance and support feminist and bodily dialogue with images that interact with people and settings that may at times appear unnerving, but lovely.” – Haylee Anne

Foodscapes by Carl Warner

The ‘Foodscapes’ are created in Carl’s London studio where they are built on top of a large purpose built triangular table top. The scenes are photographed in layers from foreground to background and sky as the process is very time consuming and so the food quickly wilts under the lights. Each element is then put together in post production to achieve the final image.
