" Do they belong in a museum? Are they naked and heavily-deformed members of a travelling freak show? Or perhaps the result of some brutal experiment involving Sloth from 'The Goonies'? We'll let you make up your own mind but we call them Bodily Candles. As each of them burns, one grimaces and the other just suffers in silence, but this is no reason for you to feel sad – think of it as though you're sending them off to a better place where they will no longer be mocked for their sinister physical appearance. Meticulously hand crafted and highly detailed, they may be utterly freakish but these curious prosthetic ornaments still possess an unexplainable charm and make a refreshing change from your average twee candle."

" My sculptures are crafted from a personal vernacular of beauty. Referencing objects from the mineral world, I am inspired by the endless possibilities of surface and composition. My imagination’s interpretation of these objects flow into the work, often bypassing what might rationally be found in nature. This blurred line between reality and created reality intrigues me. Minerals that are mined for ceramic supply enter my studio in their pummeled state and are transformed into the visual essence of their original existence. This redemptive quality reflects my journey as an artist striving to incorporate the seemingly disparate concepts of ancient world and modern life. It is fulfilling to convey elemental inspiration through a modern studio practice; using industrialized processes to bring my naturally inspired work into the vernacular of contemporary ceramics." - Renee Brown

" Nanjing Hongfeng Technology Park is on the east end of Nanjing Municipal region, as part of the Nanjing Economic and Technological Development Zone. This industrial park is situated on an enclave sandwiched by two major railway lines, the Shanghai-Nanjing Railway and the Shanghai-Nanjing Passenger Train Railway. The urban design of this nearly 1 square kilometer site was also done by One Design. The buildings along transportation corridors are set to form noise barriers to the outside traffic, as well as a momentary horizontal landmark through the several seconds visual encounter to high-speed train passengers. On the other side, courtyards can take on a very urban character or become landscape pockets, connected with the central park and commercials."
Matt Ritchie aka Matt136 - A child of the 1970s, Matt’s work surveys an eclectic array of different sub-cultures, including everything from Battle Star Galactica and The Micronauts to classic comic books, video games and cartoons. His range of interests are only matched by his encyclopedic expertise on each subject. Matt’s childhood memories serve as an endless catalogue for all-things-cool, listening to him explain his work is like having an docent into a limitless underground world. Working in his signature style, Matt’s wood-cut paintings are distinct in both their small scale and crisp aesthetic. Drawing from the bold graphic artistry of comic books and tattoo illustration, Matt’s work remains steadfastly clean and minimal. Being that each piece is composed on cut wood, the work borders on sculptural, all while retaining the bold illustrative aesthetic that Matt cultivates. (viaSpoke Art Gallery)
