Greg Brotherton creates meticulously detailed sculpture, using steel, wood, glass, concrete and unusual found objects. Greatly inspired by the dystopian and political fiction of the early 20th century, his pieces emerge from Kafkaesque imagery around themes of escape and discovery. Brotherton’s vision is one of lonely isolation in a post-industrial world where one being, tinkering away with silent genius, could become the hope of the future.

” I create my paintings by sketching with graphite. Created on wood, my drawings and paintings are filled with graphic patterns, the patterns in the hairs are all details of structures I see around me. I am intrigued by the way we can experience our surroundings with our eyes closed, as if we are able to listen to our own inner self in a more pure way. This is why the females in my work look like they are dreaming with their eyes closed – and feeling pure in their uncovered skin – as if they don’t seem to notice us viewers. But when her eyes look at us – into the world – their naked skin is covered because of the awareness of the world around them. ” – Cil Laurens

” My artwork is based mainly on solitude and the exploration of vulnerability and emotional rawness through colour and the body. I have always been fascinated by the body, it’s curves and blemishes, whether bony or voluptuous, and the beauty that lies in our shared imperfections. I choose to leave the backgrounds blank, or flat with colour and am experimenting with perspective to accentuate the mood of the portraits. I primarily use chalk pastels and work on acid free 300 gram paper. The direct contact with the chalk and paper is intensely visceral and feels somewhat like sculpture. It is a very personal, freehand method but has to be very precise, as mistakes cannot be erased.” – Brett Williams

Holly Andres uses photography to examine the complexities of childhood, the fleeting nature of memory, and female introspection. Typically her images rely on a tension between an apparently approachable subject matter and a darker, sometimes disturbing subtext. She has had solo exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, Istanbul, Turkey and Portland Oregon where she lives and works.

This project is inspired by the sea. Through the unconventional use of seaweed as a main material for a domestic environment, the product plays on the tension between the artistic and the commercial. Ancient cultures have appreciated and utilized seaweeds for different uses. Today, seaweeds are cultivated and harvested on a commercial scale, as a result of a growing interest driven by environmental concerns. The Marine Light lamp combines a metal base and a structure of thin metal strings for the lamp-shade. The seaweeds are applied on the metal strings while still fresh. As they dry, they shrink and obtain the form of the lamp-shade. A mixture of preserving material is applied to preserve them.
