” My earliest memories of making art involve the use of wax crayons. I can still remember the pleasure of opening a new box of crayons: the distinct smell of the wax, the beautifully colored tips, everything still perfect and unused. Using the first crayon from a new box always gave me a slight pain. Through a novel technique that I have developed, I again find myself working with the familiar form of the crayon. Because of the three-dimensional nature of the crayons, the individual surface images appear to change form as one moves about the gallery space. The images completely disappear when viewed from close up, allowing one to read the horizontally sequenced crayon text and to take in the beautifully colored crayon tips — all the while being reminded of that first box of crayons. ” — Christian Faur
‘ Andy Hixon was born and bred in Manchester in 1982 where he gained a Bachelor of Arts in Illustration. During Andy’s time at university he learned how photography and sculpture could be applied to illustration and these methods form the basis of his work. Sculpture and photography also provide the foundations for the animations Andy produces. He has gained many clients from the music industry by working in this manner, from both underground and mainstream realm. ‘
‘ Arne Quinze presents Stilthouses and Bidonvilles, his houses for the future as a parody on the way how people are living now. Cities are developing with a never ending stream of speed. Without thinking houses are built in a rapid tempo next to each other. Those houses lack a vision of sustainability and functions of the buildings, streets and parks.. aren’t thought through. Bidonvilles and Stilthouses tranquilize and accelerate this process intentionally provoking open communication in a society of human interaction. ‘
