Ben McLeavy (b. 1981)
Ben studied fine art and has since worked in paint, ink, gifs and now sculpture. His ambitious and provocative piece Labia Intentsive marks a thrilling new direction for the artist, and an evolution from former largely two dimensional works such as the much lauded Dogs in Space series of paintings.
Emily Gosling (b. 1986)
Working mostly in collage and found objects, this show has seen Emily return to paint after almost a decade away from the medium. She is also exhibiting works in clay, with overarching themes of memory, clutter/unclutter and the dichotomies of possession.
Rae Smith (b. 1984)
Rae’s concerns with the nature of value and material desire come to fruition beautifully in her new series. The large work – or more accurately, collection – sees the artist move into a more conceptual sphere, with previous works focusing on a more illustrative, expressive milieu.
Sean Stubbs (b. 1982)
Sean’s critically acclaimed video art has long been a celebrated internet phenomenon, and the move into a gallery space seems supremely apt at this stage in his practice. Working with found footage and frequently viewing the world through a disquieting but colourful lens, these visceral works make the viewer call into question everything they thought they knew.
