Paul Watson—artist, curator, book artist, photographer, web strategist, print-maker, occasional writer—was born in England and has lived in various parts of the country, most recently settling in Brighton.
His recent work has been in the media of print-making and book arts, but he has a long-standing interest in collage, assemblage, photography, and drawing.
In the early formation of these paintings the primarily interest was making semi-abstract figure paintings that were related to much body based work of the time.
As the work progressed each form became minimal in comparison to earlier work, via colour reduction and eventual multiplication, allowing the paintings to achieve more in their own work and development.
Françoise Duvivier is a French artist working in a variety of mixed media, including collage (digital and traditional),
doll art and masks. Her artwork has appeared in exhibitions, in books and on
CDs and record covers internationally.
Françoise’s collages are assembled from layers of paper, photocopies, and fragments
recovered from newspapers. Her latest field of investigation is doll art, which she has
come to after a period of working in mask-making.
Michael Kemp has been haunting the Western Isles since 1950 and makes no apologies for it. He scrawls short pieces of text from time to time in order to ascertain whether he still exists. He navigates in a parallel world, and is currently looking for a rational explanation.
London-born, itinerant mongrel, quietly raging. There's no particularly wistful anecdote
about methods to insert here, as most of the work seems to fight its way out of the junk
circus of my brain as an errant sentence, then develops further by accident.
I prefer to write from unflattering angles, under the influence of Dr Hunter S. Thompson,
Poppy Z. Brite, Burroughs, post-punk, over a decade at the “patient” end of the medical
spectrum, and England’s many shades of winter.
Hardeep Sangha was born in the city of Wolverhampton, England, on the very day, one hundred years prior,
legendary gunslinger, Doc Holliday, took down ex-army scout, Mike Gordon, with one flawless shot. He currently
resides in Leicester,
where he spends the majority of his day perfecting the art of the quick draw and compiling
endless lists of words, ready for the hour when the urge to write seizes him.
