Zenon Gradkowski

Zenon Gradkowski

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.

Michael Kemp

Michael Kemp

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.

Alex Kemp

Alex Kemp

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

Hardeep Sangha

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.
