Bed and Table
Bella Kerr

Transient Residence
Gaia Persico

Gaia Persico shows a range of compelling drawings, animations and installation work as part of her continued investigation into tracing memory and place, using subtle, poignant and often amusing interpretations of the immediate world and how we connect with it. Drawn ‘snapshots’ of urban infrastructures are shown alongside those of her rural homeland in Sardinia. more >

Wallpaper
Richard Monahan

From the repetition of figures upon generic wallpaper backgrounds to intricate drawn ‘wallpaper’ pieces, Richard Monahan’s work takes us on a journey where varying narratives develop and unfold.

After Cravan
Ian Giles

That morning he watched the dawn
Carwyn Evans

'That morning he watched the dawn' reflects Evans’ personal experiences while exploring broader social and political shifts in rural Wales.

The work utilises found and specifically produced and often highly crafted objects and images. more >
