Artists' Statement:

1-Ann-Caroline Breig
“My work evokes thoughts how things are connected in life”.
The mix of materials, the use of loud and wide variety of colours, creates an energetic excitement and a visual overload. The crazy hectic world is connected to everything in the paintings. This reality-poetry and philosophizing is a fast automatic translation from dreams and thoughts to action and happenings, with an overtone of the unstoppable and unpredictable strength of nature and our drives.

“I am interested in the patterns and consequences of behavior, those moments when our guard is down and we are vulnerable to criticism and exposure. The lack of interaction and singularity of the figures in my work is significant as it suggests a sense of dislocation, of an inability to be accepted. These are alienated white collar workers thrust into stressful and potentially hopeless situations, environments where the situations are hazardous, where the outside world serves firstly as a back-drop to feats of outstanding endeavour and secondly threatens to engulf the protagonists. The characters are malcontents, unable to vocalize their emotions they become isolated but share their unpleasant experiences with their colleagues”.

3-James Jessop
In his paintings, James Jessop remixes horror trash and eerie kitsch: creepy skeleton and cute girl’s faces, spooky forest ponds, black cats and blood dripping letters are well-know clichés of the macabre. Jessop adds them up in an original and personal manner.
The paintings are drive-in movie sized thrills. With his street smart graphics that celebrate zombie flicks, glory comics and cheeky sense of Scooby Doo mystery.
Like billboards, emblems of entrancing goth-pop, a panorama where things that go bump in the night come to life. Wickedly funny and eerily plausible Jessop serves up an advertisement for the nightmare of choice. Enter if you dare.

4-Jasper Joffe
“I paint because otherwise I become depressed from watching too much TV. Although people think painting requires lots of ideas and preparatory studies, I find that it is best to approach it in a mood of empty desperation. Doing it, I listen to CDs made from music I have downloaded from the internet. Christina Aguilera’s upbeat sexy songs are very good for focusing the mind on painting good paintings.
When I talk to students, art lecturers or friends about painting, I have to conceal my fundamental belief in the activity, rather like some religious freak who doesn’t feel like justifying himself for the millionth time to a bunch of atheists: I conceal my certainty that painting is the best thing in the world”.

5-Peter Lamb
Peter Lamb’s paintings are littered with remnants from the past, physical objects from a bygone age that act as a glue adhering past and present, in some cases the canvas is literally held to the frame by frayed nylon cord as if some ageing eccentric has carried out a sad but endearing patch up job in a desperate attempt to preserve the past. The balding and moth eaten trophies, now a metaphor for “a once Great Britton” or a Britton that could no longer sustain a society rife with social injustice, financial inequality, and class prejudice. The random and chaotic nature of theses works, suggests an over turning of the established order not only socially and politically, but also creatively, they are tangible physical reminders of a past, a past that can be revaluated, misinterpreted, altered, distorted and even denied.
