THE MIND STATE PROJECT | James Tarry

  For years now, I have been trying and failing to come up with a visual project about mental illness. In fact, I've also written several blog posts about this topic after seeing a slew of creatives all discussing how they struggle with mental illness online, but I...

LAST GARDEN | Philip J Brittan

  ‘Come and look at the garden’ were often amongst the first words my mother spoke to me when I visited.  She was a dedicated gardener who gained immense pleasure from the many hours she spent working in the garden that she maintained for sixty years. The results were...

CUBBY’S TARN | Joseph Wright

This is a story of self - place, loss and memory.     Storytelling is one of our defining characteristics, a means of passing knowledge from one generation to another. Without it, much would have been lost to us over the many thousands of millennia we have walked the...

EVERYTHING SEEMED TO BE LISTENING | David Foster

  everything seemed to be listening is a project that uses photography, video and found objects to respond to the work of, and to places associated with the work of, the artist Paul Nash. It is funded by Arts Council England’s Grants for the Arts scheme. A three-week...

WHERENESS: THE LANDSCAPE OF UNCERTAINTY | Chris Younger

“The photograph belongs to that class of laminated objects whose two leaves cannot be separated without destroying them both: the windowpane and the landscape, and why not: Good and Evil, desire and its object; dualities we can conceive but not perceive... Whatever it...

CHORA & TERRAIN VAGUE | Matthew Conduit

COMHARRADH | Lynda Laird

  This work is from a series I made called Comharradh - an audio-visual project which is the result of a sustained engagement with the peat bogs and moorlands of the Isle of Lewis. At heart, it is an ode to the moor; to its component parts, peat, water, sea, and sky;...

HISTORY LESSENS | Tom Wilkinson

  I made this body of work as a response to questions about history and landscape and where and how my own sensibilities and opinions align. The British Isles has a wonderfully rich and robust history: myths and stories that tell tales of romance and desolation that...

MAMETZ WOOD | Rob Hudson

“And so to midnight...”     Welcome to Mametz Wood. This isn't the actual wood. Nor is it July 1916, the date of the First World War battle of that name that claimed thousands of lives in a futile fight for just one square mile of woodland in northern France. This is...

SURFACE INTERVENTION | Mandy Williams

My recent landscapes and photographs of the built environment share an underlying narrative about human interaction or presence and the psychology of a particular place will always lead me to research and initiate a project. The beauty of a landscape isn’t something...
