Will Creswickfirst developed his photographic style documenting the lives of people skateboarding in Newcastle and slowly began to capture moments of zemblanity and irony in juxtapositions hidden amongst the ordinary. Shooting primarily on film, his recent work engages with human consumption and captures the feeling of dissatisfaction left in contrast to the beauty of the natural world. Using politics and societal injustice as inspiration, Will's work highlights the insignificance of human design and the ephemeral nature of life on earth.

In Eliza's own words: 'I’m currently on the Villa Lena artist residency in Tuscany where I’ve been swimming a lot in the pool, the reflection of light on the water and the shape of bodies distorted by the different angles when under water have become very fascinating to me. I made the painting with some blue pigment I found in the art store here which is incredibly vibrant, the colour instantly made me think of swimming and being submerged.'
George is a mixed media artist whose primary focus is transforming still images into new and extended narratives through collage and physical manipulation. These are often explored with abstract, unconventional materials in order to achieve the stylistic result that he produces.
‘With the Oranj poster, titled: ‘a glass of red’, I used photos that I had previously made and turned them into monotone acetate prints. This acetate was then subjected to a heat source in order to bring out more texture in the ink. The sheets were then overlaid to give a 3 dimensional feeling, which was then scanned. The final component of the piece was to reprint the scan and to dip it in a deep red solution to give it its vibrant colour.’
McGregor lives and works in Los Angeles. With a cavalier approach to colour and mark making, he creates unconventional, wide-eyed renderings of traditional subject matter, with a focus on still life and landscape.

Emilie Inger Camilla Branford is a half-English, half-Swedish multidisciplinary artist from Kent. She is currently interested in exploring her identity, by creating playful and mischievous characters through referencing pop-culture iconography from both countries.
Emilie's art is heavily influenced by characters and themes from her childhood, for instance Donald Duck, otherwise known as “Kalle Anka”. She also likes to incorporate her own outfits and personality into the characters she creates, making them a kind of abstract self portraiture.
For this piece “Molly’s Hand,” Jonny zeroed in quite literally on Molly’s hands: hands adorned with big silver rings on almost every finger, hands that are infamous on the restaurant floor of Sessions Arts Club, for their percussive clink of metal on glass. It’s a sound that reverberates through the 18th century grade II listed courthouse during service. A sound that keeps the orchestra in harmonious rhythm, as it beats out the sweet, sweet melody that is Sessions Art Club.

Emma is a London based Graphic Designer, with a specialism in designing for the food, drink and hospitality sector.
In Emma's words 'The poster pays homage to the moon and soil worshiping practices of biodynamic viticulture. I wanted to capture the charisma and personality of the wines made using these methods - they're bright, full of energy and sometimes a bit rough around the edges.'
Josephine's paintings feature situations that aren't as far fetched as melting clocks but still feel surreal and magical. Josephine has a love for iconic furniture. Her paintings are her way of showing her appreciation for beautiful design, by taking items of furniture out of their usual manicured setting and letting them work harmoniously with the imperfectly perfect design of nature.

She’s exhibited her work at various galleries including The Saatchi, Groucho Club, 10 Greek Street, The Letherby Gallery, The Limbo Gallery, The Columbia and Joseph Froissart Gallery Paris.

The thinking behind it was inspired by my favourite scene in the movie Ratatouille where Remy is tasting food combinations with his eyes closed and letting the tastebuds do the talking.’
