A coupling of photography and sculpture, this exhibition encapsulates the chance encounters of four distinct practices which act as a collective gesture towards the limitations and possibilities of each chosen medium.

Chloe Edwards’ practice revolves around the stubborn yet seductive medium of slide. Pushing the slim margins for perfection and destruction that the film dictates, she explores the idea of a stream of consciousness narrative determined by a fixation with stillness, colour and chance.

Light must be stronger and more steadfast than the dark. Phillippa Henley’s latest work is a study on natural colour theory and the magnetic properties of a river. Rippled scooped wood and remembered abstract landscapes play host to a palette of pale cool peppermint and bright citrus yellow.

Shaun Fagan comments on the daily grind that follows Art School and produces 3 dimensional realisations of sketchbook illustrations. Using basic materials, Shaun creates sculptural forms that take their inspiration from stream of consciousness line drawings.

Steff Jamieson’s new photographic works explore the creative possibilities within the colour darkroom. The picture-less photographs question perceptions of photography, redirecting the viewer to a study of colour, light, memory and loss.
