Tim Bailey 

Lingering emotion not apparent in the diction, a mood not visible in the Configuration of the verse. (Kano no Chomei)

A deep emotional feeling embodies yugen, not quite sublime and definitely free from ego. There is a middle way in which no explanation is needed just intuitively sensed. Mumyo Hisho reminds us, that not everything has a literal explanation: ‘It is just as when we look at the sky of an autumn dusk. It has no sound or colour, and yet, though we do not understand why, we somehow find ourselves moved to tears.’

Jude Bryson-Meehan Domestic Studies

Jude’s work delves into the domestic space and the relationship between the observer and the observed. She investigates a loop, found in relation to repeated tasks performed in the home, and in the displacement of a domestic image in a gallery space.

Alain Pezard The Things Downstairs

Alain’s work seeks to explore memories and reinterpret ordinary and banal objects aiming to reveal the hidden beauty of the everyday and the ordinary. Objects are all memories of time, places and people.

Tonie-Carol Patchett A38 Tourist Information Centre

The A38 tourist information centre comprises records of journeys, flights of fancy inspired by site, narratives, images and artefacts made or found in Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Bristol, Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, the West Midlands, Staffordshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. The focus is on the odd, the usually overlooked and the downright ridiculous.
