Jeremy Eaton’s practice is concerned with investigating lineages of social space and materiality through sculpture, print-making and writing. Jeremy investigates both the material and social conditions that have contributed to the formation of spaces and their attendant psychological, political and cultural conditions. By drawing material responsiveness and emotional reflection back into the frame of historical research Eaton aims to create situations in which bodily interactions with the past become possible.

Camille Hannah’s paintings predicate a model of painting that is concerned with the frame of technology; her works are embedded in twenty-first century abstraction while conceptually vested in digital and screen technologies.
Hannah examines the influence of the screen on painting as object and surface, through notions of movement and the perception of interactivity - relating to a virtual form of tactility. Traversing the paradox between the prohibition of touch in relation to digital technology and the correlation that enacts the ‘erotics’ of painting. Her works exploit a variable experience of scale. Drawing the viewer close and yet distancing, at the threshold of vision and
touch.

Seven Valencia’s works with labour intensive materials such as alloys, glass, stone and polyurethane. Her works act as conduits for an undomesticated otherness and the omnipresent abyss existing behind and within the profane. Valencia imbues a mythologised system against the backdrop of reality.
