Adam Hennessey paints structures and spaces that allow for a meandering approach where
links and jokes are constructed. Whether he's picturing objects washed up in a lobster net, a
worm's nightmare or a painting infected with mould, they all realize a personal vision of the
stuff that surrounds us.
Norman Hyams makes figurative paintings from a diverse source of found images and
personal photographs that he gleans from his immediate environment. He reacts instinctively
to images as he progresses, following a brief in his mind which remains open. Hyams tries to
fuse these elements in his work attempting to make paintings that allow him the freedom to
inhabit an imagined space that holds a sense of his past, present and future.
Marijke Vasey looks to create Rococo grotesqueries as a means of giving the wordless a
voice. Combining things that are unalike, gives rise to unsettling concoctions and
metamorphic forms. Different painterly languages juxtapose one and other, creating ruptures.
Poured paint seeks to claim new peripheries for the bodies of the suggested creatures and
mute-ations that inhabit these imaginary spaces. Paint is viewed as a mass of contradictions,
both fascinating and pathetic, ridiculous and soothing.
