Sean Heather


Seans practice aims to question the norms, conventions, values and morals of life in the world we live in.

 

He generates work that mirrors behavior he sees in popular culture to comment on the stripped away reality of our ways of life.

 

His influences come from mass consumerism, identity, sub cultures and the body – explored through humour.

Sam Marsh


Sam Marsh is a British contemporary painter and potter, who combines collage and painting processes with free hand intuitive drawing to produce work with a joyful and humorous feel.

 

Working in a ‘soup’ of colour the works are either created as a gut reaction to an image or story, or they mature slowly sometimes taking many years before being completed. Marsh’s ‘Erottery’, erotic pottery, started out as gifts and then commissions for friends and family and are now popular collectors items.

 

Graduating from Brighton University with a first in Fine Art Painting and 3 awards in 2008 Marsh has exhibited extensively and has work in collections across the UK, Europe and US.

Marcus Walters


Marcus Walters is a renowned artist and designer. He is known for his reductive graphic style, colourful and optimistic imagery and adoption of handcraft elements, including collage and drawing. Since graduating from Central St Martin’s School of Art, Marcus has art directed leading arts magazines (including the Tate magazine), and art directed projects for Eley Kishimoto, Anya Hindmarsh and Clarks.

 

In 2015, Marcus and his wife Hayley – an accomplished textile designer and screen printer – joined forces to create M/H Walters. This collaborative creative venture includes exclusive homewares brand In House, based in their Stroud print studio. Marcus and Hayley’s designs embrace a traditional analogue aesthetic and combine hand-cut graphics and mark making with the screen print process. M/H have worked together on a number of high-profile projects and have produced artwork editions for the V&A Museum and prints for John Lewis.

Lorraine Robbins


Lorraine Robbins is an artist and curator who works across multiple disciplines – including sculpture, performance and drawing. Born in Stroud and based in London and Gloucestershire, Lorraine creates socially-engaged art that is intended to provoke vital discussion.

 

Lorraine was an award winner in the Jerwood Drawing Prize, and was the first guest curator to be invited to work with Gallery Pangolin in London. Most recently, Lorraine has been creating a series of finely-detailed self-portraits to explore the idea of private identity in contemporary western society.

 

In 2015, Lorraine and Soozy Roberts launched the Hardwick Gallery in Cheltenham with their exhibition ‘Perky and Pinky’. A riot of real-life and circus influences, the exhibition explored ‘feminist themes and gender-specific symbols in playfully anarchic manner.’ The centrepiece was a life-sized plaster cast of a woman, styled as a poodle and poised on a plinth, as if ready to jump through a series of bunny hoops. It is a challenging and vibrant work – typical of Lorraine’s style – that raises a smile whilst asking difficult questions about the treatment and representation of women in society.

Daniel Sparkes


Daniel Sparkes works in the emerging genre of Comic Abstraction, which experiments with layering dark motifs over mundane objects or images borrowed (or snatched) from everyday life. Daniel is a self-taught visual artist and began his career by spray painting appendages onto billboards across Bristol. His work is now exhibited across the world.

Daniel’s work has been published in Dazed and Confused, Thames and Hudson, The Face and Die Gestalten Verlag. Clients also include Nike, Warp and Givenchy.
