“People don’t give themselves the freedom to think about doing nothing as something that is radical in itself.”
Derrick Adams

Tim Fishlock
99 Problems - Blue Velvet
£3,250

Tim Fishlock's works challenge the relentless pressure to consume, the resulting huge heaps of defunct products and our increasingly unnatural attitude to food production. He implores us that it’s simply not good enough to keep calm and carry on.

Fishlock's approach has a heavy air of cynicism and misanthropy, yet the craft is so accomplished and the detail so intricate, it’s never less than thrilling to look at.

Mark Powell
Head To The Coast
£2,500

"The decision of what to keep and what to take from the map or postcard I choose is a delicate one. They have to work together like in a dance, with the ink as the music."

Dave White
Summer's Breath
£8,000

"When you have a moment of contact and intimacy with any animal or bird it is a timeless, priceless moment no matter what is going on in the world or your life. It is forgotten and the present beauty and love can be felt as a bond stronger than worry or suffering. A reminder of how beautiful life is."
