Artists 2013

Alice Kettle (Winchester)

Alice Kettle uses textile as her primary medium and has work in collections such as the Crafts Council London, the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester, the Museo Internationale delle Arti Applicate Oggi, Turin, Italy. She is currently Senior Research Fellow at Manchester Metropolitan University and is Visiting Professor at the University of Winchester. www.alicekettle.com*

Amelia Tuttiett (Bishops Waltham)

Amelia's practice involves creating large vessels from either stoneware or raku clay using a 'coiling' method, producing a 'wobbly' overall appearance. The vessels are fired four times in order to create the finished piece. The final firing (and most exciting stage) uses a sawdust reduction technique when the vessels become 'alive' as the various glazes react in a wonderful kaleidoscopic infusion. www.amelia-tuttiett.co.uk*

Water Vessel: detail

Andrew Carnie (Winchester)

Andrew is an artist and lecturer at Winchester School of Art (Fine Art). He often works with scientists using time-based media and installation. In a darkened space layered images appear and disappear on suspended screens, the developing display absorbing the viewer into an expanded sense of space and time through the slowly unfolding narratives that evolve before and around them. www.tram.ndo.co.uk/artworks.htm*

A Change of Heart. YYZ Toronto. Canada

Andrew Reaney (Winchester)

Action and interaction form an integral part of Andrew's practice. He is interested in ideas of the trace and impression; it's materiality and connections with the body. His recent work explores the performative aspects of sculpture encompassing ideas of potential, balance and the underlying notion of failure. www.bru-ha.com*

'Potential Structure' 2013 (installation view)

Ann Louise Smith (Marlborough, Wiltshire)

Ann is a textile artist who works with pattern and print. Her current work explores how cloth takes up the memory of objects which are placed on them and how this changes over time. The unexpected marks and shapes create unusual patterns, which are then explored further with stitch, traditional printmaking and digital skills. www.artsthread.com/p/AnnSmith/gallery*

Pink rust

Anna Cady (Winchester)

Anna’s short films often incorporate pinhole photography and animation. Her intention, in making films co-creatively with artists and non artists, is to enable conversations about differing points of view. International screenings include Tate Modern and Sundance Film Festival. She has 16 films installed at Mottisfont (National Trust) until November. www.annacady.com*

Up High (film still from Mottisfont exhibition)

Anna Marie Andersen (Netheravon, Nr. Salisbury)

Anna Marie Andersen is a graduate of Winchester School of Art. Her interest lies in that which cannot be seen by the naked eye but is being explored and registered empirically and made visible by the use of high-tech apparatus - versus the extra-sensory exploration and the registration made by using the human body's innate abilities. She paints, draws, sculpts, writes, photographs and videos. www.ArtofSila.co.uk*

Geophysical Survey

He is Hampshire Poet Laureate 2012-13. www.brianevansjones.com*

Caroline Hall (Winchester)

At the root of my practice is a process which documents my attempts to capture a looped video projection with paint. Sometimes the paintings stand on their own, and sometimes they form part of a site-specific installation. I am intrigued by the boundaries between video and painting; between transience and permanence; between the contemporary and the traditional. www.carolinehall.net*

Blackfriars-westbound, mixed media installation

Clare and Paul Jefferson Jones (Hayling Island)

Lost Hour 2013

Consuelo Simpson (Dummer)

Walking is integral to Consuelo Simpson’s practice and her current body of work is an affectionate look at the countryside surrounding her Hampshire home. The work is largely shaped by mark making using stitch, wire and the drawn line, frequently taking the mark off the surface. www.consuelosimpson.com*

Place & Time (charcoal and stitch)

Dave Gibbons (Colden Common)

Photographer and exhibiting artist for 10 days., Winchester 'native', photographer, artist and educator, (Dave Gibbons) draws upon a naturally playful approach to photography. Much of his work explores where the line between spectator and participant blurs and as such he finds ‘creative gatherings’ a rich source of inspiration. www.dave-gibbons.com*

self portrait

Deborah Skinner (Andover)

Deborah works primarily with film installation and printmaking, which she uses to communicate different experiences and perceptions of autism and synesthesia. Her films are glimpses of another existence, sometimes uncomfortable snapshots of fragmented information, distorted sound and disordered vision. With these differing perspectives she attempts to connect the viewer to an alternative reality.

Writing Out (Video Installation)

Di Peisley (Nr Winchester)

Di works with video, installation, photography, painting and at present is concentrating on collage. Combining images from various sources and completely out of context instigates a playful wonderland which, in turn, creates another dialogue delving deeper into the unconscious. Di has been the Educational Artist in Residence at the Chapel Art Studios. www.di@dipeisleyart.co.uk*


Dr Alwyn Marriage (Guildford)

Alwyn is a widely published poet and author. Her career has included being a university lecturer in Philosophy, Chief Executive of two international literacy and literature NGOs and Editor of a journal. She is now Managing Editor of Oversteps Books and gives numerous poetry readings all over Britain and abroad. Blog www.marriages.me.uk*


Elizabeth Saunders (Hedge End)

My work is based on a narrative of my own memories and journeys through life- '...self and world...thought and feeling...' exploring, inserting and embedding threads into fabric. The expression of imagination, fragility, motivation, experience and determination unfold within my work aiming to make the invisible memories - visible.

Memory Through Time

Elle Ford (Winchester)

Elle Ford is a graduate of Winchester School of Art and works from The Chapel Arts Studios. A current theme in Elle’s work is Carbonisation; transforming an object into a carbonised facsimile of its original “being”. www.elleford.com*

Moving Skull

Helen Northcott (Winchester)

Helen's work explores aspects of our humanity, observing simple 'truths' and expressing these through sculpture, video, performance and print. She is interested in structures which offer a position of control through the strength they suggest despite their potential for both balance and imbalance. www.tumblr.com/blog/helenlouisenorthcott*
