Michelle Hannah:?Šf&d

Michelle Hannah is a Glasgow based artist. ‘«£There is a strong sense of romanticism in my work, mainly in the roles which sound, performance and video is used as an outlet, seeking to understand society‘«÷s obsession with technology, identity, legacy and its perpetual fame while addressing our innate longing for resolving existential questions of individuality, lack of faith and purposeful meaning.‘«ō

 

 

Chris Walker:?Š7_untitled

Edinburgh based artist, Chris Walker’s work is informed by contemporary news reporting and censorship; the every-day nature of the presentation of violence in the media; consumerism and materialistic imperatives and contemporary philosophical ideas relating to ethics.

 

Chloe Windsor:?ŠChloe Windsor - Neon

‘«£My current art practice consists mainly of sculpture and light installation, supported by drawing, collage and creative writing. Visually, I am inspired by the beauty of ruins, the solemn power of sculpture fragments, and the cryptic force of ancient relics. Through these interests I often explore the dialectic between antiquity/ancient civilizations and modern technologies within my work.‘«ō
