Living in the west of Scotland, Charles Jamieson is inspired by the Scottish countryside which he regularly paints as well as travelling frequently to warm sunny climes where he enjoys the colours of the land, sky and heat. He always travels with a sketchbook and creates paintings from his initial interpretation of the subject. Elsa Taylor lives in the Cotswolds where she gains much inspiration from the landscape although her journeys also take her further afield to Italy, Cornwall and Scotland. Her work is mostly semi abstract, developed from an initial figurative composition. She starts off with a drawing from her sketch book and then works it up in the studio. Vivienne Williams is a Welsh artist who has for the last 12 years concentrated on still life painting, her palette constantly evolving with her very distinctive style putting three elements together - colour, form and texture. As the layers of paint build, the surface texture is energetically worked, scratched, sanded and stained, often resulting in multiple layers being visible.

In Echo, viewers encounter a ghostly ‘reflection’ of themselves that moves and speaks as they do in real time, but is transposed upon a documentary background of an urban landscape. UK Premiere Antigone is a threechannel installation filmed in Los Angeles, in which three actresses preparing for a monologue from Sophocles’ Antigone tell three stories in unison. One speaks candidly from her own experience as the two on the screens beside her re-enact her words.
