This exhibition brings together each of the artists recent work and puts into dialogue the emphatic materiality and physicality of production, that surrounds their works. With an interest in labour and gesture, as well as object investigation, materials are bitten, squashed, cut, pressed, squeezed, moulded, painted and printed, creating highly charged and affective outcomes.
