  • Alex Sarkisian

    Graduate Residency 2014

    Working with sculpture, film and drawing, Alex Sarkisian is interested in the functionality of objects, human gestures and the confinements of specific spaces that direct animate and inanimate movement. His practice is motivated by looking at the position of a maker (and film maker) as an intermediary between the observer and the observed, and a play between the demonstrative, the experiential, and the gestural in relation to every day occurrences that are both banal and extraordinary.

  • Alison Scott

    Graduate Residency 2014

    Alison Scott’s practice incorporates drawing, sculpture and text pieces, and mainly manifests photographically. The work suggests the uncertainty of matter, language and image. By re-appropriating found and domestic objects, Scott aims to address our connection to raw materials such as coal, oil, and lead. She wants to research more thoroughly how this connection, or indeed disconnection, has been changing with de-industrialisation in Scotland and the UK, and to examine the relationship between the industrial and the domestic. The juxtaposition of the exotic and the local is central in the work’s imagery. For example, masking a base material with a precious one; questioning the authority and truth of the material or image that is being presented.

  • Amy Pickles

    Graduate Residency 2014

    Amy Pickles works with physical language of performance, investigating social roles and gestural codes.

  • Ewan Murray

    Graduate Residency 2014

    Ewan Murray’s practice is rooted in the language of painting. His paintings explore a variety of subjects, styles and references, yet each work remains tied to the axis of the investigation; the idea that a painting is not a fixed surface but rather a versatile space for thought. Murray’s paintings invoke domestic objects, silhouettes, landscapes and faces. Different textures and techniques – speckled flecks of paint, impressionistic daubs, scraped marks, thin fluid lines, congealed accumulations and controlled geometric forms – are incorporated and juxtaposed. Murray is a graduate of Glasgow School of Art’s Painting and Printmaking degree programme, and a recipient of the 2013 Cheong Kam Hee Art Prize.

  • Fran Gordon

    Graduate Residency 2014

    Fran Gordon’s work revolves around the themes of image reproduction, re-presentation and fabrication of knowledge. Relating this notion to found imagery both from books and online, Gordon explores how images are used for documentation and can be considered to be reliable sources of information; sometimes without any questioning of their realness. Gordon is interested in the digital consumption and reproduction of images and how the scope in which manipulating found imagery can change contexts and meaning; multiplying and degrading their aura.

  • Jessica Ramm

    Graduate Residency 2014

  • Kirsty McQueen

    Graduate Residency 2014

    Jeweller and silversmith Kirsty McQueen’s work is inspired by the Scottish landscape and its history and folklore. She gathers sources from archaeological and historical texts and collects and gathers natural found objects such as bones, teeth, wood and stones, which inspire her designs. Her work aims to be sensitive to both an ancient and contemporary aesthetic whilst also playfully ambiguous; inspiring confidence in the wearer that comes from an ancient instinct and evokes a sense of fantasy, magic and otherworldliness.

  • Robyn Benson

    Graduate Residency 2014

    Benson’s work involves placing simple objects together to create states of equilibrium; she reduces her medium down to very basic materials such as bricks, wood, plastic, and string.

  • Libby Hague

    Interdisciplinary Residency August 2014

    Canada, Puppetry, Sculpture

    Toronto-based artist Libby Hague’s work examines humane and complex social relationships in a precarious and interconnected world. Her concerns, curiosity and love of invention have led her to a hybrid practice of printmaking, installation and animation. She has a BFA (Honours) from SWWU, now Concordia University. Her work looks at how, without an external code, we determine and maintain humane social relationships. Hague explores poetic and material equivalents for moral and existential challenges. Her hybrid practice often involves the use of rudimentary puppets. Part creature and part object, the puppets stand and sit in a lower-case ideal of continued effort. By moving them, they are given a half-life that engenders in us a strange empathy and impatience. Hague is a member of the Gifts + Occupations Collective.

  • Valerie Norris

    DD Artists Residency 2014

    In Valerie Norris’ work layers of meaning are created through the interplay between painting, objects, form, colour, image and text and in the way that this accumulates to form a visual language. Norris’ practice is informed by an assemblage of references, found images and objects collected from magazines, charity shops, film, fashion, music, nature, literature and poetry. Non-linear narratives and chance associations are proposed through a process of arrangement and play.

  • Khalid Alsayed

    Interdisciplinary Residency April – May 2014
    UK, Moving Image, Theory, Writing
    Khalid Alsayed has a background in interdisciplinary practice; making artwork that is informed by philosophical/theoretical study and producing theoretical and creative writing that is influenced by artistic production. His subjects tend to revolve around aspects of current popular media, their influence on society and behaviour. The work that he produces tends to become what he refers to as ‘machines for fictions’ from which he creates layers of fragmented narrative readings. He works in moving image, photography, sculpture and installation. Underlying all of his work is his commitment to practical education; learning through making.
