  • David Raymond Conroy

    Summer Residency 2017

    David Raymond Conroy’s compositional works investigate the performance and construction of subjectivity within shared social space. Utilising commercial display strategies, curatorial methods and theatrical staging techniques, Conroy assembles products, texts and images that position the rhetoric of fidelity in relation to desire. His live arrangements for multiple readers phase authorial presence in a counterpoint of voices that conjoin singular audibility and fractured noise. Central to the practice is this circular overlapping of production and consumption, how authenticity meets artifice in the formation of the self. David Raymond Conroy (b.1978 Reading) lives and works in Brussels and London.

  • Rhona Jack

    Graduate Residency 2017

    Rhona Jack is a multi-disciplinary artist, primarily working in print and sculpture, who graduated in 2017 with a BAHons in Fine Art from DJCAD. Her artistic practice generally evolves through repeated processes. In each piece of work she creates, a great deal of time and energy is exerted into the physical making of the work. Her art is slow and systematic, much of the meaning behind the work becoming clear through the process of making itself. In this way, her practice reflects on the process of labour and working with raw materials, exploring its role in the human psyche and its impact on our built environment. Post-University she has remained in Dundee where her artistic practice continues to grow and be influenced by the city.

  • Richard Taylor

    Graduate Residency 2017

    Richard Taylor (b. Sheffield UK, 1985) grew up in Derbyshire and moved to Scotland in 2009 after studying with ravers at Leeds University. His work is driven by a writing practice in which autobiographical, historical and geographical sources are points of departure. Recorded voice, slide photography, video, sound, object-making and performance are then used to create larger narratives. Corporeal and aural intimacies and proximities are considered, as are dialogues around the connections identity can or cannot have with landscape, community, people or things. As a co-editor of the artist-run pamphlet series Gnommero, Richard is also interested in how writing takes form within printed material. He completed an MFA at Glasgow School of Art in 2017, lives in Glasgow, and hopes there will soon be a dog in the family called Ambrosia.

  • Sofia Sefraoui

    Graduate Residency 2017

    Sofia Sefraoui graduated from the Master of Fine Arts at the Glasgow School of Art in 2016. Being from a multicultural family, she questions the concepts of exchange, confrontation, travel, borders. She assembles materials that come from different realms in order to create tension within her works. She often works with fabrics as she sees the structure of textile as the construction of a network, with a strong basis (bare-threads) and important connections and associations (knots). For her, this material is a metaphor to approach the notions of the social fabric, construction, representation and culture.

  • Svetlana Panova

    Svetlana Panova is a recent fine art graduate from Gray’s School of Art, Aberdeen with a broad inter-disciplinary practice within the fields of sculpture, moving image, photography and print.

  • Madiha Aijaz

    ROSL Visual Art Scholars 2017

    Madiha Aijaz works with photographs, film, and fiction. Her practice is concerned with how people experience pleasure, privacy and entertainment in changing, often fractured urban spaces. She has been photographing railroads, traveling fairs, devotional towns and public libraries to read into found situations and conversations which embrace failure and yet continue to offer resistance. She is also interested in what the camera often accords – the simultaneous occurrence of veracity and theatricality in its reproduction of events and scenes.

    Aijaz has shown in Pakistan and internationally and is currently developing a documentary feature on traveling fairs and performers in Pakistan with co-director Maheen Zia. The film has received support from Locarno’s Open Doors Programme and the IDFA Bertha Fund. Her book on the Hindu temples in Pakistan was published in 2014 (Call to Conscience, Abbasi, Aijaz, Niyogi Books, New Delhi).

    Aijaz is an Assistant Professor at the Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture, Karachi and holds an MFA in Photography from Parsons as the recipient of the Fulbright Scholarship.

  • Stephanie Hier

    ROSL Visual Art Scholars 2017

    Stephanie Hier was born in Toronto, Canada, in 1992 and is currently based between Toronto and New York. Recent exhibitions include: Part and Parcel, Downs and Ross, New York, 2017; Be true to your teeth and they won’t be false to you, NEOCHROME, Turin, 2017; Bone Dry, ThreeFourThreeFour, New York, 2016, Here’s the catch, Johannes Vogt Gallery, New York, 2015; Pot Shop, Ed Varie, New York, 2014

    Hier’s work recognises that nothing sits in isolation, ideas and objects are emboldened by their neighbour and relationships constructed by context and surrounding, an idea emphasised by the internet, where all exists and is readily available in a single, level entity. It is within this flatness of possibility that Hier’s practice emerges: paintings that fold in imagery and symbols from a multitude of sources. Her use of contemporary cultural symbolism, such as temporary tattoos or cartoon hands, evokes the idea of the everyday and mass produced. The use of this content alongside skilled, traditional brushwork, opens up the relationships between images, art and painting.

    Hier’s work speaks directly to the labour of artists and specifically the canon of painting, by depicting and displaying pertinent materials and tools used in the making of art, while also pointing a finger (both literally and figuratively) to all 21st Century image consumers. Her choice in materials, imagery, tools and references epitomises the visual world as it currently exists and the painter’s relationship to it.
