Chaired by Paul Harper

Each of the artists in this exhibition share a concern for the way in which ideas, images and objects evolve through a process of building and construction. A process of addition and subtraction, where the building up and paring away of layered material both reveals and conceals a rich language of contingent mark and embedded colour - a concern also for the way in which objects are held together through a utilitarian language of joints and fixings which reveal something of the history of their making.   

At the vital heart of the project is the experience of looking, seeing and making. The resulting visual juxtapositions brought about by this looking through, will lead to a conjoining of object, material and process, whilst revealing new and unexpected arrangements and compositions.
