Stephanie Buttle

Ceramics

Venue 31

Artist, Maker Stephanie Buttle uses diverse approaches within her practice influenced by her former professional experiences within dance, performance and lens-based mediums. The material qualities of clay and the contrasting processes available within ceramics, act to express the artist’s fascination with the politics of intimacy and the discovering and presenting of an experience that often includes a performative element and a personal physical component.

Stephanie studied at Central Saint Martins from 2012 -2015 gaining a first class honours degree in Ceramics.  She was nominated for Central Saint Martins Graduation Nova Award.  In 2016/17 she was guest speaker at Ceramic Art London, Featured articles in publication including Hole&Corner magazine and exhibited at the Lethaby Gallery London, Pangolin Gallery London, Messums Wiltshire, Port Elliot Festival in 2015 -17 with Hole & Corner Magazine and performed at the London Design Festival.

Prior to attending Central Saint Martins she danced with the National Ballet of Portugal and appeared in Pop videos, for the Pet Shop Boys and Mike and the Mechanics.  Acting credits include supporting actress to Juliette Binoche  and William Hurt in the feature film ‘Couch in New York’ Director Chantal Akerman. She has directed short films, including, Throwing my weight around, 2015, Wet Man, 2004 and Fourth Wall, 2004 and a number of commercials and Pop videos.  As well as her ceramics and performance work, Stephanie currently tutors in Ceramics at Morley College, London and for the outreach dept at Central Saint Martins.

Sarah Hitchens

Ceramics

Venue 31

Sarah makes work that has a primitive quality about it: slab-built from coarse, black clay, forms are torn, textured, rough-edged and purposely imperfect. Tearing sheets of raw clay into shape and working spontaneously and intuitively imbues Sarah’s work with an inherent unpredictability. Rips and lacerations are actively encouraged and become an essential part of the making process, revealing the life of the form and the journey it has been on in its creation. Her stripped back structures celebrate a wholeness and beauty that embrace imperfection and uncertainty.

She is intrigued by what lies unseen in the chasm between who we present to the world and who we actually are with all our conflicting feelings, beliefs and dreams. “Enchanted by the ideal of perfection we lose touch with the depth, texture and grittiness of living authentically”.

The raw surfaces of her work reflect this grittiness and texture whilst the tension between the inner and outer self is present in the hidden potential of the inner void set against the reality of the visible surface.

Placed together in groups, standing together or set apart, subtle relationships arise between the forms: echoes of primal structures from ancient times, encouraging the viewer to look, then look again.

Boo Mallinson

Painting

Venue 31

Boo Mallinson’s paintings act as a visual diary and a way of recording her everyday walks and journeys through the landscape. Memories of a repeated walk along a known pathway, the dramatic changes of light and colour from one moment to the next, the distant horizon, the way that sights, sounds and smells come together to form a very strong sense of place – these joyous encounters with the natural world form the starting point of her paintings. Once back in the studio, the translating of ideas and memories into paint enables Boo to explore colour and abstraction and to move intuitively between the real and the imaginary.

Boo studied Fine Art at the Byam Shaw School or Art and City of Guilds school of Art in London and moved to Dorset 13 years ago. Her work is exhibited with the following galleries:-

Highgate Contemporary, London
(www.highgateart.com)

Bath Contemporary

Jacy Wall

Textiles

BOS Venue 31

Jacy Wall – Her is about textiles in the broadest sense, exploring many qualities of woven, printed and stitched textiles, enjoying a seam and simple stripes as much as rich embroidery as a source of imagery to play with.
