The title represents the duration of the exhibition in hours.

Nathalie Frost
I use contrasting materials to form my work.
I am fascinated by the fragile, transient nature of life. I study the lines and marks laid bare by well worn textiles, within the framework of the natural world, our own skins, and our own stories.

Mark Shepherd
In the winter I create in the studio, in the warmer months I often create on the beach, under low hanging sun.
This work was created over the last year, inspired by the everyday.
I am documenting my imagination on canvas, paper, and handmade paper.

Tim Oakenfull
‘Some things just are.’ Will Oldham (when asked why his songs are so slow)
A mixture of realism and abstraction, I work mainly in oil on canvas. My work isn’t consciously about anything. Ultimately, I’m creating paintings I would want on my own wall.

Richard Reinhardt
Richard Reinhardt is a UK based composer with a focus on ambient, experimental, and cinematic music.
Ambient guitars are mixed with minimal synths, electronic elements, meditative textures, and field recordings to create experimental soundscapes. “Atmosphere is important to me. I prefer to write when it’s dark or raining outside”.
