About the Artists

Gabriella Boyd (b. 1988, Glasgow, UK), makes abstract and figurative paintings often concerned with celebrating attempts at communications in human relations- often focusing on futile or misconstrued affectionate acts

Rachel Pimm (b. 1984, Harare, Zimbabwe) examines the materiality of our environment through a range of media including film, photography and sculpture.

Alexis Teplin (b. 1976, California, USA) is a painter whose practice expands beyond the limits of the frame, to include writing, performance, costume and at times moving image.

Andrea Luka Zimmerman (b. 1969) is an artist and cultural activist who works in film, installation and photography. Often working collaboratively, Zimmerman explores the intersection of public and private memory, particularly in relation to structural and political violence.
