Chris Avis searches beneath the surface by unpacking the layers we keep secure. This is a fundamental aspect of her work, often nostalgic, sometimes beautifully melancholic. She makes tender unsettling images drawn from her reflections of human behaviour.

Chris paints with pixels to create images by using multiple layers of digital manipulation on her photographs, Her moving image work takes these visuals through slow mesmeric animation to unfold a narrative.

My work on environmental threats uses this layered approach to take the viewer into the desolate haunting beauty of destruction. Pairs of videos, designed to produce an immersive experience reinforce the impact.

‘Lament’ is part of a series of videos and digital prints that look beneath the surface of water to find what we have left behind. Plastic bottles entwined with household waste pollute our inland waterways corrupting the river’s habitat.

Chris Avis is an artist working with photography, video, installation, digital manipulation, and print. She completed a BA Degree in Fine Art (First Class honours) in 1994 and an MA Art in Architecture in 1996. She has exhibited in the UK and internationally. She has also taken part in numerous Contemporary Art Festivals.

Camille Schaeffer- Mixed Media - France

Camille Schaeffer (Cille Sch), a French multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in Berlin, Germany. She is currently working on a new series of artworks exploring the topic of patriarchy. She studies the notion of chaos as a result of a patriarchal order. Her work addresses gender identity, social roles and the way it affect us. She presents her research through installations, sculptures, video and performance.

I do mixed media on canvas using different types of materials, mostly up cycled. Found objects is a big part of my work as I like to be aware of my environment. I find interesting to play around with unwanted materials.
I use the color red as a signal in order to be heard and seen and to talk about a topic that reflects a form of violence.

Camille is a full-time artist, with a Performing Arts and Interaction Design Degree. She has participated in numerous group exhibitions locally and abroad. She usually takes part in residencies followed up by group exhibitions.

British Artist Kristina Page is pulled towards taking a closer and closer look, at the details of things and the patterns that are visible within them. She is particularly drawn towards water, the impact it has on things, and also as a carrier of history and as an energy that constantly is in motion.

I build my work in layers, and some of the work resembles worn out cloth, where I have sanded back and scraped away, to get to a texture that invites a closer look. I like the edges of things, the place where something is and then is not, the space between some thing and something else, where things meet and the tension between. My paintings are not of anything in particular, but in a way they are of many things that make up our living environment.
