Kazuhiro Yoshimura


Kazuhiro Yoshimura has been pupating and raising butterflies  since being a child so of course their symbolism and magic is transposed into his art which is a combination of paper cut and painting.

Sayaka Aburada


I chose some works by Sayaka Aburada today for their love of clouds. It is very hot here (for Scotland) and the sun is brutal in its ability to burn, so I'm seeking clouds to nurture. Sayaka Aburada's work is full of story and myth, uniquely strange and interesting.

Ruari Knott


Ruari Knott's degree show was a shape shifting exhibition of prints that were transformed by being the base for projections, altering the colour and composition before your eyes.

Karissa-May Miller

 'Disposable' am I disposable? Are you disposable? Is this disposable? What is the value, are we valued, what is disposable?  This is the question explored in the degree show of  Karissa-May Miller.

"Inspired by the everyday objects and things we take for granted and throw away, a connection and sympathy are born in Karissa. We as people are constantly moving, looking for something ‘better’ and ‘newer’, it’s an endless cycle that’s never quite satisfied and is something we are accustomed to. It has become second nature living in a consumerism-driven world to always want more. Its only when we stop and really look around at what we have that we realize how dependent we have become on things that in the bigger picture are not that important.

The recent loss of a close family member and the experience of cleaning out a house full of objects tied with memories is what kickstarted this exhibition for Karissa. Not being able to throw them away, these everyday household objects took on a new purpose, a new life. Challenging the boundaries of reality, letting us see objects as more than just material, more than just to fulfil our needs and then be cast aside. Karissa fuses parts of the body with these objects and flips the original intent in the primary function in rebellion. " Karissa-May Miller

Morwenna King


The glowing kaleidoscopic work of Morwenna King.

"My work revolves around the themes of light and colour, psychedelia and patterns in nature. Is it just coincidence that neurons, tree branches, rivers and lightning bolts share the same fractal form? This current work explores how patterns in nature share resonance with the mind. Amidst the apparent chaos and randomness of life, lies hidden order and continuity, evidenced in the recurrent forms found in nature. Logarithmic spirals, symmetry and fractal geometries repeat throughout the natural world without any clear causative mechanism." Morwenna King

Anne Brodie

Anne Brodies degree show was a wild flailing dance of gestural branches and organic sculptural forms. 

The Dance'

All things on earth interact in a continual cycle of encounters. One thing turns into another, which turns into the next, and the next turns back to another. Plants, animals, humans and technology - we rely upon, inhabit, and evolve alongside each other. We become with one another. This work strays from creating visible boundaries between entities and instead unfolds itself in amorphous forms. Material elements from the organic to the machine join to bring the world to life. Anne Brodie
