Gareth Jenkins reduces concept in his paintings.  In the past, the work was developed from urban culture, man made structures, the walls and spaces that went into the make up of our architectonic environment and the aerial view of the roads around it. To the artist it is less about where the concept came from and more about  how it is in the painting.  For Gareth the line in its simplest form can be used to convey a sense of the object while asserting an abstract spatial structure.  From this perspective he has tried to control the paints natural need to flow and has created a series of paintings that discuss the task of creating sharp edged lines out of a liquid substance.

The minimal and abstract sculptures of Rory Tangney are concerned with their constituent materials, and are increasingly influenced by the constructed environment,­ architecture, the public space and the myriad objects which clutter it. His drawings rely on an accumulation of marks to create textures and depths of field in often representative works which have their basis in both found images and his photography. Audio works, composed of found sounds and field recordings, act as an extension of the sculptural work and give an emotional backdrop to any exhibition space or body of work. The various media are complementary, symbiotic, and reliant on each other for the overall context of his practice.
