Featured today is David Lunt who feature din both our Monitor and Micro shows (2018-2019)

David Lunt is a Manchester born artist who studied BA Fine Art at Loughborough University 1997-2000 and MA Art and Design Studio Practice 2004-05.

He has exhibited work in a number of recognised institutions notably FACT (Liverpool) Cornerhouse (now HOME Manchester), The Portico Library (Manchester) and The Harris Museum (Preston) and in 2017 was shortlisted for the ‘Greater Manchester Art Prize’. More recently he has exhibited with London based astronomy collective ‘Lumen’ and ‘Artgene’ in Cumbria.

“My practice explores the fine line that separates science fact from science fiction. Incorporating 2d traditional pieces with digital sculpture and animation. My work has focused on a number of subjects including cartography, astronomy, geology, exploration and the future of human survival. Recent pieces have been based primarily on the discovery/study of planets, moons, and the unfamiliar landscapes within our own solar system and beyond and the potential they may hold. In 2019 we celebrated 50 years of the moon landings I am equally as interested to consider where exactly we may be as a species in the next 50”.

Todays featured artist is Dasha Ilina

Cast your mind back for todays feature- during our Monitor show we had the pleasure of showing this video work 'Self Defence' by Dasha.

Dasha Ilina is a Russian techno-critical artist based in Paris, France. Through the employment of low-tech and DIY approaches, her work questions the desire to incorporate modern technology into our daily lives by highlighting the implications of actually doing so. Her practice engages the public in order to facilitate a space for the development of critical thought regarding social imperatives for care of oneself and others, privacy in the digital age, and the reflexive contemporary urge to turn to technology for answers.

Since we last saw Dasha her practice has blossomed with some highly engaging critical works that are well worth checking out including ‘Do humans dream of online connection?’ which questions our everyday intimate relationships to objects in a time of heightened dissociation between physical proximity and emotional intimacy and most recently "Dasha's kitchen: My Magical Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe" which highlights the importance of a critical discussion when it comes to artificial intelligence.

Featured today is Chester Tennesson who we had the pleasure of showcasing during our show Monitor way back in 2018.

Chester’s work explores the absurdity within the norms of everyday institutional design and authority, examining the idiosyncratic nature of commonplace objects and language. His position as a transgender man informs his practice, looking to the absurdity within the design of the cis-heteronormative world. He takes prompts from institutional statements, signage, social media, advertising and product design to create interventional text-based works, sculptures and performances. His works seek to act as prompts for performance, playing with transitional moments of movement - calling for the viewer to engage with points of tension/mischief. The codes and rules of the digital world are often played back into the physical, with references to the banal performativity of social media advertising.

Most recently Chester he has been awarded 'PIVOT, Bluecoat & Castlefield Gallery' and you might have seen his work at 'wink wink' at the Whitaker Art Gallery and (Un)Defining Q***r, The Whitworth, Manchester in 2023.

Todays Featured artist is Bob Bicknell-Knight who is a multidisciplinary artist and curator working with digital media producing films, paintings, sculptures and installations. We had the pleasure of showcasing his work during our show Monitor.

"My practice comes from a place of cynicism, exploring power structures that proliferate online and in new forms of technology, with a particular interest in the automation of work and hyper-consumerism. I’m influenced and inspired by our pre-apocalyptic present, climate collapse, virtual worlds and 24/7 hyper-capitalism.

I am currently looking to both continue and expand upon these projects, digging deeper into the philosophy and minutiae behind the production of games whilst broadening my reflections and knowledge regarding societal collapse in relation to the climate crisis."

Since we last saw him he's had 6 solo show across the globe in Czech Republic, Paris, Lithuania,Kassel and Berlin and more group shows than I could possibly list in one facebook post! He has just exhibited at Logging Off, duo exhibition w/ Rosa-Maria Nuutinen. At The Cut Arts Centre, 8 New Cut, Halesworth, IP19 8BY, United Kingdom, 27th February - 6th April 2024 and has an upcoming solo show: Asset Flip, solo exhibition. At SEAGER, London, UK, 30th May - 1st July 2024.

Todays featured artist is Aileen Creegan.

Cast your mind back to our show Monitor and you might remember these lovely works by Aileen Creegan. Creegan is interested in exploring ways to make the absent visible through a variety of different media.

"I enjoy collecting and organising information to help me better understand the world, on subjects that, at first glance, might not always appear obviously useful. Information is my comfort blanket; Wikipedia trawls and Google Earth explorations a way to self-soothe, with journeys within digital environments as valuable as real-world field trips.

From this secure standing, I seek to exploit flaws and deconstruct accepted forms, perspectives, and narratives, often exploring the tension that comes along with breaking what is designed to be immersive and real. I wish to draw attention to what is not meant to be seen, elevating the out-of-place, or objects and places that can elicit complex and messy feelings, revelling in aesthetic enjoyment whilst being keenly aware of the destructive nature and processes involved."

Since we last saw them, they have has their own solo show at Aug 2019 – Launch On Warning, Garage Gallery 62, Reading and exhibited at numerous group shows including: INC Print Exchange 2023, Hot Bed Press Studios, Manchester, Oxfordshire Artweeks: Archie Education Bursary, OVADA, Oxford, Process, OHOS, Reading, Seven Counties Open, OVADA, Oxford and Chromantics, Cornerhouse Arts Centre, Didcot.

Todays featured artist is Peter Davis

Peter's outstanding painting style might be instantly recognisable for those in the North West who might have seen his work in numerous Open shows and galleries over the years. We had the pleasure of showing his work during our exhibition 'Monitor' and his work reflects today’s societal narratives, including technology addiction, mental health, race and gender.

Since we last saw Peter he's won numerous awards including; 2020 Three Counties Open - Burslem Prize, 2020 The Castlegate Prize - Finalist, 2019 SAG 99th Annual Exhibition - First Prize, 2019 A&I Magazine 'Artists of the Year' - Finalist and he has not one, not two but 7 shows this year:

Todays featured artist is Carole Evans.

Carole Evans is a socially engaged artist who tells stories. These may be real life stories, imaginary stories, stories that have already happened, or stories that are happening now. The main characters are always ordinary, everyday people – but the stories are told in extraordinary ways through the use of collage, textiles, and photography.

Her exhibition 'The Bravest Little Street in England' was a tribute Chapel Street in Altrincham that was awarded a Roll of Honour by King George V in 1919. Out of the 161 men who enlisted from the street, 29 failed to return home, and a further 20 died of their wounds.

The show was later shown at Crypt Gallery in London.

Since we last saw Carole she has had numerous success; the most recent being her latest project 'Secrets.Refrained (2023)'.

Secrets.Refrained is a work made in collaboration with Women First, a group of women who have experienced homelessness or domestic abuse, supported by NDADA and Encompass. This work was made in response to the seascapes of the permanent collection at the Burton Art Gallery & Museum.

Todays feature artist is Ro Robertson

Ro Robertson works within sound, performance, video and sculpture. Their work continuously pushes the boundaries in terms of what these various mediums can achieve in traditional and obscure settings. Ro was one of the two artists we selected for the Platform bursary scheme we ran in 2018 and this show was one of our top 5 most ambitious installs.

As you can see from the first image, Ro suspended an entire brick ceiling into our second space that had amplified noise and would lightly vibrate and move in response to the building.

Ro has since gone onto have multiple successful shows;
-Modern Thresholds: Ro Robertson, a site-responsive display of drawing and sculpture at Tate St Ives until December 2025.
-Robertson’s public sculpture Drench, was exhibited in Regent’s Park, London as part of Frieze Sculpture 2022 and is now on view at the Sainsbury Centre’s Sculpture Park.
-Robertson’s first public sculpture Stone (Butch) was installed at London’s iconic Gherkin skyscraper 2021-22, and is now installed at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Wakefield, where is it part of the permanent collection.
-Past solo presentations include Torsos, Maximillian William, London and Subterrane, Maximillian William, London.
-Recent group exhibitions include WINK WINK at Whitaker Museum & Art Gallery, Rossendale; We Are Floating In Space, Newlyn Art Gallery and The Exchange, Newlyn / Penzance; TRICKSTER FIGURES: sculpture and the body curated by Jes Fernie at MK Gallery and more.
-In early 2024, Wakefield Council will unveil a newly commissioned monumental, site-specific work by Ro Robertson following four public sculpture commissions in Wakefield city by leading British artists.

Featured today is William Braithwaite

"My practice is a constant exploration of repetition, process and formation. Often these works explore the boundary between sculpture and architecture. Making a dialog between the two practices.

I am interested in objects that engage the viewer in a bodily way, meaning I am interested objects that are of a large scale and or complex in there design. Influence has come from the architectural styles of Modernism and Brutalism. These buildings produce powerful, dominant, minimalist forms that can be visually interesting, especially from an artist point of view, with there repetitive mundane shapes becoming complex through repetition building up a complex shape.

Todays featured artist is Shahram Farrokhnejad

Shahram Farrokhnejad’s paintings are improvised, using chance, accident and risk-taking to produce works that start from nowhere and end with the unknown. Based on a mark-making practice, Sharham uses a range of unusual painting tools (plungers, squeegees and children’s toys) to develop a series of preliminary marks into strange and fantastical paintings and sculpture. Whilst Sharham’s video work address more philosophical matters, approaching geopolitical and environmental issues through a direct and sometimes-humorous lens.

Shahram was one of our award winners at the AIR Open 2018 and we loved having them back for the group winners show. Since we last saw them they've completed an MA in Fine Art at MMU

Todays featured artist is Sara Allen

"My ceramic sculptures are physical representations of our psychological incongruities: the doubts, questions, and shifts in perspectives through which we view the memories of our lives. The act of reflecting upon our experiences can often become an investigation, a system of discovering and constructing underlying emotional structures. I find that a memory’s ability to mutate—to restructure reality or to erode the truth—is a potent source of inquiry for my work."

Featured today is Rose Parker

Another one of my personal favourites from the AIR Open 2018, Rose Parker's work is just beautifully visceral.

"My work explores the fluid relationship between language and the collectively understood meanings that go with it. Although language is seen as stable and fixed, it changes and morphs to fit our needs and experiences. I look at how changing the physical form of language can reveal our changing collective use of it. In each painting I focus on a word that has undergone this change and create a new typography. As a starting point I use silicon to draw out the text and create a maquette to work from. I am interested in exploring the illusion of fluid motion to bring to life the meaning behind language, which I create by manipulating the colour and light in my typography."

The eagle eyed of you might have spotted that Rose has exhibited in two of our AIR Opens now, 2018 and 2019

Todays featured artist is Paula Fenwick-Lucas

"Central to my practice is the use of personal, private and inherited objects. I cherish the detritus of every-day life with its moments of pathos or beauty.

I am curious about how to repair, celebrate and articulate memories manifested through drawing, assemblage and display.

These are the small incidents of a life, marked in the present."

Todays featured artist is Paul Digby

This is from a series of drawings of places that the artist sees as he travels around the North of England. In this series he reference's George Seurat's style of drawing using cross hatching, circular movements and layers of fixative between layers of graphite. The drawings have psycho-geographic and socio political connotations specific to urban living and environments.

Paul has an upcoming exhibition and book launch with fellow artist Ian McMillian from 20th April-3rd May at Northlight Arts Centre in Leeds.

Todays featured artist is Michael Winstone

His art examines the human body within the context of the family structure, it's relationship with nature and in particular the anatomy of trees and their architecture. It identifies the space they coexist in and the questions that are raised from that union.

Featured today is Mandy Parkinson who we met as a volunteer from Trafford College in 2018 and had the pleasuring of showing her photography work in the AIR Open 2018.

If you went to the MMU degree show in 2022 you'll of seen Mandy's work (second pic) and how it has matured in style.

"As a painter and sculptor, my work often addresses issues regarding animal rights, environmentalism and politics, unafraid to confront the difficult dilemmas of the world, I strive to create a dialogue with the audience to bring important issues to the table and encourage discussion. My work also touches on the dilemmas of being dual ethnicity, where I struggle to come to terms with my ancestry that is deeply rooted in colonialism, I explore how imperialism affects mine and many people's identities to this day who are from colonised lands."

She has gone onto become a fantastic tattoo artist and you can see her work at
