Carol Peace's minutia sculptures are about those quiet moments in our everyday lives that sometimes go amiss.
She said: "the flash of a look, a small gesture, the extra ordinariness and magnitude of the simplicity of the touch of a partner, the closeness of love, it's basic."
Her work touches the audience just as the audience have touched her to create it.
Patron of RWA and co-founder the Bristol Drawing School, Carol is an internationally renowned figurative sculptor who could not work without drawing.
The sculptures are made in clay, which like charcoal is quick to make marks with, once finished it is cast into bronze, those fluid marks of the making are then fixed forever.
Kristin Vestgard's work portrays the silent echoes of humanity.
Bridging the gap between the real and the ephemeral Vestgard's paintings offer a quiet stillness to our noisy lives.
Being human in these works is to feel emotion, to witness secrets and to hear whispered stories; telling of ancestors and people long gone, but ultimately of our own human nature.
Kristin Vestgard, of Norwegian origin, studied at Falmouth College of Art.
She sold all of her paintings in her degree show and has been successful in many group and solo shows since.
Exhibiting in London, Cornwall, and of course Norway, on numerous occasions as well in many art fairs nationally and internationally.
Caroline Burraway tries to conjure the truth behind our human nature, our weaknesses, our fears, our suffering.
Searching for what is real, surpassing the every day faces, and bringing forth the emotions and identities of her 'chosen beings' in these beautiful charcoal drawings.
A recent graduate of St Martins School of Art, London (2006) Burraway has showcased her work thoroughly in London and throughout Europe.
She has collaborated with many charities and hospitals to produce a body of work, which brings to light those whom our society neglects or chooses to ignore.
The huge charcoal drawings are derived from a series of film footage of patients in their last breath of life.
The technical drawings have been met with fascination and offer stark, but charged images.
Ellen Tovey's portraits depict people being human. She unveils a mystery behind every face, illuminating their presence and highlighting their character in a way you could not have been curious enough to see beforehand.
Tovey's paintings have been widely recognised and admired for their uncanny nature and natural simplicity.
Tovey, a graduate of Falmouth College of Art (2004) is an award-winning artist, shortlisted two years in a row for the BP Portrait Award.
Having exhibited widely throughout the UK and in art fairs she also is well known for her private commissions and works for album covers.
Jemma Grundon's landscape paintings concern the evocative nature of the world in which we live in.
The landscape becomes a metaphor for an ever-changing and unpredictable world, a world in which you may find yourself alone and at one with nature. Grundon invites the viewer to be enchanted and absorbed by her paintings as if they were caught up in the moment of a sublime dream.
A finalist in the Signature Art Prize and the Saatchi Showdown, Grundon has exhibited widely throughout the UK and Europe.
Recently having been artist in residence with Raleigh International Grundon's worked is recognized nationally and internationally.
