Jim Ricks: His work is combustive, rambunctious politically driven, found-objectbased multimedia work intended to disrupt the mainstream narrative.

Linda Monks: My work thus far has been an investigation of the self. I'm fascinated by Narcissistic Personality Disorder; the grandiose sense of self-importance.

Lucy Jones: The attack of the killer tomatoes! In Medieval times it was said that tomatoes were deadly poisonous.

Martin Rochford: Control My work is often influenced be the complexity of human interaction. Why do people put themselves in difficult situations?
