KERRY HAYS, US
Kerry's predominantly abstract, mixed-media work is heavily influenced by architecture. She explores the interplay between landscape, structure and human relationship. She pares down both the human form and elements of architecture into arrangements of strong, graphic shapes and earth tones. Her chosen mediums are acrylic, gouache, oil stick, watercolor and collage on stretched canvas, raw linen and cut canvas sheets designed for framing. Kerry works from her studio in the heart of Midtown Atlanta, at The Biltmore, an Atlanta landmark built in 1924.
CECILIA SJÖHOLM, UK
”I am a London based artist who works with a variety of techniques and materials. Drawings and paintings often feature beeswax. Metal, MDF and plywood are used for three dimensional work. With an educational background in fine art, interior and architecture, my art practice is focussed around the concepts of structure, scale and spatiality.
Central to the work is an ongoing exploration into the notion of perception of volume and flatness. Often starting with a systematic approach and using a structure as a basis, I am interested in how to disrupt or reconfigure this, using subjective and intuitive methods. By this process I am searching for the tension that can occur when a system is undermined, collides with itself or ceases to exist.”

AIMEE MOY, AUSTRALIA
Aimee Moy is an Australian artist living in the beautiful Byron Bay hinterland. Working as a freelance artist and designer Aimee is still in the early stages of her career. Her work and life is heavily inspired by nature, by composition, and by any kind of running water. Aimee is playful with her art, and will try any medium; her preferred medium however, is ink.
Aimee uses lines to manipulate reality, to create a simplistic dreamscape where the language is written in the abstract lines. The aim of the continuous line is to feel harmony and complete connectedness between the hand and mind, thus allowing a clean flow of thinking to pour out through the hand. It’s all about expression, balance, autonomy, and learning from mistakes.
