Jeannie Clark

The theme "Waterscapes" or "Sensory worlds" is the starting point for Jeannie's work. She is an artist/ printmaker who's currently focusing on investigating the experience of swimming and working with/in water. She makes sketchbook drawings to record her intuitive response to observed information. These drawings are then translated and transformed through the processes of printmaking and painting. Water is a key material in the process of printmaking and within the activity of swimming, whether alone or in collaboration with others.

Her ongoing concerns are the influence of touch in visual mark - making, line, movement, shape, space, sound, opaque and transparent colour and surface. She is interested in investigating how scale can change the quality of the mark in drawing, and colour through layering. As her work develops she wants to make larger scale drawings, possibly combined with organic material with the potential to conduct electricity, enabling her to incorporate sound.

Elizabeth Tomos

Elizabeth Tomos is a multidisciplinary artist working across the mediums of performance, installation and printmaking. Her practice explores the body as a means of image production and 'proprioception' (our sense of being in a body and orientated in space).

Somatic methodology and the philosophies and practices of embodiment give credence to the body's capacity to both learn and to create knowledge outside of and in critique of systems of power: the body is both tool, agent and object. Therefore, most of the work aims to make sense of, document or record perceptual and embodied experiences. For example, her recent hand-built screen-printing machine, is designed to record minute shifts in bodily pressure. The large scale of the work deliberately exacerbates, makes strenuous and draws attention to the movements of the printmaker.

This performance of a printmaking process is one of endurance, where over the day(s) the body becomes increasingly unable to perform the task of printing. The resulting print becomes a record of the tension in the body, the movements undertaken and the shifting pressure.
