Lucy Nettleton is an artist based in York who primarily works within sculpture and installation, but also uses some aspects of drawing and collage within her practice. During her Fine Art studies at York St John University, she has found herself working with industrial materials such as plaster and wire. Her collages have developed alongside her sculptural work, with red, white and black being present throughout. She experiments with materials in order to create textures which force viewers to want to interact with the piece. Making sculptural obstacles is a main theme within Nettleton’s practice; the artist compels the audience to engage with her work by using it to block pathways or corridors.
Sophie Martin’s practice considers 2D and 3D approaches to painting through the use of multiple delicate and easily manipulated materials.
John Cutting is driven to create awareness of the neglectful interferences that mankind has imposed on their natural surroundings.
