Natasha Ahmed is an artist who lives and works in Sunderland. She takes an abstract approach, with texture and colour being the main factors in her work. Touch and sight are what she admires: seeing the mixtures of colours blend and feeling the different textures formed by her repetitive process. Allowing each outcome to be different is a significant part of her practice. What she enjoys most is experimenting with different materials such as ink, pastels and paint – allowing them to connect on the canvas in their own directions, following their paths and letting the materials be in control.
Jay Villacci’s Alienation series of photographs conveys a sense of abandonment and entrapment prevalent within British identity.
