Sam Cartman

Sam Cartman lives and works in Dumfries & Galloway. Originally from Shropshire, he completed a Fine Art Degree in Carlisle before moving to Glasgow for eight years. His paintings are a response to being in the landscape: they are shaped by the experience of being in a certain place at a certain time and the memory of this. These experiences are the basis for his involvement with the paint, and from then on, his interaction with the paint takes over. The process allows him to show in painting, something of the place he is in or has been in. There is a poetic sparseness to Cartman's paintings of wide open spaces, in the skies or the sculpted buildings which look as if they have been there for all time. (Jan Patience, The Glasgow Herald)

Anna King

"I love to explore empty, feral places: wastelands, abandoned buildings and barren pieces of scrubland. I find myself in no-mans land, unclaimed territory that, for a while anyway, I can have as my own." Since her sell out degree show at Duncan of Jordonstone College of Art, Dundee in 2005, Anna King's unique perspective on decaying structures and landscapes has been seen at various prestigious English and Scottish galleries and in June 2007 she won the inaugural Jolomo Lloyds TSB Scotland Award for landscape painting. Although she lives and works in the Scottish Borders, Anna now travels increasingly throughout Europe, looking for the expanses of cracking concrete that inspire her so much. "Once a hive of human activity, these forgotten places have no purpose left but no rules either and nature is slowly and relentlessly taking the land back."
