Through her work she explore relationships, spirituality and meditation. “The Process of painting is often more important than the idea – through the process I connect to something bigger than me and I try to bring it forward into the tangible world.”
With deep interest in story telling she explores how the visual side of communication can be challenged with various possibilities, unpredictability and chance.
Alena has developed her own universe with characters either bibliographical or imaginary. With them she ponders on matters of spirit, reality and imagination. She invites us as the audience to make our own interpretation and to consider a story line that has no end.

Born in 1998, in a small coastal town in the North East of England, Absalom began studying her Painting & Printmaking BA Hons in 2016 at The Glasgow School of Art, and graduated in the summer of 2020. She also had the opportunity to study Fine Art at the Bezalel Academy of Fine Art and Design, Jerusalem, Israel from September 2018 – February 2019.
Within the artwork, Absalom explores the themes of religion, dogma and the supernatural, most obviously through the contemporary interpretations of mythologies and iconography, and crucially in more subtle, but certainly more common forms, such as the symbolism and semantics of body gestures, shapes, colours, abstract words and sounds.
The artwork tends to take the form of either oil paintings, drawings, woodcuts or lithography, being a fairly traditional, figurative and painterly artist, however, the artist has recently been experimenting with other medias, such as video works, sound pieces, and sculpture.

Vincent is a Scottish illustrator and comic creator portraying themes of life and death through visual narratives. He graduated from DJCAD in 2018 with a degree in Illustration.
Taking inspiration from comics and animations, he first hand sketches his works then further develops them on Illustrator often using a vibrant colour palette.
Vincent’s style tends to be very graphic, with emphasis on violence and gore. His crude sense of humour is apparent when you meet him and comes through in almost all of his work.
