Within the curated exhibition, directly alongside the work of accomplished practitioners, the Festival Curator, Geoff Diego Litherland has hand-picked graduates, Alexandra Rose (Nottingham Trent University), who appropriates images of nature, removing it from source to re-packages for humans as a convenient luxury, Helen Sayer (Leeds University, School of Art and Design) whose paintings are manipulated physically eg. by crushing, to challenge the limits of the medium itself, Hayley Blackwell (Derby University), who develops stark sculptural forms from blackened organic, formerly colourfully edible, materials and Aylwin Greenwood-Lambert (Sheffield Hallam University) for whom the phrase, “it aint what you do but the way that you do it” is a guiding principle.
