Anya Beaumont is an artist, mapper and lecturer. Contrasts in the physical environment and its influence have been a significant factor in her practice.  Within her observations of place, concerns of contemporary life infiltrate the pieces and sit alongside musings on Britain's architectural story. This is most often manifested in the obsessive, labour intensive cutting and arranging of a great many pieces but also the use of artificial colours and media applied to organic forms. Anya received MA in Fine Art Theory and Practice from Middlesex University in 2004 and has since been engaged in a number of projects including residencies, commissions and making large scale maps. Anya relocated to Corsham from London in 2015.

Clare Winnan uses sculpture and installation, to create seductive yet disturbing works that draw on the tensions between often delicate objects and their more sinister underlying messages. By using unlikely media to realise her ideas, Clare creates a world of contradiction where innocence is paired with violence; where death comes to life; and where the vibrancy of life is caged or bottled for antiquity. A preoccupation with childhood and family memories often finds its way into the work, filtered through the passage of time and the experiences of life. These themes are explored through found objects which come ready-made with nostalgia and meaning. Clare obsessively collects and hoards these objects, always on the look out for insects, doll parts, skulls and doll furniture at every opportunity. 

Clare and Anya will give a lunchtime talk about their work on Wednesday 25th October at 12.30pm.
