About the ArtistsCharlotte Hayes: Excavating alternative histories with silk, air drying clay and polymorph, my work occupies territories between fictional narratives, scientific discoveries and skilful crafting. She creates sculptures which come to exist through the surveyal of museum-objects and characters from folk stories. The combination between recognisable and unidentifiable imagery creates a sense of familiarity, while still being ‘other’. ‘Child’s Pose’, water-soluble oil paint on canvas, 30 x 24 cm, 2020.Megan Squire: Megan Squire is a painter from Preston, Lancashire and a graduate of Painting and Printmaking at The Glasgow School of Art. She has stayed in Glasgow since her graduation and continues to make work towards an ongoing project; focusing on self-positioning, constellating and self-made tropes. ‘Body’, photograph.Charlotte Elizabeth Roberts: Roberts is a photographer and printmaker currently based in Glasgow, Scotland. Guided by an accumulation of voices from all ages, the artist ensures that the smaller aspects of life are not lost to a dream of a greater destiny.
