James Capper has a wild imagination. Fused with his sophisticated grasp of engineering processes, this defines his distinctive artwork. Taking inspiration from Richard Serra, David Smith, Julio González, and Anthony Caro, Capper cuts and welds steel, fabricating all of his works himself. For his sculptures, which are the heart of his oeuvre, he uses the materials and problem-solving mentality of mechanical engineering. Alongside the sculptures, his work incorporates drawings, maquettes, and performances. Capper, born in Kent in 1987, lives and works in London and graduated in 2010 with an MA in..

Utterly contagious is Dewe Mathews’ fascination with unwritten histories, folklore, craft, and the healing powers of nature. The way that these are re-interpreted..

Everton is Not Vital's most recent series of drawings and was executed in February of 2014 in Rio de Janeiro. Vital has been travelling to Rio every year since 2011, yet in order to understand how he came to be there we must go back further. Vital was born in 1948 in Sent, a small village in the Engadin valley of Eastern Switzerland. At the age of 18 he moved to Paris, two years later to Rome, and in 1976 to New York. Since then he has been travelling incessantly to all corners of the world – living and working..
