Claire Rosen is an american photographer and video artist blending a fine art sensibility with commercial work to create whimsical imagery inspired by fairy tales, fables, and other children's stories. Her fashion, fine art and advertising work touch on the bizarre and unusual with the themes of vintage circus, burlesque, magic, curiosities and natural science interwoven throughout the images. Rosen is drawn both to beauty and darkness as it exists in life, and her images explore this duality.

There is a kind of desperation deep inside the artist Glen Moust's images. On the surface are "just" fine tuned collages of words, newspapers, objects, pictures, painting. They are the faded, dull side, with the subdued white pigmented colors, and closes in on itself with the slightly blurred word pieces and objects. They hide in the layers of the unknown image parts of old newspapers and papers on fragments of words and concepts. They are built up of thick layers of paint in which the objects sticking, painting almost have overcome the artefacts, blurring them, but which also had its scratches and bumps. Times have been tough on these works. They are images of wear of used contexts of the past. Just not something that can provoke an exhibition. But make no mistake, this is not for the faint hearted!

Jamie Johnson recently graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone in Dundee and is now an Edinburgh based artist. Through his use of drawing, collage and printmaking techniques, he creates intricate and atmospheric imagery of a surreal and layered nature. His recent projects explore idiosyncratic features extracted from his surroundings, everyday narratives within a particular landscape. The subjects of his work and the intricate, temporary shacks they inhabit exist within an ethereal utopian landscape. Initial ideas are realised through experimentation with different mediums, whilst drawing on memory, folklore and imagination to reinterpret and reassemble undisclosed historical fragments into a piece of work.

Asbjørn Skou / Armsrock is a Danish visual artist based in Copenhagen. He works primarily with drawing, interventions in public space and site- and time-specific installations. His work is constructed as visual investigations of the sociohistorical constructions, perimeters and possibilities of society.
