We are asking ourselves, "When can I eat some cake?"

London-based painter Phil Hale's "current work focuses on figure as well, in depictions of slightly surreal scenes with strange characters performing various physical feats, usually in a confrontation of some sort.

The details in Angela Palmer's glass sculptures are taken from MRI and CT scans. They are engraved onto sheets of glass before being layered on top of one another to recreate the human form.

John Dolan spent 20 years living rough on the streets of London, amassed over 300 criminal convictions and was in London prisons for 12 years. He was stuck in what he refers to as a revolving door of prison and homelessness with no real hope in sight. This all started to change around five years ago when John was given George the Dog by a homeless couple who had exchanged George for the price of a strong can of lager.
