Carianne Annan is an Arts student studying Fine art at Central Saint Martins School of art. Carianne works with mixed media, but her most recent works have involved acrylic sheets and a variation of different plastics. Colour is central for Annan as she aims to build a lost connection between childhood and adulthood and the everyday coloured objects that are neglected from an adult’s perception of the world but only seen by a child, the bits of chipped pieces of plastics stuck underneath shoes, underneath drains. Annan aims to blur the view of loss and neglect as seen by a child to those of a much older age group.
Anna Dakin studies painting at Wimbledon college of art. She takes inspiration from the universe and consciousness to make abstract paintings and analogue films. Anna is interested in chaos and the order of the universe. She likes to work by bringing out colour from abstract forms. Anna is part of London based painting collective: The Neo-Pseudo Surrealists, who work collaboratively and base work loosely on the grotesque, the saccharine sweet and the juxtaposition between the two, along with the sickly reality of human perception.
