Maria Chevska, From the Diary of a Fly [Parts 3] No (v)  oil on canvas
Jane and Louise Wilson Atomgrad 6 (Nature Abhors A Vacuum) 2012
Maria Chevska lives and works in London. Her practice incorporates painting, sculpture, and installation, and she often works in dialogue with literature, and writers. Foremost a painter whose works emerge through the interaction of idea, material, and process, she values the ability to embody the unseen unique to this medium yet often expanding it’s boundaries through a contextual practice. Significant projects since the early ‘90s include solo exhibitions of paintings, and installations that have taken place in Finland, Germany, France, Italy, Poland, England, and America. A monograph (Vera’s Room, The Art of Maria Chevska) was published by Black Dog in 2005. Recent solo exhibitions: Dubious to Reason, Vane Newcastle (2014); From the Diary of a Fly, Mummery&Schnelle, London (2013); Guest from the Future, Galerie8 London (2011); And Modernism, San Francisco (2010) amongst others.
She is currently a professor of fine art at tha Ruskin, University of Oxford.

Drawing his inspiration from the history of art and music as well as key philosophical and theological texts, Idris Khan investigates memory, creativity and the layering of experience.
Khan’s works rely on a continuous process of creating and erasing, or adding new layers whilst retaining traces of what has gone before. He first gained attention for work in which he used digital technology to overlay and combine series of visual or textual work: every Bernd and Hilla Becher photograph of a gable-sided house, every page of the Quran, every late Constable painting, every stave of Chopin’s Nocturnes.
Born in Birmingham in 1978, Khan lives and works in London. Since completing his Master’s Degree at the Royal College of Art in London in 2004 he has shown internationally, including recent solo shows at the Whitworth Gallery, University of Manchester (2012); Sadler’s Wells, London (2011); Gothenburg Konsthall, Sweden (2011); Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Toronto (2010); Kunsthaus Murz, Murzzuschlag, Austria (2010) and K20, Düsseldorf (2008). His work has also been included in group shows at the National Gallery of Art, Washington (2015).
