'Our work arises from different starting points but finds unity through the theme of 'transition' in this exhibition. Fascinated by the process of change, both in the natural world and in our work and also in pursuit of our theme, we both find that we collect and often use the 'found object' or accidental surface as a starting point or reference for our practice.

'Transitions' explores the theme of transformation through our chosen media of painting, print, drawing and photography. We also like to include evidence of the thought processes and individual experiences which underpin and inform the work. This takes the form of writing and other notes.'
