Ustina Yakovleva creates paintings, graphic works, and objects. A large part of her practice is informed by graphic works consisting of identical individual strokes that create abstract compositions; an automatic writing of sorts that binds time into material form. In her works in other media, she follows similar principles: embroideries evolve into organic structures, fabric sculptures grow to resemble continents or icebergs, or possibly electronic circuits rooted in empty air.

James Beckett’s work in diverse media examines subjects of a historical nature, from the development (and subsequent demise) of European industry, to the more metaphysical aspects of dowsing and voodoo. His constructions favor an obscure and rambling logic, often within a strict formalism reflecting the mechanisms of display. A sometimes-dubious approach to his subject matter entertains the historic as suspended in a state of constant re-interpretation, a portrayal of a world where anomaly and change are fundamentals.
