Imogen Taylor’s practice seeks to illuminate the modernist painting movement’s embedded relationship with LGBTQ+ histories. Her reclamations of modernist tropes emerge on parallelogram shaped canvases to create a sense of disorientation for the viewer through queer phenomenology. Taylor believes that parallel to the physical act of painting, queerness functions as a medium activated by her body.

Habby Osk’s interests lies in basic physics: balance, movement, gravity, time and force. These concepts play an important role across her art practice as she creates works which test the limits of balance and stability and explore gravity’s influence over time using sculpture, photography and installation as her primary medium. Osk places objects in precarious situations to probe how far they can go without tipping over, to capture the moment of stillness before the looming collapse and the transformation over time.
