Using traditional and non-traditional drawing methods, Jayne Wilton’s work explores making visible the human breath. By capturing breath’s condensation, she records it as beautifully etched copper plates, as embossed paper reliefs, as graphite drawings, or via a light source on to sensitised paper. Finally, a series of suspended, blown glass forms describe the volume and echo the fragility and resilience of breath.

Joe Graham’s work derives from a process involving repetitive copying, a drawn Chinese whispers, in which each new image in the sequence is an imperfect copy of the previous. Normally beginning with a source image, on this occasion, Graham has chosen Lewis Carroll’s written description of the Jubjub Bird, from his nonsense poems Jabberwocky and The Hunting of the Snark, as the starting point for this series. Preliminary drawings are in pencil but subsequent processes include digital mark-making, overlaying and printing.
