She is interested in collaborating with other artists in residence at the time, to share ideas,generate ideas and to build upon each other's work.

Nik Taylor (Ire)
6 November to 11 December 2018
The major focus of Nik Taylor's recent work is the Morley Hill project which channels his fascinations with the found object and chance encounters. The work’s origins are in science fiction themes and architectural folly; a cocktail of primitive technologies, space hardware and town planning.
Predominantly wooden constructions, it also encompasses drawing, painting, sound and collage. The sculptures are site specific and seldom last beyond the duration of their gallery exposure. Nik is driven by the desire to broaden my three-dimensional vocabulary, to realise a growing and varied range of wooden structures and re-explore the works further potential in two dimensions and audio visual media.
