Marc Renshaw

'Bayerns', 'Tranquilayers', 'Delta' and 'Olby' may sound like international football teams but in fact belong to a fictional super league. When aged six, Renshaw developed an interest in producing league tables and statistics. These autonomous lists and complex sketches such as ‘Sporting City‘ reflect a lifelong archive of hopes, fears and dreams.

 
'As director of The Sporting League, I'm pleased to announce that Novia are the current champions after a comprehensive 4-0 victory on the last game of the 2006-07 season.'
 
The league is currently located in season 2007-08 as the artist works towards a goal of  'real time.'

Ellie Collins

I am currently concentrating on the reflective and evaluative aspects of my studio practice, art theory and educational delivery in order to explore the full spectrum of my artistic concerns from origin to outcome. By dedicating time to examine and contextualise in detail I expect to further underpin and enrich the work both on and off the canvas.

Kirsty Champ

Sculptor, teacher and environmentalist. This year I have worked as a creative practitioner in a local school, developing the sustainable outdoor learning space. I am particularly interested in the fusion of art and science and the subsequent learning/excitement potential. I also build lanterns and deliver cross-curricular workshops in and out of school.
