Chris Wilson has progressed from the Foundation at Sunderland, through a degree to a career as an illustrator. As part of a recent residency, Wilson has developed a new publication, Nabwood.

Kate Liston’s publication No Gap Left for the Devil to Get In (along with two limited edition prints) draws parallels between the Shaker and Straight Edge cultures, both of whom are largely teetotal, vegan and celibate. Her ongoing series of artworks hijacks each culture’s founding narratives, using quotation, citation and plagiarism to show the constructedness and reconstructability of any such myth of origin; ultimately pointing to the shakiness of claims for original foundations.
