Hull Artist Bob Swan
"My work is an exploration of the sculptural and textural possibilities of discarded worthless materials, and aims at elevating them to a higher level.
This often involves the painstaking collection of many waste pieces of the same element as they become available over time, or long hours pressing and forming multiple components into parts of a construction system I created myself.
"The final constructions are influenced by nature on a microscopic level, geometry, nanotechnology and mathematics, and their arrangement/positioning is often a comment on boundaries within the public space, how we interact with art and it's value to the consumer."
You can often see Bob invigilating in the #HIPgallery #princesquay for @CreativeandCulturalco

#SueCaulfield is a multi talented artist. Currently leading workshops in the Creative & Cultural arts spaces in @princesquayhull Here's Sue's story so far: Sue was born in Portsmouth but settled in Hull at the age of 12. Sue says "I love #Hull ...
as a child I was forever drawing but when I left school and got a job I left drawing behind.
After working in the fish industry for many years I was made redundant age 37. I spent a couple of years doing various office jobs. While doing this, I taught myself some basic digital photography. I have practiced ever since. Subjects I enjoy are the female form or Scenic shots.
At age 38 I started to make #metalsculpture . I completed 2 #HullCollege welding courses and discovered a passion for industrial processes, especially with metal. I enrolled at Hull School of Art & Design on an applied creative 3D design Degree and gained a 2:1.
Over the last eleven years my main practice has been preoccupied mainly by the female form, where I investigate body image, imperfections and challenge the notions of what is deemed beautiful by the media. Although I am currently in the design stages for my first life size male form, which will be a portrayal of Human emotion, through body language.
I have designed and made sets for a small theatre company and also delivered a variety of creative workshops.
Although my Degree is in design, I am very much a maker. I have my own studio where I play with my ever growing collection of power tools and experiment with new materials. My last purchase was a band saw. When I go to a DIY store I’m like a child in a toyshop. I want to touch everything!" Sue has exhibited her sculptures and excellent photographs in Princes Quay. To find out more about Sue's workshops, pop into one of the @creativeandculturalco art spaces in Princes Quay and say hello :-) #igers_hull #igershull #artistsofhull #CreativeandCultural #photography #2017hull #hullcreative #HIPphotofest #sculpture

Alex Loughlin's work encourages the viewer to look at the world from an agnostic stand point. Believing that everything we know is purely a guess that makes sense.
"I create work that I know I connect with visually and try to open multiple narratives, because I myself know as little as the viewer. My guess is no more valid than anyone else's. By not knowing anything, every thing becomes possible."
