    Mark Selby & Jordan Baseman

    Mark Selby & Jordan Baseman

    Mark Selby’s practice mainly revolves around sculpture, installation and film, using an engineering approach to materials, computation and mechanics in order to explore how images, objects and human agency are affected by technological rationality. Creating and collaborating with machines to develop often complex and elongated processes of making, his work asks questions of access to information from both their aesthetics and function; asking what the potential and limits of programming, rules and instructions can offer.

    .

    .

    Jordan Baseman’s work is best described as a synthesis of reportage, portraiture, documentary, creative non-fiction, narrative practices, that are combined with experimental filmmaking techniques.

    .

    .

    We were invited to Jordans Studio for our chat, which is based in East London. Our chat travels through stories of destroyed self portraits, working in a Emergency Psychiatric Unit, the intimacy of computers, putting screwdrivers through paintings and allowing space for hard work.

    Emma Talbot

    Emma Talbot

    Emma Talbot is an artist based in London and is winner of the 8th Max Mara Art Prize for Women. Through drawing, painted silk hangings, 3 dimensional forms, installation, sound and - most recently - animation, Emma has developed a distinct visual world.

    .

    .

    Her work explores personal subjectivity, which is then cast into the wider context of prevalent contemporary concerns  - such as our relationships with nature, our intimate engagement with technology, the way we communicate and power structures. Emma’s work has a hand-drawn, direct quality - using combinations of figurative imagery, painted text and flowing pattern to articulate non linear narratives.

    .

    .

    Recent exhibitions include GEM Kunstmuseum, The Hague, A 2019 ArtNight Commission at William Morris Gallery, London, Tate St Ives, Turner Contemporary and Arcadia Missa New York

    .

    .

    Emma has forthcoming solo exhibitions at Eastside Projects Birmingham, Dundee Contemporary Arts and Kunsthalle Giessen, Germany, The Whitechapel Gallery and Collezione Maramotti.

    Anna graduated from the RCA in 2015 and holds a BA from Central Saint Martins. In 2017 she won Griffin Art Prize and the Young Contemporary Talent Prize supported by the Ingram Collection.

    .

    .

    She has been shortlisted for several prizes, including The London Group, in 2013, where she was presented with a prize by Frank Bowling. In 2019 her show Muscle Memory at Elephant West in London saw a collaboration with musician and friend Kieran Hebden also known as Four Tet drawing on grief, movement, vibration and memory.

    .

    .

    Anna describes painting as attitude. Painting serves as a physical intelligence and makes the most sense when described in relation to the body and often come out of chaos. Her Ukrainian grandmother used to say: “If it wasn’t all lies it would be the truth"

    Tahmina Negmat

    Tahmina Negmat

    Tahmina Negmat is currently on a year-long residency at the Carpenters Wharf Studios in Hackney Wick and

    making paintings about Joe Exotic from Tiger King in her quarantine flat in Moscow.

    Tahmina treats her studio as a spectacle arena where she wants to throw a real

    celebration for the anti-hero the Trickster ("A demonic-comic double of a

    cultural hero, endowed with the features of a naughty dodger”. For her The Trickster is

    the main protagonist of today and takes a lot of inspiration from cinema

    and books.

    .

    .

    As a way into this thinking Tahmina explains that her painting ‘Endless Infatuations with Malcolm Mcdowell', which you can see over on our instagram page is a tribute towards my obsession over the portrait of the antihero. Sh says ‘I have a real antagonistic reaction to pitch-perfect moralism, as I think I see most

    things that are perfect and clean-cut as a nice antisocial package where the

    whole investment goes towards oneself. However the anti-heroes are raw,

    and they are rare. They have this weird self conflicted duality going on.

    Similarly like looking at the rock in Goya’s painting and never quite seeing

    just the rock, but the tripled eyed devil, ongoing mutating faces, a depiction

    of the birth of something and the whole mortality is in that rock. So I see the

    same rawness and wrongness in the rounded and enlarged facial features

    of Malcolm McDowell who played a lead role in Kubrick’s “Clockwork

    Orange”. And Malcolm’s face is round and beautiful like it’s been sat on by

    the birth of Venus.
