A regular programme of artists & their work on show in our atrium
Valentin Rilliet is a recent graduate of the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL. His paintings portray strange and ghostly figures which feel as if they are only almost part of our world.
The aesthetic in Valentin's work is mainly based on his personal experiences with transculturality (due to his dual Swiss and Chinese nationality) and his interest for mythology and the uncanny. He gets inspiration from 19th Swiss century painters who were keen on depicting religious and mythological scenes such as Arnold Böcklin or Carlos Schwab, to state a few among many others.

Rebecca is a London-based artist and graduate of the Royal College of Art. She explores our connection to everyday objects using wood, paper, found objects and ceramics.
Her latest body of ceramic work entitled Tooling Up, Standing By has been produced during the Covid 19 pandemic and reflects on the feeling of stagnation imposed by the crisis as well as the frustration of being ill equipped for what lies ahead. The ceramic sculptures reference mechanical operating parts, hand-tools, electronic components and miscellaneous fixtures and fittings. The design details of these tools are closely observed through drawing and model making before being playfully translated in clay.
