Joanna Jones studied at the Byam Shaw School and the Royal Academy Schools receiving her NDD in painting from Goldsmith’s College and winning first prize in the Greater London Council’s painting competition London 1969 before graduating in 1970. She was co-founder of the London studio collective, The Works. In 1978 she moved to Germany establishing her practice both nationally and internationally before returning to the UK in 1997. In 2001 she managed a large-scale projection project on the White Cliffs of Dover, at Samphire Hoe, through a Year of the Artist Award from Arts Council England. Her work bridges painting and performance. The 2006 Pharos Foundation publication Joanna Jones included a conversation with art critic Guy Brett, entitled ‘Inside Out’, in which he said: ‘the inner light of your work goes beyond the problem of form, It represents pure energy’. Joanna extended her practice to the public realm co-founding Dover Arts Development Ltd (DAD) in 2006 with Clare Smith.

Deborah Humm investigates the internal nervous system’s communication method, focusing on (mis)communication between brain and body which results in profound, perplexing and random external manifestations. Heightening the awareness of this to others through poetry in motion, performance and recordings which come together to create experimental digital and 16mm film installations.
