About The Artists
Simon Bray is a Manchester based commercial landscape photographer who explores combinations of physical landforms, bodies of water, natural light and unique timing to capture landscape imagery that expresses a sense of space and freedom.
He allows the sense of scale experienced within a natural location to dictate the form and composition of an image, often employing negative space within the frame to amplify a notion of tranquility or drama, whilst allowing natural light to establish the tone of each image.
Tom Musgrove is a Manchester based artist. Drawing is the foundation of his work, initially capturing gestures, form and shapes from the landscape that are then expanded upon in his studio space to create fine art pieces.
He produces work in a variety of mediums, as painting, sculpture or drawing, utilising raw pigment, found natural sources and wax layers to represent the location and atmospheric conditions within his work.
