HEO Artist’s Statements 20 and 21
In the Moment, by Pia Goddard, Digital print, framed 17”x17”, £250. I'm the one with the camera so I don't make much of an appearance in the photographic history of my family or in my creative practice, so initially I took this picture to show my face for once, and to show how I'm always trying to find the right moment...

Spring Exhibition. All welcome.

The self-portrait, by Karen Piddington, is closely bound-up in the notion of becoming-animal, where the artist is straying into the psychological territory of animals. The artist finds a position of sameness with animals. She steps into their world to explore it not from a separate human position but...
