Florence Mytum

Florence Mytum creates work that crosses between painting, sculpture and site-specific installation. She playfully explores the physical and aesthetic qualities of a wide range of materials, questioning sensory hierarchies through investigating how we engage with and understand the world on a physical, material and bodily level.

Florence completed her MA in painting at the Slade School of Fine Art in 2018, and BA in Painting at Wimbledon College of Art in 2015.

Recent exhibitions include; Material Instincts at Kaleidoscope Gallery (2018), Girls Just Wanna Have Fun at Unit 3 Projects (2018) and 31 Celsius at ASC Gallery (2017).

Gayle Chong Kwan

Gayle Chong Kwan was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and lives and works in London. Her large-scale photographic, installation, sound, participatory, and video work is exhibited nationally and internationally, both in major galleries and in the public realm.

Gayle’s work is an ongoing investigation into simulacra and the sublime, which she explores through immersive environments and mise-en-scenes, constructed in states of resolution and dissolution between imagined futures, alternative presents, and fictional mechanisms.

For her ident, Gayle has created an exciting and engaging interpretation of the ITV logo out of used milk bottles, referring to ITV’s role at the heart of everyday life as well as the culture landscape of Britain. She has built up and cut into the used milk bottles, referencing aspects of iconic British landmarks, such as St Paul’s Cathedral in London, De la Warr Pavilion at Bexhill on Sea, Albert Dock in Liverpool, Blackpool Tower, Lincoln Cathedral, Giants Causeway in Northern Ireland, Edinburgh Castle and the Millennium Centre in Wales. The sculptural work looks like a landscape when viewed from the side.

Gayle has developed large-scale installations using discarded and waste packaging for
institutions including the Southbank Centre, Delfina Foundation, and the Centro Cultural de Moravia in
Colombia.

Liz West

Liz West graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2007. Her broad body of work encompasses wall-based artwork, sculpture, and site-specific installations, where she mixes luminous colour and radiant light.

Liz's investigation into the relationship between colour and light is often realised through an engagement between materiality and a given site. By playing and adjusting colour, Liz brings out the intensity and composition of her spatial arrangements.

For her ITV ident, Liz uses coloured mirrors to reflect the light of the logo across the space, creating a bright and vibrant effect.

Liz has been commissioned worldwide by institutions and organisations including Natural History Museum, National Trust, and National Science and Media Museum. Permanent works are sited in London, Manchester and Bury.

Rubbena Aurangzeb-Tariq

Rubbena Aurangzeb-Tariq is a London-based artist whose work concerns culture, deaf identity and being an Asian woman in western society. Through painting and installations, she creates visual representations of language and emotional expression through her use of colour and form.

Rubbena works with schools and galleries facilitating creative workshops and leads exhibition tours in British Sign Language (BSL). Rubbena works in the NHS as a Deaf Mental Health Therapist and is a registered Art Psychotherapist

For her ITV ident, Rubbena created a sculptural representation of BSL. BSL is officially recognised as one of the UK’s indigenous languages and is a vital expression of Deaf cultural identity. Deaf people continue to experience profound inequality in UK society. BSL provision is crucially important in providing access to terrestrial and online broadcast media, including ITV’s output.

Rubbena has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally.
