Denise Wyllie is an artist who enjoys the 'opera' or full range of human experience expressed in her artwork whether it is working in science, with the community or alone in isolated landscapes. Whilst small in stature Wyllie takes on huge projects, ambitious in scale and concept which convey complex aspects about the human condition. One such large scale art project was "The Angel of the Lee Valley" — a monumental land art the size of a football pitch.
Denise Wyllie's work features in collections in the United Kingdom, Russia, Puerto Rico, the USA and Germany. Denise Wyllie was the first artist to link with Russian artists during Glasnost. This led to the foundation of Art Kontakt Russia/UK — an independent, international group of artists, who are now the leading artists' organisation in Karelia.
Clare O Hagan
Clare O Hagan has twenty years experience in publishing and graphic design. She worked on Screen International, the premier source of information for the global film business. Clare was winner of the Managing Directors Award for Excellence whilst working at International Thomson Business Publishing.
As an independent publisher, she published the critically acclaimed Irelantis a fascinating book showing the Irish artist, Sean Hillen's invented world.
Her graphic design work features internationally. As manager of Empire Interactive's (a leading computer games developer/publisher) design studio, she endeavoured to create excellence in brand design and management. In 2001 Clare had a three month installation of her art work "Beauty at the Tate", at Tate Modern, London. This installation was her response to this beautiful building by the Thames, housing in her opinion, dismal work. As director of The Bertold Gallery, London, Clare curated many successful exhibitions promoting artists working in London.
