James Bell was born in Edinburgh and now lives in Brittany in another part of the Celtic fringes. He has published two collections: the just vanished place (2008) and fishing from beginners (2010) both with tall-lighthouse. He continues to write and publish poetry internationally, both online and terrestrial. He contributes articles to an English language journal in France.


Mel Cole is exploring ideas of the grotesque, abject and the uncanny. Her work has a dark undertone, making ambiguous suggestions, which have the potential to unsettle and disturb. Her drawings animate the inanimate, treating the object as if it had a sensibility, making the banal perverted and sinister. Her drawing style, the combination of delicate pencil lines and unnerving subject can simultaneously repulse and attract the viewer. www.melcole.co.uk
