New Artist in Residence

Today's xsite is Anna...

We have a new Artist in Residence here at xsite. Amy Dover joined us at the beginning of the month and will be with us for 3 months. She is working on new illustrations and prints of her own and will also be getting involved in some projects with xsite. We are very glad to have her and her collection of taxidermy livening up a little corner of our studios.

Amy's work is beautifully executed pencil illustrations of man, beast and bird, often dark and macabre in nature. She is inspired by music, poetry and folklore and tackles subjects like death, humiliation and deceit. You can see more of her work on her website http://www.amydover.com/Home.html

Toffee Factory has Colour!

Today's xsite is Mal...

The Toffee Factory is now 2 months from handover and the external envelope it almost complete.  Green, red and pink cladding panels now adorn the Victorian brickwork and the embossed aluminium will shortly be applied to the stair tower.   Inside, partitions are up and offices formed, the reception space is taking shape and the Biomass boiler is in.
