     Born in Hong Kong, Alexandra Lethbridge is a UK-based photographer. Found photographs, archival imagery and constructed images of her own making form the basis of her art. Drawing upon a range of references and source material, she combines science with fictional constructed images, bringing them together as a form of storytelling. Her practice deliberately mixes fact and fiction to create expanded views of the subject matter she explores.

     Jasmine Pradissitto is a physicist and painter who creates “Quantum Sculptures” in light, plastic and metal. Born in Italy but now based in South London, Pradissitto earned a Ph.D. from the University of Central London with a focus on the Quantum behavior of silicon in fiber optics.  She went on to study fine art at Goldsmiths College and Sir John Cass.  She embraces the dual worlds of the physicist and artist, creating works she describes as “holograms you can touch.”  Jasmine’s forms are inspired by nature and the human condition and interpreted through the lens of scientific research.

     London-based artist and co-founder of Hospital Rooms, a project introducing site-specific, museum quality artworks to mental health wards, Tim A. Shaw creates immersive spaces that have an atmosphere separate from the gallery space, and manipulates the way individual works can be seen within them.

     The Quin Arts program makes art and its creators accessible, intimately connecting guests with New York culture and its creative community through a bi-monthly exhibition series, interactive artist salons, a remarkable permanent collection, and special features such as a 15-foot high abstract video art wall. MTArt is the first artist agency in the world. MTArt promotes a select group of up-and-coming, visual artists. Artists are chosen based on innovative techniques, inspiring content and strong vision.
