    How We Look brings together Wirral Metropolitan College Fellowship program artists Louis Jeck-Prestidge and Jonathan Benson.

    Louis Jeck-Prestidge’s work centres around the relationship between found objects and surfaces of the body. These surfaces can be manipulated through various techniques. He uses basic casting techniques to create sculptural work that expresses a hidden and not always obvious bond between the human body and the objects around us. These objects such as kettles, fridges, beds, taps – all of which he finds around the city in skips or just on the floor – eventually become parts of installation pieces in which each individual object combines to form a narrative.

    Jonathan Benson’s work is a product of an expanding process, a personal exploration into Western visual culture via destruction, preservation and transformation. Exploring how images of great symbolic, intellectual, and emotional power emerge in Western antiquity and then reappear and are reanimated in art and culture of later times.
