Featured artist
Moorland Productions (Kenneth Hay / Seetha A)

Moorland Productions creative partnership was founded in 1994 to showcase the creative work of Kenneth G. Hay, and Seetha A. We work across a variety of media including painting, sculpture, installation, print, photography, video and sound. The work produced explores different cultural, historical and linguistic themes through stylistically discrete forms. The works are planned, created and worked on by both artists, often on the same canvas using a distributed artistic practice between their two studios in London and SW France, where they also run an annual international Art Festival (LAF: Larroque Art Festival). The Moorland Productions site provides information about upcoming shows, exhibitions and images of past projects, as well as information about our research, publications and collaborations”.

Working collaboratively since 1994 as Moorland Productions, Ken and Seetha have participated in hundreds of exhibitions Biennales and Art Fairs worldwide. Moorland Productions are interested in an open, collaborative and experimental approach to artmaking and operate between their two studios. The artworks are conceived, discussed and subsequently produced by both artists working collaboratively, using Internet communications but also regular studio visits which enable them to literally work on the same canvas. Our cross-media include painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, multimedia, photography, digital media, film and video, sound, installation and websites, but we also make and design objects.
