Jed Buttress is an investigative artist who works predominantly with sculpture, installation and digital media. Based in the UK, he is currently studying a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art at Newcastle University. Combining an interest in science and psycho-geography, and injecting a dark sense of humour into his work, he has displayed work in galleries across the country, notably in his recent debut solo exhibition 'Apocrypha' (2017), The Old Fire Station, Carlisle. Jed is also a founding member of Valence, a programme that allows artists, scientists and researchers to collaborate together. In addition to his ongoing residency with the WCMR, he has been funded by the Wellcome Trust, the Newcastle Alumni Association Fund, the Newcastle Institute for Creative Arts Practice, the Newcastle University Humanities Research Institute and the Bartlett Offsite Award.
