Host: Ben Sadler
1:30 PM13:30

Host: Ben Sadler

Driven by curiosity of the conversation and what occurs within that symbiotic dance, the observed intimate space, the sharing of information of course; yet this is just a surface.

Things manifest in the moment but there is an opportunity to take something away which continues to emerge and evolve long after the last word is spoken, the front door is closed, and the locks turned after the final guest leaves the building.


Host is a new program of one hour talks hosted by Julie M Oneill in conjunction with Room Art to be held once a month, on a Sunday, with an invited guest and a small audience.

The sessions will be recorded for Room Art Podcast collections.


Our first guest is Ben Sadler

Ben Sadler spends a lot of his time making art. During the day he works with his friend Phil Duckworth as one half of the artist-duo Juneau Projects, which Ben and Phil set up in 2001. In the evenings Ben makes paintings, drawings and sculptures in his living room. He really enjoys making art, it makes him happy. He studied at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, University of Oxford (1995-1998) and at the Royal College of Art, London (2002-2004). He lives in Birmingham with his wife Katy, his daughter Hazel and their cat Oscar.

Research Area:

Juneau Projects’ work is often concerned with the relationship between nature, technology and culture. They are also interested in exploring the effectiveness of collaboration as a means of artistic production.

Ben Sadler’s solo work mixes his daily family life with half-remembered mythologies and half-forgotten visions.

We will be talking about Drawing, Stories as influence and Social media as gallery platform(s)


Julie M Oneill

Julie M Oneill is the UK based Multidisciplinary Artist who favours a responsive and multifaceted approach to producing work, utilizing Sculpture, Photography, Video, Sound and Other, the work explores such themes as: social fabrics and histories, familial relationships, experiences of architecture, philosophy of space, and text as sculptural and poetic form.

The work incorporates an investigative and collaborative approach with a need for Deep Listening in order to locate philosophical remains and residue from social activity as material to inform process and enrich engagement with others.

Julie has produced work for Live Art events, Exhibitions both Nationally and Internationally,

Co-ordinated Arts in Health programs in the community, participatory projects in educational and community settings, lectured in Visual Communications and Fine Art subjects and acted as Mentor to other practitioners.
