 sklee  Dr Steve Klee (2018-pres.)
Steve Klee is a Lecturer in Fine Art in College of Arts. He specialises in contemporary art, aesthetics & philosophy (espcially new realist and materialist approaches)
Dr Andrew Bracey (2017-pres.)
Andrew Bracey joined the University of Lincoln as Senior Lecturer in fine art in 2007. Previously he taught as an associate and visiting lecturer at many other Universities including Liverpool John Moores, Salford, Wolverhampton, Manchester Metropolitan and Huddersfield. Andrew Bracey is an artist and curator based in Waddington, Lincolnshire. Bracey’s practice hovers on the fringes of painting as it crosses over and expands into curating, installation, sculpture, drawing and animation. He often uses existing sites and the readymade as alternatives to the traditional canvas support for painting, creating tensions between the hand-made and the man-made. His practice-based research focuses on the slippage and overlap between the artist and the curator, as a move into curatorial practices as a creative act and an exploration of parasitical tendencies of the contemporary artist using existing artworks as a host for new artworks.
