on Friday 4 March from 6-8pm
This March we are pleased to introduce two recently graduated artists, both from Brighton University (in 2014 & 2013 respectively), where they studied under Tom Hammick: Alice Walter and David Auborn.
We would describe both painters as abstract expressionists. Although there is an element of representation in some works, this should not be taken too literally.
Both artists have achieved much since graduating, having won awards and residencies to develop their practice.
Alice Walter's paintings use repeated imagery, symbols. These are tools she uses to edge towards feelings of familiarity or intimacy. They could be dreams, or thoughts running through your mind where elements can be overlaid or juxtaposed with others, creating new constructions.
David Auborn's works are similarly abstract, but more textural, one could say earthy. He wants to reflect the physicality of life and our place in it. This might be at a micro level showing individual cells or a macro level representing large buildings. In all there is a human element with interactions, emotions and the "tugs and pulls of the everyday."
