Alumni artists’ exhibit (detail) in Bangkok

An international art exhibition at H Project Space In Bangkok, curated by the School of Art and Design’s Andrew Bracey, has featured work by three BA (Hons) Fine Arts graduates.

Christopher Bagnall (class of 2013), Tom Cretney (class of 2009) and Steven Ingman (class of 2007), along with several members of staff from the School of Art and Design have had their work displayed in an exhibition comprising 118 international artists, situated in the unique setting of a gallery space within a traditionally constructed Thai house, where each artist has selected for display a close-up from one of their paintings.

Each artwork fits into the distinctive wooden framework of the walls and en-masse, the different artworks form a collage, with visitors encouraged to make their own associations and interpretations of the juxtaposition of the detail of each piece.

With work encompassing the abstract, landscapes, and figurative art, and pieces created with a variety of medium, from oil and gouache to pigmented silicone, Andrew Bracey explains further about the exhibition: “In the studio I have found my own relationship to working on a painting is up close to it, with only occasional glimpses of the whole as I step back. This exhibition is an attempt to bring this studio mentality to the gallery. There is a power in the detail, it offers up fresh possibilities for viewing painting.”

Following its initial presentation in Bangkok, ending on 6th July, it will be reconfigured for more conventional exhibition spaces and moved first to the Transition Gallery in London in September and then to The Usher Gallery in Lincoln between 19th December 2014 and 19th April 2015.
