From 17 July – 4 August the Main Gallery is being transformed into a working studio as a group of local artists, including two Phoenix studio members, develop new projects in situ. At the end of the three weeks the space will be open to the public for a day, and visitors will see what the artists have been doing and learn more about their work and creative processes.
Marcelina Amelia is developing a series of paintings and artist books entitled, 'I Only Want Everything', a wry comment on the twenty-first-century culture of ‘on demand’ materialism. Each piece is a journey of self-discovery, questioning the participatory, fast-paced, performative world we live in right now.
Denise Harrison is working on a large scale painting for a forthcoming exhibition. The subject matter is led by a desire to capture the 'contained landscapes' within the soon to be demolished greenhouses in Stanmer Park, near Brighton.
Tom Heatley works in photography and large scale, site-specific installation. He is developing a pilot installation/exhibition within the gallery, trying out new materials and creating spaces within the gallery that correlate with different aspects of his creative practice.
Additional events and public opening times will be listed here as they are confirmed. Follow the residency on Instagram:
