Backfield is the third in a series that features artists associated with Goldsmiths Department of Art, University of London. Curated by Colin Day, Tichborne Gallery aims to bring provocative and original contemporary art practice to Brighton drawn from Day’s long association with the world-class institution. ‘Many graduates of Goldsmiths Department of Art are among the most recognised names working in art today. ‘
Artists participating include Swedish painter Sally Kindberg who describes her practice as ‘containing bold elements of unrestricted wrongness.’ She is planning to create an installation in the studio by covering a wall with oil paintings of various cheeses. Also included will be morphed portraits of strange characters from a project entitled Terracotta Breeze.
Aimee Selby & Hoagy Dunnell present a series of photographs documenting spheres that have developed water lines on their surface through periods of time set in various bodies of water.
Colin Day’s large-scale abstract oil paintings have been present in the festival in various diverse venues across the city. The backfield of the title refers to the fine art workshops at the college where Day has worked for over 39 years.
Tichborne Gallery is at 18 Tichborne Street in the centre of Brighton. The Gallery is open weekends in May, 2014 from 12 to 6. AND some Fridays. Contact us if you are in town and want to have a look!
