AboutTen enthusiastic young artists are pleased to announce their upcoming exhibition 166 bpm (Beats Per Minute) to go on display at the Walcot Chapel gallery in late March.
The concept behind the exhibition derives from the colour of passion and rage, excitement and fire, danger, and of course, blood. Scientifically known to increase ones heart rate by around 14%, the colour red and its effect on our physical state are the underlying themes of this innovative collection of work.
Viewers should prepare themselves for an energetic and variable show which features disciplines ranging from sculpture and ceramics to printmaking, photography, textiles and painting with work as equally diverse in their red related subject matter as their medium.
Of the artists, Hannah Wilmshurst explores the absurdity of human surveillance and the inherent desire to be a voyeur, while Tom Maryniak's interests lie in the moments between peace and chaos, time and destruction.
Whether it is to shock, excite or nauseate, all of the artists will be attempting to increase the heart rate and leave an impression which will echo in the aorta for years to come.
