The second ever Discoveries exhibition features work by three recently graduated
emerging artists scouted by gallery directors, Francesca Fiumano and Andrés Clase over the past twelve months.
German artist and recent Royal Academy Schools graduate Marianne Thoemer boldly
blends traditional techniques of composition and unconventional materials. We will be
exhibiting a selection of works from her “States of Affairs” series.
Marijke Keyser is an American artist, based in London and Seattle. Having recently
graduated from the Slade School of art with an MFA Fine Art, Keyser is continuing to
develop her practice which has its basis in her personal relationship to landscape. Keyser is a multi- disciplined artist, having experimented with stop-motion animation, live story telling performances and site-specific installations.
From a young age Chinese artist Xuesen Liu has felt a connection to the visual arts and
a desire to rebel against cultural expectation and pursue the unconventional. Having
begun a career as a graphic designer in Beijing it soon became clear that, although this
is was considered a respected profession, it was not the path for him. Following an
extended pilgrimage to the yoga academy of Chiangmai, Liu realised that the only way in which he could be truly content was to follow his long-held passion for art.
