In the exhibition Disparate Motives, Curious Duke Gallery shows eight artists from backgrounds that could barely be more different. Born across four decades, from self-taught to MA, teachers, mothers, engineers... but all driven to make art. Through Magenta Art in North London, these artists have met, bantered, argued and played off each other until someone suggested an exhibition. In some ways they share a theme, the only theme any contemporary artist has, their reaction to the time and place they live in - in this case London 2013, but the work they produce varies greatly. Driven by their experiences, the people in their lives, the places they have come from and the things they have seen: Disparate Motives.
