The Art Cooperative is pleased to present Emergence 17’ an exhibition that entices the eye to voyage into the stories of colour and emotion. Breaking through layers into hidden spaces, immersing oneself into the authorships of each artist’s work.
Featuring five artists:
Blair Lamar weaves stories in her abstract figuration artwork. Combining specific colour palettes, abstracted shapes, and emerging compositions of human form. Blair invites the spectator to discover the story of each painting and make it their own. The inspired stories behind the creations of these works are revealed through poetry, and interactive media, but are only an extra antidote to the work for the viewer’s curiosity.
Eva Chloe Vazaka using the written word to abstract it, into layers that allow the viewer to travel into her paintings and emerge with unique emotional reactions. Eva's work speaks to the viewer first through aesthetics of colour, then invites them to find a deeper emotional meaning, with the energy exerted into the rollerworks.
Tsiana Maxted features women emerging from the backgrounds of each painting,
using realism without the idealism of Italian painting techniques in contrast to art history. These women are not objectified, perfected, or there for your imagined pleasure, they are in the foreground as themselves. The artist makes a political stamp on the history of females in art and women’s portrayal in society.
Susan Bunn creates landscapes saturated in colour, using some of her own created oils along with acrylics, gold and silver leaf. Susan constructs her compositions from pieces of landscapes she has encountered on her travels. The viewer can walk in and become immersed in the created wildernesses. The latest projects of Susan’s include sculptural wire trees, paintings and music, mixed with poetry, drawing the viewer to a place half remembered, to emerge with an emotion of nostalgia.
Cheryl Tarbuck draws on her experiences as a traveller and illustrator to question one's identity and place in a changing world. As a reaction to personal circumstances, the artist questions what is assumed, what is hidden, what is shown and what emerges. Her work invites the viewer to look, to question or to enjoy the colour and pattern of life.
Emergence 17’ gives rise to ideas and a place to meet between viewers and the artists. This exhibition brings to light “alternative realities” that coexist within the curated space. These works emerge and transform into an art piece itself to be explored.
