People who have saved this event:



On its penultimate week, fig-2 realises the first solo exhibition by painter Manuel Mathieu, the successful applicant of the fig-2 open call for students. Mathieu was chosen from 235 applications from over 25 different Universities and Colleges around the UK from diverse fields including art, fashion, mathematics and science. Mathieu will show three new paintings that he completed over the past three months. His paintings oscillate between figurative and abstract, making use of various techniques against the canvas such as frottage and intervention. Mathieu concentrates on the isolation of the individual, amplifying the subject’s surrounding by depicting desolate yet intriguing voids. Influenced by seminal painters such as Alex Collville, Mathieu appropriates scenes and scenarios that reside in collective consciousness, drawing them into new windows of perception.
