A Collaboration in Identity and Representation in Paint.
Repre are a group of artists that share a common vision to capture and depict reality. From the body to the landscape, each artist is concerned with not only depicting the real, but exploring the boundaries of realism within their practice. There are a variety of ideas that the artists are driven by such as surface, mass media, atmosphere or the deconstruction of reality, these themes will provide the basis for the residency and will give an insight into the role of realism within each artist's work.
