The Old Print Works is proud to announce It’s first open-submission exhibition, HOME. Featuring the work of fifteen, emerging contemporary artists.

About

While each practitioner retains the integrity of their vision, the work is linked through a common thread, exploring the meaning of ‘home’. 

Exhibiting a selection of painting’s from her series ‘The Connectivist’s Dilemma’, Jessica Kirkpatrick explores the notion of home from both the real and the conceptual. Her ‘mash-ups’ of stereotypical suburban America and the Scottish landscape study the experience of fragmentation during migration and the act of reconciling and assimilating oneself. Through her work, Jessica explores the utopian desire for connection, community and middle-class consumerism.

Whilst Matthew Humphreys, a filmmaker, photographer and the hearing child to two profoundly deaf parents, draws on languages and communication embedded in social relationships within his work, creating an installation based on his parent's living room, he reconnects with his childhood experience. 

Along with Sylvia Chan, who returned to her hometown in Hong Kong and captured the juxtaposition of the cultures bustling, over-crowded streets and ingrained loneliness. HOME investigates meaning through differing mediums, interpretations and ideologies.

Opening on the 21st July at 12 am in The Old Print Works, Upper Gallery, benefitting from the factories classic, industrial architecture and vast, undisturbed natural light. Surrounded by creative organisations, projects and in conjunction with ORT Galleries ‘Schwarmerei Members Show’.  Free entry and drinks.
