Free Painters and Sculptors Members Exhibition 2014
2nd - 14th June (Preview 3rd June 6-9pm)
WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU SEE
Missing Narrative is the annual member's exhibition by the Free Painters and Sculptors (FPS) and will be held at the Menier Gallery London Bridge.
This exhibition intends to investigate how visual arts often communicate something that is beyond vocabulary.
âThe painting is not a surface, but on a plane which is imagined. It moves the mind. It is not there physically at all. It is an illusion, a piece of magic, so what you see is what you see.'
Philip Guston Abstract Expressionist 1913 - 1980
ABOUT THE FREE PAINTERS AND SCULPTORS
FPS is an artist lead organisation that supports and promotes artists to develop their work on their own terms. The group builds long-term relationships with artists and promotes the dialogue and exchange of ideas within the visual arts through annual exhibitions and events.
Established in 1952, FPS was originally associated with the ICA (Institute of Contemporary Arts). Founding members featured many high profile and influential artists, including Roy Rasmussen, Lyall Watson and Maurice Jadot.
FPS played a significant part in the establishment of abstract art in the 1950's and 60's and was the first of a number of post war movements that freed artists from the orthodoxy of rigid and purely technical judgements. This ethos continues today and we welcome applications from talented artists at all stages of their career.
