Outside In: Journeys brings together the diverse work and stories of a number of artists involved in Outside In – from James Lake’s life-size figure of a runner about to take off, made entirely of cardboard, commissioned for the London 2012 Paralympic Games, to Rakibul Chowdhury’s energetic paintings that incorporate popular culture into depictions of modern life. The exhibition epitomises Outside In’s objective to create a fairer art world – challenging traditional values and institutional judgements about whose artworks can and should be displayed. The exhibition will feature ‘Woman’ by Nigel Kingsbury.
Nigel Kingsbury created delicate portraits of women, depicting them as mystical goddesses with heaving bosoms, attired in glamorous ball gowns and floating dresses. Nigel’s drawings have a mysterious quality that transcend time, each carrying the dedication “Loves Nigel” or ” Nigel Loves” followed by an abundance of kisses.
The exhibition will also include Andrew Omoding‘s piece ‘House has light and ladder to fix roof- it’s raining to much’, which was made for HOUSE Biennal earlier this year. Andrew Omoding’s work is intuitive and instinctive, using his tacit knowledge of form, shape and construction to add and discard elements as he works. He buzzes around the studio, exploring the cupboards and shelves for buried treasures, which he uses to create large-scale sculptural forms. He builds up his creations by systematic layering, wrapping and attaching, often adding textiles, painted patterns and textures to complete the piece.
