November saw ActionSpace open our Camden studio for an exhibition as part of Cockpit Arts Christmas Open Studios. ActionSpace artists exhibited their work we had hundreds of visitors and nearly 40 pieces of artwork were sold.
The theme of the exhibition was Manipulated Material: Responses to The Medium of paint which was curated by Daisy Cooper.
The set brief was to respond to paint and explore its versatility enabling artist’s to express their individuality, the outcome being each artist’s interpretation of the medium of paint.
34 ActionSpace artists approached the brief from different perspectives. For example Abu Hasnat specifically selected three colours and used them to express himself, playing close attention to the paint and his actions, whilst Philippa Marshall combined paint and glue, applying paint to cardboard to create a 3-D sculptural form.
