Open Studio: 17th – 21st July 2019
Andrew Omoding is an Ugandan born, London based artist who creates largely autobiographical works through an intuitive process that begins with the materials he gathers together and evolves around ever-changing stories describing his life and the world as he perceives it. His mixed media sculptures, books and costumes are made using found materials that he weaves, wraps, sews using systematic layering techniques often adding textiles, painted patterns and textures.
At the end of the Residency he will host an Open Studio inviting the audiences to engage with his works in progress.
ActionSpace is delighted to support Andrew Omoding for his Artist Residency at Camden Arts Centre. It has been a pleasure to work with Andrew and watch his practice develop since he joined our studio in 2008. This Residency is the opportunity of a lifetime and marks a significant turning point in Andrew’s artistic career. We are confident that this will be the beginning of a stellar future for this exceptionally talented young artist.
