We are living in a dynamic pattern of emotions, behaviour and energy. Every day, more and more, we are involved in efforts to exist in this technological era. There is a constant flow of energy that is ever shifting, creating a pattern in our life: this is urban, environmental, social, spiritual, psychological and medical. It’s a human pattern, a technological pattern, and a pattern in nature. In which pattern do we exist?
Em-Re-Un presents PAINT BODY PAINT - a group exhibition of arists based in East Anglia featuring work by Will Black, Daniel Brown, Nick Denney, Tanya Goddard, Gennadiy Ivanov, Sue Law, Simon Marshall, Lewis Mitchell, Christina Sabberton, Rebecca Scott, Sophia Shuvalova, Will Teather and Peter Williams.
PAINT BODY PAINT explores the relationship between paint and body, facilitating a dialogue that examines both the historic roots of said relationship and its significance in the contemporary art context. Far from being limited to oil on canvas of the human form the exhibition delves into a variety of possibilities posed by the idea of 'paint', 'body' and the connection between them. From rendering of the flesh to the fleshiness of paint, from human form to human action, from evolution of the medium to rendition of the concept both the paint and the body are respectively questioned, interpreted and reinterpreted as each artist offers their unique vision of this fundamental partnership.
Paint Out Cromer“19th of February in Cromer”,
oil on canvas,100x75cm
It was lovely, sunny, Sunday morning on the beach. One of those warm English February days in Cromer with the sun above the cliffs and a gentle breeze off the sea. I started to paint at 10 am and finished at about 1pm, with just a short break for a coffee from the Rocket Cafe.With Christopher Gooding and Nolwenn Coeffet
