No.1 Paint at BLANKSPACE

"If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint."
Edward Hopper

No.1: Paint is the first in an exciting series of medium-specific exhibitions to be held at BLANKSPACE. Celebrating the unique nature of paint, this exhibition will showcase work from 24 varied and distinctive emerging artists from throughout the UK.
Encompassing a wide variety of styles and forms, from impressionistic to abstract, sculpture to installation, the core subject of this diverse collection is: paint.
The selected artists individually push the fundamental boundaries of paint, investigating the numerous angles available within the selected art form.

No.1: Paint is about artists exploring the medium of paint in different and innovative ways, with their ideas and concepts being communicated through purely visual means. The work we have selected encompasses everything from more traditional painting to sculptural pieces and installation work - all coming together to create a unique and exciting show.
Jamie Hyde, Curator.

I'm pleased to have five of my plywood paintings selected for this group show curated by the Blank Media Collective.

8 - 25 September 2011, BLANKSPACE, Hulme St, Manchester.

Sprite and Sundance at Savill Gardens

The sculptures are now on display until the end of August on the large brick wall that runs along the new Rose Garden.

The gardens have a contemporary visitors centre that has won several RIBA Awards and was shortlisted for the Stirling Prize in 2007, as well as lots of fantastic plant forms to study, such as sempervivum, tree ferns and echinops.
