Artists Features, Intermixability
Every year, Liquitex supports
Art Prize, celebrating emerging
talent. Designed to have meaningful impact on the career of one emerging
artist, it is an annual residency and exhibition award for UK-based artists in
painting and drawing. The winner is given the time, space and materials to
develop work for a solo show at Griffin Gallery.
Griffin Art Prize winner Chudamani Clowes is the accolade’s
most intermixable winner yet. Using media from Spray Paint to Ink on unexpected surfaces like survival
blankets and banana paper, she encompasses ceramic, print, painting,
performance and sculpture into her work. A whirlwind of vitality, Clowes is
fundamentally interested in human stories, particularly those of displacement
and cultural differences.
During her residency in a studio right next door to the
Liquitex Labs, Clowes spent time investigating the local area, White City.
Inspired by the area’s Franco-British Exhibition of 1908 as well as the
ethnographic archive at the British Museum, Clowes uses a wide variety of media
to represent cultural and human displacement.
With her first solo show just around the corner, the artist
will invite viewers to interact with her work and join in performances, which
will be set against a backdrop of intermixable paintings, as well as sculptures
White City runs from 28th
August to 2nd October 2015 at Griffin Gallery, London, W11 4AJ.
