Re marks the 35th anniversary of the Bermondsey Artists’ Group. It celebrates the diversity and progression of practices by the membership and charts creative approaches and evolving processes within this diverse group.
The exhibition brings together work by over 50 local artists. Some of the works go back to the early years of the group’s existence; some are from the artists’ current practice. Each of the works has been selected by the artist to reflect upon their membership of the BAG and how their practice has developed during that period; reconsidering, reconstructing and reinventing.
I will be showing The baby Jesus in a Hazmat Suit and will be taking part in an artist walk and talk for the closing event on November 3rd. This painting became a starting point for a larger scale tryptic reconsidering the scale it was reconstructed to form the first panel the next two panel reinvented the structure of the first to form a coherent narrative.
