The Abacus is proud to present the last exhibition of the year which comes from an exciting group of artists currently working in their final year of the Fine Art course in Cardiff Metropolitan university.
the act of exposing, laying open, or uncovering
‘Exposure’ is the next foray for the group behind the Exhibition ‘Substance’. A group show that hopes to lay open the artistic process. A three day residency, and three day exhibition focusing on a group of up and coming fine artists within Cardiff allowing the public an insight into the burgeoning arts scene in Cardiff, as it happens.
The project proposes a three day residency, completely open, in which the public can come and experience the artist at work. This breaking down of barriers between artist and public, allowing them into their own mind, will be beneficial to both those creating, and those viewing, for it allows the artist direct feedback from a different audience than other artists. Creating a new environment in which creativity can rebound from one artist to another. There will be a wide variety of artistic styles; Illustrators, Sculptors, Installation Artists, Performers, each bringing something new and exciting to the table; their differing world views and opinions melding together to lay open the role of the artist within the studio, and the shamanic nature of the artist at work. The residency will end after three days, and then there will be a short exhibition in order for the artworks to be viewed in a more professional, orchestrated way, after the madness of the creative process.

Sarah Padbury – Emily Unsworth-white – Magdalena Lackowska – Eloise Barratt – Sam Wall – Rhys Scorey – Ethan Dodd – Mylo Elliott – Nathan Mullis – Fingal Green – Emily Panizzi – Heather Kirk – Mabli Eustace
