Artists reveal all at University Campus Suffolk

PUBLISHED: 11:13 05 January 2016 | UPDATED: 11:13 05 January 2016



Sixteen artists provide an insight to what inspires their creativity

Sixteen established artists – all with East Anglian connections – give art lovers a rare glimpse into the creative process and what inspires them in an exhibition called Collateral Drawing at University Campus Suffolk’s Waterfront Gallery starting this month.

The exhibition provides an insight into each artist’s working methodology, exposing various clues and elements integral to the creation of a final artwork.

Exhibiting artists include Glenn Brown, Gillian Carnegie, Ryan Gander, Biggs & Collings, Graham Crowley, Kayle Brandon, Bella Easton, Stephen Felmingham, Chris Hawtin, Julian Perry, Rebecca & Mike, John Stark, Michael Stubbs, Trisant, Daphne Warburg Astor and Richard Wathen.

Co-curator and exhibiting artist Bella Easton said: “There’s more to an artwork than its finished state, but exhibitions concentrate on that, along perhaps with preparatory studies, which act as preliminary versions of that state. Yet there may be any number of by-products from the making of an artwork, and that is what Collateral Drawing explores.

Co-curator and exhibiting artist John Stark says: “The Waterfront Gallery located on the Marina docks in Ipswich provides the ideal setting for an exhibition curated with the highest consideration within an educational environment. The main aim here is that we all learn something from the experience, most of all the students that inhabit that space on a daily basis.”

Each artist was approached by the curators, Bella Easton and John Stark, six months in advance and asked to retain the collateral elements of some new work by isolating or documenting elements of their working environment, as a means to record the artists’ subconscious actions around their day-to-day creativity. These elements were then carefully collated and presented alongside an artwork that the artist produced alongside them during this period.

Collateral Drawing January 4-February 19

Artists Talk and Finissage: February 17

Location: The Waterfront Building, University Campus Suffolk, Ipswich, Suffolk, IP4 1QJ
