FOUR showcases a collection of new work by Rubbena Aurangzeb-Tariq, Marissa Mardon, Peter Reeds and Christopher Sacre, four British artists with backgrounds in installation, painting and photography.
The core of Rubbena Aurangzeb-Tariq’s work is a fascination with the subtle revelation of unconscious conflicts, whether that tension is between cultures, people or parts of the self. A qualified art psychotherapist, Rubbena studied Fine Art at St Martins and Surrey and has exhibited and enjoyed wide exposure of her work in the UK and abroad.
The paintings of Marissa Mardon are inspired by her passion for photography. The resultant work focuses on small details and fleeting moments and form a unique visual diary of the world seen from her perspective. Graduating from London Metropolitan University with a first-class honours degree in Fine Art, Marissa has been exhibiting and garnering critical acclaim for her work ever since.
Peter Reeds is well known for his vibrant, spontaneous acrylic paintings of places and people, which explore both the given subject matter and the sensuality of paint. Since graduating from The Medway College of Art in 1968 Peter has enjoyed a diverse career and travelled extensively - experiences that have helped shape his outlook as an artist. He lives and works in Medway, Kent.
Christopher Sacre’s epiphany as an artist arrived when he discovered a happy marriage between condoms and plaster, resulting in the migratory exhibition, ‘See what this man gave birth to after using 2000 condoms in 22 days’. In ‘FOUR’ he further explores the lines, forms and compositions of his condom sculptures in new 2D works on paper. Christopher studied Fine Art Sculpture at Wolverhampton School of Art and Design and works from his studio in Chatham, Kent.
