SLIP N SLIDE
PRIVATE VIEW - 4 APRIL 2019 - 6.30 - 9.00
EXHIBITION OPEN - 5 APRIL - 17 MAY 2019
SLIP N SLIDE will be an exploration into the ways we inject play and humour into the relative mundanity of everyday suburban spaces. The works in the show would be a continuation of Lauri Hopkins' current practice, but with a particular emphasis on the architecture, shared rituals and nostalgia of a suburban eighties childhood the incidental poetry of an urban environment.
Lauri Hopkins (b.1984) is an based abstract artist who lives and works in Sussex. She has spent years amassing a collection of found, often defunct materials such as book covers, sweet wrappers and cardboard. These materials form a starting point and from there intuitive, architectural compositions build, and shed, and build again; the process never being linear. There is a lot of chance in Lauri's works. She works in groups. In fact, in groups of groups. Paintings affect collages, discarded materials are reconfigured, and masquerade as paintings.
