Lynne Bingham and Carly Ralph are local artists, working independently of each other, whose practices in mixed media have one fundamental aspect in common: they both find inspiration in ‘second use’ objects and materials which are selected and gathered from sources in everyday life, for studio use.
This exhibition celebrates their differences of approach, one tending towards the narrative and the figurative, the other towards tactile qualities of erosion and abstraction.
Photohastings and Brighton Photo Fringe present Not the Final Major Project, a collaborative exhibition as part of a season celebrating photographic practice throughout the South East.
Inspired by Brighton Photo Fringe’s mission Developing New Ways of Seeing, this group show brings together some of the best emerging talent from fine art and photography degree courses around the country, to showcase the latest contemporary themes of photography. Recent graduates and early career artists have been selected due to their engagement with the many conceptual, aesthetic and technological possibilities of photography.
Rejecting the daunting ‘finality’ attached to leaving University, this exhibition is a platform to encourage further exploration of the medium and to continue exhibiting beyond the graduate show.
