Project 202 - An art exchange
Oil on board, 14.8 x 21cm
I recently took part in an art exchange facilitated by Gallery202 creating two small morophological studies based around a single identical shape. One work was kept by Gallery202 and will become part of their standing collection and the other is exchanged.
The exchange is a continuing project and more information, photos and details can be found on the Gallery202 website here.

Sound Forms : Solo exhibition (2015)
Sonic and visual artist Warren Shaw presents his first solo show ‘Sound Forms’ from the 1st - 30th of April (Wed to Sat 11am - 4pm) at The Rooftop Gallery and Workshops in Corby, Northamptonshire. The solo show was awarded as part of the Watch This Space Prize from the annual Corby Open exhibition which Shaw was awarded in 2013.
In the exhibition Shaw combines thoughts on sound in visual, aural and literary forms creating diverse connections between the senses. Using a wide range of media from sculpture and installation, to painting and drawing, the works question our perceptions and encourage a new way of seeing and hearing.
Accrochage is a group exhibition showing recent works from graduating MA Fine Art students from Northampton University alongside connected artists presented and sponsored by Gallery202 at Albus3 Arts in Northampton from the 3rd - 13th of May 2016.
Accrochage has a literal translation of collision and when considering a group show by contemporary artists the notion of collision is ever present in the arrangement of such diverse artistic practice. Not to say that this is a themed exhibition but that it is an action that is happening, an anti-theme, that reveals the coming together of individual artistic exploration and experimentation.
The works themselves explore a whole spectrum of experimental subject matter. Some consider notions of transcendence and materiality taking materials out of context and pushing our spatial relationship as a body with objects and placement. Others deal with delicate obsessions which react and flow through a connection with the context of site specific works. Meanwhile some works involve our relationship with time and the role that our senses play in discovering our own experience.
Current work: Sculpture Commission
Currently working on a private sculptural commission based on work from the seriers of sculptural sound forms 'Sonorous'.
In addition to this commission improvements are being made to the storage and workspace in my studio in Corby at the Rooftop Arts Center with new shelving and work storage space being built.
