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.
Corby & Migration
18th - 28th Ocotber 2017
A project highlighting the importance of the urban woodlands in Corby, the birds that pass through them and the fluctuating populations of species.
Commissioned by Deep Roots Tall Trees with Amanda Drage, Matt Merritt and Warren Shaw curated by Rosalind Stoddart.
The theme ‘Corby and Migration’ will examine the birds that migrate through the town’s woodlands (as well as the indigenous species that live there) and how they are affected by the changes in the town as Corby continues to grow and develop.
