Opening Night: Friday 23rd February, 6-9pm
Joshua Browitt / Philip Clarke / Martin Clarkson / Sarah Cunningham / Adam Waghorne

Surface Gallery is delighted to present the first in a series of exhibitions, STRATA: 1.  

This is STRATA: a collective of five Loughborough Fine Art graduates engaging with - and pushing the boundaries of – the raw medium of paint. STRATA:1 captures the ‘unseen’ and the ephemeral in nature, the environment, and the human condition through the driving force of paint. These artists are inspired by the luminous qualities of colour; through varying densities of paint and chroma, their paintings depict landscape and form in both their subtlety and their vibrancy.  

The exhibition provides a unique glimpse into the creative processes of these painters and their own individual practices, and how their collaborative ideas and painterly investigations have resulted in the works presented in the gallery. This first in the series of STRATA collaborations is curated by Sarah Cunningham.  

The opening night will feature a set from Nottingham's ambient-rock trio, Eyre Llew. Nominated for two UMA Music awards, Eyre Llew have been described as “one of the most exciting bands in the UK right now”. Eyre Llew will be performing songs from their debut album, Atelo. This is truly an evening not to be missed.
