The Sunday Spot - Sarah Bowker-Jones
SUN 2, 9, 16 & 23 AUG 2015, 2-4PM, FREE, CLORE STUDIO
The Sunday Spot is an ongoing series of free, drop-in family activities which takes place every Sunday from 2-4pm, suitable for children aged 3-12 years.
Artist Sarah Bowker-Jones leads the sessions throughout August which will be energetic, playful and in a state of flux, allowing participants to embrace the 'wild something' that happens while making art.
Bowker-Jones' work is grounded in 2D mark-making through painting and drawing, and the material pleasure derived by transforming these notations into 3D.
Relishing a balance of fast, intuitive adaption to her environment along with a slow, expanding empirical knowledge, she has an experimental approach and allows both process and aesthetic judgement to create forms. Her works change, decay, collapse – or have a physical dependence on the structural support of their surroundings.
Sarah Bowker-Jones was born in north Wales. She studied BA Painting at Hull School of Art 1997-2000 and MFA Painting at The Slade School of Fine Art, 2006-2008. Recent exhibitions include You Never Fail Until You Stop Trying, York College Gallery, 2014, We Are Not Friends. Platform 1 Gallery, London, 2014, and «A«Tri»Lick», PEER, London, 2013. She has also co-curated exhibitions including Uncle Vern’s Dog, Gallery North, 2013, Newcastle.
