FLUX Exhibition at The Chelsea College of Art 11th – 15th April 2018

The Cookhouse Gallery, The Triangle Space and the Rootstein Parade Ground (facing Tate Britain)

FLUX Exhibition is a ground breaking art event – a collection of the most dynamic painters, sculptors and performance artists which represents an alternative way to encounter today’s best new art.

FLUX has established itself as the platform for contemporary artists to be discovered and to be part of an exceptional, unconventional art event. Hosted by Chelsea College of Arts in London and curated by Lisa Gray, the founder of FLUX, this fifth, much anticipated edition of FLUX brings 90 artists to the fore. Gray has hand selected the very best emerging and established artists for a five-day interactive event.

FLUX opening party comes alive with musical guests, performance art and site specific installations which complement the work and bring a new experimental approach to the exhibition.

The show represents a rare opportunity to gain access to a diverse group of gifted artists, on the path to being the big names of tomorrow, showcasing international talent in a collaborative, curated show. FLUX celebrates dynamic, emerging artists on the precipice of wider accolade and fame.

Founder Lisa Gray has a degree in Business and Economics and an 18 year career as an analyst, Gray brings together her business mind and love of art to create successful exhibitions and projects for all artists involved.

The final line up of artists and performers is still being selected

Performance artists have previously included Cheddar Gorgeous, Anna Phylactic and Liquorice Black the internationally known members of the gender fluid drag group ‘Family Gorgeous’.

Marnie Scarlet an underground sensation and one of the top names in fetish performance.

AbNorMalik is joining us in some  wonderfully strange form.  He is an internationally touring actor and Mime artist. The cartoonesque characters he designs, creates and performs are reminiscent of the darkly humorous illustrations of Edward Gorey with a quirky commedia dell’arte flavour and a nod to Neil Gaiman’s ‘Sandman’.

The exhibition will also be featuring a unique, Mini-Masterpiece wall where smaller artworks by FLUX artists can be purchased for £300 or less. A great way for a new collector to invest in art at a fraction of the price of artists’ normal sized works.

Artists have Included:

Tina Spratt whose paintings are focused on the female form and are glimpses of everyday intimacy, she is interested in capturing that fleeting time when a person is unaware of being observed.  Hoping to portray a sense of ambiguity for the viewer to arrive at their own conclusions and evoke an emotional connection with the model.

Tomas Harker is an emerging artist featured in collections worldwide and garnering increasing international interest. He has previously been included in an exhibition at the Tate Modern, London and has recently had two hugely successful solo shows. He has received recognition from esteemed critic the late Brian Sewell and gained glowing appraisals from many publications such as Vogue Magazine.

He Obtained his photographic diploma at RACC in Richmond upon Thames in 2011, however, he is mainly a self-taught photographer, continuously experimenting and discovering new ways of expression. He is attracted to non-obviousness, light and shadow play, movement, reflection, geometry and extreme minimalism and is a member of Free Painters and Sculptors collective.  His work has been featured and bought by some of the world’s leading architects and interior designers, including Candy & Candy and a high profile commission for Qatari Headquarters in London’s Mayfair.
