CONFLUENCE is a group exhibition of new paintings and sculpture by ten Sheffield- based contemporary artists: Richard Bartle, Anthony Bennett, Al Daw, Paul Evans, Seiko Kinoshita, Mandy Payne, Sarah Villeneau, Joanna Whittle, Myfanwy Williams and Sean Williams.
Over the coming year, Stephen Carley’s Sheffield studio will be the context for a variety of monthly exhibitions or ‘visual trials’.
Sometimes existing artefacts will simply be exhibited. Maybes the space will be adapted or changed in some way or used for collaborative ventures. Guest curators could even be invited.
The bottom line is to concentrate fully on process, ideas, context and communication with an audience and build up a coherent body of work filtered by the structure of 12X12 and the monthly interaction with an audience.
