Collectible – Zeitgeist Art Projects 18 – 28th April

Posted in Exhibitions by Andy Wicks on 9 April, 2012

I have a couple of new paintings in this exhibition which also features a whole heap of artists doing interesting things right now. My contributions are part of what will now be known as the ‘Hell and High Water’ series, an expanded body of work continuing the format of my 2011’s piece Irene (below). The images of Hell and High Water come from what were initially my photographic outtakes from Thames walk, structures which I discovered at high tide when the water level obscured the majority of its form. When sorting through these images I realized the abstraction caused by the tide changed the previously functional structures into odd legless stumps, seemingly no longer rooted to the bank but floating just proud of the surface.

Irene (Hell and High Water), 2011, Oil on canvas,
25.5 x 20.5 cm

A high-profile inaugural exhibition of 67 promising, mid-career and established International Zeitgeist artists from across all disciplines; including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture and print from £50-£500. These artists in an act of generosity and accessibility have made their works available for affordable prices so that art collectors old and new are able to invest in some of the most promising and established collectible artists whom normally usually sell upwards of £500.
