Florence Trust 2012 Exhibition

Posted in Florence Trust by Andy Wicks on 2 July, 2012

This years Florence Trust artists have their exhibition opening this week which marks the end of their year spent at St Saviours. The private view is the same night as my WW Gallery Patio Project opening which had left me in a tricky position of trying to be in two places at once, thankfully we’ve decided to have my opening from 6-7pm with the viewing party then going on mass to the Florence Trust. Following my brilliant time at the Florence Trust (it was my turn this time last year) I can highly recommend the summer show as a place to discover dynamic and engaging work in a stunning grade one listed building.


Florence Trust 2012 Winter Open

Posted in Artists, Florence Trust by Andy Wicks on 29 January, 2012

Its been 6 months since I finished my residency at the Florence Trust and this Friday sees the first opportunity for this years artists to show their work to the masses. I’ve met a number of FT 2012 artists and can’t wait to go back to see the place and catch up with artists old and new. If you’ve not been I highly recommend a visit to this stunning building in a leafy part of north London. I recently met this years Florence Trust Axis Bursary artist Hanae Utamura at the London Art fair where she described how she’s used her studio as a large evolving installation rendered in layers of paint and plastic. While Ben Woodeson will no doubt be challenging health and safety regs in a new and nerve inducing way. Not to be missed.
