"In Bloom" is a joint exhibition by artists Jake Andrew and Tim Fowler.
In Bloom, is a harmonious synthesis of the works of two celebrated artists. Running from October 20th to November 5th, 2023, it unveils a vibrant tapestry of sensory experiences and offers an in-depth exploration of both artists’ use of hyper-saturation and contrast within the vast realm of gestural abstraction.
In Bloom invites audiences to delve into the distinctive yet harmonious subject matters of both artists. Though their themes might appear divergent, Andrew and Fowler’s works unify in evoking powerful emotional responses and depicting painting as a complex visual narrative. The exhibition marks a journey through myriad tales, emotions, and experiences, all woven into an abstracted tapestry of artistic expression.
Centred around the unique interplay of colour and sound, In Bloom beckons audiences to delve into the vivid palettes and innovative methods employed in their studio practice by both artists. With Tim Fowler's distinct focus on the colour field and Jake Andrew’s synesthetic exploration of how audio stimuli manifest as colour, texture, and movement, the exhibit is a vibrant dialogue of artistry.
While Fowler’s works burst with bright, intense hues, Andrew offers a physical immersion into the junction of sound and colour. The subject matter transcends into the abstract, inviting viewers to seek more than just literal representation.
For this occasion, the artists have chosen a more intimate scale for their works, enabling them to narrate multifaceted stories and offer a diverse selection of experiences. The exhibition will also feature larger pieces, providing a comprehensive insight into their individual and collective artistic journeys. In Bloom is an exploration of both artists' ability to elicit emotional responses through their art, allowing the audience to engage with each piece, unravelling the intricate layers of emotion and narrative embedded within each piece and experiencing the harmonious convergence of two distinctive artistic styles.
