Artists Exhibiting At Our Art Fair
Here you can find information of each artist who will be showing at the next Roy’s Art Fair including exhibitions, achievements and sample works.
Since graduating from Falmouth University, William Claridge has maintained a grasp on the art industry and has continued to develop his knowledge and experience through internships and networking. He is currently working as Manager for Roy’s Art Fair as well as working on his own artistic practice.
Painting, Installation, Photography/video and performance are a few of the disciplines and mediums in which Claridge works freely in interpretation and experimentation. His biggest inspiration is travel and the poetics of everyday life. Claridge’s primary ambition is to create art that evokes a perceptive change in people. To create an insight into ‘the everyday’ by presenting a montage of mundane events, to capture moments of raw life as it occurs and relay it back into a space.
Cultural Landscapes :
This series explores Claridge’s perspective from different cultural settings around Europe, Africa and India. All paintings in this series are inspiration taken from his travels and deliver an insight into an ever-changing landscape of form and colour. Each painting, although understood by the artist as a specific location, can be open to interpretation with its impressionist style.
The Poetics of The Everyday :
'Poetics of The Everyday' explores the mundane banality of everyday life. The hybrid work contrasts this ideal with a bright, explosive cornucopia of colour. By obscuring aspects of the photograph, we, the viewer, are consciously forced to complete the narrative. The work aims to provoke the audience with both frustration and intrigue whilst being faced with an aesthetically pleasing image.
