Bridget Davies, who’s interview follows below, drew us in with her elegant and evocative ink works of glamorous women, which in many ways feel reminiscent of another era.

Blain Southern Showcases Their Behind-the-Scenes Talent with ‘Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain’

Consisting of 12 diverse artworks by 9 different artists, ‘Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain‘ is Blain Southern‘s summer tribute to its’ staff, “celebrating the wealth of emerging artistic talent within the gallery.” Benjamin BrettMark Couzens, Jamie George, Jonny Green, Benjamin Jamie, Deklan Kilfeather, Jonathan Kipps, Leon Matis Robin Monies and Ian Segrave all work for Blain Southern, as it were, behind the curtain; this show gives them a space to shine as artists in their own right.

Just downstairs from the gallery’s current Tony Cragg-curated ‘Andreas Schmitten, Gereon Lepper and Mathias Lanfer‘ you’ll find #BehindTheCurtain. The PV took place last evening, Tuesday 5th October, and was rightfully packed with a crowd of people, sipping icy Asahi and admiring the breadth of work on show, including painting, sculpture, textiles, conceptual pieces and illustration.

My personal favourite work of the exhibition is the sculpture. Entitled ‘Truss,‘ this large scale piece by Jonathan Kipps is made of burnt wood and resembles a sort of complex ladder. It takes command of the room and adds an exciting element as well, being the only non-hanging artwork on view.
