The Working Artist brings together seven young contemporary artists, all of which engage in disparate practices and media: painting, drawing, photography, artist books and sculpture.
The title, The Working Artist, suggests a dual connotation which interacts with the work on display. The phrase immediately conjures up the artist physically in the midst of creativity and production. Simultaneously it suggests that in order to satisfy the artists’ desire to create, and for their practices to continue to grow, they must support themselves by working a job. It is this necessity which brought the artists together, as they gravitated to the same place of work.
Time, as well as energy, is a crucial factor within the game of work and art. However, overall, passion is the key which drives each of these artists to continue to create.
