This Thursday Late event has been curated by award-winning artist Shen Xin, to coincide with her current exhibition 'Sliced Units' at CFCCA.
In Residence: 5 May to 1 July 2018
Open Studio: Thursday 28 June, 5.30pm - 8pm
Our current artist in residence has joined us from Birmingham City University for two months, where she is studying for her Masters in Contemporary Arts.
Keke's practice is mostly in oil painting, but she also experiments with different materials and found objects playing with different surfaces and textures.
Recently she has focused on capturing and exploring visually issues of mental health, and her artwork leans towards encouraging audiences to think in new ways about depression. This is a reflection of her personal life and people she has know with depression.
During her time with us Keke will be exploring her practice more and draw influence from her time in Manchester and at CFCCA, which will incorporate working alongside the artwork of Faye Wei Wei and Shen Xin. Her residency will culminate in an open studio event in which the public are invited to see what she has been working on. This takes place on Thursday 28 June from 5.30pm - 8pm.
