Preceded by a group visit to Jerwood Drawing Prize 2012 at the Lanchester Gallery. Meeting at Lanchester Gallery, the Hub, at 4pm.
The UK-wide World Domination Art Collective is now occupying the Coventry Artspace building with a roaming exhibition of contemporary drawing. Inspired by the Jerwood Drawing Prize 2012 exhibition at Coventry University’s dynamic new Lanchester Gallery, the collective has displayed works throughout the communal areas at Artspace which will be on show until March 30th.
To mark the end of the exhibition, an evening of exhibitions, talks and performances from Artspace and World Domination artists will take place in the Artspace building on March 30th from 5:15pm.
Meet with the artists from 4pm onwards at the Lanchester Gallery for a group visit to the Jerwood Drawing Prize exhibition before the event at Artspace at 5:15pm.
Graph: An exhibition of contemporary drawing is a roaming exhibition which began in Hastings in 2011 and is the brainchild of the artists at World Domination Art Collective (an independent UK-wide arts group that has exhibited in the U.K. and internationally). The exhibition has been created with the hope of inspiring many to take up the pencil or, if well acquainted with this piece of kit, other less traditional methods. Beginning at Hastings Arts Forum this collection will travel around the country displaying its members’ talents for an underestimated medium before returning south for a series of shows in London.
Coventry Artspace is one of the City’s leading visual arts organisations providing studios, affordable community room hire, artistic and outreach programmes and innovative collaborations.
The exhibition is available to view via appointment and at the public closing event starting at 5:15pm at Artspace on the 30th.

A group of Eastbourne, Brighton and Staffordshire based artists showing exciting 2D mixed media work

Lizzie Hingley ‘I work in pen and paint, I create chaotic and ordered patterns with both.’ Website:http://lizziehingley.co.uk/

Gwyddion Flint ‘My art explores the nature of truth and authenticity, the fluidity of fact and belief that shapes the world around ourselves. Asking questions of that world, such as: how does myth affect us in our contemporary lives?’ Website:https://minstral.wordpress.com/

Jennifer Sassi ‘I am a brighton based visual artist who uses a range of different materials to explore our human relationship with attraction and aesthetics. I use mechanisms such as nostalgia, ambiguity and raw image to create and question our humanistic attraction and aesthetic processes which are rooted within our consciousness and existence.’

Lisa Donovan ‘The main impetus of my work is the exploration of our relationship with technology; specifically modern technology.

I believe it is the confusion, the errors, the reluctance, and the creative whims that make up the poetic expressions of humanity. I hope to provide a punctum that causes a moment of self reflection within which we become aware of ourselves as human: as contrary and separate from the technological process and spectacle that surrounds us.

The works that make up the ‘Catagorial Novum’ series are representations of the theory of emergence wherein a simple action, much repeated, results in the creation of extremely complex systems. The human being, in this instance the artist, acts as an unseen organising force giving rhyme and reason to an otherwise mundane activity.’ Website: http://www.lisadonovan.info/
