14th May – 3rd July 2016
Emily Binks, Paul Corbett, Sophie Ormerod, Jonathan H S Ross
This group exhibition of new artwork commissioned by Grampian Hospitals Art Trust for The Suttie Arts Space brings together the work of four exciting young artists from the UK and Northern Ireland.
Emily Binks graduated with a BA Hons Sculpture from Edinburgh College of Art in 2015. She was the recipient of the 2016 Glenfiddich New Contemporaries Residency Prize, creates ambitious, large scale works – often in series – informed by human instinct and her strong personal interests in the outside world and survival skills.
Paul Corbett graduated with a BA Hons Fine Art from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2013. His work examines minimalist ideals of industrial material and commercial colour as well as popular subject matter, exploring the nature of the art object through practical elements such as material, scale, symmetry, situ, colour and function.
Sophie Ormerod is from Hazlehead in Aberdeen and studied BA Hons Painting at Gray’s School of Art and recently completed an MFA Painting at The Slade School of Fine Art, London. Her paintings explore placement of colour and the gaps, spaces and relationships that exist in between. Her current studio practice investigates the possibilities of paint as a material and an energy and pace that can be achieved in its application.
Jonathan H.S. Ross studied at the University of Ulster, where he gained a BA Honours in Fine and Applied Art and is now studying a Masters at IADT, Dun Laoghaire. His current work is developed through an inter-disciplinary inquiry, informed by research into behavioural economics, restoration and conservation, architecture, public space and methodologies of manufacturing processes.
