RED Online Exhibition
Welcome to the RED Exhibition that explores the theme of the colour of the same name. A colour which is synonymous with so many things in so many cultures and presents a unique creative challenge to explore and identify themes, subjects and relationships with this fundamental colour.
With submissions from local, national, and international artists this show presents a range of work from artists at all stages of their careers. With over 80 works from over 40 artists we hope this exhibition celebrates and challenges the ideas and meanings associated with the colour red.

I am a full time artist from Northampton with a studio in Northampton. In 2010 I gained a first class BA (Hons) Degree in Fine Art Painting, in 2011 I gained an MA in Fine Art.
The process of transforming paint into images compels and challenges me. Painting fills me with a sense of well-being, a satisfying way to translate visual ideas into physical reality.
My work focusses on flowers, they show everything from the seeds, stem, bud, and blossom, then returning to the earth to begin a new cycle of birth-life-death. I love the endless variety of patterns, shapes, diversity and the intense colours of flowers.
I am an Intermedia & [Livestream] performance artist interested in the intersection between live performance and technology. My work involves playfulness, experimentation, and contrasts between the serious and non-serious. Liminality, the absurd and concepts of Myth play a role in my thinking process along with participation/collaboration. My performance and moving image work has been shown in Venice [Surfaces Festival] and [The Festival of Contemporary Art] in Athens for Whistle Project, in the USA at Ely Centre for Contemporary Art, Screen-print Biennial and the Trans-cultural Exchange in Boston, Turkey, Netherlands, England and Scotland. My intermedia videos cross between lo-fi and digital media work using video, image & sound distortion techniques like data-splicing.

Chloe Olivia Sansom
Chloe Olivia is an artist & illustrator based in Cambridgeshire. Her technique switches effortlessly from bold, simplistic, monochromatic lines, to bold, vibrant pools of acrylic ink and watercolour. Her subject matter typically depicts either edgy fashion magazine editorials or still life such as plants and flowers. Chloe graduated from the Univeristy of Northampton in 2012 before embarking on a career within the fashion industry. For years her artistic talent lay dormant until recently when she rekindled her love for painting and drawing.
‘Any scene, whether landscape, portrait, interior, whatever… I see as a pattern of flat shapes, each with a variety of tone, colour and texture, that fit together like a jigsaw… you just have to colour in the shapes you see in front of you… I wish…’ Conrad Johnson was born in South London in 1941. So, after training at Beckenham School of Art, Ravensbourne College of Art and Design, Goldsmiths College, and Leicester University many years ago, I have the paper qualifications to be an artist. I am still working on the practical side…
