Fifty Two

Benjamin Kelly

A year in the work of an artist and his relationship to a creative community, Fifty Two charts the practice of graphic artist Benjamin Kelly who, before the 14th February 2018, had never participated in a life drawing class.

Launch: Thursday 4th April, 7-10pm, free entry

Open daily until 19th April, 9am-5pm, free entry

Displayed in chronological order, the exhibition explores the progress, set-backs, and developments of the artist over 52 weeks, with each piece using the human form as the inspiration for a body of work that tries to push the artist through his own inhibitions and self-doubts. The resulting output highlights the importance of low-cost, community-run arts classes in facilitating the development of young and emerging artists, acting not only as a creative outlet, but also as an emotional outlet and support system.

The Hackney Wick Life Drawing community allowed Benjamin to develop his practice as he stripped the human form down into bold, clean lines, reconstituting the body as an abstract form to be incorporated into his studio practice. The pieces of work in this exhibition will represent the merging of the sketches produced in class with the artist’s background in graphic design, resulting in angular representations of the human body depicted with a minimalistic expression of colour and shape.

Benjamin is a Hackney Wick based artist from the north of England who works from life in pencil, charcoal, and chalk and then uses these figurative studies in his studio practice to produce graphic abstractions.

Curated by Hannah Healey and Ben Wakeling.
