Thames-Side Studios Viewing Room

Ashley Loxton
Crowd Pleaser

Exhibition Dates: 7-22 September 2019
Preview: Saturday 7 September, 6-9pm

Ashley Loxton (Unit 5 Studio 310) presents works from past and present- displaying paintings, reconfigured found image and ephemera.

Ambiguous abstract pieces, both experimental and considered, sit alongside collections and other reworked material, to form part of a rolling progression. Whilst the main intention of a solo show is to showcase a selection of work in a space, this marker point prompts the artist to critique and post-rationalise. Ashley considers the premise that [subconsciously] an audience or platform of viewers are always present, and he reflects on the influence that this has on his working process.

Ashley builds on elements of inadvertence to navigate the course of his work. He contrasts found material from books and billboards, with the fluidity of paint; orchestrating a playful imbalance between archive and invention, image and manipulation, and nostalgia. Follow Ashley on Instagram here
