Spatial and Social Politics

BY RIC WARREN
@ VOL 27 ON APR 12, 2016

Ric Warren shares on the geometric abstraction and the images that influence his aesthetic and current studio work. In a shift from architectural references, his studio work is currently experimenting with the motifs of casual sportswear as social and territorial signifier.

With a central focus on spatial and social politics, Ric Warren’s artworks are predominantly sculptural and sculptural installation. His work considers how our manmade surroundings have symbolic meaning beyond their basic functions and is influenced by the materials, forms and experiences of his urban surroundings, distilled through minimalist artistic sensibilities.

Here, Just Now

BY DEUCE DEUCE
@ VOL 27 ON APR 12, 2016

Deuce Deuce is a nomadic curatorial collaboration between Elizabeth Murphy and Amy Jones, occupying retail and exhibition formats to explore the cross-over between art, apparel and the absorption of sub-culture into the mainstream. 

Deuce Deuce is keen to support emerging practise, often working with recent graduates giving them their first commissioning opportunity. For HERE we have merged this ethos to include more established practises, giving these artists a space to explore an alternate aspect to there making. Having a print basis in the practise is not a pre-requisite for us when approaching practitioners, we know this project is unusual so we work closely with the selected artists to adapt and develop ideas for production.
