Angel 10 / Technicolour Hop
An exhibition of mixed media work by Siobhan Belingy and Rhiannon Davies
7th – 13th September 2016
Private View: Tuesday 6th September 6 – 9pm
Siobhan Belingy’s practice investigates collage in the extended form. She selects images from newspapers, books, magazines and video clips. Using collage techniques she cuts out these visual representations of the world then reconfigures them into something surreal and Dadaist in order to question ‘rational’ life. Belingy was born in Middlesex, UK. She studied at Central Saint Martins in London, graduating in 2015. She currently lives and works in London. http://www.siobhanbelingy.com/
Rhiannon Davies is noted for her manipulation of texture and colour within a fine art approach to fashion and textile design. Her obsession with vividly contrasting colour combinations began with the variety of garments she discovered in local vintage markets and charity shops throughout her childhood. Her own personal style later fused into her work. The colour choices Davies selects for each project vary, but are all commonly a reaction to what she feels fulfils her eye – employing colour without any figurative context. Instead she uses shape and imagery within the textile to convey meaning. Davies was born in Somerset in 1997 and moved to London last year to study fashion. This September she will be progressing onto BA Honours in Fashion Design with Knitwear at Central Saint Martins.
