Drystone Chambers support emerging artists
8 September 2017
As part of our corporate responsibility programme, Drystone Chambers is delighted to announce our partnership with Little Van Gogh Gallery. The aim of this partnership is to assist emerging artists by exhibiting artwork in Chambers. Every two months a different emerging artist will be given the opportunity to place their work in our communal areas, providing a platform for their art to be seen by a wider audience.
We will be exhibiting a range of exciting styles over the coming months throughout our meeting rooms and reception areas. The paintings will be available to buy and the changing nature of the exhibitions will be able to cater for a range of tastes. It will also provide the opportunity for staff and visitors to enjoy gallery quality art at work.
Chloé Adams (Director of Little Van Gogh) says, “We are delighted to be showcasing our artists with Drystone Chambers. They have embraced supporting the Arts wholeheartedly and artwork is going to look fantastic in the space.”
The first artist to be exhibited at Drystone Chambers is Oliver Bloom.
Born in London, Oliver continues to live and work from the UK’s capital. Though he lives in an urban environment, he was educated on a farming school which gave him a strong connection to rural life.
As a sculptor as well as a painter, Oliver takes a very three dimensional approach to painting. His work here follows a still life theme, depicting everyday objects in semi abstract form. Influenced by both the natural and urban world, he brings together elements from each to make clever, balanced compositions. Mood is very important to Oliver and he uses various shades of one colour to activate certain areas of the canvas.
