Debased, the artists: Megan Pickering, Bruce Lovelock, Rosso….

debased_sept2016Debased, the latest Cultivate group show, opens at BSMT Space gallery over in Dalston (London N16), this coming Thursday….

“This is about taking art and artists out of those comfortable little boxes that the London art scene appears to need, mixing things up, messing with the rules – a wallpaper printer (currently hanging in the V&A), alongside a street artist currently painting East London walls, a London dress-maker currently raging against London Fashion week, a contemporary painter currently exploring the view found through a circle, a performance artist freshly returned from her LA performance next to a pro-active artist still questioning the destruction of the mining communities”…

Megan Pickering is one of the artists joining us for Debased, here’s a small Organ piece from January, Megan makes art that matters, art that has something to say, do check out more and explore that piece of video art on the Organ page….

Over the next couple of days we shall have tastes of all the artists involved in Debased.  We’re excited about the mix of artists we have in this show. Emma and I spend ages debating who to invite, we’re out at shows all the time, we’re watching websites all the time, trading information, opinion, a lot of work goes in it to these Cultivate show, we don’t just pick names out of a hat…. …
.
We always enjoy having Bruce Lovelock involved, we never quite know what to expect, it might be a mouse trap or a very painterly piece of his mind, it could well be anything, always rewarding, never obvious, a little more depth than most…

“I imagine him as one of those artists who are discovered later on in life with hundreds of works stored away…I like his work, there is a dark strange edge there, I don’t see anything else out there like his work. It poses questions to me, rather than handing it all on a plate I do ‘feel’ from Bruce’s work…”

Rosso is an artist who’s been building quite a reputation or herself in recent time. She’s first appeared at Cultivate when Emma invited her to take par in an International Women’s day wall of work down in Vyner Street a couple of years ago, since them the London-based Italian painted has taken part in a number of Cultivate shows. There’s a piece over on the Organ pages from back in late April of this year over on the Organ pages
