CLUSTER: BENJAMIN BRIDGES, AARON MCELROY, KASPER PINCIS
11 July - 2 August 2013
Benjamin Bridges was born in Leeds and is now based in London where he graduated with a first class BA (hons) degree in fine art painting from Wimbledon in 2010. In 2009 he was shortlisted for the Prunella Clough Painting Prize and took part in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2008 and 2012. In February 2013 he showed a new photographic installation in Urban | Photography Exhibition at Marburae Gallery (Cheshire), and in March had a second solo show at ARTTRA (Amsterdam).
NY-based photographer Aaron McElroy has been exploring details of the female body and views of American suburbia in the black&white series Traces and his more recent colour prints. He graduated from the New England School of photography in 2007 and was included in the Humble Arts Foundation Collector's Guide to New Art Photography (Vol. 2) in 2010.
Kasper Pincis graduated from Goldsmiths College before studying at the Royal Academy Schools. His fascination with stories of heroic expeditions is the inception to a large part of his work, he says of his practice that it is more driven by a literary impulse rather than a purely visual one. Experimenting with various media including typewriters, collage and woodcut, Kasper combines a romantic impulse with a craftsman's skill. He was shortlisted for the 2012 Jerwood Drawing Prize and selected for The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2012 and 2013.
