Art double bill opens this Friday

It is a double header of art events this Friday as both Supercollider and FYC are opening new shows to the public: Souls by Sam Shendi and Andrew Maughan‘s Chicken Town.

FYC Gallery will be presenting another show curated by Venn Projects. This time around the now traditional white cube space will be exhibiting work from the internationally renown artist Sam Shendi.

Shendi is a member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors and winner of the prestigious 108 Public Art Award. A brightly coloured collection of his crushed metal sculptures which explore the complexities of the human form and the human condition will be displayed in Souls. The precise environs of the FYC gallery space will be complimented by the formal nature of the sculptures, whose presentation arrayed on plinths in the traditional manner will be one of the high points of the Venn Projects curatorial steering of the gallery.

The private view is Friday 9 May from 6 to 8pm.  This timing will allow viewers to also visit Supercollider, where Andrew Maughan’s Chicken Town opens on the same evening.

Maughan’s paintings are a starkly paired down exploration of colour and shape. The Cookson Street gallery space will be presenting Maughan’s latest body of work that promises to be both challenging and yet filled with chickens. Supercollider’s commitment to programming the highest levels of contemporary art work continues. I have seen the work and it is more than worth the visit.

Another double bill evening of exciting and challenging art is ahead this Friday, so keep it clear in your diary. Souls by Sam Shendi runs from 9 May to 6 June. Andrew Maughan’s Chicken Town runs from 9 to 31 May
