Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortals ever dared to dream before; The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe
Featuring 13 artists from around the globe, ranging from the newly graduated to the more firmly established; Studio 106 Art Gallery is delighted to announce an Open Entry Exhibition; U-N-F-O-R-E-S-E-E-N? You Tell Us!
The artists all explored the theme of the Unforeseen, the resulting show displays their differing interpretations of the hidden, secretive nature of people, things in nature and the physical world that we do not see, and what is neither obvious nor planned. The exhibition features sculpture, paintings with oil, acrylic, resin and gloss, photography, video installation, digital prints and ink.

Focusing on researching and developing collaborative processes intrinsic to art-making, generating dialogues across: generations, cultures, and the bond between art and the audience, Studio 106 Art Gallery programmes Live Art, exhibitions, screenings, forums, artists’ talks and workshops.
Joanne Brennan’s work is an exploration into the ways materials can capture and embody the previously hidden qualities of light. She projects light through material and takes an image of the resulting projection which is then digitally reproduced; she calls this ‘drawing with light’.
Pato Bosich was born in Chile, but left for Europe in 1997. He has lived and worked in Germany, parts of central and Eastern Europe, before settling in London in 2000. He has served as the artist in Residence in The Muse Gallery, London and The Museum of Modern Art, Chiloe, Chile. He exhibits his work globally. His paintings resist easy readings, instead convey mystery and tension, as the viewer is denied the whole story and can only see a snapshot of psychological drama without the proper context.

Luke Beachey was born in Cardiff and recently graduated from Brighton University. He has participated in several group shows in Brighton and Lewes. His work is concerned with disembodied erotic entropy and the removal of social conventions and a person’s regression to a primitive being.
Mirjana Marsenic is a Montenegrin artist, currently living and studying for her MA in Pont-Aven, France. Amongst other awards, she was received the ZAMTES institute of International Relations and Corporation Best Student Award in 2009.

Madeleine Burt lives and works in Nottingham, she regularly exhibits nationally and internationally, her most recent shows have been in Berlin and London. She is artist in residence at Nottingham Trent University. Her work explores themes of separation, loss and preservation.
