OutWith at Art Exchange Essex University

OutWith, with Roxy Walsh, is at Art Exchange at the University of Essex from January 12 to February 14 2015. It is the fifth exhibition of our collaborative project and follows on from Annunciation at the MAC in Belfast in 2014 and Dependent Rational Animals at Towner in Eastbourne.

A catalogue will accompany the exhibition, which includes a text by George Vasey.

For more information about the gallery and opening times and directions, see Art Exchange.


The sculptures are made from simple base materials: engineering bricks, plaster bandage, tiles cut from bookbinding leather and timber latten – all chosen for their rudimentary qualities and potential for transformation. The engineering bricks are the same as those used to construct the imposing north and south towers on the university campus.




The flimsy branches of the tree intersect with Roxy’s watercolour wall drawings and panels.





A builder’s tub covered it with many layers of plaster bandage  is set beneath Roxy’s grey wall drawing and watercolour panels.




Windows in the gallery offer a view of Wivenhoe Park, home to many extraordinary oak trees, which lies just beyond the gallery.
