Somerset based artist and Falmouth BA(Hons) Fine Art graduate Michael Cox will soon be exhibiting ‘New Works‘ at Art Represent, London, E2 0JD.  Opening from 28 October until 1 November Michael will be collaborating with another graduate artist, James Briggs.

During Michael’s third year at Falmouth, he was selected for Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2016.  As part of the touring exhibition Michael’s work has already been exhibited at the launch exhibition at Bluecoat, Liverpool, forming part of the Liverpool Biennial.

Following the success at Liverpool, Bloomberg New Contemporaries featuring Michael’s piece ‘De Beauvoir, 2015‘ will move on to London, exhibiting at the ICA from 23 November 2016 until 22 January 2017.

Michael has previously exhibited in London, most recently as part of a curated show selected by critic and curator Sacha Craddock and Falmouth Associate Lecturer Jesse Leroy Smith.  Selected artists were chosen from the BA(Hons) Fine Art final year student cohort and the exhibition took place at the Underdog Gallery, London in July 2016.

Michael’s work has also been featured recently as part of a 2016 graduate piece for the ‘It’s Nice That‘ platform, which also featured him six months before he completed his studies at Falmouth (Here).  Michael discusses his Somerset countryside childhood and the influences this has had on his urban style of painting, the highlights of studying the BA(Hons) in Fine Art at Falmouth University and his future plans.

Falmouth Fine Art London 2016

Critic and curator Sacha Craddock selected from Falmouth’s BA(Hons) Fine Art degree shows 20 artists to exhibit at Falmouth Fine Art London 2016 at Underdog Art Gallery, 1 – 3rd July 2016

Max Aspin Radford | Jamie Battersby | Ed Burkes | Ella Caie | Ed Carter | Finbar Conran | Michael Cox | Rob Davis | Joe Fenwick-Wilson | Kerry Foster | Freya Goodwin | Amy Jefferies | Zoë Pearce | Calum Rees-Gildea | Jess Russell | George Stone | Amelia Tinton | Tabitha Tohill Reid | Matthew Vaughan | Sandi Williams | Mara Zaice

The London show case exhibition, now in its fourth year, was a great success. The gallery was set in a vibrant part of the city, within walking distance of Tate Modern, Borough Market and White Cube in Bermondsey. It drew new audiences through a wide range of passers-by.

The work selected sat in a rather Gothic setting under an old railway arch, with dripping painted grey walls and a range of large sofas and chairs. This didn’t detract from the artwork, but provided a new narrative for the work to respond to. George Stone and Tabitha Tohill Reid’s work sat in a large bathroom area adjacent to the main exhibition room breathing life into an uncomfortable space. The artwork selected had a powerful presence in the space.

Artist Graham Gussin met the selected artists in the gallery space to lead a group critique. This was a valuable experience, enabling our recent graduates to participate in a challenging discussion about their work. The short but focused opportunity that the London showcase provides has been met with enthusiasm by all involved, including the staff team who thoroughly enjoy spending time in settings such as this with our most recent completing cohort of fine artists.
