elysiumgallery High Street Studios
Seren Oakley has been in residence at the IS THIS/THIS IS…. Project space throughout August
Although having only just completed her A-Levels and about to embark on a foundation course at Llyn-y-Bryn college Swansea later this year, Seren is a committed member of the Swansea arts scene, a prolific painter, musician and an important part of the elysium gallery exhibitions team.
‘I don’t really feel i have found a favourite medium to paint in at this moment but I usually use acrylics. I like to paint portraits and figure studies but really wanted to use my time in the project space to experiment and explore painting a lot more within figure depiction and how an artists depicts ones self’ in paint.
Situated in the elysiumgallery High Street studios, the IS THIS/THIS IS test-bed space is primarily used by residency artists and the elysiumgallery studios community. The aim is to enable artists to work and experiment towards creating new work in an environment outside of their usual studio practice in preparation for critical discussions within the group. The space enables artists to develop, to build, to take risks, to test and to invite peers to see the work in progress.
Only members of elysiumgallery studios and guests are invited to these group discussions. Bring a bottle!
