Title: Fifteen Landscapes from the Seascape Series
Dates: 11.11.13 – 16.11.13
Statement/Essay:
Adam Fenton brings a new collection of paintings to SIX in Bournemouth. The new work was created especially for this solo show.

Breaking from his normal practice of landscape painting, Fenton has turned his attention to the sea. Fenton is known for creating multiple images, creating space for discernment, discussion, and discovery. The work at SIX, Fifteen Paintings from the Seascape Series, may be his most ambitious to date. This will allow the artist to fill each wall of the gallery with subtly different painted images. The view will echo around you, wherever you stand in the space. This has long been one of Fenton’s goals.

SIX is delighted to be the place where an artist’s vision is realised and dramatically shared.

Fenton is a graduate of Goldsmiths, a London university known for producing innovative, imaginative artists. Other alumni include Tracey Emin, Damien Hirst, and Vivienne Westwood. Since his graduation in June of this year, Fenton has had seven shows in London and Warrington.

In having Adam Fenton create a solo show for SIX, the Boscombe gallery fulfills its mission of encouraging artists to create new work, building a forum for feedback, introducing artists to Bournemouth, and developing a strong, friendly community around art.

The show will run from Monday, 11th November until Saturday, 16th November. From Monday through Wednesday, the gallery opens by appointment only. A private viewing and artist talk will be held on Thursday from 6.30pm.

If you have questions or need images, write to Adam Fenton or contact the gallery directly.
