Felixe Rives, 'The studio study'

At a time when borders are more present than ever, between countries, cities and people; the responsibility to overcome them rests at our feet. A Greater Space explores methods of physically reshaping the frame which merges the division of frame and artwork, allowing for a rethinking of the frame’s status. 

Working with empty spaces, Bradley invites the audience to look past the boundaries of the frame and into themselves, as well as the physical landscape. He depicts his landscapes as the antitheses of the natural world; structured and orderly to highlight the chaos of the external.

Felixe focuses on the artist’s experience in space, exploring painting as a window between the personal and the public. The painting becomes the frame of a truth, which allows the frame to hold meaning within itself. She plays with erasure as a performative action of painting to reveal the struggle of the artist within the art world.

This exhibition sees emerging artists Felixe Rives and Bradley Mendels exploring how to navigate and communicate these ideas to a wider audience.
