How Long Will This Last? by Katie Mullender

How Long Will This Last? is a new exhi­bi­tion of paint­ings by RIPE grad­u­ate and artist Katie Mullender.

Visit our latest RIPE exhibition, How Long Will This Last? by RIPE graduate and artist Katie Mullender.

Katie’s paintings are textured and colourful. She is interested in physical, tangible objects and experiences that only exist IRL. Scenes from fruit markets and museums are created by layering acrylic paint, emulsion, oil pastels, ink and paper collage.

“The works are autobiographical moments from throughout the pandemic, drawing on shared experiences, quiet moments and relationships with space. The marks in the paper works are spontaneous and raw, much like the scenes being portrayed, and the brightly coloured environments epitomize a symbiotic relationship between the figures and their surroundings. This body of work is a document of everyday life during a time where life itself has changed so dramatically.”

The exhibition is on display in the windows of the Hidden Wardrobe on Old Northam Road from Friday 22nd April until Sunday 29th May.
