After 2 successful solo exhibitions, Slaves Guitarist, Laurie Vincent is continuing to forge his path in the art world with Feels Like Forever Ago, a joint exhibition with friend and collaborator, Daisy Parris.
The pair met in 2010 when they were both studying at UCA Rochester and then reconnected 5 years later when they began to share a studio space. This marked the start of a regular, collaborative relationship which continues today, with the pair meeting up to create pieces between Laurie’s work with Slaves and Daisy’s work as an internationally exhibited artist.
Feels Like Forever Ago, is the pair’s first joint exhibition where they’ll be sharing their collaborative work with the public. The pieces on display will range from their early collaborations, which drew inspiration from the post-punk era’s love of collage, to a new body of work that has been created specifically for the show.
Over the years the pair have developed a more focused and methodological approach to collaboration, working from preparatory drawings and creating the pieces in series. The work had a powerful energy, juxtaposing comforting pastel shades with jagged and aggrieve imagery.
While the earlier work on display still bears the creative signatures of two distinct artists working together, the contemporary pieces have the look of coming from a singular mind as Laurie and Daisy has learnt to create a third artistic voice, separate from their individual work.
Feels Like Forever will open on the 14th of December at Rochester Art Gallery and Craft Case, and will run until the 23rd February 2019 and admission will be free. There will be a private viewing on the evening of the 13th December between 18.30 and 21.00.
