INTERFERENCE: Richard Higlett
Saturday 7 March - Sunday 15, 2015


Artists in this exhibition: Richard Higlett


INTERFERENCE: Richard Higlett

Gallery

Born on New Year’s Eve 1869, Henri-Émile-Benoît Matisse was 44 at the outbreak of the First World War. While physically fit and willing to fight for his beloved France, the painter was told he was too old for action. To support those fighting he decided to buy 600 francs worth of bread every month and post it to the front.

This anecdote from the life of one of the twentieth century’s greatest artists became the starting point for the next project in the INTERFERENCE programme. Chapter studio resident, Richard Higlett will be looking at relative values through the creation of a limited number of ceramic baguettes which will be sold to support charities helping the homeless. These will feature as part of a larger installation in the space that was previously the gallery shop.

Richard Higlett

Richard Higlett works across a range of art forms as he believes the idea should dictate the mode in which it is represented. He has shown work throughout the UK and internationally in Montreal, Bruno, New York and Venice, Italy. In 2013, he received a Creative Wales Award from the Arts Council of Wales.
