Artists in this exhibition: Stuart Bailes


Assembly: Art in the Bar - Stuart Bailes: Of Walking in Ice
Fri 23 July - Sun 26 Sept


Stuart Bailes' work is inspired by a deep fascination with the land. Using simple visual gestures, objects or captured moments, he explores how we understand our physical surroundings, and reflects on the discrepancies between true experiences and how they are ultimately perceived.

Of Walking in Ice is a series of photographs exploring the idea of experience as an imagined perception. The images are studio reconstructions of objects that Bailes has documented while walking in Wales, England, Scotland, Iceland and Norway. There are limitations to how a photograph can represent a physical experience; and Bailes addresses this by reducing the space within the images to prompt you to reexamine what you may or may not know.


Biography:
Stuart Bailes was born in 1985 in Bath and graduated from the University of Wales, Newport in 2007. He is based in London and has just completed his MA in Photography at the Royal College of Art.

In 2009 he was selected as Magenta Foundation’s Flashforward09 UK winner resulting in an international touring group show. He has been selected by Jotta Contemporary to show at the 2010 Affordable Art Fair; and has just received the Hooper’s Gallery Award for his MA graduate exhibition in London.
