Artist Sharon Drew has four weeks to use UEL (University of East London) Project Space as her studio. Flat-Out refers to her process of painting canvases on the floor and also the pace at which she intends to work. These will be energetic and dynamic abstract paintings and her temporary studio will be open to the public to view work-in-progress and final outcome.
Action-Painters such as Willem de-Kooning and Jackson Pollock have affected and influenced Drew’s work with their immersive, sensuous, process-based paintings since her student days at UEL. It is timely that the New York Abstract Expressionist exhibition is currently showing at the Royal Academy of Art.
Drew’s work was selected for this year’s Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and has also been shortlisted for several painting prizes. Her work has shown in London, including Terminal 5 Heathrow Airport, Paris and Singapore.
