CITY AND HERD
A Pop Up Exhibition of new paintings to be opened by Maggi Hambling
6pm-10pm, Tuesday 6th March 2012
Studio 2, Shoreditch Studios, London, EC2A 3HH
“These two highly-talented young artists respond with great life-force to their subject. Neither is afraid of paint: each one relishes it, and these encounters are full of discovery.” Maggi Hambling, January 2012
Inspired by Van Gogh and Pissaro (both of whom painted within minutes of his doorstep in Lambeth) and Frank Auerbach’s industrial landscapes, Conrad Armstrong is fascinated by his native city. Whether it’s the throbbing red glow of night, the pockets of green that dot the heaving metropolis, the bustling street markets, or the view from a city rooftop, he responds to its light, dark and immense beauty with a unique sensitivity that makes it his own.
Armstrong (b.1989) is an artist and painter from London. A student of Maggi Hambling since he was 18, he also studied at Central Saint Martins, The Prince’s Drawing School and attended John Monk’s Life Drawing Classes at Saint Xavier in Clapham. He has exhibited his work in London and Suffolk and had his first solo exhibition, a pop up gallery on Platform One of Wandsworth Common Station, in 2009. Conrad’s studio travels with him from East London, Morocco, East Anglia to Bordeaux. He is also a founder member of acclaimed Psychedelic Garage Punk band ‘Black Manila’ who played at Glastonbury in 2011 and tour underground venues around Europe.

The current focus of Suffolk-born Jelly Green’s work is cows, or the Herd – an interest stimulated by her family’s dairy-herd in Suffolk and her recent travels in Vietnam and Cambodia. This series of paintings reflects the artist’s intimacy with her subject and her desire to define the individual within the herd.
Jelly Green (b.1992) is a figurative painter. A student of Maggi Hambling since she was 16, Jelly has exhibited her work in London, Suffolk and Cambridge. In 2009 she was selected as a Royal Society of British Artists (RBA) Scholar, which led to her work being shown in Mall Galleries as part of the RBA Annual Show in 2010. She currently shows at The Rowley Gallery, Kensington Church Street and divides her time between her Suffolk studio and London where she continues to study at The Prince’s Drawing School.
