No Ordinary Home by Luke Tarpey
Tarpey Gallery is delighted to present 'No Ordinary Home' - A solo show of hand cut collage work by gallery manager Luke Tarpey. It's been a bit of a whirlwind year or so for Luke having been awarded the LSA George Pickard Prize, followed by exhibiting in two incredibly prestigious open exhibitions - The Royal Academy Summer Show and the Royal West of England Academy Open 170. So he's decided now is the time to put on his first ever solo show and we would be absolutely thrilled if you could join us for the launch event on the 23rd September 2023 from 2 - 5pm.
The work is ultimately about imagination; creating a world to escape into, letting go of preconceived ideas and living in fantastical places where anything is possible. Constructing narratives and structures that celebrate our individuality and sense of place. The work can be both serious and playful but will always be a celebration of the transportive power of art as therapy. Luke Tarpey, 2023
