You are invited to join us for the next Artsocial with 44AD Associates Anya Beaumont and Clare Winnan who will be discussing the artwork and artists involved in their exhibition The Obsessive Compulsive Practice curated as part of Fringe Arts Bath.
Much art is born out of the need to make, a distracting busyness, a positive manifestation of anxiety.
Obsessive collecting and hoarding, the painstaking, repetitive use of materials or processes, many artists have some sort of obsessive behaviour, whether this is the process of making work, the research of objects and ideas or an over-immersion of processes.
'The Obsessive Compulsive Practice' brings together the work of a range of artists at various stages of their careers and incorporates film, sculpture, installation, drawing and painting in its quest to understand the significance of this methodology, whether it is finding order in chaos, beauty in the banal or the pinning down of meaning in a seemingly random world.
