The new season of exhibitions at the King’s Lynn Arts Centre has got off to an exciting start with “Emergence” highlighting the work of 20 young artists who have connections with Norfolk – some call it home, others have spent time studying the Visual Arts at local University.

The show offers a wide selection of art works covering a broad range of practices, from photography, painting, sculpture, video and textiles.

“We like to encourage emerging artists at the Arts Centre, and every time one of these young artists exhibit, it’s another step in their career” said organiser Liam Briscoe.

Liam Briscoe is also exhibiting himself. Following recent events in the Middle East, Liam has started to produce a series of paintings showing the struggles of veterans who have returned home with serious injuries. He says he produces his work as a means to educate, highlighting the effects that conflict has on the soldiers.

Ivan Chamers describes his work as “an escape from the mundane, a search for otherness that draws upon location and dislocation. Creating sculptures that allude to the hut, the head and the home. ‘Home’ haunts, it is the place of dreams and shadows.”

Henry Driver‘s piece, called Drone, investigates the disturbing possibility of a war game turning into real life combat.

David Lakshmanasamy‘s work investigates the inherent properties of material. He works principally with raw and recycled substances – exploring how they respond to different processes, and searching for their hidden qualities. Once discovered these raw elements are then transformed into distinctive sculptures

Jake Francis uses everyday objects and combines them to redefine the mundane furnishings that surround us. These once bland objects are then morphed in a light hearted way to escape the restrictions set around us.

The exhibition runs from Tuesday 13th – Saturday 17th January from 11am – 5pm at King’s Lynn Arts Centre. Admission is free.
