Exhibition - Acid Bar - 20th September - 10th November

Selected Artist Works and SWG3 are pleased to present Flicks and Licks, the first solo show by London-based artist GraceWoodcock.  This show brings together a new body of work to sit beside a series first exhibited in ‘They Had Four Years’ at Generator Projects in Dundee in 2017. Both sets of work are bridged by a common focus on tactility. Earlier work focussed on a gesture of touch through a specific language of swipes. The lazy greasy marks smeared and flicked across our digital screens that illustrate the conversation between human and interface. More recently, Woodcock has become preoccupied by a wider notion of touch, working against the slick, stark, perfectly packaged culture to tease our tactile imagination. Incorporating the language of biomorphic, ergonomic furniture, and rituals of self-care these paintings are an exploration of touch without touch: an eye massage, a sensory surrogate. Grace Woodcock (b.1993, Luton) is currently undertaking a masters in painting at Royal College of Art (2017-19) and graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2016. Recent exhibitions include East Wing Biennial, The Courtauld, London; RCA WIP 2018 at the Royal College of Art, London; Collision: TMT x HOA at Guest Projects, London, and The Bear Club, Luton; They Had Four Years at Generator Projects, Dundee; The Law of Materials at Glasgow Print Studio, Glasgow; RSA New Contemporaries at Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh; and X at Blip blip blip, Leeds. She was awarded the George Jackson Hutchinson Memorial Prize 2016.
