‘Where you are not’ features work by 8 brilliant contemporary painters, photographers & sculptors explored through their use of the colour blue.

These artists have had tremendous success in their careers to date; exhibiting across the world at prestigious events such as Frieze & Unseen, and feature in many international collections.

Due to Copeland Gallery’s generous sponsorship, this artist-led exhibition has been organised by Maddie Rose Hills without artist fees or commission in a genuine attempt to re-invent the way that artists meet collectors, and to champion their work without financial motive.

All production costs are being funded through this Kickstarter campaign.The artists have donated either work or a talk which will be sold here together with the other rewards listed below.

The artists involved in the exhibition are Tom Pope, Florence Sweeney, Tess Williams, Matilda Little, Katrina Russell-Adams, Maddie Rose Hills, Simone Mudde & Alexander Mourant,

Risks and challenges

There is a great team involved and the artists have been engaged and involved in all aspects of production from the start. We will only be hanging paintings and photographs which we are all confident with and all of the partners and collaborators are already confirmed. I am confident that with the team involved we can deliver a fantastic show.
