"Getting Beneath the Skin" Eddie Tucker Artists Talk - Monday 21st March 2022 at 6pm Please join me to celebrate the achievement of OCA SYP student Eddie Tucker who has just completed his final degree show with us and is soon to graduate.

Level 3 Painting SYP student Eddie Tucker (Edmond) will talk about his degree show exhibition and his practice at an Artist Talk. His exhibition Collocations –pain & trauma, is an exploration of how pain, injury and trauma of body and mind can be depicted through painting, these works portray the person behind the pain. Eddie describes his work as ‘getting beneath the skin’.

With the world still reeling from the physical and mental pain of covid and its stories of personal loss and pain from illness and bereavement this was a timely exhibition. With over 50 works there is a range of paintings from Disney cartoons to black-eyed rugby players, depression, loss and hurt.

Eddie’s own experiences of ongoing pain give him a head-start to depicting pain and through this wide and extensive body of work he develops a narrative through paired and collocated works looking at how physicality and mentality, their imperfections, damages, fragilities of injury and age is revealed in the flesh. In these works he gives the viewer an insight to how pain is perceived by a sufferer.
