PRESS RELEASE

Seven artists come together for the exhibition ‘Turn the Tides’, an exhibition exclusive to Artsy curated by Liminal Gallery. Featuring the works of Catherine Chinatree, Cedric Christie, Damien Cifelli, Sarah Maple, David Shillinglaw, Maud Whatley and Mercedes Workman, this group exhibition presents a nuanced blend of diverse expressions, exploring artists who are working in unique and exciting ways across the mediums.  

Catherine Chinatree

Margate-based Catherine Chinatree’s work, rooted in her Welsh, Caribbean, and Irish heritage, delves into identity, dualism, and cultural fluidity. Inspired by anthropology and social surrealism, her paintings are a testament to her deeply embedded connection with hybrid culture. With a Master's in Fine Art from Wimbledon College of Arts, Chinatree has garnered accolades, including the Ferdynand Zweig Arts Travel Scholarship and a collaborative engagement project between the UK and Havana, Cuba.

Cedric Christie

London-based artist Cedric Christie, a former welder, brings an industrial poetry to the exhibition. His sculptures, crafted from found materials such as phenolic resin snooker balls and scaffolding pipes, mirror daily life while exploring the boundaries of modernism and minimalism. International recognition at Art Chicago and Art Forum Berlin catapulted Christie into the spotlight. His work now resides in prestigious collections globally, reflecting his influence on the contemporary art scene.

Damien Cifelli

Multidisciplinary artist Damien Cifelli, hailing from Edinburgh and now based in Portugal, immerses viewers in the fictitious land of Tarogramma. Through detailed paintings, Cifelli presents a culture with its own aesthetic, offering a parallel world that is both alien and strangely familiar. Recent awards, including Saatchi Art's 'Rising Star' and Dazed x Gap New Generation, attest to Cifelli's rising prominence in the art world.

Sarah Maple

Award-winning visual artist Sarah Maple fearlessly challenges norms through her bold and controversial artworks. With a mixed religious and cultural upbringing as her muse, Maple's work has featured in international institutions such as Tate Britain and the Baltic. Her works confront issues of identity, religion, race, feminism, and freedom of expression.

David Shillinglaw

UK-based artist David Shillinglaw navigates the complexities of human nature, success, and failure through a diverse range of mediums. His practice seamlessly transitions between the street and studio, producing drawings, collages, large-scale murals, and installations. Shillinglaw's exploration of visual language resonates with a profound understanding of the human experience.

Maud Whatley

Margate-based Maud Whatley weaves a tapestry of visual language in her drawings, layering images from art-historical paintings, online archives, and personal captures. Her work delves into the politics of looking, revealing the unexpected eroticism of juxtaposed ideas. Whatley's exhibitions in Margate, London, and Folkestone, along with her academic contributions, mark her as an exciting emerging voice in contemporary art.

Mercedes Workman

Mercedes Workman, based in Margate, transforms her overactive mind into a visual symphony. With a passion for ceramics and illustrative work, Workman explores themes around womanhood, motherhood, and identity. Her vigorous brushwork and mark-making create pieces that exude familiarity and comfort, showcased in her recent solo exhibition, 'ABC of Me,' at Tracey Emin’s TKE Studios.
