Cooper’s practice investigates the relationship between painting as image and
painting as object or artefact.
Found objects, ‘gifted’ through chance and serendipity, provide the catalyst to
create work. Through utilising the storytelling potential of overlooked objects.
her paintings draw out connections, or ‘immaterial goods’, both real and
imagined. Alongside the paintings, homespun ‘accessories’ cack-handedly
formed around discarded objects may function as footnote, appendage or
Sometimes the painting on the wall becomes accessory to the object.
A hovering stance.
Shifting points of view
A fine art folk craft collision
Through adopting a collage approach, Cooper’s practice allows multiple
paintings to co-exist in installations deliberately created to accommodate and
‘excuse’ a restless range of styles and approaches. Interchangeable parts
weave colour, pattern and shape in an attempt to create, however fleetingly, a
‘whole’ painting. The autonomy of individual parts is questionable as they
reach out to one another for completion, never appearing the same way twice.
‘’ Imagine a pop-up book of your inner child’s dress up box crossed with a
charity shop with zero gravity, and that doesn’t come close to how gleefully
playful this work is. I loved the approachable and tactile nature of these
beauties, and the character each piece toys with.”

GROWlab is an experiment...
experiment in growing…
growing to see what emerges, when…
when what happens if:
Growth is free
Growth is curbed
Growth is pushed
Growth is framed
Growth is stopped
The artists in General Practice will spend a year with experimenting in seeing what happens when you approach growing as a creative medium. Friends - both existing and yet to be made - will also input into GROWlab in as yet unknown ways, a programme to be made through conversation, through doing and thinking-making. The formerly male toilets will shift from their current use as a store to be converted to GROWlab. Curiosity is the only pejorative, no outcomes or outputs are expected, only the drive to set things in motion.
[gP] is an artist collective living and working from Lincoln, UK.
Promoting exchange with wider artist led initiatives nationally and internationally [gP] seeks to stimulate a critical discourse, and sustain an engaged visual arts culture in the city through the programming of exhibitions, events and workshops.
With an emphasis on a fluid and experimental approach, gP encourages a diverse range of artistic practices that are developed collectively. Within the core group of approximately 10 artists there are on-going collaborations with more specific interests such as Curio, Mulch, Angry Gang, GAST, Reel and KAC which extend into the wider artistic community, incorporating contributions from practitioners in other locales. This collaborative ethos is clearly demonstrated through our workshop practice too; continuing to encourage collective exploration of creative subjects, blurring the line between workshop facilitators and workshop attendees.
[gP] has begun offering a selection of events, workshops and exhibitions for 2020.
The calendar shows all upcoming events we have planned so far. Keep checking back for more info on what is happening next.
Regular events include life drawing classes and open crits at our project studio on Clasketgate, Lincoln.
