International collage artist Ernesto Muniz arrived in Liverpool on 4th July from Mexico City to work on a new collection of work for a pop up show at the Corke Gallery to coincide with the Biennial Fringe and opens to the public from Friday 26 August to Friday 23 September 2016 before. After the exhibition in Liverpool Ernesto will be heading off for another exhibition in Madrid in Spain during October 2016.
As part of its commitment to forging links with international artists the Corke Gallery has sponsored Ernesto and brought him to the UK and provided him with studio space to create his amazingly details, surrealist collages. Ernesto has previously shown at the Corke Gallery in 2010 and 2012 and has recently had exhibitions in San Jose in the USA and Mexico City.
Ernesto’s new work is being shown at the Corke Gallery during the Utopia Deferred exhibition so I hope you can come along and meet him, see his new collection of work and also enjoy the paintings by Mandy Payne, Paul Collinson and Conor Rogers who are all artists featured in recent John Moores Painting Prize exhibitions – Mandy Payne was also a Prize Winner in 2014 and she has a painting in the current 2016 exhibition at the Walker Art Gallery. Details and pictures of the works in both Ernesto’s forthcoming exhibition ‘Of Angels & Demons’and paintings by Mandy Payne, Paul Collinson and Conor Rogers in the Utopia Deferred exhibition currently showing at the gallery from 1pm – 5pm Wednesday to Friday can be viewed at the Corke Gallery’s website www.corkeartgallery.co.uk
