‘OVERVIEW 07’

Exhibition open – Friday 23rd February to Friday 23rd March 2007

Loop is celebrating Liverpool’s 800th birthday with a survey of abstract practitioners working within and around the city in 2007. OVERVIEW 07 demonstrates the diverse and colourful energy that is generated by many individuals working within the inexhaustible realms of abstraction.

Loop, which is the city’s foremost independent promoter of abstract art on Merseyside is bringing this collection together to spotlight the celebration of today’s living homegrown artists.

This pioneering exhibition consists of thirty abstract artists who work in and around the City of Liverpool and have contributed to a new vibrant resurgence of visual arts.

The artists represent a new Avant-Garde which is filled with dynamic colourful energy whose diverse approaches make an inspiring landmark upon Liverpool’s cultural renaissance. The works on show range from colourful painted compositions, print, photography, constructions and sculpture all encapsulating a driving force of intrigue and contemplation.

This show represents the heart of the creative community of Liverpool, these are the artists who highlighted the creative bedrock which Capital of Culture was built upon. When the all flashing and dancing lights are slightly dimmed these are the practitioners who will constantly add colour to Liverpool’s cultural landscape.

Loop organizer Arthur Roberts says,
‘Its extraordinary to witness such a vibrant and varied language that abstract art is, to see thirty diverse artworks sparkling with energy and life is a privilege to behold’. Arthur continues, ‘working in partnership with Hope University has be an absolute pleasure.
