104 Duke Street
The creative heads behind 104 Duke Street Collective are excited to open their doors and welcome the public to view their highly anticipated debut exhibition which ties in with this year’s Light Night festivities.
Formed back in January 2013 by Cherie Grist, Colette Lilley and Laura O’Reily, the space was opened by artists, for artists. It is currently home to 6 residing artists and is a thriving creative hub; a huge premises located right in the heart of the city centre, where they each have their own private space to develop their individual practices.
With their own original artistic style, the exhibition has a very eclectic range of themes through their pieces for the public to take in and enjoy; Cherie Grist documents her relationship with life itself through large abstract expressionist pieces and Colette Lilley investigates different states of being, showing the calming effect art can create on body and mind through her meditative drawings. Nicola Hands’ paintings explores the legacy of colonial British society with a specific emphasis on identity within the praxis of society and Laura O’Reily explains life and it’s every days things, outlined through the use of graphics. Karen O’Brien currently focusing on figurative painting and finally, Paul Romano will impress you with his exciting abstract pieces.
An exciting time for the collective of artists at the 104 Duke Street, they are very eager to share with you the last 12 months of their hard work. The exhibition also ties in with various other exhibitions and events taking place within the city for Liverpool Art Month.
