Pulse & Flow is an exhibition at New Gallery London by London artist Sharon Drew of works that appear in Art Is…, a new musical feature film directed by Barry Bliss and starring Emily Beecham, Paul McGann and Gary Kemp. Composer Doug Berwick has written ten new songs for the film.
Drew, the art consultant for Art Is…, provides the paintings for the character of Lulu (Beecham), a talented artist struggling to cope with the pressures leading up to her first solo exhibition, with the final scenes being shot in Peckham at the New London Gallery.
“It has been a fascinating experience to be adopted by the film world,” says Drew. “It truly is a parallel universe; I am the painter but the film is not about me. Artifice and reality have been constantly interchangeable. Seeing the film crew in action was captivating, especially those moments when everyone connects, when magic happens.”
Light, space, colour and process are continuing preoccupations in Drew’s work. Pulse & Flow brings together two series of works; one is characterised by the flowing red forms of diluted acrylic paint while the other features more ordered yet feisty patterned imagery.
