Upcoming British contemporary artists exhibit at London Art Fair


Works from a number of Britain’s most up and coming modern artists will be on show this weekend at the UK’s largest contemporary art fair (scroll to see gallery).

Chloe Rosser, whose work (pictured below) focusses on photographing the naked body in contorted poses, is among a number of emerging artists who have been tipped for success in the art world.

Rosser, who recently completed her BA in Photography at Falmouth University, has been named as one of the most exciting recent graduates by industry insiders in The Catlin Guide 2014.

She says of her work: “My work is about the human figure. I photograph the body in contorted poses, creating surreal images of seemingly inhuman objects. The body becomes a mindless mass of flesh, both intriguing and repelling.”

Ceramicist Anna Barlow (work above) is another upcoming artist, whose work will be showcased by Bicha Gallery. Working in clay, she creates kitsch, realistic replications of overflowing desserts, including ice cream sundaes, cupcakes and banana splits.

They will be joined by hundreds of other contemporary artists who will be showcasing their work among collectors' favourites Francis Bacon, David Hockney and Peter Blake.

The London Art Fair runs from 15-19 January at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London, N1.
