18th September – 13th October 2018, Courtyard Arts Centre

Bryan RidpathEach year we welcome a recent graduate or newly-established artist to join us for a month-long residency.

We are delighted to introduce Bryan Ridpath – a Fine Art graduate from the University of Hertfordshire – as our 2018 Artist in Residence.

Bryan’s current practice is based around sculpture, installation, ceramics, digital art (3D modelling & 3D printing), whilst also utilising found objects and imagery.

His most recent project – an installation on a fictionalised version of his hometown Stevenage – used sculpture and archive film footage to explore the flaws and nostalgic visions of a post war ‘hinter-town’.

The concept of the residency provides an ideal space for visitors to engage with artists as they explore their ideas, and not just to simply appreciate their finished works.  We hope you will enjoy the opportunity to experience an insight into – and dialogue with – Bryan’s creative process.
