Ralph Hunter-Menzies

Ralph Hunter-Menzies is the youngest artist in the show having studied both his Foundation Diploma and BA Fine Arts degree at the Chelsea College of Art & Design in London, where he graduated in 2010. Ralph has created new works for this show that, in his own words, "focus on the isolation of a single movement an artist would make." This process enables him to explore the surface he works on in a highly energetic and spontaneous way. His attitude and relationship to the surface he paints affects the outcome of each piece. Ralph has recently moved from making monochromatic paintings to experimenting with a more idiosyncratic palette, creating tension through different and exciting colour combinations.  Ralph finds it important to his practice to be spontaneous with his aesthetic choices in order to keep his intensity genuine.
