ARTWORK OF TOOHEY & THORP SHINES AT ARTFORM GALLERY

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Lower Burrell, PA Jan. 16, 2010- Newest show of work in Lower Burrell is “Clothing Optional”

Announcing a new exhibition of artwork by local artists Lauren Toohey and Sam Thorp.
The show will feature exemplary figurative work of in various states of undress and vulnerability. Both Toohey and Thorp will use the same models for their own creative interpretations. Refreshments and music will fill out the evening.

Lauren Elizabeth Toohey ate PlayDoh and crayons when she was a small child. This fertilized the creative seed that started to grow inside her. As she matured the creative seed then grew, and wormed its way out. She spit forth art, and never stopped spitting.
At night she arms herself with social banter and art ready to hang at fine art galleries including the Zombo Gallery, Artforms, Butler Center for the Arts, Wizard of Oddities, Get Inked Gallery, the Art What You Got Festival, ICAG Gallery, and Most Wanted Fine Art. She has curated events including Final Fridays at the BBT, and Art at the Rex Theater. Thematically her artwork is organic, sexually charged and sometimes violent. Her color schemes vary from series to series and so does her method of execution. A large portion of her work is mixed-media and based on the human figure.

Sam Thorp has been exhibiting artwork professionally around the world since the age of 16, with collectors around the world in the UK, Greece and Australia. Sam Thorp is classically trained in anatomy and fine art but experiments in modern technology to supplement traditional image making. Sam’s subject matter is rooted in western tradition of figure studies with a deep interest in psychology and the personality of the models. The result is not a mere design or hunks of flesh but an expression of the living breathing uniqueness of each person.

Exhibition runs from: Friday January 16th to January 30th.
Gallery Opening: Friday 16th of January 6pm- to 11pm
