May 2010: Curators Wayne Warren & John Quarendon

B P Collins proudly presents contemporary modern art by emerging and established artists. Following the exclusive champagne preview on 27 May 2010, the exhibition will continue through until 27 August for guests of B P Collins to enjoy.

Curated by artist Wayne Warren and arranged in conjunction with TAG Fine Arts, this exhibition allows clients to explore the diverse and expressive world of leading modern artists, as well as new and burgeoning creative talent.
Warren currently lives and works in Hertfordshire.

He is the owner and Principal of Radlett Preparatory School in Hertfordshire. As an artist, he has had great success with many solo shows as well as group exhibitions all over the world. Warren admits to being influenced by the British painter Roger Hilton. Perhaps this accounts for the artist’s use of rich colour and textures. However, it is Warren’s affinity with Hilton’s belief that ‘abstraction in itself is nothing. It is only a step towards a new sort of figuration, that is, one which is more true,” (Hilton, 1961) which explains why his work oscillates between figuration and abstraction so effortlessly, whilst continuing to maintain a fresh quality and sense of humour. His ‘Golden Excess’ print is available to view at this exhibition and you can read more about his artistic philosophy in the artists section of this blog.

For this particular exhibition, Warren was assisted by his colleague, John Quarendon, who is an urban art specialist. Recently retired as Principal Lecturer in Business Studies, Quarendon is actively pursuing his passion for art, in particular his specialist area of urban art. He has curated several exhibitions and is a keen advocate and supporter of many young contemporary artists whose work can excite, provoke and often challenge our perceptions and can move us out of our comfort zones.
