Soup ptVI Artist Residency and Development Programme, is the new iteration of the established Soup residency programme, providing a combined approach to the growth of local artistic talent, in partnership with Asylum Gallery, Wolverhampton.

For June we are joined by mid career artist Paul Newman. Paul has undertaken his residency throughout May, creating interventions in the space and exploring:

‘A re-enactment of repetitions and rituals against the backdrop of relentless urban regeneration all around this artists’ studio space and the city in general. The Stryx gallery will present painting, objects and live performance, exploring personal themes in relation to romantic and haunted notions of ruins; of architecture, the body and the mind.’

A free artist’s talk is taking place at 5:30 pm, tickets available via Ticketsource. Event link below.

In addition to the artists talk there will be a live performance: ‘Ghost Rope’ from 6.30 pm.
