Musicology, an exhibition of new work by Olivia Bullock is a compelling collection of painting, collage and sculpted figures, based around the disciplines of music.

Bullocks’ work is inspired by legends, stories and traditions. Her invented beasts, masked beings, mysterious and humourous characters occupy a captivating, mythological world have already captured an audience who share her love of music, pop culture and dark stories.

This new exhibition consists of a series of images inspired by the theories of musicology. It is not a visual translation, but a response to the history, structure and narrative inherent in all genres of music, culturally and socially. Drawing inspiration from these deep rooted traditions, Bullock has created a series of gouache collages which narratively explores the themes of musicology within the realms of mythology, folklore and popular culture.

The sculptures appear in an almost trance like state. unconsciously transported by music into an emotional solitude. Like her illustrations, the sculptures inhabit a dark and mysterious world. They have an intimacy and a living presence, yet they are inanimate and ‘unreal’, charismatic, yet flawed.

The venue is a new exhibition space at Paddock Studios, a working artist studios underneath the Castle in the historic market town of Lewes, Sussex, from 22-30 March 2014.

After completing a BA (hons) fine art painting, Kingston upon Thames University, 1998 Olivia Bullock worked at Central St Martins College of Art & Design before becoming a freelance fashion illustrator. She works as an artist and lives in Lewes with her partner and two children.
