As part of New Art West Midlands 2018, Birmingham City University graduate Olivia Peake has been awarded an exhibition at the prestigious RBSA Gallery in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter next year.

Olivia’s work explores the illusionistic qualities of light, surface and space. She describes her sculpture and installations as ‘sensory environments of reflective surfaces and minimalist neo-futuristic design, which disorientate the viewer’s perspective, distorting boundaries between media and disrupting spatial limitations.’

The judges were RBSA artists Annette Pugh and Caroline Ali. They selected Olivia as they felt her work extends the notion of painting beyond the obvious, is well presented, and shows sensitivity to the space of installation. They also felt that the significant cross-over between disciplines is something that would present an interesting dynamic within their space and appeal to a broad section of RBSA artists and visitors alike.

Her month long exhibition will take place from 10 June – 10 August 2019 in the RBSA’s ground floor exhibition space.
