Charlie Billingham's 'Promenade', printed in the Jealous Studios in 2014 as part of his Jealous Prize Winning residency, has been accepted into this year's Royal Academy Summer Exhibition!
Charlie Billingham was born in London where he lives and works. He received an MA in Fine Art and History of Art from the University of Edinburgh and Edinburgh College of Art (2008), followed by a Post Graduate Diploma from the Royal Academy Schools (2013). Charlie has exhibited internationally in both solo and group shows. Recent solo exhibitions include Tender, Ceri Hand Gallery (2013) and Hunting Dogs, Hunting Cats, Marcelle Joseph Projects (2012). Group shows include Art Britannia, Miami, (2013); Open Heart Surgery, Moving Museum, London, (2013); Clay Pipe, HFBK, Hamburg, (2013); New Order: British Art Today, Saatchi Gallery, London, (2013); Another Room, R O O M, Artspace, London, (2012). Charlie’s practice works to both celebrate and question painting and it’s heritage. Drawing inspiration from a wide range of historical and satirical influences through a range of subjects, 18th and early 19th century motifs feature throughout his work, specifically the work of caricaturists Cruikshank and Gillray. Regency britches, wigs and waistcoats are repeated, flipped and cropped in arrays of decorative colours and finishes. It is through this repetition that the past becoming detached from our consciousness, becoming a disconnected period, a sequence of changing décor and tastes. Charlie’s Jealous Prize print edition is now held in the Victoria & Albert Museum Permanent Print Collection.
