Confine + Escape
Open 30 October – 20 November – Thursday, Friday and Saturday 12 – 5pm
Ground Floor Temporary Exhibition Space, St. Anne’s House, BS4 4AB
Confine + escape is a sharing of what it means to be creative in confinement.
Four individuals come together to communicate their means of escapism through multimedia practices. For some this has meant creating work that focuses on new or alternate realities and for others it has meant approaching their current reality with a new mindset.
This exhibition celebrates adaptability and resilience, highlighting how creatives have had to be versatile in approaches to their practice during 2020/2021.
This exhibition is located in a temporary exhibition space in St. Anne’s House. Bricks aims to support local and emerging artists in Bristol by providing places where they can showcase their work.

“My work exists to challenge myself by exposing the vulnerabilities I work so hard to hide. My imagery has a simulated and timeless quality that reflects the detachment I have developed to daily life and how I choose to instead romanticise the most mundane experiences. My work is self-oriented but I believe my imagery can be widely interpreted and allow many people to relate to it.”
