Cosmic Funk (make me want to rock) (2015)

Coren works across animation, painting, writing and audio; influenced by dance music culture, fashion surrounding football, storytelling, set design, and abstract and experimental film. His processes are specific, complex, and labour-intensive, often at odds with the resulting imagery. At times, stripped-back and reduced, at others heavily layered and vivid, Coren’s work prompts an imaginative reconstruction of the exhaustive practice of an artist.

Rhys Coren (b.1983, Plymouth, UK) lives and works in London. He graduated in Art & Visual Culture from UWE, Bristol, and is currently completing an MA at the Royal Academy of Arts, London. Working across painting, animation, sound and text, his work takes influence from music, experimental and abstract film, cartoons, poetry, people, story-telling, subculture and design. Recent solo exhibitions include: If We Can Dance Together, Jerwood Project Space, London (2015); Four to the Floor, Horatio Jr., London (2014); Apparel & Ornament, SPACE, London (2014). Recent group exhibitions include: E-Vapor-8, Site Gallery, Sheffield (2014); Vestige, Design Museum, London (2013); Young London, V22, London (2013).
