You Will Always Find Me In The Kitchen At Parties brings together works on paper by four of Britain's most exciting emerging artists. Each known for their mastery of composition and colour, the playful artworks in this show recreate the everyday within each artist's own unique perspective of reality.  Participating artists: David Horgan, Frankie Thorp, Matt Macken, and Nimah Birch. 


Frankie Thorp is a London-based artist who explores the humour and familiarity found in everyday objects. Her work is a modern twist on traditional still life painting, with kitsch 70s and 80s references such as cocktails and retro desserts. Frankie's still life table-scapes often evoke an implied narrative, perhaps the beginning or end of a party or gathering with friends. Frankie studied illustration at the London College of Communication.

Matt Macken explores the human condition through his painterly process and does so with innate sensitivity and humour. Matt works in series, creating various artworks at a time. This leads to recurring symbols, themes, and narratives in his work. Matt has recently exhibited with  Saatchi Gallery, Delphian Gallery, and Arusha Gallery. His works are owned by various collectors and collections around the world, including the Soho House permanent art collection. Matt lives and works in Leicester.

David Horgan is a self-taught, London-based painter interested in storytelling and social commentary. David conveys fictional narratives, often with figurative scenes expressed through a fast-paced, raw, and emotive style, all suffused with a healthy dose of humour. David’s inspiration comes from an amalgamation of every day life and experience intermingled with popular culture and iconography. His work has been exhibited internationally, including in Spain, Australia, Denmark, and the Netherlands.

Niamh Birch employs thick luscious paint and harsh black marks to create highly expressive artwork. Her work harks back to the rich history of still life in art but is repositioned within a fresh and humourous narrative. Niamh has participated in several shows since graduating with a 1:1 in Contemporary Arts Practice at Bath Spa University in 2019, including New Colour Now at Livingstone St Ives (2022), No Place Like Home at The Fitzrovia Gallery (2022), Works on Paper 3 at Blue Shop Cottage (2021), and Tempo at The Brick Lane Gallery (2020).
