Off the wall -Storm Dennis, 2020
Imogen Rigden

I am an experimental contemporary artist who makes paintings, drawings, sculptures and installations, for example using paper, metal, water, paint and discarded building materials.

I attended W.A.S. from 2014 until 2016 and continued to attend contemporary painting classes at Ovada until 2018. My practice notices the ignored and threatened natural world in the urban and semi urban environment. I vaunt the beauty and the importance of the wild plants, or weeds, and the breathing space provided by increasingly rare patches of undeveloped land. I follow the fortunes of street plants and notice their removal. More broadly my work discusses the wider threats of sea level rise and wild weather – this mostly in semi abstract paintings and drawings which unsettle the viewer.
