No Words Needed… Only One … Imogen

Published by The Robert Ogden School on Tuesday 11th of December 2018

22/03/18 marked the opening of Doncopolitan’s new art exhibition featuring the works of one amazingly talented, local artist, Imogen. Except, there is more to it than this – The collection of work is massive, having spent years building it up. It was displayed at Doncopolitan. A lot of her work takes inspiration from children’s TV shows, there’s a series around Clifford the Big Red Dog, Angelina Ballerina and Funny Bones, to name a few. The shows are from all different eras and rendered in all different mediums. She has an envelope series that took inspiration from actual deliveries sent to her house – considering the appearance of the envelopes as well as their contents. There is a series on boys and girls, all wearing colourful dungarees, rows and rows of mice after mice sporting pretty bows. The art ranged from the bright and colourful to just black and white, giving the overall exhibition a very feel-good mood – reflecting two heart-warming moments experienced on the opening night. First, when Imogen’s brother, James Carline, read a poem he’d written for his sister called “Talking Is Overrated”. Then second, when Imogen heard the news Doncopolitan and Rachel Horne were putting her art into a show – she uttered the words: “Rachel Artist”. What we can only imagine is an indication of just how much this exhibition has truly meant to her.
