ARTISTS LUNCHTIME CRIT: Led by Luke Burton & Anna Salamon

SAT 28 JAN // 12-2pm // At Turf Gallery // Free

Calling all artists, art students, graduates alike!

Taking place every last Saturday of the month, our lunchtime crits give artists a chance to get feedback on their work from a practicing artist in a supportive and friendly environment.

All forms of work are welcomed for discussion. Simply bring along your work, and we’ll take turns to discuss it and give feedback for each participant. Email us your images beforehand at at info@turf-projects.com along with any additional requirements if you’d like us to get images up full scale on our projector!

Participation isn’t mandatory – you’re welcome to simply come and view the works and take part in the discussions.


January`s crit will be led by WAVES artists Anna Salamon & Luke Burton.



Anna Salamon’s work explores the opportune moment of painterly, material gesture in relation to concepts of immateriality, novelty and futurity. Recent paintings present a consciously limited palette, experimenting with continuity and disjunction. Whilst being strongly rooted in the material genealogy of previous brushmarks, each painting is developed ‘anew’ without specifically designated visual source material.  Salamon’s practice-led research investigates possible translations between matter and the non-material, including breathing, language, thought and memory. This is undertaken through foregrounding painting as practice of timeliness, in which an attitude of alertness and receptivity is cultivated. Outputs of this work include paintings, prints, texts and installations.

Anna Salamon (born 1984, Warsaw) has exhibited her work at The Ruskin Gallery, Cambridge (2016); Lewisham Arthouse/Art Licks Weekend, London (2015); A.P.T Gallery, London and Backlit Gallery, Nottingham (both 2013); 1500m, Warsaw; Aalders Gallery, St. Tropez (both 2010); Centre Civic Convent de San Agusti, Barcelona (solo); Kunsthaus Tacheles, Berlin; Clare College, University of Cambridge (solo) (all 2009); Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge, Outpost Gallery, Norwich (2008). Her research has been published in the Journal of Contemporary Painting, UAL, Vol.2/Issue 2 (2016) and presented at the 1st PARSE Biennial Research Conference, Gothenburg (2015). She was a recipient of Dunoyer De Segonzac Award (2012) and Landseer Award (2011). Salamon graduated from the Royal Academy Schools, London (2012) and Cambridge School of Art, Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge (2008), having previously studied Cultural Studies at the University of Warsaw.
