About the Free Painters and Sculptors
The Free Painters, Sculptors and Printmakers (formerly the Free Painters Group) has a unique place in British art. The group was established in 1952 and was originally associated with the ICA (Institute of Contemporary Arts).
The founding members featured many high profile and influential artists, including Roy Rasmussen, Lyall Watson and Maurice Jadot.
During the fifties and sixties, FPS played a significant part in the establishment of abstract art, being the first of a number of post war movements that freed artists from the orthodoxy of rigid and purely technical judgements.
The current FPS membership consists of an international collective of painters, sculptors and printmakers, who hold group exhibitions two times a year in some of London's most exciting commercial galleries.

A Handful of Molecules and a Bucket of Water 13-18 June 2013
Preview: Thursday 13 June 6-9pm - performance by Jones Tensini at 8pm An exhibition exploring human nature.
A human being is, in the empirical sense, mainly water, the remainder being a selection of diverse elements of the periodic table.
But what makes us who we are and what distinguishes us from other living organisms? One way of examining this is to consider the different and natural ways that we think, feel and act regardless of cultural context.
The artists have explored the diverse elements of human emotion and behaviour and have interpreted them using their own vision, understanding, feeling and experience.
Come and see the results of their exploration in a variety of media.

Continuum Caro Millington & Sarah Knight 18-23 July 2013
Preview: Thursday 25 July 6-9pm Urban Angles – Exploring the ever-changing spirit of the city.
In this exciting exhibition twelve contemporary artists present twelve responses expressing their perceptions of the urban environment. Using an eclectic mix of different media, this show promises to be a fascinating journey exploring many pathways. Print, painting, illustration, graphics, photography and sculpture come together as each artist brings their own unique experiences to the collective.
Images of structure, geometry, reflection, shadow, intrigue and transience provide the essence for the exhibition. As with other Espacio exhibitions, all the artists are actively involved with the gallery and many will be available each day for a friendly chat about their work and the Espacio group.
