160 Arundel Street, Sheffield, S14RE


GLOAM is a collectively-run exhibition and studio space located in Sheffield City Centre. It was originally set up by Mark Riddington on Mary Street in 2017. In 2020, GLOAM incorporated with a co-operative structure to include six additional co-directors (Stu Burke, Thomas Lee Griffiths, Sam Francis Read, Victoria Sharples & Rose Hedy Squires) and relocated for expansion to Arundel Street; the former location of the DIY music venue, The Lughole.

An Expanding Field

“Painting today is a boundless practice, only limited by the artist’s imagination. Expanded painting requires you to ‘think outside the box’, or in a lot of cases ‘…off the canvas’. An Expanding Field celebrates 21 international artists who stretch the boundaries of painting, conceptually and physically dismantling the traditions of painting and reconfiguring, reducing and modifying them to become an existence of process and ideas. The show will be unapologetically colourful and playful and immersive.”
Artists from Spain, Turkey, Germany, The Netherlands, Australia, USA, UK, Ireland and Panama were invited to exhibit in this group show, providing a cross section of international expanded painting from across five continents. Stu Burke was invited by Deb Covell and Kieran Brimm to host an exhibition of expanded painting on the back of Border Crossing at Pineapple Black, Middlesborough (2021) curated by Kieran Brimm and Yellow Archangel: Perceiving Anomalies at General Practice, Lincoln (2021) curated by Paul Bramley and Allyson Keehan. An Expanding Field continues the rigorous examination of expanded painting initiated by its predecessors.
