Oliver Hemsley (Live at TKE Studios, Margate)

Talk Art Live with Oliver Hemsley!!! Season 17 FINALE!!! For our second interview with artist Oliver Hemsley, we meet within his debut exhibition at TKE Studios, Margate - the artist studio complex and gallery founded by Tracey Emin. Recorded in front of an intimate audience of art lovers, Margate family and friends, this episode is one of our proudest moments - proud of our talent friend Oliver and his extraordinary exhibition. We discuss his new works on canvas - a new development in his journey making paintings, having predominantly previously worked on paper.

Oliver Hemsley is an autobiographical artist who lives in Suffolk with his two dogs. For his first solo exhibition, Hemsley presents a selection of intimate and confronting self-portrait paintings produced in his home studio. CAREGIVERS is an unapologetic and uncompromising look at the body and the personal complexities of an existence that is dependent on the care of others.
Hemsley is the first artist to have a solo show curated by Tracey Emin and Elissa Cray at TKE Studios and it has been selected to coincide with Margate Pride. You can read more from Oliver in our recent Talk Art: The Interviews book. Available now! You can listen to our previous 2021 interview with Oliver in the Talk Art podcast archive (click here).
