Ash Brockwell is a transmasculine artivist based in Southampton. He has exhibited in group shows with Hampshire Open Studios and Hants & Berks Creatives, and at the d.@rt Centre in Hedge End. His first solo exhibition, ‘TransVerse’, was held at the Art House, Southampton, in August 2019.
Acrylic paint is Ash’s preferred starting point, but his work can go in any direction – often incorporating natural earth pigments, fabrics, paper, found objects, and of course ash! His paintings explore the highs and lows of transition, including gender dysphoria and euphoria, media transphobia, hate crime, mental health challenges, hope and resilience.
