Whilst not intentional or themed, Arcade Studios’ inaugural year has focused on painting, drawing and printmaking, with each of the artists taking a contemporary view on traditional genres such as portraiture and landscape.

Although art is not separate from the world around it or from dialogue with other media or techniques, each of the artist’s studio practices recognises its power lies in its own history, tradition, conventions and genres and looks to expand upon them.

Arcade Studios in Fairwater, Cardiff was launched in early 2015 by Arcade Cardiff Director, Robert Kennedy, as a sister organisation to the gallery. Arcade Studios provides professional quality studio provision in Cardiff in a critical and supportive environment.

To celebrate the 1st anniversary of Arcade Studios, the 5 resident studio artists exhibit together for the first time. As well as referencing the studio dart board (an essential of any successful studio), Double Top looks at the differences and shared concerns of 5 artists in their first year at Arcade.

Ym mlwyddyn cyntaf Arcade Studios, gwelir yr artistiaid yn ffocysu ar waith peintio, darlunio a gwaith print, gyda’r artistiaid yn creu gwaith cyfoes ar ffurfiau traddodiadol fel portreadau a thirlunio.

Er nad yw celf yn wahanol i’r byd o’i amgylch nac o ddialog â chyfryngau eraill, mae’r artistiaid yn cydnabod bod y pwysigrwydd a’r pwer yn ei hanes, traddodiad, ymddygiad a’i ddulliau ac edrychant i ehangu ar hyn yn eu gwaith.

Lanswyd Arcade Studios yn Nhorfaen, Caerdydd yn 2015 gan Rob Kennedy, cyfarwyddwr ArcadeCardiff fel corff i gyd-fynd â’r oriel. Mae Arcade Studios yn darparu stiwdios proffesiynol o safon.

I dathlu penblwydd cyntaf Arcade Studios, mae’r 5 artist yn arddangos gyda’i gilydd am y tro cyntaf. Gan gyfeirio at y bwrdd darts ( hanfodol ar gyfer unrhyw stiwdio llwyddiannus) mae Double Top yn tynnu sylw at y gwahaniaethau a’r perthynas rhwng y 5 artist yn eu blwyddyn cyntaf yn Arcade.
