Techniques used by David Charles Williams attract the viewer’s attention and keeps it on his work. Although his work looks simple at first glance, his use of colour intrigues the audience and means they need to look deeper in his work. The rough textures in his paintings are a contrast to its sometimes clean and clinical appearance.
Katia Hickmer’s work is somehow compelling and attracts the viewer’s attention. The slightly sinister appearance of her work really shows her struggle with self-doubt and worries of mortality. The photography gives a feeling of isolation and makes the viewer feel uncomfortable, but set a contrast between the black & white and colour photography enhances this and I feel adds to the experience.

The Iconic Image

Preview night 6th July
Exhibition dates are 8th July till 2nd August 2013.
Synopsis

An iconic image is one that has acquired power through its use as an object of worship, due to religion, fashion, or popular culture. The status of the icon was the goal, the image would have been measured in terms of likeness to the source image of the icon. The majority of visual art works created would nest in tradition of great religious leaders in ancient Christianity, Buddhism and Hinduism. Religious devotees would hinder the art critic role and determine whether at under scrutiny the image stood as a close resemblance. Icons are timeless images and can represent a temporal event (the Flight Out of Egypt, etc). Icons maintain their currency by being continually updated to the present, by sustaining a constant relevance to now. The Byronic hero is a type of character named after the English Romantic poet Lord Byron and is a character who epitomises a moody and cynical defiance in his brow, misery in his heart, yet capable of deep and strong affection. This type of character is used fluently in Science – Fiction stories and Westerns. The Byronic icon is presented as the anti-hero, one that disobeys rules and takes matters into their own hands. Contemporary still life’s can direct light onto iconic objects of 21st century design. Objects that we are familiar with due to advertising and brand awareness. Still life’s that use iconic objects to direct attention to a particular era, like Art Deco for example will be selected. This exhibition will have a diverse array of art that translates to a dense multitude of iconic images ranging from people to places, objects to parodies of iconic art.

Faces: A Primordial Form

Exhibition dates: 27th May - 21st June 2013

curated by Lloyd Gill.

Synopsis

Our minds distinguish people from one to the next by their faces. Our cognition recognises a face and connects our memories to that person. Other body parts are filed as less important associations with that person. Through Millennia, artists within various tribes in Ancient culture have used the face in depicting the importance of a person. A face is central to distinguishing a tribe leader or King. The profile of a face has a rich history throughout Mespotoamia, Roman, Greek and Egyptian civilisation, where in ancient China the profile of the religious icon, Gautam Buddha, is always frontal and eyes either closed or semi-closed to portray deep meditation. Francis Bacon’s portraits are in a trajectory state of flux and tar ambiguous fragments of time, as the faces in his portraits look skewed or like gravity is tugging on them. One body of work of his, the Velazques’s portraits are so powerful. They are less on the trajectory of time and more about using the human face to express emotion his screaming Pope Innocent X, painted up to 43 times, are never forgotten once seen and will remain timeless in Contemporary society. George Condo’s faces also transcend the trajectory of time, some in a cubist manner of stylising a multitude of various views of the same face. Other works by Condo are cartoon – like and over emphasise attributes of the person, like; their nose varied to a minutely scaled down pinhead to elongated necks. This exhibition will feature art from artists who paint, draw, print, sculpt. Photograph faces. Their depictions of a face can be obscure to realist. There may be only a mouth or an ear used , but if effectively to transmit emotion they will be selected. There will be an essay that will discover the history of the face from ancient civilisations to modern contemporaries to accompany this exhibition.

The Materiality of Painting

Curated by Lloyd Gill

The essay for this exhibition is at the bottom of the press release.

Preview night 2nd March Exhibition dates are Monday 4th March - 29th March Synopsis

Painting can have a great deal of intensity as an object. Through the phenomenon of light, paint can recast its innate properties and become brighter or darker. Paint can register character as formidable as an actor’s improvisation. Application and duration ignite this character, which stands and barks at the viewer.!! All the art in this exhibition gestatesmaterials with application and duration.

By liquidating paint till it drips and flows, the artist has stripped paints natural inhibitors unarmed. Artists will be selected for testing paints limit by using heavily applied impasto using the gestural technique and for allowing thinned paint to run on its own path. Other materials have been introduced to further the structure paint can uphold.! !I will research into the art of Cy Twombly, Anselm Kiefer and Frank Auerbach and complete an essay to accompany the exhibition.

Selected artists;

Yvonne Jones Artist Statement:

Moved away from painting to video to ‘break out’. Currently using video with painting to explore ‘The senses have no future’ a quote from roboticist Hans Moravec. Have worked with medical practice to discover some implications for the living human of notions of the posthuman.

Tim Bailey Brief statement:

Tim Bailey is based at The Spacex Gallery in Exeter. He graduated from the University of Plymouth in 2007. His work is deeply influenced by Eastern aesthetics and perceptions of beauty, impermanence, the incomplete and the unknown. Drawing influence from the natural and man-made world, he pays special attention to the surface and fluidity of his paintings with suggestions of landscape (aerial and pictorial) and ‘the fleeting moment’. These deceptively physical panels express a need for human affiliation and a material humility.

Gillian Goodridge Artist Statement:

My paintings are embodiments of my responses to both my external environment and internal landscape of mind, memory and emotion. The concepts of transience, flux and the interconnectedness of all things are the driving forces behind my paintings and these ideas can be evidenced both formally and conceptually in the work I make.

Lukas Kasprowicz Artist Statement:

Art has been present in Lukas’ life from a very early age. During his architectural studies he began to experiment with painting encouraged and inspired by his grandfather. His passion for art has been continuously developing ever since. In London, he studied painting at Central St. Martins. Lukas works mostly with oils on canvases. The presence of human subject whether depicted with exaggeration or merely as avague reminiscence of a body is often an integral part of his works. He refuses to define his style as each one of his paintings is treated as an individual, unique piece: ‘Each time I stand in front of the easel, about to start a new painting, what I’m really standing in front of is another exciting journey full of challenges and the unknown. Every painting brings about unique experiences as each time my mind is freed from routine action and allowed to explore.’


AGNIESZKA PAKUŁA – STATEMENT:

She paints strong expressive pieces, which in their form and outcry stand opposed to the modern manner of idealization, present in advertising, mass media & the internet. Rather than creating new realities, she concentrates on humanities ambiguous, complicated nature.Through an expressive and naturalistic manner of painting, she calls out to our primal instincts and dormant beastliness, hidden in everyday life. Portraits and nude scenes are reflections of spiritual states, not simple images. Her works show both the spiritual element and the carnal one.

In her paintings she makes frequent use of fonts. Through use of quotations from literature or the subject’s own statements, she gives the work a broader context or directs the viewers thoughts in the correct direction. It is important how a well placed quote, or a specific type of font can change an images meaning.

Alison Johnson statement:

By expressing the power of light playing amongst the water drops, this artist shows the abstract, surreal side to the natural world. Her paintings follow a deep tradition which Johnson modernises and brings to a contemporary forefront.Colours sink below a piercing white surface as oceans and landscapes drift in and out of a sweeping hazy mist. The sky appears deep and brooding, the colours revealing a darkness that battles with the flashes of light. When shapes and figures do reveal themselves they appear lost and fragile against the infinite space of the world around. Such is the atmosphere contained in these works they could easily be viewed as pure abstractions, each detail vital enough to stand alone. Ephemeral, warm powerful and evocative she creates a sense of movement through colour, light and balance. Johnson’s delicate handling of the world she depicts around her has the power to not only move the viewer but to make a lasting impression. With a nod to the impressionist painters Johnson’s work has been likened to the great masters of our time such as Turner. Such high acclaim has guaranteed her a number of exhibitions within the UK and her work continues to reach clients on an international scale.

Val Wolstenholme Clay statement:

Val Wolstenholme Clay is an artist/designer living and working in London. After studying architecture she moved into the Film Industry as a Set Designer

She began to be commissioned to paint for films, commercials, interiors and now works from her studio on commercial and personal pieces.

Paintings are regularly selected for group exhibitions ( The National Portrait Gallery, The Royal Society of Portrait Painters,ING Discerning Eye Exhibition at The Mall Galleries,London) and studio visits are welcome.

Anne Gracia statement:

Anne Gracia throws the mask and we tend mirror. It reveals depicting a world that is different than ours, while his I feel in tune with her characters fragile balance, hanging over a dreary day it comes out of boredom like magic. Boldly, she lifted the veil which covered her pastel universe, and dared the unlikely alliances acrylic and chalk, material and transparency, respect and blur, distortion and grace.

It addresses, without land, the difficult subject of the difficulty of being, leaving the viewer the opportunity to venture by himself in the darkest regions of the soul. It does so with skill and finesse and lightness that we prove may have more weight than what is heavy.

Suzan Emine Kaube Statement:

Painting is the means of an artist to express emotions. External impressions, excitements, disturbances, every impact invading through the eye into the very interior of the soul: Troubles, hostilities, chaos, environmental imbalances, calamities, discrimination, loneliness. All of them leave traces, create internal pressure on the painter, and make him dynamically respond in the language of painting. Positive as well as negative reactions: Sometimes light-hearted, joyfully, strangely, sometimes full of grieve and depression, often aggressively, urging ahead: Closely corresponding to the artist’s instantaneous, personal condition. My pictures articulate these issues in the way, I experience them. They show up spontaneously from the subconscious and find their characteristic, unique expression in shape and colors.
