THE LANDSCAPES

An evocation of the spiritual impact of light on the landscapes of Dorset, Sussex, Suffolk & The Balearics. "There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it." Edith Wharton

THE ABSTRACTS

An abstract exploration of the Aurora Borealis or the Dance of the Spirits. 'Their appeal is to the imagination by the suggestion of something wholly spiritual.' Robert Falcon Scott on The Aurora

JJ's paintings reflect the transient impact of light on the landscape capturing the colour transformations it creates throughout the seasons. Her work is inspired by the landscape, the natural world and the effect this has on the human spirit. These elements inspire her work capturing colour, emotion and life force.

ALEX EVANS

PRIVATE VIEW: 14 SEPTEMBER 2017 6.30 | 9.00pm

Alex Evans’ obsessively hand drawn geometric shapes and complex patterns manipulate established traditions of mathematical space in order to depict hybrid architectural biological systems and topologies of the imagined city.

Informed by twentieth century architectural and urban planning theories and inspired by recurring fractal configurations in nature, the resulting collection of painstakingly intricate pen and ink drawings deploy an illusory sense of scale and an unreal interplay between dimensions to manifest pristine graphic cityscapes as dense miniature networks of imagination and potentiality. 

ABOUT ALEX EVANS: 

Allex originally trained for a BA in Drama at The University of Hull and and MA in Visual Language of Performance at Wimbledon School of Art.  His work has been exhibited nationally in galleries including MK Gallery, Art16 and the Anise Gallery.  His award-winning international projects include multi-disciplinary collaborations and residencies in Australia, Japan, the Maldives and across Europe.  He lives and works in London.

LAURA SCOTT

Laura Scott's practice is an investigation of form; an exploration of balance between positive and negative space, presence and absence. She works in groups or series, each exploring a set of shapes that differs slightly from the last. Each series is a systematic exploration of the combinations and compositions that can be created within self-imposed parameters. 

Scott's upcoming exhibition is an exploration of ‘possibilities from limitations’ using just one geometric shape as the starting point. Drawing on principals from Minimalist Architecture, this work uses a basic geometric form, simple materials and repetition to represent a sense of order. 

The exhibition will be sponsored by

  • Capital Models for the laser cutting of the MDF components
  • Siecle Paint for the selected colour palette
  • GF Smith for paper
