LUCY BAINBRIDGE | FERMATA

PRIVATE VIEW: 20 APRIL 2017  |  6.30 - 9.OOpm

London is a a city that is constantly undergoing change and renovation, it is one of the biggest building sites in Europe. Lucy's screen prints allow us the opportunity to pause and reflect; on our place in the city and  the way in which the architecture impacts on our life. We witness moments that might ordinarily be missed, practice being still.

Using photography as a starting point, Lucy captures the London skyline; architectural structures, refections of a building in a window. Digitally manipulating the images, the detail is stripped out, the bare bones are left behind leaving the image barely recognisable. 

The nature of the artistic process means that each print is slightly different due to the nature in which the artworks are made  Each of the prints are made by screen printing onto graphite dust, then each one is hand drawn onto with pen and screen printed over.

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.

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.
