Currently posting work out for "Anything to Declare" the premier exhibition of CURVE Gallery Newcastle, in NSW Australia.
CURVE have had a gallery in Liverpool for several years and gallery manager,
Lisa Who, is now working towards creating a tandem space where international exchange and contemporary art practice can evlove.
Curve will be exhibiting the work of artists that are profiled by the gallery in the UK, launching the concept of the space on the 27th of April to a brand new audience.
Curve is an independent exhibition and studio space, collaborating with and promoting work by emerging and mid-career artists. Curve’s vision is to support, engage and expose artists by providing destination places that offer a direct link between Australia and Europe.
The creative projects they devise are designed to comment on independent global curatorial practice and the journey of objects. The exhibition is a collaboration between Curve and Liverpool & London based artists working across disciplines that include film, sculpture, photography, printmaking & artist books. Exhibiting artists include Robyn Woolston, David Penny, Elizabeth Willow, Lisa Who, Hannah Fray, Hormazd Narielwalla, Emma Gregory, Graeme Williams, Ed Bruce, Pauline Hughes, Gill Curry, Liquid Sandwich, Colette Whittington, Ann Beare and Amanda Oliphant, and me !
My display will be formed from a selection of my Liverpool Series Prints from 2009 and my Crosby Beach enamel on copper panel set, created in 2011.
I started working on this theme in 2008 as part of an ongoing, self initiated body of work. My intrigue was the changing cityscape, and the interaction of old and new as the area of Liverpool One was being built.
The prints aim to project a sense of place, a theme that is echoed in the Crosby Beach enamel study. The beach at Crosby is the home of Another Place, a prominent visiting destination in my local area.
Additionally, several prints pick up on graffiti and poster slogans which highlight the humour and maverick spirit of one of my favourite cities, Liverpool.
I like the idea of this series travelling from place to place and I'm delighted to be involved in the promotion of a new adventure.
Wishing the very Best of Luck to Lisa & her team !
Opening 27th April 2012
CURVE Gallery 37 Watt Street, Newcastle 2300, NSW Australia.
The Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, was buzzing with activity today.
Lucky print enthusiasts got the chance to hear Emma Gregory, print lecturer and manager of the Bluecoat Print Workshops give an informative talk through the stunning exhibition, The Art Books of Henri Matisse.
Photography in the exhibition wasn't allowed but it's worth having a peek at the Liverpool Museum flicker pages HERE to see how the show looks.
Welcome to my posts. Here I add notes about events / interests / developmental work / and various inspiring stuff that catches my attention.
