What’s New | ‘The Inside Space’, Masters of Etching & More
From etching mastery to landscape photography and the queens of collage, have a peek at our exciting exhibition line-up for the coming months
The Inside Space
We are delighted to unveil ‘The Inside Space’, a brand new exhibition room on the lower floor of our Ealing gallery, showcasing beautiful prints, paintings and ceramics in a rolling series of shows. We kick off the month of July with the atmospheric landscape photography of Alex Arnaoudov, alongside figurative sculpture from Alison Coaten.
In August we have new work from an artist fresh to our roster, the acclaimed Dublin-born painter and printmaker Stephen Lawlor, followed in the first two weeks of September by the artist and illustrator Gregori Saavedra.
And in November we will be exhibiting a series of New York-inspired oil on panel paintings from painter-printmaker Clare Grossman, with contemporary ceramic wall installations and vessels from Sotis. Then in the early part of 2019 we will be staging a joint show of paintings by contemporary British artists David Cottingham and Iona Stern. Watch this (inside) space!
Semi-surrealist printmaker Martin Langford brings together his intricate mezzotint etchings and blackly comic commentaries on the state of the world for a major solo show this autumn. Martin, who studied printmaking at Central St Martins College of Art, says: “My work is about the environment, about pollution, the way we live and about man’s collective greed. I think people are tired of being lectured to about ‘green’ issues but they do still care – with a bit of humour, I believe you can relay a message simply and effectively.” September 21 – October 14. More about Martin here.
The wonderful works of British painter-printmaker Louise Davies round off an exciting year. Louise, whose art explores landscape, colour and line, will be showing a range of her monoprints, etchings and paintings in a wide-ranging solo exhibition. Louise’s art depicts nature and the way the light and weather affects the feelings of the day through the use of translucent colour and fluid, impromptu lines, taking inspiration from artists including Rothko and Miro. November 2 – 25. Browse Louise’s works here.
Kings and Queens of Collage
Coming up in 2019 we have a thrilling new group show from collage superstars Maria Rivans, Bonnie and Clyde and Joe Webb. From Maria’s intricate, heady portraits of Hollywood iconography to the beautiful and bizarre cityscapes of Bonnie and Clyde (aka printmaker and mixed media artist Steph Burnley) and Joe Webb’s politically charged prints, it’s going to pack a considerable punch.
