RE-POSE

A group exhibition of four artists whose work explores aspects of the human condition.

Malcolm Glover  

The photographs in his Steam Baths series were taken over a 10-day period at The New Docklands Steam Bath in Canning Town, London.

Malcolm’s work has been published and exhibited both internationally and throughout the U.K. His work has been purchased for public and private collections.

His photographic work has two strands to it. The first side of his work is documentary based, which encompasses diverse communities and subjects in their urban and rural environments.

Current ongoing work uses digital technology to produce large-scale constructed prints. The prints are comprised of multiple images shot throughout the day and then stitched together to create a single image of the subject matter.

Lydia Moon 

“Throughout my artwork I try to capture a sense of movement and depth. Using layers upon layers of paint and wax, with each layer bringing forth a perfect dance between paint and paper, I try and convey a controlled sense of movement. My paintings are primarily abstract figures, capturing figures dancing across the canvas.

When working on my sculptures I also try to portray the same sense of beating energy. My work includes dynamic, sweeping brush strokes of water colour, ink and wax that characterize much of my artwork. 

Working in my studio I often work in a meditative state working on many paintings and sculptures at a time, this allows me to work with multiple mediums allowing me to visualise and manifest various dimensional creativity all at one time. Connecting myself within a world of paint and materials.”

Alistair Kendry 

Alistair studied Fine Art at Corsham: Bath Academy and Postgraduate studies at the Slade School of Fine Art.

His work explores the transience nature of self -identity and the semiotics of dislocation through his paintings in mixed media and gold leaf. He has work in private and international collections and has had extensive exhibitions in London and the South –East.

Charlotte Lambert-Gorwyn

This series aims to capture the unconscious movements we make in our sleep, with a single exposure lasting from sunrise till the subject wakes up.  In a society saturate with images and a sense of self awareness, I felt a draw to creating something less controlled in a space usually kept private.


 

Tutti-Frutti

Tutti-Frutti Exhibition includes an eclectic mix of 4 artists living and making work in Hastings and St Leonards.  Each artist explores and taps into the vibrancy and energy within the local area as part of their inspiration to make work, and as a group each artist has responded to local influences and experimental ways of working.

The fab four include Katia Giordanella a 3D ceramicist, Carrie Warrior a print maker, Mara Garatti a jeweller/precious metal worker and Wendy Smith a painter.  Each having a unique perspective and curiosity, exploring the ideas of tradition combined and contrasting with contemporary practice. 

Researching and respecting where they live, embracing the seasonal influences, the constant element of flux and quirks that seaside towns bring with the varying times of year.  The appeal of the attractions with the constant stream of summer day trippers seduced by the sea, fish & chips, arcades, fishing boats and pier to mention a few.
