Artist Nick Holdsworth breaks the mold. Printing 1000’s of tiny images onto paper, embossing this on to board before spray painting the final image. Using this pixilation technique encourages the work to look almost 3D.

Day in Margate – Tracey Emin’s infamous “Bed”

The weather was cold and wet, not worth staying home for, so, little trip down Margate seem liked a good idea. The white angular Turner Contemporary, is a stark contrast to the historic Margate seafront and light years away from the Dreamland amusement park at the other end of the prom.

The Contemporary’s current exhibition, pairing Tracey Emin’s infamous “bed” with original Turner seascapes, seemed incongruous. Until you remember, Turner was as eccentric and controversial in his day, as Emin and the rest of the Young British Art movement were in the nineties.

On it’s own in the middle of the Gallery floor, Turners hung behind, “the bed” looked a little like something that had been dropped from the sky. Dirty underwear and rumpled sheets, empty bottles, cigarette stubs and condoms, yellowing a little and showing their twenty years of age.

It was like a story part told, the action stopped unfinished. Surprisingly, the Turners have the same quality, sea frozen, stopped as the waves crashed. Two moments in time, captured, centuries apart.

The end of the story came from Emin’s video narrative of the bed’s reconstruction, it brought humanity I had not previously seen. “The bed” was her chaotic world and it’s conception changed that world, catapulting her into the art world’s spotlight.

For Emin, twenty years on, she is voluntarily dry, celibate and non smoking. What ever you may think of it as art, it is possible that “the bed” saved at least one life.

Bring your home to life! The Art of Ruth Mulvie.

The way Ruth Mulvie demonstrates her love and understanding of paint is refreshing! Inspired by Pierre Bonnard and perhaps the more commonly known Peter Doig, she brings a lavish quality to the sunset villas, wildlife and stylized people that she depicts on canvas. Brush strokes are clean, each plant and building are structured in such a way that mimic that quality of art nouveau.

Surrounded by exciting new cultures, experiences and environments, Ruth Mulvie uses her own photography, or images from magazine and published editorial contents to make a collage. After much time adjusting compositions she will then use this collage as reference to paint her canvases. At first glance they remind me of the work of David Hockney, however if you look closely there is more of an agenda to each painting. Filled with surreal connotations (wildlife wandering aimlessly by the poolside) Ruth adds inaccurate shadows and perspective to each painting giving the viewer a sense of dream like narrative with each painting.

Ruth now settled in Brighton is working with our gallery to showcase a range of limited editions and original work. Limited editions are modest in size and originals large and comforting of scale.  Real statement paintings to brighten up your home.

Aerodynamic engineering crossed with animal and plant. Exciting new sculptures by Adam Warwick Hall

Herringkell MK1

We’d like to introduce you to our new artist, bronze practitioner, Adam Warwick Hall.

We’re really excited to have these pieces in the gallery! Exceptionally crafted with integrity and fine challenging details. There is so much depth to these works – they contemplate not only artifice, but also the natural versus the man-made.

Adam has an incredible understanding of the mechanics of birds and fish. With this knowledge he crafts a unique style, a mix of Aerodynamic, animal and plant.

Below, a modest preview of these gorgeous pieces.

Ground Effect

Fascinated by aircraft, animals and plants from an early age, Adam trained as a sculptor from 1989 to 1991. On graduating he immediately started work as a sculptor and model maker for the Film and TV industry at Shepperton and Pinewood Studios. He then progressed to specialist work with exhibition and aerospace companies creating one-off pieces, which other trades were not able to make due to their complex curves and diverse materials. In 2010, after 20 years of making all types of shapes and forms in a range of materials for a wide variety of people and companies, Adam set up his own studio near Bristol. Inspired by aerodynamic, organic and animal forms his work as an artist has always been a mixture of biology and mechanisation. Adam’s love of aerodynamic forms fuels his concepts; fusing mechanised structures with organic forms to create his pieces

The Gallery is showcasing furthers works in our studio. Come and see these fabulous pieces in the flesh!
