Stanley Greening & Kate Windibank

kate windibank and stanley greening exhibition poster

allēgoria, is a group exhibition by gallery artists, Stanley Greening and Kate Windibank.

Kate uses the inner and outer surfaces of the ceramic vessel to explore the concepts of repressed emotions, concealed truths, fragility and strength. The work is reminiscent of time-worn objects; shells or rocks eroded by the elements.  Their truths, once hidden, now revealed through the transformational nature of time.

Stanley’s oil pastel and pencil drawings present dark narratives and misdirection creating mischievous allegories, whilst his stark charcoal and carbon drawings are dense nest-like networks offering sinister worlds constructed of tangled ladders and ‘organic’ matter.

Both artists are concerned with surface, each pushing their materials beyond convention to create their own surprising results. From the complex surfaces created by oxides and glazes in Kate’s sculptures, to the obsessive, layered, textured detail in Stanley’s drawings, both command intimate scrutiny. And it’s through close exploration that you begin to unravel allēgoria.

SeaLand – Group Exhibition

SeaLand - a group exhibition

‘SeaLand’, A group exhibition by gallery artists, Gill Ayre, Karin Friedli, Anne Hignell and Judith Moule

Private View
2-5pm Saturday 10th August

 

Gill Ayre, Judith Moule, Karin Friedli and Anne Hignell, are all known for their landscape paintings, and bring their own unique expression, interpretations and responses to the theme of Sea and Land.

 

Anne Hignell, painter
Anne is a painter and lives and works in Hertfordshire.  She has been painting and drawing for over 25 years. Anne’s work is diverse in subject and application. Having concentrated on the human form for many years, she sees a natural progression in exploring other landscapes, both natural and placed, their shapes and forms, interconnecting lines, depth and space, their colour and light. Anne applies her mark making in an intuitive and expressive way, responding to the subject as well as to the unfolding image being created. Her interpretation tends towards semi abstraction and sometimes purer abstraction.  She enjoys using a mixture of medium including paint, charcoal, pastel, ink and collage to develop her work.

Karin Friedli
Karin is a contemporary landscape artist. The beauty of nature inspires her, capturing the intensity of the light at different times of the day and exploring the varying weather patterns and changing seasons. Her expressive style tries to catch an impression of the landscape, its mood and energy from invigorating to tranquil, the unique time and place as well as a reflection of the fragility of nature. Karin likes to form an impression without focusing on every detail by using loose movements, using her bare fingers and hands, as well as palette knives, splattering, scraping, rags and sometimes a paintbrush. My aim is to hopefully evoke the energy of the landscape in order to capture the imagination of the viewer.

Judith Moule
Judith Moule is a printmaker and painter living and working in Hertfordshire who was trained at the University of Hertfordshire, Watford College and the Prince of Wales Trust, has exhibited in the U.K. and has successfully taught in schools.  Judith’s work is about mark making and records the texture and traces of the landscape, a human experience of the land, rather than its material presence. She tends to use a limited palette, which enables her to concentrate on the issues being presented, whilst the subtleties in the change of tones create their own harmonic rhythm, and add spatial qualities which are important to her.

Gill Ayre
Gill is an established local artist, primarily a painter, working in oils, acrylics and mixed media on canvas. She is a Fine Art graduate of the University of Bedfordshire, and alumni of Digswell Arts, and now works in a shared studio at Langley End near Hitchin. Her work is an emotional and contemplative response to landscape, and is primarily process driven, allowing a semblance of landscape to emerge out of loose and expressive applications of paint. She has exhibited and sold work through a variety of events, Art Fairs, solo and group exhibitions, and commissions.

Graham Matthews – Solo Exhibition

‘Persistence of Change’, Solo exhibition by gallery artist, Graham Matthews

Graham A. Matthews interest in fine art photography builds upon 40 years freelance experience shooting everything from sport to fashion.

The core of his current work centres around examining ‘perceived truths and harsh realities’, whether that’s photographing the poor conditions of rural India, or discovering the hidden realities all around us. Influenced by such artists as Joan Fontcuberta, Susan Hiller, Picasso, Man Ray, Salvador Dali and Sebastião Salgado, Graham’s work seeks to challenge established beliefs and our preconceived ideas of life, death and reality.

His latest work examines the ‘persistence of change’ highlighting the toxic relationship we have with our existence and how our lives are regularly being transformed at an unprecedented pace. Whether that’s the environmental damage we’re doing to our mother earth or the constant pressure on individuals struggling to keep up with societies changing values or our personal struggles to ward off our inevitable demise, the persistence of change is all around us, permeating into every aspect of our lives.

‘This solo exhibition by gallery artist, Adrian Marden’

A new solo show from Adrian Marden who is continuing an exploration of everyday objects that each have a story to tell. The new collection of prints and posters support observations that are often interesting, occasionally illuminating and at times concerning. This show, therefore, provides food for thought for anyone who wants their art to say more and who is keen to explore ideas that try to lessen our impact on the world.
