IMPRINT – a group exhibition

audrey, victoria and anja exhibition

IMPRINT

A group exhibition by Audrey Imber, Anja Penger-Onyett and Victoria Johns

These artists are linked by their love of the landscape and the forms and patterns found in the natural world.

 

VICTORIA

how will it be - by victoria    altered vision by victoria

You could say Victoria has a slight obsession with looking at the world in an obscure way. She focuses on new ways of seeing the world around her by flattening out our 3D world. “Whenever possible I’ll grab the window seat in an aeroplane so I can snap away at the birds-eye views passing me by.”

This privileged view point in the sky gives her intriguing aerial views that flatten out man-made features, in turn highlighting what nature has to offer. Victoria is an abstract painter and printmaker, mark making with mixed media is key to depicting details of these views that she enjoys, scale, space, shape, colour, pattern and texture.

 


ANJA

The inspiration for Anja’s thrown, stoneware comes from the shapes, colours and detail seen in nature. Her ever popular seed heads and garden decorations are fired at high temperatures so that they can be enjoyed in the garden all year round. Her latest projects are hand built rectangular vases on which she uses a variety of marks and glazes which can also represent abstract landscapes. Her ongoing exploration and experimentation with glazes and decoration techniques means Anja’s work is unique and very collectable.

 


AUDREY

Mark making, colour and texture are the key elements in Audrey’s landscape paintings. She works in acrylic and oil paint to give the viewer an ‘essence’ of a place rather than a figurative representation. Her work is dynamic and gives a sense of spontaneous impression.

Post-Pop Art – a solo exhibition by Martin Langston

Post-Pop Art – a solo exhibition by Martin Langston

Contemporary Post-Pop Artist

“Artistically adventurous and a creative maverick. Out of the hundreds of artists I’ve interviewed, one of the most interesting. The evolution of this refreshing talent is to the benefit of the art world”
Sandra Smith – Freelance Writer.

Martin was born at the start of ‘the greatest decade in the history of mankind’ ( Danny the Dealer ) and is in many ways a product of the 60s and 70s.

“I grew up on a diet of the Beano, Whizzer and Chips, Tom and Jerry, the Beatles, England winning a World Cup, Slade, Morecambe and Wise, Tootie Frooties and Cresta (it was frothy man). I was just a defenseless kid, unable to prevent this riot of pretty colours, humour and popular culture from working its way into my fledgling psyche.

Most of my family worked in the print industry. Watford was a print town and my grandfather worked at Odhams Press where they printed “Power Comics” called Pow, Smash and Wham. They used to find their way into our family home in Chipperfield. I read these comics and an idea slowly formed that I might like to draw comics as a job when I was a grown up. That led me to Art School to try and learn how. Just around this time Hippies were being phased out and replaced with Punks, and a Punk Rock band called the Sex Pistols released their first LP. The cover looked like a torn up copy of the News of the World floating in a puddle of Cresta. Right away that imagery struck a chord. I understood where that was coming from.

It was at Watford School of Art at the end of the 70’s that they endeavoured to teach me how to draw and paint. But I also learned something else. I learned about Pop Art. There were actual artists painting pictures from comic books on canvas and they were hanging in proper art galleries …

Beyond Colour – a solo exhibition by Naini

Beyond Colour – a solo exhibition by Naini

Beyond Colour is an exhibition of art work that attempts to lead the viewer beyond the creative expression and into the invisible or the formless. So, how exactly does one paint something that is formless? And what does it look like? It is impossible to paint that which is formless! The universe is that formless which is alive and ever expanding. In art this has been expressed through purest expression in minimalist oils but can also be experienced in more relatable paintings like a simple landscape, a drawing or an illustration. Our physical world is an expression of this very formless breathing expanding universe. To find out more about how to go beyond colour and form, visit us at Wynd Gallery from 22 – 30 Aug, where you will be shown ‘how-to-look’ in just a few steps. This method can be applied to enhance any experience like sipping tea or even a stroll.

‘Distraction’ – a solo exhibition by Sandy Campbell

Distraction – a solo exhibition by Sandy Campbell

Distraction – immersing yourself in anything that you enjoy and that takes your full attention. Just one of many recommended strategies to cope with isolation during the Covid-19 lockdown. Created at a time when making art of any kind seemed a monumental challenge, Sandy Campbell subsequently did find solace in the sanctuary of her studio. This new body of work is both playful and experimental in its approach, allowing the artist to fully escape into a world of colour, texture and surface. It is our hope that this exhibition will take you on a similar journey and give you, the viewer, your very own moments of distraction.

Sandy Campbell is an abstract painter whose work is firmly rooted in her experience of the declining urban landscape. The abandonment and decay surrounding her first studio in Luton influenced the development of the highly textured and complex surfaces that she creates, as well as inspiring her 3D pieces that use recycled materials.

‘I Care Campaign’ – a solo exhibition by Adrian Marden

‘I Care Campaign’ a solo exhibition by Adrian Marden

Adrian Marden’s exhibition launches the “I CARE CAMPAIGN”

The virus pandemic has raised many questions about the way we have been doing things, and the campaign’ is being developed to help build awareness of the ever topical need for care and consideration. ‘I Care’ offers a range of products each associated with a contemporary concern. Each artefact displays a QR link which takes the user to a website where individual commentaries are developed. The web comments provide concise facts and expert opinion on a particular concern designed to help foster informed discussion.

Choosing an object, wearing the item or displaying the image should prompt others to engage with it. Each person therefore starts their own campaign, taking small steps to ‘Spread the Word‘ and create a better society.

Hope you can help.

Adrian
