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.
Visit the show and find out ….
Can objects spy on us?
Why are new clothes causing concern?
Are some products racist?
Who still uses sweatshops?

 

Adrian is having an open day on 11th May, so do pop along and meet the artist.

Some Lively Marks and a Touch of Glass

‘Some Lively Marks and a Touch of Glass’

Exhibition by Wynd Gallery Artists,  Audrey Imber and Opal Seabrook

The Wynd Gallery, The Wynd, Letchworth, Herts SG6 3EN

2nd – 9th February 2019

Private view:  Friday 1st February 2019 6pm – 9pm

Opal’s is inspired from her childhood, comics and nature, and from how things are made and work. She loves looking for illusions and magnification in nature and replicates it within her fused glass art, using a variety of techniques to develop each piece with design and refining processes between every kiln firing.

Audrey captures the moment and atmosphere of a place and describes to the viewer how the place feels through gesture, texture, mark making and colour. The landscape is more than just scenery, it is made up of layers of history, layers of geology, seasons and weather.

These two artist’s work are unified by their love of light, colour and depth. Opal embraces the properties of glass producing high gloss pieces that soak up light giving a natural glow to the work and purity and depth to the colours.

Audrey’s paintings display a mastery of colour and depth. Brush marks, smears and scratches add textures and form that teases the light across the surface and captures the landscape in their true rugged state. On closer inspection, these landscapes reveal an abstract world as colour and mark making dance across the canvas.

10th– 17th November 2018

Opens Saturday 10th November 2018

I like to work in a series where the explorations evolve through experimentation, play and accident, and I often revisit and rework aspects previously encountered. This maximizes the possibilities of the theme and the sequences are mostly as important as any single piece.

The most recent paintings are predominantly on a smallish, intimate scale which enables a faster way of working where more alternatives can be developed in the time frame. The colour is deliberately none naturalistic mostly using strong hues to heighten contrasts.

Evolving from small sketchbook preparatory studies the works are more concerned with figure/ground configurations than with literal representation.
