April 2nd - 14th May 2016
Hardy House Gallery, Box
We are pleased to announce our first collaboration with Hardy House Gallery in Box, Wiltshire. Working with artist/owner, Nina Roberts our first show in this stunning contemporary exhibition space opens on April 2nd. Three artists interpret the human form using photography painting, drawing and prints.
New gallery artist, ceramicist Justine Allison, works solely with hand built porcelain - creating semi-functional pieces. Her work addresses the boundaries between function and decoration. She looks at objects that are used on a daily basis like the form of a jug, and curates pieces that move away from function and are more concerned with the aesthetic and the visual. The Audrey Blackman porcelain she uses is fired to 1260 degrees in an electric kiln, using industrial glazes and velvet underglaze. Justine studied ceramics at Camberwell College of Art, graduating in 1998. She is based in Wales where she is a visiting lecturer at Carmarthen College. She has exhibited widely, both nationally and internationally.
We are delighted to be stocking our first range of everyday functional pots and vessels by Louisa Taylor. Louisa's ceramic practice is based in south-east London where she produces her ranges for shops, galleries and collectors in the UK and internationally. She is a Senior Lecturer on the BA (Hons)/MDes 3D Design and Craft course at the University of Brighton and a short course tutor at West Dean College, Chichester. She is a professional member of the Crafts Potters Association and Contemporary Applied Arts, London. In 2012, Louisa undertook a six-month post (January-June) as artist in residence at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. She is the author of Ceramics: Tools and Techniques for the Contemporary Maker, published in 2011.
One of the collaborative portraits of Annie Lennox acquired for the Scottish National Portrait Gallery permamanent collection was recently displayed at the introduction to a new exhibition there Collecting Now. Chosen to hang next to a large Ken Currie work, as the curator explains…
"The Ken Currie work is a large and powerful painting. Not many works could hold their own next to it but the photograph of Annie is really strong and looks terrific in this position. It is hung so it can be seen alone at a distance from the far end of the gallery." May through to 20 September 2015.
After the success of his THESE DARK WOODS and other work exhibition earlier in the year, Allan is producing a limited edition print of his acclaimed painting, WITNESS. This will be available from December 2015.
