[the quality or state of being adjacent, or of lying near, bordering]
Adjacency is a series of paintings and mixed media works based on the witness statements, maps and photographs from the Saville Inquiry into the events of Bloody Sunday 1972. The exhibition examines the uncertain relation between topography and cartography,
between narrative and the event, within contested historiography.
Derval Tubridy is Senior Lecturer at Goldsmiths, University of London. Born in Cork, Ireland, she studied at Trinity College Dublin. Her practice is mixed media painting located at the intersection between language, materiality
and process. Recent projects examine painting as forensic practice, a means through which textual and visual material used as evidence in public inquiries inform our affective understanding of past and current events.
Advanced Contemporary Portraiture and Figurative in Encaustic and Mixed Media run by Lora Murphy
3rd - 9th April 2017
YouTube clip here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUOXFUwhq1w
This fast paced, workshop will be 5 full days of tuition, including a contemporary portraiture segment and then branching out into mixed media, with all kinds of materials including lots of new ways of working with encaustic ... The portraiture segment of
the course will also include ways of working with alternative materials, working on canvas and jute, combining casein paint and gesso with encaustic.
For the other two days, we will work together heart and brain storming, using ink, paper, pours and collage on board or on canvas, giving ourselves permission to be as wild and free as we want with our painting .. this will be an intuitive way of working
and we will support and encourage each other to reach new levels with the work ..
All materials are provided, but you are welcome to bring along anything you particularly like, including ephemera and collage materials plus music that inspires you ..
Everyone is invited to do morning pages in the weeks leading up to the workshop, as a way of igniting inspiration .. but that is up to you
no one is compelled to do it.
Tea, coffee and snacks will be available all day and you can either bring a sandwich or pop out for food at lunchtime ..
Hours generally are 10-5 but often my students stay much later again, up to you!
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
[ALLOY] 001: Inaugural
Exhibition PV Thursday 3rd Nov 6:00 - 9:00pm
Fri 4th - Sun 6th Nov 12:00 - 6:00pm
Mon 7th - Sun 13th Nov 12:00 - 6:00pm
Five South London based artists form the working collective
. Alex Simpson, Laura Hudson, Lauren Ilsley, Jessie Sheffield and Rachel Ara span a variety of media but connect via an interlacing web of concerns around materiality and the body’s relevance in our post-industrial, digital age. Collectively
questioning how reality is determined by the man-made world in which we live.
[ALLOY] 001:Inaugural will be [ALLOY]’s first collective show and brings together sculptural works by five artists expanded into dimensions often associated with cinema. In each work time, light, motion, sound or information become a fourth
element, integral to or expanding upon the physical dimensions of form. Taking 3D into 4D and narrative into a spatial, physical experience.
Alex Simpson’s corporeal clay form creates an interior space that affects the body in proximity, the surrounding air and therefore sound are disrupted as the vibrations surrounding us are altered by its presence while Laura Hudson’s Free Fall suspends a
body weight of sand in a single rusting chamber, a sand timer in which only the past and present are visible and time will run out. In Lauren Ilsley’s Empyrean Alignment no.1 a static surrogate body is disrupted by the artificial motion of light; the power
to control our environment is in question as is the influence of the immaterial on the material. Jessie Sheffield’s carefully engineered cylinders act as a prism through which to reframe the subconscious references and material assumptions that make up what
we perceive to be reality. In Rachel Ara’s This Much I’m Worth, data is mined from the internet and fed to algorithmic endorsers that calculate the sculpture’s own value. Displayed in real time on cold cathode tubes the monetary value is surrounded by the
gaudy bright lights of neon.
Alex Simpson studied Illustration at Brighton University and Ceramics at the Royal College of Art.
Laura Hudson studied Environmental Art at Glasgow School of Art, Moving Image at Central St.Martins and has a background in film and media arts curation.
Lauren Ilsley studied Arts at Nottingham Trent and Ceramics at the Royal College of Art.
Jessie Sheffield studied Fine Art at The Byam Shaw School of Art, Glass at The Royal College of Art and has a background in Horticulture and Landscaping.
Rachel Ara studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths, furniture making in Devon and has a background in computer systems design. These five artists have exhibited individually nationally and internationally.
