The exhibitors are Sue Fewings, Sinead Le Blond, Carole Adams, Denise Bottali, Fern Sherratt-Wells, Kerri Baker, Kyra Scott-Nixon, Mel Chennell, Leilah Leask, Laura Drury, Natasha Hill, Kerry Keys, Christine McNaught, Janet Webzell and Maureen Tong-Ralphs.
In this digital mediated age, we live our existences under intense accumulation of riddles and encoded information. The question arises, are we losing contact with our actual timed experience? How do our senses respond and how do we come to understand identity in the face of this experience? The exhibition brings together different approaches to exploring the contemporary play on imagery with the theme of encapsulated codes and readability.
The artworks bring an ambivalence to the exhibition operating against the continuous cycle of unknown imagery in contemporary culture. These images do not reject their input but hope to establish a point of which to observe this commentary on imagery, rather than exclude.
‘Fact: Everything I Once Knew’ brings together 6 second and third year BA Fine Art students at University for Creative Arts, exploring visual ideas around observation, identity , process, memory, senses, entropy and time.
PRIVATE VIEW SATURDAY 20TH OCTOBER 6-9PM ALL WELCOME!
Sunset Flip denotes a finishing move in the sport of entertainment wrestling where one wrestler acrobatically pins the opponent to the canvas. The sense that theater that unfolds during this sequence is something that Doris Day, Leslie Farago and Ben Sanders all bring to the walls and floor of Joseph Wales. Growing up in the 90’s, all three artists create an atmosphere within the gallery where analogue assemblage, fluro hues and industrial patterns capture an era of discovery and escapism. Paintings of retro wrestlers do battle with the bruised hinterlands with an over sized sketchbook. All the while those watchful eyes and collage limbs peer on, waiting for the moment of gravity defying drama of the sunset flip.
Vicki Griggs and Kevin J Malone, owners of The Little Art Gallery in Broadstairs, will show their amazing paintings. Vicki will introduce her new style paintings of marine worlds and Kevin will show his Africa themed works.
Photographer and relentlessly travelling flight attendant Heidie Lee Locke will take you on a journey across the planet, from Jordan to Antarctica.
