ARTWEEKS 2015: 9th - 30th May

Emmie van Biervliet

Richard Fox

Bee Bartlett

 

We’re delighted to announce our line-up for this year’s Artweeks Festival Exhibition, which opens on Friday 9th May. Bee Bartlett, Richard Fox and Emmie van Biervliet are all Oxfordshire-based artists, who enjoy reputations around the UK for their work in sculpture, mixed media and painting.

Emmie van Biervliet is best known for her paintings inspired by her extensive travels. This year however, she’s looking a little closer to home.  ‘I have been thinking about being drawn to looking through doors and windows, discovering those creative labyrinths, which is what Art-Weeks is all about,’ she explains.

Bee Bartlett, is also influenced by her travels, as well as being inspired by her home-town of Oxford. At the end of 2014, she took a few weeks off to explore Southern France, travelling into Catalonia in Northern Spain. Bee’s typical style is expressive, using experimental marks and textures, incorporating materials like silver leaf and collage.

Richard Fox works in bronze, stone and British native hardwoods, with sycamore being a favourite. His sculptures in wood are fluid, often taking coiling or ribbon-like forms, and can be rotated by hand, allowing the viewer a direct and physical connection with the artwork, choosing the perspective from which to view it.   He was and remains inspired by Barbara Hepworth, whose work he saw in St Ives in 2005. 
Richard lives and works in Oxfordshire and he has been showing work nationally and internationally since 2008.

Keep an eye out for further updates on the new work!

 

Now on Show: Steven MacIver

Keeping within our abstract theme for the moment, we've got beautiful new paintings by Steven MacIver now on show. Much of Steven's work is an exploration of spaces, both interior and exterior, described by the lines he 'excavates' using intersecting lines and planes. 

These stunning new works are a continuation of study and exploration of Steven's native Orkney Islands, in particular the ancient and mysterious standing stones at Ring of Brodgar. Steven has turned his attention to this theme after many years of living away from home, finding the mental space to observe these sites with an objective eye.

Currently he lives and works in Oxfordshire, and is working on private commissions and towards a solo show in New York.

'Venice' by Robin Pickering

There's a beautiful new collection of pastel drawings by Robin Pickering. These smaller works are a lovely interpretation of the soft lights of an atmospheric city, where Robin makes regular trips. '"From the moment I first arrived in Venice – stepping onto a vaporetto on the Grand Canal one February evening during the carnival – I have been bewitched by this extraordinary city.  Whenever I go there something stirs in me, ' he explains.
