ARTWEEKS 2015: 9th - 30th May

 

Emmie van Biervliet

Richard Fox

Bee Bartlett

 

Bee Bartlett

With her free-spirited approach to her painting, informed by her love of travel, Bee Bartlett has created a strong collection of work inspired by her recent trip around Northern Spain and Southern France. Taking her camper-van, travelling from place to place, she observes and sketches, absorbing the atmosphere, combining a range of materials, such as gold and silver leaf, chalk paints and acrylics. The result are paintings filled with light and texture, alive with detail – shop signage, windows and doors juxtaposed with paintings exploring the mysterious emptiness of an Atlantic coastal seascape.

Richard Fox

Richard’s sculpture continues to draw admiration from so many of our visitors. The dynamic, fluid shapes and forms are an exploration of movement, and flow; like their titles, inspired by music, their form is expressive yet rhythmic. By the ability to rotate the sculpture, each piece is responsive to the viewer’s touch.

Richard began working consistently in sculpture in 2005, following a visit to Barbara Hepworth’s garden in Cornwall. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally since 2008, and he has also completed numerous commissions.

Emmie van Biervliet

Emmie van Biervliet’s paintings like Bee’s are inspired by what she finds on her travels – but she is particularly interested in the life of buildings, and their inhabitants. A trip to Cuba is what first sparked her interest; seeing once-grand buildings now crumbling, patched up by whatever the person living there could find seemed to tell the story behind the life of the house and the city, from past generations who had once lived there, to the current inhabitants. Emmie’s latest work has moved a little closer to home, with paintings of the typical stuccoed West London town houses of Ladbroke Grove and Notting Hill.

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.
