Touch Me
Very Valerie Ellis
14-24 December 2020

Espacio Gallery is proud to host the debut solo exhibition of Australian artist, Very Valerie Ellis. Recently arrived back in London from Brisbane, Australia, Valerie has been painting a new collection of works: Touch Me. Using only the elements of colour and brushstroke, the paintings are intended to move the viewer through expressive gestures, lines and texture. If you like abstract-expressionism, this show is for you.

In making the 11 paintings that comprise the show in the main gallery, the artist sought to “move the viewer through expressive brushstrokes alone, rather than figural representation.” The show is an invitation to those deprived of touch during lockdown, to feel touched through the sense of sight alone. Receptive art lovers will sense touch as they graze the surface of the canvas with their eyes. The lower gallery houses a sample of the artist’s figurative drawings and paintings.

Valerie Ellis grew-up in England but ran-away to Australia in her teens. She’s had a 20-year career as a therapist including visits to a maximum security men’s prison. The field of psychology shapes the artist’s creative oeuvre, sharing the foundational concern for abstract-symbolism, the inner world and interpersonal connection. View the show and meet the artist each day from November 2-8, 11am - 7pm.

8-13 December 2020

Textiles2020 is a group of artists and makers who met on the City Lit Advanced Textiles course. They create contemporary textiles that embrace a wide range of textile practice, from the rich traditions of stitch, fabric manipulation, appliqué, printing, and colour, to the use of recycled materials and found objects.

The group is exhibiting work on an open theme, with textile art telling personal stories of loss, childhood memories, historical narrative, subversive stitch, the natural world and abstract forms.

The exhibition will also be online from 8 December at www.textiles2020.com

Open Call for Artists
We are looking for artists who wish to take part in this 'fund-raising' exhibition at Espacio Gallery. Most mediums welcome: painting, printmaking, drawing, photography, digital, 3D, etc.

A Place in Between
11-15 Nov 2020
Private View: Thursday 12 November 6-8pm
Art often explores outer journeys in the landscapes of the so-called real world but for this exhibition, the artists look inside to encounter their inner selves at times of transition. The interface between life experience and the artistic process can be a strange mysterious world of half glimpsed effects and ideas, but this is also the place in between life events where creative sparks are born.

Persona non grata, The Ascending Goddess
Adeline Timis
13-18 October 2020

​​Adeline Timis is a Visual Artist and Shaman. Following a feminist path, she is using her own experiences with the world to show social, mental and physical states of the spirit portrayed in her artworks. While the physical body is silenced, censored, tortured, destroyed and disrespected in a hypocrite 21st century society, the ether body is gaining more knowledge, ascending towards a new Dimension. She sees herself as a reincarnated Goddess in a human body, deserted on Earth to lead others to their journey within. She creates with her soul and third eye visions, absorbing in the energy of the world to fuel her inspiration.

Persona non grata - The Ascending Goddess is an exhibition that aims to express the artist's journey breaking ancestral curse, fighting and healing mental health barriers with a holistic approach, redefining the human condition and following her true path through unconditional self love.

Why Persona non grata? The first part of the title was chosen by the artist owing to the fact that it means an unacceptable or unwelcome person. The Witch, The Priestess and The Shamans are “persona non grata” of the patriarchy. She is all of them embodied in one soul.

Adeline defines the divine feminine ( Goddess ) as a part of an esoteric holy trinity of a Witch, Priestess and Shaman and she depicts each side of herself in her paintings. She mostly paints from memories a version of who she was in past life or the transformation and challenges of her soul in this life.

The layout of the exhibition is divided into two mental state settings. The first floor showcasing the formative years and her struggle with body-image issues and failed relationships that succumbed her self worth. The second floor, her transition to fully understand and accept herself for who she is truly meant to be, standing in power.

Reality and its disorders
9-19 September 2020

Degrees of Freedom invited artists to respond to the new currents that have shaped their lives for a physical exhibition at the Espacio Gallery 9-19th September 2020.

In their response artists shared the mundane as well as transformational impact of the past few months on their lives. Looking ahead and beyond, sometimes inside and sideways, the works in the exhibition bring together very different perspectives on that experience.

Using strategies ranging from humour and playfulness to forensic attention to the body, the works examine states of minds, the new rituals for interaction, the heightened role of touch, and the dance of the body between danger and desire.

Artist taking part:
Lewis Andrews, Andrea Arnold, Roelof Bakker, Liana Bortolozzo, Lizzie Brown, Chris Butler (We are Willow), Wu Cong, Sally de Courcy, Ahmed Farooqui, Yvonne Feng, Aliayta Foon-Dancoes, Paul MacIntyre, Tom Hackett, Roisin Kerslake-Sims, Lisa Kreuziger, Mariusz Libel, Christina Lovey, Julia Maddison, Alicia Monedero, Louise Mortimer, LidiaLidia, Jenny Nash, Nenad Nedeljkov, Jody Oberfelder, Marta Pieregonczuk, Louise Scillitoe-Brown, Marketa Senkyrik, Nat Li Lin Steinhouse, Terry Sylvester, Henryk Terpilowski, Freya Tewelde, Christine Warrington, ​Ben Wilson, Julian Woodcock.
