SPLASH 2020
​7-19 January 2020
Private View: Saturday 11 January 2-6pm
Late Night Opening: Thursday 9 January 11am - 9pm
'SPLASH 2020' is a vibrant exhibition of work to be held at Espacio Gallery. Four artists will be taking part.

Delyth Bolt, Jenny Blanchard, Judith Whitehouse, and Linda Simmonds.

Jenny Blanchard makes work that searches the layers of physical memory, exposing and disclosing the past. Observations of historic remains also lead on to a more personal search.

Delyth Bolt’s studies continue to respond to the figure, more recently using paper figures as a starting point. Painting in layers without anticipating the outcome has created a sense of freedom and movement.

Linda Simmonds’ practice explores the process of repeated mark making as a response to memory loss and the ability to recall. Her work develops intuitively through paintings, prints and mixed media.

Judith Whitehouse’s study over the last twenty years has explored the philosophy and practice of geometry. Recent work has expanded boundaries of approach and use of medium.

The exhibition runs from 7th - 19th January. Open 11am - 6pm Tuesday to Saturday and Sunday 11am - 5pm. Additionally there will be a late night opening on Thursday January 9th until 9pm.

Curated by the participating artists.

Raw Perspectives challenges our perceptions of masculine identity today. The work in this exhibition challenge us to experience the male figure with all our senses. Art that we consume from advertising and pornography can produce a connection of tactile fresh eroticism, movement and intimacy. These images elicit powerful responses, yet can also offer a subtler experience. Sometimes it’s enough to quietly look, reflect and enjoy.

Art can stir feelings and memories, get under our skin and cut to the bone. We might find a work moving, whilst others might find some work disturbing, but they all share the same focus on masculinity, weather it’s from a male or female perspective. This inspired the context of this exhibition Raw Perspectives.

Raw Perspectives focuses on the themes of desire, passion, love, loneliness, isolation, loss, intimacy, connection, eroticism, longing, fear, adversity, conflict, community and empowerment.

Raw Perspectives reveal intriguing uncertainties highlighting the significance of narratives in contemporary art and focusses on socio-cultural and specific meanings around masculinity and the male figure. Some work reverses traditional sexual politics of the male nude, viewed by female artists. Other work explore the fluidity of drag and transgender body politics.

The exhibition presents work by 14 figurative artists working specifically around the male figure. Some work reverses traditional sexual politics of the male nude, viewed by female artists. Other work looks at the fluidity of drag and transgender body politics.

The realm of darkness, chaos and fear is part of our anthropological reality and the artist’s role sheds light on the complexity of human existential experiences.
Expressive obscurity and emotional terrains are common thread amongst the works included within this dynamic exhibition. The liberating capacity of uncertainty which originates from personal experience acts as a springboard to inspire creative dialogue between artists and subject. These uncertainties and improbabilities have the power to liberate the viewer’s imagination and engage more readily on an emotional and intellectual level. Through a visual narrative the 14 artists in this exhibition bring us on a journey through the nature of human existence and experience within a complex intriguing and fascinating reflection of what it is to be male.

Hyperspectral - An Exhibition of Light
25 November - 1 December 2019
Private View: Thursday 28 November 6-9pm

Nearly all objects in the universe emit, reflect or transmit some light. It is the basis for our vision and the energy required to sustain life on earth.

By exploring a wide range of themes from color to the lack of it, brightness and shadows, perception and transformation, source of power and a mysterious force, the artists express the theme conceptually and share their light with others.

Raw Perspectives
3-8 December 2019
Private View: Tuesday 3 December 6:30 - 9pm
First Thursdays Performances: Thursday 5 December 7-9pm

Raw Perspectives brings together the work of 14 painters, photographers, sculptors and 4 performance artists who explore the definition and complexity of what it is to be ‘masculine’ in today’s society.

This exhibition encourages dialogue on the validity of the continuing stranglehold on today’s culture and how the nude male body still remains behind almost impenetrable walls of censorship and taboo. This exhibition invites us into the intimate space between artist and subject; to look beneath appearances and challenges masculine identify and the suppression of masculinity and denial of expression of beautiful, erotic, raw, vulnerable emotions that define us today.

Exhibiting Artists:
Pit Ca, Jane Clatworthy, Brian Dennis, Phyllis Dupuy, Kennedy Grant, Mark Ho, Stuart Howitt, Martin Ireland, Christopher James Murphy, Sally Shrubsall, Ivor George Sexton, Chrissy Thirlaway, Dante Turner, Georg Meyer-Wiel

Performers:
Giacomo Pini, Jeyseelan Thirukkumaran, Antonio & Riccardo

This exhibition includes three performance pieces which will enrich the exhibition across creative disciplines between performance and visual arts for the East London Gallery 1st Thursday events on Thursday 5th December, 7-9pm.

Two life drawing workshops will be running in the lower gallery on Saturday 7th Dec between 2-6pm. Workshops will be £10.
All materials will be supplied by the exhibition, supplied by Great Art supplies.

This exhibition is supporting Entelechy Arts, a charity that works alongside people who have often been invisible and un-regarded members of their communities, either because of disability, underlying health conditions or the ageing process.

This exhibition has been supported by James Smiths & Sons Ltd and Robert Bridgewater.
