EXHIBITION
An Intimate Distance – Craigie Aitchison RA, Eileen Cooper RA, Natasha Michaels and Jo Taylor
15 April – 29 May 2021
Please book before visiting the gallery - east gallery

‘An Intimate Distance’ is a side view of contemporary portraiture. It brings together portraits where the relationship between the sitter and the artist has been forged, and invented portraits, where the imagination of the artist has given new agency and form to previous incarnations. 

Craigie Aitchison (1926–2009) is well known for his colourful, stylised paintings. This ‘Portrait of Naaotwa with Green Earring’, 2006 shares its rose bengal  background with the light of the room and curiously, though intense, enhances the subtle skin tones of Naaotwa, one of his favourite models. 

Eileen Cooper has recently returned to drawing and painting from life. In this collection are two very different male subjects, Ziggy and Archie, both Royal Academy alumni. There is a tenderness in the handling of materials in both. 

Natasha Michaels originally trained as an illustrator at the Royal College of Art. The origins of her recent monoprints lie in historical portraits from the renaissance to the 19th century. Exploring challenging, and at times, up-ending traditional conventions and genres. 

Jo Taylor, through her medium of Ceramics, crosses the boundary from likeness abstract form creating new vessels in porcelain that appropriate Sevre porcelain from the 18th Century.  Each is a contemporary reinterpretation of this elegant high-shouldered, voluptuous shape. The surface is embellished with hand formed flourishes in matt coloured porcelain and fluid brushes of slip, that are strike impolite conversations with the material, challenging them into new articulations #CraigieAitchison #EileenCooper #natashamichaels #jotaylorceramics #rableygallery #weareopenforbusiness

The mezzotint process is a 17th Century intaglio method of printmaking achieving an exquisite soft tonal range by abrading the surface of a copper plate with a toothed rocker and burnishing areas of light by smoothing the surface where the ink will not be held. Transformed by the hand inking of the plate with sticky ink and the transference by the etching press onto the paper.

Rabley Gallery is at the heart of farmland, brimmed by woods, fields, river and downland in and area of outstanding natural beauty (ANOB)  on the Marlborough Downs. It is habitiat to over 300 species of moths– a ‘tip of the iceberg’  list that has spurred my interest, leading to us inviting Sarah Gillespie to present these stunning Wessex moth prints whose names read like incidental poetry ‘Lime-speck Pug, White Plume, Light Emerald, Black Arches, Small Phoenix, Yellow-tail, Common Quaker’
