Peter Randall-Page RA
“The lines appear to bisect their plane, but not as a scalpel does: they partition it with no pretense at economy. They meander like rivers carving up the landscape – you’re always on one side or the other, but stick a pin, blindfold, into the map and there’s no telling which side it will be” Philip Ball, Scientist and writer.
Randall-Pages sculpture and drawings have always been informed and inspired by the study of natural phenomena and its subjective impact on our emotions. In recent years his work has become increasingly concerned with the underlying principles determining growth and the forms it produces. In his words “geometry is the theme on which nature plays her infinite variations, and can be seen as a kind of pattern book on which the most complex and sophisticated structures are based.”
Rebecca Salter RA
In her works on paper Salter draws on the raw materials of paper and wood blocks, often transferring marks from wood to paper. They are cut, folded and traced to create visual depth of surface.
Rebecca Salter is attracted to the visual sophistication of Japanese prints; the flat colour, the bold, cropped compositions and, above all, the fluidity of the lines are all evident influences on her minimal, abstract works on paper, print and painting.
Emma Stibbon RA
LISTEN – Emma Stibbon talking from her studio about the making of her monumental woodcut ‘El Chorro’ and recent prints made in the Arctic and Antarctic.
LISTEN – From Fragonard to Sevre, Jo Taylor introduces her deliciously voluptuous new vessels!
The drawings and etchings by Ian Chamberlain are the culmination of a response to The Atlantic Wall. The Atlantic wall is a WWII German defence system built along the west coast of Europe. These brutalist forms are being interpreted as architectural metaphors concerning boundaries and borders.
The exhibition Ian Chamberlain, Shifting Sand, North Atlantic Wall continues in the gallery throughout January 2021. More works are available by this artist
