Problemata  by Alan Ibell

Problemata

Alan Ibell

03 July to 22 July 2018

The title Problemata is taken from Aristotle’s ancient philosophical text which poses questions across topics as diverse as ethics, the human body and meteorology. Fans of Ibell’s spare, questioning canvasses will instantly sense the connection as he continues to explore themes of the unconscious, dreams, psychological space and the fractured reflection or shadow double.

End of the Night

Cruz Jimenez

31/07/18 to 19/08/18

The poetic title of Cruz Jimenez’s new exhibition, End of the Night, encapsulates the emotive and personal nature of his work. While many of Jimenez’s paintings have contained the narrative of finding light in the dark and the shrouding darkness of nighttime, this exhibition suggests a new light, perhaps a new dawn for the artist.

Selves

Scott Eady

21/08/18 to 09/09/18

Scott Eady’s new exhibition Selves is an exploration of identity both personally and collectively, physically and online. Eady’s self-identity has largely been constructed through more than 20 years of exhibiting and making art, in particular sculptural works. In this new series of works, Eady reconsiders the self-portrait through the medium of painting - an art form entirely new to him – and thus, an opposition to the ‘self’ the artist has constructed in his former art making years.

John Oxborough

Jon Oxborough’s works draw on nostalgia, the visceral feelings and memories connected to familiar places and moments and while the subjects of his work embody his personal nostalgia, they too stir these feelings within the viewer.

Here Comes the Sun

Wendy Kawabata

21/08/18 to 09/09/18

Here Comes the Sun is a firm return to painting. The exhibition is a selection of Kawabata's recent investigations into color, light, and textile structure within abstraction. These paintings of polygonal cairns, bucolic settings, and geometric networks, are colorful totems made to empower and charm. Apart from when polygonal cairns are centrally presented, color is not used to describe, rather its presence both suggests and undermines space and form. These cairns serve as trail markers for and personifications of the painter, signposts enabling her to wander a bit but make her way back to the path.
