ANGELA A'COURT PS: 'ALL THAT I BELONG TO'
6 March 2021 - 22 March 2021
'I work from moments of inspiration: I notice the way tulips droop
in a vase, or the way two colours look together. Mundane images
make me reach for my sketch book, rendering me a chronicler, a
visual writer. My work not only grows out of those moments; it
references those moments.'
This body of work is a sympathetic response to the poem 'By Heart' by Thomas John Carlisle which the artist found over 30 years ago while looking through her mother's affairs after she passed away.
PAUL WRIGHT "PROFILES"
24 February 2021 - 13 March 2021
Paul Wright in widely known for this dynamic and emotive portraits since he was shortlisted for the BP Portrait award in 2006 and later in 2015 with his portrait of Simon Armitage CBE.
For this exhibition Paul has entirely focus on just twelve powerful heads no bigger than sixteen inches square of people who have influenced and shaped his lives.
'Profiles' is a survey of likeness, vaunting the mystique of anonymity in a time where humans increasingly wield their image for personal, capital and social gain.
Paring back the concept of portraiture, Wright poses questions about the modern practice of portrayal. What motivates the depiction and dissemination of likeness today? What control is taken back or conceded, by recording likeness through analogue means in lieu of Smartphones and digital cameras?
