Openings: “Space//Form” @ Breeze Block Gallery (Part 2)

Following directly on from Part 1 of our coverage of the busy Space//Form opening, AM now delves a little deeper pictorially into the artwork created for this huge group exhibition of 110 artists with a series of pictures where the art is more viewable (like the Mark Dean Veca installation above). To recap, all of the participating artists were given an identical 10×10 inch cradled timber panel by exhibition sponsor Ampersand as the medium to work on. The exhibition curator, Arrested Motion’s Sven Davis chose a brief […]

Preview: “Space//Form” Group Exhibition @ Breeze Block Gallery

As the opening of the Space//Form group exhibition draws ever nearer, and following on from our studio view, AM brings you a glimpse of some of the work in this huge show. Over 100 artists are participating in the exhibit, which opens on 6th September at Breeze Block Gallery in Portland. The artists were each given the same brief and the same materials to work with and asked to explore and represent their interpretation of space and form within either the natural or built environment. Each piece of […]

Update: Space//Form Group Exhibition @ Breeze Block Gallery

One of the most interesting things about curating a group exhibition of over 100 artists is getting to see behind the scenes as the artists develop their work for the show (Chloe Early seen above). Updates come constantly as the participants share their excitement about creating work for the show, and getting to see  some of the creative process that goes into the work is always a pleasure. Space//Form opens in just a couple of weeks time now in Portland at Breeze Block Gallery and here […]

Upcoming: “Space//Form” @ Breeze Block Gallery

Following our recently curated group exhibitions in Hong Kong; East West Connect and Los Angeles; City of Fire, AM’s UK correspondent Sven Davis has branched out with his own curatorial endeavour Space//Form. The group exhibition brings together over 100 young contemporary artists, and opens 6th September at Portland’s Breeze Block Gallery. Curator, Sven Davis, has worked in architecture for over 20 years, so the thematic center of the exhibition is close to his heart as Space//Form centers around notions of the architectural landscape. Each of the […]

Preview: Teresa Duck @ Summer Group Exhibition / Opus Art

Teresa Duck’s paintings grabbed our attention earlier this year when we saw her works at Opus Art’s “Fresh Cream 2” group show, and we just had sight of some of her latest pieces that will be shown at Opus’ Summer Group Exhibition – the first at their new central Newcastle location. Teresa’s series of surrealist figurative works focus on anatomical compositions – with a nod to victorian medical textbooks, metaphysics and alchemy, with some fantastic details and quirks to these small, vibrant oil paintings. The […]

Openings: ‘Fresh Cream 2’ @ Opus Art

AM went along to Opus Art’s opening of group show “Fresh Cream 2” (previewed) at its Newcastle gallery last week to check out the collective wares of Lex Thomas, Hush, Ghost of a Dream, Charlotte Bracegirdle, Alexandra McLain, Hector de Gregorio, Karl de Vroomen and Teresa Duck. The show brought together a great level of variance in the outputs, mediums and techniques used by the artists involved. Read on for our take on the show, as well as our pictures from the opening after the […]

Preview: “Fresh Cream 2” @ Opus Art

Opus Art in Newcastle opens the second of it’s “Fresh Cream” group shows this Thursday, and we can share with you an image from each of the exciting group of young artists involved. Some names may be familiar to our readers already, such as North-East native Hush (interviewed), and London-based Lex Thomas, who’s small but beautifully rendered classically inspired work intertwined with her pixelated backgrounds we recently saw with Opus at the Scope Fair in Miami during Basel week. Other artists showing in “Fresh Cream […]
