What's on show
Caroline Chappell - A Walk on the Wild Side
Vladimíra Hanková - READ ME
Exhibition runs: 25th May 2015 – 5h July 2015
Vladimíra is from Prague and makes art from things that give her a warm feeling in her heart. She likes to work with acrylics and ink and only three colours. The work references her personal events as both internal experiences and an observation from her external world. Some of these have even shaped her own journey as a woman; just as the line gives shape, emotion and narrative to the female body.
Painting has always aided her in self-expression. Currently embarking on her first self-written, illustrated comic book.
The money raised from the sales of the paintings and the postcards will be donated to the children in the JR Hospital and Maggie’s Centre, supporting people with cancer in Oxford.
JUNKO O'NEILL - BIJOUX
29th April 2015 – 27th May 2015
The foundation of Junko O'Neill's work lies in the Japanese spatial and temporal concept of Ma, which considers negative space as having a form of existence, with space perceived alongside time. It is neither time alone nor space alone. Junko expresses this concept both in her figurative and abstract work.
In her abstract work, such as those shown at this exhibition, Bijoux, she experiments with ways to express space where time flows at a slower pace, detached from the rest not by a physical structure but by one's own perception. Junko adds jewel-like translucence and depth to the space she creates on the two dimensional surface. Similar to gem stones, bijoux, which encase time within them, she traps the space and time, creating a tense yet calm atmosphere at the same time.
Born in Tokyo, this UK based artist gained her MA and BA from Winchester School of Art, where she was given the Stephen Heffer Memorial Award in 2008 and was also shortlisted for the Celeste Prize 2011 and Kudos International 2013. She has exhibited widely in the UK and abroad, including solo shows in London, Fragments of Time (2013) and Interlude (2014), group shows in Berlin and Florence and also several times at the London’s prestigious juried artist-led fair The Other Art Fair.
CAROLINE CHAPPELL - A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE
29th April 2015 – 26th May 2015
Our huge fast- moving skyscapes have inspired this collection of paintings. Using strong directional marks and loose splashes of rich colour, I have tried to capture the vastness, movement and grandeur of our skies.
Caroline Chappell lives in North Oxfordshire. She completed a BEd in Art and Education at Homerton College Cambridge in 1971 and won the North Oxfordshire ART2 Newcomers Award in 2011.
Caroline’s delicate recipe prints and cards are also for sale in our bar area!
