Current Exhibitions

Jason Hicklin
Drawings, Paintings and Etchings
5th - 21st September 2008
10am - 6pm
Admission: Free



This autumn, contemporary landscape artist, Jason Hicklin, has his first solo show at the Bristol Drawing School. His work brings into the gallery the wild weather from the coastline of the British Isles and Ireland where rain, landscape and sea collide, merging these forces into a heady mix of tones where rocks are huddled against the relentless assault of the elements and the earth and sky dissolve.



Jason will be giving a talk about his work at 5pm on Thursday 4th September, this will be followed by an exhibition preview from 6-9pm.



Graduating from St.Martin’s in 1988 and then from The Central School of Art in 1993, Jason was elected a member of The Royal Society of Painters and Printmakers in 1993 and now holds the position of Royal Engraver.



Jason is currently a lecturer of Printmaking at City and Guilds Art School in London and has his own studio in Shropshire.


Forthcoming Exhibitions

Drawing Interiors
29th November - 21st December 2008
10am - 6pm
Admission: Free



Artists Fran Richardson and Ruth Wallace have different approaches to similar themes of absence in a domestic setting.



Fran’s drawings exploit the blackness of the charcoal to create a dark, shadowy, unhomely place where unusual furniture and objects emerge from an endless void. Areas of the paper are left exposed for dramatic contrast with the dazzling light acting as a barrier to the possibilities beyond the confines of the architecture.



Ruth makes large-scale drawings in charcoal, graphite and mixed media. Her recent work, which centres on portrayals of women’s clothing, explores the dichotomy between absence and presence and the homely and the disturbing in relation to the domestic interior. It also addresses issues connected with memory and female identity and is informed by the distinctive visual style of film noir.
