Current Exhibitions

Hannah Maybank
19 April - 15 June 2008

Preview and Reception for the Artist: Saturday 19 April 2008, 2pm - 5pm

All Welcome: A light buffet lunch will be provided.

Hannah Maybank’s paintings and ink drawings embody an ethereal, contemplative beauty inherent in the natural world. Her work perfectly compliments the rural location of ArtSway, with the New Forest acting as an inspiration for her recent residency which led to this exhibition.

The works created have an otherworldly quality to them, employing recurring motifs of trees, clouds and mountains, for example. The repetition of these motifs across the surfaces of the paintings not only echoes aspects of life, growth and decay, but also the cycle of the process in which the paintings were made.

The paintings begin as a series of overlapping drawings using precise outlines on layers of tracing paper. Using these intricate drawings as templates, Maybank then builds up her images on canvas using latex between layers of acrylic paint. During the final stages much of the latex is removed. Layers of paint are then peeled back, torn and cut into, producing a tactile sur... [ Read all ]

A people living under the perpetual menace of war and invasion is very easy to govern. It demands no social reforms. It does not haggle over expenditures on armaments and military equipment. It pays without discussion, it ruins itself, and that is an excellent thing for the syndicat... [ Read all ]


Previous Exhibitions

Alex Frost: BBQ

BBQ is the title of this exhibition of new work by the Glasgow-based artist, Alex Frost. The exhibition will include a range of new sculptures and drawings that relate directly to the residency Frost undertook in late 2007. These works play upon the concept of the rural retreat in contrast to the artist's urban, or specifically suburban, standpoint. BBQ is presented in association with Milton Keynes Gallery.

The works for ArtSway will follow on closely from his previous 'adults' exhibition at MK-G in 2007. Previous projects by Frost have included a large-scale, mosaic scultures that compliment the 'blind drawings' series. These mosaics depict the commercial packaging of products such as Ryvita, Earl Grey Tea and After Eight Mints. These items were chosen for their references to sophisticated, social and grown-up lifestyles - inspiring the exhibition title BBQ. The sculptures which will be on show in Alex's February exhibition, refer to civic sculptures or murals and have been cited both within the gallery setting as well as in the public domain. They have been installed in a range of urban environments - areas ... [ Read all ]
