Adah Rose Gallery Presents – In this Moment

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

The Adah Rose Gallery in Kensington, MD is pleased to present the two person show, In This Moment, featuring the works of artists Anne C. Smith and Christina Tenaglia. The show runs through June 4th, 2017.

Night holds a special fascination for Anne Smith.  She combines the intense black of charcoal with delicate lines of graphite in her drawings inspired by memory and landscape.  Her art is beautifully deliberate; a glimpse into another world.  With elegant lines, Anne creates an awareness of spatial relationships.  Her work suggests a vastness with the quietude and stillness of night. Hints of form or space inspire questions and observations about the visual language of minimalism and abstraction.

Christina Tenaglia’s sculptures are in a continual state of doing and undoing, arriving at a perfect moment of repose.  Using mostly wood and paint, each sculpture is carefully constructed and inspires a playful exploration of its parts.  They are fragments, passing thoughts, rigorous, but also full of wonder. Christina’s works on paper are simple gestures and expansive thoughts, suggestive of architecture and landscape.  Using pen and ink and bits of collage, she creates compositions that are both abstract and recognizable, full of whimsical and curious details.

About Venetia Norris

Creating all her work with everything that is provided around her, Norris tunes into small and delicate details which make up our surroundings documenting scenes which can be easily missed.

Living and working in London, Norris explains how everything living has a unique shape and form, everything makes its presence felt in some way, leaves a mark, some traces on or below the surface, everything strives to find its place and space, however small, everything struggles to become part of the whole.

Trying to understand that journey is what interests Norris, how a plant or a flower grows into itself, how it composes it’s self, where it is found, the various stages of it’s journey, how it emerges into it’s self, and how that self is then seen.

Anise Gallery presents works by Jeanette Barnes in ‘Time and Tide’ (5/Nov-5/Dec)

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

Anise Gallery presents works by Jeanette Barnes in ‘Time and Tide’, an exhibition at their Shad Thames space running from 5th November to 5th December.

Jeanette Barnes has, for the past 25 years, been capturing the city of London’s boundless energy through her drawings. Often vast in scale, they engage with the continual development of the urban environment and its relationship with those who inhabit it. In contrast to the frantic scenes that they depict, Jeanette’s drawings evolve gradually over time, the ebb and flow of information, akin to a passage of time, developing until the drawings outcome is found.

Her most recent work has taken her further into the depths of time, moving away from the familiar contemporary London to an exploration into its history, hidden and preserved amongst the river beds of the Thames. Everyday artefacts, carefully selected for their resonance, from specific sites along the Thames, St Paul’s, the Globe Theatre and Shad Thames, are reinterpreted. Their simplistic beauty highlighted and through integrating these objects into her work, Jeanette reconnects them with the present London.

‘Time and Tide’ brings these two bodies of work together for the first time, contrasting the activity and timespan of contemporary London with that deeper sense of history that London’s rivers maintain to re-frame our view of then and now.

‘We also deserve to live’ Minho Kwon at the Foundry gallery (2/Jul-12/Aug)

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

The Foundry Gallery at Le Lay Architects are pleased to announce a new body of work by Minho Kwon in an exhibition that will run from 2nd July to 12th August.

Minho Kwon is a storyteller and an image-maker. His densely, multifaceted drawings command our attention. Kwon’s specialness as an artist is the ability is to fuse industrialised South Korea with Korean culture and it’s political economic history through the expressive power of drawing. The result is potent, brooding and dreamlike; dark blueprints for a dystopic past

His colossal drawings at first seem to be incomplete; architectonic lines have been drawn and rendered with an obsessive attentiveness to detail, demonstrating a comprehensive understanding of his materials – layers of pencil, graphite and charcoal. ‘We Also Deserve to Live” has transformed The Foundry Gallery into a test-bed for Kwon’s vast architectural creations. Views that cannot be found in one drawing can be found in another, there is no one-way to look at the works or a linear path you have to follow around the gallery the visual gaps you find allow you the space to construct your own story.

The Foundry Gallery showcases work found and forged between art and architecture and its distinct relationship with Le Lay Architects who reside downstairs. The Foundry Gallery is the brainchild of Jonathan Goode and Jason Slocombe of Le Lay Architects and run by Gallery Director Elizabeth Goode.
