FLOWER POWER at Garvey|Simon until April 28th

Sunday, April 8th, 2018

Flower Power, featuring works by six contemporary artists exploring flora in a wide range of media, is the first-ever show co-curated by Ellen Hackl Fagan, of ODETTA Gallery and Elizabeth Garvey, of Garvey|Simon.The two gallerists share a common aesthetic and the exhibition combines artists from their respective programs. Artists include: Christopher Adams, Jackie Battenfield, Daisy Craddock, Sally Gil, Mel Prest, and Sung Won Yun. 

Flowers, gently seductive in their ability to indelibly imprint upon us memories of first meetings, euphoria, and romance, inspire wonder. Flower Power explores both the materiality of flowers through different artistic media, and the entanglement of biological and emotional phenomena they represent. The six artists shown represent a variety of artistic practices, including ceramic, works on paper, and acrylic, and demonstrate the full spectrum from abstraction to realism. Each artist attends to the duality of their subject, offering up an array of technical innovations with which to capture the physicality of flora, and a diverse perspective on flora’s symbolic charge. Flower Power at once enhances and unravels the romance of its muse.

The Gallerists, both members of AWAD who had previously met at Art on Paper, were delighted to co-curate this exhibition. “We were able to connect and re-connect over time because of AWAD, which has been great. We realize that through community we stand a much better chance of growth and strength.”

Bloom: Charlotte Hardy and Sally Stafford at the Sarah Wiseman Gallery (4 – 25 Feb)

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

Sarah Wiseman Gallery is pleased to announce ‘Bloom’ with Charlotte Hardy and Sally Stafford, a joyous, beautiful exhibition exploring colour and pattern interpreting floral forms.

Painter and illustrator Charlotte Hardy finds inspiration in decoration and pattern found in the everyday. Exploring arrangements of pleasing design such as flowers in vases, a still life of a dining table or a shop window display, Charlotte’s work is both loosely expressive and closely observed. Her brushwork is often simple and straightforward but also contain studies of wallpaper design, textile pattern or decoration of ceramics. Take a look at available works here.

Sally Stafford is well known for her expressive landscape painting, using mixed media. Colours and textures develop through application of multiple layers of paint, ink, wax and pigment. There is an element of impressionism in her painting in the way she approaches her work, the intuitive feel of her brushwork, however the mix of different media keeps it resolutely contemporary.
