Lucy Bainbridge’s Fermata at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea (21 April – 2 June)

Monday, April 17th, 2017

Lucy Bainbridge’s Fermata (shown here courtesy of the artist and The Foundry Gallery) showcases a new body of work that attempts to capture the ephemeral nature of London. Bainbridge has effectively dematerialized the cityscape unfolding in front of her, giving us a recognisable but estranged vision of London’s skyline.

Through Bainbridge’s multidisciplinary approach to printmaking (she uses photographic screen prints, printed directly onto graphite dust with an overlay of drawing and additional screen printing) she challenges our ideas of what constitutes a print. Working from photographs taken just before dawn, where the light is limited and relative calm envelopes London, she then edits her work both digitally and throughout her printmaking process, removing enough detail so that what remains are these beautiful glimpses of stillness in the incessant rhythm of the routine of London.

The Foundry Gallery presents Ed Saye’s ‘No Promised Land’

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

‘No Promised Land’ Ed Saye‘s exhibition at The Foundry Gallery in London runs until 12th January 2017 and showcases a new series of paintings focusing on the architecture of idealism. These highly complex and detailed paintings originate from found photographic images of modernist houses falling into disrepair and the makeshift homes of hippie communities.  While these two styles of architecture seem to lie at the furthermost points from each other, both implied that utopian idylls could be fabricated through architecture.   Each of Saye’s paintings is a different version of these fading idylls, a lament for the utopian ideals of either living through Modernist values – buildings as machines for living – or in hippie communes, living off the land – simply off-grid.

The Foundry Gallery presents Simon Phipps’ Beton Brut (9 Sep – 27 Oct)

Wednesday, August 17th, 2016

The Foundry Gallery presents Simon Phipps’ BÉTON BRUT from 9 September to  27 October.

What do you think of when you hear the architectural term ‘Brutalism’? Love these concrete monolithic buildings or hate them the artist and photographer Simon Phipps is ready to challenge all your preconceptions of the Brutalist building in his solo exhibition in London: BÉTON BRUT.

Simon Phipps has spent the last 15 years photographing and documenting Brutalist and buildings in the UK, creating a survey of photographic images that demonstrate the breadth of this contentious architectural style.
 
BÉTON BRUT showcases a new series of architectural photographs screen printed in monochrome onto brushed aluminum. Phipps’ careful selection of materials for his work captures one of the properties of Brutalism, ‘its not concerned with the material, but the quality of the material, what can that material do?’ The use of a halftone screen and the aluminium moves the photograph away from the representational; it becomes more sculptural within the enhanced materiality of surface and ink. His photography plays with the viewer’s perspective of the buildings; he has an innovative way of looking at these dynamic constructions finding interesting new vistas and perspectives to capture our imagination.
 
A selection of Phipps extensive photographic inventory is also displayed in BÉTON BRUTwhere the curatorial arrangements highlight typological similarities and differences, revealing an analysis of form and structure. Using the placement of colour to highlight architectural details; stemming from Le Corbusier’s Polychromie Architectural, Phipps has used colour from the buildings he has resolutely documented and faithfully used these colours as an integral part of the exhibition in The Foundry Gallery.  BÉTON BRUT is curated by Elizabeth Goode.

The Foundry Gallery presents Katherine Jones’ Looking In, Looking Out (14/Jan-28/Feb)

Monday, December 14th, 2015

From the 14th of January 2016, The Foundry Gallery will present a new exhibition featuring works by Katherine Jones, ‘LOOKING IN, LOOKING OUT’  (one of the works by Jones, Frame, a 2015 collograph is shown here courtesy of The Foundry Gallery) Bridging the divide between motherhood and the art-world has proved to be a catalyst for an exciting new body of work. Partly auto-biographical, acclaimed artist Katherine Jones has taken the archetypal children’s playground and the objects and things a child uses on a daily basis and employed these as a starting point for the works in ‘LOOKING IN, LOOKING OUT’

The fascination of the familiar objects of childhood playgrounds; roundabouts, climbing frames, and the apparatus which form secure considered places for children’s play have become Katherine’s means of expression for describing her personal experiences of witnessing her own children’s development as they begin to learn about the world around them.

Katherine Jones is a fine art printmaker and painter. She was brought up in Herefordshire and now lives and works in Brixton, South London. She combines traditional forms of intaglio and relief print, namely etching, collagraph and block-print to produce her distinctive images. (more…)
