WINDY WEATHER WARNING : The Time to Act is Now

Wednesday, November 28th, 2018

As the windows start rattling in the wind and a tumbleweed of litter rushes down the street it’s clear we’re heading into winter storm season. Just as our cousins in the southern States have watched Hurricane season since May, in the UK, Europe and North America we will have one eye on the weather forecast for the next five months, wondering whether we’ll get snowed in, cut off, flooded or lose windows in the gales.

Although winter storms rarely cause significant risk to life, the frequency of low-level damage and interruption to services is high, and businesses can be crippled for days or even weeks after a severe storm.

ARTful exhibiting works by Furrah Syed

Tuesday, November 27th, 2018

ARTful is delighted to be exhibiting four pieces of artwork by  Furrah Syed and hope you enjoy the new selection of work now on display on the ground floor reception.

Furrah Syed is a London-based abstract artist who specialises in painting heavily-textured canvases using acrylics, oils and mixed-media.  She studied Fine Art and Textile Design along with Art History in London.

Furrah’s works show a strong commitment to colour, texture and movement. Focusing primarily on ‘pure’ colour, Furrah uses the canvas as a vehicle to promote the energy created by the interaction of pigment with brushes and various other tools. Her bold experimentation using mixed media have been well received within the art community. Her paintings have a very strong visual effect and compel the viewer to delve into the world of a purely abstract expression of vivid emotion and raw energy.

Nature of Non-Existence @ Gazelli Art House

Wednesday, November 14th, 2018

Opening on the 29th of November

Gazelli Art House presents Nature of Non-Existence, a new solo exhibition by Recycle Group, the award- winning artist duo known for their pioneering use of technologies from Virtual Reality (VR) to Augmented Reality (AR) throughout their practice. In their new exhibition, the artists unlock a hidden world via the use of an AR app available on the viewer’s mobile devices.

In the words of Recycle Group, “The main idea behind Nature of Non-Existence is that the visitor can change their perspective to a machine’s eyes and feel how the world is inside the brains of a machine. There are two points of view in the world: a human’s and a machine’s, a perspective that we do not see and doesn’t exist for us. The experience gives the viewer a chance to feel like a machine; not just to see it, but to feel it.
