ARTful in collaboration with BarkerandMay – David Hicks Exhibition.

ARTful are excited to be collaborating with BarkerandMay to bring the works of talented artist David Hicks to Vintners Place, London.

David Hicks is an artist who uses abstraction to explore a language of line, form and emotive image. Mostly working in oils and collage David uses methods of layering and of contemplative responses to the inner workings of the painting as it builds. He works either on one painting at a time or in in a series with a similar medium and this exploration allows an internal dialogue to emerge. Often listening to music or with a story or personal image in mind his response is a natural instinctive way of painting. He will allow some paintings to rest for months before painting over them creating layers and depth. Fine Papers are used in his work as well as bold brush strokes and lines. In some paintings landscapes may appear as recognisable subjects Illuminated by the personal response within the viewer.

There will be a Private View on 07.11.2018 between 6.30 – 8.30pm. If you would like to attend or receive any information about the artist please contact info@ARTful.org.uk | ask@barkerandmay.co.uk .

Blanket Statements: Works by Gina Adams, Maria Hupfield & Marie Watt presented by Accola Griefen Fine Art and MINUS SPACE

Accola Griefen Fine Art and MINUS SPACE are pleased to present the three-woman exhibition Blanket Statements: Works by Gina Adams, Maria Hupfield & Marie Watt. This is the first collaborative project by the galleries and it will take place at MINUS SPACE’s location in Dumbo, Brooklyn. The show closes

Artists Gina Adams, Maria Hupfield, and Marie Watt are of indigenous decent and fabric plays a significant role in their respective practices. No other blanket statements can be made, however, about the work of these three individuals. Each has a unique approach to her materials, as well as the confluence of tradition and innovation. Adams, Hupfield, and Watt make work that resists simplified interpretation. Gina Adams draws upon cultural practices passed down from her ancestors, as well as a family history of forced assimilation. Her Broken Treaty Quilt Series consists of restructured antique quilts sewn with words from broken treaties between Native American tribes and the United States government. Similarly, Marie Watt’s work stems from history, biography, Iroquois proto-feminism, and indigenous principles. Her large format works are commonly made in sewing circles, public events in which fellowship and storytelling can be as important as the resulting object. Felt is a favored material of Maria Hupfield, “a maker, a mover, a connector, an Anishinaabe-kwe and a member of Wasauksing First Nation.” (Art in AmericaOctober 2017). Hupfield’s performance-based photographic works are disrupted by felt collages and address the issue of self-definition. The applied fabric acts as both as a shield and a screen, repelling consumption of the body and of nation, and resisting specificity and oversimplification.
