Outside In: Abstracting the Landscape 

Gallery 1 & 2

9 October - 10 November 2017

During the twentieth-century, horizons widened for British artists who increasingly found themselves competing within international contexts. To greater or lesser degrees, these artists allied themselves to abstract movements in painting coming out of Paris and New York.

This exhibition of paintings, drawings and prints from the School of Art collection considers how, for landscape artists in particular, personal expression and formal values in picture-making gradually supplanted narrative and representation. We see how artists began to use nature more selectively, going beyond ‘likeness’ as they sought to capture the essence of a place or describe an experience before nature.

The exhibition includes artworks by Michael Ayrton, John Elwyn, Mary Feddon, Bert Isaac, Ceri Richards, Graham Sutherland, Keith Vaughan, and Ernest Zobole.

 
 

Speak to Me: Contemporary Conversations with the Still Life Tradition

Gallery 3

16 October - 10 November 2017

Frances Woodley's PhD-exhibition: Prestend here are ways in which conversation has been used to reveal contemporary still life's 'conversations' with its tradition. It is a tradition to which it still belongs, however tenously. Conversations between Frances Woodley and over twenty artists from the UK and the Netherlands between 2012 and 2016 led to three exhibitions (presented here in miniature form), and the publication of three catalogues. At the same time Woodley was pursuing her own 'conversations' with the tradition. These have taken the form of watercolour and digital painting, model-making, and drawing. The exhibition is a culmination of a research project, one that started out expecting to find a community of contemporary still life practice with which the artist could engage. In the absence of the community she was looking for she invented a notional one, brought together through her exhibitions. Catalogues will be for sale.
