Sally Buchanan: Down to Earth

Over the last 4 months I’ve been beavering away as an Artist in Residence 
at  The Free Space Gallery  in Kentish Town Health Centre.  It’s been quite 
an interesting life experience   -   to return as an Artist to the very Practice 
where I trained as a GP some 30 years ago! 

              Installation : Aurora Indoors  (minimum 1500 x 500 x 250 cm)

This piece is based on the idea that some elements of  the  Northern Lights 
could come inside the building.  Here  the paths of charged particles  travel
across three floors up and down the busy metal  stairwell  ;  the intention is 
to soften and  to shift and open out the energy of the space  and to change
the experience for the patients and staff using the stairs.The threads of 
imagination are coming “Down to Earth.”

 Preview date :  Thursday 9th June  6.30-9.00pm

Freespace Gallery, 
Kentish Town Health Centre
2, Bartholomew Road

I’ve made  several  site specific threaded  installations like this  and  much
more recently, some alternative low relief works, tracing out  the  paths  of
intuitive  and  imagined  energy  forms which although actually  present at
this moment in time, aren’t permitted to materialise  or to  interact directly 
with The Freespace Gallery itself!
And  so ; taking inspiration from some of the imperceptible  energy  forms 
which really do continually come ‘Down to Earth.”  I am still wondering… 
if only we knew and we could only understand a little bit more about what 
we can’t normally see …. just what the effect would be?

Exhibition runs Mon - Fri  9 - 6.30pm til 8th July 2016 

Transport - The best route is by tube to Kentish Town ( Northern Line) and 
then less than 10 minutes walk.  Alternatively  Camden Town  and Camden 
Road stations. Parking in local streets after 6.30pm is very limited indeed.

Apologies if you receive this invite via more than one route.

Please feel free to forward this mail onto anyone else you think might be
interested. In the meantime hoping you can come. 

With very best wishes and many thanks,

Sally B

Dear Friends

Can I ask all of you for a bit of help? 

My art agent in Germany has recently put her gallery, ACC Art, on an online site, for art collectors, called Artsy. In order for the gallery and us as individual artists, to gain as much exposure and recognition as possible, we need to increase the amount of followers the gallery has and we each have. It's still early days for her gallery so it would be a huge help if you would be willing to follow the gallery and follow me ;-) (Equally, if you don't want to do this of course I completely understand). 
You can do this by clicking on the two links below. You may need to register on the site first but it's worth it, they send really interesting articles about the art world.  

Thank you so, so much.🙆

david white/marilyn williams/steve lobb at the Pie Factory, Margate 6-18 May

Artists: David White, Marilyn Williams and Steve Lobb

This exhibition is about ways of seeing – how artists using the clay and minerals of the earth delight in its wonders … and fear for its fragility.

David, well known for the classical forms and decorations of his pottery, now expresses in in new images and colours the contrasts between the beauty of nature and the human enterprises that are destroying it. He has also been creating large adventurous ceramics in collaborations with musicians as they play the works of Oliver Messiaen.

Marilyn’s ceramics are drawn from the sea and foreshore with its boats plants and pebbles, and many inspired by birds, their characters and plumage and often creates a playful synthesis between these sources. This year, after visits to the wilder landscapes of the north she has been looking at rock forms and fissures, and interpreting them to convey a feeling of the stillness and simplicity of land and space.

Steve is absorbed by shapes; of the plants and reflections in ponds, the people he sees on beaches and in the street, often transformed to take them away from customary recognition to open up new, sometimes surreal, interpretations. In other paintings, images of forests, broken cities and fairground rides, he targets the warmongers, plutocrats and deniers for their naked greed and abuse of power.

“Ann Kopka: Moving On Up Down Escalators”

Art Exhibition Title:  “Ann Kopka: Moving On Up Down Escalators”
Artist: Ann Kopka      Curator: Ann Kopka
Venue: Cavendish Conference Centre 22 Duchess Mews London W1G 9DT
Dates: 1 February – 27 May 2016
Viewing by appointment only. To view contact Jenny Hullock 020 7706 7700
Free admission
Nearest underground station: Oxford Circus, Great Portland Street  

A solo art exhibition of more than twenty vibrant acrylic paintings, at the award winning Cavendish Conference Centre in central London, informed by Ann Kopka’s fascination with the interaction of geometry, design and architecture in the urban environment.

Ann Kopka’s paintings in essence lean towards abstraction although deliberately hover between the representation of recognisable images and the non-traditional formal repetition of shapes and structures prevalent in abstract art.  There is a visual emphasis on exploring the relationships between structure and scale, colour and light, repetition and pattern. And the processes of deconstructing and reconstructing subject matter to articulate concepts of space produces images, which taken out of their original context, verge towards a perception of abstraction.

Translating her own altered digital images on to large canvases requires precise measurements and calculations, and is an intensive and time consuming operation. The paintings ‘grow’ through the subtle application of multiple layers of vivid acrylic colour. Colour is employed not to be representational but to convey energy, emphasise the circulation of movement and bind the network of structures together into a coherent picture. The slow development of vibrant saturated surfaces results in paintings that have an illusion of depth sometimes with distinctive three dimensional qualities contradicting the defining flatness of abstract art and yet in art historical terms allude to analytical cubism, constructivism, op-art and geometric abstraction.

Ann Kopka studied Fine Art at Central St Martins College of Art and Design and the City Lit. She has studied The Practices and Debates of Modern Art and graduated with a First Class Honours degree from The Open University. She has also studied Museum Curating at Tate Modern. Ann has exhibited in London, the UK and USA. Her work is held in private collections in France, Spain, UK, USA and Australia.
