RCA SHOW 2013

I visited the RCA 2013 show at Howie Street this evening after work. It was open until 8pm, but I only had a couple of hours and still did not see it all.
I am going to add names and more information to this post when I have time, perhaps next week and will re-blog this post
Photos are jumbled at the moment, but it gives an overview.
By the way, it was a mind blowing show.

Inside this concrete frame is a video of a crack between two land masses with rocks tumbling into the space.

The above photo shows a  plinth. Upon this plinth is a printed photograph of a  ‘non’ space,  printed out on to billboard material and then scrunched up. It becomes a sculpture or texture of information that is physically compressed into a screwed up ball, thus changing the space into something else. James’ work documents the entropic processes of the landscape.

I really like this video, where the artist had covered a house in gold foil and then recorded it blowing off the roof and billowing in the wind.

Philipp Dorl

This one was one of my favourites by Philipp Dorl, in Photography. Above, is an image with a projector shining onto its surface. The image below shows the physical qualities of the image. In reality, the image was not quite as blue, but it glowed and looked like a night time landscape.

You can not quite see what is inside. Also, the long planks of wood leaning against the wall were placed inside bottles of wine, so that the wood soaks up the wine and stains the sculpture.

It is by Clare Poulter.house111_08_201251 This was an installation about the death of their Grandmother.

TRUMAN BREWERY

I visited The Truman Brewery today in Brick Lane to see the photography degree shows from different Art colleges around the UK. I took some photos as I was wandering around.

I really liked this camera obscura by Sean Currey, capturing one of the windows of the exhibition space.

A really beautiful  photographic installation, by Bethany SmithImageEmma Hirst  was describing to me how she uses the sun and natural fixers to create her photograms. I recognised the cyanotype process, but the other ones were new to me, such as using onions.ImageThis was one of her favourites in the show.

Work by Ellis King, making ‘movies of the mind’ ImageImageImage

These rain pictures I really liked. They are by Gareth Johnson.  He was initially  inspired by rain used in films such as Akira Kurosawa, Ingmar Bergman and Andrei Tarkovsky and what they could represent or symbolise across different times and cultures. Jonson links rain to the sublime, but not with awe, but “a sense of wonder- albeit one that may be tinged with doubt and ambivalence.”

These ones look like blank photos, but they are really subtle traces of what looks like folds  in paper.

Ally Whitaker- cloud series

Ally Whitaker made these clouds, which she photographed in the theatre with coloured spot lights. They look amazing, so I had to add them to my blog. She is still in year 13, so will be at art college next year doing a foundation. An artist to look out for.

1306 Grey collagraph

Much happier with the way my collagraph is going now that I have pulled back from all the colour I have been using.

Also I am getting much more detail in the image through careful inking. Thinking about all the changes that the earth has been through in deep time. So slowly.

Waiting for the forest to emerge.

This is still work in progress which I intend to print over. I have been thinking about blocking off the image in parts with paper stencils before I print the collagraph to leave blank spaces to print on.

Making a template for hanging ‘Collected Thoughts’ at the Surrey Contemporary.

1306 laying out collected thoughts

This way I can just fix the paper up on the wall and tap the nails straight though.

I hadn’t been to the Robert Phillips Gallery in Walton on Thames before. It is a bit tucked away but a lovely space right on the…
