Get it Arts – print exhibition

Saw a print exhibition today. It was just about to close so good to check it out. An interesting collection of photographs, etchings, collagraphs and screen prints in a space round the corner of Brick lane in Heneage street called 5thbase.

I really liked a series of collages by SooMin Leong. Above is a rather quick snap of their art and work by Marion Kuit and Clare Phelan was also exciting.

Exhibiting artists were. Aliette Bretel / Clare Phelan / Daniel Shiel / Emma Sywyj / Eunjung Suh / Lorena Herrero / Marion Kuit / Millie Edwards / Minju Kim / Sarah Cliffe / SooMin Leong / Tanya Fryer

I hope to investigate their work more thoroughly but for now this is to just note down names for future reference.

Marmite Prize 2016 at Block 336

Retread- The Marmite prize by Alison Wilding

I went to see the Marmite Painting Prize this week in Brixton

http://www.marmiteprize.org

It was an interesting  collection of work, which grew on me the more I looked at them. The work was fairly quiet, nothing too bombastic and therefore appeared unassuming.. until I took a closer glance.  As a whole, the selection of work is difficult to describe, as indicative of many an open submission. There was unusual subject matter, it was mostly figurative, but with a quirky, playful twist. None of it really made sense without me having to read up on the artists. I will endeavour to attend the upcoming artist’ talk to discover meanings and intentions.

Artists’ Talk : Saturday 18th June

Join us on Saturday 18th June from 2-4pm where Block 336 will host talks with Marmite Prize Winner Jessie Makinson, Student Prize winner Anthony Banks and Runner-Up Sheila Rennick.

Following this Marcus Cope, co-founder of the Marmite Prize for Painting will discuss his motivations behind setting up the open call painting prize. 

The Marmite Prize of Painting V, 2016 is open!

 Parts of a work  seemed straight forward, but then they had been skewed,  by combining it with another random image, or a strange texture, and therefore the  meanings had been obscured so I was baffled. However, the arrangement of work was enjoyable, exciting and fresh to behold.

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started

And know the place for the first time

Little Gidding, Four Quartets – T.S. Eliot (1943)
The physical process of wandering enables us to draw in information as we move from site to site. However The Places We Go is as much about looking inward – searching what we conceptualise as a “space within” – as looking outward, as the borders between material space and internal space are often blurred. One of the ways a painter learns about life is to explore it: the artists in this exhibition eloquently capture the moment of returning to the start and finding something new in the familiar.
This exhibition of paintings brings together a wide range of work focusing on the particularities of place, whether unknown or known, that are available in human experience.
