New Exhibition ‘Inner Landscape’ with Deborah Lanyon

Open November 19 – 24th, 2019

Abstract painting continues to endure and seems to be resonating even more today than it did 10 years ago, despite constant attempts by the avant-garde over the last 50 years to quash it.  Deborah Lanyon’s large abstract paintings come from a generation of artists, mostly men, including John Hoyland, Frank Bowling, Howard Hodgkin and Sean Scully.  Like those artists, she works rapidly and physically with canvases positioned on the floor, letting the paint have its own voice.  Yet the feminine subtleties give the work interest and difference from those of the male painters in this genre.  The paintings are the voice of a woman and a reflection of her personality: physical but effortless; dynamic yet soft; harmonious and rhythmic. They have something else to say that gives them a place in the evolution of abstract painting through the last four decades.

Silvia Lerin’s sculpture ‘Neons from Heaven’ on show in Yorkshire

2019-06-25T10:24:50+00:00

Silvia Lerin’s sculpture ‘Neons from Heaven’ was commissioned by Art in the Churches and Arts Council England for Masham Church in the Yorkshire Dales and is on show throughout the summer, until 28 September.

The sculpture is made of canvas tubes, each capped with a mirror. Looking up to the heavens for guidance, the viewer might reflect that the answers lie in ourselves. The sculpture programme encourages visitors to consider church spaces as being for ourselves in the context of the surrounding history and architecture.

Inner Construct

2018-09-20T09:14:48+00:00
Feb 5th – 10th 2018
The Foundry Gallery 39 Old Church Street, London, SW3 5BS

Curated by Joanna Bryant in collaboration with Julian Page

The notion of the inner construct immediately conjures references to frameworks, pathways and codes resulting from our external experiences. The writings of JG Ballard extend this beyond our experiences to consider the effects that our physical surroundings have on the psyche, projecting external reality onto the imaginative narrative.

“Does the angle between two walls have a happy ending?” JG Ballard

The curation of our dialogue takes this premise and selects work from four female artists, showing the fusion of both their inner and outer spaces. The built environment, nature and the cosmos are represented to form shared realities, based on the commonality of our inner states. Often, liminal spaces will act as metaphors for the parts of ourselves that we ignore, or of which we are unaware, and where the artists’ imaginations seek to remake their worlds.

Including work by Silvia Lerin, Matilde Damele and Joella Wheatley.

Joanna Bryant Projects presents a solo show by François Pont whose engravings/paintings open up spaces, interrupted by gestural accents and lines that rise, descend, dig and move away, capturing the vibrations of urban wastelands and gardens – landmarks in a vast world.
