CULTIVATE PRESENTS: Something Blue, An Art Exhibition…

Something Blue, An Art Exhibition…  The notion is simple, an on-line curated art exhibition, a group show of artists and a carefully selected curated show united via the vague theme of “something blue”. A collection of painters, print makers, video makers, sculptors and more, a simple notion, please explore and enjoy (Sean Worrall, Cultivate, August 2017)

Click in an image to enlarge or to tun the slide show.  We would like to think the show is worth viewing on a PC or larger computer monitor rather than a annoyingly small phone screen.  Notes and links to the artists can be found at the foot of this page.

 

NOTES, LINKS AND  DETAILS

1: Artist: LAURA SCULL, Title: Cardiff II (2015) – Double print of a range of screen printed drawings and sample paint. Composed of about 6 different layers. (58x63cm)

2: Artist: LAURA SCULL, Title: Untitled (2016) – Experimentation of techniques to create a textured layered surface  29.7cm x 42cm – www.facebook.com/ArtistLauraScull

3: Artist: SZILVIA PONYICZKI, Title: Adventures in Perception II (2017) – acrylic painting on newspaper covered metal sheet. 60 x 60 cm – “Interrogations about the unconscious and the representation of dreams are at the core of my work. The painting is an optical illusion, where the figures of horses are interwoven with the trees around them. This creates interesting phenomena; it is not always clear whether a horse stands in front of another or behind it” – www.ponyiczki.co.uk.

4: Artist: DAY BOWMAN, Title: Rear View Mirror 3 (2017), oil, charcoal and conte on canvas, 152 x 168 cm – “In these works I have set out to investigate how and why we travel the landscapes of Britain that are passed through, ignored or deleted from the collective memory.  Whilst the paintings represent snapshots of journeys taken through cities, suburbs, retail parks, parking lots and endless motorways, the rear-view mirror – a constant in the works – represents a two-way mirror of past and future. The mirror comes to represent a gateway, very much in the present, but allowing us to reflect on what has gone before and what might take place. Thus our daily journeys to work, the railway station or retail parks is laid open and the routine criss-crossing the land and our daily lives is brought into focus; journeys which we absorb, acknowledge or ignore. – www.daybowman.com

5: Artist: VERITY NEWMAN, Title: Circle (2016), Acrylic on canvas, 60 x 80cm – “I find myself moving between expressive representational work and abstract work, but more recently I have had the need to explore colour and composition in its purest sense, intuitively and naturally. ‘Circle’ is a result of this process. Blue is the colour I most frequently seek to perfect, either as the main colour or the accent colour, as in this piece, which features Cobalt Blue, hovering, beautifully rich and soft”- www.veritynewman.blogspot.co.uk.

6: Artist: VERITY NEWMAN, Title: Blue Bowl on Red and Red Bottle on Blue (pair) 2015, Acrylic on canvas, 30cm x 30cm (each) – “Part of a still life series exploring our connection to the objects we collect, organise and display in our environments. Some symbolise attachments, to memories and past lives, others reflect a more fleeting need to own something new. The blue bowl was made for me by a colleague as a farewell gift (we have since become good friends) and the red bottle was given to me by my best friend who has since moved on and I no longer have contact with. The symbolism of red against blue is something that features in my work again and again. They are key primary colours that can work together well, but so often jar in temperature, bringing a new power dynamic to a composition” – www.veritynewman.blogspot.co.uk

7/8: Artist: ANGELA McFALL, Title: Sargasso (2016), oil on canvas, 60cm x 60cm.  Title: The Sea (2016), oil on canvas – “Sargasso is from a series of paintings exploring place. – “I wanted to capture that feeling of the sea in summertime. Standing on the beach in Nice and looking out at the Mediterranean is a distinct time and place, the shade of blue is like no other. So I wanted to capture this moment and try to contain it. The title Sargasso refers to a sea with no coast, it is a sea within the sea” – http://www.angelamcfall.com

14: Artist: PHILL HOPKINS. Title: No.9 (Post Truth), 2016, Household paints and varnish and spray paint on Fabriano 100/100 cotton paper. 28.7 x 19.6cm. “After the turmoil of the Brexit vote, during the build-up to the American election and in the mist of a family struggle, in October 2016 I spent some time on the coast in Pembrokeshire, Wales. I took hundreds of photographs of the empty sea. In an attempt to straighten my mind I edited these down to 65 black and white images. Returning to my studio I started to make paintings based on the photographs. The images and my application of paint became more and more turbulent, increasingly so after the presidential election result. These new paintings are called the ‘Post Truth’ series, currently numbering over 35 works. They are made on thick Fabriano paper that I was given, using household paints and varnishes, spray paint and what comes to hand” – www.phill-hopkins.co.uk.

15: Artist: PHILL HOPKINS, Title:  Untitled (Mark Rothko by Hans Naumuth 1964) 2017, Paints, varnishes, drips, marks and studio debris on postcard, 10.5 x 14.8cm

20: Artist: SUSAN BANKS. Title: Persephone [Among Torches of Darkness] no 2 (2011), Oil paint on deep canvas, 76x76x4cm – “Persephone [Among Torches of Darkness] # 1 eludes the usual narrative of serial victimhood associated with myth and depictions of abduction and implies that some aspects of the underworld could be relished. Elements of the painting were suggested by the poem Bavarian Gentians by D H Lawrence”.No2 is in the show because I rather wanted more than one piece from Susan. www.axisweb.org/p/susanbanks / Facebook

21  22, 23: Artist: SIMON LE BOGGIT.  Title: Tangled Up In Blue (2017). Three photos of a glazed ceramic sculpture, H 10cm x W12cm x D 10cm – Simon has not provided a website link.

24, 25, 26: Artist: EMILIE-CHRISTINE P. NEWMAN, Title: Mitailak (2013), Encaustic, stained glass, lightbox, 20cm x 25cm x 2.5cm.  All three images are of the same piece, from different angles. “Mitailak is part of the series Immaterial Instances. These three-dimensional works are created by painting encaustic onto stained glass in a process of creation that is somewhat akin to automatic writing or stream of consciousness wherein subconscious thoughts and emotions dictate the artist’s body’s movements as it applies the wax to glass rather than coming to it with specifically planned ideas of the finished work. The results are warped, non-figurative microcosmic worlds, each of which act as both escapes from and analogues to the artist’s conscious, subconscious, and physical self.  In a gallery setting, these works are displayed on plinths of varying heights, containing light boxes. They are meant to be explored from many angles, including from the top and at eye level since the works transform and reveal different meanings as they are viewed in different ways” – www.christinepnewman.com.

27: Artist: KRISTY CAMPBELL, Title: Artist Books, Assemblage (2014).  Kristy has not given us a website link.

28, 29, 30: Artist: SUSAN WRIGHT.  Title: Canticle for the Anthropecene (2017), Print – etching, monoprints and photolithography presented in the form of a bound book. 30cm x 40cm x 5cm – “This is a piece of work which I submitted for an exhibition ‘Telling in Full’, part of the Words festival at Lancaster University (Lancaster Arts) in July 2017. It was a call for artwork which responded to a specfic piece of text. The text that I drew inspiration from for this work was ‘A Canticle for Leibowitz’ by Walter M. Miller. It was realised as a series of A3 etchings on handmade paper which were then made up into a book with a fibreboard cover. The etchings have imagery from the text collaged on to them. They also were coloured by dipping in iron oxide solution and have details highlighted in gold ink. Mono print techniques and Photo Lithograpghy were used to print the details on the cover and the book was sewn using a coptic stitch” Web: suegrantwright.co.uk

The images submitted are a mix of the apparatus, performance and stains taken from Part 2 of ‘It’s So Serious Doing The Twist’. – www.joannaleah.co.uk / afternature.co.uk

37: Artist: SUSAN PLOVER. Title: In my dreams (2017).  Drawing; Paper on card. 18 x 12.5cm – www.susanplover.com

38: Artist: ALICE MARTIN. Title: AMO1 (2016), Digital art, 22 x 30cm – “The idea was to investigate the different ways in which to interrogate an object. The flatbed scan technique which I have applied allows all angles to be on display. Whilst at the same time highlighting the detail involved.  AM01 is from my Archive Boxes installation which consisted of six archive boxes storing a wealth of information based on six objects, collected from various charity shops in Aberdeen, Scotland. The intention was to explore the idea of value and engagement through a tangible experience. With a focus on ordinary, mundane objects. Therefore through an over-anaylsis, it could be argued that value has ultimately been added, which is why I decided in the end to put the artefacts back into the public domain” – www.cargocollective.com/alicecmartin.

39 – 42: ZOOX.  Title: float; (2017), Video – stills from a video from the Zoox collective.  “We were invited to take part in Creative Reactions, an initiative to connect scientists with artists. This series was developed during our collaboration and exhibited as part of the Pint of Science festival in London, 2017.  We were partnered with Dr. Gabriele Sosso at the London Centre of Nanotechnology, whose main focus of research is to study how water freezes. Whilst visiting Gabriele we were particularly fascinated to learn that as a theorist he only builds computational models as opposed to studying any physical materials. We explored this idea of simulating water through code to develop a live visualisation of the data points of the potential energy of Gabriele’s virtual water as it freezes.  We were very interested in the practical implications of Gabriele’s research, for example how his data can inform climate change research, the freezing of organs for donation, improving crop production and how to develop a water supply when we colonise Mars. We referenced these applications in developing our visuals, by taking 3D models of an iceberg, a heart, oats and the planet Mars, and manipulating their movement and aesthetics with the potential energy data. As Gabriele’s virtual water freezes (and the potential energy becomes lower), the movement of the 3D models becomes less volatile, and their true form becomes more visible. For this exhibition we would like to submit the iceberg video of the series. The images attached are video stills” – www.zoox-collective.com

43: Artist: MONICA GOLDSTEIN. Title: Book of Space. (artist book). Unique book.(1989), Altered book, 18 pages (collage, ink, colour pencils), 24 cm x 14 cm x 1 cm (closed). “This is one of my first artist books.  As long as I can remember, I have lived surrounded by books. Using the book format was a natural artistic evolution for me as my paintings in the 1980s were configured through various techniques on paper. At that moment the book was just a change in support” – monicagoldstein or see more of the artists books via vimeo.com.

44: Artist: MONICA GOLDSTEIN, Title: Subtle Geography Treaty (artist book) 1997, Unique Book. Altered book.

52: Artist: MARK PARKINSON, Title: Quite Before Dawn (2015), oil on canvas, 120×80 x4cm – “Living on inner city estates has heavily influences his work, drawing on experiences, memories and a sense of place, within it notions of working class identity. The imagery in his work is driven by responses to situations and cognition. His latest paintings use geometric shapes and colour to investigate fear, anxiety, stress and the constraints of living within these estates, the memories that taint his past and effect his future” – markeparkinson

53: Artist: CATHERINE HIGHAM. Title: Hunshelf (Snow), 2015. Acrylic and oil on canvas, 61 x 61cm – “My work is concerned with the materials and processes of landscape; both natural and fabricated. Land form, surface and space; water; vegetation; light; weather; built structures; habitats (for humans/wildlife); time & change are central elements of my practice as an artist.  This painting aims to capture a the winter morning light following a new snow fall. Although rooted in ‘landscape’ my current artwork investigates ideas of representation and relational aspects of form and non-form; figure and ground; precision and spontaneity; absence and presence. Methods of working involve deliberate actions (application of marks, tone and poured paint) and serendipity (allowing the materials to follow their own request). As with landscape, the resulting artwork is simply a record of its own making” www.cjhigham.com

54: SEAN WORRALL, observations with a camera. A shot of a chalk drawing on a Hackney Pavement, June 2017. Artist unknown

55: Artist: SANDRA BECCARELLI. Title: Mercurial Light (2016), Oil on linen, 40cm x 40cm – “A hidden grid under the blue paint, visible only in parts decided whete I would place the tones of grey. Overlaying this, the hidden grid re- emerges and is painted with Vermillion, the colour created from mercury. This highly toxic and rare paint was coveted by the old masters. I chose to use it as another quality of mercury which is forever changing and fluid. These themes of movement and change are constant themes within all my works” – sandrabeccarelli.co.uk

56: Artist: SANDRA BECCARELLI  Title: An Uncertain Place. (2016), Oil on linen, 40cm x 40cm – “This piece is about creating a system as a catalyst for randomness. Underneath the blue is a grid which was only visible in some places after rolling on the paint. These areas became the parts for my tonal explorations of light and dark shades, ranging from white to the darkest of greys”  – sandrabeccarelli.co.uk

57: Artist: ROBERT P. RYAN  Title: Covered (2017), oil on canvas, 30″ x 40″ – “Here’s a mesh of artist’s statement and description of this piece: In Victorian photography mothers needed to hold their children still to accommodate the lengthy exposure times. An interesting development in this period was the attempt to conceal the mother’s presence from the shot. They were draped in fabric in order to appear as a backdrop or as furniture.  This piece, as well as other works of mine, focuses on these figures. Their disturbing, anonymous appearance has the look of a traditional sheet covered ghost, yet they are also representative of the mother/child connection. Foreign and familiar, this piece looks at the distortion and break in that connection.  The pursuit of a female contact and how that manifests itself as a sexual desire is also of interest here. This element is represented by bare breasts which can be either maternal or erotic. The lack of any other identifying features obfuscates how this “nude” should be interpreted”   facebook.com/robertpryanart

62: Artist: CHARLOTTE NICHOLSON, Title: Lady In Blue (2016), Polychromatic print, 69cm x 90cm – “In my artwork I challenge ideas of the male gaze, voyeurism and how women have been perceived as consumable objects. My polychromatic print, Lady in Blue, symbolises the depression and anxiety that+ everyday objectification of women takes its toll on everyday people. The black shows the suppression of women, whilst the blue is symbolic of hope and lighter times to come” – http://www.nicholsonart.co.uk.

58/69: Artist: BEATA BURDELAK  Title: Not Quite There
– “My work is a way of mapping and connecting with my environment during each moment of its existence. I work with the objects and materials around me, incorporating my own language into the process of reconstruction to present them as something related to my immediate experience. There is something more to life than the material, which can only be sensed in its absence. But being aware of it, in its absence, has the potential to change our perception of reality” – www.beataburdelak.com.

70/73: Artist: JOE JEFFORD, Title: 470-495 nm (2014), Cyanotype Print, 60cm x 85cm, Cyanotype prints are inherently linked with the colour blue. It was the first process used to created engineering blueprints – “Cyanotype prints are inherently linked with the colour blue. It was the first process used to created engineering blueprints (named so because of the colour left by the photosenstive chemicals once exposed to UV light) and is considered one of the earliest photographic techniques. In this series of prints I wanted to use this process to make abstract works that still hinted at the history of the method. The paper was creased before printing to give the impression of structures and forms that look like a map or diagram. The title of the series is a reference to the wavelength of light that represents prussian blue, the dye that gives cyanotyping its colour” – joewilliamjefford.tumblr.com.

74: Artist: LINDA PARR, Title: Blue Eyes (2013), LetterMpress digital print, 36 x 26.5cm. Blue four-letter word poem – “I work with text and image, I enjoy how an artist’s approach to text can alter the way we read”. – www.lindasusanparr.com

85: Artist: CATHERINE RYAN, Title: Illuminati City (It’s OK Baby) 2011, Acrylic and mixed media on canvas, 82 x 82cm – “I decided to simplify my work in this piece by using a palette of blue. Illuminati or Blue City is an intimidating place, home to sharks, a bad doctor (Dr Mal), a grotesque cyber chicken and a lone figure surrounded by the watery shopping mecca. Shards of mirror invite the outside world in. EU stars break free. There is space at the top of the skyline, for things to breathe” www.catherineryanart.com

86/87: Artist: JAWBONE JAWBONE, Title: Where? (2017), plywood, aeroply & varnish, H – 1m 20cm W – 1m 60cm D – 12cm – “Artistically we collaborate through our third identity, jawbone jawbone.  As habitual re-users of imagery we aim to generate motifs that appear in various forms. We are interested in taking elements from previous works and jostling them around to inform new works. In this way we refer to a lot of our work as elements, rather than their more specific medium. This approach allows us to push motifs to see how far they can stretch and morph. www.jawbonejawbone.com

88: Artist: HEATHER BOXALL, title: Blue Icon (2015), oil on gesso on board, 30cm x 30cm. “Part of a series of blue monochromes that explored the symbolism of blue. ‘Blue Icon’ is a homage to Malevich’s black square” – www.axisweb.org/p/heatherboxall.
