IMPRINT

Art Hub Gallery is delighted to present  "....whose dwelling is the light of seting suns..."

IMPRINT by John Jones

10 – 25 MAY 2014

Thursdays to Sundays 1 - 5pm

Private View Friday 9 May 6 – 9pm

Jones is an artist-printmaker, specializing in figurative colour linoprints. His subjects are derived from memorable sightings and occasions, often based on his coastal or moorland surroundings in Yorkshire. He explores varied interpretations of his chosen topics by modifying the printing techniques. The prints are produced by the 'reduction-block' method by which successive overlaying colours are printed progressively from the same linoblock or blocks, with the block(s) being cut or etched away (ie 'reduced') between each colour stage. This ensures accurate colour registration, but also means that only one edition of each complete image is possible. He uses an 1840 'Albion' cast-iron platen handpress to produce his prints. Jones has refined the technique to achieve an intensity and depth in his work. Using a subtle but rich palette, he displays an expert eye for composition, draughtsmanship and colour.

There will be an opportunity to meet the artist and hear him talk of his work on Saturday 24 May from 2.30 – 3.30pm.

The talk is free but places are limited. To ensure your booking please contact the gallery manager Lou Beer on 07970 628854 or email arthubgallery@gmail.com

PSYCHO.GEOGRAPHY

 

 

A group show of 10 artists, PSYCHO.GEOGRAPHY invites you to explore our complex relationship with the city we inhabit.  

The term Psychogeography was formally defined by Guy Debord as:

the study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behaviour of individuals.(Introduction to a Critique of Urban Geography, G. Debord, 1955).   

While Debord is credited with the commonly accepted definition of Psychogeography within the Situationist framework, its roots go much deeper (D. Defoe, W. Blake, de Quincy, etc.), but more importantly wider – impossible to apprehend and based entirely on personal significance attributed by an individual in interaction with their environment.  

Curated by Marina Potok, the exhibition explores how the rich, fast-paced, sharp-edged reality of city life can shape our experiences, emotions and behaviour or simply slip through our consciousness leaving just a trace of our memory.

 

 

 Private View from 6 - 9pm on Thursday 6 March.

Exhibition open from 7  to 16 March on Thurs, Fri, Sat and Sun from 12 - 5pm

We look forward to welcoming you.

Guy Arzi exhibits in Greenwich

 

Guy Arzi, an Art Hub artist/maker, is currently exhibiting at the Greenwich Tourist Information Centre, Royal Naval College, Greenwich.

Guy Arzi is an Israeli born, London based maker.  He studied Fine Art and Conservation in the UK and has since worked in the heritage conservation sector in buildings such as Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral, Kenwood house and Café Royal.  His interest in wood, carvings and architectural elements is evident in his recent Candle Arbara Collection. Guy uses salvage in making his artwork and his studio is full of curiosities, architectural salvage wood components from Victorian and Georgian buildings and antique furniture.  The Arbara Collection is his take on the visual language he finds during his work on heritage buildings and is a documentation of the uniquely British, historical design that surrounds us.

 

The Arbara Collection will be exhibited daily from 10am - 5pm at the GTIC, Discovery Greenwich Centre, Pepys House, 2 Cutty Sark Gardens, Greenwich, London, SE10 9LW
