David Osbaldeston:  A Pastiche of Different Techniques

Exhibition runs until 25 May, 2024

Two distinct bodies of work featuring new large-scale etchings alongside sequences of screen prints on linen and paper, as well as other works in oil on paper and an archive of book works.

 

The exhibition is arranged in sequences of pairs which use collage to draw directly upon the visual characteristics found in historical print and painting processes. The artist examines relationships between images and words which he uses to represent actual or imagined identities.

Hills We Once Walked In

Thyme James’ recent work has seen her depart from her previous subject of the human figure, instead turning her recurring themes of intimacy, memory, and connection to the natural landscape.

 

Enamoured with colour, mark-making, and repeated imagery, Thyme works from a combination of field drawings and memory or imagination of the Scottish and Cornish landscapes to blend past, present, and potential futures. This coupled with her instinctive and cyclical approach to creating allows her landscapes to morph and evolve organically, producing unique environments. Her resulting ethereal landscapes aim to find familiarity within people, invoking a sense of nostalgia and, hopefully, identifying with something from their lived experience.

Print of the Month

 

each body wakes up on a wave brings together artists using diverse print and printmaking techniques to address themes of empire, migration and transcultural solidarity.

 

Through touch, heat, taste and play, the artists explore entanglements and tensions that characterise creole pluricultural landscapes while underscoring Mauritian diaspora as a case study for transculturalism and alterity.

 

The exhibition will intertwine new artwork, archival visuals, innovative textile installations, and photographs sourced from archives and libraries in Mauritius and the UK.
