Chances to Visit Artist Community on Johnsons Island
On the Thames with two forthcoming artists' shows
The Brentford Gallery located on Johnson’s Island has a flurry of shows coming up…
Joseph Fairweather Hole has a show 4-6th of October
No One's Just Zero exhibition, by Joseph Fairweather Hole, showcases a series of works inspired by research trips to rural Ireland and Arctic Norway, where the artist explored new and familiar landscapes, on foot, and by boat, hiking and camping in go-liminal places. creating artworks at site and in studio on a Thames Ait.
The exhibition presents responses through a series of large scale drawings that combine extremes of miniscule detailed and painstaking repetition with large gestural strokes, these pieces carry a physicality that depict their contrasting modes of creation.
The Island is formed by a loop in the River Brent and is accessible via a footbridge from Catherine Wheel Road or Dock Road.
Weathered - 25-27 October - Brentford Gallery
Liz Green is travelling all the way down from Inverness, to exhibit her weathered themed paintings in our aptly weathered gallery. 26-27th October.
‘Weathered’ by Liz Green explores surfaces and places exposed to the elements, transformed by age and water. Be they faded, cracked, blistered, reflected in water or modified in other ways, the emerging textures, patterns and colours can be compelling and draw the eye, especially in low light. There can be surprising convergence in form, for example between fractured lead paint, birch bark and human skin in twilight years. Past use and industrial history adds a further layer of depth and poignancy to the weathering process, obscuring remnant meaning and signposting the past.
