The distinction within this group of artists is apparent. With their varying subject matter and methodologies, this show makes for an exciting exhibition, rich with ideas and concepts. The exhibition incorporates a diversity of multidisciplinary artwork. An array of mediums is combined, including photography, sculpture and installation.

Deborah Davies (Dd)
Dd’s work is a mixture of art and technology. Fascinated by conversation and feedback loops she combines electronics with textiles, wood and LEDs producing work that is both interactive and participatory.

Chris Horner
Chris Horner graduated with a BA Honours in Fine Art from the UCA 2012 and is currently studying for his Masters in Fine Art. His work has been exhibited broadly most notably in May 2017 at the HLS Gallery for an International art show, and in September 2017 and an international arts festival in Venice, Italy.

Bianca Hendicott
Bianca Hendicott explores conceptual platforms such as the sublime and the digital aura through iPhone, film, software, fabric and installation. The work explores how light can be such a ‘body’ that affects the soul metaphysically.

Mirta Imperatori
This work reclaims experiencing the world through taking photographs. In an age where humans are pushed to be constantly connected through digital media, we are not experiencing the world directly any longer. Imperatori is concerned how we are more isolated than we have ever been.

Nerys Joseph
Nerys Joseph is revisiting a place filled with memories as a photographic artist and documents what she sees. Curiously still, this is a place that has barely changed in four decades and is somewhat frozen in time: like a living photograph, breathing you in and exhaling you out.

good good, double good

20th – 23rd July, 2017

The web was meant to be our way out but has just become more corporate than the real. But what is real anymore anyway? The past is now the present. The press has always been biased but is BuzzFeed really that different than the Daily Mail or the Sun? And why is it now that we have the possibility to be free that we are locking ourselves up? We had a glimpse of hope but it’s far away now. Politics has become just another word for perception management. The definitions of truth and knowledge have changed within our lifetimes – but nobody can quite pin down their new meanings. Whistle blowers are becoming this generations rock-stars. But what does it all mean? Meme’s replace movements. Witchcraft over science. A collapsing façade. A coherent picture that doesn’t add up. Things are good good, double good. Or are they?

tempo process + grass

74464d11-730e-48bd-9528-bdc4f6ab1261

27th – 6th August, 2017

tempo process + grass investigates the connections between spaces and processes. Exploring themes of colour, material, environment, artefact and documentation, Gabb’s continued interest in re-contextualising ‘conventional’ fine art painting practices, considers it within the experience of installation through performative actions.

Manoeuvring in and out of systems and processes, and in and out of fine art and rudimentary materials and methods, tempo process + grass seeks to invert traditional notions of formal abstraction and material contextualisation: The limits of process art are explored in the internal volume of Lewisham Arthouse which seeks to explore and fill the gallery space with a diverse composition of materials, tempered by identifiable references in pivotal points.

Jonathan’s recent work black + multiple 24, was selected by Alison Wilding for the APT Creekside Open 2017. He has been recipient of a number of highly-coveted and competitive awards, including the WW SOLO Award in 2012, and winner of the international 2014 Saatchi Art Colour Showdown competition. Following his first solo exhibition SYSTEM at the WW Gallery in January 2013, Jonathan’s second solo show at A Brooks Art Gallery in November 2013, entitled Opera Rose, was met with critical acclaim and listed in the top 5 shows to visit in Whitechapel Gallery’s First Thursdays. Jonathan has also had works exhibited at the Griffin Gallery, and at the Affordable Art Fair, London. He was nominated by AxisWeb in 2013 as one of ten contemporary artists to watch and invest in, confirming his status as one of the UK’s most exciting emerging artists.

John Berger Night: Ways of Seeing/Man with a Movie Camera

27th April 2017

Lewisham Arthouse will be participating in the New Cross & Deptford 2017 Free Film Festival (21st – 30th April).

www.freefilmfestivals.org

free film

As a tribute to John Berger who died in January, we are screening episode one of his groundbreaking TV series Ways of Seeing from 1972.

Ways of Seeing helped to re-define our approach to culture and brought Walter Benjamin’s ideas of art in the age of mechanical reproduction to a wider audience. Berger describes how the camera changed the way we perceive reality and Vertov’s 1929 masterpiece uses every trick in the cinematic book to upend our perceptions to dizzying effect.

Dynamic, playful and sexy, Man with a Movie Camera helped to expand the language of cinema in ways that still seem fresh and exciting today.

Screening at 8:00pm
Free (No ticket required – First come first served)
Running Time 30 mins/80 mins


Drawing Picasso: Life Drawing Workshop hosted by LDG

logosmall

Fri 14 April 2017

Join London Drawing Group as we return to our original home at Lewisham Arthouse for a whole day of Life-Drawing this Easter Friday!

With easels, materials and our wonderful model provided, we will be offering a tutored session inspired by Picasso’s Demoiselles D’avignon, focusing on the themes of human abstraction and the possibilities of how we deal with the human figure in drawing. Tutored by our three LDG artists, the day will begin with a series of short poses and exercises designed to get you to think differently about the way you naturally approach your drawing, building to longer sustained poses in the afternoon that will allow you to create a completed work.

At just £30 for the whole day’s drawing this is a real steal, and trust us, it will be a treat for everyone involved! Book quick – these tickets won’t hang about for long!
