Landscapes

Louise thompson vase medium1A rather unusual post for the news section, but we have definitely had a landscape theme running through the gallery of late.

This vase is by Louise Thompson, who decorates her stoneware ceramics with abstract landscapes.

Janie Ramsay jug riverJanie Ramsay is also a ceramicist inspired by landscapes, with a very different technique and effect.

If you prefer a wall pieces, why not take a closer look at Nicola Crocker’s work.Nicola Crocker landscape

Landscapes are not only found on ceramics here at 45 Southside. We still have a few pieces left from the textile exhibition, with Sue Spooner, Emma West, Beverley Bailey and Jane Price offering their interpretation of landscapes in weaving, embroidery and ceramics, which started as embroidery.SueSpooner-TheShadowOfTheBelltower- web

For all insects lovers and budding entomologist

Green_HawkerWe have so much insect inspired art and jewellery at the minute, that I thought they deserved their own post. Adorn your walls with dragonflies made out of embroidered silk in boxes, butterflies made from wirework or a poetrytile featuring a grasshopper.Insect-LazyQuote

 

 

Kate Packer also makes bug and moth brooches as well as earrings and necklaces.Kate packer bugs They are all made from a combination of her intricately woven coloured metal wire and semi-precious stones or beads.

remon jephcott cameo fly broochFlies, spiders and butterflies are also part of Remon Jephcott’s Victorian inspired ceramics. For her jewellery range she combines images of flies and spiders with traditional shapes and gold or silver lustre.

Textile Artist in the Spotlight : Jane Price

Textile8Today’s artist in the spotlight is Jane Price. Exactly four years ago, her work was our very first feature exhibition. At the time, Jane worked with inlaid papers and photo- and lucidagrams. Even though her work is mixed media, her first love was always textiles.

“45 Southside encourages experimentation which is an encouragement to an artist. This gallery has accepted and welcomed my diverse works in paper and textiles. My current brightly coloured abstracts have channelled an interest in saturated colour combi-nations; the works are like paintings but are also embroidered.”

box web“Being an artist involves developing new ideas, acquiring skills, responding to outside stimuli of time and place and implementing this acquisition of experience. Not repeating yourself is a challenge as it is a process of self discovery, but it is essential to keep studio practice vibrant. I believe in inclusion rather than exclusion and looking at drawing, painting, sculpture, architecture, photography, textiles, and papermaking are all enriching and interconnected disciplines! This cross fertilization is evident in the works I produce.”

Jane lives and works from her studio in Exeter and has been a member of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen for 25 years where she frequently exhibits.

Some of Jane’s work is also available in the online gallery and more will be added very soon.

Feast your senses on textiles

Textile1This must be one of the most sumptuous and tactile exhibitions we have ever had. Come and see for yourself tomorrow from 3pm with a chance to meet some of the artists.

It is British wool week this week, which is a good reason to feature Debbie Rudolph’s weaving.

We will feature the other artists, fellow weaver Sue Spooner, contemporary embroidery by Jane Price and Beverley Bailey, mixed media textiles by Helen Edwards as well as ceramic panels, which started as embroidery by Emma West, in the coming days here in our news page..

Textile11Artisan Weaver Debbie Rudolph lives in Cornwall and gained extensive weaving experience during a degree from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London followed by a weaving scholarship with the International Wool Secretariat. Debbie uses her experience to create wonderful materials, which she turns into scarves, cushions, purses and bags. She weaves on a 40 year old Swedish made ‘Lillstina’ Loom. Her designs use surface texture and a bold approach to colour to create visually exciting and tactile beautiful textiles which conjure up other cultures and eras, while remaining refreshingly contemporary.

Find out more about the event on Saturday 19th October here.

Rich Hues of Blue – Full of Energy

Frances-ReachingForTheStarsWe have some lovely blues in the gallery this month. Full of energy, there is nothing melancholic about these pieces. This vessel by Frances Spice positively shines with a combination of a rich dark blue and gold lustre. It is called ‘Reaching for the stars’.

From sky to sea. Richard Glass makes wonderfully fluid sculptures inspired by water like his ‘Splash‘ sculptures and vases.spalsh_vase_blue -web

Delan Cookson uses the sea as his inspiration from his studio overlooking the Hayle estuary. His own recipe bright blue glaze on his porcelain vases and bowls has become his trademark and his work is widely collected.delan cookson candlestick This candlestick is a rather unusual piece for Delan and based on balusters.

Sarah-LustreHousesSarah McCormack is mostly known for her ‘stroppy clocks‘. But her further ceramic works have a large ever-growing and devoted following, too. These ‘Houses on a Hill‘ in copper and blue, raku fired, are a good reason why. Her work encourages to play and combine in quirky ways. These houses are separate from the ‘Hill’ and can be rearranged.

Hamlin and wright glass panelThe walls should not be neglected. Hamlin and Wright have a range of very energetic glass wall panels.

Jane Price will be part of our textile exhibition starting on the 18th of October.jane price 8 pins Please mark Saturday the 19th in your diaries for your chance to meet the artists here at the gallery from 3pm.

Lincoln Kirby-Bell famous for his very colourful and tactile tableware has made this rather unusually (for him) monochrome wallplate in blue.Lincoln-BlueWallplate Visit us to see many more works in shades of blue and many other colours, too, of course. Some of these works can be found in our online gallery for more detail.

Jane Price will be part of our textile exhibition in the autumn

box webHere at 45 Southside we are currently planning a textile exhibition from 18th October – 17th November 2013. Jane Price is one of the five artists who will be exhibiting. Part of the exhibtion will be three artists who have not exhibited with 45 Southside before, Debbie Rudolph, Sue Spooner and Emma West.

Jane has recently delivered some of her new work, a little taster of her textile work. Many of you will remember Jane for her stunning inlaid paper and three-dimensional mixed media pieces, but textiles and stitiching have always been part of her work.
