PREVIOUS EXHIBITIONS AT THE ART HOUSE

TERRY BROOKER – 29th April – 26th May 2017.

Terry studied at Goldsmiths 1972-5 and moved to Sheffield in 1998.  He has been involved in several individual and group exhibitions and primarily works in acrylics and ceramics.

I want you to be as excited as I am about images and art pieces. Colour, movement, gesture, memories, experiences, touch and texture played out through rules of materials. I want to engage the viewer enough so that they stop and become absorbed in the paintings and ceramics. I want the viewer to feel invited to a visual experience that is as good as friendship. Valued, validated, purposeful, exploring meaning and understanding the world we live in. Well, that’s my hope anyway.

Exhibition 1st – 8th February 2017

A form is a perceivable shape, it could be imagined or visible; to make something Formed is to render it complete, definite, resolute.

Formed is a month long residency which will result in a week long exhibition of new work by Bethany Costerd and also a workshop run by the artist. The project was born out of the artist’s desire to create more permanent works. Bethany has since worked predominately with plaster, using her own drawings as a starting point. Plaster is very fragile, which renders the work temporary, more like fleeting ideas and memories than finished objects – Bethany’s recent work explores this further through the relationship between colour and plaster, the colour moves around the plaster body, then eventually fades to nothing.

Now Bethany wishes to freeze time; to capture a painterly quality of glaze, but also to spend longer crafting a form. This new work will show similarities to Bethany’s recent work in that there is still an element of chance; Bethany has control over the form, but less so with the colour, you never know exactly what will come out of the kiln.
