The Art of the Ever True

Image by Nicholas CopeThese recent drawings by Nicholas Cope are studies of the ‘doorway’ as a passage to the Transcendent. Of particular interest here is the idea of the ‘false doorway’, an integral concept in many Traditional cultures. This symbolic doorway is essentially a path to unity and a return to one’s origin.

Annulus Art ImageAnnulus presents an exhibition challenging and exploring human and fiscal art economies by creating a one-of-a-kind cartographic vision.

At the core of this exhibition lies the work of eight talented artists showing their own interpretations of the world, concealed by post it notes. Visitors will be able to purchase a note for only £8. One of the artists will transform it into an artwork and upload it onto an online map. Once an artwork is revealed, one of the participants will be offered it for £8. Thus, in the act of purchasing, participants reveal an interpretation of that very process.

Kathryn Prescott: What makes us care?

Image for The Big Issue Exhibition An exploration into the desensitization of the masses, into the plight of the homeless and in need, completely at odds with the celebration of other individuals in society gaining huge amounts of attention simply through media or arts related activities. What is in a face? What makes it so easy to walk past someone in need as if they do not exist? Why might we have looked twice had we recognised such a person from school or work or the television, looking equally as broken and destitute? By blurring the lines between celebrity and anonymity these images beg the question- “what makes us care?” All proceeds from prints sold from this exhibition will go to The Big Issue Foundation and Centrepoint homeless young person’s charity.
