Peter Herbert: 38 Green Carnations

38 Green Carnations provides a juxtaposition of two aspects of Oscar Wilde’s life. The early privileged family and successful background of one of the world’s most brilliant and witty writers is reflected by a portrait of the artist as a younger man, presented against fabric by the fashionable Victorian designer of the time William Morris. Photographs taken inside Reading Gaol are displayed on panels of bars as a stark indicator of the incarceration of Wilde in Reading Gaol in 1895 when tragedy ruined his life, family and career. The photographs explore the gaol for hints of its ethereal nature and reminder that Wilde was part of its system.

Popi Tsoukatou: Consanguinity (Athens)

Popi Tsoukatou’s new body of works unfolds the variations in meaning of the Latin word ‘consanguinity’, which is either defined on etymological level as blood relationship or metaphorically as an inherent correlation.

Tsoukatou appropriates photographs of both her familial and broader circle, it being either kith and kin or friends of decades past, mainly during the 1950s and ‘60s, intervening with color at places in order to create an unabridged memory lane. This way, the references in her works reflect the archetypical ascendancies of descent, upbringing, history, geography, place, caste and personal culture, which invoke the collective memory. ~ Stavros Kavallaris

Elizabeth Brown in Seeing Red

The Seeing Red exhibition fills the two floors at Espacio Gallery with glowing colour. Whether scarlet, crimson, maroon, vermilion, berry, ruby, rose, burgundy, carmine, brick, or cerise – red is both satisfying and exciting. The strong feelings suggested by the colour red – passionate love, blood and anger – are always stimulating!

Artists understand colour and use it to great advantage – as Matisse famously said: “A thimble full of red is redder than a bucketful.” The 18 colourist artists in the exhibition celebrate the many ways to see the colour red. Red can boost your energy, it exudes confidence and is life-affirming, so this show is a great place to visit in the middle of a dreary London winter.

With a focus on painting, the artwork in this group show also includes some printmaking, collage, drawing and photography.

Daniel Keys in Feminine / Masculine (Budapest)

It often seems that everything has been both said and photographed about this subject, and yet it is not possible to ignore the persistence of Feminine / Masculine in our visual culture. What is it that we can still value and possibly revive from the rich history of photography; are there any novel ways left to approach this subject with a fresh critical eye?

Other awards include the Parallax Analogue Award 2016, Black and White Photography Magazine’s Black and White Photography Award 2016, and the London Alternative Photography Collective’s Alternative Processes Award 2016.

John Levett & Claire Reddleman: An Archive of The-Yet-To-Become

The photography and the exhibition emerged from a collaboration centred on walking, urban space and trees. Working independently, yet in close discussion, John and Claire are inspired by the merging and layering of the built urban space with the floras, habitats and geological layerings of emerging urban growth. An Archive of the Yet to Become looks at the importance of trees and woodlands – and our loss of them – to the urban sphere, as well as how we make and react to the breathing spaces of commons and unadopted ‘wastelands’.

An Archive of The-Yet-To-Become is a feature exhibition of the Urban Photo Village – an event as part of UrbanPhotoFest, an international urban photography festival exploring contemporary visual practices focusing on urban life. Urban Photo Village will feature 54 participating artists in 10 different venues all located within walking distance of each other in South East London.
