Four artists from the NTU fine art course will be showing work in Enough is Definitely Enough, an exhibition curated by Andrew Bracey at General Practice in Lincoln.

Louisa Chambers, Geoff Diego Litherland, Danica Maier, Andrew Pepper and Gerard Williams.

Over 40 contemporary artists have made new artworks in response to a postcard version of Velázquez’s masterpiece, Las Meninas for an exhibition at General Practice in Lincoln. ‘Enough is Definitely Enough’ which opens on 30 March and runs to 13 April, features a huge variety of different artistic responses to the Spanish painter’s masterpiece - arguably the most widely interpreted of all paintings.

 

Art Historian Daniel Arasse reflected many people's view that everything, or perhaps even nothing, has been said about Las Meninas -"what's the difference, enough is definitely enough!". The artists in the exhibition build upon previous interpretations by renowned artists such as Pablo Picasso, Richard Hamilton, Francesco Goya and Eve Sussman. Artists have long been actively influenced by the centuries old painting by Velázquez; with their responses, in turn, offering influence back to Las Meninas to enable new readings. With the artworks made for ‘Enough is Definitely Enough’ there is potential for new relationships with Velasquez's original painting to open up.

 

The exhibition forms part of Andrew Bracey's PhD research at the University of Lincoln. He is exploring how contemporary artists have used and appropriated existing paintings by other artists, through a position of using the metaphor of the parasite and symbiosis in connection with painting.

 

Artists: Euripides Altintzoglou, Tristram Aver, Maggie Ayliffe, Sarah Bennett, Juan Bolivar, Andrew Bracey, Louise Bristow, Kate Buckley, Louisa Chambers, Fiona Curran, Gordon Dalton, Karen David, Annabel Dover, Leo Fitzmaurice, Rebecca Fortnum, Rachel Goodyear, Simón Granell, Tom Hackney, Sharon Hall, Lesley Halliwell, Simon Harris, Ilona Kiss, Geoff Diego Litherland, Alison Lloyd, Cathy Lomax, Rachel Lumsden, Danica Maier, David Manley, Enzo Marra, Andrew Pepper, Yelena Popova, James Quinn, Daniel Rapley, Lucy Renton, John Rimmer, John M Robinson, David Ryan, Nick Simpson, Stephen Snoddy, Soheila Sokhanvari, Annabel Tilley, Alun Williams, Gerard Williams.

Geometry: Wonky & Otherwise, Déda, Derby

3rd October - 9th November 2015.

In this exhibition eight artists show how geometric shapes still inform and delight modern painters and create vibrant works that suggest that one hundred years on from its start abstraction is alive and kicking.  The title gives a clue to the selection; whilst some of the paintings are pin sharp and disciplined others play fast and loose with the shapes.  Others across the UK join artists from Derby & Nottingham in a selection of both emerging and established names in a lively survey of what abstract painters are up to nowadays.

Exhibition curated by David Manley. Featuring: Andrew Bracey, Louisa Chambers, Lucy Cox, Terry Greene, Sarah R Key, David Manley, Andrew Parkinson, Richard Perry and Marion Piper.

A catalogue has been produced alongside the exhibition with an introductory text by Andrew Parkinson.

BAD SIGNS/adjustments
Louisa Chambers, Craig Fisher and Rob Flint are exhibiting at:

 

Atkinsons' Kram Gallery
302 Garratt Lane
Wandsworth, London SW18 4EH

May and June 2016

www.kram-gallery.org

Following a public residency at the Harley Gallery in the East Midlands the collaborative trio of Louisa Chambers, Craig Fisher and Rob Flint use Atkinsons - Kram Gallery as a project space to explore their varied interests in dazzle camouflage, hazard signage, and blurred boundaries between object and background, revelation and concealment.

During their time in this space the artists will create ’adjustments’ -intervening to alter each other's installation in ways that interrupt and redirect the points of focus in this very public space. BAD SIGNS/adjustments will be present during May and June. Adjustments will be made unannounced throughout this time. There will be a closing event end of June
