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.

Pussy Willow Mountains & Pussy Willow, 2016

Pencil drawing on Mylar, mounted on aluminium and emulsion paint. 

The three drawings of Pussy Willow takes five different historical ‘willow ware’ plate patterns as the starting point.  From these I have created a new idyllic landscape using the motifs found within the original designs. My interest arises from the range of diverse willow patterns that were produced by different factories, all using similar, equivalent markings. In my version the lovers have now become a gathering flock, hills have transformed into mountains, forests disappear into the distance, whilst the familiar trees remain in the foreground.  The wall drawing acts as a frame or wallpaper and becomes ‘host’ to the drawings.  

This piece was made for the exhibition In Return at Sheffield Institute of Art from the 2-21 February 2016.

In Return presented the latest work of Returns, a group of artist researchers from Sheffield Hallam University and Nottingham Trent University who have been exploring the legacy of post-industrial landscapes and production. Returns developed from Topographies of the Obsolete, an international cross-disciplinary project initiated by Bergen Academy of Art and Design, Norway which used the former Spode ceramics factory in Stoke-on-Trent as a place from which to consider urban ruins, and the artefacts to be found there. Since then, the researchers have focused their attention on other locations including brownfield sites in Sheffield, the brick works of Staffordshire, and the streets of Detroit, and they have repurposed objects and patterns derived from historical ceramics and the domestic contexts in which they would normally be used.

 The work here includes large scale wall drawings, sculpture, video, sound, photography and practices of walking; whilst the artists work independently to pursue their own inquiry, they return to bring their diverse findings into proximity, creating a critical conversation about making and re-making in the post industrial age.
