CLAIR CHINNERY: UNRULY OBJECTS
14 November – 21 December
Please note that this exhibition will close on Saturday 21st December, a day earlier than advertised in the brochure.
Oxford-based artist and academic Clair Chinnery has a background in sculpture, but works regularly across and between traditional media boundaries. Her interests stem from a curiosity about objects, institutions and individual/collective memory. Unruly Objects presents a range of two and three-dimensional artworks, evoking historic, institutional and domestic environments. This exhibition will include works commissioned for the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad as well as works from the project Cuculus Prospectus in which the parasitic habits of the Cuckoo are used as a metaphor for human colonialism, migration and shifting ecologies.
9 January – 16 February
Coasts and landscapes inspire this work that explores colour, texture, composition and the ephemeral qualities of light, from the representational to abstraction.The paintings have surfaces that differ in quality depending on whether they are viewed up close or from a distance and also change with the light within a given space, so the paintings retain a dynamic quality for the viewer.Janine writes: ‘I begin a painting by immersing myself in an environment that inspires me. I often revisit some of these areas at different times of year to see how the changing seasons have affected the quality of light, the colours and textures.’
