'What the Eye Doesn't See'

Julie Cockburn

December 2008

JULIE COCKBURN'S second show at Seven Seven is about looking and seeing. More autobiographical than her first show, it embraces personal emotions of envy, desire, lust, jealousy, loss and re-finding.

 

 

Vernacular

Alan Bond

November 2008

New drawings based on an abandoned barn seen in Italy and made from found materials and of low tech construction. With its impromtu opportunist joinery, and ecletic materials, the drawings reference recent architectural installations made by the artist.

'Silent Witnesses'

Caroline List

May 2008

Caroline List documents the dying trees of the ancient Sherwood Forest. The painting ‘Supporting Major Oak' is based on the famous oak tree associated with Robin Hood. The tree, which has now become a tourist attraction, is over 800 years old and is supported by scaffolding to prevent it from subsiding and disappearing from history. The artist has become increasingly aware that what remains has been selectively preserved for tourism and questions the reality of ‘heritage'.

'Vista'

Rachel Labovitch

April 2008

Prolonged engagement with these serene and elegant drawings reward the viewer revealing more and more detail and complexity in both their construction and psychological presence

'Propositions for Cities'

Mary Yacoob

March 2008

Inventive drawings sourced from imagination and from Science Museum machines proposing slender vertical cities.

'New Paintings'

Robin Dixon
Karen Douglas

Feburary 2008

These artists have in common a love of paint and relate their experiments with the medium to both the history of painting and contemporary themes. While Robin Dixon explores the physical mysteries of matter and energy, Karen Douglas engages with our psychological relationship to nature.

'Dulce et Decorum est'

Dave Farnham

January 2008

Dave Farnham creates images reflecting on the representation, rather than the truth of War; (what Owen calls “the old lie”). An exploding field of valour where courage and moral fortitude overcome death.
Although we soon realise these images are deliberate fakes, somehow they defy our reason, creating a powerful and emotionally convincing presence.

'Allotment'

Jörg Obergfell
Yo Okada
Debra Scacco
Jan Stradtmann
Rachael Weitzman

December 2007

New graduate and young artists depict stories derived from their experiences of London life. Danger, anger, catharsis, and absurdity sit side by side in this entertaining show

‘see-saw '

Anka Dabrowska

November 2007

Anka Dabrowska revisits her childhood with images that reference Poland in the era of martial law. Communism meets consumerism in these quirky drawings made on paper bags.

‘The Cloud Series '

Dawn Shorten

October 2007

In this, her first solo exhibition, Dawn Shorten brings together cloud paintings with map based objects called ‘conic projections’. Together they show a respect, even a sense of anxiety, in the face of nature’s greatest displays. The portrayal of storms, rocks and wave surges can be seen as metaphors for the trials of human existence.

 

‘Affinity'

Emma Holden

September 2007

In Emma Holden's work natural and manmade materials cohabit outside of their normal context questioning the fixed rules and meanings that we apply to our everyday experiences. The notion that the disposable is undesirable is binned and the honesty of her production is laid bare. Her passion for nature and the internal logic of organic structures is played out as she breathes new life into discarded and domestic materials such as Christmas trees, polystyrene and brown paper.

B.S.T.

Karen Douglas
Andrew Griffiths
Camilla Wilson
Mark Wright

August 2007

B.S.T. (British Summer Time), is an off- centre look at summertime experiences by four accomplished painters. The show includes Karen Douglas's large landscape "Polytunnels", in which greenhouses take on another identity and suggest futuristic protection from the elements. In Mark Wright's mysterious painting, partially submerged and synthetic trees, coincidently connect to climate change and recent flooding. Camilla Wilson's "After Manet" depicts a figure who may be sunbathing, sleeping or dead. Andrew Griffiths references English eccentricity and gardens as a space for unplanned encounters.

Mikey Cuddihy

Painted Fiction

June 2007

Mikey Cuddihy shares her time between fictional writing and the visual arts. In this show tiny ephemeral doodles undergo a transition to become dramatically enlarged ink drawings on translucent paper or exhuberant and colourful painted paper cut-outs

"COME INTO MY BEAUTIFUL GARDEN"

Julie Cockburn


May 2007

Julie Cockburn makes creative interventions in the old books, out of date maps and magazines that she accumulates. Patiently and beautifully crafted, these essentially flat objects explode into sculptural collages. She introduces ideas to found objects that generate dialogues about modernity and art history, gender and identity, nature and urbanity and the relationship between process and idea. Cockburn avoids being didactic by a deftness of touch and a lively wit that wills her audience to engage with and enjoy her work.

Mist and Bells

Robin Dixon
Rachel Labovitch
Caroline List

March-April 2007

 


Robin Dixon's inventive and unusual compositions, make visible unseen energies such as radio waves and theoretical structures underpinning cloud formations.

Rachel Labovitch describes the sensation of forms emerging and dissolving in mist.

Caroline List‘s interpretation of landscape is influenced by both our direct engagement and collective memory. Exploring the relationship between photography and the process of painting, her work hovers between fact and fiction.

. . . anything inside a no-ship is hidden from prescient vision and other methods of detection . . .
this happens because no-ships fold space to travel nowhere very fast . . .
they move so quickly it's impossible to see exactly what it is that they are doing unless you are actually there.

'ARTIFICIAL ECOLOGIES'

Claudia Pasquero
Marco Poletto

June 2006

STEM is a "living" screen system; it will grow and evolve its physical qualities (shape, transparency, breathing potential) out of its relationship with sun light; light will be filtered and captured for photosynthetic operations; oxygen will be produced and carbon dioxide adsorbed; more light will result into more oxygen production and more screening potential; less light will turn into less photosynthesis and more transparency; will STEM be flexible enough to find a positive equilibrium within the gallery environment? Will people be able to enjoy the hyper oxygenated softly lit cocoon generated by STEM or constant artificial intervention will be required? Will STEM constitute an example of a successful “artificial ecology”?

"Solo Sakuma"

‘pardon’

Hana Sakuma

May 2006

 

 


 

This show is sponsored by CEN Magazine and Cobra Beer.

‘pardon’ an installation by Hana Sakuma winner of the CEN Award for Visual Arts

CEN Magazine celebrates and reports on the arts and creative industries in East London. Seven Seven nominated Hana Sakuma for CEN magazine’s first annual awards that took place in November 2005.

Hana Sakuma’s work is typified by a heightened sensibility and thoughtfulness that quietly and persistently engages her audience. Her own poetic description of the piece for Seven Seven, which forms part of the installation, announces the work perfectly.

Against a sky blue background lots of bells have been stacked.
People can sit on the chair and wait. Eventually the bells fall off.
As they do, they make a tinkling noise. Glued to the wall, the bells lose
their function, they are silent, held captive. Only when they fall do they
regain their power and as they tumble the work slowly decays.

 


'Just around the corner from here..'

Zoe Buser

May 2006

Zoe Buser’s work is born out of a fascination with the built environment, more specifically that of architecture and the way it defines occupies, orders and re-negotiates space. She is interested in the way she experiences these buildings and the differing ways they can be perceived. Zoe Buser sees herself as an observer, collecting and recording experiences that are taken away and deciphered in her studio. Her aim is to activate spatial experiences and in the process reveal a hidden reality. ‘Buildings are like blueprints of our society’, she says, ‘They can be read’.

Zoe Buser's exhibition at Seven Seven comprises of a site specific 3-dimensional drawing in the gallery basement and four small pieces that extend their spatial references into the gallery

"they also draw"

Meryl Ainslie

Chloe Briggs
Helen Barff
Anka Dabrowska
Emma Holden
Jeni Snell

April 2006

For a variety of reasons artists may draw behind the scenes of their best-known public practice. depending on the artist they may wish to diversify their practice and explore another area. The drawings may have a function in the development of projects. The artist may have a primeval instinct to engage with materials, narrative or description. Or simply, the drawings may be made for recreation.


"On the Various Means of Reanimating Dead Tissue"

Gareth Brookes
Andrew Hladky
Jonas Ranson

March - April 2006

The concept of the Zombie turns up at every level of contemporary culture, from the most lucid horror movie to the philosophic skirmishing of Dualists and Materialists. It is an idea so instantly graspable yet so undermining to our natural reason that it fascinates the meta-physicists and the pre-pubescent boy equally.


"MCtwo"

Frederique Decombe
Richard Ducker
Daniel Chalmers

March 2006

Through a series of systematic processes of production, the artists reveal within repetition an attempt at individuality. Between hand to paper, description to
paper, and description via machine, there is a chain reaction of uncertainty that undermines reality's apparent veracity.

"Outside In"

Jayne Lloyd

Feburary 2006

Letters Home from Taiwan, Lost Soles from Nepal and Stairwells in Edmonton form the subject of this innovative photo installation.

"David Harker"

David Harker

January - February 2006


Liz Brooker's 'down at the station - images of Indian rail'

Jessica Parker's 'serenity found'

Jessica Parker believes what is openly observed in our environment has a tangible and intangible impact. Shot on a 1960’s toy-camera, Parker’s images of the New Zealand landscape create a visual and emotional history and record her own sense of calm, freedom and joyfulness

'Connecting Spaces'

Kezia Cantwell-Wright

September 2005


‘Connecting Spaces’ is an exhibition of new work by the emerging multi-disciplinary artist Kezia Cantwell-Wright. The exhibition comprises photographs, drawings and interactive sculptures. The former explores the geometry and structure of modernist architecture, and the relationships between different elements, which acts as a metaphor for the relationships between sections of society. The drawings quote both architecture and puzzles, such as Rubik’s cube, in their exploration of geometry and spatial relationships, presenting the city as something that can be taken apart and put back together in another formation. Finally Kezia’s new sculptures, a hybrid between construction toys, such as Lego, and architectural models, allow viewers to explore the urban landscape for themselves by playing with the given forms and colours.

'Dislocated Ground'

Carey Dean,
J L Dean,
Jessika Worrall

August 2005

The postmodern emphasis on interpretation and reference has spawned a generation of artists that have worked so extensively with readymade and appropriated material, that the actual engagement between ideological and physical materials is reduced to a mere incidence. While the creative commitments of the exhibiting artists preclude them from producing anything conceivably documentary, their work represents a tangible commitment to the search for engaging subject matter.

'In The Clearing'

Jane Thurley
Ann Marie Peña

July-August 2005

 

An exhibition featuring photographic work, collage and drawings by Jane Thurley and Ann Marie Peña (in collaboration with Dora Longo Bahia).
Jane Thurleys' creates collages . These large-scale collages depict scenes of city parks and other forms of created nature from layering specifically chosen wallpapers. She is interested in the effect of urbanisation on tradition.
Ann Marie Peña uses photography and found images to produce works that reference architecture, communication and urban environments. Here, in collaboration with Brazilian Artist Dora Longo Bahia, she has created a photographic installation comprised of images taken over a three-month period in South Africa. They question the role of nature in city centres and consider how nature is often consumed and manipulated to suit, and disguise, the needs of urban development.

Lee Clough,

'Photographs'

Theresa Mikuria

June 2005

 


Theresa Mikuria, a Japanese-Taiwanese photographer known in East Asia both as an artist and for her work in the fashion and music industries, presents her first UK solo exhibition at the Seven Seven Gallery in London. The photographs here vary widely: locations include San Francisco, Hong Kong, Taipei, Solan (India), Tokyo, North Carolina; the subject-matter ranges from Buddhist ceremony to dilapidated machinery via bucketfuls of squid; colour portraits appear in the same room as long-exposure pinhole polaroids and black and white still lifes. Yet the works here are united by a single common thread, evident in every image: the photographer’s love for both her subjects and the photographic medium itself.


'Hometown'

Anka Dabrowska

May - June 2005


Hometown is an exhibition of new drawings on paper and photographs of miniature interiors by Anka Dabrowska.

'Wall To Wall' part III
'Small Wonder'

Nicky Hodge

May 2005

Unnerving, enchanting, shamelessly idiosyncratic. Every image has a secret hinge, an opening from the physical world - a Lilliput gaggle behind the eye, an opaque memory that greys and cracks and crumbles.

January - February 2005

Subordinating the pleasure principle to the reality principle is done through a psychological process Freud calls SUBLIMATION, where you take desires that can't be fulfilled, or shouldn't be fulfilled, and turn their energy into something useful and productive.

-Mary Klages

Five artists created an installation divided in three; a presentation room, a monster-container and a dark basement.

'On Leaving the Shadow World'

Jeffrey Du Vallier D'Aragon Aranita

January 2005

 

On Leaving The Shadow World

An art cycle that is incomplete. It reflects time. Memories of the blind shamanist. Orphaned at age three. A young boy. Hiding and secretly watching. The spirit world. The shadow world of concepts, passions and conceits.

Aranita won the 2004 Sovereign Contemporary Asian Art Award. Trained in photography by Ansel Adams and Minor White, Aranita was an arts professor at the Baptist University and the City University of Hong Kong and is considered one of the most important emerging artists living in China today.

THE SIN OF SILENT READING

There is no disputing the fact that the Romans read everything aloud, in fact they were apparently not able to read silently. Of course there is one major benefit: one savors the sounds and enjoys minute changes of meaning and inflections of mood.


It is said that a modern student must be able to read forty pages of non-technical prose an hour simply to be able to keep up with college assignments. One marvels at how much is covered, but cannot help wondering how much is missed. - William Harris

'sound disturbance'

Anne Robinson

October 2003

The work in Sound Disturbance engages with the fleeting moment taken from the context of TV or film: with selected frames remixed. The artist is concerned with the resonance for the viewer of the still image removed from its context; in paintings or prints having the richness of a film narrative constrained by place, position and time; in the surface of the image offering fleeting moments of joy and lasting depths for contemplation - the gaze moving across the surface, through colour, and into the depth of the picture.
