Natural Affinity - March Exhibition Launch
Time & Location
About The Event
Following a long-awaited February re-launch which saw Artizan unveil their new look main space with the help of their stable, the Lucius Street based independent fine art gallery welcomes esteemed North Devon guest artists Jenny Smy and Gill Jones to Torbay for a three-week joint exhibition of new works in March.
“As we continue to champion the English Riviera as a destination for visual arts in South Devon, we’re trying to focus on a complimentary programme in 2019 that as well as showcasing our local talent, also invites national and international content that will challenge and inspire to Torquay.”
Gill Jones and Jenny Smy certainly fit these criteria. Working diversely across a variety of mediums, the two inform their practice with a sustained effort to challenge their own working habits, adopting a transitory approach to form and style.
In this exhibition, Natural Affinity, works lean towards abstraction, though elements of figuration remain across both collections, for a complete body of work that upholds the pairs passion for nature that they have previously been recognised for. “I draw my inspiration from the area in which I live and the proximity of the sea,” says Jenny, “Living in Devon, I am lucky that I only have to walk a mile or so to get to water. There are several rivers nearby and the local marshes and estuary often provide the inspiration and motivation for my work.”
Natural Affinity will launch on March 8th, 18:00-20:00 with the exhibition running from 4th-23rd March.
