I am honoured that my work is featured on the cover of Walthamstow’s E-List magazine for January 2014.
A great range of media and techniques on dispay here from talented artist Julie Caves. From tiny egg tempera portraits painted from life in a single sitting, to the huge, intensly colourful abstract ‘monolith’ series, there is something here for everyone. Around every corner in the surprisingly large (and very atmospheric) crypt gallery, lurks another surprise. As well the varied series’ of paintings exploring the use of colour, there is site-specific installation work, drawing on the inspiration the space itself provided. At times I felt (wonderfully) lost in the space, as well as the work itself. Arcrylics in the ‘Spring’ series had so much depth to the that viewing was like staring into an infinitely deep pool.
In sharp contrast (but great compliment) to Caves’ colour-saturated work, guest artist H Locke has taken over one of the crypt’s vaults with an impressive 9-metre long fantastical monochrome drawing, depicting the growth of a city and the activities of its many inhabitants, both above and below ground. Shown in this labyrinthine gallery space it was easy to imagine that you might take a turn and stumble upon one of these subterranean workers going about their bizarre business.
Overall I really enjoyed this show, and it was a joy to be able to talk to the artists (who I am told who can be found at the exhibition most days) about their work, which adds another dimension. I highly recommend a visit.
