Nocturnes

Tuesday 14th until Saturday 25th January

Landscape artist Alfie Carpenter presents a series of nocturnal collage paintings. Using mixed media, sentimental items and found objects, Nocturnes captures evocative, emotive and atmospheric nightscapes embracing darkness, vulnerability and the relationship between rural and urban life within East Anglia and afar.

 

Artist and musician Alfie Carpenter works with paint, paper, voices, sounds and words to create songs and scenes. Based in rural Suffolk and using a mixture of plein air and studio work, Alfie’s visual art captures the distinct landscapes of East Anglia through playful and evocative collages.

Who are we? 
Where do we come from? 

Millions of years ago, exploding stars became supanovas and scattered their dust across the universe. That dust contained carbon, and everything living on this planet is made from carbon compounds. We are all, literally stardust. 

Light painting harnesses the power and energy of light - hand-painted, weaving in and around the contours or features of our faces and bodies with a light tool during a 30-second exposure. This powerful collision of time and light combines energetically to transform us, to see ourselves in one unique moment, never to be repeated or experienced again.

Carbon is what makes charcoal black, and diamonds dazzle. It simultaneously creates and destroys. Our lives depend on it. We have to live with this chaotic universe inside of us, and exist within the universe that contains us.

Carbon C 6

28th Jan - 8th Feb 

Carrie Rogers is a poet first and foremost, she has had many of her poems published but felt she needed to compliment her writing by extending the expression of her words in the form of painting. Having tried watercolours and acrylics on canvas she was disappointed with the end result and so looked for other mediums to provide the desired effect.


Two years ago Carrie discovered that stone, slate and tiles were the medium that best suited her purpose to achieve her unique, expressive style. Some of her poetry and paintings are connected to create an experience which is visually and mentally stimulating. Her paintings of wildlife in it’s raw, untamed quality is enhanced by the organic, textural surface of the stone/ slate, reflecting her love of nature and the natural world.
she is currently in the process of combining her writing and painting to achieve her ambition of publishing a book in the coming year.

H'art of the Stone

25th Feb - 2nd March

The reason for art is that it is something worth doing for its own sake. Asking ‘why do art?’ is a bit like asking ‘why enjoy fun?’. The subject of my art is our attitude to history and knowledge generally, not history itself. People see history as a warehouse of outdated objects and ideas however ideas and thoughts, which have come down to us from the past, influence the shape of the present. 

 

Like all of us I take delight in finding new ways, or developing old ways, to push paint over a canvas. I try to see how real images might come from the activity. No-one will ever match the old masters at what they did, but we don’t need to, we have our own imaginations and we are in a different game. 

 

A common feature in my paintings is the presence of amazon women. They are a metaphor for the way our passions dominate us. If we want to possess someone or something, we may find that they come to possess us.

Strength and Beauty

11th Feb - 22nd Feb

This exhibition celebrates a year’s work, begun at the Anteros Foundation in the winter of 2018-19.  The pictures in ‘Memory/vision’ are often intensely coloured and use more-or-less recognisable images – landscapes, interiors, still life, imagery from high and low culture - but depicted and juxtaposed in such a way as to defamiliarize the subjects. 

They are part of a long series of reflections on picture-making, reimagined using contemporary processes in an art world now without movements or consensus.
