The new exhibition at Studio Eleven Gallery in Humber Street brings together in Hull four wonderful professional artists at different stages in their careers.
What all have in common is a fascination and involvement with materials, intelligent visual sensibilities and interesting lives and histories.
The inspiring work on show across ceramics and painting presents us with ideas, forms and surfaces is rich in colour, history and content.
Bank Art. Studio Eleven has adopted a staged payments scheme intended to help purchasers with buying artwork over either a three or four month period. For these options further details are available from Gallery staff who will be pleased to help you make that purchase of your desired artwork.
The resident studio artists are Rob Moore - a painter and printmaker, and, Adele Howitt - designer/maker and artist working in the public realm.
Studio Eleven is proud to present the Sandy Brown Exhibition from the internationally acclaimed artist and potter.
British born, Sandy trained in Japan; her ceramic art is built from a potters foundation in the creation of sacred objects for the Japanese tea ceremony. Her work evokes this tradition and expertise but has a contemporary energy and powerful exuberance. Brown's pots, appear relaxed and almost have a naive quality of the making, however, the objects are surprisingly practical. Some of the tea bowls and trays, call directly on Japanese forms. Her expressionist use of bold colour and pattern that transcribes to pots, sculpture and paintings are more evocative of painters such as Fiona Rae, Jackson Pollock or Howard Hodgkin. Brown models female figures, which she says reflect a part of herself. These range in height from 20cms to near-life-size, and possess an historical link with such votive figures as ancient mother goddesses or the female deities.
