Fairy Rings and stuff.

I know that everyone has posted about Amy Ross a million times, but I just really love her work. I first came across her work at the ArtStroll in Atlanta (which I highly recommend). I just thought I'd share a few more images. The Fairy Ring piece has always reminded me of Time Capsule by Alison Gill (below), which I saw at my favorite exhibition of all time, Dream Machines at the Camden Arts Centre.

Yesterday I found out about and find these mini worlds in an urban environment intriguing. A very slight similarity I know, but I love the variety of art!

Do visit some time. I would happily be part of a post if you felt it suited!!

“The Trouble With Women” Exhibition Press Release

16th -20th of February 2010, Private View 16th of February 6 – 8.30 pm
Menier Gallery, 51 Southwark St, London, SE1 1RU
Opening Times – Tuesday to Friday 10am-6pm, Saturday 10am-3pm. Nearest Tube London Bridge

“The Trouble with Women” brings together an eclectic body of work from a small group of Fine Art graduates from Central St Martins. The show is a humorous, lively yet sometimes dark exploration of femininity in a postmodern post feminist world. It is an exploration of women’s interior worlds as well as the way they are perceived and represented today. The works examine notions of femininity as enduring as motherhood and sexuality but also the ever changing expectations of women.

Amélie Mourgue d’Algue takes inspiration from her experiences and those collected from others. Seeking the universal in the singular, these anecdotal tales are weaved into exploration of society and politics. Combining a variety of mediums from collage to sound, found or made objects and text, Amélie’s current work is concerned with the emotional ambivalence and social ambiguity associated with contemporary motherhood.

Amanda Mulquiney is interested in the frisson between surface and imagery and the condition and inclination to turn what is seen into something representative. Her work in this show combines research steeped in the study of the pathological gesture, conundrums of the dream state and hysteria – historically thought to be solely a feminine illness. She uses collage and mixed media and produces what she describes as “two and a half dimensional paintings”

Rosa Robert’s works bring together her interest in consumerism and figurative painting. Portraits of women and self-portraits are juxtaposed with pithy sloganised statements based on material desires and self-improvement mantras. Her message is comical yet strained and focus on the preoccupation with and impossibility of women “Having it all”.

Alli Sharma’s continued interest in identity and memory has led her to examine a children’s board game she once coveted as a child. The Magic Magic Magic game includes tricks which need to be performed using the magician’s assistant, a female role model and object which fascinated her as a child. Based on this game, Alli’s still life paintings rely heavily on gesture and colour and the iconic appeal of children’s toys and plastic figurines.

Nastja Rönkkö & Luke Turner's collaborative practice is an investigation into the nature of subjectivity, desire and fantasy. Shaped by a shared fascination with the materiality of the artwork, and through the repeated use of symbolic motifs, their processes seek a means by which to grant such desires presence, engendering a birth into the world of the image.

Coral Churchill is interested in intuitive art and the role of the woman as creator. The subconscious and the symbolic are central concerns, while automatism is interwoven with observational work. Recent work reflects the social construct of femininity in a patriarchal society, looking at transformation and the shape shifter archetype.
