To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour
William Blake, Auguries of Innocence

With a whole cosmology of mega data and imagery now readily available at the touch of a screen, artists are free to make up their own worlds, hybridising versions of reality, mixing it up, musing, humouring, personalising and confounding as they go. Lucy in the Sky presents five very personal visions of the stuff that surrounds us.

Drawing Limerence

by Lynn Willmott & Karen Lang
Published by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
Available on Amazon

          Unknown

Limerence is an irrational, obsessive and incapacitating adoration of and attachment to one person. This book is a collection of artworks from artists across the world that are inspired by, or represent, limerence in the belief that art can provide insight into this experience. It aims to promote awareness and to raise funds for future research and will appeal to both art lovers and those interested in the subject of limerence.

Featured Artists: Krista Acheson / Bonita Bruch / Janet Brusselbach / Joe Bussell / Dr Subhas Chandra Das / Amanda Dabel / Amalia Dulhan / Gary Goodman / Dania Grevengoed / Gina Kalabishis / Lisa Krannickfeld / Karen Lang / Claudia Mengel / Ellie Seymour / Corinna Spencer / Bernadette Trela / Via Violet / Daniela Vladimirov

For Sex Shop, curators Sarah Gillham, Jack Stokoe and Darren Nairn invited 50 artists, designers and creative people to develop a prototype version of their own sex or fetish object. Playfully engaging with issues surrounding sex and desire the responses span a wide range of different media, from 3D maquettes, to 2D visualisation, time-based pieces, and references to panoply of sexual practices, fetishes and merchandise. They are by turns personal, provocative and usable.

Sex Shop’s first incarnation, in the south coast resort of Folkestone, played on ideas of the seaside town as a place of secret liaisons and dirty weekends, conducted against a scenic, yet simultaneously shabby and dilapidated backdrop. The ‘sex shop’ is of course a seaside staple, often selling genuine sex aids flanked by an assortment of humorous trinkets and throwaway paraphernalia. Sex Shop now tours to the very different surroundings of design conscious Hackney, a place where pleasure seeking is taken very seriously.

(detail) features the work of 118 international artists, including Alexis Harding, Dan Hays, Robert Holyhead, Narbi Price, Jamie Shovlin and Emma Talbot, who have each selected a close-up from one of their paintings. These details are printed and displayed together to give both a tantalising glimpse into each artwork, and create a huge collage of images.

The exhibition launched at H-Project Space, Bangkok in June 2014 where it responded to the unique setting of the gallery, a traditionally constructed Thai house. The 118 artworks fitted into the distinctive wooden framework of the walls, completely filling and transforming the space. The show will be re-imagined in a new configuration as it moves to Transition and then on to Usher Gallery, Lincoln. Seen on mass, the different artworks will became a form of collage. Connections between the painting details are deliberately made by the curator in the display, as well as being formed serendipitously. Viewers are encouraged to make their own associations and interpretations of the juxtaposition of images.

(detail) features a wide range of painters, from the well-established to recent graduates. Their work encompasses abstraction, landscape, figuration and conceptually driven practices and employs a wide variety of mediums.

The reproduced close-up allows us to focus on the brush strokes, surface and minutiae of the painting. It is most commonly used in the art world in the pages of the exhibition catalogues or monographs. The idea of the detail is also something that is particular to the painters’ approach to both making a painting and viewing work in the gallery.

The exhibition’s curator Andrew Bracey explains:
‘In the studio I have found my own relationship to working on a painting is up close to it, with only occasional glimpses of the whole as I step back. This focus on this particular painter’s viewpoint of the painting provoked the idea for this exhibition. This exhibition is an attempt to bring this studio mentality to the gallery. There is a power in the detail, it offers up fresh possibilities for viewing painting.’

(detail) is an innovative new exhibition that features the work of 118 international artists, who have each selected a close-up from one of their paintings. These details will be printed and displayed together to give both a tantalising glimpse into the artworks, and create a huge collage of images. The exhibition is first presented at H-Project Space in Bangkok, before being reconfigured at Transition Gallery in London and The Usher Gallery in Lincoln.

At H-Project Space the exhibition responds to the unique setting of the gallery, a traditionally constructed Thai house. The 118 artworks fit into the distinctive wooden framework of the walls, completely filling and transforming the space. Seen en masse, the different artworks become a form of collage. Connections between the painting details are deliberately made by the curator in the display, as well as being formed serendipitously. Viewers are encouraged to make their own associations and interpretations of the juxtaposition of images.

The show is re-presented and re-imagined as it moves from H-Project Space to the more conventional exhibition spaces of Transition Gallery and The Usher Gallery, creating a show that is site-responsive to each venue.

(detail) features a wide range of painters, from the well established to recently graduated; their work encompasses abstraction, landscape, figurative, expanded field and conceptually driven practices; and features a full variety of paint mediums, including oil, gouache, watercolour, acrylic, ink and pigmented silicone.

The reproduced close-up allows the visitor to focus on the brush strokes, surface and minutiae of the painting. It is most commonly used in the art world in the pages of the exhibition catalogues or monographs. The idea of the detail is also something that is particular to the painters’ approach to both making a painting and viewing work in the gallery.
