OmniBOSCH

Shelter in Place 1

19 July 2020 Live streaming of Shelter in Place on Sunday 6pm as part of the OmniBOSCH programme.
Using material gathered in and around the Mynydd Llangattock caving system, Shelter in Place is a
meditation on different forms of seclusion and retreat including recent Covid lockdown experiences,
extended by personal ill health.

Thanks to Lyndon Davies for the accompanying soundpiece and to tactileBOSCH.

Kohtuus – Yhteys – Tasa-arvo

Aftermath 1_

One of four drawings sent to Finland’s GalleriaKONE as part of Kohtuus – Yhteys – Tasa-arvo the international summer exhibition in Hämeenlinna, with 34 artists from Finland, Germany and Wales.
Jun 27 – Aug 29 2020
Raatihuoneenkatu 14, Hämeenlinna, Finland.

Based in a former shopping centre, the show’s title,  ” Kohtuus – Yhteys – Tasa-arvo: Cooperation, Moderation, Equality” is a rethinking of the Enlightenment motto “Freedom, Brotherhood, Equality”. Co-curators Maija Helasvuo and Marja Bonada say the thinking is that the individualistic ideas of the Enlightenment have brought us to capitalism, and eventually to climate change and the collapse of capitalism. The task now is to ask what we got wrong, and how we might need to rethink those ideas.

poete assassine 14

Group painting show at Oriel Canfas, Cardiff, curated by Jo Berry with principles of Dada in mind.
11 – 26 Jan 2019

Paintings that either reject a traditional aesthetic, display a sense of the absurd, experiment with modes of display or use collage, appropriation or juxtaposition. Paintings to raise some awkward questions about painting. The artists in the show are all members of Painters Club.

Canalworks

Lining 5x4'

Exhibition and related events exploring major engineering works on the Monmouthsire & Brecon Canal.

During the winter of 2016 /17 the Llangattock stretch of the canal was closed and drained for repair and re-lining, interrupting the flow of water and navigation from the Beacons to the Sea. This exhibition shows these engineering works in progress, in the context of industrial heritage and the interchange of human and natural forces. Painting, drawing, video and found objects from the canal, its feeder streams and the interconnecting network of paths, tramways and roads. For more on this see Canalworks blog and Canalchemy
