  • Emily Jane Bruce: Carnival - Rising Stars 2018: One Year On

    • Saturday, 2 March 2019 - Saturday, 13 April 2019
    • Location: New Ashgate Gallery, Farnham, Surrey
    • Cost: Free admission

    Emily Jane Bruce is the winner of the prestigious Rising Stars 2018 prize and we are delighted to welcome her back for her One Year On exhibition.

    Emily_Jane_Bruce__Rising_Stars_2018_winner___Big_Top__mixed_mediaRising Stars is a platform for the most exciting new crafts by emerging makers from crafts and applied arts programmes across the UK.

    Emily Jane creates mixed media soft sculptures and traditional illustrations. Her work stems from her love of antique toys, haberdashery and lettering; items with qualities of the uncanny and the priceless period of childhood nostalgia.

    Carnival, Emily's first solo show, is a weirdly wonderful celebration of all things fantastical, bringing to life characters and creatures from the secret world of the circus and bygone showman's era. Emily's whimsical creations invite you to relive the aged splendour of the big top tent through her unique style and lovingly made details.

    Rising Stars is organised by the New Ashgate Gallery and supported by the Billmeir Charitable Trust. We work in partnership with the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham.

    Private View: 1 March 2019 (6pm-8pm)

  • Monoprints: Tessa Pearson and Louise Davies - passion for bold colour

    • Saturday, 2 March 2019 - Saturday, 13 April 2019
    • Location: New Ashgate Gallery, Farnham, Surrey
    • Cost: Free admission

    This exhibition brings together monoprints by Louise Davies and Tessa Pearson. This form of printmaking has lines or images that can only be made once, allowing for editions.

    Louise_Davies_Approaching_StormLouise Davies uses intense layers of translucent colour and overlapping shifting shapes that are pulled together by calligraphic lines that define the subject matter.

    Much of this work stems from Louise's formative years in the West of England and its countryside. Later moving to London, Louise recalls the landscape by adding her romantic notion of colour to emphasise the beauty of nature, induced by nostalgia for the past: suns rising and setting, turbulent storms, calm and troubled waters.

    Louise also uses drama and vibrant colour in her London and cityscapes. Buildings are back lit by luminescent skies that add magic and excitement to the already vibrant city. The River Thames is set alight with neon colours that reflect the mood of the image. Louise Davies R.E. is a fellow of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers. She has devoted the last 35 years to her artwork, having trained as a painter and printmaker.

    Tessa Pearson has always been in love with colour, and has spent her life seeing the world as a myriad of pattern and captivating images. Marvelling at patches of brilliant yellow in a dramatic patchwork green landscape, the glimpse of a violet pot against a cobalt blue wall will thrill her. Trained in textile design, her influences have been many, from Matisse to Hodgkin and the bold colourists of mid 21st-century painters Patrick Heron and Albert Irvin. Tessa sees gardens as living paintings: she immerses herself in the planting, responding to their colour, rhythms and characteristics. These moments have built a rich recollection of imagery for her monoprints that use unpredictable water media, experimental printmaking processes and spontaneous mark making with digital imagery. They capture the liveliness and energy from Tessa's observations. Tessa studied Printed Textile design at UCA Farnham and the Royal College of Art, where she won the Courtauld's Prize. She is also the winner of the Surrey Artist of the Year competition at the New Ashgate Gallery in 2012.
