Nineveh Art Gallery - New Opening at ‘Haptic Curves’
The new exciting show at 11 The Pallant has opened with a journey through the landscape with TigerFox exploring a continuous painted horizon. The viewer experiences the nature of changing light, reflecting our dialogue with the coastline. This figurative work leads into the abstract assemblages of Lance Yeomans’s woodblocks, textured and colourful compositions of vessels long since decayed which evoke the nostalgia of boats in dry dock waiting for spring. Awaiting the viewer in the gallery’s much sought-after installation space in the attic is Keiko Iwamoto’s ‘Right Shapes’. Precise, sensitive, and tactile, these intriguing forms express an affinity with the English tradition of Hepworth and Moore and capture spectacularly the fluidity of water in the mixing of the material. More figurative work is on display from accomplished husband and wife pairing Zgy and Sue Kruk in the form of salt-glazed ceramics and woodblock prints, with proceeds from the sale of Sue’s work going to The Cystic Fibrosis Trust. Both artists use their respective skills to capture the essence of our fascination with animals as companions. The innate link with nature is repeated in Geraldine Lambert’s vigorous drawings of entwined figures, spiritually inspired and replete with rich sensuality.
Open Thursdays and Fridays 10am-4pm and Saturday 10am-2pm, with live music from 1pm-2pm on Saturdays, until 20th December. Admission is free.
A Q&A session is also being held in the gallery with the exhibiting artists on 2nd December at 7.30pm. Admission £6 or £1 for art students. Tickets can be purchased online at https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/date/211857
