Ralph Anderson, One Thousand Years, Exhibition at TM Lighting Gallery

On 05, Oct 2018 | In News | By TM Lighting

TM Lighting Gallery is delighted to present an exhibition by British contemporary artist Ralph Anderson from 18th October – 21st December 2018. The exhibition will showcase Anderson’s bold abstract paintings including a large-scale, three panel triptych The Dog of Flanders, based on the Rubens altarpiece Descent from the Cross, in addition to a new multi-panel work Epicurus’ Interplanetary Conservatory which brings a more recognisably representational aspect to Anderson’s exploration of colour and gestural mark making. Additionally, examples of Anderson’s drawings and works on paper will compliment the larger aluminium and plywood pieces.

The exhibition One Thousand Years includes work from Anderson’s Lucent Umbra series, meaning ‘glowing’ or ‘shining’ shadow, referring to the technique he employs to give each work the illusion of a backlit glow and coloured shadow. This enhancement of the pared back and cut out paintings, that hang as floating reliefs, bring the surrounding walls of the gallery into play with the artwork, acting as temporal backgrounds for each image and erasing the definitive, framed edge of the painting. The resulting works hover between illusion and physical reality, investigating gesture and form whilst also playing with the notions of representation and non-representation in art.

TM Lighting, art lighting specialists, will collaborate with Anderson to illuminate the paintings showcasing their recently launched G150 high colour rendition LED spotlights to further enhance the luminosity of the neon reflective paint, investigating light, colour and shadow to reveal the three-dimensional qualities of the works within the gallery.

Private View: 6.30pm – 8.30pm 17th October 2018.

The exhibition will be lit by TM Lighting.

October 2018 – Made In Arts London 2018 Collection Exhibition at TM Lighting Gallery

TM Lighting has collaborated with University of the Arts London’s Made in Arts London to present the ‘MiAL 2018 Collection’, showcasing art and design from UAL students. During the exhibition TM Lighting will provide an artist Q&A to find out a bit more about the artist and their work at this stage in their career.

Artist Interview: Molly Brocklehurst

  • UAL College: Wimbledon College of Art
  • Course: MFA
  • Graduation Year: 2019

 

Q. Please tell us a bit about your artwork/design in the exhibition, what was the inspiration behind your work? 

A. ‘Intrusion’ is inspired from a photo collage that I made from a collection of photographs found in a flea market in London. It is about nostalgia wearing a distinctly utopian face. Using paint to create figurative reconstructions of imagery, I am covering themes that relate to our distorted memories of a nostalgic past.

 

Q. How did you develop your process?

A. My practice emerges from the fascination of found photography. I have a huge on going collection of photographs that I find in flea markets and antique shops across England. I am drawn to the ambiguity of the people in the photos, each begging a fiction, which will become a painting.

My work addresses ideas of time and the diminishing realties of existence. Each of my paintings reincarnate past experience, memories that have been lost and forgotten. By reconstructing images through painting, I want the familiar to seem unfamiliar. I want to attempt to trigger a feeling of memory within the viewer by using old evocative imagery to cross the boundary between nostalgia and the anticipation of the unknown. The paintings become strange fictions that blur the boundary between document and storytelling.

 

Q. Which artists do you admire and why?

A. I am a huge fan of Peter Doig’s work. It is completely absorbing and dream-like. I have also recently become really interested in the work of Adam Dix who was also a student at Wimbledon College of Art and Justin Mortimer.

 

Q. What are you currently working on, or what is next?

I am currently working on some site-specific work for an exhibition coming up in November at the Crypt, St Pancras. The exhibition is called ‘Who Will Provide’. Due to the nature of the space, I am trying something completely different on wood with resin and paint. It’s putting me completely out of my comfort zone, which is exciting!

 

Q. How does it feel to be selected for MiAL Collection 2018, what’s been the highlight?

A. I am very happy to be selected for MIAL Collection 2018. It was a highlight to be a part of their exhibition at the TM Lighting Gallery and I’m excited to see what other opportunities lay ahead.

Please list any awards that you have either won or have been/are currently shortlisted for.

Aon Community Art Awards 2016, Dentons Art Prize 2018 (shortlisted), East Street Arts 2016, Vice Chancellor’s Post Graduate Scholarship 2017

October 2018 – Made In Arts London 2018 Collection Exhibition at TM Lighting Gallery

TM Lighting has collaborated with University of the Arts London’s Made in Arts London to present the ‘MiAL 2018 Collection’, showcasing art and design from UAL students. During the exhibition TM Lighting will provide an artist Q&A to find out a bit more about the artist and their work at this stage in their career.

 

Artist Interview: Ágnes Virág Móricz

  • UAL College: London College of Fashion
  • Course: BA Cordwainers Fashion Bags and Accessories: Product Design and Innovation
  • Graduation Year: 2021

 

Q. Please tell us bit about your artwork/design in the exhibition, what was the inspiration behind your work? 

 

The painting that I currently have in your gallery is called “Company” however, the girl on the painting is alone. Whenever I paint I tend to use fast strokes, expressive motions and sort of channel my inner emotions through the media I am using. Some people say that they can see a cat right under her arm however I did not intend to paint this but regardless I let them see what they want to see as I want people to experience whatever emotion comes to them naturally instead of forcing them to feel something. My inspiration usually comes from my day to day life, but I like to think that only the viewer’s perspective can make this piece unique. I would recommend anyone to accompany my piece with a nice glass of wine, some time to spare and open thoughts.

Q. How did you develop your process?

 

I have been a self-taught artist since a young age. I know it is cliché however in my country arts education has always been a sort of luxury since we are only given a tiny amount of time to create as their focus in art education is history. However, I tried to get as much as I could by signing up to extra classes and life drawing sessions. I always enjoyed competitions, so I had to learn how to get better at classical art and anatomy etc. My current style only started to develop two years ago, and it is still in an early development phase. I used painting as a form of meditation where I am alone with the paper/canvas and I can express how I feel without saying a word. I like to make things with my hands especially when I am alone. I find my process intimate and personal. For me art, is not how expensive the canvas or the paint is. It’s about what I want to say with it.

Q. Which artists do you admire and why?

 

I admire Egon Schiele as an artist however I don’t admire his private life. His artistic talent is unmatched. I find his style amazing and way ahead of his time. It has all the emotions, the colours and themes that I find so inspiring. He will always be someone to visit in a gallery or museum since it evokes emotions and thoughts a person can only try to understand.

 

Q. What are you currently working on, or what is next?

 

I am currently working on a new painting; however, illustration is easier for me since it doesn’t need as much resources. I will be exhibited in Glasgow (and hopefully other locations) as a part of Cass Art Drawfashion competition’s finalist. I am still looking for collaborations projects and places to exhibit my other paintings however as a new artist I am struggling with that at the moment. I will try to set up my own business in the beginning of next year since as a Bags and Accessories student this would be my actual field of study.

 

How does it feel to be selected for MiAL Collection 2018, what’s been the highlight?

It is really flattering to be chosen since this is my first exhibition! I would like to participate as much as I can since I find it amazing that they create a platform for the students. The collaboration with TM Lighting is a fantastic opportunity not just for a starting out student but for any artist. I loved the private view opening and I am looking forward to the personal development days this weekend!

September 2018 – Made In Arts London 2018 Collection Exhibition at TM Lighting Gallery

TM Lighting has collaborated with University of the Arts London’s Made in Arts London to present the ‘MiAL 2018 Collection’, showcasing art and design from UAL students. During the exhibition TM Lighting will provide an artist Q&A to find out a bit more about the artist and their work at this stage in their career.

 

Artist Interview: Sebastian Chaumeton

  • UAL College: Chelsea
  • Course: BA Fine Art
  • Graduation Year: 2019

Please give an explanation of the ideas/themes behind the works that you are showcasing with MiAL, and at TM Lighting Gallery.

I treat my paintings like sketches for my sculptures. I like to think of it as mentally throwing up on the canvas so that I can pick out the juicy bits and work out what’s really on my mind. Recently I’ve been more interested in relinquishing responsibility for the characters I create within my artwork, allowing the public/ viewers to suggest what I paint. Through large-scale murals and paintings I isolate interesting aesthetical/ political/ social elements to digest further in other mediums. To me this is the art that excites me. To give life to ideas based within these conglomerates of characters and evolve them from these shared spaces. Because of this collaborative process, themes vary from pop culture and politics to the mundane and magical.

What were your inspirations behind the pieces that are being shown with MiAL?

These particular pieces have the same concept as mentioned before however the imagery comes from a more personal space. Conscience and Subconscious thoughts and feelings co exist on the same canvas. I enjoy referencing not only pop culture but also art historical works. I like to flip the concepts of a well-known artists work against their aesthetical value for a humorous re imagining of the paintings. The artwork within the exhibition (Mellow Mouse & Friends) was an exploration of line and character. I wanted to distort the well know Disney characters Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Pluto through my lens into a flat two dimensional image. The lines blur together just as the ideas around copyright do within this heavily saturated image based world.

 

Who are specific artists or practitioners who you feel have had some influence on your work?

Keith Haring is a huge influence not only in his aesthetic but his philosophies around art. Not only on an aesthetical level but also in a philosophical sense of what art can be. Art that your 3 year old niece, grandpa and everyone in between can enjoy.

Paula Rego’s fairytale like pastel pictures have also inspired me in their stark contrast of childish imagery and dark subject matter. David Hockney, Kaws, Philip Guston, Jordon Wolfson and Laura Ford are just a few who also inspire me.

 

What do you hope your audience will take away from your work?

A smile

 

What inspires you particularly about the medium you currently work in?

From my paintings I primarily sculpt characters of interest in ceramics. I love working in clay not only for its freeing, hands-on messy aspects but also for its rewarding finish. Ceramic sculptures don’t just produce value from their desirable finish but also in their ability to solidify the value of time and effort. When fired the once playfully soft, manipulative clay becomes still, containing ones ideas and energy in a single moment.

 

How did you develop your process?

“Doodling” has always been a habit for me and it’s taken me a while to fully accept and appreciate it in its own right as art. I see the paintings as me mentally throwing up on the canvas to pick at the juicy bits. The large scale public murals are what’s most recent with this style. I’ve had a lot of fun relinquishing the responsibility of the context in my work and allowing the public to influence the imagery within a performative setting.

 

How does it feel to be selected for MiAL Collection 2018 exhibition at the TM Lighting Gallery, what’s been the highlight?

It feels amazing! I’m so grateful for the mural opportunities they have given me! You’ll be seeing a lot more around London in the not too distant future.

 

What are you currently working on, or what is next?

What’s next is realising some characters within these shared spaces in three dimensional mediums. Primarily I’ll be working in ceramics with a twist…
