Exhibition: Responses & Reflections – the Art and Craft of Carol Wagstaff

The exhibition Responses & Reflections – the Art and Craft of Carol Wagstaff, one of Artrooms Fair London 2019’s applicants, will run until the 24th March 2018 at the Horsham Museum and Art Gallery.

Meet the artist Carol Wagstaff on Saturday the 24th March from 11am to 3pm at the Horsham Museum, where she will be talking to the public about her exhibition.

“The great thing about artists is that they can see the world totally differently from how you perceive it. If they match that vision with technical ability, amazingly different art work can be created. That is the experience that the public will get when visiting Responses and Reflections: The sculpture and art of Carol Wagstaff at Horsham District Council’s Horsham Museum and Art Gallery. Using sculpture, print, photography and painting, Carol explores and then translates the atmospheres, interior or historical significance of spaces to create a response to, and a reflection of, her experience thereby producing a distinctive and unique art work.
London born Carol, who has a degree in Fine art, now lives in West Sussex. Her work features in exhibitions and galleries across Europe, as well as in the corporate world. The inspirational, personal and elusive nature of Carol’s work means that it can sit just as well in a gallery as it can in the home. Whilst some of Carol’s work is abstract others, such as her portraits, are figurative reflecting honesty in the representation. These portraits may, on the surface, be seen as easier to connect with yet they actually draw the viewer in. This causes the visitor to reflect longer as the art raise questions about and within the individual.
For some though it is the very tactile and almost sensuous nature of Carols sculptures, both those created for the small scale setting such as the home, and outdoor installations such as those produced for the National Trust at Standen, that capture the imagination. What visitors undeniably admire most about Carol’s work is the creativity and adaptability of an artist at the “top of her game” in all areas of her work, as the exhibition Responses and Reflections reveals.”

Horsham Museum and Art Gallery and the Visitor Information Centre are open Monday to Saturday (excluding bank holidays) from 10.00am to 5.00pm. Admission is free.

Le Dame Art Gallery: solo exhibition by Steven Vaughn

Le Dame Art Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibition by ritualistic water painter Stevens Vaughn. The exhibition is running from the 16th March to the 30th April. Private View will be on Thursday the 15th March from 6:30-9pm. Don’t miss the chance to meet the artist! RSVP to c.benito@ledameartgallery.com.

Stevens Vaughn was born in Minnesota, United States, to Vince Vaughn and Joyce Andresen; farmers and cattle ranchers. Due to a rare form of autism resulting in a lack of the concept of time and direction, his early life was based on seasons and events. He is currently based in China. His exhibitions are influenced by his study and training in the philosophy of how important imperfection is to the state of perfection in Japan and China. His methods of painting have been reported to use ritual “dripping” techniques that don’t pull out the color randomly, rather distribute pigments dropwise. The technique uses instability of the fluid to create figures and the splash of the droplets to further enhance the painting.Stevens Vaughn co-founded in 2000 Hafnia Foundation. The Foundation develop and support projects that inspire people, regardless of geographical boundaries, religions, sexuality or any other differences. Each project as well as their creators, seek to discover something meaningful while being playful during the process.

BEL-AIR FINE ART launches new gallery in London

In January 2018, BEL-AIR FINE ART proudly opened the doors of its first UK space in London Mayfair, making BAFA LONDON the 14th Gallery to join the group. Appreciated by collectors and respected in the industry, BEL-AIR FINE ART keeps expanding and lands in the UK to present in its 200sqm London space an eclectic selection of its finest artists.

Founded in 2004 by François Chabanian, BEL-AIR FINE ART group has been focusing and sharing its expertise on contemporary art for more than ten years. Exhibiting international artists in Switzerland, France and Italy, the group is also taking part in fairs and organising international exhibitions in the Middle East, including Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Beirut.

The group prides on finding the best up and coming artists and lands an expert eye on Neo-Pop, postPop Art, Street Art as well as Optical Art. Far from overlooking other artistic movements, BEL-AIR FINE is equally able to advise on traditional artistic styles and promotes with the same energy emerging artists and great names of the XXI century.

BEL-AIR FINE ART LONDON is proud to present, from the 15th March to the 16th April 2018, two remarkably curated shows by Carole Feuerman and Sandra Shashou.

Strength, Survival & Balance will present an extensive selection of monumental sculptures by Carole Feuerman. The artist is recognised as a pioneering figure in the world of hyperrealist sculpture, which emerged around 1970 in relation to photorealist painting. She was one of the three leaders in making life like sculptures that portray their models precisely. Feuerman’s has always captured in her sculptures the notion of natural beauty and a sense of inner peace.

Broken Reborn, by London-based artist Sandra Shashou, will exhibit a new body of work gravitating around the concepts of destruction and regeneration. Her work is complex and intricate, exuberant and elegant. Shashou’s new body of work comprises arrangements of smashed fragments of vintage fine bone china tea sets, Russian Lomonosov porcelain, Spanish Lladro and Nao ballerina figurines or German bisque Kaiser nude, dating back to the 1940s, 50s and 60s. Broken Reborn references to bravery, courage and rebuilding after devastation.

It is with great pride and joy that BEL-AIR FINE ART opened its new space on New Bond Street, London, and looks forward to see what the future holds.
