New Ashgate Gallery Autumn Programme, brochure 2013

  1. 1. Autumn 2013 Peter Jackman
  2. 2. John Maltby is recognised as one of the country’s finest ceramic artists, his figures and creatures holding a wit and profundity that reflect the human condition and are inextricably linked to the English landscape and experience. ‘My work continues to draw its inspiration from the ‘Englishness’ of my experience. Although many of the subjects re-appear, I place them both in a traditional continuum, yet relevant to my contemporary condition.’ Peter Jackman’s works interpret landscapes and objects within the landscape in a semi-abstract form. His images portray a personal reaction to a place, in addition to elements of the actual scene. Peter’s work is created by layers of drawing and with graphite, pastels and chalk. These layers are cut through by scratching, scraping and overdrawing to create a complex surface.

  3. 3. Alex Dewart questions the role of representation in painting, taking inspiration from Christian icon painting, replacing religious figures with a broader set of contemporary ‘icons’ as well as more general historical figures. Her landscape work uses structures such as bridges which have more symbolic values attached to them. Ursula Leach makes paintings, prints and drawings in response to the chalk landscape of Cranborne Chase. The work is, to some extent, about current agricultural practices, but firstly is about the formal issues of image making. Colour is important as an expression of mood and atmosphere and as an indicator of new and different crops. As climate change takes effect there are dramatic and beautiful changes of colour in the fields. Dream Spaces: Alex Dewart and Ursula Leach Drinks reception: Fri 30 Aug, 6-8pm 17 A u g - 2 8 S e p (closed on 14 and 20 Sep) Alex Dewart Ursula Leach
  4. 4. JaneMuir Maker in Focus: Jane Muir 5 Oct – 16 Nov Jane Muir specialises in idiosyncratic hand painted figures representing a witty and uncluttered observation of the world. Figures that stand alone or placed in an architectural landscape are hand modelled, allowing her the freedom to sketch with clay and develop ideas during the making process. Jane’s figures are not about specific individuals but are a personification of the stereotype or archetypal character. Her work has been exhibited widely throughout the UK, Europe, America and Japan. 17 Aug - 28 Sep Clare Willard’s work has evolved through an eclectic background covering anthropology, textiles, public art and print. The binding force is an indomitable passion for colour and pattern. She makes hand constructed, one off and limited edition pieces, assembled with a palette of coloured laminate and wood. Work is tailored to the small and intimate, or scaled up to produce striking architectural installations. A constantly evolving visual language transforms the materials into an unusual and eloquent vehicle for colour and line. Maker in Focus: Clare Willard Clare Willard
