We are very excited to welcome to the gallery the greatly talented and current, Lucie Bennett. This will be the first time Bennett has exhibited on the island and we are delighted to show her work to clients, collectors and supporters in Jersey.

Bennett will be showing some of her sought-after limited-edition silkscreen prints, along with original paintings, some of which are being created for this exhibition. It is a great chance to see the work by one of the UK’s most exciting artists.

Bennett has exhibited widely and internationally since 2001. She gained a BA from Manchester Metropolitan University in Interactive Arts, graduating in 1997. She also studied at École Regionale des Beaux-Arts de Nantes in France and at Wimbledon School of art.

Bennett has worked across a broad range of mediums including neon, collage latex and laser-cut acrylic. Bennett released her first original screen prints in 2005, and has subsequently built a substantial body of work in the form of limited-edition silkscreen prints, many of which have been made at Coriander Studios. The works are both nationally and internationally recognisable.

Captivating from the onset, colour plays a major part in Bennett’s work. By applying a carefully selected palette she creates an identity for each of her subjects, with bright, hot pinks, oranges and blues suggesting a sense of the playful, while muted tones are paired with more sophisticated and mature poses. Throughout history, the female form has been both celebrated and objectified in art, advertising and the media. Bennett plays with our perception of this by presenting her subjects in the simplest form, encouraging the viewer to identify with the work as they see fit. 

In some of her works Bennett references the traditional view of the female being close to nature by incorporating plant-like imagery, yet with a contemporary take – using striking colour combinations and graphic shapes.  Bennett also uses industrial materials for her paintings – aluminium and gloss paint – this creates something fluid and sensual, exploring the juxtaposition of metal and paint, and the languid forms of the female body.

 

Bennett has exhibited in London, New York, San Francisco, Miami, and Hong Kong and has work in a number of permanent art collections including the Groucho Club, The Allbright and Virgin Group. Her work has been featured in a number of BBC television programmes, including Sir Alan Sugar’s The Apprentice and the piece of feature cinema French Film by Jackie Oudney feature film.

 

Bennett both lives and works in London.

 

Exhibition open Friday 25th March – Thursday 14th April.

Remnants of Life by Glen Perotte

Remnants of Life _1.jpg

September 29th - October 22nd


 In his latest body of work, Glen invites us to stop and breathe for a moment and notice nature in our urban environment and to consider our intrinsic connection to it. In these compositions, Glen takes the modest, unassuming plants that colour his path to the studio and exalts them. Removed from their world where they compete with the materials of industrial man, he transfers them to another; a world of vivid colours with a dreamlike quality. They are shot in an ethereal light, bringing out the beauty that exists in each petal, each flower. Even those that are captured as they decay project their splendour.

Glen has arranged his subjects in water which he reveals symbolises life. Combining this with extraordinary lighting and photographic techniques, he creates images that appear almost enchanted, otherworldly and dares us to see these plants with new eyes and to understand the fragility not just of their existence, but of our own.

We are also delighted to welcome Mike Nelhams who will talk about subtropical planting of the Scilly Isles and how Jersey echoes this with its temperate climate and fertile soil.
 
 Mike is garden curator at Tresco Abbey Garden and will be joining us at the gallery hosting a discussion about plants and the importance of their place in the world and in our gardens.
 Tresco Abbey Garden  is home to 20,000 plants from across the world’s Mediterranean climate zones, from Brazil to New Zealand and Burma to South Africa.  
We are also delighted that Mike has accepted our invitation to act as our planting advisor for the Millbrook House Art Hotel project.

Glen Perotte launches his stunning new body of work Remnants of Life in which he invites us to stop and breathe for a moment and notice nature in our urban environment and to consider our intrinsic connection to it.
Private View: 30th September, 17.00 - 20.00
Bruce McLean
September 6th - September 29th
McLean's fascination with flora and fauna is inspired by 
his wife's gardens in London and Menorca and has been a central theme in
his late prints and paintings.

We continue our theme of plant life and 'the garden' with this collection of colourful, expressive work from one British Art's leading contemporary figures. The 20 pieces on display here represent some of the very best monotypes and silkscreens including McLean's latest prints Red Hot Autumn and Cool White Spring (below), creating an atmosphere ranging from bold and bright to serene and contemplative. 
Modern British
September 6th - September 29th
From the archives we are showing a selection of works by some of the most prolific Bristish artists of the 20th Century. Included in this collection are pieces by Dame Elizabeth Frink, John Piper, Henry Moore and John Minton.
