New paintings and prints

23 May – 25 June 2016,

OPEN Thursday & Friday 10 – 5, Saturday 11 – 3, & by appointment.

Tom Hammick’s new atmospheric landscape prints emerge from cut wood. His images are metaphors for the human condition; reflecting states of mind, transience, fragility and awe. He is inspired by the British Romantic tradition and Eastern culture.

s TH113 Tom Hammick Violetta & Alfredo's Retreat

“This image It is in part influenced by a 1950’s Japanese film and in part a picture about love so strong you ignore everything else. There is nothing in the world apart from those two figures. They are in a vortex of passion and love like Tristan und Isolde have for each other. Their passion  detaches them from reality. Hence they are in their boat far off from anything else.”

Hammick has an international reputation for his stunning colourful printmaking.

The Summer Exhibition at Rabley Drawing Centre brings together 15 artists from the Drawing and Print School. Each has made work that is highly individual within the creative and supportive Studio & Print Sessions at Rabley.

The regular Studio & Print sessions offer weekly ongoing creative development and support throughout the year. Experimental and conventional drawing underpins the variety of print disciplines. The school’s focus on developing work through new technologies including acid free and non – toxic printmaking has brought a vitality to the studio as each artist researches and develops the potential of their ideas through various media.

A stimulating dialogue with visiting artist tutors Meryl Ainslie, Sara Lee, Endellion Lycett Green, Nik Pollard, and Emma Stibbon RA, along with the support of Rabley Studio Printmaker Amy-Jane Blackhall, has enabled the development of exciting new work over the last year.

Royal Academy Exhibition

Hide and Seek

Drawings by Eileen Cooper RA

29 May — 23 August 2015

Eileen Cooper RA 'Hide and Seek' Royal Academy ADThis summer the RA celebrates the art of Eileen Cooper RA with an exhibition of drawings spanning almost 40 years of her career.

This exhibition, which coincides with the publication of a monograph celebrating Cooper’s career, presents drawings spanning almost 40 years. Cooper creates work that possesses a strongly poetic and distinctive vision, and the artist has been described as a ‘magical realist’. An accomplished painter and printmaker, Cooper’s practice has always been underpinned by drawing. This remarkable body of work illustrates how her distinctive imagery has developed through making drawings that explore such subjects as sexuality, birth, family, fecundity and creativity. We are delighted to display, as part of the exhibition, the artist’s gift to the Royal Academy Collections of ten previously unseen mixed-media drawings. These feature Cooper’s iconic female figures, and are multi-layered and complex in form.
