House Gallery press release

1st – 9th April 2014

HOUSE Gallery Collaboration:

Bailey/Carreira With Patrick Simkins

Artist Patrick Simkins and Collective Bailey/Carreira have joined forces to present work specific to Camberwell, exploring lost history and forgotten meaning.

In folklore, the well acts as a natural gathering place. But as time passes and society naturally progresses, what becomes of such traditions?

Hidden in the back room of the gallery, the well continues to provide an ongoing legacy. Yet the objects and souls that remain from times past, feel dazed and confused.

Notes From Another World

In the end there was the sea chest

An expedition with nine members from Germany and Austria, leave in 1939 for Scandinavia to verify results of an earlier team. A fall into a grotto in the North of Norway and the adverse conditions in this until then solitary environment lay the foundation stone. For studies and diary entries that show the struggle as well as the joy of discovering this habitat and its flora and fauna in these sixteen months.

It is a fictional story Angela uses as a setting for her work, presenting the objects, drawings, diary entries and fragments of old films, that were ‘discovered’ in a sea chest on an attic in 2013. Plants and animals that only exist in her world…..

1st March – 14th March

Private View 1st March 7-10pm

The exhibition will concentrate on recent work but will include some paintings from the last 30 years. All the pieces are oils, mostly on canvas with some on board. The paintings are mostly abstract with some landscapes, and vary in size from 15 centimetres (6 inches) to over a metre. Most of the work will be for sale for prices between £40 and £300.
My work is firmly in the tradition of “Lyrical Abstraction”: colourful, decorative and optimistic. There is an emphasis on pattern and movement. The most obvious comparisons might be with the St Ives painters of the last century, like Terry Frost or Patrick Heron. Among living painters the ones I feel closest to would include Gillian Ayres, Jennifer Durrant and the group associated with The Poussin Gallery.
The titles of my pictures are often poetic and mysterious but they are not meant to be clues to be deciphered. I want to suggest a mood without forcing the audience to agree with my interpretation. The names often refer to the original source of the image, helpful to me as I often work in series over a long period. Naming pictures is a bit like naming children, something memorable and attractive that they can make their own. As someone said “writing about pictures is like dancing about buildings”. Come and see for yourself.
