PEEK 11  / NEWPORT WORKS

London based design studio, Newport Works presents Peek 11 as part of their interview series visiting the studios of creatives.

'Our mission is to reinvent the essential studio tools used in contemporary creative practice. We began with the portfolio. '

Song from Newport Works caught up with Becky, photographing her home studio, discussing walking as an act of pilgrimage and chatted about her ideal day.

'Her large scale drawings, which take weeks to make, are characterised by their meditative spirit, textile-like appearance and calming aura. Each piece is a contemplative, profound statement on the passage of time and the power of focus.' 

See more at Newport Works and take a look at their beautiful portfolios.

DRAW 2018 TRIFORIUM EXHIBITION 2018


DRAW was founded in 2008 at the RCA to celebrate crossovers between disciplines, promote drawing as a specialism and share it as an expanding practice. At a time when everyone does everything in art, drawing has not gone away. It crosses the space between the arts, following its own track – contemporary and timeless. Drawing is instinct not reason, but it helps you work things out. In our digital age people are attracted to it, but are nervous because it’s so difficult to do well. We will keep drawing.

– Anne Howeson


What is DRAWing? asks artists to explore contemporary drawing through their own practice.

To celebrate the ten year anniversary of DRAW as a collective, RCA are holding an exhibition of works by RCA Alumni at the Triforium Gallery above Temple Church, London.

Temple Church, London
4th – 25th July 2018

THE HUMBLE BLACK LINE

THE HUMBLE BLACK LINE at Frameless Gallery
Group Exhibition

'Over the last 11 years of organising exhibitions, a lot of the young and established artists we have showcased and worked with have claimed as inspiration the line, techniques, style and draughtsmanship of older 20th century masters, from Malevich to Picasso and Lowry to Mondrian. 

In an in-house curated exhibition we present for the first time represented and guest contemporary artists in conversation with some of the masters who’s “line” inspires or has inspired their work. Rarely seen pieces from the private collection of the gallery owners will hang alongside contemporary works, some especially created for this exhibition.'

Artists: Alexey Sukhoveev, Cale De Iser, Carla Chaim, Robert Kelly , Paul Deller, Jonathan Meyer, Pablo Picasso, Henri Gaudier-Brzeska , Louise Fishman, Giorgio Morandi, Piet Mondrian, Rodrigo Sassi, Tom Leamon, Becky Allen, Gabriel Orozco, L.S. Lowry.
