Imagining The Amazon

Current 21 January - 23 June 2017
Garden Room, The Collective, House of St Barnabas, 1 Greek Street, Soho Square, London W1D 4NQ

Viewings by appointment: info@alteriaart.com

Imagining the Amazon is an installation of new paintings and monotypes by Tamsin Relly, curated by Alteria Art at The Collective, House of St Barnabas, London.

The exhibition explores the relationships between wild and cultivated jungle environments; and the preservation of these ecosystems through conservation, remote constructed greenhouses and our imaginations. While celebrating the wonder and bio-diversity of life in the world’s rainforests, Relly’s work considers the fragility and decline of these habitats through deforestation and climate change.

Set against the backdrop of the rainforest-inspired wallpaper in the Garden Room, the exhibition reflects on how notions of exotic environments are woven into the every-day through art, design and popular culture. ‘I’ve always taken comfort in the idea of wilderness, but as more of our natural spaces are cultivated, developed or polluted, perhaps any truly untouched nature is at risk of living only through our imaginations.’

We are pleased to donate 7% of the sales towards World Land Trust for the purchase and protection of tropical forests.

A Sense of Place

Past 01 September 2016 - 03 March 2017
Simmons & Simmons, CityPoint, One Ropemaker Street, London EC2Y 9SS
Drinks Reception: Wednesday 01 March 2017
6 – 8pm (RSVP)
A Sense of Place is a group exhibition curated by Stuart Evans, featuring work from his private collection and the Simmons & Simmons Collection. The show includes work by Nobuyoshi Araki, Anna Barriball, Richard Billingham, Sebastiaan Bremer, Nan Goldin, Paul Graham, Howard Hodgkin, Paul Housely, Mustafa Hulusi, Christina Mackie, Jorge Queiroz, Tamsin Relly and Mark Wallinger.

In the 1930s Gertrude Stein famously said of Oakland, California, ‘there is no there there’. What did she mean by that? The term ‘sense of place’ is often used to describe characteristics that make a place special or unique, that foster a sense of authentic human attachment and belonging. The place is not just a backdrop but, as Philip Hensher writes, ‘it is part of the humanity at the centre of the endeavour’. The artists in the exhibition explore or record three-dimensional spaces that are imbued with this special sense of place.

Uncommon Ground

Past 14 February - 2 March 2017
The Royal Geographical Society, London

Uncommon Ground: New Art from the Landscape brings together the work of 11 contemporary Artists at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) in Kensington, London, to bear witness to the reciprocal, critical and often unclarifiable relationship between the artist and the landscape.
Either through a direct engagement with, or a quiet reflection on, the environment around them, all of the exhibitors seek to indicate their presence in the landscape. Using a range of material processes and different methods of observation, the resulting works examine the artists’ complicated relationships with the landscape.

The Terrarium Drawn

Past 15 September – 7 October 2016
jaggedart, London

Works on paper by Lucy Bainbridge, Hen Coleman, Katherine Jones, Tamsin Relly and Michael Taylor

Private View: Wednesday 14 September, 6.30 – 8.30 pm

Opening Times:
Wed-Fri; 11-6pm Saturdays 11-2pm. Other times by appointment
www.jaggedart.com

Exhibition curated by Katherine Jones

The Terrarium Drawn explores the evolution of environments, both natural and fabricated, global and domestic. All five artists use drawing as a fundamental part of their practice in order to grasp an idea and to explore its development.

Lucy Bainbridge depicts manmade environments in constant flux, while Tamsin Relly draws from her first-hand experience of ‘wilderness, erased or constructed for industry or leisure’ during recent research trips to the Arctic Circle and Las Vegas. Michael Taylor uses ‘a process of layered construction’ to attempt an understanding of how an image derives its meaning. Hen Coleman examines contrasts in ‘the terrain of chaotic and abundant nature’ as the basis for exploration.

The artists have been drawn together for this exhibition by Katherine Jones, an artist whose own work shares common themes with each. Her recent images reflect the gradual integration of unfamiliar plants, adapting to environmental and atmospheric changes, renewing the balance and diversity of domestic flora and fauna.

Arcadia

Past 10th - 28th May 2016
Smith Studio, 56 Church Street, Cape Town

Private View 10th May 3-5pm

Recently there seems to be a resurgence of landscape painting on the contemporary South African art scene. Arcadia looks at this through the eyes of six contemporary painters and printmakers, each with their own interpretation of the landscape they find themselves in.

Banele Khoza and Rosie Mudge have approached this with a contemporary digital gaze in painting and printmaking. While Tamsin Relly and Ruby Swinney transport us with their ethereal brushstrokes from the Arctic Circle to the company gardens in Cape Town. Talya Lubinsky offers a conceptual sculptural edge with her masterful engagement with maps and Richard Witikani an older more established artist from Zimbabwe shares his love of rural life with his timeless landscapes of home.

Artists include Richard Witikani, Rosie Mudge, Tamsin Relly, Banele Khoza, Ruby Swinney and Talya Lubinsky

Landscape has been a subject of fascination for artists for several centuries and this exhibition offers a series of fresh perspectives on how artists today are looking at the world around us. What unfolds is a conversation about how contemporary landscapes might be defined through works of art in painting, drawing, photography, print and sculpture.’

‘Vista offers the unique opportunity to engage with a variety of approaches to and views of landscape through the works of Tamsin Relly, Nick Bright, Marcus Jefferies, Bronwen Simone and Fontana Sleigh Reis.’
