In the words of Hands Up: ‘We believe in giving Syrians a Hand Up, not a hand out, and in empowering communities. Working with local Syrian experts, we provide health and education services to some of the most vulnerable Syrian communities, whose lives have been devastated by conflict.’

Instructions for Waiting

Past 13th April 2021
Liminal Projects - Online

Liminal Gallery is delighted to present their debut exhibition ‘Instructions For Waiting’ curated by Louise Fitzjohn.

2020 was the year we all waited. In a rare moment, the world stood still and life as we knew it was paused. As we continue to wait, Liminal Gallery asked artists to provide their Instructions For Waiting, instructions scribbled on a Post-It Note which viewers are encouraged to practice at their own leisure. These Instructions may be positive affirmations, a call to action, an activity; the exhibition aims to ease your pain in waiting and, at the very least, to pass some time before the wait finally comes to an end.

The exhibition forms part of a wider exhibition ‘The Waiting Place’ inspired by a Dr Seuss poem from one of his last books ‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go’ and curated by Ann-Marie James and Emily Godden, commissioned by The Art Station and supported by Arts Council England. The exhibition invites creatives from all fields to submit a postcard which responds to this very poignant poem. The exhibition will take place physically at The Art Station in Saxmundham, Suffolk as well as a digital platform during April 2021. More details will be announced shortly but join us digitally in the lead up to the exhibition across the following digital platforms:

“This series of monotypes, ‘I Am Stardust, I Am Plant’, reflects on the interdependence between all life forms, and the reciprocal relationship we have with our environment and planet. The varying shapes of the prints trace the outlines of windows and mirrors found in my home and studio.” – Tamsin Relly

“Our prisons are full of women who should not be incarcerated but who are in need of help and support through other means. Women in vulnerable positions are less likely to come forward and ask for help for fear of the implications and increased exposure. By addressing women’s needs, some women can avoid getting caught up in the criminal justice system and have their problems addressed in a more appropriate setting. Women with addiction issues are more likely to have hepatitis C. The prevalence of hepatitis C among women in prison is higher than in the male prison cohort. Getting tested and treated is a crucial step in rehabilitating women’s health and lives.” – Art on a Postcard

Past From 22 May 2020
Oliver Projects, East Dulwich, London

Drawing Closer, is a group exhibition of new and recent works on paper by South London-based artists Joseph Goody, Rebecca Harper and Tamsin Relly, curated by Oliver Projects.

Displayed in a London family home, the selection of work explores interior and exterior spaces, memories and drawn boundaries – both visible and invisible. Each artist investigates these ideas in distinctive ways. Whilst Relly’s work explore society’s relationship with natural and urban environments, Goody’s practice examines relationships between abstract forms. Harper’s paintings for this project, inspired by old family photographs, navigate similar themes of distance and interaction, albeit from a personal perspective.

All works are available for sale and we hope to offer viewings by appointment from June 1st. Please click here to enquire.

Past 18- 22 February 2019
Experimental Gallery, Cornell University, New York.


In early February of 1969 Willoughby Sharp asked 9 artists to use the Andrew Dickson White Museum of Art (now Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art) as a point of departure for their new way of conceptualizing and making work; one often inextricably tied to the material of the soil itself. In doing so Earth Art became the first exhibition at an American museum to engage with artworks that asked viewers to look beyond traditional art objects and the institutional frame and look instead to the frame of experience.

Celebrating the 50 year anniversary of this visionary exhibition, Site Work brings together 13 contemporary artists that represent a continuation of that dialogue. Working across mediums the pieces use sound, labor, duration, and gesture to evoke particular moments, processes, and landscapes that challenge our conception of being present in space. Site Work illustrates the persistence of questions about the discourse between art object, experience, and activism, especially as lenses for how we relate to, and occupy our environment in uncertain times.

POLAR 2018 – A SCAR & IASC Conference

Past 19th June 2018, 14.00 - 15.30pm
Davos, Switzerland


In 2014 a group of visual artists sailed in a tall ship up the west coast of Svalbard. They all witnessed the same landscape, yet, as they filtered the experience through their individual thematic and aesthetic concerns, a series of translations occurred, across a range of media including photography, video and drawing. In response, seven of the artists developed That Which Cannot Be Transmitted, a project which considers how the process of translation can shape contemporary discourse about the Arctic. Exploring overlapping themes of temporality and the Anthropocene, three of these artists will each present their work.
Tamsin Relly works with the fluid and unpredictable qualities of printmaking and photography to disrupt the translation of landscape into image, and offer impressions of environments in states of uncertainty or impermanence.
Paper, lines and cutting are central to Sandra Kuehne´s practice. Printed materials such as polar maps are frequently used as media. Kuehne employs the variations of the line, its formal lyricism, but also challenges the absolute assertion of any printed map by making references to topography that is in continual flux.
Daniel Kukla´s work is informed by the intersection of his art practice and formal training in the biological and anthropological sciences. He is interested in the shifting tensions towards the natural world as our society expands with an insatiable appetite for resources.

Drawing from both found media imagery and first-hand observations, Relly works with the fluid and unpredictable qualities of her materials and processes to present impressions of these natural and urban spaces in states of uncertainty or impermanence.  Research includes visiting and studying diverse locations such as Boreal Forests in Hämeenkyrö, Finland, The Eden Project in Cornwall, and the fabricated oasis of the Las Vegas Strip.

Imagining The Amazon

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

Viewings by appointment: [email protected]

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

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.

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
