Sat 19 June – Sat 31 July
ladypat artist statement:
The Isle of Why is my opportunity to observe, explore and celebrate the diversity of high and low mainstream culture. I create digital images and transform into hand made felt pieces creating a new folk pop art form – Kompute & Kraft. The Isle of Why is a field of inspiration and exuberance where questions disappear and only possibilities remain! This is the first time this work has been exhibited on the Island.
All artwork acid-free card and acrylic fuzzy-felt. Frames for exhibition purposes only. Please reframe with UV protection and display away from direct sunlight.
The 12 original artworks in this exhibition are for sale via our Craft Shop. You can also buy ladypat fine art giclee prints via the button below
20/21 Vision (2021) £450 Possibilities abound!
Down To Earth (59.4 x 84.1cm, 2021) £600 A play on The Man Who Fell To Earth but I use it here to celebrate a calm attitude to these post-truth times. These are watchers unresponsive to ambiguous scenes that unfold in their orbit.
Glamour & Clamour (59.4 x 84.1cm, 2021) £600 I’m using dartboards that look like clamshells with the fixed binary ‘Parallel Lines’ of black and white. But amongst this deafening furore is the beauty suggested by Debbie Harry’s eyes! She sees beyond the templates.
Screamflowers (59.4 x 84.1cm, 2021) £720 (this artwork has been preframed with gallery quality UV protection) Van Gogh’s Sunflowers Vs Primal Scream Screamadelica. A simple art/music popart mash, reflecting my twin interests.
The Isle of Why (59.4 x 84.1cm, 2021) £600 David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust has become an artworld meme in recent times; a pan-generational icon. I take the essence of his persona -the different coloured eyes, and an extra Ziggy 4th eye! He has a loose array of distorted binary clamshells which is my motif for this exhibition. Shouldn’t be too difficult to spot that his ears are the west and east sides to the Isle of Wight itself!
The Meme Machine (59.4 x 84.1cm, 2020) £600 Hide the Pain Harold is an enduring meme of recent years but now inflected with inclusive rainbow features of acceptance (and perseverance)
Two’s a Crowd (2021) £450 Not Daft Punk: Image appropriated from cult film The Killings at Outpost Zeta via Boards of Canada. Perfect metaphor for these respiratory addled times.
Ground Control (2021) £450 The safe journey back to normality.
In Bloom (2020) £450 The disruptive outbursts of Spring
Marilyn Mercury (59.4 x 84.1cm, 2021) £600 Can’t have a Roaring ’20s without these two – the perfect distillation of beauty and power.
Sorry About That (2019) £600 The nonplussed YouTube face of geoblocked hell. Group shrug.
The Pleasing Sands (59.4 x 84.1cm, 2021) £600 Reclining Buddha on the beach (at Seaview).
