Manifestations: solo exhibition by artist Sandy Kendall
A solo exhibition by Sandy Kendall featuring drawings and paintings inspired by classical art and a life-long interest in the human body.
‘Manifestations’ presents works on canvas, board and large-scale pieces on cloth, depicting a morphic mass of denuded bodies that strive to breach the frame.
As quoted from the artist:
“It began with a single sheet of raw canvas stapled to a wall three years ago, with the strong influence of classical painting in mind, and some self-imposed limitations in terms of colour and media, I expanded the concept to encompass the textures and patterns of simple curtaining fabrics (with a subconscious nod to tapestries of the same era).
Alongside these “hangings” I also began work on a series of largescale paintings in colour and mixed media, perhaps as an antidote to the restrained monochromatic hangings. The paintings all contain a narrative of sorts, some with roots in Greek mythology, and explore filling the surface with the human figure.
Completion of the collection (MAINFESTATIONS) came with a flourish of small Michelangelo inspired canvases, still crowded with figures but balanced with flat areas of simple colour.
Outside of the gallery you will notice some energetic figures on wood panels attempting to leave the scene of the crime, I do hope you won’t follow their example but linger a while and please do leave your comments in the visitor book as they are highly valued.”
