Giant felt spray cans, visually bold and graphic illustrations looking at sexuality and a site specific projection influenced by William Morris’ pattern work. ‘Influence’ is set to be one of the most anticipated art exhibitions of the summer.
London based artist Lucy Sparrow, Polish born artist Marcelina Amelia and British Artist Kate Lynch will transform the gallery and the intersection between art and craft is explored within ‘Influence’ and is epitomised with Lucy Sparrow’s work. Lucy sets the agenda for textiles within the urban art scene and her felt giant spray cans epitomise this and steal the show wherever they are exhibited!
Lucy’s work has been shown alongside Banksy in the ‘Urban Art Takeover’ and the Victoria and Albert museums touring art show ‘ Urban Art Show’
In stark contrast to the bright, bold, felt work our influence exhibition also features the delicate experimental print work and site-specific projection inspired by William Morris and created by Artist Kate Lynch. For those of you, like us, who long over William Morris’ pattern work then this is an exhibition not to be missed!
Our third and final artist is Marcelina Amelia, Polish born and London based. Her illustrations draw together the urban and funkiness of Lucy’s work with the delicate line work of Kate Lynch’s pattern work. Her work consists of glorious bold illustrations that look at sexuality and relationships in a style that is inspired by German Expressionists Ernest Ludwig Kirchner and Egon Schiele.
Marburae Gallery is choosing to showcase 3 outstanding artists for ‘Influence’, in a twist to their usual exhibitions of 12 artists. This is in order to allow each artist space to showcase large projects that draw the viewer closer to the artist and their way of working.
The big opening for the exhibition will take place at Marburae Art Gallery at 7.30pm – 9.00pm on 5th June 2014. The exhibition will run from 5th June 2014 – 26th July 2014. For more information please visit www.artinmacclesfield.co.uk or follow the gallery on Twitter @artinmacc.
