Justin Hibbs

Across his practice, Justin Hibbs picks apart the mechanics of spatial perception and representation, drawing upon social, political and aesthetic agendas encoded within architectural structures “Hibbs’s works are worldly, imperfect at the outset.” Martin Herbert Justin Hibbs.

Peter Liversidge

Every element in an exhibition of work by Peter Liversidge begins at the artist’s kitchen table with Liversidge sitting alone writing proposals on an old manual typewriter. These hand-typed pages, present an array of possible and impossible ideas for performances and artworks in almost every conceivable medium

Rules of The Library for The Drawing Room

Gibson Martelli

'MAN A takes military Dazzle Camouflage as its point of departure. Unlike traditional camouflage which operates on the principle of concealment, dazzle camo uses complex arrangements of high-contrast, interrupted patterns of geometric shapes intended to confuse the calculation of a ship’s range, speed and bearing in an enemy’s optical gunnery rangefinder.

Clare Mitten

The dialogue between object and image is at the heart of Mitten’s practice. Quickly-made painterly objects, (constructed from packaging, paper and other stationery), function as three-dimensional sketches for drawing, painting and collage, whereby the original is transformed through flattening, editing and error.

John Richert

In an endless loop around re-negotiation of design and art, presentation and display, Richert’s fabrications accurately reproduce the materiality and irresistible allure of contemporary fine art - and so become immaculate objects of desire in themselves.’

Echo Chamber Rosalind Davis, Caroline Lambard, Michaela Nettell Curated by Rosalind Davis 26th September- 4th October 2014 “We make spaces in relation to us but the spaces then re-make us” – Niall McLaughlin, architect Bond House Gallery, ASC Studios, Bond House, SE14 6BL Echo chamber is an exhibition and exchange between three artists interested in the perceptual experience of space and form. ‘Echo chamber’ in this case refers to a gallery in which ideas, processes and materials are brought together to reverberate one against another, in which shared ways of working can be observed and new thoughts and practices set in motion.

Rosalind Davis Davis co-founded and directed an artist-led space Core Gallery, for two years in Deptford and worked with over 200 Artists and Curators, programmed 17 Exhibitions, 5 open studios, 22 workshops & talks. "Working with Core Gallery is an energising and inspiring experience for me as a curator. It embodies many of the most positive aspects of artist led spaces, acting as a platform for risk taking, experimentation and diversity of practice with real commitment to and engagement with the development of the local arts ecology" Nick Kaplony

Core Gallery 2009-11

‘ An ‘interested’ and engaged space, connecting with artists and its context in collaboration and debate. The gallery’s programme is seen through many voices rather than one which seems to indicate something about an artist led space operating as a community, one where ownership of the space and its output is shared between its members and collaborators’ Nick Kaplony

Curatorial Development: Extraordinary, Core Gallery, Deptford Curated by Rosalind Davis & Jane Boyer. .

REVIEW: An exhibition exploring a “disjointed world of macabre coexistence” Extra-Ordinary, a subversive mixed media show by three London artists ; Tom Butler, Alyson Helyer and Marion Michell, diving headlong into the depths of identity and the psyche, the real and the unreal, and the anguish of memory. Extra-Ordinary at Core Gallery in the depths demonstrates, worthwhile art flows in all directions “ Whitehot Magazine.

Open Submission Exhibitions Included Iain Andrews ( Marmite Painting Prize) Claire Mitten (Jerwood Painting Fellow) EJ Major (Salon Photo Prize)
