NOW ON: PHILIP EGLIN, 'KICK THE BUCKET' UNTIL 8 OCTOBER

We have just opened his latest exhibition - Kick the Bucket by Marsden Woo Gallery artist Philip Eglin. The show runs until 8 October and sees the artist revisiting two familiar themes of his accomplished practice - a new series of large, vibrantly coloured bucket forms and a further investigation of the female nude.

This richly expressive series sees the artist continuing to explore and improvise with clay, while making work that both challenges and provokes the viewer.

OPENING SOON: OWEN BULLETT 'SURFACE TENSION' 20 JULY - 3 SEPTEMBER 2016

Whilst Owen Bullett's previous exhibition with Marsden Woo Gallery was concerned with form and the intersection of solid and void, there is now a fusion of these elements within and surrounding this intriguing series. Volume and form don't just co-exist as separate entities; they have become consciously enmeshed.

These new sculptures have a distinct presence and although physically grounded, there is cohesion of energy and movement at play, as the title suggests. Placed in the landscape of the gallery space, this merging of form and anti-form creates a discourse around the works that echoes across the exhibition.

Working on a smaller scale that his previous solo show at Marsden Woo Gallery, a sense of intimacy from working at his bench can be seen and felt. Using native English wood such as oak, cedar and elm, Bullett heightens the natural characteristics of his materials - some pieces are roughly knotted, others are finely shaped, and these are then further juxtaposed with various metal components and lively injections of colour. These contrasts within the work place an emphasis on what is observed and what is hidden, what is felt and what is absent.

UPCOMING SHOW: KERRY JAMESON, 'ALCHEMY' 15 JUNE - 16 JULY 2016

Acts of transformation and transmutation are key driving forces behind Kerry Jameson's upcoming exhibition. Taking inspiration from shamanic aspects of alchemy, and early culture such as the Lascaux cave paintings of the Paleolithic era, this new series of work evokes the movement of a primal state of consciousness into a place of realisation, and her strange, dream-like creatures form a powerful link between the mythological and the everyday.

The show takes pace from 15 June - 16 July, more details can be found on our website: http://www.marsdenwoo.com/press.htm
