The first works displayed at Marsden Woo Gallery by Kerry Jameson were from her 'Conflict' series in November 2009. Shortly after exhibiting this series she joined our stable of gallery artists along with Nao Matsunaga and Dawn Youll. Philip Sayer took these stunning pictures of the two main pieces 'The Advance' and 'The Battle'. The first image was used in a fantastic centre-spread feature in a-n magazine.
Alongside Nao and Dawn, Kerry is currently showing a substantial new 'body' of work (in more ways than one...!) in our current exhibition 'Introducing' which opened last night. The show runs until 30 April 2011.

These images show work in progress by Stephenie Bergman for her upcoming show, 'The Wire and Other Works' in our Project Space, 5 May - 18 June 2011.
Bergman will transform Marsden Woo Gallery’s Project Space into an extraordinary habitat furnished with bold and exotic artefacts, both functional and decorative. They include room dividers and lights, arrangements of boxes and ceramic boulders, tables and cups, all far from orthodox in form. The collection also comprises newly invented things, such as a playful sculptural object that serves as a shrine-like receptacle for a special pair of shoes.
A delight in the interplay of shape, line, colour and texture has been a feature of Bergman’s art and design work since she first came to prominence as a painter, in the 1970s. Since that time she has moved effortlessly between different media (canvas and paint, wood, clay and glaze), following her creative concerns to make a great variety of artefacts. Now working mainly with ceramic materials she finds inspiration in her immediate surroundings (dividing her time between bases in the Var, France and Taroudant, Morocco, with occasional trips to the UK). She also works to meet her own domestic needs, or by commission to meet the requirements of others.
Bergman’s intuitive and innovative approach results in fresh, arresting objects. Made to be used or otherwise lived with, these are life-affirming works that lift the human spirit.
