Congratulations Ian Robinson

Ian Robinson’s painting Star Newspapers has been selected for inclusion, and will be published in the Aesthetica Art Prize Anthology, showcasing the works of 100 of the most exciting artists from around the world and is a dynamic guide to international contemporary art.  Ian comments,

 Star Newspapers was a commission for the boardroom of Star Capital Partners. The items in the foreground are so-called ‘tombstones’ that stand for key financial deals.  I immersed myself in finance and business newspapers from around the globe at the British Library archive and took many reference photographs, although eventually the still life was actually set up in my studio.”

Film Screening

Film Screening

“We are not wholly bad or good, who live our lives under milk wood”

Ushered in by Verdi and a Welsh male voice choir, the new film of Under Milk Wood is an utterly beautiful vision of Dylan Thomas’ seminal offering of magical prose poetry. Starring Rhys Ifans and Charlotte Church, the film is elegantly directed by Kevin Allen. This lush, enthralling production beautifully compliments the lyricism of Thomas’ masterpiece with its bold, dreamlike imagery. Allen’s erotic, surreal cinematic interpretation explores some of the more visceral elements of the funny, magical dreamscape of Thomas’ Welsh seaside village Llareggub (read it backwards!).
Come and watch with us, on Thursday 3rd December from 7pm.  Any profit from the sale of tickets will be donated to our charity, Crisis at Christmas.
Poetry and Short Stories

Poetry and Short Stories

“To begin at the beginning…”

Join us for a Sunday afternoon of readings from Dylan Thomas with the actress and narrator Melissa Berry.  As part of the Dylan Thomas Centenary, Melissa performed at the Do Not Go Gentle Festival in Uplands and the Dylathon at the Swansea Grand Theatre. This will be an inspiring and highly entertaining afternoon with mulled wine and mince pies in the wonderful setting of the gallery, surrounded by Peter Blake’s Under Milk Wood illustrations.
Join us to mark the opening of this exhibition, on Sunday 22nd November 3-5pm.  There are only 20 tickets available for this event, so book right now by clicking on the link.  Any profit from the sale of tickets will be donated to our charity, Crisis at Christmas.
Peter Blake's 3D Circus

Peter Blake’s 3D Circus

The 3D Circus works are unique new editions and Peter Blake has combined his love of the circus with his characteristic collaged crowds in a 3 dimensional format. The works are inspired by Lothar Meggendorfer’s International Circus – a pop-up book first published in 1887.  For his Circus, Blake has put together a central stage collage, which features a line up of unusual people, and an eclectic orchestra sourced from the Artist’s extensive collection of ephemera.  In addition, two weird and wonderful audience collages in which the crowds are being entertained by a circus act sit either side of the central stage. Peter Blake’s 3D Circus was produced and published by Dark Matter Studio in 2013.

Peter Blake's Tattooed People

Peter Blake’s Tattooed People

Portraiture has been prevalent in Peter Blake’s work since the late 1940s. From his images of pop culture icons to his imagined characters, the artist has always explored a diverse array of individuals.  A recent series of small, colourful watercolours depicting the faces and torsos of heavily inked men and women, their individual body art, intricately rendered, is again part of a recurring theme in Blake’s oeuvre: the circus, the fairground and the side-show attraction. The skins of these imagined characters have become canvases in themselves – one figure has an image of the Crucifixion emblazoned on his chest, whilst a tattooed woman has the names of the British Princes, William and Harry, etched on each breast. Another’s complex facial tattoos cover the entirety of his face, echoing the masks in Blake’s wrestling portraits. We present a series of 10 signed original prints, produced and published by Dark Matter Studio.

Over the Hills and Far Away

Over the next few weeks, some of the most recent work by the father of British Pop Art, Sir Peter Blake will be exhibited and offered for sale by One Church Street Gallery, alongside other selected artists with a literary connection (including John Piper, Kenneth Rowntree and several of our own gallery artists).  The collection presents Peter Blake’s Under Milk Wood, his new Tattooed PeopleVenice FantasiesParis Escapades and 3D Circus pop-up collages.

Opening on 14th November and running through until the New Year.
