Stinking Rich
Stinking Rich by Andrew Swan
7 Sept – 9 Oct 2021
Daisy Laing Gallery

Stinking Rich is a nine month project researching and analysing extreme individual wealth. It focusses on seven of the richest people in the UK and worldwide, exploring how they created their wealth and the impact this activity has had on society and the environment.

The resulting exhibition consists of a series of seven etched and sprayed panels created out of recycled printing plates.

An exciting group show by six artists with strong connections to Newlyn – Yolande Armstrong, Dan Pyne, Anita Reynolds, Jo Gorman, Gordon Ellis-Brown and Mike Thorpe.

For many, merely existing in the Age of the Anthropocene creates an acute sensitivity to our actions and interactions with each other and the world around us. This exhibition explores some of the joys and the frictions of co-existence. In a world where we are increasingly understanding to be systems upon systems of inter-dependent networks, everything which happens cannot fail to leave its mark on everything. This exhibition traces some of these marks and asks questions about their significance.

Mark in Time at Jupiter Gallery, Newlyn, Cornwall., 20th to 25th September. Opening event Monday 20th September 6.30-9.00pm

“In The Forest” is an exhibition of porcelain sculptures set to open at Daisy Laing Gallery in Penzance. Taiwanese ceramicist Winnie Lyn has created a bespoke collection of carved and altered, reformed and refined porcelain sculptures, finished in mystery forms of shapes in the forest. Winnie Lyn is one of the key advocate and committee member of Penzance Festival of Art. Her practice concerns experience and memories, aiming to translate the truth and pretense of life into the mediums of ceramics, drawing and mixed sculptures. Currently, focusing on inter-generational narrative, around both human and human to environment dialogues. Winnie Lyn channels her concerns into abstract forms, which carry both an emotional charge and a “radiation” of meaning. From 3rd June to 3rd July, “In The Forest” will be exhibited in Daisy Laing Gallery, Penzance. More details please visit www. DaisyLaing.co.uk or WinnieLyn.Art

 

 

NSA Member Janet Lynch has just had a feature published in the latest issue of The Jackdaw magazine. In it she writes compellingly of her experience exhibiting her anti-war paintings in an exhibition accompanying a performance of Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem in Coventry Cathedral in 1987 and of the powerful responses her work evoked.
