Tiffany Parbs and Greg Fullerton - gloss

15 Feb - 17 Feb 2013

Acme Project Space

gloss is the application of a superficial lustre or shine, a glaze to create a false or deceptively good appearance, a thin veneer of truth masking the reality of what lays beneath.  An exhibition in two acts, gloss represents a monochromatic response to idealised concepts of preciousness and beauty.  Using sculpture, photography and lustre, gloss seeks to highlight an alternate view of the inherent value and worth of the familiar. Her work can also be seen in the Design Museum London as part of Unexpected Pleasures: the Art and Design of Contemporary Jewellery until 3rd March 2013.

Harriet Clare & Nick Lewin - Transient

31 Jan - 26 Feb 2013

Margaret Street Gallery

Transient teams images from Harriet Clare’s “Woebegone” series with Nick Lewin’s macro floral photographs. The images show the same fascination for marking the passing of time. Both artists take a somewhat melancholic journey, attempting to mark their own transient time in the present.

Constructing images using line, texture and repetitive montaging of branch imagery, Australian-born Harriet Clare creates delicate, natural kaleidoscopic works with an illustrative effect. Shot in the winter in her adoptive home of Berlin, these images hint at a fascination with the fleeting and a desire to forever hold onto an ephemeral life.
