  • Artist’s Talk: Jessie Brennan

    Talk

    Jessie Brennan is a visual artist whose practice explores the representation of places through processes of drawing and dialogue, informed by their social histories and changing contexts. The places she chooses are often sites of contradiction, inextricably shaped by urban development. Her work responds to the political, economic and class contexts of specific sites, informed by a direct engagement with the individuals who occupy them.

  • Artist's Talk: Yelena Popova

    Talk

    With their transparent, softened geometric forms, Yelena Popova's paintings recall the graphics and aesthetics of both Russian Constructivism and Minimalism, and open up conversations about the materiality of painting today. Her work uses many materials and draws on different types of production, from ceramics to a computer-generated code work that generates an infinite sequence of images based on Euro banknotes. Popova's work draws on the different histories of abstraction, from vanishing forms to the abstractions of capital.

    Talk

    Sussex Modernism: Retreat and Rebellion, a major new exhibition at Two Temple Place, London, examines why radical artists and writers were drawn to the rolling hills, seaside resorts, and quaint villages of Sussex in the first half of the 20th century and how, in the communities they created, artistic innovation ran hand in-hand with political, sexual and domestic experimentation.

  • Artist's Talk: Becky Beasley

    Talk

    British artist Becky Beasley explores relationships between photography and objects, the body and interiority in a way that is highly subjective and yet developed through deep immersion in the thoughts and methods of other artists and writers. Literature is particularly generative for the artist, providing her own work with a place to start from and to journey into.

  • Artist's Talk: Lothar Götz

    Talk

    Lothar Götz's practice ranges from site-specific wall paintings and room-sized installations to paintings and drawings. Common to each is Götz's engagement with architectural space and his characteristic use of abstract geometric forms, colour fields, and an intense use of line. Götz's large-scale wall drawings are dialogues with given environments, which have included foyers, reading rooms, offices and staircases. The patterns that Götz develops are intuitive, balanced, and sharply defined, presenting an exuberant and joyful show of colour.
