ARTISTS FEATURING IN ‘KITH’

Margie Andrew-Reichelt

Portrait artist, is currently exhibiting with us. Shortlisted for the RA Summer Exhibition 2018 and selected for exhibitions at the Mall Gallery London several times. Won the 21st NOA Heart of England Artist of the Year. Using many mediums and techniques from clay to pastel & watercolour. Grantham Tennis Club

Uta Feinstein

Uta Feinstein is exhibiting with us. Uta’s paintings are concerned with dynamic interactions between fluid, organic nets and grids/geometric elements. Forces pull in different directions resulting in shifting tensions. Their release or ensuing fragmentation reflect various states of being or a response to current events.
Formal enquiry interplay’s with the associative potential and metaphorical connotations of the net. The net’s malleability makes it difficult to predict which state it might adopt. It can entrap or protect, save life or destroy it (internet/social media). Due to its ambiguity, the net serves as a vehicle to raise questions about uncertainty and contemporary issues, such as the social safety net, interconnectedness, networking and disintegration or isolation. My recent works have also been influenced by environmental issues and ecological networks.

NIC GEAR

Nic Gear is also exhibiting with us. Nic’s practice explores fresh approaches to drawing, marks and lines on a surface; a facsimile of the natural, using and highlighting the impact of the man made.
Within this investigation he walks the ‘Edgelands’ of Coxmoor, a liminal space between the urban and rural, observing the ‘seasons’ of a forgotten environment.
The artworks are not a direct description of the action of walking but elements such as contour and language marks, which take on notions of ‘mapping a way’, do elucidate the work.
Our understanding of reality, what we see, what we choose not to see are part of the journey of his work, as he observes the conflict between our human needs and the beauty of the landscape.

Julie Moosburg

Julie Moosburg is part of KITH Artists Collective. She is currently exhibiting with us, come in and have a look around. Her work centres on the body, movement and stillness; her images are made at a human scale, in response to current turmoil. A playful, dreamlike expression may surprise you.

Annie Samuel

Annie Samuel is exhibiting with KITH Artist Collective in the gallery. There are broad themes running through her work, some of which are influenced by internal dialogue of childhood and current memory. Her intention is to enable the viewer to access that space inside their own head when observing her work, and reflect on their own personal interpretation.
This exploration is relevant in her current practice. Drawn from a series of photographs from her family album, through the medium of pencil, pastel and acrylic, the essence of family before she was born, focussing on her father’s posting to RAF Fayid in Egypt, 1950.

Ju Smith

And here we have Ju Smiths work in response to the devastation of fire. In 2014 the near complete University of Nottingham GSK Carbon Neutral Sustainable Chemistry building was razed to the ground. The destruction of this important £27M environmental project was total.
Courageously those who worked on the building found the fortitude to start all over again and the ‘Phoenix’ rebuild was opened in 2017. Conveying the aftermath of fire devastation and the industry of reconstruction these works are collages of paint, photographs and mono prints.

LYDIA CRUMP

Lydia Crump is a member of KITH Artist Collective and is exhibiting with us now.
Curious about what lies beneath the surface. Lydia’s work explores complex internal worlds. Her work gives form to inner landscape sensations, memories and experience: the unspoken and the unseen.

Pamela Fletcher

Pamela Fletcher is exhibiting with us. The notion of ephemerality and cycles of existence have always been a major themes in Pamela’s work. Within the wider context of these concepts she pays attention to images emerging spontaneously from the unconscious. Often there is a vestigial link on the edge of her awareness to a dormant memory. These moments enhance her insights and connectedness with life experience.
Pamela’s art is a manifestation of a ruminous process often occurring whilst walking or meditating. The fleeting memory can quickly give way to an ‘essence’ which is conveyed to paper as the basis for her work.

Margaret Gettens

Margaret Gettens is the 7th artist out of 14 KITH Collective artists exhibiting with us. Margaret is a Fine Art Photographer from Nottingham Trent University with a Masters in Photography with distinction. How relevant is her work at these times of climate change. We need to act NOW.
She is concerned with the fragile nature of all life and within this body of work she considers the impact of climate change on our eco system. Through her images she asks the viewer to reflect on some of the stunning examples of nature to be seen all around us. Do we want to risk losing these, or take action before it is too late?

Hylma Price

Hylma Price is another member of KITH Artist Collective exhibiting with us now. Hylma has an interest in social history, a fascination for old, found, mundane objects and fragments. She is inspired to use their decoration in creating work that references their historical, social or cultural significance transposed to today’s world. Hylma works with a variety of media aiming to convey the ‘genius’ of place and time with reference to the artisans of a bygone era.

Mo Scotts

Her practice runs across multiple disciplines using a variety of media; painting, sculpture and installations. Light, reflection, shadows; natural or man-made attracts her and is frequently found within her work. She evokes an experience made of differing layers adding other dimensions: a memory, an observation, a sensory experience, psychological space, tension and the wonder of nature, mystery, curiosity.

Mary Wood

Her practice runs across multiple disciplines using a variety of media; painting, sculpture and installations. Light, reflection, shadows; natural or man-made attracts her and is frequently found within her work. She evokes an experience made of differing layers adding other dimensions: a memory, an observation, a sensory experience, psychological space, tension and the wonder of nature, mystery, curiosity.

Janet Wootton

Janet Wootton’s artwork is influenced by a career as a communicator in the creative industries: as a journalist; government information officer and broadcasting regulator. She now communicates via both words and art.
The artistic interpretation of messages depends upon colour, texture and design and her art evolves from the use of a varied range of sustainable and recycled materials.

Janet is also a performer, singing and acting with East Midlands choirs and theatre companies.
