Rw Easterby

Date: 1 February 2016 to 07 February 2016
Opening Times: Mon 12-5:30pm; Tue-Sat 10am-5:30pm & Sun 10am-4pm
Location: The Showcase, Craft Central, 33-35 St John's Square, London, EC1M 4DS

In Rw Easterby's first solo show of 2016 he introduces a new selection of landscape paintings composed in oils, acrylic and mixed media which focus on texture and detail.

Painted onto wood discs or canvas, the majority of the works are in multiple sections. These pieces challenge more traditional styles of landscape painting and provide a new way of viewing such artwork.

Rw's scenes are influenced by the surroundings of his traditional Yorkshire childhood. However, their style and composition culminates in contemporary landscapes that appear neither abstract nore entirely representative and result in stunning landscape paintings.

Line Making: Drawing Machines and Machine Drawings

Date: 23 February 2016 to 28 February 2016
Opening Times: Tue-Sat 11am-7pm; Sun 11am-4pm
Location: The Gallery, Craft Central, 33-35 St John's Square, Clerkenwell, London, EC1M 4DS

Artist Damien Borowik makes handcrafted machine and uses them as creative tools to draw. In an iterative process, the artist continuously develops the digital and mechanical abilities of the machines, considering both their performativity and the aesthetics translated in the resulting artwork.

With a strong emphasis in using unpredictability and chance in his work, Borowik explores the aleatoric mark-making qualities of the machines through automation and mediation. Currently, he controls the machines to draw straight lines and create abstract Expanding Squares and deconstruct landscapes and cityscapes.

Both machines and drawing will be on display.
