Ann Gordon, Flying Duck
Ann Gordon is the featured artist in Skylark 2 until 11 August. Ann is a printmaker and book-binder who lives and works in south London. She was brought up in the north-west of England and studied fine art in Sheffield. Specialising in kinetic sculpture, she moved into animation, film-making and, more recently, printmaking and book-binding.
“I work quickly and change subjects often,” she says, “but there is a recurring
theme in my work: I like to record what is around me but I also want to transform and translate my surroundings so that my feelings lie behind the finished print. For this show, I have taken three works from areas of current interest: London, animals, waves and Harker’s barns (prints inspired by the American photographer, Michael Harker).”
In Skylark 1, at Gabriel’s Wharf, Wilf Frost shows from 5-11 August, with a private view on 9 August from 6pm to 9pm. In his paintings he creates an urban idyll; spaces to think, cities filled with butterflies, figures that fuse and morph together with each work portraying a sense of peace and unity.
His latest mixed-media works are a combination of house paint, spray paint, oil beads and collage, to name a few.
Jenny Carpenter shows at Skylark 1 from 12-18 August. Her beautiful mixed media paintings are perfect for a summer day with their pastel colours and seaside subject matter.
They are another ideal reason to head to the South Bank this summer, and drop in at Skylark Galleries. We look forward to seeing you there.
