Bringing fresh and thought provoking photography to the foreground,this Mayfair show offers expressive new work from Anthony Jones, Catherine Jacobs, Irene Lumley and Ray Spence.
Curved horizons, evocative shapes and vibrant textures celebrate the emotive issues of femininity, sensuality and sexuality that are central to Catherine Jacobs' work. Her intimacy series was selected for Food 99, the 10th Herefordshire Photography Festival. Other recent exhibitions include Artsway, the.gallery@oxo, Manuela Hofer Original Photographic Prints Gallery and the Battersea Contemporary Art Fair. Sense & Sensuality, an exhibition with painter Annabel Kapp,showed at Lewisham Art House Gallery, London and toured Shropshire Galleries with Gallery. Net 2000-1, who recently commissioned a residency based on her photographic practice.
Anthony Jones hand printed silver gelatin photographs display a humanistic and sympathetic viewpoint of the world. His work have been shown at Image 99, SE1 Gallery, Association of Photographers Gallery, the Paperleaf Art Fair, Battersea Contemporary Art Fair and the Kensington Art and Design Fair. While preparing for this exhibition his work has been selected to be represented by the John Stevenson Gallery, New York.
Irene Lumley's work explores the sculptural and textural qualities of the female nude. She chooses to photograph women who go largely unrepresented in western media in a positive and empowering way. Irene has exhibited widely and recent shows include Photofolio Gallery, Manuela Hofer Gallery and Battersea Contemporary Arts Fair. She also works collaboratively and has just finished a residency in association with the National Gallery touring programme exploring children's photographic responses to contemporary family life. She is currently working towards her second solo show, to be housed at The Pankhurst Centre Manchester, and is also completing an MA in Communication Media at Manchester Metropolitan University.
