JAMIE BARNES : SEA STRUCTURES
Oct 5, 2019 - Jan 26, 2020
Inspired his explorations of coastal paths around Wales, Anglesey, Northumberland, Cumbria and Scotland. A curious set of accompanying sea structures started to appear in Jamie’s work, not only the obvious structures such as lighthouses, but also more unusual, such as orientation beacons, transmitters and glowering power stations.
 
Drawing underpins Jamie’s practice, transforming his line drawing through the magic of the aquatint etching process. He values etching for the quality of line it can produce, its depth of texture and for the random marks picked up by the process which he often chooses to preserve.

AS IT IS : MAN’S FOOTPRINT ON THE WELSH LANDSCAPE
Oct 16, 2019 - Jan 26, 2020
Photographs by Magnum photographer David Hurn, accompanied by a film about the artist by Zed Nelson.

NOBUKO TSUCHIYA : 30 WAYS TO GO TO THE MOON
Nov 9, 2019 - Mar 1, 2020
This new body of work by Japanese artist Nobuko Tsuchiya is showing for the first time in Wales.
 
Working primarily with sculpture, Tsuchiya’s practice uses a wide range of materials, often including household objects, collected over time, which she assembles and casts to create amorphous, hybrid minimalist mechanical objects.

CHIARA CAMONI
Nov 9, 2019 - Mar 1, 2020
Featuring new and recent works, the exhibition, About this and that. The self and the other. Like everything. includes a collaborative site specific work created for MOSTYN.
 
Working primarily across drawing, sculpture and installation, Camoni creates spaces imbued with poetic sensibility. Her work is the result of a process which she calls ‘deviations’ where materials are sourced through chance encounters and individuals or ‘various authors’ close to her. Through this process, Camoni claims that ‘meaning is shared, it’s a small miracle. It’s her and their way of resisting – the fear, the passage of time, the news of the day’.

Nov 9, 2019 - Mar 1, 2020
Working primarily with painting, Anj Smith is interested in reflecting on the very possibilities and limitations of the medium itself.
 
Her work excavates often-overlooked art histories, which she combines with her lived experiences, to form the layers of her work. Exploring the very edges of representation, Smith's ’s intricately rendered paintings explore issues of identity, eroticism, mortality and fragility. Within her remarkably detailed works, wildly feral landscapes, ambiguous figures, textiles, and rare and exotic flora and fauna are used, weaving archaic traditions and contemporary signs together into a personal cosmology. Her paintings are rich in detail, colour and texture, collapsing strict definitions of portraiture, landscape and still-life whilst allowing elements of each to coexist.
