Apr 27 - May 14, 2017
‘[The] simple act of tying a knot is an adventure in unlimited space ... an excursion that is limited only by the scope of our own imagery and the length of the rope makers coil.'
 
Clifford Ashley, The Ashley Book of Knots
 
From 27th April to 14th May, Lewisham Art House will present KNOTS, an exhibition of new work by Shiree Allen, Nancy Edwards, Jo Evans and Liz Workman.
 
Knots are everywhere in our daily life, often overlooked but always invaluable. Working in print, photography, sculpture and works on paper, each artist has responded to the theme of knots: the literal (tangled, connected, binding, tension, repetition); the psychological and emotional (stomach knots, ‘certain knot of peace’, tying the knot); and the mythological (Gordian knots, Heraldic knots). A collaborative sculpture forms the centrepiece of the exhibition.

JONATHAN GABB : TEMPO PROCESS + GRASS
Jul 27 - Aug 6, 2017
Private view Fri Jul 28 6pm - 9pm
tempo process + grass investigates the connections between spaces and processes. Exploring themes of colour, material, environment, artefact and documentation, Gabb’s continued interest in re-contextualising ‘conventional’ fine art painting practices, considers it within the experience of installation through performative actions. Manoeuvring in and out of systems and processes, and in and out of fine art and rudimentary materials and methods, tempo process + grass seeks to invert traditional notions of formal abstraction and material contextualisation: The limits of process art are explored in the internal volume of Lewisham Arthouse which seeks to explore and fill the gallery space with a diverse composition of materials, tempered by identifiable references in pivotal points.
