BOUND-a Photo Essay- “all the ways in which we are bound to now”
A collaborative work between Other Dance.Art (Hannah Ashmore Art Direction, Dancer Ashton Hall) Photographer Andi Sapey.
As two dance artists explore the restriction of their current space and time we cross the boundaries of photography, performance and installation.
The body becomes art in and of itself and in this BOUND moment we create a new visual language as we communicate the emotions of being right here BOUND to now.

The Violinist
Oil on canvas

£500

 


Ange Serra Ange Serra
The Fragile, the Ill and the Ignorant
Oil on cancas
70cm x 80cm
£800

My work portrays human imbalance in both present and on a near future, using symbolic meaning through characters. It is meant to make people reflect on today's social responsibility and the dangers of devaluation of the being. Whilst its title is quite self-explanatory within the pandemic crisis we're living in, this painting incorporates references of spiritual content, beginning-end cycle, fragility and dehumanisation, highly influenced by artists like James Ensor and Christian Schad and the novels Homo Deus and Do Andoids Dream of Electric Sheep from Yuval Noah Harari and Phillip K Dick respectively.

 


Daniel Sharples Daniel Sharples
Tōji Temple
Oil on cotton
20cm x 25cm
£750

A painting made on a recent trip to Japan. Taking refuge in a temple doorway during a downpour offered a moment of solitude and contemplation, with particular focus given to the imposing and wondrous architecture of the ancient Tōji Temple.

Remember Now
Hand cut Paper, spray paint, pins, foam board
87cm x 67cm
£900

Castellated tower blocks mimic sandcastles, inside all manner of goings on take place. Outside wild animals wander freely as they reclaim the newly deserted streets.


Eve Smith Eve Smith
The Golden Hour
Oil on canvas
45cm x 45cm
SOLD

Nature has fascinated artists for centuries but in today’s modern age it seems to have lost its importance, which highlights humankind’s disregard and detachment from it. Through the medium of paint, I have explored the joy experienced in nature and the romantic theme of escapism, discovering a way of returning to nature and evading the complex modernity of urban life, something that is particularly relevant in these unorthodox times. Yellow is a symbol of joy. The flower over the skin represents the sun on the skin on a summer’s day. Linking back to memories of nature and childhood.


Eleanor-Rose Stamp Eleanor-Rose Stamp
White Horse
Graphite & Charcoal
79cm x 106cm
£2,000

With a lifelong relationship with animals to inform and inspire me, I aim to capture their reality, their vulnerability, their beauty, their strength and their character; to reveal an intimate moment in their lives. I am especially passionate about horses and my deep understanding and knowledge of the horse imbue my work with exceptional power.

 


Beth Stilgoe Beth Stilgoe *
Solace
Photograph
29.7cm x 40cm
£50

This work is a homage to the Norfolk coastline, a location I have become familiar with throughout my life, the light painting responds and draws attention to the sense of place one feels at the beach, as well the celebration of childhood memory. It sheds light on the location at night, a familiar location at an unfamiliar time of day.

Flag Fen
Oil, pencil and chalk on canvas
40cm x 40cm
£795

Flag Fen is a painting created with a specific place in mind. I wanted to capture the movement of wind and passing weather over a field in high summer. Flag Fen is also the site of an ancient raised trackway that cuts through once water bound marshland and I wanted to capture the idea of time passing over an ever shifting landscape that we are just passing through.


Symis EmiliaEmilia Symis *
Lockdown Diet
Acrylic on canvas
90cm x 90cm
£1,200

Lockdown Diet was created at home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Easter fell within the brackets of lockdown and like many other people facing this situation, Emilia found herself turning to chocolate to keep her spirits high. This painting showcases the variety of recognisable textures and colours found within confectionary and its packaging. Forming a chaotic composition, your eye darts around the painting, discovering more the longer you look. Emilia wanted the piece to almost turn into a game where the viewer can identify the different bars and match them to their packaging thus bringing a bit of fun to a bad situation. Lockdown Diet is a painting that people of all ages can engage with and relate to a time where we were all in the same position
