New Art Highlights of the week includes: Emma Saffy Wilson, Jim Roseveare, Miriam Sheppard and Hayley Field.
Mould Study, 2021 by Emma Saffy Wilson
Part of a series of works on canvas and wood.
Fish Stock, 2011 by Jim Roseveare
Installation made from polystyrene fish boxes collected from the fish huts of Hastings. The boxes derived from such destinations as Scotland, Norway and even Japan.
Hastings Contemporary Art Gallery can be seen in the background, the construction of which led to many contentious debates. The gallery may be seen as a symbol of gentrification against the background of the working Fisherman's beach of Hastings Old Town. How then was this sculptural installation to be perceived?
Head in the Clouds, 2019 by Miriam Sheppard
During Somerset Art Works Festival 2019 I took over The Loft at Heritage Courtyard Gallery and Studios. I used this opportunity to pilot an atmospheric, immersive installation: a drawing large enough to sit inside.
Totem (modular painting), 2021 by Hayley Field
