Art ex­hi­bi­tion

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A QUAR­TET of artists from west Lon­don have se­cured the cov­eted chance to ex­hibit their work at Lon­don’s Bar­bican Cen­tre.

Trac­ing Time, Plac­ing Marks fea­tures pieces in­spired by Bri­tain’s evolv­ing land­scape and the changes wrought by na­ture and mankind.

The free ex­hi­bi­tion by mem­bers of the Lon­don Artist Print­mak­ers will open at the Bar­bican Li­brary on Fri­day, Septem­ber 30, and will run un­til Oc­to­ber 26.

Jenny Lag­nado, a for­mer teacher who lives in Isle­worth and has taught at West Thames Col­lege and Chiswick School , among other es­tab­lish­ments, is part of the col­lec­tive.

She said she and her fel­low artists had found their muse in sub­jects as di­verse as rock for­ma­tions, the traces of old in­dus­try on the Cor­nish coast and the ru­ral po­etry of John Clare.

She added that the dis­play would in­clude not just the fin­ished works but also the many steps taken to get there, of­fer­ing view­ers an insight into the cre­ative jour­ney. Of­ten you go to an ex­hi­bi­tion and you just see the fin­ished pieces, which look as though they’ve sprung from nowhere,” she said. “We will be show­ing ev­ery­thing from a scrib­ble on the back of an en­ve­lope to our sketch books with prepara­tory draw­ings to re­veal the full process.”

Trac­ing Time, Plac­ing Marks is at the Bar­bican Li­brary, Bar­bican Cen­tre, EC2Y 8DS un­til Oc­to­ber 26. En­try is free.
