The collection of guest curator Anthony Shaw is one of the most important holdings of contemporary ceramics, sculpture, two-dimensional art and other objects and is currently on long-term loan to the Centre of Ceramic Art at York Art Gallery. He writes: 'My friendship (with Gordon Baldwin) has been a considerable influence in my life... (His) unique vocabulary of white forms with painterly additions of colour, set him apart from the rest of the pottery world (and) question the prevailing views about ceramics and what they could be.'*PLEASE NOTE THE GALLERY WILL BE CLOSED ON SATURDAY 9 JUNE
Ewen Henderson Late Abstractionscurated by Anthony Shaw12 July to 1 September
The second in our two part series of exhibitions with guest curator Anthony Shaw. Of Ewen Henderson, Shaw comments; 'With Gordon Baldwin, Ewen Henderson was a considerable influence (on me), opening my senses and being, to search out feelings in work, rather than just the appearance... The strength of the inner man, senses of symbolism and belief, the serious nature of being, all contribute to his lifeline of human nature. This makes (Henderson) unforgettable.'Marsden Woo Gallery and Anthony Shaw are also collaborating with S|2 on their forthcoming Ewen Henderson exhibition, taking place from 20 July - 21 September at Sotheby’s London.
Kerry Jameson13 September to 27 October
For Kerry Jameson, work often starts with an idea or an emotion, and this attracts similar material like a magnet. She collects things that speak to her, almost as though there is a strange connection linking the observer with the observed. This new body of work responds to the artist's travels across Europe, exploring collections that were amassed throughout the Middle Ages, Renaissance, and Baroque periods, including The Treasury art within Dresden’s Green Vault and the Habsburg collection in Vienna. For Jameson, relics and reliquaries encountered in the churches of Antwerp and Brussels demonstrate the symbolic union of materials encasing cloth and bones, reminding us of the line that separates the dead from the living.
