Looking for something a little different this autumn? Check out the latest offering from The Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery, a three-person exhibition of recent work by mid-career London artists Liza Campbell, Lucy Temple and Sarah Hiscox.
Liza Campbell, Lucy Temple and Sarah Hiscox: There’s a Party on a Thursday in a Forest Near You
Campbell studied Art at Chelsea College of Arts, before relocating to a remote island off the coast of Kenya, where she studied traditional African craft in the context of her own work. Liza takes etchings printed on silk and paper and antique photographs, and re-works them using ink and acrylic in bright, psychedelic formations. ‘Putting the Rave back into Engraving’ includes engravings dating back to the 18th Century.
Temple is trained in Indian miniature painting, ceramic tiling, calligraphy and icon painting. Lucy takes traditional Islamic patterns and transforms them to create meticulous designs on paper in high pigment watercolour.
Hiscox is an icon painter who paints in the Russian Byzantine tradition. She describes her works as ‘drawn prayers’ and combines her ink drawings with gold leaf on handmade gessoed panel.
The three artists in question are united by their revival of traditional materials and techniques, and for bringing their subject matter up-to-date with a contemporary twist.
