{"payload":{"data":[{"id":"548","created":"2022-05-11 13:29:32","modified":"2022-05-23 16:03:56","title":"The Big Draw","extract":"The Big Draw and award winning illustrator, designer and educator Russell Walker are set to take over The Coningsby Gallery, in Fitzrovia, London. Russell Walker\u2019s exhibition, \u2018Oh Yeah\u2019 opens to the public from Monday 6 June, and can be enjoyed over a full two weeks until 18 June. Alongside the exhibition, national visual literacy charity, The Big Draw will take a week\u2019s residency of the space from 13 June. First working together in 2000, Russell Walker and The Big Draw have a longstanding relationship and their mutual focus on drawing and image making is evidenced in the \u2018Oh Yeah\u2019 exhibition. Over the week residency, The Big Draw will host a series of talks, masterclasses and workshops sharing industry insights and family friendly events. Kate Mason, Director of The Big Draw said: "The Big Draw is delighted to be collaborating with such ideal partners. The Big Draw, Russell Walker and The Coningsby Gallery share aligned beliefs and core values around the importance of the role of artists and illustrators across education, industry, communication and, also of increasing importance, health and wellbeing. These interests align around this year\u2019s Big Draw Festival 2022 theme, \u2018Come Back to Colour' and the focus for Russell Walker\u2019s exhibition, \u2018Oh Yeah\u2019. \u2018Come Back to Colour\u2019 encapsulates what we all hope will be a rediscovery of the vitality, health, care and vibrancy in everyone's lives after what has been a challenging few years. It is not about trying to recapture a time that has been lost, but about capturing, celebrating and finding joy with all the beautiful and wondrous things that remain. This ethos is mirrored perfectly in \u2018Oh Yeah\u2019 with its recurring motifs around reflecting and looking forward to happier, and more colourful times.\u201d A leading light in the visual arts industry, Russell Walker has worked with many of the creative industry's leading advertising, design and publishing agencies both nationally and internationally. His work is immediately distinctive, bold, elegant and with a confident economy of line and unity, all underpinned with a genuine passion for drawing that began from an early age. \u2018Oh Yeah\u2019 started from a space of wellbeing, growing from a time in 2020 after several pandemic lock-downs and many days of Covid-19 isolation. Russell decided it was essential to reconnect with the creative world, as well as old friends using his latest body of work as the vehicle to do so. The resulting collection of large vibrant images explores a range of themes from Christmas to Kubrick, Spectacles to Space Ships, Animals to Androgyny. Each work is drawn with style, wit and a graphic positivity for our time. Commenting on this time, Russell Walker said, \u201cCocooned away from the world during this time, I started to graphically reminisce, relive and reflect upon happier episodes from my youth. Consequently, I was able to re-imagine a time of hazy cosmic jive...on paper.\u201d Andrew Coningsby of Coningsby Gallery said: \u201cI\u2019m thrilled to be hosting The Big Draw and Russell Walker and supporting their valuable mission to enhance lives by nurturing and promoting the many benefits of drawing. The two-week exhibition, packed with Russell\u2019s art and The Big Draw events, will be great fun for all who visit.\u201d On the Coningsby Gallery, Kate Mason commented: \u201cThe Coningsby Gallery has carved out a unique role in London\u2019s busy art gallery scene. Its continued championing of outstanding contemporary illustration and graphic art from around the world is a brilliant commitment to showcasing emerging talent as well as established artists.\u201d The Big Draw events are set to include an evening talk on exhibiting artwork, live drawing sessions and a range of drop-in and bookable creative workshops. Spaces will be bookable on Eventbrite, and via The Big Draw website.

And hypnosis is multiplied. And I say so because Alan leads us with his new pieces to desire something that we didn\u2019t even know we wanted. Similar to how we feel when we get to find something unexpected in our grandparents\u2019 drawers, or in a flea market or inside a forgotten pocket. Something we wish we could own and collect. A kitsch act of seduction in an ever-expanding universe. But after going through the desire to belong to that universe, we discover the narrative that Alan is telling us both as a fiction and as a documentary. And then he generously invites us to be protagonists. Because stages, bubbling advertising, and devices which beg to be used make us take the bait to own them as soon as possible. Alan has captured us and has thrown us back in the water time and time again. We are both hunters and hunted, fishermen and fished. And sooner rather than later, we will find ourselves in front of the mirror, dressed in garish and sporty outfits like a Hunter Thompson from the Parana River ready to fish.","exhibition_start":"2022-05-30 09:30:00","exhibition_end":"2022-06-04 18:00:00","highlighted":"1","calendar_item_only":"0","published":"1","deleted":"0","_media":{"id":"3738","created":"2022-05-24 15:03:03","modified":"2022-05-27 14:44:44","res_type":"image","res_id":"0","content_id":"549","image_id":"6653","disp_order":"0","title":"Dinamita Cardozo.jpg","description":"","published":"0","deleted":"0"},"artists":[],"site_url":"exhibition\/carnada-viva-3-alan-berry-rhys-may-2022","tags":{"screenprint":{"id":"65","created":"2012-03-13 12:51:45","modified":"2012-03-13 12:51:49","cat_slug":"product-type","tag_slug":"screenprint","tag_label":"Screenprint","published":"0","deleted":"0"},"hand-drawn":{"id":"62","created":"2012-02-17 10:26:08","modified":"2012-02-17 10:26:08","cat_slug":"medium","tag_slug":"hand-drawn","tag_label":"Hand Drawn ","published":"0","deleted":"0"}}},{"id":"547","created":"2022-05-06 15:02:01","modified":"2022-05-13 09:44:42","title":"Gurushots Photography Exhibition","extract":"The international photography platform, GuruShots, will be making their next appearance on the photography scene in London with their exhibitions at Coningsby Gallery in May 2022.

It is a journey of exploration into the cosmos by the artists, yearning and conjecturing about the unknown and physically inaccessible areas in a poetic and lively way. Each painting presents a different imagination around the workings of time, space, and matter; surreal scenes and characters appear in a dreamlike form. The works analyse what we see or think about the universe reveals much of human psychology and the position of the human community in a grand picture, implying a metaphor of a grander living system. This exhibition also asks: Can the overlapping of different dimensions and the infinity of time and space reflect the infinite nature of human beings\u2019 own existence. Human beings have long dreamed of roaming to the edge of the universe. In these works, both time and space seem to extend to distant horizons like an immersive adventure, suggesting an escape from the mundane. The unknown is not out of reach but can be found inherently.

In the eyes of artists, no matter they are delving internally into themselves or gazing at external objects, often it ends with a projection of their own experience, either explicitly or inclusively. When authors leave the party, and only creations are left, we stumble into a Nomadland, rolling and tossing, seeking the intangible neutrality that might be closest to the objectivity and ourselves.
