SIRENS

The Beaucatcher Salon 2015

"'Come here,' they sang, 'renowned Ulysses, honour to the Achaean name, and listen to our two voices. No one ever sailed past us without staying to hear the enchanting sweetness of our song- and he who listens will go on his way not only charmed, but wiser....but they quickened their stroke, and Eurylochus and Perimedes bound me with still stronger bonds till we had got out of hearing of the Sirens' voices.’" Homer, The Odyssey

 

 

 

A connection was made between the name ‘Beaucatcher’ and 'The 'Sirens' with the allure of their beautiful voices, who were written about in the Odyssey. They were depicted often as half woman, half bird, famous for luring the ships of sailors with their ethereal voices towards the shore to be wrecked on the rocks.The starting point for this series of Paintings has been their names and calligraphic options for form.There is a deliberate endeavour to explore the possibilities for a lyrical abstraction located in the Mediterranean.

RetroRetrospective

Angela Clarke

At the Fox Reformed

 

An exhibition exploring past methodology and expression, returning to approaches of artistic curation and exhibition display of the 1980's.

The work spans a timeframe of thirty years, and includes a selection of Drawings, Paintings and Prints. It is an opportunity to re-appraise earlier ways of seeing as well as modes of expression. Traditional subject matter such as portraiture, life-drawing and narrative are included, touching on both the imagined and the observed.
