Marlow Moss: In Focus

  • 2 October 2013 — 23 April 2014 *on now

The paintings, reliefs and sculptures, drawn from collections in the UK and Europe, are primarily concerned with an interrogation of movement, space and light.

Prior to the First World War, Moss produced highly abstract painted compositions similar to the work of Mondrian, with whom she is often associated and who she was close to for much of her life. Later, her practice developed toward the production of all-white reliefs and sculptural works.

Alfred Wallis, Two Boats, 1930

In Focus: Alfred Wallis

  • 1 February — 23 April 2014 *on now

Wallis, whose work also features in the Jerwood Collection, was a key figure in 20th century British art. He was perhaps an unusual artist, having no professional training and living reclusively in St Ives during his later life. His naïve style had a profound effect and influenced a number of British artists, including Ben Nicholson and Christopher Wood.

The exhibition will feature a selection of Wallis’ iconic seascapes, generously loaned by Kettle’s Yard.

Ansel Krut, Mussels, 2012

Ansel Krut: Verbatim

  • 3 May — 9 July 2014

The exhibition will bring together a series of largely unseen paintings by the London-based artist in what will be the largest exhibition and first survey show of Krut’s work to date.

Krut’s painting focuses around subverting still life by linking objects to create improbable, playful and often dark human forms. He ascribes much of the unsettling imagery in his paintings to growing up in Apartheid in South Africa. His grotesque and provocative inventions, drawing on paradoxes, vaudeville and peep show, are poised between absurdity and moral criticism. Krut’s technique involves constructing his surface with layers of nuanced paint application in which there is a strong relationship to drawing and pictorial space.

Jerwood Gallery’s summer exhibition will be a celebration of drawing, with a special 20th anniversary Jerwood Drawing Prize exhibition and a display of work by acclaimed illustrator, Sir Quentin Blake.

2014 marks the twentieth year of the Jerwood Drawing Prize, the largest and longest running annual open exhibition for drawing in the UK. To launch the 20th anniversary celebrations, Jerwood Gallery will be having an exhibition of drawings, profiling the unique focus of the Drawing Prize.

The exhibition will centre on the role of drawing in the practice of eminent artists who have been involved in the Drawing Prize project as selectors, and who represent excellence in British contemporary drawing. The exhibition has been developed in conjunction with Drawing Projects UK, led by Professor Anita Taylor.

The celebration of the Jerwood Drawing Prize coincides with an exciting project with multi award winning illustrator and part time Hastings resident, Sir Quentin Blake. Blake will make his own artistic response to 10 highlights from the Jerwood Collection, which will be on display in the collection galleries. A children’s guide to the gallery, illustrated by Quentin Blake, will support this display.

Over the summer there will be numerous drawing events and activities, including a drawing symposium led by Professor Anita Taylor of Drawing Projects UK. The gallery will also have a drawing café with activities for both children and adults.
