Back Wall Series: Annie Thibault

Annie Thibault is the latest in our series of artists featured as part of our Back Wall Series in the gallery shop.

Inspired by an aesthetic sense of where art, science, and nature intermingle, Annie Thibault’s practice employs multiple forms as diverse as drawing, sculpture, installation, photography and video.  Her recent interest in various forms of living and little-known networks has led to an art that encourages part-scientific and part-artistic exploration of non-human life, its remarkable resilience, and its untapped potential.

Annie Thibault lives and works in Gatineau, Qc., Canada.  She has studied both science and art and completed a degree in Visual Art at l’Université du Québec en Outaouais. Recipient of numerous grants, awards, and prizes, including Claudia De Hueck Fellowship in Art and Science, Thibault has completed several permanent public art projects in addition to exhibitions and residencies in biological laboratories in Canada, Barcelona and in Finland.  In 2017 she will be in residence at Carleton University’s Department of Biology.  Her works are in the collection of numerous public and private collections including the permanent collection of the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec.  She completed her Master’s degree at the University of Ottawa in 2016 and was the recipient of the Michel Goulet prize.

 

Annie Thibault is currently an exhibiting artist in ‘Situation/Material/Ocean’ which is part of the Ephemeral Coast series of exhibitions and events curated by Celina Jeffery in association with Mission Gallery, Swansea.

Ephemeral Coast links the bays of Swansea, Port Talbot and Carmarthen with coastal spaces internationally, including Mauritius, the USA, and Canada. Working with an array of artists, climate change scientists and writers from the humanities, the exhibition seeks to develop a nexus of understanding between art, empathy, and the degradation of the ocean. A series of exhibitions will unfold across the region from early 2017 to Spring 2018, each addressing a different approach to imaging and imagining the demise of the ocean as witnessed through coastal visuality.

Back Wall Series: Lucia Elena Jones

Lucia Elena Jones is the latest in our series of Welsh artists featured as part of our Back Wall Series in the gallery shop.

Lucia Elena Jones’ practice explores the tactile nature of paint through rhythm, repetition and colour whilst forming pathways to memories spanning across continents, medium and decades alike. Resting on the cusp between abstraction and representation, her paintings draw inspiration from travels to Japan, an Italian-Welsh heritage and exchanges invoked from collective memory and found imagery. Time, place and material possibilities of paint unfurl on bare canvas, nostalgia ebbing forth in their midst.

A Cardiff-based painter, Jones graduated from Falmouth University in 2014 with First Class BA(hons) in Fine Art and has since exhibited in Penarth, Manchester, St Ives and London.

Back Wall Series: Ruth Harries

Ruth Harries is the latest in our series of Welsh based artists featured as part of our Back Wall Series in the gallery shop.

“My work is quite diverse by nature; stitch, mixed media construction and installation, using an array of materials and colour schemes but the’ Home’ /‘Cartref’ pieces continue to play with the simple representation and importance of the home.  There are figurative and abstract elements, which re-present the emotionally charged emotions, atmospheres and recollections within the family.

Working directly; letting it grow and develop intuitively and spontaneously, I use machine and hand stitch, where dense layers are built up, achieving subtle variations in colour, tone and texture, in a free and expressive way.

The diverse qualities of mark-making produced by painting, drawing and writing are considered in stitch.”

Back Wall Series: Lil Tudor Craig

Artist, Lil Tudor-Craig is the latest in our series of Welsh based artists featured in our Back Wall Series in the gallery shop.

Lil Tudor-Craig uses painting as a way to explore, understand and celebrate the natural world of the British Isles. Her interest is in ecology or the relationship of living things to each other and to their habitat.

The piece we are showing, called The Edge of the Marsh makes particular reference to the marshland of west Wales, showing a ‘snap-shot’ of that habitat at a particular time of year. It is conceived as if time could be stretched so that one could look at that place for a month all in one day. The flora and the insect life depicted could all be found there during that time. Much of the detail is tiny, so a magnifying glass is provided to look closely at the creatures represented.

Tudor-Craigs’s paintings celebrate the beauty of often overlooked simple places such as reedbeds, brambles, nettles, field corners and thorn thickets with the incredible diversity of species that live there. Some paintings are of more complex long-established plant communities such as old meadows and their web of intricately dependent species. The paintings celebrate species of plants and animals that are still common, and are also an elegy for those that are passing into history.

The paintings are made using egg tempera, a paint made by mixing very pure pigments with egg yolk. Intense colours and fine detail are possible with this medium. This is painted onto high quality plywood panels which are prepared using gesso to provide the ground . Each painting takes at least three months to complete.
