Back Wall Series: Jan Williams

Jan Williams is the latest in our series of Welsh artists featured as part of our Back Wall Series in the gallery shop.

Jan Williams is a visual artist based in Cardiff. Her paintings for this exhibition are created by layering tinted lime wash on card. The choice of lime-wash is significant, a memory from her childhood of the annual lime-washing of the cowsheds on the family farm near Brecon. This continuous paint/erase method creates surfaces that are alive to the play, not only of chance, but that of editing and choice. The paintings slowly reveal a complex tension between surface and depth that creates a space for haunting, half remembered transitional spaces.

Back Wall Series: Peter Spriggs

Peter Spriggs is the latest in our series of Welsh artists featured as part of our Back Wall Series in the gallery shop.

Peter Spriggs graduated with BA (Hons) Fine Art from Cardiff Metropolitan Universityand MA(RCA) Painting from the Royal College of Art, London. He lectured in Adult Education  in Greater London before moving to Carmarthen School of Art at Coleg Sir Gar where he continues to celebrate the marks people make on the world and respect what people endeavour to build for themselves. “Making art is important because human relationships are important. Art helps us to understand each other.”

Peter exhibits work widely and  regularly with the 56 Group Wales, ARCIPELAGO (a pop-up collective of artists exhibiting and selling work) at the National Eisteddfod of Wales and in invited exhibitions such as “Fourteen” at Llantarnam Grange Art Centre. His next exhibition is at Haus Wittgenstein, Vienna, April 2018.

Y Gadair Ddu // The Black Chair, 2017, Ink drawings.

These drawings were made to commemorate the centenary of the Black Chair, won by the poet Hedd Wyn in the 1917 National Eisteddfod of Wales in Birkenhead for his ode titled The Hero. Tragically, Hedd Wyn died in the First World War Battle of Pilkern Ridge and was awarded the Chair posthumously. The Archdruid, Dyfed announced, Yr wyl yn ei dagrau a’r Bardd yn ei fedd – The Festival in tears and the Poet in his grave.  Ceremoniously, the chair was covered with a black sheet. The First World War robbed Wales of a significant talent. Hedd Wyn and the Black Chair have become icons of the futility and barbarity of war and a lost generation.
