JPS - Conker The World, Print Release with Graffiti Street

Atelier JI are delighted to announce our recent print collaboration with the incredible street artist JPS and UK Publishers Graffiti Street. "Conker the World" by JPS, was produced in May 2017 and released by "Graffiti Street". 

Street artist JPS, was on a downward spiral until a visit to the Banksy exhibit in Bristol turned his life around. The 37-year-old street artist from Weston-super-Mare had an addiction to drugs and alcohol, and was living rough. Inspired by Banksy, JPS has developed his own style creating playful street art. "Conker the World" is an 8 colour screen print with hand finished globe by JPS, with an additional three special colour-ways including pink, silver and gold glitter bow.

Stencil artist JPS first painted this piece in an abandoned factory in Germany, 2016 and most recently created a full colour version in Norway. The image depicts a young boy and girl playing the traditional game of ‘Conkers’. The Conker, a seed of the horse chestnut tree, is threaded onto a piece of string, each player strikes each other’s conker until one breaks. The strongest conker will win.

With JPS poetic play on words one of the conkers is replaced by the globe. JPS’s clever switch changes the composition of the piece. We all have it in us to conquer anything we put our minds to, lets dream big and conquer the world!

He worked for more than two years in Stroud and London, as a fabricator for the renowned British artist Damien Hirst, giving him an informative insight into the Art world. He continues to explore his painting.

" I get frustrated with my thought processes and self questioning. I try to empty my mind. I don't want to know what's going to happen on the canvas. I start somewhere, then every subsequent mark is a response to what I see. Then I stop when it feels right. Every mark is evident and meaningful. The result is an honest and playful journey. "

James's work has been shown internationally including New York City, Stockholm, Singapore and London. He lives and works near Liverpool.

Elizabeth Hayley: Malleable Objects, at Snape Maltings

PRESS RELEASE:  

Elizabeth Hayley: Malleable Objects, at Snape Maltings

11th June - 9th July

Venue: The Gallery

Elizabeth Hayley's extraordinary photographs of The Maltings and other traditional environments such as mills and boatyards, are here presented in large scale on metal, including the steel used in boat hulls which provides a strong yet fragile foundation.

Though she lives locally, Hayley has previously exhibited in Paris and London and so we are delighted to welcome her to the Gallery at Snape Maltings and pleased that she took as one of her subjects those Maltings buildings which are yet to be restored.

The images Hayley creates are malleable too, through the process she invokes and her use of hand-brushed marks in photographic emulsion and the layered tones of her work. The insights she reveals, glimpses into a disappearing world of places and objects over a century old and her focus on their struggle to survive, is fascinating, as is the development of these spaces and structures to support new uses.

Visible Traces offers an alternative showing of works by Ian Stephenson (1934-2000) in the context of a select group show. Stephenson was a pioneering English abstract artist who characteristically splattered colours in layers towards obliteration. His work featured in Antonioni’s film Blow Up (1966), an iconic vision of London in the swinging sixties. The film’s aura of elegance and cool was transferred onto the artist and made him fashionable, but obscured the serious intent behind his lifelong investigation into visual density.

Countless happenings in time present as one simultaneous expression. Emptiness filled with matter. Solids filled with space.” Andrew Forge (The Independent)

Curators Julian Page and Joanna Bryant seek to provide new insights into this underrated artist, by contextualising his work with that of three emerging artists. A series of his prints are shown alongside sculptures by Jayne Wilton, paintings by Robinson/McMahon and photographs by Elizabeth Hayley.

Visible Traces draws attention to Stephenson’s work in a new, contemporary context and suggests links between these diverse artists and one of the pioneers of British 60’s abstract art.

Recent Limited Edition Prints by Elizabeth Hayley

Elizabeth Hayley’s silver gelatin prints on steel and brass, seek to trace a record and likeness of the experience of life lived on and surrounded by water, making references to the past and impermanence. The pictorial quality of her photographic tableaux correlates with their documentary value: about life on a ship, old vessels, or boat communities; about ways of seeing and ways of doing, yet they also invite us to experience the density and transparency of time. (Julian Page)

Katherine Jones - Xenotopia - Gibberd Gallery

xenotopia - katherine jones - atelier ji

From Friday November 6 to Thursday December 17, 2015, Katherine Jones will be exhibiting new work in :Xenotopia at the Gibberd Gallery, Harlow. 

:Xenotopia is a concept and exhibition relating to the manifestation of architecture though the medium and expanded field of printed matter.

:Xenotopia is a group exhibition that explores ‘out-of-place places’, particularly strange, fictitious architecture, and ‘xenospaces’, imagined, meta-geographic locations that exist only theoretically, ethereally or subconsciously. ‘Xenotopia’ is a term coined by British travel writer Robert McFarlane to describe an uncanny landscape. Xeno is the Greek word for ‘other’, or that which is ‘different in origin’, while topia is the suffix deployed by Thomas Moore in the title of his celebrated 1516 book, Utopia – a work of political philosophy manifested through the depiction of a fictionalized island society.

Through the expanded medium of print, each of the 14 internationally prominent artists showing in :Xenotopia offer their own unique explorations and visualisations of similarly fictional but redolent places of psycho-geographic ambiguity or putative architectural paradise. The works, which display a range of, often, tangential, anachronistic or merely tenuous connections and approaches to the printmaking medium, marry unfamiliar and idealised elements in a kind of flux where the alien meets the quotidian and the recognizable becomes unknown.

Curated by artist Louise Clarke, :Xenotopia is partly inspired by post-war British architectural modernism and utopian social planning as embodied in ‘new towns’ such as Harlow, where the Gibberd Gallery is located. Housed within the town’s Civic Centre, the gallery, which opened in 1984, is the work of visionary Harlow architect Sir Frederick Gibberd and is run by the Harlow Art Trust, who are also responsible for installing and maintaining the town’s abundance of sculpture and other public art.

Artists: Emily Allchurch, Amba Sayal-Bennett, Berenika Boberska, Pablo Bronstein, Rachel Clewlow, Noémie Goudal, Sarah Anne Johnson, Katherine Jones, Catriona Leahy, Theo Miller, Paul Noble, Grayson Perry, David Price and Jenny Wiener
