Very pleased to have four paintings selected by Cate Cheng, gallery director, for the forthcoming exhibition ‘BIRTH/REBIRTH’ at Boundary Art in Cardiff Bay, a unique combined gallery and tea room. Exhibition runs from 25 March to 6 May 2017, gallery open Wednesday to Sunday 11am to 6pm. (Closed Monday and Tuesday.) www.boundaryart.com Photos will be posted as soon as available! The East/West philosophy of the gallery links in with my long term personal interest in Asian culture, and my study and practice of Tai Ji Quan and Qi Gong. FurtherInformation about Boundary Art Cardiff’s newest art space, Boundary Art opened in 2015 and devotes itself to the fusion of communication and promotion between Western and Chinese cultures. The gallery is fast developing a reputation for dynamic and distinctive programming to support artists from across the visual spectrum and from across Wales and beyond. Visitors have the unique opportunity to browse original art works and to relax in their Chinese tea room.
The core ideology of Boundary Art has always been about the communication and trans-boundary of the arts, culture and thoughts. The gallery offers an international platform for artists, curators and writers and welcomes all audiences, aiming to encourage everyone to engage with art, prompting questions and supporting debate.
In William MacKenzie’s art blog he wrote a very interesting feature on the SWA annual exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London. Click on the link below to see the full post.
This is what he wrote about my painting titled Reach. ”Andie Clay’s ’Reach’ is done in the frustratingly unhelpfully described “mixed media”. I would like to know what. There is some acrylic in there maybe. I like the movement in this piece with the bird like marks exploding out of the monstrous shape. Energetic piece.”
Have just heard that three paintings from my musician series have been selected and will be on exhibition at the Mall Galleries in June. ‘After Silence 3′ (above right) comes from my music conductor series.
The 154th Annual exhibition of the Society of Women Artists runs from 5 to 13 June and will be open 10am to 5pm daily, closing at 3pm on the 13th. Do get in touch if you would like an invitation to the Private View.
Art Moves of Chelsea collected four of my musician paintings from outside the RWA in Bristol recently. They will deliver these to the Mall Galleries on the 25th of April for selection for the 154th Annual Exhibition which runs from the 5 – 13 June 2015. This painting is from my series of music conductors.
16 minutes, 34 seconds into the programme on Tuesday 31st of March it was good to finally see the film shot last August in St Davids, Pembrokeshire when eleven artists, ranging from professionals to students to amateurs spent a day drawing as many portraits as we could. This was in support of Grahame Hurd-Wood who is working on a project to paint every resident in the UK’s smallest city – the film featuring his project was shown on the previous day.
Am pleased that some good shots of both myself and my chalk pastel portraits were included. You can see a brief glimpse of me working on my portrait of Dominic (above) in the film.
Catch the programme on iplayer for 28 days from date of transmission.
Sorry everybody but I have just found out that the films due to be transmitted on the 23rd-24th of March have been cancelled. New dates are Monday 30th and Tuesday 31st of March and my work will appear on the Tuesday programme.
Came across this blog recently. Flattered that she likes my work, and that she thinks they are painted by a male artist!
“These are some pictures from his sound and vibration gallery and his earth and water gallery. I absolutely admire this work as each stroke works perfectly combine with big bold strokes to small lines, curved or straight or sharp, and in each picture, each of these strokes works so well with the colours that it automatically hits you with emotions. Not only does he do this, but he also draws out basic lines which can be seen as figures or objects or nature and gets your mind exploring the image more creatively.”
I was pleased to welcome you all to my new year open studio-both local regulars and new visitors from near and far, including a couple who had seen my work on exhibition in London and travelled down to visit me in my studio.
Transmission dates are pencilled in for Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th of January, 2015 but are subject to change. One film features Grahame Hurd-Wood and his ongoing project painting portraits of every resident in St Davids, Pembrokeshire. The second film shows myself and eleven other artists rising to the challenge of drawing as many portraits as we could in one day. This took place on a lovely sunny day at The Goat Street Gallery, which overlooks St Davids Cathedral, on the 7th of August 2014.
