Marburae Art Gallery
visual arts exhibition
"Influence’ is set to be one of the most anticipated art exhibitions of the summer."
Giant felt spray cans, visually bold and graphic illustrations
looking at sexuality and a site specific projection influenced by William
Morris’ pattern work. ‘Influence’ is set to be one of the most anticipated art
exhibitions of the summer.
London based artist Lucy Sparrow,
Polish born artist Marcelina Amelia and British Artist Kate Lynch will
transform the gallery and the intersection between art and craft is explored
within ‘Influence’ and is epitomised with Lucy Sparrow’s work. Lucy sets the
agenda for textiles within the urban art scene and her felt giant spray cans
epitomise this and steal the show wherever they are exhibited!
Lucy’s work has been shown alongside
Banksy in the ‘Urban Art Takeover’ and the Victoria and Albert museums touring
art show ‘ Urban Art Show’
In stark contrast to the bright, bold, felt
work our influence exhibition also features the delicate experimental print
work and site-specific projection inspired by William Morris and created by
Artist Kate Lynch. For those of you, like us, who long over William Morris’
pattern work then this is an exhibition not to be missed!
Our third and final artist is
Marcelina Amelia, Polish born and London based. Her illustrations draw together
the urban and funkiness of Lucy’s work with the delicate line work of Kate
Lynch’s pattern work. Her work consists of glorious bold illustrations that
look at sexuality and relationships in a style that is inspired by German
Expressionists Ernest Ludwig Kirchner and Egon Schiele.
Marburae Gallery is choosing to
showcase 3 outstanding artists for ‘Influence’, in a twist to their usual
exhibitions of 12 artists. This is in order to allow each artist space to
showcase large projects that draw the viewer closer to the artist and their way

will take place at Marburae Art Gallery at 7.30pm - 9.00pm on 5th
June 2014. The exhibition will run from 5th June 2014 – 26th
