Colour & I Are One

Bankley member James Roper is exhibiting in a group exhibition celebrating the joy of colour through painting, sculpture and film.

It was Paul Klee who exclaimed “Colour and I are one. I am a painter” following an epiphany while on a trip to Tunisia in 1914.

Each of the seven colourists represented in Saul Hay Gallery’s fourth exhibition bring to their work a deep understanding of the language and power of colour to evoke an emotional response in the viewer.

Piecework by James Ackerley

Exhibition dates: 16th September - 22nd October

For Piecework, the fifth exhibition in Oriel Wrecsam’s PERICLO series, James Ackerley will present an installation as a twisted yet refined paradigm of his studio. Ackerley’s meticulous process-led practice will come to the fore in this enlightening display-cum-physical catalogue. His recent work puts a strong emphasis on the studio as a place of making, taking-apart and reassembling. Using a narrow palette of inexpensive, malleable materials, he makes small scale object-based works as a method of exploring the fundamental principles of art making and studio-practice, whilst also drawing elements from design and architecture. The exhibition timeline will be separated into three increments, reflecting the very modular and incomplete nature of Ackerley’s work.

James Ackerley (b. Wrexham, 1990) is a Manchester-based artist, who previously studied at Coleg Cambria, Wrexham, and Manchester Metropolitan University. He currently holds a studio at Bankley Studios, Manchester.

Start Where You Are: Second Degree Potentias

Bloc Projects, 71 Eyre Lane, Sheffield, S1 4RB

10 September 2016 – 17 September 2016
Wednesday – Saturday 12 – 6 pm
Preview: Friday 9 September 6 – 8 pm

Start Where You Are: Second Degree Potentias is a new exhibition that will explore the idea of the Potentia – an alternative form of social organisation centered around human flourishing and environmental sustainability. A Potentia is similar to a Utopia, but does not carry the baggage of idealism and impossibility often associated with Utopia; a Potentia has its roots in the here-and-now, and it is possible to map out the steps that can take us from the present day to a Potentia.

Presented at Bloc Projects, an artist-led project space in the centre of Sheffield from 10th to 17th September, it will include newly commissioned and recent works by 11 artists based across the UK: Clare Bonetree, Sandra Bouguerch, Roger Bygott, Tim Etchells, Annie Harrison, Ellie Harrison, Jane Lawson, James Marriott, John Newling, Monty, Claire Tindale and Lea Torp Nielsen.
