Preview: Thursday 2 May 6-9pm eXposé – unveiling the truth. Art can reveal and even create truth in their works according to philosophers such as Martin Heidegger. Twelve contemporary artists invite you to enjoy their work at Espacio Gallery’s latest exhibition, eXposé. Each artist brings their own unique interpretation of the worlds which inspire their art, from individuals caught in a moment of time in busy populated areas through to the interplay between water, light and reflection through to the built environment. Revealing their responses to these inspirations through their artwork is akin to a moment of confession, affirmation and delight. This opens up a discourse with you, the viewer. Art is a conversation and we would love you to join us in the conversation by visiting this extraordinary and exciting exhibition.
eXposé portrays the fertile and diverse aspects of the artists’ collective experience. As with other Espacio exhibitions, the artists are actively involved with the gallery and you can expect to find several invigilating at Emergence each day should you wish to discover more about the artwork.

Material World 25-30 April 2013
Preview: Thursday 25 April 6-9pm Material World celebrates the physicality of art and illustrates what happens when we make art in an unstable, even magical place of change and transformation.
This show is as much about the process of making art as it is about the materials used to make it. It demonstrates that creative freedom can be found within rules and methodologies and that working with a single, unconventional material can produce unexpected results. At the same time Material World also explores complexity and the consequences of bringing different materials into dialogue with one another.
Eleven artists have joined forces to create the paintings, photos, sculptures, assemblages, installations and prints that make up Material World. For all these artists engagement with materials forms a central part of artistic practice: materials and processes fire their imaginations and fuel their vision of what is possible.

A Room of One's Own Women's History Month 14-19 March 2013
Private View: Thursday 14 March 6-9pm As part of Women’s History Month, a mixed-gender group of 12 artists offer their personal responses to the ideas presented in Virginia Woolf's feminist and modernist essay A Room of One's Own published in 1929. It takes its name from the author's belief that "a room of one's own and money in one's pocket" are essential to women's creative freedom.
Originally a lecture given to students at Girton College, Cambridge, A Room of One’s Own was expanded by Woolf for publication and includes her thoughts on education, marriage, money and property as she casts a critical and humorous eye over the history of women’s literature, ending in a passionate call to her readers to open their minds and throw themselves into creative endeavour.

Ahmed Farooqui Mysteries of the Organism 7-12 March 2013
Gallery 2 Private Views: Thursday 7 March 6-9pm Saturday 9 March 4-7pm Ahmed Farooqui has created an immersive installation especially for the Espacio Gallery, where perspective is banished and the viewer is surrounded by a dark world of eerie, weightless entities that tremble on the edge of materiality. This is null-space, revealed by the stern gaze of science and recreated by the artist as space opera. There are characters and narratives here enough for many lifetimes.
Ahmed Farooqui is a sculptor and installation artist with an interest in turning the artistic gaze on scientific insights. "Mysteries of the Organism" brings together a number of new large scale installations and sculptures that mark the artist's journey of discovery into the biological sciences.

fail better 22-27 November 2012
Private View: Thursday 22 November 6-9pm
'Try again. Fail again. Fail better'
As a group of artists our individuality is evident in the forms of our expression and the various mediums we choose to work in. But the concept of resistance and conflict which is essential to the creative process is a place where we all occupy a common ground and sympathy.
Continual questioning and deconstructing the making of art keeps the creative process alive rather than it becoming safe and known.
Failure is always present. Letting go of the fantasy of what might be to the reality of what is takes courage and acceptance, but never complacency.
The toleration of this place of ambivalence is the essence of a creative life and crucial to our work as artists and art therapists.

Liz Whiteman Smith WLTM 13-18 September 2012
Private View: Thursday 13 September 6-8pm Closing Party: Saturday 22 September 1-7pm In an age of super connectivity Liz Whiteman Smith has codified sets and sub-sets of internet users. Individuals who tweet and share with the web community; the intimacy of which highlights their isolation.
The paintings have a cool detachment, redolent of the Bechers’ water towers, their complex mass standing out from the empty space around them. The grids though codified do not need to be view as a whole. The serial repetition serves to highlight their singularity and draws you to an individual.
Whiteman Smith is a figurative painter whose starting point is strangers, living in remote areas. Her graphic clarity emphasises the disjointed nature of the photo-face that we send out into the world, trusting it to communicate our message.
WLTM is her first solo exhibition, and brings together her explorations of lonely individuals like faces in a book of stamps their repetition increases their power.
Just like the Olympics we are having a closing ceremony.
This Saturday 22 September by popular demand we are opening Liz's Solo Show: WLTM for one last day!
Wine and snacks will be served during our regular hours of 1-7pm.
So come along and take advantage of your last chance to see our first Solo Show at Espacio Gallery!
Hope to see you there.
