The Searchers contemporary ‘One Year Gallery Project’ was opened in Bristol by practicing artist and exhibition maker Ruth Piper in September 2012. The gallery program focus’s on a rich seam of contemporary art in all its forms, providing a commercial venue with curated shows including artists from Bristol and London; in particular those whose work side steps fashion and conveys a deeply felt personal engagement with their materials and subject matter.
It was John Ford’s classic western ‘The Searchers’ that inspired the title for the gallery. Obsessive and curious by nature artists travel alone, searching through unfamiliar territory, hoping for fresh insights & new configurations.
Here’s a short film which documents the show with a soundtrack by the Lund Quartet:
The solo exhibition ‘Lost in Transition’ at the Searchers Contemporary in Bristol represented a distillation of a thousand images of land and sea taken during a recent residency at Brisons Veor, Cape Cornwall. Through photography and film the exhibition explores the relationship between the land, sea and sky, specifically the transitions between those three elements.
Very pleased to have had ‘City Rising i’ selected for the RWA’s Autumn exhibition, and more than happy to have won the Louise Copping Fine Art Award.
‘City Rising i’ is a floating Giclee print, aluminium dibond mounted / 40″ x 26″. The image was not shot in Tuscany, it’s Bristol!
The exhibition runs from Sunday 21st October until Sunday 30 December 2012.
