Oliver Braid: The Nude Ignity; at Vane

The Nude Ignity

  • to

Oliver Braid’s work has been led by attempts to answer a question first posed by writer, raconteur and gay icon, Quentin Crisp in 1981: how, if at all, may an object express its maker? Opposed to tackling Crisp’s question directly, Braid is committed to oblique approaches in order to generate new angles of understanding.

Jock Mooney: Who Are You and What Do You Want?; at Vane

Who Are You and What Do You Want?

  • to

In ‘Who Are You and What Do You Want?’, Jock Mooney presents an elaborate tableau of sculptural objects, drawings and sound, that functions as a personal reflection on the artist’s life.

Flora Whiteley: Present Continuous; at Vane

Present Continuous

  • to

In ‘Present Continuous’, Flora Whiteley presents new paintings that continue her investigation into filmic and stage-like spaces, combining layers of source material to create enigmatic, suggestive scenes.

Jennie Speirs Grant: Observations not taken today…; at Vane

Observations not taken today…

  • to

Jennie Speirs Grant presents a series of drawings transcribed directly from spring birdsong. Using a system of visual notation, each is a representation of an ever-changing soundscape. The series explores Speirs Grant’s interest in drawing as a means of collecting data from the world. In this instance, the works are sequences of data extracted from a living environment. They differ from the more usual forms of observational drawing in that the information gathered is auditory rather than visual.

Jorn Ebner: Across the wounded universe; at Vane

Across the wounded universe

  • to

Jorn Ebner’s recent work has emerged from his interests in the danse macabre, the mediaeval allegory on death, the literature of American novelist William S Burroughs and French poet Charles Baudelaire, and the songs of John Lennon, whose murder had enormous impact on the artist as a teenager.

Ben Applegarth: Lost In The Woods/Getting Better; at Vane

Lost In The Woods/Getting Better

  • to

The work of Ben Applegarth in ‘Lost In The Woods/Getting Better’ is concerned with evolving geometrical structures, a fascination with mathematical patterns and the literal and figurative role of perspective.

Amie Rangel: Dwelling; at Vane


  • to

Amie Rangel’s exhibition, ‘Dwelling’, consists of large-scale charcoal drawings on linen, mixed media drawings on paper, and stone lithographs. This new body of work represents her ongoing investigation of the organisation of spatial constructs within modern society. Rangel’s work builds on an observation-based practice that is rooted in traditional methods, which translates moments and nuances of existing and occupied structures through perceptive and expressive drawings.
