The gallery’s first exhibition of British artist Ann-Marie James (b. 1981) - Sea Change - in collaboration with Karsten Schubert. The show coincided with a project by James at Kettle’s Yard and several solo shows in museums across the UK.
James reimagines and reinterprets historical images, creating vibrant and innovative work.
Sea Change presents new work referencing two master printmakers, Katsushika Hokusai (1760 – 1849) and Albrecht Dürer (1471 – 1528). A series of nine abstract paintings on aluminium panels respond to Hokusai’s The Great Wave (c.1829). These will be shown alongside intricate, monochrome drawings inspired by Dürer’s clouds in Madonna with a Monkey (1498) and The Sea Monster (1498 – 1501).
