LUX is delighted to present a new film, Marvell Park, by Richard Layzell on the LUX website from 1 April to 1 July 2021. lux.org.uk

Marvell Park is a new film produced by Richard Layzell as part of his ongoing work as LUX’s Creative Ecologist engaged with the material and context of Waterlow Park in Highgate where the organisation is based. Tracking the extraordinary year of 2020, the film is a playful and personal mediation on a state of being and interacting with nature and the space of the park. The film continues Layzell’s research project, The Naming which seeks to challenge and question how, through categorization and naming, we distance ourselves from aspects of the natural world and the cultural world.

LUX is delighted to present a new film, Marvell Park, by Richard Layzell on the LUX website from 1 April to 1 July 2021. lux.org.uk

Marvell Park is a new film produced by Richard Layzell as part of his ongoing work as LUX’s Creative Ecologist engaged with the material and context of Waterlow Park in Highgate where the organisation is based. Tracking the extraordinary year of 2020, the film is a playful and personal mediation on a state of being and interacting with nature and the space of the park. The film continues Layzell’s research project, The Naming which seeks to challenge and question how, through categorization and naming, we distance ourselves from aspects of the natural world and the cultural world.

The Poetics of Print.  Original prints by Bodenpress Artists.  28 May – 10 June 2021

The fourteen Bodenpress artists whose work will be shown in The Poetics of Print exhibition have taken their inspiration from John Betjeman’s poetry, particularly ’Metroland’.  These nostalgic poems which have a sense of humour and a serious undertone reflect travel and life along the Metropolitan line, and have been interpreted in a contemporary and vibrant way by the artists.

Metroland – the area reached by the Metropolitan Line which connects the ‘smoke’ to the ‘suburbs’ – is where most of the artists hail from.  Living and working in Buckinghamshire they have been exhibiting together for over ten years.  Bodenpress is a small printmaking studio in Chesham where artists create works using traditional and modern methods.

This group exhibition showcases a variety of printmaking techniques such as Polymer etching, Linocut, Collagraph, Drypoint, Monotype and Screenprint.  The work is varied in style, some figurative, some architectural, and each artist uses Betjeman’s poems to create their compositions with great variety and colour.  All the work is uniform in size with each artist’s interpretations showing in similar white frames for a pleasing exhibition layout.

Printmaking is an intriguing art form, with many techniques and processes used to create original fine art prints.  Some are unique, others are part of a small limited edition, and all are hand inked. These are for sale along with a catalogue that has been produced for the exhibition.

The artists have exhibited together in various galleries and art spaces, including Bucks County Museum in Aylesbury, and have had works in national print shows such as at Bankside Gallery, Mall Galleries and the Royal Academy in London.  Highgate Gallery is an ideal space for The Poetics of Print as the area has an important connection to Betjeman where he lived and went to school as a young boy.

 

Talks The Poetics of Print    1 June & 8 June, 6 – 7pm

June 1st – Andrew Martin, ‘Betjeman, the Metropolitan Railway and the Romance of Trains’.

June 8th – Mark Ovenden, ‘Transforming London’s Look: 150 years of London Underground design’.
