Abstraction and Emotion: paintings by Samantha Laub, Jason Sweidan and David Taylor @ Highgate Gallery
Nov 13 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

In this group show, Samantha Laub, Jason Sweidan and David Taylor present vibrant abstract paintings, influenced by abstract expressionism.  The paintings demonstrate distinctive emotional responses to the natural.

Samantha, Jason and David have been developing a set of unique styles in close interaction with each other – all with strong colour use.  The theme of present and remembered emotion displays their distinctive styles whilst drawing on a common theme.

Samantha’s works begin as spontaneous outpouring of energy and emotion that she then develops and refines into finished pieces.  Her paintings are visceral, full of movement and texture.

Jason applies oil on canvases to construct and deconstruct images that reflect elements of nature.  His paintings are predominantly fluid, physical and textured using gravity to allow the paint to evolve.

David’s work reflects memories of the natural in which strong colour use is combined with loose natural references that evoke a sense of fluidity, water or landscape.

All three artists are local to the exhibition and originally met at the Hampstead School of Art (HSOA).

Samantha is Creative Director of Gorgeous Brewery based in Highgate and also works in advertising, as well as being a painter.  She has exhibited at a number of HSOA exhibitions and was also shortlisted in the National Open Art exhibition in 2016.

Jason works in investor relations as well as being an artist.  He recently held his first solo art exhibition and has exhibited at several HSOA summer exhibitions and the Green and Stone summer exhibition 2019.  His work is held in private collections in the UK, USA, Spain and Bermuda.

David is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and Professor Emeritus at the University of Brighton.  He is a leading academic social theorist and writer as well as a painter and sociologist of art.

Exhibition continues until 21 November

HGO’s new production of Puccini’s ‘La Bohème – fully staged with chorus and orchestra @ Jacksons Lane Theatre
Nov 13 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Waste Not Want Not: Information evening @ Highgate Society
Nov 13 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Waste Not Want Not

Our speakers will
address the ‘waste hierarchy’ – how we can reduce, reuse
and recycle more waste, and the meeting is open to all.
We’ll hear from Carina Millstone who is Executive
Director of Feedback, a charity that campaigns to
transform our food systems, cutting the impact on our
planet, particularly from waste. Leigh McAlea will
discuss the impact of fast fashion – she is Head of
Communications at TRAID, a charity which aims to
“stop clothes from being thrown away.” We’ll also find
out what councils can do to tackle plastic waste from Ian
Kershaw of Haringey Council.
Addressing waste disposal – at the end of the waste
hierarchy – will be Ursula Taylor, Head of Legal and
Governance at North London Waste Authority. Ursula
will discuss what happens to our waste – many of us will
have been horrified to see images of piles of British
‘recycling’ strewn across the shores of South East Asia.
Our speakers will address what we can do as individuals
to reduce waste and discuss the sorts of policies that we
should be demanding from local and national politicians.
Following the talks there will be a Q & A session.

Night at the Museum: Climate Change – Professor Joanna Haigh @ Highgate School Museum
Nov 18 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Night at the Museum: Climate Change 

Professor Joanna Haigh, Imperial College, London

Credit: Gerard Van der Leun

The world is warming faster than has ever been observed in the past. Overwhelmingly scientists are of the opinion that this is largely due to the effect of gases released into theatmosphere by human activities. How can we be sure of this? And what can we say about the future? This talk will look at the scientific evidence for climate change and discuss how increasing concentrations of ‘greenhouse gases’ create an imbalance in the Earth’s energy budget with impacts on temperature, sea level and weather patterns. We will see how physics is used to construct computer models to investigate past and future climate and consider what needs to be done for the world to avoid dangerous levels of warming.

Joanna Haigh is Professor of Atmospheric Physics and, until her recent retirement, Co-Director of the Grantham Institute – Climate Change and the Environment, at Imperial College London. For five years prior to that she was the Head of Imperial’s Physics Department. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society, the Institute of Physics and the City & Guilds Institute and an Honorary Fellow of Somerville College, Oxford and of the Royal Meteorological Society of whichshe is also a past-President. She has been a Lead Author for the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and shares a Nobel Peace Prize with several hundred others for that work. She has been awarded prizes for her work on the interface between atmospheric science and solar physics and was appointed CBE for her services to physics in 2013.

Talks take place on Mondays at 7pm in the  School Museum on Southwood Lane (N6 5EE). Refreshments, including wine, are available from 6.30 pm and afterwards.

In this group show, Samantha Laub, Jason Sweidan and David Taylor present vibrant abstract paintings, influenced by abstract expressionism.  The paintings demonstrate distinctive emotional responses to the natural.

Samantha, Jason and David have been developing a set of unique styles in close interaction with each other – all with strong colour use.  The theme of present and remembered emotion displays their distinctive styles whilst drawing on a common theme.

Samantha’s works begin as spontaneous outpouring of energy and emotion that she then develops and refines into finished pieces.  Her paintings are visceral, full of movement and texture.

Jason applies oil on canvases to construct and deconstruct images that reflect elements of nature.  His paintings are predominantly fluid, physical and textured using gravity to allow the paint to evolve.

David’s work reflects memories of the natural in which strong colour use is combined with loose natural references that evoke a sense of fluidity, water or landscape.

All three artists are local to the exhibition and originally met at the Hampstead School of Art (HSOA).

Samantha is Creative Director of Gorgeous Brewery based in Highgate and also works in advertising, as well as being a painter.  She has exhibited at a number of HSOA exhibitions and was also shortlisted in the National Open Art exhibition in 2016.

Jason works in investor relations as well as being an artist.  He recently held his first solo art exhibition and has exhibited at several HSOA summer exhibitions and the Green and Stone summer exhibition 2019.  His work is held in private collections in the UK, USA, Spain and Bermuda.

David is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and Professor Emeritus at the University of Brighton.  He is a leading academic social theorist and writer as well as a painter and sociologist of art.

Exhibition continues until 21 November
