Marvell Park, Richard Layzell @ LUX Online

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.

Linda Landers: Memories, Dreams, Visions – Earth and Beyond. 12 -23 June 2021

A sense of magical realism pervades Linda Landers’ work where past memories meet the present, and landscapes and figures take on an aura of wonder and mysticism.

Linda draws inspiration for her paintings, etchings and wood engravings from nature and the people around her, as well as from NASA space missions which Landers heard about as a child, when she met Buzz Aldrin.

A sense of magical realism pervades Linda Landers’ paintings, etchings and wood engravings where past memories meet the present, and landscapes and figures take on an aura of wonder and mysticism.  Inspiration is drawn from nature and people around us, as well as from NASA space missions which Landers heard about as a child, when she met Buzz Aldrin.

Landers sites Etruscan art and frescos as a strong stylistic influence.  These sculptures and paintings are often peopled by smiling figures, and Landers’ own work is imbued with this sense of optimism; it celebrates the natural world and the joy of life and of the imagination.

There is a sculptural aspect to her work.  In the early paintings Landers builds up layers of paint to create texture as if a painted stucco.  In more recent work this building and layering is achieved rather through colour than a textured surface.  In wood engraving, the unprinted areas are cut and carved out in fine detail and the relief surface of the work is printed.

Landers was born in Hertfordshire but now lives and works in London.  She completed a Foundation course at Watford School of Art under Michael Werner and Peter Schmidt and went on to study Fine Art at Central St Martins under Cecil Collins.  She holds an MA in Art from the University of Kingston.  Landers won a printmaking prize at the Mall Galleries where she also taught.  She is a member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers and is a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

Highgate Gallery open Tues-Fri 1-5pm, Sat 11am-4pm, Sun 11am-5pm; closed Mon.

Marvell Park, Richard Layzell @ LUX Online

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.

He has been commissioned by most major public galleries and museums across the UK and completed many international artist residencies.

He has pioneered socially engaged practice and worked with many diverse communities nationally and internationally.

Deborah Levy) and Cream Pages (ed. Joshua Sofaer), an honorary associate of the National Review of Live Art and a course leader in fine art at University of the Arts London.
