Art Invite

(From Dave Clarke) 
I'm attaching an invitation to any readers interested in attending the Private View of Gina Southgate's Exhibition at the Dennis Kilgallon Gallery at South Barn, near Allen Banks, Northumberland NE47 8JP on Friday 5th May from 4pm to 8pm.
Gina is an artist best known for her  paintings made in real time at jazz gigs. She has worked in our region with Jazz North East and at the Gateshead International Jazz Festival and her work is on permanent display at Sage Gateshead. She also paints landscapes.
(Press release)
Set amidst Northumberland's stunning landscape Dennis Kilgallon presents two exciting, accomplished, artists at his 'Gallery in the Hills'. Their work though different in scale, medium, and approach, deals with texture, mark making and the physicality of the artistic process. The exquisite detail of Davis's delicate porcelain forms are echoed in contrast in Southgate's vibrant, sumptuous canvases. It is a harmonious parallel brought together by sculptor Kilgallon to form an unmissable exhibition in his 'superb gallery'.
GINA SOUTHGATE 'Gina Southgate captures every note in paint' Jez Nelson - Jazz on 3.
As a painter of live music, best known on the international Jazz scene, where for 3 decades Southgate has captured the frisson of live music during the real time of performance. Observing the relationship between the musician and instrument she captures the energy and essence of the gig in the real time. She carries this unique style and vibrancy into her abstract and landscape work. ‘I have a strong relationship with the music scene. My live painting is concerned with the essence of the moment and my alignment to that moment. Musicians fuel my output and though I have a ‘style’ it is the result of what I hear and see live. I try to work in the landscape in the same way following the energy of the sky and the dance of the light where I like to paint against the onset of nightfall when the colours have their most clarity and intensity.
I like structures that humans imprint on the natural world. In the studio I work on abstracts, layering colour and texture to a convincing surface trying to avoid stasis or cliché. Resolving my own experiments with reference to the great painters and designers of the 20th century'.
JUDITH DAVIS 'I have exhibited my ceramic work for over 25 years, showing at major art and craft fairs and galleries, work has been included in publications about contemporary ceramics. Inspiration comes from the tideline, ripples in sand and water, and the natural forms found there-such as urchin shells and pebbles. I am also influenced by materials themselves, by processes that allow the uncovering of marks inlaid into the porcelain through the making process, revealing traces of my hand’s interaction with the clay. The work is meant to be touched, it is both tactile and sensual.'
