Review by Matt Dennis on ‘Transformations’

A wonderful review by Matt Dennis for Instant Love Land, exploring the artworks and their relationships, within the current show at Linden Hall Studio - 'Transformations'. '.... Housework, they say, is only visible when it hasn’t been done. By the same token, the conventions that govern how artworks are supposed to be displayed- especially abstract ones, where considerations of form and arrangement are absolutely paramount- only seem to fully reveal themselves when they are flouted. … [Read more...]

Making a Mark in Deal – Corinna Lotz

Making Mark in Deal  December 8th 2017 by Corinna Lotz   Deal, in Kent’s far east, has managed to preserve its largely isolated and unspoilt nature. It remains a working fishing town with a picturesque old quarter, barracks and a forbidding Tudor castle, all strung along a shingle beach. Like other Kent coastal towns it is a treasure-trove of natural beauty and historic sites.  But they are also scarred by faltering economies, unemployment and poor neighbourhoods. … [Read more...]

Picture at an Exhibition by Tony Nandi

The opening of the Linden Hall Gallery’s Winter Show was on December 4th 2016, and as I was exhibiting I was also taking a few pics. A few of these I turned into a panorama (Pic 1), which the gallery used as a Christmas card which has attracted a fair bit of curiosity as to the techniques used, so the easiest way to answer questions is for me to blog. The process involves pre-visualisation and the use of Photoshop ‘auto’ techniques, so is not complicated, if you have the software, but does … [Read more...]

How can we improve people’s perceptions of Art History as an academic discipline?

The Courtauldian, Issue 14, December 2016 People perceive art history to be simply the study of fine art, rather than a broader survey of cultural development through imagery; Art History students should not have to justify the academic status of their subject. The solution to improving peoples’ perceptions lies in the ned to more widely educate people on the complexities of the subject. No matter which piece of art or architecture you see, there were personal, political, sociological … [Read more...]

Pictures at an Exhibition: Linden Hall Winter Show 2016 by Tony Nandi

Three very different pictures feature in the Winter Group Show at Linden Hall Studio in Deal. Choosing pictures to submit was a difficult one, from an archive of thousands. The criteria was that the images had to be accessible to an audience many of whom may have little experience of dance. So after much deliberation I came down to these, each of which I believe work for different reasons. So I thought it might be useful, if only for me, to explain why these were chosen. ‘iTMOi’ Akram Khan … [Read more...]

Since that time the gallery has gone from strength to strength, with a multitude of artists, artworks, styles and media … [Read more...]

Phoebe Brown: Seeing, Thinking, Feeling: on Artistic Beauty

EXTRACT FROM: 'Seeing, Thinking, Feeling: A discussion about the morality and use of artistic beauty within curatorial practice' by Phoebe Brown The relevance of beauty within specific curatorial practice is most clearly established when Arthur Danto wrote in After the End of Art (1997), that Contemporary art is too pluralistic in intention and realization to allow itself to be captured along a single dimension, and indeed an argument can be made that enough of it is incompatible with the … [Read more...]

‘Looking at the Familiar’ by Catherine Field

Often it is in the very obvious that we can find inspiration. I travel to London a lot. I live in Woking, so it's an easy journey. I alight the train (oh yes, I love that word. I imagine gracefully floating from the train to the platform, carefully minding the gap), and disappear into the crowds. There are always crowds at Waterloo Station.
