  • Review: Essential Elements, St Bride’s Gallery, Liverpool | Corridor8 —
    the classical medium of paint on paper or canvas each reinventing their materials to produce a diverse range of work Starting at the top of the building opposite the impressive antique organ on the top tier of the church is Decanting Desire by J Chuhan a collection produced during her Time and Space residency at Metal in Liverpool Chuhan s work was selected for the show months in advance allowing her to create a site specific response to space and her large scale paintings on thin paper span the breadth of the walls upstairs Complimented beautifully by the purple and green stained glass windows Chuhan uses rich purples reds and golds to create her gestural impressionistic paintings using paint as an illustrator would a pencil to sketch with the brush a stripped back visual depicting an incomplete human presence There is a certain restless quality to her painting as splatters of rogue paint escape across the borders of the page Her images are recreated from vivid memories and daily observations a brief meeting with a commuter on the train or a passer by in the street is realised in passionate bold colours as she relocates these private moments of observation into the public gallery space Boxers by German artist Buffy Klama is a series of images installed in the stairwell The first few paintings are realised in angry dark blues and reds and by the time the visitor has descended the first flight of stairs the figures in these paintings have become monochrome Klama insists on having little or no interpretation to accompany her work and Brian reveals that the series is a response to the loss of her mother Knowing the context of the work the images no longer symbolise violence but the battle of the self and the struggle to accept what has happened In these black and white portrayals of loss and stasis the solo figures appear hunched hairless skinny and passive not what you would expect from athletes in boxing gloves Finally at the bottom of the staircase the penultimate series of pastel pink boxers represent a vibrant transformation as if life has returned to the artist as she accepts the loss An eerie sense of motion washes over the final painting as a bodiless arm punches the lonely figure perhaps a lasting reminder of what has taken place Places Apart by Uzma Sultan an MA graduate from the Slade School of Art is disappointing in comparison small paintings of perfume bottles and the interior of the home are presented using repetitive patterns These snapshots of life fail to capture the imagination in the same way Chuhan s recreations of stolen glances manage and are not representative of the usual scale and quality of this artist s work The last series of work in the show is my favourite by British artist Jane Walker who manipulates perspective in her large scale cityscapes In Hidden Games Walker s paintings take inspiration from her penchant for climbing tall

  • Review: Show Me The Money: The Image of Finance, 1700 To The Present – NGCA, Sunderland | Corridor8 —
    in the commodity that both are vying to control The opposing screens create tension and the Nigerian s addresses to camera unwittingly become conversations with the traders The title of this work also acts as a declaration regarding the tone of this exhibition summoning Marxist theory the canonical modernist text of the same name and a poetic rendering of our consumption of resources entwined with our current material ephemeral modes of exchange The intent of Boulos is met with some humour in Bill Balaskas The Market Will Save Us 2013 The banner which was hung from the RCA was misinterpreted by some of the institutions skate holders from the financial sector Its perception as a gracious acceptance of the neo liberal principals endemic in higher education further illustrates the uncomfortable relationship between education the art world and the financial sector Artists featured such as Geraldine Juarez and Robin Bhattacharya explore the properties of currency whilst Simon Roberts and Immo Klink look to the lexicon devices and workforces of the financial sector for their subject matter William Powhida s Griftopia 2011 is perhaps one of the most honest works in the exhibition when it comes to an outsider attempting to untangle the mess of global finance Giants of finance hover around strings of text which fluctuate between fact and conspiracy Any attempt at finding linear narrative is disastrous but one thing is clear Looming ominously at the centre of the work is the Randian ogre Alan Greenspan He may as well be depicted with the third eye of provenance on his head such is his implied role in shaping global economics The fascination with some of the shadowy figures behind the institutions is reflected in some of the historic work featured in the exhibition A number of prints by Hogarth and
